If you were a personal guarantor on the lease, and/or signed the lease as an additional tenant, then he can name you as a defendant.If you were not a personal guarantor on the lease, and/or not an additional tenant, then you can make a "motion to strike" the complaint (and defend the action based on the fact that you are not a named party to the contract).
