Proving Service and Jurisdiction

try these out In many disputes over personal jurisdiction, the issue of proper service is raised by a defendant. Here is an excerpt from my brief dealing with such a defense: An affidavit of service is prima facie evidence that process was properly served. Reem Contracting v. Altschul & Altschul, 117 A.D.3d 583, 584 (1st Dept. 2014). Absent affidavits from a defendant that he was improperly served, personal jurisdiction will stand. EBC Amro Asset Management Ltd. v. Kaiser, 256 A.D.2d 161, 162 (1st Dept. 1998).
