I was just informed by an old neighbor that someone attempted to serve me papers at my old address. They did not give the person my new address. How do I find out what this is about?

Re: Summons problem
Hello. I am happy that you are willing to assume a pro-active stance
to face this possible lawsuit. I suggests that you go to the Clerk of the Circuit Court in the County where you reside and ask an assistant clerk to search their records for a listing where you are named a defendant in a case. In Cook County the Clerk's office in each division has a public access computer terminal which allows for an easy search of court records.
Those that are unfamiliar with the
computer terminal can get help from the assistant clerks in that office.
I will be happy to discuss this topic further.
