Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
Amends the Juvenile Court Act and the Code of Civil Procedure.
In the Code of Civil Procedure, changes procedure for making a special
appearance to one for objecting to a court's jurisdiction over the
person of the objecting party. Permits the objection to be made by
filing a motion to dismiss or to quash service of process, and auth-
orizes the motion to be combined with other motions. Provides that if
the objecting party files a responsive pleading or a motion (other
than a motion for an extension of time to answer or otherwise appear)
before filing a motion objecting to the court's jurisdiction over the
party's person, the party waives all objections to that jurisdiction.
Makes other changes. Makes a conforming change in the Juvenile Court
Act of 1987 in a Section concerning summonses and appearances in a
proceeding alleging that a minor is abused, neglected, or dependent.
SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1.
Adds "either" to precede the 2 specified grounds for objecting to
a court's jurisdiction over the person.
