In Tennessee, professional process servers have been working diligently towards providing a professional, more time efficient option for clients  when seeking service of process in Tennessee.  This recent event in Sumner County, Tennessee has the potential of setting our profession back years.  Tennessee Codes Annotated states that “it’s illegal “for a person to intentionally prevent or obstruct an officer of the state or any other person known to be a civil process server in serving, or attempting to serve or execute, any legal writ or process.” which one would believe would include those with the responsibility of upholding the LAW.  The Tennessee Association of Professional Process Servers cannot stand on the sidelines and watch as a government employee blatantly disregards the law, but also does so to benefit his own interest at the expense of a professional simply doing his job.  Please read the story by the “Tennessean” here:
