We know that the mandatory Judicial Council's Civil Case Information Statement form has a helpful section listing when special service is required (e.g., for cases involving constitutional challenges, antitrust, unfair competition, false advertising, Unruh Act claims, CEQA, etc.). But this list isn't necessarily complete. It ends with "Other (specify statute):" So how can you check to see if your case happens to fall into one of these special categories?
Well, one way is to check out the Attorney General's nifty webpage covering all sorts of useful and interesting information about when you must serve the AG: Service on the Attorney General
