A judge ordered the lawyers of Sydney's colorful identity, Tom Domican, to link the court documents with the entrance doors of John Ibrahim's mansion.
Mr. Domican is suing Mr. Ibrahim and his editor, Pan Macmillan Australia, for defamation of the best-selling memoir of the nightclub boss, the Last King of the Cross.
The 75-year-old man says the book described him as a hit man, a drug dealer and a violent criminal who participated in gang wars in the 1980s.

Mr. Domican's lawyer, Sue Chrysanthou, said on Thursday that the Federal Court's attempts to serve Mr. Ibrahim with legal documents have not been successful.
Mr. Ibrahim's lawyers said they do not accept the submission of documents in civil cases, and the efforts to deliver the claim statement to the Ibrahim house failed, Ms. Chrysanthou told the court, The Daily Telegraph reported.
Judge Michael Wigney responded by ordering the documents to be placed in a waterproof envelope and "glued to the door" of Mr. Ibrahim's house in Dover Heights.
He said the case would be delayed until Mr. Ibrahim received the legal documents, adding that the night club baron Kings Cross was probably aware of the court case.

As revealed exclusively by Daily Mail Australia, Mr. Domican filed a statement of claim with the Federal Court in July, days before the first anniversary of the publication of Ibrahim's book, just before the 12-month period for defamation action.
He is looking for aggravated damages and wants the book to be removed, copied and republished without any reference to him.
Mr. Domican claims that a passage in the book slanders him by bearing the allegations that "he was willing to be hired to kill people other than the lbrahims."
PASSAGE OF THE LAST KING OF THE CROSS ABOUT TOM DOMICAN
John Ibrahim wrote in his book that former detective Roger Rogerson, who has since been imprisoned for murder, approached him while the young businessman took over the protection of Kings Cross strip clubs in the late 1990s.
He and Rogerson were "used to talking directly to each other."
"So he went straight out and told me that some people were not happy that I took them off the Cross … and that there are people looking around to get rid of me," Ibrahim wrote.
"Tom Domican was approached but he laughed.
"Tom had been involved in the first gang wars in Sydney twenty years earlier when he, Neddy Smith, Chris Flannery (the same Mr. Rent-A-Kill) fought for the territory of Sydney for the lucrative illegal betting machines and the heroin market.
& # 39; He knows [Ibrahim’s brother] Sam and I, and we did not want to get involved. "
He also states that he implies that he is "a violent criminal who participated in gang wars" and that he is a criminal who conducted or sought to carry out illegal gambling activities and became involved or sought to become involved in the supply of heroin.
Mr. Domican affirms that he has been "very wounded in his credit and reputation, and has been led to public scandal, hatred and contempt".
Domican, born in Dublin, is a former garbage collector and was once a member of the Labor Party inside the city, which has been heavily involved in the construction industry.
Tony Abbott once described Mr. Domican as a passing man while he was federal minister of labor relations; Mr. Domican challenged Abbott to a boxing match to raise money for charity, but Abbott declined.
Mr. Domican was charged with murder, attempted murder and five conspiracies for murder in the 1980s, but was acquitted of all alleged crimes.
Some of those prosecutions were based on the word of discredited and discredited prison informers.
The charge of murder against Mr. Domican was in connection with the murder of assassin Chris Flannery in 1985, an accusation that nobody believes now. Flannery's body has never been found.
The instructions of Justice Wigney arrive just one day before Last King of the Cross appears as one of the four finalists at the opening of the Sydney Writer's Crime Festival.
The memory was included in a long list for the prestigious Ned Kelly Awards of the Australian Writers Association, but did not reach the five finalists.
The book shows the rise of Ibrahim, who went from being a child fleeing Lebanon devastated by war with his family to his nights as a gorilla and his eventual mastery of the Sydney nightclub scene.
Mr. Domican affirms that a passage in the book defames him by bearing the accusations that "he was willing to be hired to kill other people besides the lbrahims."
