I’ve blogged about this before. Too many times, process servers are assaulted and the very courts they are serving summonses for do nothing about it.
The latest incident resulted in death. A female process server was attacked and killed by dogs. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2016/06/17/dogs-kill-woman-serving-court-papers-at-texas-home.html
In the 24+ years I have been serving for the courts, I’ve been physically assaulted twice. In spite of state and federal statutes that say the contrary, there ends up being no prosecution, let alone serious charges.
The courts depend upon process servers to serve summonses, subpoenas and other documents, yet we are not given the respect or protection.
I urge legislators to enact tougher legislation and, then, prosecutors and judges to do their jobs. We are literally sticking out necks out for you.
