Submission + - Australian Court Order Served Via Facebook

gizmod writes: Victoria police got court approval to use the site after attempts to serve the order in person, over the telephone or via the post failed.
The "prolific" Facebook user was accused of, among other things, using the site to harrass, bully and threaten another person, and police said they transcribed all the court documents and sent them to his Facebook inbox.
A video was also made of the order being read "as if the Respondent was being directly spoken to" and sent electronically to him.

In practice, failures in system development, like unemployment in Russia, happens a lot despite official propaganda to the contrary. -- Paul Licker
