An Australian couple have been served with legal documents via the popular social networking site Facebook.
Mark McCormack, a lawyer in Canberra, persuaded a court to allow him to use the unusual method after other attempts to reach them failed.
The couple’s home is being repossessed after they reportedly missed payments on a loan of over A$100,000.
In granting permission to use the social networking site, the judge stipulated that the papers be sent via a private email so that other people visiting the page could not read their contents.
We’re getting to where the only place some people exist is online. Sad.
