Dianardo v. Community Loan Servicing

Fourth DCA

Dianardo v. Community Loan Servicing
4th DCA 3/x/23, Per Curiam (Warner, Gross, and Ciklin)
Topics: Service of Process

The DCA affirmed a trial court’s order finding personal jurisdiction over appellants where their lawyer agreed to accept service by mail. Florida Rule of Civil Procedure 1.070(i) does not apply where a defendant’s attorney agrees to accept service. Rather, the rule applies where a party defendant is served by mail, without any participation by an attorney.
