The clerk called several lawyers & creditors and requested those ppl meet those respective attorneys outside. The lawyer or maybe paralegal met each person in a private room. Unsure of each convo but when it was my turn I went in, said nothing & they requested a continuance. They apologized for a second continuance, said they don’t want to keep dragging me to court but set a new date. All of 30 min
Did you have the initial phone conference and during that call did the arbitrator set a time frame for discovery to be completed? Were these exhibits submitted outside of that time frame?
As stated above, even if sibmitted in the proper time, if you have any objection to the documents, you should file a written objection within 7 days and state why you object to them. You can further expand on your objection at the hearing, but if you don't object in writing withint 7 days first, the arbitrator may not allow you to object to them at the hearing. So, I would say, if your objection is anything other than untimely filed, then go ahead and send it now.
This is why I do not like the "dismiss" language in an MTC. I would always prefer a stay just for this very reason.
Let us know what the judge ends up saying. If you get an official "stay", then I would respond to the PRA email and copy JAMS and state that you object to PRA attempting to circumvent the arbitration case. I would send a copy of the judge's order with my objection and state that the court has ordered this case to arbitration and that a unilateral dismissal of the court case is not proper per the rules AND that regardless of the court case outcome, that you are the Claimant in the JAMS case and the Respondent has no authority to close a case filed against them.
After I send this email to PRA and JAMS, I would send a second email to the PRA attorney ONLY and in the subject line I would put "settlement offer". I would tell them that if they client does not wish to further pursue this case, that you will be willing to offer a mutual dismissal with prejudice, where they dismiss the court action with prejudice and you will dismiss the JAMS case with prejudice. If they agree to this, the "with prejudice" should take care of both the credit reports and 1099 issue, so there is no need to send a laundry list of wishes. Just make it simple with a mutual dismissal with prejudice.
Of course, again, this is ONLY if the court case is STAYED and you have that leverage to work with.
Depends on when you moved to Arizona. If it was after 2/3/2018 then yes the SOL is expired and moving to Arizona does not revive it. If you moved to Arizona while the SOL was alive then moving to Arizona extends it to the 6 years.
