Chris Brown’s Legal Woes Continue, but he Can’t Avoid Process Servers Forever
Chris Brown just can’t seem to keep his name out of the news. Brown transformed from idolized pop star to infamous celebrity after he brutally assaulted his then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009. Now, 8 years later, Brown is facing more legal trouble regarding his behavior in his relationships. Karrueche Tran, Brown’s girlfriend of four years, filed court documents in February 2017 accusing Brown of abusing her and threatening to kill her after the two broke up.
Since Tran is seeking legal protection from Brown, a process server must legally serve Brown with a summons and other court documents to inform him of the court proceedings. However, it seems that Brown is doing his best to avoid and evade the process server that has been assigned to his case. Tan’s original restraining order hearing was scheduled for March 29, 2017 and then rescheduled since Brown had yet to take receipt of the official court documents. The new court date, April 19, 2017, was just recently postponed for the same reason.
It has been reported that Brown instructed his attorney, Mark Geragos, and all of his colleagues not to accept any papers on his behalf. As a result, Tran’s legal team has created a private process serving team to track Brown down and personally hand him the documents without warning. Meanwhile, Geragos has accused Tran of creating false domestic violence claims to “enhance” her own celebrity status. In Geragos’ words, he will not accept Brown’s court papers because, “I’m not here to help anybody increase their profile for self-promotion.”
It is not uncommon for people, celebrities or not, to be tempted to evade process servers in an attempt to escape legal papers. However, such a stalling tactic only leads to more trouble. The best method is always to accept papers, read them thoroughly, and respond accordingly to find a resolution.
