I filed for bankruptcy and obtained my discharge in 1999. I was served a motion to be in court today 3/21/09 to answer 3 water bills on the bankrupt property totaling over $3000 for the year 2003. Although i showed the bankruptcy discharge and the listed property, the city court says I am still liable because for some reason my name was still on the bill after the surrender of property. Am I still liable?

did you list the bills on your bankruptcy?
If the bills are from 2003 and you were no longer there, it would follow that you shouldn't be liable, but don't rely on my answer because I do not have all the facts. I'd highly recommend having a local consumer law/bankruptcy attorney help you out with this, someone that has all the facts.
