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.
