A summons is the process used in commencing a civil action in a court of record, whether it be an action at law or a suit of an equitable nature. Properly speaking, such a summons is not "process" but is rather in the nature of a mere notice informing the defendant that an action has been commenced against him, and that he is required to answer the complaint of the plaintiff therein within a specified time.
Orphans' court.
The name used in some of the States - Delaware and New Jersey, for instance, - as the title of a court having jurisdiction over the probate of wills, and the administration and settlements of decedents' estates.
From: A dictionary of American and English law : with definitions of the technical terms of the canon and civil laws : also, containing a full collection of Latin maxims, and citations of upwards of forty thousand reported cases in which words and phrases have been judicially defined or construed.by Stewart Rapalje and Robert L. Lawrence. Jersey City, N. J.; Frederick D. Linn and Co., 1883
