    I have to pay the Arbitration filing? Only AAA allowed (Best Buy)

    Ok. I will update again in 60 days, hopefully with a final resolution in case anyone else in GA gets this type of PRA attorney!

    I have to pay the Arbitration filing? Only AAA allowed (Best Buy)

    Yes, I did file the JAMS case without mentioning the debt, but JAMS still sent me an invoice. I will send my check in for $250 and retain all the documentation. Should I send PRA a CMRR that I sent in the filing fee? I emailed the case manager and the attorney that I would be willing to pay my portion of the $250, and asked the PRA attorney to please pay their portion of the filing fee according to the JAMS rules so that we may proceed with the arbitration. The attorney emailed back, and this is what he said. So he's going to try to argue that I need to pay their $1250 portion of the filing fee! I never said that in court. I said that I would pay my filing fee once he sent his written communication to JAMS that we can arbitrate. That's all.

    Another update: The case manager for the JAMS case emailed both me and PRA and sent us both invoices. Mine was for $250. PRA was for $1250. The attorney for PRA responded back that they were not paying for any of the filing fee and that I was to pay 100% of it. The case manager responded to that with: According to consumer rules, the most I can pay is $250, and that if the respondent does not wish to proceed with the matter, then the case will be closed and we will be sent letters. I'm guessing this PRA attorney knows nothing about JAMS and what this would mean for them...

    UPDATE: Went to court AGAIN (this is probably my 4th time on this same case). I had the same PRA attorney show up (he's not with a firm I learned, he's an attorney from PRA), but this time I had a different judge. This is what happened. Our case was called, and immediately the PRA attorney tells the judge that he did receive the JAMS application from the defendant (me), but that I did not pay my filing fee so that I am stalling the arbitration process. I then told the judge that I was not going to pay the filing fee because the plaintiff has yet to send JAMS a written confirmation that they agree to the terms and conditions for the JAMS arbitration process, because JAMS will not proceed with the case without it. Then he goes on to say "what is she talking about, I never got anything from JAMS or heard anything from them at all!!" He tells the judge that I should have sent him that information, and wants to see what I was sent. The bailiff makes a copy of my docs from JAMS, and gives it to him. He looks at it and says, "judge this address is 3 years old. I never got any of this." Anyway, he was so aggressive and whiney, but the judge allowed another 60 day continuance! I have to give the PRA attorney the JAMS contact info and case manager info within 10 days, and the judge said that we have to meet back in 60 days to see where the arbitration process is. The PRA attorney tells me, "If you give me the email, I'll send them a note write now to confirm the arbitration process." UGHHHH. So does this mean that they are adamant on going through with arbitration? Any ideas on where I should go from here? I was planning on sending a CMRR for all the JAMS stuff I received as well as the contact info for them today. Then I was planning on trying to object on paying my filing fee (however, I don't know if I have any grounds on that bc the cc agreement says they will pay up to $75,000 unless it is related to a debt collection). So I guess I'm stuck paying the consumer fee, but is this PRA attorney for real? He's going to confirm and proceed w/ arbitration? Has anyone ever had this happen... please help. P.S. I did try my best to get the judge to sign my order for MTC arbitration, and the attorney tried to tell her it was unnecessary, but she said that she would sign it... well she didn't use my template, and signed a different order just stating that we are to meet back in 60 days, and I am to send the info to the PRA attorney. NOT my MTC. Uggg.😩

    Being sued by Stenger & Stenger

    Hi @Clydesmom, I have a question on this: Why should he/she not try arbitration if there is a clause for it (in the year before and after if he can't find 2015 specifically)? And what are the new GA Business Records laws that would hinder him? Just wanted to get your thoughts on that. Thank you!

    @thomasp this is the email I have for PRA - PRACustomerCare@portfoliorecovery.com, however, I doubt that it would ever make it back to my specific attorney. Have you done that where it's actually been communicated to the specific attorney?

    No, I wish I did. They have no email addresses on any of the paperwork I have from that attorney. I even tried to google search him, and although I can find some law credentials there is no email associated with him. Should I mail anyway or hand deliver in court?

    You have been spot on with everything. I don't have an email for PRA, so I have to send via certified mail. We'll see what they respond. However, we go back to court so not sure if the attorney will get the letter before we meet in court yet again.

    Yes @fisthardcheese, they responded today. Here is what they said: I am going to respond that I want to dispute it with JAMS, but I doubt if I contact PRA that they will agree to pay the filing fee.

    Hi @fisthardcheese, I actually did not object because the language in the card agreement states this: However, since I filed w/ JAMS I'm assuming I'll have to pay my portion of the $250 since this is related to debt collection? PRA has yet to respond, and we go back to court on this soon and I'll have to show the judge that I have kept up my end of this process.

    Does anyone know if JAMS will refund if the other party decides to drop the case?
  12. What would I say if L&J argue that the letter AAA states that they are allowed to pursue this in small claims? Just stick to what the contract states that I have a right to arbitration? Because in the Citibank agreement, there is a note that says: If L&J don't agree to private arbitration, then we go to trial, and if the judge denies my MTC because of the statement above, what would you do?
  13. UGH... I got served officially now by L&J. They sent me a letter and replied back to AAA (based on the wording above) that they want to pursue this in small claims. Do I still have a shot at arbitration? Should I file in my answer that I filed for arbitration first? Or should I call AAA and ask them that per my agreement I'm allowed to pursue this in arbitration. Shoot... not sure what to do. Can anyone advise?

    JAMS send me an invoice for the $250, so I guess I'll have to pay that? I have to go back to court in a few weeks, so I'll have to show that I've done my part of the arbitration, right?
  15. HELP. I did file arbitration before they L&J sued me. I received my letter from AAA about the arbitration the day before I got a package mailed to me from Lazega and Johanson (they didn't serve me, but sent a letter in the mail regarding their court filing which I thought was weird), but in AAA's response it states this: Does this mean that L&J can request to have this matter solved in small claims instead of through arbitration if they send in a written request? I was thinking if I went ahead and started AAA, that I would have to right to do this through arbitration... Thoughts anyone?
