    I just received a summons from LVNV Funding, LLC in the last few days. It has my court date towards the end of the month (metro east STL area). I have never received anything from this company until now.

    I have been reading some shady things about this company. What is my next step in the process or do I just show up on the date? Looks like they are filing and hoping no one shows up for a judgment.

    In a civil lawsuit, there can be lots of different "court dates." Does the summons say what the purpose of this "court date" will be? Is the case in small claims court or "regular" court?

    Depends in large part on whether the case is in small claims or "regular" court. Does the summons contain any sort of instructions -- in particular, does it say anything about needing to file a written response?

    What do the papers you received say that makes you think this is the case?

    If the defendant fails to appear the plaintiff can prevail by default.

    Which is why all defendants MUST appear in court as directed.
