LEO: Service of Process - Initiation of Civil LE Op. 722
Service of Process - Initiation of Civil Suit.
August 30, 1985
Assuming that such advice does not constitute a crime, it is not improper
for an attorney to advise a client that the client has no duty to
cooperate in the service of civil process upon him and that he may avoid
such service of process by not personally answering his door or by taking
vacation leave. The committee's function does not include rendering advice
about the possible criminal consequences of such conduct.
