A litigant can serve a defendant in Turkey with a lawsuit via Facebook, Linkedin, and e-mail, according to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia. It is often very hard to serve parties with lawsuits — especially if they live out of the country, their real identity is unknown, or they are ducking service. Since a lawsuit cannot start until service, this is a huge issue.
The case is Whoiswhere, Inc. v. Gokhan v. Uron, 1:13-cv-00526-AJT-TRJ (February 20, 2014).
