Court Papers Served By Facebook

On the Legal Blog Watch, an interesting post titled Court Papers Served by Facebook by Carolyn Elefan about serving court papers via one of the biggest social networks Facebook.

Imagine opening your inbox on a social networking site and finding an invitation — not to connect to an acquaintance — but to show up in court. That may be the direction that social networking is headed, at least in the aftermath of a case out of Australia, where a judge granted lawyers permission to serve defendants with a default judgment via Facebook.

Do social networks take on yet another role? What are your thoughts on it?
