Keith Kreinik was injured in a motorcycle accident. The statute of limitations for his injuries would have run two years from the date of his accident, Sept. 2, 2007 to Sept. 2, 2009. In the meantime, on Aug. 29, 2009, Karen Kreinik was allowed guardianship of Keith and filed a lawsuit against Ali Hosseini and Magnum Motors, the company that Keith was working for at the time of his motorcycle accident.
It took more than 15 months for Karen to secure service on Hosseini, during which time Keith died. Kreinik finally obtained service on Nov. 22, 2010. Exactly a year later, the trial court granted Hosseini’s motion to quash service, stating that it was improper because the process server appointed by the court was not the one who actually served Hosseini.
On Dec. 1, 2011, Kreinik served Hosseini. On Jan. 3, 2012, Hosseini moved to dismiss the complaint with prejudice since Kreinik “failed to exercise reasonable diligence.”
