Have you been served with a Plaintiff’s Claim in a Small Claims Court lawsuit with you named as the defendant? This means you are being sued.
A notice of claim may be handed to you personally by the party suing you or by another person; it can also be sent to you by registered mail in some cases.
Once you receive the notice, never throw it out. If you do not take action, the other party can get a judgment against you, just as if there had been a trial and they had won.
Legally you must reply to the claim within 30 days. You should respond by filing a Defense with the court.
