Div. of Insurance Declare Policy on Service of Process

The Colorado Division of Insurance (DOI) has published Bulletin B – 1.30. The purpose of which is to provide carriers, consumers and other interested parties (Process Servers) with the Division of Insurance’s policy concerning accepting service of process.

Simply put

  • Must provide 3 copies of each documents to be served
  • Documents must contain the exact name of the insurance company
  • Hand altered documents will not be accepted
  • Certificate of Appointment (listed Registered Agent) must be filed with the Division of Insurance, not the Colorado Secretary of State, as per C.R.S. ss 10-3-107(1). Do not rely on the Secretary of State as the authority of whom is the Registered Agent

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.

September 25th, 2012: The first “National Due Process Day”

It’s one of our most fundamental human ( individual ) rights.

How many of you realized that it’s protected by not one, but two constitutional Amendments?

Constitution of the United States
Amendment 5
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime,
unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising
in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time
of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense
to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any
criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life,
liberty, or property, without due process of law
; nor shall private property be
taken for public use, without just compensation.

Amendment 14

1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the
jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State
wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall 
abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States;
nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, 
without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its
jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

To recognize these important rights, it seems that we now have a designated 
national Day.

Our entire profession and industry is based on this right, so it's only 
right that it now has a day of it's own, where not only we who have so 
long been aware of it, can now celebrate it, but perhaps the general 
public can be encouraged to appreciate what we do, if not what we 
bring some of them when we do it.

Let freedom ring!
