I discovered (through a local records search) that I have an open small claims court case against me from May 2006. I have since gotten married, changed my last name, and moved to a different state, so I was never served with a summons. The docket information does confirm that I have never been served. The last action listed on the docket information was in 2009, when the judge was reassigned. Is this something that I can eventually have dismissed? If not, how long can this case stay open if I am never served a summons?
