Noel J. Michaud, f/k/a Noel J. Ketola v. Sarah E. Davidson
Case Number: 0:16-cv-02364-LIB
Judge: Leo I. Brisbois
Court: United States District Court for the District of Minnesota (Hennepin County)
Plaintiff's Attorney: Kyle H. Torvinen
Defendant's Attorney: Michael J. McNamara
Minneapolis, MN - Noel J. Michaud, f/k/a Noel J. Ketola sued Sarah E. Davidson on a personal injury negligence theory.
After suing Sarah Davidson for injuries arising out of a car accident, Noel
Michaud attempted to serve Davidson by having a local sheriff’s deputy leave a
copy of the summons and complaint with Davidson’s father, who then handed
them to Davidson just hours later. The magistrate judge, acting by consent of the
parties, dismissed Michaud’s lawsuit on the theory that Minnesota does not
recognize “secondhand service.”
