Harris APC Aims to Crack Down on Process Servers
Harris APC launched the Process Server Project to crack down on process servers who engage in sewer service

"Sewer service" is when a process server claims he served a person with court documents when he didn't. Instead, he threw the documents down the "sewer."
The practice is common among process servers hired by debt collectors because when the person who was allegedly served with process fails to appear in court, a default judgment can be entered against him. Once a default judgment is entered, the debt collector can garnish the person's wages.
Harris APC, a California law firm, launched the Process Server Project to crack down on process servers who engage in sewer service.
"We want the public to know they have somewhere to turn," said Monique Harris, an attorney for Harris APC. "If anyone has been affected by a bad process server, they can call us and we'll investigate."
