Serving Lawsuit Defendants Via Digital Tech

Here is an interesting legal update I just read about: starting on December 31, 2020, under certain circumstances a defendant in a lawsuit in Texas may now be served with the lawsuit via social media and "other technology"!

The plaintiff still has to attempt service in person first but if those efforts fail then they may get permission from the court to serve a defendant by email, Facebook, Twitter, and even TikTok! It will be very interesting to see how this plays out and how it looks. 2020 keeps bringing on the strange.

While it can be scary to get served with a lawsuit it helps to have an experienced lawyer in your corner. So if you find yourself with papers in hand, or on your news feed, give us a call so we can help.
