Assaults on process servers happen frequently and challenge a function of due process. These attacks are on messengers of the court, who properly notify parties of a court action, and on law. This petition seeks to raise awareness about process server assault and to support regulations that further protect process servers.
I believe that states should follow the lead of California and Illinois, states that have successfully made assault on a process server a felony.
Service of process is a key component of due process and every American’s right to receive proper notice of an upcoming court action. I believe that it is important to protect these rights and all that they encompass, including process servers.
