POINT PLEASANT – Attorney Troy Giatras of Charleston said he has served a suit on a defendant that at first he could not find.
In June, Giatras received a 45-day extension to serve a Mason County lawsuit on Kimberly Smith, one of three defendants that Jeffrey Martin of Eskdale blamed for an auto accident that allegedly injured Martin.
Giatras wrote that a private investigator could not find Smith.
Giatras did not serve Smith personally before the extension ran out. After The Record reported that he did not serve her, he told The Record he served her attorney.
Martin claims that Smith, Codi Davis of Syracuse, Ohio, and an unknown John or Jane Doe caused the accident.
