  1. So I had court today via zoom but because PRA didn't show up the judge extended the hearing another month. Is this normal? When I asked about the motion for private arbitration the judge said I misread the agreement and she DOES have jurisdiction and the agreement I sent in doesn't have my signature so it is not valid. I had attached the affidavit that was notarized stating the agreement was true but she's saying that's not my original agreement. I am at a loss as to what to do now. Should I try and settle with PRA or is there something else I can do?
  2. I tried the multiple sites listed and it's showing the case doesn't even exist. They filed the case in small claims court in a very small rural town of less than 2500 people which is why I am assuming I cannot find anything.
  3. So I submitted the response back in July with the motion for private arbitration. I never got a response from the judge or portfolio recovery. Today I got a letter from the judge with a court date for debt court. Does this mean she rejected my request or what can I expect exactly? I want to be prepared when I go to this zoom meeting on Oct. 20th.
  4. bump anyone? I have to send my answer to the court by tomorrow.
  5. On a template I found for Defendant's answer for Texas court (on Texas Law Help forms), it has a part to request judgement and sign? Is this correct? I do not want to fill out the wrong part. In my answer for specific pleas made under penalty and perjury I stated that it was a matter for private arbitration and I am asking the court to grand my motion to compel private arbitration and to stay proceeding pending arbitration. I checked arbitration and award as my affirmative defense and under additional affirmative defense I write the statement of Lack of subject matter jurisdiction quote f
  6. Okay I've researched. I'm trying to learn as fast as possible and I've gotten that part typed up ready to go. Do I need to file with AAA or JAMS already or wait and see the response? Do I also need to send a copy of my response to the lawyer as well?
  7. I'm not sure how much information is needed, but I was just served papers today so I'm trying to figure out how to respond. Part of me wants to offer a settlement to just be done with this considering it's less than $900 but I would not even know how to go about that without risking getting a judgement filed against me. 1. Who is the named plaintiff in the suit? Portfolio Recovery Associates 2. What is the name of the law firm handling the suit? (should be listed at the top of the complaint.) Scott and Associates, P.C. Carrollton, TX
