Notice that is a legal fiction where a reasonably diligent person is assumed to have known about something even if they did not receive actual notice. Where a party that didn’t have actual notice is treated as if they had received actual notice. For example, the court may provide that a notice nailed to a party’s door or published in a popular newspaper should be sufficient for concluding that a party will have received notice as if they had been personally served.
