Harris APC launched the Process Server Project for individuals affected by process servers who engage in sewer service

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. - Californer -- Harris APC, a California law firm, has launched the Process Server Project for individuals affected by process servers who engage in sewer service.

The practice is called "sewer service" because process servers dispose of court documents, i.e., by throwing them down the sewer, and then falsely allege that they served them.

Sewer service is a common practice among process servers who work for 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, allowing the debt collector to garnish his wages to pay the alleged debt.

Harris APC launched the Process Server Project after a California Court of Appeal held that sewer service is a constitutionally protected right of free speech and thus protected under California's anti-SLAPP statute. (Code Civ. Proc., § 425.16).

"Basically, the court is saying that process servers have the right, under the First Amendment of the United States Constitution, to fail to serve you with court documents and then sign a declaration under penalty of perjury saying they served the documents when they didn't," said Monique Harris, an attorney for Harris APC.
