One more reason not to have a Facebook account
« on: September 21, 2014, 03:51:02 PM »
Time to tweak the spam filters?
In a groundbreaking court ruling, a Staten Island man got permission to use Facebook to serve his ex-wife legal notice that he doesn’t want to pay any more child support.

A Family Court official ruled that Noel Biscocho could use Facebook to serve Anna Maria Antigua because other, more traditional methods to slap her with papers have not worked.

Well, it was because other methods have failed.  Not sure HOW they fail though.  It's not like you can avoid someone forever.
If you are going to DebOOonK an expert then you have to at least provide a source with credentials of equal or greater relevance. Even then, it merely shows that some experts disagree with each other.

I thought ignoring legal notices is not a justifiable excuse in court?

Yes, but the issue in this case was apparently that they couldn't physically find her to serve her.

Which is odd.  You'd think she would at least have a job, which would require her address to be registered with the IRS.
