    NYC Woman Can Serve Divorce Papers Over Facebook: Judge

    A judge has given a New York City woman permission to file for divorce from her elusive husband via a Facebook message. Gus Rosendale reports (Published Monday, April 6, 2015)

    A judge has given a New York City woman permission to file for divorce from her elusive husband via a Facebook message.

    The woman's lawyer says the ruling was made by Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Matthew Cooper.

    The Daily News says Victor Sena Blood-Dzraku will be served with the divorce summons via a private Facebook message. It will be repeated once a week for three consecutive weeks or until "acknowledged" by Ellanora Baidoo's hard-to-find husband.

    Attorney Andrew Spinnell says the couple married in 2009 in a civil ceremony. He says the relationship began to unravel when the defendant reneged on his promise to a traditional Ghanaian wedding ceremony as well.

    The ruling says Blood-Dzraku has only been in touch with his wife via phone and Facebook.
