Plaintiff served a Taiwanese defendant by mail with a registered mail, return receipt requested. Defendant moved to dismiss based on defective service, arguing Taiwanese law prohibits service by mailing a summons directly to the defendant.
The court rejected the argument, finding that Taiwanese law does not prohibit service of process by mail. The court also found that "mail received" stamp sufficed as a signature.
Taiwan always presents a tricky case because it is not a signatory to the Hague Convention. This decision seems a bit aggressive, but it certainly makes service of process in Taiwan easier.
