CALSPro Bill AB 2286 Is Working Its Way Through The Legislature
Posted May 3, 2018 in Legislation
By Chad Barger, Chairman, Legislative Committee
As reported in my last blog, our CALSPro bill, AB 2286, sponsored by state Assemblyman, Phillip Chen, R-55th District, which amends the service hours for a CCP1011(b) is working its way through the legislature. The proposed amendment is to expand the hours for service on a pro se party by leaving a copy with anyone, other than the party, at his or her residence between the hours of 7 AM to 9 PM.
The proposed amendment simply widens the window to effect serving notice to the pro se party by leaving the documents with someone else if he or she is not present. However, we have received push-back from the Assembly Judiciary on the expansion of the morning hours. We are working diligently to keep the bill alive. We will keep you updated on the bill’s progress.
In March, the committee met at CALSPro headquarters in Sacramento to discuss the topic of obstruction of justice. Several great ideas were presented, and we have begun to formulate the framework to add greater protection for California process servers, along with greater access to guarded/gated “Multiple commercial business complexes” and “Multiple residential buildings.” If you have ideas on this subject, please contact me.
Lastly, at our board of directors meeting in March, the committee was provided with the list of potential bills that could affect our profession. As we pour over the proposed legislation, we encourage you to do the same. The link to active legislation can be found here: https://www.calspro.org/members/.

Stay tuned for more legislative update in the months to come.
