Service of Process for Actions Against a County

January 25, 2018

SB 14 (Petersen) changes the current law to require that only the county attorney or if there is no county attorney, the county clerk receive service for an action against a local official. Currently section 8.01-300 of the Code of Virginia requires in an action against a supervisor, county officer, employee or agent of the county board that each supervisor be served in addition to the county attorney or clerk if there is no attorney. The bill reported out of the Senate Courts of Justice Committee, 14-0.
