Case Synopsis

The Court considered a petition for a writ of prohibition or mandamus challenging a district court order denying a motion to serve individual defendants by publication. The question before the court was whether a party residing outside of the United States may be served by publication pursuant to NRCP 4(e)(1)(i) and (iii), rather than under the terms of the Hague Convention on Service Abroad of Judicial and Extrajudicial Documents in Civil or Commercial Matters when the party’s address is known.
