When considering alternative forms of service of process after other forms of traditional service have been exhausted,  SOP via Facebook probably makes more sense than service via publication in a newspaper. What do you think?

Civil process server Stephen Hartman is seeking a total of $25 million from about a dozen defendants, including judges, lawyers, and law enforcement officers.

The suit stems from charges filed against Hartman after he attempted to serve former District Judge Layne Walker with a lawsuit in May 2013.

Is Physical Service of Process Archaic?

According to lawyer Michael Stutman, head of family law at Mishcon de Reya in Manhattan:

    "The idea that physically handing someone a piece of paper is the only way to serve notice is archaic."

International Service of Process Story - Importance of Following the Rules!

(CN) - A group accusing OPEC of fixing the price of gasoline deserves another chance at effecting service on the intergovernmental organization, the D.C. Circuit ruled.
     Conservative activist group Freedom Watch sued the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) in 2012, alleging that the group violates U.S. antitrust law by fixing the price of gasoline.
     It attempted to effectuate service by hand-delivering a copy of the summons and complaint to OPEC headquarters in Vienna, Austria, but OPEC asserted that this means of service was invalid without the express consent of OPEC's secretary general.
     A federal judge agreed with OPEC, dismissing the suit, and a three-judge panel with the D.C. Circuit affirmed Friday that Freedom Watch's efforts did not count as service under Austrian law and were thus invalid.

The New York state court system announced new rules Tuesday to stop debt collection agencies from using underhanded tactics to win judgments against poor or elderly credit card ​holders.

The collection agencies also frequently fail to tell debtors when a lawsuit was filed against them – a tactic k​​nown as “sewer service.”

And in a move aimed at addressing “sewer service,” creditors must give the court notice of any new lawsuits so the notice can be mailed to the debtor.

If the notice is returned as undeliverable, no default judgment can be awarded. http://nypost.com/2014/09/16/court-announces-new-rules-for-debt-collection-agencies/
