Today, June 6, 2018, the last of the six defendants was served with my Complaint. This step is crucial because these six defendants, by law, must be put on notice that a lawsuit has been initiated against them.
As in any lawsuit, there are certain time parameters that must be followed. In my case, I had 90 days after I filed my initial Complaint (which I did on March 8, 2018) to serve all the defendants or the suit would be dismissed.
Now, all of the six defendants named in my lawsuit have received a copy of my Complaint within the statutory time limit set by the rules. This means my suit goes forward; the next move will be for each of the defendants to respond.
