You Can Run, But You Can’t Hide

This story is from England, but there’s no reason it couldn’t happen in the United States. A judge has authorized a plaintiff in a commercial lawsuit to serve one of the defendants via Facebook!

The lawsuit involves a dispute between investment managers and a brokerage firm accused of overcharging the investment managers. One of the defendants was proving difficult to locate. The plaintiffs weren’t certain of his last known address, and had no easy way to find him. However, the plaintiffs had been monitoring the defendant’s Facebook account, and noticed he had just added two “friends” there.

I guess the moral to the story is that if you’re trying to hide, be sure you don’t make new friends.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
