Report Improperly served? in Is There a Lawyer in the House Posted May 22, 2016 first, I want to thank everyone for their input and well thought out answers. It seems from the above statements, I should let it go, but as RyanEX stated above, maybe I'll bring in up in a trial brief. The reason I wanted to know if it was legal or not, is because, if I definitely was not served properly, I could then bring that up to the judge along with my other defenses, and if the judge is teetering on a ruling, maybe it's one more thing to rule in my favor. In other words, if the judge is somewhat on my side, but can't really rule in my favor, because there is nothing he or she can hang their on, except for something that actually went against California law , then maybe this would help me in the end. I would think if the plaintiff did NOT follow the law, then whether or not I brought it up early enough, should not matter, because it is still is a part of this case as a whole.... and against the law, is against the law... isn't it? or am I wrong?
