  •  I think they meant... (6+ / 0-)
    a service by publication-(printed up in itty bitty print-legal notice section in a newspaper),
    In the back of newspapers (which I do not receive) they list summons for people they cannot find.  I almost had to do that for someone once but they were found before the court date and signed the papers without protest.

    "Perhaps the sentiments contained in the following pages, are not YET sufficiently fashionable to procure them general favour..."

    •  They list all sorts of public notices there (4+ / 0-)

      When someone wants to divorce a person who hasn't been seen in years, for instance. I've never heard of posting a summons to appear in court for a person whose location is known. That's just plain wrong.

      •  I don't believe they're allowed to do that. (1+ / 0-)

        I think process servers must make good-faith efforts to find the people they serve before resorting to notice by publishing.  Otherwise, that's what they'd do and be done with it, because posting a public notice is a lot cheaper than hiring someone to track people down.
