Process servers: Wealthy homeowners able to skirt the law

You’d like to think everyone plays by the same rules when it comes to enforcing the law.

But that might not be the case, according to Mark Shaw, a Valley process server who often goes to great lengths to deliver court papers.

“Sometimes it’s a cat and mouse game,” said Shaw. “You need to be there when someone is leaving for work, or when they’re coming home from work.”

A number of high-end gated communities in Scottsdale and Paradise Valley are doing all they can to keep process servers from coming in and delivering orders of protection, restraining orders, even eviction notices.

“I’ll tell them I’ve got a foreclosure notice here, and they say ‘sorry, still can’t let you in,'” said Shaw. “If you have enough money to shield yourself from service of process, you can avoid going to court for everything from photo radar all the way up to divorce.”

Face the Music – Process Servers & Local Band

There is no good time to be served a lawsuit, but some moments are better than others.  You do not want to be out on a date, listening to a local band and receive service of process.  The best time to face the music starts when the process server first appears.

Service of Process is personal delivery of notice that a lawsuit is filed against you, and an invitation for you to respond.  It is the court’s way of gaining jurisdiction over a matter and making sure that everyone involved is informed.

While it may not be good news for you, it is better than no news.  Nobody wants a surprise lawsuit with no chance at defense.  Furthermore, the faster you address the issue, the sooner it can start to be resolved.

Court documents not properly served – Process server claims intimidation by DA’s office

The Fourth District Court of Appeal is tired of repeatedly addressing the same issues from homeowners looking to prove they weren’t properly served court documents in foreclosure cases.

A Fourth DCA panel Wednesday upheld Palm Beach Circuit Senior Judge Eli Breger’s finding that certified process server Timothy Toomey followed state law when he served a foreclosure lawsuit on homeowners Irma and David Davidian.

But the court took an extra step in its critique.

Bridgette Mentz came to the St. Tammany Parish Justice Center on Dec. 3, her 8-month-old baby in tow, to record a mortgage document and serve a summons and complaint on an assistant district attorney — tasks she had undertaken for Legal Wings Inc., a legal process/filing service co-owned by her father.

But Mentz found herself detained by a deputy as she tried to leave the courthouse, an experience that intimidated her and made her frightened for herself and her infant son, she said in a pleading filed in federal court earlier this month.

The assistant district attorney she was trying to serve, Julie Knight, had been named as a defendant in a federal civil rights lawsuit that, ironically, is being pursued by another process server…
