Hello. I will respond to your question.
What type of papers were you served? They could be for a purely corporate liability, but must be served upon some person with authority to receive notice on behalf of the corporation.
An example would be a notice of personal property taxes that are due from the corporation. If that is the case, then do nothing.
Thank you for accepting my question
If, however, you were served with papers asserting a liability against you personally, such as for non-payment of sales taxes, you could have personal liability unless you can show that you were not a responsible officer at the time the liability arose (i.e. the date the taxes became due). In that case, you should contact the state (in the case of sales taxes, the Comptroller's office), and inform them that you resigned as an officer of the corporation as of ______ (date), and are not responsible for the taxes in question.
You may have to provide evidence of the fact that you resigned as an officer and as of what date, such as a copy of a letter of resignation.
Motion and order compelling answers to interrogatoriesin aid of execution
That would mean that a judgment has already been entered previously, and that the plaintiff is now trying to collect on the judgment. Who is the plaintiff (the state or some other private party), and who is the defendant (you personally, or the corporation)? That should be indicated at the top of the motion, on the left side.
