This is an accelerated, interlocutory appeal from the trial courts denial of a special appearance filed by appellants, Trigeant Holdings, Ltd. and Trigeant Holdings, LLC (collectively "the Trigeant Holdings entities"). See Tex. Civ. Prac. & Rem. Code Ann. Â§ 51.014(a)(7) (Vernon Supp. 2004-2005). The Trigeant Holdings entities argue that the trial court erred by denying their special appearance for the following reasons: (1) the trial court lacked specific jurisdiction over the Trigeant Holdings entities because none of the appellees, Jerral W. Joness, causes of action arose out of activities that the Trigeant Holdings entities purposefully directed toward Texas; (2) the trial court lacked general personal jurisdiction over the Trigeant Holdings entities which had no continuous and systematic contacts with Texas; and (3) the exercise of personal jurisdiction over the Trigeant Holdings entities would not comport with fair play and substantial justice. We affirm the trial courts denial of the Trigeant Holdings entities special appearance.
