  1. I was just reading this old thread about this very subject that may be of some help: I also just bought this book about discovery, which is interesting:
  2. thanks. that's what i figured.
  3. These are JDB's. About a year until the SOL is up in TX. I defend myself and counter-sue every time. I just wish there was a court website where I could search for my name to see when they file against me. I'm not even sure which judicial district I am in to call a local court every now and then to check.
  4. I've read a lot about them, and some people swear by them, while others say they will backfire on you. Are you really putting the CRA's on the spot by asking them for something they don't have?
  5. Ok, thank you. I couldn't find anything, either.
  6. OK, thanks. Is there a website for the Justice Court records?
  7. I recently moved from TN to Montgomery County, TX. A few JDB's will surely follow me here eventually. I think I found the website to keep an eye out for lawsuits against me, but I'm not sure I'm using it right. When I search my name, nothing comes up, which it shouldn't yet, but to test it I also searched under 'Business Name" for Portfolio and Midland, and nothing comes up for them, either. The closest I came was finding an appeal for a judgment for Portfolio from some lower court while searching random names. Do the different judicial districts have their own searchable websites for JDB suits?
  8. Yup, I may contact them and try to settle if I get served, especially since I will be making much more money soon. I suppose I could waive service and file and answer, then hire a lawyer to show up at the hearing in November, since I will be able to afford one then. I'll call the courthouse and ask if I can appear by phone - good idea. I may also go by there and get a copy of the complaint so I can see who and for how much. Javitch Block is the law firm.
  9. I keep an eye on my county's court website here in TN since I know a few JDB's are after me. One got filed against me by Portfolio yesterday, with a hearing date of 11/02, but I'm moving to Texas at the end of August. (got a much better paying job) There is no info on who the OC is or the amount. Right now I can't afford a lawyer, but with my new job I might be able to come November when the first hearing is. It seems to take a while for process servers to get to people where I live in rural TN, so I may be gone by the time they try to serve me, but I won't count on that. I always fight JDB's and make them prove their case and will use arbitration if that is an option, but I won't be here for the hearing date, even if I file an answer before I move, so I'm not sure what to do.
  10. OK, thanks. That makes sense, especially if the defendant didn't try to defend themselves or at least fill out the Sworn Denial form.
  11. I don't know anything about the case, either, which is why I asked if you guys could guess how they got the judgement before the re-scheduled hearing.
  12. Sorry to be unclear. this isn't my case, but Discover is after me, so that's what i was wondering. you think the bad guy attorneys filed for a MSJ in the mean time? makes sense if the defendant didn't do much.
  13. Help me understand what is going on here. They had a continuance until March 27th, but a judgement was entered on March 4th.

  14. I'm not really going to, I was just curious. I research JDB's and OC's who may sue me eventually on my county's court website, and a lot of the times, if the suit is never served because the Defendant is "not to be found," either the attorney dismisses the case without prejudice, or it just sits in limbo. I have a three like that from where they tried to serve me at my old address in a different county.
