Borden v. Borden


63 Wis 374 (1885)


“[W}hen a party refuses to accept a copy of a summons which is offered him in a civil and proper manner, after being informed what the paper is, there is no other way to make service but deposit the process in some appropriate place, in the presence of the party if possible or where it will be most likely to come to his possession. If the party to be served does not get the copy of the summons it will be entirely his own fault. He certainly, when everything has been done to make service upon him, should not be allowed to come into court and object that because a copy of a summons was not delivered to nor left with him, therefore the service was insufficient.”
