Service of Process in the News

Service of Process in the News

Last year the Colorado Attorney’s Office attempted to serve Douglas Bruce, political activist and former legislator, more than 23 times in relation to a series of campaign finance complaints.

That process server made 23 different attempts, but failed to effectively serve Mr. Bruce. After a three day trial, Mr. Bruce was found not guilty of contempt of court, but the issue committee he was to answer questions about was fined $11,300.00.

This goes to show that service of process is not something to be taken lightly. Make sure you get people, corporations, and public entities served correctly. Anything less can be a whole lot of headache in the end.
