The presumption of proper service.

Practice point:  A defendant's conclusory and undocumented affidavit asserting that he had moved, when the defendant had not notified the post office of a change of address, is insufficient to rebut the presumption of proper service created by the process server's affidavit, even if that service was by nail and mail.

Case:  Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. v. Kissi, NY Slip Op 00006 (1st Dep't January 3, 2017)

Here is the decision.

Tuesday's issue:  Absolute liability under the Labor Law.
