Question: Can someone be served with court paper work while in court for another issue

Answer: It really depends.  Generally, immunity from service of process is a protection afforded to foreign litigants or out of state witnesses.  For example,  an out- of-state witness who is present in the state of Arizona only for the purpose of the one lawsuit is exempt from service of civil process while attending court and for a reasonable time before and after his/her court appearance to allow the out of state witness to go from and return to his/her home.  This type of protection generally does not apply to those who are already residing in the State of Arizona.
