Failure to Sign Complaint Does Not Render Service of Process Defective

The Arkansas Supreme Court has recently held that there is no signature requirement in Rule 4 of the Arkansas Rules of Civil Procedure that would require a complaint to be signed. See Jones v. Turner, 2009 Ark. 545 (Nov. 5, 2009).  As such, an unsigned complaint served with  proper summons does not render service of process defective.  For more analysis of this decision, visit the Downtown Lawyer legal blog.
