Improper Service on Usher & Dupri
Highest Court M.D. Tennessee
Year Ended 2010
Plaintiffs Songwriter(s)
Defendants Dupri, Jermaine
Usher
Other No Other parties on file
Short Description This case is brief and unspectacular. Plaintiff is an unknown songwriter alleging that Usher and Jermaine Dupri infringed one of her songs. Though the court found Plaintiff's complaint stated facts sufficient to survive a motion to dismiss, she did not adequately serve either Defendant with process. She sent service to Usher's fan mail address, not any abode or business, and the service sent to Dupri was signed by someone who was not Dupri's agent. The court granted Plaintiff an additional sixty days to serve Defendants properly. - LSW
