WA Legal Roundup - Washington Supreme Court
In a tribute to Mark Leemon, this opinion deserves one of these:
(The infamous "It's Friday!" guy)
"Personal service upon a corporation is accomplished . . . by serving the the company's registered agent . . . or by serving the secretary, stenographer, or office assistant of [this] person."
In this case, docs worked together and Doc 1 has an uh-oh moment. Docs split up, but still have their corporation. Doc 2 is the registered agent, but moves on with his life to start a new practice. Guy who got messed up by the uh-oh moment serves the office manager of Doc 2. This counts as the office assistant or secretary of the registered agent, even though the office manager doesn't work for the original corporation. It is only necessary that she work for the person who is the registered agent.
Oh, and this was issued per curiam.
