If lost FED eviction the but plaintiff's process server got caught perjuring. Now this was a possession hearing an affidavit would have sufficed they brought in an orchestrated him to lie I won denied the due process because the judge didn't believe him, but co-defendant was evicted, she accepted service for me. Would this affect her case at all or the appeal or motion to reconsider? A stay?

A: Unlikely. A process server's job is simply to hand a piece of paper to a person and then confirm that it was delivered. If the process server screwed up even deliberately, it won't affect the merits of the case between the landlord and and tenant. At best, the tenant is entitled to a little extra time to respond to the FED case.
