What are my rights when a subpeona server divulges information to my neighbor?

Question Details:

My husband and I are preparing to file bankruptcy, we are trying to get the money needed to file. One of our creditors, has tried to serve me a subpoena while I was at work. I know this because the server spoke to my neighbor. The server identified himself as a detective with the Sheriff's office. He told my neighbor I had done something against my creditor. Is this legal for him to disclose anything to my neighbor?
