A New York lawyer can use a client’s Facebook account to serve her elusive husband with a divorce summons, a judge has ruled.
“This transmittal shall be repeated by plaintiff’s attorney to defendant once a week for three consecutive weeks or until acknowledged,” wrote Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Matthew Cooper.
The target of the court paperwork, Victor Sena Blood-Dzraku, lives separately from his wife. Although he is in touch with Ellanora Baidoo by Facebook and telephone, he has refused to provide her with his home or work location or make himself available for service voluntarily, reports the New York Daily News.
“We tried everything, including hiring a private detective—and nothing,” said attorney Andrew Spinnell.
