Can a lawyer please help me or give me advise. I am being sued by Midland Funding Group, and I had already responded with a General Denial Form. Along with that I sent their lawyer a Bill of Particular to respond to within 10 days. I had sent out the Bill of Particular towards the end of April and did not get a response back from them until recently (October). It had been 5 months until they got back to me, is this allowed? Can something be done, like for me to ask the judge to drop the case because of their response time? As well, they stated basically that what I had asked for was not relevant to the case (which is BS), and that their client was still investigating and is not ready for trial.
Also, are they still allowed to contact me to collect debt since they are suing me. The other day I got a call from the lawyer, sent it straight to my voicemail, and in it they stated that this is an "attempt to collect a debt." Isn't this harassment since they are already suing me. Can I do something about this?
I'm not really sure where to go from here, any advise would greatly be appreciated.
Thanks so much!
