The Miami Dade County State Attorneys Office has some rules for E-Service of documents.
First (really) DO NOT send your documents to the particular assistant state attorney. That would cause confusion. YOU MUST send your documents to the designated address.
Second: All the addresses end in @MiamiSAO.com if you are sending documents during months that end in R.
Third: The subject line of the email SHOULD NOT read "choke on this and die scum". The subject line should read: SERVICE OF COURT DOCUMENTS. For emergency and immediate delivery, the subject line of the email should also include this phrase "You may have already won valuable prizes."
Fourth: Case numbers should not contain dashes and should be written in the scientifically accepted Reverse Polish Notation.
Fifth: To encourage use, every eleventh email received will be entered into a blind lottery wherein your client will become automatically eligible for PTI.
Sixth: Attached documents should be in PDF format and where applicable, contain the notation "NSFW".
Subject: Service of court documents. Open immediately. You may already have won valuable prizes.
Attached please find my motion to dismiss in 130001313
also please find pictures of you at happy hour this Friday. NSFW.
Sally Bigfees, Esq.
Note. Pursuant to the IRS code, the contents of this email do not contain any tax advice, although the time I spent preparing the email was billed to the client and is taxable unless the client paid in cash. This email is the property of the above law firm. The contents of this email are private and confidential. In the unlikely event you received this email by mistake, very bad things may happen to you. First: please retain counsel. Second: Please proceed immediately to the nearest federal express location and immediately send me the email and the hard drive from your computer. Third: Kindly act accordingly. I am so important as a lawyer that I have created a small booklet of instructions that are attached to every email. In order to properly read this email, please go to mybigegolawpractice dot com and download the free e book entitled "So a lawyer has sent you an email, What do You do next?" Remember, everything I write is not tax advice under the IRS code. I don't practice tax law but I saw some cool warnings about tax junk on an email so I decided to include them on mine so my clients and opposing counsel will think I know a lot about tax even though it was the only subject I failed in law school and the tax code has been changed like a hundred times since then.
Rumpole is offering a hundred bucks to the first lawyer who is accused of not sending an email that was sent and has to hire some nineteen year old internet guru to prove that the email was sent, the SAO received it, and then promptly lost it. A transcript of the proceedings is necessary to redeem your prize.
See you in court.
