A company that specializes in serving lawsuits on people in trouble over unpaid debts is facing criminal charges that it didn't bother to deliver the legal papers. New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo filed the charges Tuesday against the president of American Legal Process, a Lynbrook, Long Island firm.

Investigators say the failure to deliver the lawsuits left thousands of people in the dark about the claims.

Authorities say some people didn't find out they were being sued until their bank accounts were frozen.

A lawyer for company president William Singler acknowledged that some of his workers weren't following the law but says the violations happened without his knowledge.
