Changing from passive voice to active voice
How do I change "dragged into court" into the active voice?
Imagine attempting to implement the same strategy during the litigation process, when all issues and all persons involved are dragged into court at an assigned date, time, and docket number.
I second the others, but I will attempt to take a stab at it.

I ran it through Grammarly. It liked the structure, but didn't like all the words. Plus I found ways to make it more concise.

Also, I just spotted something. The "at" only makes sense with two of the items on the list. You can do things at a date or at a time, but can you do things at a number? I agree with Tolley on this part.

Might I ask why you would want to change it into active? There are times when passive voice works better and this is one of them, in my opinion. And the others are right in spotting the 'at'. Surely, you could be assigned a docket number but not dragged into court at a docket number.
