In this article, Jenner & Block Partner Christopher C. Chiou and Associate L. David Russell examine recent trends in serving summonses and complains electronically.  The authors observe that “e-serving” is becoming a popular and reliable method of delivery.  But federal and state rules have not expressly authorized its use, so they caution litigants to be aware of the two circumstances in which courts have tended to allow e-service. Summer Associate Stanley H. Chen assisted with the article.
