Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am researching your issue and will respond shortly.
No. That is, if there was a judgment given, it would not hold up.
This sent to a wrong address would not satisfy "legal notice" sufficient to give the sued party notice of the suit.
would a judge hear the case without proof of service?
No. But it's possible that the plaintiff could file a document saying that service was completed.
But if service was never completed, then the judge shouldn't hear the case.
and that document would show up in the court case file?
I suppose it would be possible, but that's a prerequisite to having a valid judgment.
ok thank you!
