Another Uninsured Motorist Case

Here is another uninsured motorist case that discusses service of process under Tennessee Code Annotated section 56-7-1206. The case is Kirby v. Wooley, No. E2008-00916-COA-R3-CV (Feb. 27, 2009).

The case discusses how service of process is governed by section 56-7-1206 and not Rule 3 of the Tennessee Rules of Civil Procedure in uninsured motorist cases.

Here's the link to the opinion:

This case should be read with my post of June 8, 2007, which also discusses service of process in a uninsured motorist context in Buck v. Scalf.

I hope this helps.
