M Village in which D corporation conducted its business was partially in X County and partially in Y County. The county line bisected the village close to D's location, and in filing its articles of incorporation D had designated M Village, Y County as its residence. In fact, D's property and office were located is X County and when P began a suit against it in Y County, D moved to dismiss upon the ground that under the applicable statute D could be sued only in the county where it resided. P argued that D had at least a de jure residence at the location fixed in its articles of incorporation. Held, for P. Higgins v. Hampshire Products, Inc., (Mich. 1948) 30 N.W. (2d) 390 (1948).
