If the plaintiff has sued the wrong person and another person is involved, what should I do?
If you are simply the wrong person, with perhaps the same name as the defendant, you should write a letter to the judge who is assigned to hear your case and explain the situation. The judge will decide what should be done. You should also send a copy of the letter to the plaintiff. If you think another person is responsible for the debt, you may file a cross-claim to bring that person to Court as a third-party in the Small Claim case. The filing fee for a cross-claim is $33.00 and the third-party must be served at least 10 days before the hearing.
