Could lengthy legal document be route to love?


An unnamed California lawyer has attempted to secure a date with a woman by serving her with a subpoena.

The American legal document — which usually compels someone to attend court as a witness — has been re-drafted by the loved-up-lawyer in the hope of bagging a romantic meal with an unnamed lady.

The attempt to wangle a date through a summons isn’t, however, unprecedented. Last year Legal Cheek reported that a Queen Mary University of London law student had created a ‘Writ of Summons’ to ask coursemate to a society ball.
