CIVIL PRO-JURISDICTION-PERSON                                              

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.

        Adds "either" to precede the 2 specified grounds for objecting to      
   a court's jurisdiction over the person.
