I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear about your situation.

The UD-150 is required to set a case for trial after the Tenant is served and has responded. Everything that is filed with the court should also be served on you, however, they're allowed to serve the documents by mail. If it was just filed within the past couple of days, you may not have gotten it yet.

Call the courthouse to see if there is a trial on the schedule. You should actually get a separate notice from the court once the trial is set. If the trial date passed because you weren't notified, you can file a Motion to Vacate Judgment based on the lack of notice.

If the landlord hasn't filed yet the UD-150 to request a trial yet, then you get to stay until he does.
