"It is recognized that there is an implied
invitation for business licensees and
others to enter upon that portion of the
premises approaching and adjacent to
the entrance of a residence, and that
under ordinary circumstances one
using that portion of the premises to
approach and serve legal process
could in no sense be deemed a
trespasser. It is questionable, however,
whether the license so implied should
extend to one bent on vexing, harassing
and irritating the occupants and
creating a disturbance of the peace so
as to inflict mental duress and suffering
upon them. By the same token, it may
be contended that any privilege
conferred by the process, with which
the actor was armed, would be forfeited
because of the motivation and intent of
the actor."
