Yarbrough v. Prentice Lee Tractor Co
In Yarbrough v. Prentice Lee Tractor Co., 252 Ark. 349, 479 S.W.2d 549 (1972), the court found the appellee had given proper notice of intent to rely on foreign law where the complaint had set out portions of a mortgage which indicated Louisiana law would control.
"Even in cases where the Arkansas law requires a party to give notice in his pleading if he intends to rely on another state's law, our courts have held that no such specific notice is required if this inference can be found from the party's pleading." Blosser v. Blosser, 2 Ark. App. 37, 44, 616 S.W.2d 29, 32 (1981) (citing Yarbrough v. Prentice Lee Tractor Co., 252 Ark. 349, 479 S.W.2d 549 (1972) and Ark. R. Civ. P. 44.1).
