Its easy if you know how.
All you have to be is a prominent senior counsel of the ACT Supreme Court and a past President of the ACT Bar Association.
Then when the process server appears, stay (hide?) in your chambers and get the receptionist to tell the process server that you are refusing to accept service of the claim.
Whilst there are obviously ways around this, the following suggests itself as the best solution:
Get someone in a clown or gorilla costume, liberally dosed with “eau de skunk” or “eau de Mully turd”, and set up camp in the foyer of the said barristers chambers, complete with esky, maybe a small stove, sleeping bag, drum kit etc. Perhaps a pet rottweiler along as the support act for intelligent company. Alternately set up camp in the ACT Supreme Court until said senior counsel makes an appearance and serve him in open Court.
Then alert all the media to come along with cameras & mikes to wait it out until said senior counsel ventures forth to accept service.
What do you think? Any better suggestions for the recalitrant senior counsel. He was aware that the claim was coming.
A junior barrister also included in the claim accepted service withour demur or histrionics. Onya.
Ah lawyers. Same species, different planet.
