RedEaredSlider writes: A California court today asked that Sony show it has jurisdiction over the hacker who publicized a "jailbreak" for the Playstation 3 console.

Judge Susan Ilston, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, said Sony has to show that George Hotz, a hacker who posted a method of "jailbreaking" PS3 consoles, has some connection to California if Sony is to claim damages for his work on the PS3.
