In a decision dated March 27, 2015, a Manhattan Supreme Court Judge allowed the plaintiff permission to serve the defendant with a divorce summons through Facebook. The extraordinary remedy was fashioned when the plaintiff represented to the Court the failure of private detectives and various other efforts to find the defendant so as to effectuate personal service. The couple were married in a civil ceremony in 2009 but apparently never lived together, going on to separate lives. Sometimes unique circumstances call for unique remedies.
