Suspect in Jordan Davis killing to be served with civil lawsuit paperwork
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The man accused of killing Jordan Davis over loud music will be served with a civil suit while in jail.
Dunn is facing first-degree murder charges in the shooting of Davis at a Southside gas station on Black Friday last year.
The Davis family attorney tried to serve Dunn with papers about a civil suit for wrongful death, emotional distress, and defamation on behalf of Davis and one of his friends in the car at the time of the shooting.
Dunn refused to accept the documents while in solitary confinement.
The Davis family attorney says the papers will now be served by a JSO liason.
Changes have been made to how process servers can work in the jail.
Process servers now have the authority to drop-serve in jail for inmates who want to interfere with justice.
Dunn is due in court on February 19.
