THIS SUMMONS IS DIRECTED TO: DEFENDANT JOHN WASHINGTON

  1. YOU ARE BEING SUED. The Plaintiff has started a lawsuit
    against you. The Plaintiff’s Complaint against you is attached to
    this Summons. Do not throw these papers away. They are official
    papers that affect your rights. You must respond to this lawsuit
    even though it may not yet be filed with the Court and there may
    be no court file number on this Summons.
  2. YOU MUST REPLY WITHIN 20 DAYS TO PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS. You
    must give or mail to the person who signed this summons a written
    response called an Answer within 20 days of the date on which you
    received this Summons. You must send a copy of your Answer to the
    person who signed this summons located at:

Swor & Gatto, P.A.

  1. YOU MUST RESPOND TO EACH CLAIM. The Answer is your written
    response to the Plaintiff’s Complaint. In your Answer you must
    state whether you agree or disagree with each paragraph of the
    Complaint. If you believe the Plaintiff should not be given
    everything asked for in the Complaint, you must say so in your
    Answer.
  2. YOU WILL LOSE YOUR CASE IF YOU DO NOT SEND A WRITTEN
    RESPONSE TO THE COMPLAINT TO THE PERSON WHO SIGNED THIS SUMMONS. If
    you do not Answer within 20 days, you will lose this case. You will

    against you and award the Plaintiff everything asked for in the
    Complaint. If you do not want to contest the claims stated in the
    Complaint, you do not need to respond. A default judgment can then
    be entered against you for the relief requested in the Complaint.
  3. LEGAL ASSISTANCE. You may wish to get legal help from a
    lawyer. If you do not have a lawyer, the Court Administrator may
    have information about places where you can get legal assistance.
    Even if you cannot get legal help, you must still provide a written
    Answer to protect your rights or you may lose the case.

    or be ordered to participate in an alternative dispute resolution
    process under Rule 114 of the Minnesota General Rules of Practice.

    you expect to use alternative means of resolving this dispute.

I hereby acknowledge that sanctions
may be awarded pursuant to Minn.
