The Clerk's Office has experienced difficulty confirming service of process by the USPS starting in early February 2015 through February 27, 2015. During this time, mail receipts confirming service were not being properly forwarded electronically to the court clerk memorializing certified mail delivery. Accordingly, all counsel should take extra care to assure that proper mail service did occur this month, and is appropriately documented at the court before seeking default judgments in civil cases, or other relief that depends upon a showing of good service by certified mail. Efforts to retroactively fix this problem and confirm when good service by mail has actually occurred are underway between the Clerk, the Franklin County Data Center, and the USPS.
