In a single day last week, Week Ten of America’s Covid-19 quarantine, I fielded essentially the same oddly segmented inquiry from three different lawyers across the country. A rather disconcerting inquiry, to say the least.
“Hey, Aaron. I’ve got an overseas defendant to serve. I’ve talked to some process servers who tell me that you can’t personally serve anybody overseas right now, so I should just serve by mail.”
When I interject to tell them that, no, that’s a bad idea…
“But they say the Water Splash decision makes it okay. That’s right, isn’t it?”
