The case of the day is Shull v. University of Queensland (D. Nev. 2018). Frederick H. Shull Jr. sued the University of Queensland School of Medicine. He sought leave to serve process by mail. The United States and Australia are both parties to the Hague Service Convention. Australia does not object to service by postal channels, though it does require such service to be sent by registered mail. So the answer to the motion should have been to deny it on the grounds that no leave is required: Shull was free to serve process by mail as long as he followed the formalities required by FRCP 4(f)(2)(C)(ii).
