Sam Has NOT Been Served

2/7/2008 3:37 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Sam LutfiTMZ has confirmed that Sam Lutfi has not been served with the restraining order sought by Brit's parents-- yet.

If he comes in contact with Britney, it technically wouldn't violate the restraining order issued against him -- since he hasn't officially been given notice.

It's a technicality, yes, but Sam could argue he doesn't know about the TRO since he hasn't even seen it.

Of course, he'd also have to prove he doesn't use the Internet ... or read the newspapers ... or watch TV or ...

Another stupid story by TMZ's uneducated chimpanzees    

Domestic terrorist Osama lufti is a wussy. Imagine, this controlling psycho stalker is now hiding in his home, afraid to come out due to knowing that he's going to get served the second he steps outside. What a total & complete wimp...

Harvey is an attorney correct? He should know a RO is not binding until it is served, regardless of internet access to TMZ. What a frickin ego.

Dang. Ok, I got this off of the City of Monteray Park, CA's website:

Serving a Restraining Order

If the restraining order was not served to the restrained person in court, it may be served by anyone other than yourself who is 18 years old and older. If the restrained person has not been served the restraining order and he/she attempts contact with you in person, immediately contact the law enforcement agency of jurisdiction to have them respond to handle the issue at hand and to serve the restraining order on the individual.

After the restrained person is served with a copy of the restraining order, a copy of the PROOF OF SERVICE form will then need to be filed with the Monterey Park Police Department along with a certified copy of the original restraining order.

This really is sad. I can't believe the hospital didn't keep her in longer. At least then they could have kept Osama and the other paps away from her long enough to get her stabilized.

Max is a HOTTIE!!!    

He is such a loser, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that he will contact Brit Brit. I think the order should stand seeing as everyone in the free world knows he has a restraining order against him, served or not this guy is a jackass. I wish someone would sprinkle "vitamins" on his food and then take his life away. Karma is a BITCH, I hope he gets what he deserves!!!!!!!!

LUFTI is an ASS CLOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! xoxo

This creep even looks dangerous. He must to be really bad to have three earlier restraining orders on him.

A predator will do anything to get to their next victim & he definitely sees Britney as one worth the fight however it may be.
