1. A bailiff is an officer empowered to serve written proceedings issuing out of any court, carry out judicial decisions that are executory and perform any other duty devolving upon him by law. A bailiff is also empowered to make purely material ascertainments, excluding any opinion on the factual or legal consequences that may result therefrom; such ascertainments have value merely as information.
The court officer referred to as a “huissier de justice” may also be referred to as a “huissier”.
