HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – A Connecticut marshal earned more than $1 million last year delivering court papers.

The Hartford Court reports that John Fiorillo, the top-earning marshal in the state, was paid more than $3 million by law firms in 2008, but spent about two-thirds of that on employee and office expenses. That still left him with an income of $1,119,706. The Courant says most of Fiorillo’s business came from two foreclosure firms.

Fiorillo has refused to comment on his business. Attorney General Richard Blumenthal says his office is investigating the marshal system, and why there is such a large concentration of business among just a few process-servers.
