I
GROUNDS
1. 1. THIS HONORABLE COURT HAS NO JURISDICTION
OVER THE PERSONS OF THE DEFENDANTS.
1.2.

by handing a copy thereof to the defendant in person or that, at least, efforts
were made to personally serve the summons upon said defendant.

nor justifiable causes for substituted service in accordance with the

acquired jurisdiction over said defendants person.

250,000.00 on December 1, 2014 and Php 250,000.00 on January 31, 2015.

ordered dismissed on the ground of lack of jurisdiction over the persons of
