Court Allows Attorney To Serve Documents Using FaceBook

In an interesting legal development that reflects the pervasiveness of “Web 2.0” social networking sites,  an Australian court last month approved the use of Facebook for serving a foreclosure notice to a couple defaulting on a mortgage.  Mark McCormack of Canberra law firm Meyer Vandenberg, the attorney for the lender and an avid Facebook user, told the Australian Capital Territory Supreme Court that repeated attempts to serve documents at the homeowners’ last known physical address had failed.  He used the email address given on the loan application to search Facebook and discovered a page with matching personal information.  The firm issued a press release and the story was picked up by the Wall Street Journal and the Financial Times among others.
