On Saturday, January 9th we had our first quarterly meeting of 2016 which was a resounding success. James Nanos from Apple Investigations gave a presentation on “Drones and Process Service” which covered many aspects of the use of drones and in particular the laws and regulations surrounding the use of drones for commercial use. We all walked away from the seminar much more knowledgeable on the topic. James was even kind enough to give us a live demonstration, which we all braved the cold to see – it was well worth it!
We also had a CALSPro member attend our meeting who filled us in on CALSPro’s recent decision to update their best practices to include electronic service of process. We had a group discussion regarding electronic service of process, the OASIS proposal and the future of process service.
As CALSPro has accurately noted and acted on, electronic service of process is looking like an inevitability. Right now we as process servers have the opportunity to stay in front of the discussion surrounding electronic service and to become involved as bills are crafted and laws and rules are passed.
The NJPPSA board will review these best practices and will work hard to make sure NJPPSA is involved in any discussion taking place in New Jersey involving electronic service of process.
