Abstract

Analyzes a Texas case, which held that defective jurisdictional allegations in a petition, defective service of process, and defects in the citation must be challenged by a motion to quash and not by a special appearance. The article discusses the prior interpretation of the Texas Rule of Civil Procedure 120a through prior court decisions and analyzes the current law as it stands after the case.
