Facebook thumb UK legal claims served via FacebookLegal authorities say a judge at England’s High Court has allowed lawyers to log on to Facebook to serve legal claims.

The Judicial Office for England and Wales said Justice Nigel Teare had agreed to the use of the popular social networking site to serve a claim in a commercial dispute.

Lawyers had been seeking a former employee embroiled in the dispute and successfully applied for permission to notify him via Facebook in a hearing last Friday.

The office had few other details of the case, but said it is thought to be the first time lawyers had sought to use Facebook in this manner.

Ordinarily British legal claims are served in hard copy, although unconventional means are occasionally employed if the people involved are hard to pin down.
