Ellanora Arthur Baidoo has been trying to track down her ex-hubby-to-be, Victor Sena Blood-Dzraku. She was obviously frustrated with his nonsense, so when Blood-Dzaku told her that he didn’t have an address or a job in which to send the paperwork, she got crafty.
After exhausting other ways of serving him the papers, Spinnell filed an application asking for “service by alternate means,” in this case, via social media.
In his decision, Justice Matthew Cooper said the “advent and ascendency of social media,” means sites like Facebook and Twitter are the “next frontier” as “forums through which a summons can be delivered.”
Before Cooper agreed to her using Facebook, Baidoo had to prove the Facebook account belongs to her husband, and that he consistently logs on to the account and would therefore see the summons.
Spinnell said Baidoo’s marriage to Blood-Dzraku began to unravel shortly after they married in 2009 because her husband refused to participate in a Ghanian wedding ceremony that would include both their families
The couple never lived together, according to court documents.
The down part of this story is Baidoo still can’t reach this guy. If she doesn’t respond to the papers soon she’ll be grants a “divorce by default.”
Social media is really taking over.
