New York City is Not Kind to the Process Serving Industry!

NYC Process Servers - Regulations Run-Amok?


Some have argued that this is a success story.  But for the efforts and $ of NYSPPSA and NAPPS the number of out of business process servers and process serving agencies would be a lot higher.   If this is model of a successful effort by a NAPPS and NYSPPSA I would hate to see a failure. 

All kidding aside, this is a tragedy that was addressed by some smart well-meaning folks.  Unfortunately, the combination of a few large agencies that did commit sewer service and an environment where the DCA regulates anything that moves was too much to overcome.  It is likely that no amount of money would have made a difference. 
You can find copies of charges issued to process servers in NYC and settlements here.  Scary list of charges and settlements... Name a process server in NYC or an Agency they are probably on the DCA's list.
