Christmas Greetings!

No. 1,596

A paralegal in another state, where civil process is served by individuals, revealed that  every year they have a request to serve domestic relations pleadings on Christmas morning for the reason, supposedly, that the other party will be sure to be at home with the children.  But, of course, the real reason is to spoil the holiday.  All the worst to such people on Christmas and to their grinch lawyers if they carry out the plot.

If I were the judge and such behavior came to my attention in a case under my supervision, I would sanction the evil-hearted client and the lawyer to spend part of Christmas Day serving dinner (not subpoenas) at a soup kitchen.
