I very recently became aware that I am being sued in Cook County in Illinois. The Plaintiff in the case is Asset Acceptance, LLC. The suit was filed 3/14/2013 and I haven't been served as far as I know. I have not avoided service and I have lived at the same address for the past 20 years with the exception of when I was away at College. I checked the local court's electronic docket after receiving solicitation in the mail from several lawyers and found the info pertaining to the case. I am really concerned bc a court date has been set for a motion to be heard on this coming Wednesday 2/19 and I am completely in the dark. What should I do?
