Liles v. Liles

In Liles v. Liles, 289 Ark. 159, 711 S.W.2d 447 (1986), the Arkansas Supreme Court established a test for determining when a chancery court's jurisdiction over a legal claim pursuant to the clean-up doctrine is proper. The court wrote: "We have come to the position that unless the chancery court has no tenable nexus whatever to the claim in question we will consider the matter of whether the claim should have been heard there to be one of propriety rather than one of subject matter jurisdiction." (Liles, 289 Ark. at 175-76, 711 S.W.2d at 456.)
