The New York State Professional Process Servers Association (NYSPPSA) has sent out an update in reference to Senate Bill S2599/Assembly Bill A3091-13.
The New York legislative website lists the bill as passing the Senate on June 11th and then being delivered the Assembly and referred to codes.
According to NYSPPSA, the bill was not placed on the Assembly’s agenda for yesterday’s session, presumably due to the volume of other bills. . As the vote was unanimous in the Senate and the bills are still active, NYSPPSA is hopeful of the possibility of a vote in the fall session.
If New York does pass this bill they will be the fourth state to make assault against a process server a felony, joining California, Florida and Illinois.
