summonsed means a formal summons was issued, to appear on pain of penalty

summoned simply means imperiously told to come, but not in any sort of legally-enforceable way.

I have often been summoned to go the the Headmaster\'s study, but luckily, I have never yet received a Court summons.

According to Robert:

to summons = citer, assigner (à comparaître)
to summon = appeler, convoquer, etc. --- though interestingly, they also offer the same suggestions as for \'to summons\' above.

As it doesn\'t say where to, I\'m inclined towards the \"received a joint summons... from the Customs & Excise\" meaning -- but as I say, I\'m no legal expert.

agree  writeaway: ;-) (personally, I prefer summoned)/can't really see any other solution without more context/is definitely official, but summoned where is the big question. just to the office or to appear in court?

  -> Cheers! Yes, in the legal sense, this is the word, but I'm just not 100% the French is as specific here...// If it's not in the special legal sense, then 'summoned (to appear) before...' might be OK?

agree  gad: I was taught "summonsed", as opposed to "summoned" :)
