Court Documents Now Served Through Facebook

The Age Technology section today reports on an Australian, and possibly world first. A default judgement in a case where the defendant did not turn up to court was allowed to be communicated via facebook.

Master Harper [of the ACT Supreme Court] ordered that the defendants in the case could be validly served by the plaintiff sending a message by computer to the Facebook pages of both defendants informing them of the entry of and the terms of the judgement.

Australian courts are regarded as being amongst the most technologically advanced in the world, and this innovation goes to further that claim.
