Kolbas v. City of Philadelphia

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA


January 28, 2010

GEORGIA KOLBAS
v.
CITY OF PHILADELPHIA, ET AL.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Fullam, Sr. J.

MEMORANDUM

Plaintiff has filed a motion for default judgment in this case. The defendants oppose the motion, asserting that they were never served with the complaint.

The actual "return of service" filed by plaintiff's counsel does not actually state that the complaint and summons were delivered to anyone. It asserts merely that "a copy of the complaint and summons in the above-captioned civil action was made on defendants at the Law Department, 1515 Arch Street, 14th Floor, Philadelphia, PA, upon a person of suitable age and in charge." The notion that this suffices to prove valid service of process upon the City of Philadelphia and three separate individuals cannot readily be accepted. The motion for default judgment will therefore be denied.

An Order follows.

John P. Fullam, Sr. J.
