I just wanted to thank everyone that posts in these forums. This is my first post but by reading everyone's advise I was able to get Midland Funding to dismiss their case against me. Midland was suing me for a little over 18K in IL. With help from these forums I was able to file my appearance, my answer, and send in my discovery. Midland and their attorneys never answered my discovery requests and on Friday I received their motion to dismiss, without prejudice of course. One thing I have to mention was how sad it was in court to watch the other people being sued getting taken advantage of by Midland. When I walked into court there was a lady with a desk of the side of the bench. She had a copier/printer and a large stack of files. It looked like she was a court employee. She would walk up to the people entering the court and ask to see their paperwork. If it said Midland on it she took the paperwork away from them. told them to take a seat, and wait to be called. This was an assistant for Midland's lawyer. Midland's lawyer would then call everyone one by one and quickly say that she was the lawyer for the plaintiff. She would then ask them if they owed the debt. The people were obviously confused and each one said that they think it was a credit card, loan, etc that they had before. The lawyer would then hand them a piece of paper and tell them that if they agree this was a debt they had then they need to sign it. You could tell that each person was confused and thinking that someone from the court was telling them to sign something. They would then sign the paper saying the owed the debt and their case was over. Judgement for Midland.
