Service of Lawsuit and Summons
I received a visit from the sheriff (or received paperwork in the mail) asking me to accept service of a complaint in connection with a lawsuit. What should I do?
If you are named individually in a lawsuit that is related to your position at the University, you may accept service or you may make arrangements for OLA to accept service on your behalf. If you are not individually named, you should not accept service of the complaint for either the University or any other individual named as a defendant. If you are served or otherwise receive a copy of a summons and complaint relating to your position at the University, keep all the original documents and contact OLA immediately.
