Personal jurisdiction; trusts; personal service; amended pleadings
Milwaukee Safeguard Insurance Company, as subrogee of Tom and Ruby Thoma, appeals an order dismissing its claims against Diane Hanson and the Peter J. Meadows Irrevocable Trust. Milwaukee Safeguard argues the circuit court erred by: (1) dismissing its claims after striking its amended complaint as untimely filed pursuant to a scheduling order; (2) concluding it lacked jurisdiction over the Trust due to a lack of service; and (3) failing to hold an evidentiary hearing to determine whether it had personal jurisdiction over the Trust. We reject these arguments and affirm the order. This opinion will not be published.
