A summons was issued
for the award-winning actor nearly 10 weeks ago.

OXFORD – How hard is it to find famed actor Morgan Freeman?
Apparently, it’s at least something of a problem.
On Feb. 25, the U.S. District Court of Northern Mississippi issued a summons for Freeman, who lives near Charleston.
The subpoena is part of a lawsuit filed against him by Demaris Meyer of Memphis, the woman who was riding with with Freeman last summer when the car somehow left the road and injured them.
Tuesday, a letter in the court documents shows Freeman’s summons appears not to have been served.
The answer is clear, however, according to Meyer’s Ridgeland attorney, Walter Morrison IV: Freeman has been in South Africa, and it’s “just a matter of not being able to serve him yet.”
As for Freeman, the court docket does not indicate he has an attorney representing him in the case.
But he should be able to get to his deposition, when it’s arranged.
According to the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, Freeman and his pilot start training soon to fly Emivest Aerospace’s SJ30 six-seater jet, which Freeman ordered for delivery by September.
With an SJ30, capable of Mach .83 (560 mph) at 49,000 feet with a range of 2,500 nautical miles, the process server may need to get cracking.
