IN THE CIRCUIT COURT OF FLORIDA, SEVENTH JUDICIAL CIRCUIT IN AND FOR ST. JOHNS COUNTY

Re: SERVICE OF CIVIL PROCESS

Ref: CV-2009-021-SJ

WHEREAS, pursuant to § 48.021, Florida Statutes, a Sheriff may appoint “special process servers” to serve initial non-enforceable civil process in his/her county, and

WHEREAS, the Sheriff of St. Johns County, Florida has advised the Court of his intention to create a “Special Process Server” program in St. Johns County;

NOW THEREFORE, I, J. DAVID WALSH, Chief Judge of the Seventh Judicial Circuit of Florida, hereby endorse the St. Johns County Sheriff’s plan to establish a Special Process Server* program as outlined in § 48.021, Florida Statutes, and authorize the Sheriff to appoint special process servers to serve initial non-enforceable civil process in St. Johns County, Florida effective June 1, 2009.

*NOTE:  The establishment of the special process server program described above may obviate the need for motions to appoint individuals to serve process pursuant to Rule 1.070(b), Florida Rules of Civil Procedure.  As a result, judges in St. Johns County, Florida may rightfully deny such motions.

TO BE RECORDED in St. Johns County, Florida.

DONE AND ORDERED in Daytona Beach, Volusia County, Florida this 17th day of April 2009.

/s/ J. David Walsh
