I’m so sorry to hear about your situation!
It's hard to know exactly what's going on. It's entirely possible it was just a mistake by the court.
Sometimes, a person needs to quash or modify a subpoena. A subpoena is a demand that a person participate in some court proceedings, such as producing a document or testifying under oath. Generally, to do this, a person can submit a motion to quash on the grounds that the subpoena
(i) fails to allow a reasonable time to comply;
(ii) requires a person to comply beyond the geographical limits;
(iii) requires disclosure of privileged or other protected matter, if no exception or waiver applies; or
(iv) subjects a person to undue burden.
In this case, you would need to say to the court that you are not involved in this case in any way so you should be dismissed.
Once the motion is served on the opposing party, they will have a chance to oppose the motion if they wish. They must file and serve their opposition. Regardless, the magistrate will review the documents and either a) call a hearing to have you make oral arguments or b) make a decision without a hearing. Also, you’ll be notified of the magistrate’s decision in writing.
Because I value your input, did you have any other questions about this that I can help out with:-)?
