I’m putting together a Hague Service Convention application for Bermuda today for a pending case in the D. Mass. And it was 5F / -15C while I waited for my train in Boston this morning. Which leads to my modest proposal for a new requirement under the Convention: when the temperature in the sending state is at least 30C lower than in the destination state, the plaintiff’s lawyer should be required to deliver the application to the central authority in person. Eminently reasonable, right?
