Defendant that files answer to complaint cannot argue about service of summons
Christopher Evans sued the Grosse Pointe Public School system, alleging that he was illegally fired in violation of the Persons with Disabilities Civil Rights Act.

The Court rejected Grosse Pointe's argument, noting a long historical policy of not allowing a party who recognizes the pending proceedings to quibble over the manner of notice. If a pary wishes to object to notice, he or she must respond with an pleading limited to that issue.
