In re Heckman Corporation Securities Litigation, C.A. No. 10-378-LPS-MPT  (D.Del. Nov. 22, 2011), read opinion here. This decision of the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware dealt with the issue of whether former counsel for a former corporate officer could be forced to assist in serving process on their former client. The Court in this opinion said the answer was no–but the court did require former counsel to provide a current email address so the former CEO could be served by email.
