Thus no defendant could have “actual knowledge” that they were sued, let alone be serviced with litigation documents. For the court to then approve sanctions against innocent non-parties to the suit is a logical contradiction.

Just as was demonstrated by the lawsuit from the family of an oil change outlet’s employee against a totally innocent customer, after that employee was killed by negligence of a fellow employee and the oil change outfit’s management. The car owner had no hand in the death, and in fact wasn’t present and had no power to prevent it. Yet he is the one being sued. 

So odd to see someone on NANOG describe a video I just watched.  For the
interested here it is from Steve Lehto's channel:

Oil Change Customer Sued After Worker Kills Someone w/Car

That guy also did one on the subject of this thread:
