This post is only of practical value for those of us who file complaints in Chancery Court and need to have them served. The current practice is for the Court to grant a Motion to Appoint a Special Process Server, which often is one of the local messenger companies, which allows for quicker timing for the formal process of hand delivering a complaint to someone who has not agreed to accept "service of the complaint" without the formal procedure.

Now, in a move towards greater efficiency, the court has issued an Order, available here, and effective as of May 1,  that dispenses with the process of filing a Motion for Special Process Servers in place of a system that allows for Special Process Servers to be registered with the court on an annual basis. (Perhaps this is akin to having a stable of pre-approved horses in one’s stable, although I know the messengers to be much more valuable and much smarter than any horse could ever be.)
