NY State Judge opens up the service of legal documents in the digital age.

A woman who was unable to serve her estranged husband with divorce papers because he did not maintain a fixed address was granted permission to serve the man via the only means of communication he maintained, Facebook.  The judge ruled that the woman must send the paperwork to her husband once a week via a Facebook messaging, for three consecutive weeks.

The details of the case can be found at this NY Daily News link.
