  1. If you want to use arbitration as a defense: YES. Florida is the one state that requires a MTC instead of an answer if that is the path a Defendant wants to take. READ the thread he gave you on arbitration. It explains ALL of that. After you have been served but before the deadline to answer. This has happened in FL before. When the case is filed the court automatically sets the pre-trial date assuming service will go smoothly. For the cases where the Defendant remains unserved the hearing has to be rescheduled as it cannot take place without properly serving ALL parties in the suit. Even if you get served the day before the hearing as scheduled right now they have to change the date because FL law gives a Defendant a fixed amount of time to prepare once they are served and I believe it is 30 days.

  3. Case update: my MTC hearing was this morning and it was granted! Midland was a no-show again, just like my previous MTC hearing this year. I will start the arbitration process with JAMS once the electronic order is available which the judge said will take 24-48 hours. Some notes: The judge did say "This is unlike them" when referring to Midland having no one present for them. He took a few minutes to review my POS-030 form (PROOF OF SERVICE BY FIRST-CLASS MAIL) to make sure it was all in order. Just for reference, I filed the POS-030 form, a copy of the certified mail receipt, and a copy of the domestic return receipt (green card) as one document as proof of service. Also, this was a remote video hearing, not in person.
