Papers served via LinkedIn

Irish High Court Judge, Mrs Justice Bronagh O’Hanlon has, for the first time ever, approved an order to allow a liquidator to serve a person connected with a liquidated firm with papers through the social media site LinkedIn.

She permitted accountancy firm PKF O’Connor, Leddy and Holmes to serve papers on a person connected with the Irish Education and Research Institute.

The school closed suddenly in May and the accountancy firm was unable to contact the relevant person by email, fax or postal address.
