It means "Returned to clerk." That means that a process server tried to serve the complaint (lawsuit) but for some reason - a bad address, for example -- service of process could not take place so it was returned unserved. Once it is served on a party, the process server fills out an affidavit of service of process reflecting that they served the party, and the court records would read "Citation returned served."
