Toland v. Robinson (Majority)Annotate this Case
James Toland was arrested on a felony and appeared before a judge who set a sheriff’s bond. Someone on Toland’s behalf paid the ten percent required under the bond. Thereafter, Told and First Arkansas Bail Bonds, Inc. filed suit against the county and two district judges. Appellants subsequently took a voluntary dismissal of their civil rights claims and then took a voluntary dismissal of their claims against the county. The judges filed a motion to dismiss alleging various affirmative defenses. The circuit court granted the motion to dismiss. Toland and First Arkansas Bail Bonds appealed. The Supreme Court dismissed the appeal without prejudice, holding that there was no final order, and therefore, the Court had no jurisdiction to address the merits on appeal.
