Robinson v. Bossinger

In Robinson v. Bossinger, 195 Ark. 445, 112 S.W.2d 637 (1938), the court referred to Spratley v. Louisiana & Arkansas Ry. Co., 77 Ark. 412, 95 S.W. 776 (1906), and specifically stated that it was not overruling the following statement: "There is no doubt but that where a party, who has not been served with summons, answers, consents to a continuance, goes to trial, takes an appeal, or does any other substantial act in a cause, such party by such act will be deemed to have entered his appearance. But this rule of practice does not apply in cases where the party on the threshold objects to the jurisdiction of his person, and maintains his objection in every pleading he may thereafter file in the case. Where he thus preserves his protest, he cannot be said to have waived his objection to the jurisdiction of his person." (Robinson v. Bossinger, 195 Ark. at 451, 112 S.W.2d at 640.)
