Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question and respond.

Expert:  rayanswers replied 2 months ago.

They are stating in re latine for regarding so In re A means the hearing was regarding maybe a minor "A".Ex parte means that an order was issued a=on an emergency basis without notice.Ex parte--latin for one party.These are emergency custody cases where there is immediate danger and no time for notice.There would be service then and a hearing within a short time say 10 days or less here.

This is what there are referencing here.

I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.Thanks again.

if a plaintiff is appealing an order or a judgement and summons were never served, would the case name be "exparte" plaintiff name only, in an appellant court?
Expert:  rayanswers replied 2 months ago.

Yes if they are now appealing the ex parte orders it would be styled that way.
