PSACO Supports the PAAPRS Campaign

The National Association of Professional Process Servers supports the ServeNow campaign “Promoting Assault Awareness and Protective Regulation for Servers (PAAPRS)“.  As the Member of the NAPPS Board of Directors, President of PSACO, owner of a process serving company and a process server, safety for the individuals who choose to serve papers is very important to me and my fellow Board Members. Without private process servers the court system would become backlogged. Effecting service of process is an important step in protecting one’s right to “Due Process”, the defendant’s right to fundamental fairness and justice in the judicial system.

Some defendants would prefer service never be effected, hoping the case will just go away. Once served, they take their frustration out on the server, most times it is just angry words. More frequently those words are being replaced with verbal threats and more often than in the past process servers are being assaulted or menaced.  Taking your frustrations out on the messenger, is not nor will it ever be a viable solution for being served.

The PAAPRS campaign is designed to track menacing and assault of process servers and calls for those who menace or assault process servers, be charge with a felony, as a consequence of their actions, in all 50 states.

Felony as a consequence, will not stop assaults or menacing against those who serve papers. Passage of laws protecting process servers along with media coverage of the law could save someone’s life or prevent serious injury.

 

If you are the victim of menacing or assault as a process server, you need to file a police report, contact your local process server’s association and then enter your assault or menace in the PAAPRS database. This database will be used by Process Server Associations across the United States to address their legislature, requesting they protect process servers as the protect police officers and emergency medical technicians for assault or menacing.

 

Online petition, help make assault or menace of a process server a felony in all 50 states.

The difference between 69 and 369 Interrogatories, and serving someone in court

At the PACES conference I discussed the difference between 69 and 369 Interrogatories. I state there are two differences, the differences are as follows:

· Rule 69 is District Court Interrogatories and must be served personally to the named person.

· Rule 369 is County and Small Claims Court Interrogatories and can be sub-served to any family member over the age of 18 at the usual place of abode or at the workplace.

There was a discussion and I promised to do the research and provide the documentation to clarify my statement. Attached are copies of Rule 69 and 369. I highlight the part stating how the papers need to be served. Rule 69 Interrogatories must be handed to the person named, while Rule 369 Interrogatories can be sub-served

I have also been informed that service at the court house is okay. There is a Rule which permits service to and from court where the people have been subpoenaed to appear.
