Obtaining proper service of process on an out-of-state insurance company is one of the more technical issues involving lawsuits against insurance companies.

The statute also requires the Plaintiff to send a copy of the service letter (or process) upon the Minnesota Commissioner of Commerce, also by certified mail.
