“Service of process on Defendants’ attorneys was improper, and to the extent that Plaintiffs’ brief asks the court to authorize service on Defendants’ attorneys under Rule 4.1, that request is unsupported by case law authority and is denied.2 In order to proceed, Plaintiffs must effect proper service on the Farmers and GC. The court recognizes Plaintiffs’ frustration with being forced to serve parties it believes have acted in concert with parties to the original case, but allowing circumvention of proper service here would necessitate assuming the correctness of the facts alleged in Plaintiffs’ motion for contempt. The court cannot do so. The motion to quash service is GRANTED.”
