W. William Graham, Inc. v. City of Cave City
In W. William Graham, Inc. v. City of Cave City, 289 Ark. 105, 709 S.W.2d 94 (1986), the court confronted an appellee's argument that the appellant had waived any right to a review of the sufficiency of the evidence on appeal because the appellant had failed "to have the trial court rule on its motion for a directed verdict at the conclusion of all the evidence."
Noting that the issue had been raised "by a motion for summary judgment, was ruled upon again by entry of an order in response to a motion in limine, and was raised again at the end of all the proof," the court held that the appellant had not waived its right to appellate review on that issue. . 289 Ark. at 107, 709 S.W.2d at 95.
