Zing! Kris Humphries’ lawyer served Kanye West a subpoena via a Nordstrom box

(the estranged couple, in happier times…or were they? And do we really care?)

According to a report from TMZ, as a ploy in the divorce proceedings through which Kris Humphries seeks to prove that his short-lived marriage to Kim Kardashian was nothing but a fraud deserving of an annulment, Marshall Waller, Humphries attorney, engineered a clever ruse to accomplish service of subpoena on Kanye West.

West, a potentially key figure who could help establish that the marriage was nothing more than a sham, was served the subpoena by way of a Nordstrom box delivered to Kardashian’s home. Genius!

The brilliant executed service of process came to light during a hearing Wednesday, during which Kardashian’s attorney Laura Wasser complained that the reality star has already incurred approximately $250,000 in attorney’s fees.

Among the other nuggets gleaned from the hearing:

Kris Humphries’ lawyer, Marshall Waller told the court he wants to prove the marriage was a fraud, which Kim wanted solely to benefit her reality show.  He says he wants to be armed with information about the show before taking Kim’s deposition.

Kim’s lawyer, Laura Wasser followed up by asking why it’s so important for Kris to get an annulment.  Waller did not answer.  Wasser then said she intends to get Kris to pay every penny of Kim’s attorney’s fees.

What tangled webs we weave. Okay, maybe not regular folks like us, but instead the outcome of pissing matches conducted by self-absorbed, obnoxious and far-too-wealthy individuals undeserving of so much attention. But here we are, paying attention to them. It’s a disease, really.

Still, Waller deserves all the credit in the world for his ploy that resulted in West being served. I can only imagine the look on West’s face when he realized he’d been had by one wily attorney. Not that he wouldn’t have been served another way at another point in time. I simply appreciate the style in which it was accomplished. Kudos, counselor.
