During the show cause hearing on 5 May, Judge Hecker told the Cabin Boy™ to get access to a copy of the Maryland Rules and to obey them. Rule 1-321 deals with service of court papers other than original pleadings.
Service upon the attorney or upon a party shall be made by delivery of a copy or by mailing it to the address most recently stated in a pleading or paper filed by the attorney or party, or if not stated, to the last known address.
Rule 1-321(a). In the past I have waived physical service in some cases and accepted service via email. However, I am no longer waiving physical service, so the Cabin Boy™ is required to deliver physical copies of all of his filing to me. Day before yesterday, I received an email from the Cabin Boy™ with an incomplete version of what appeared to be a motion attached. The text of his email read
I am not killing any more trees for you.
Here. It’s in the mail today.
If that filing appears on the court docket and I have not received a complete physical copy of what has been filed, I suppose I will have to go to the Clerk’s Office and buy a copy. If that happens, I’m sure the Cabin Boy™ will be given an opportunity to speak with the judge about it.
T-minus 33 days and counting.
