  1. Thank you so much Clydesmom Thank you so much for your response, Clydesmom. The suit was filed in District Court in Texas. I'm not sure if that is the same as Justice Court where you are from. Based on your recommendation, I did not pursue the contract agreement with the debt collector for fear of forfeiting the opportunity to take this to Arbitration. I did submit a Demand For Arbitration with JAMS. Then I submitted to the court copy of Credit Card Agreement (found online), a copy the JAMS Demand for Arbitration ( Which was sent to Plaintiff and to JAMS Office in Dallas), Proof of Service (for Demand for Arbitration), a signed Motion to Compel Arbitration, and an Order to Compel Arbitration (with case information filled in for ease of use ). NOW, I have 2 days to figure out how to respond to the Debt Collector's Discovery Request (Request for Production, Request for Admissions, and First Set of Interrogatories). I'm worried that we might say something incorrectly and lose the Arbitration option. Do you have any insight as to the best way to go about that (and still maintain our focus on Arbitration)?
  2. My wife is being sued by second-round sub in the Bowie County District Court of Texas. We have submitted our answer to the court and requested a signed copy of the original credit card agreement from the debt collector. We stated that, based on the original credit card agreement that arbitration is the proper forum resolution of this issue. It has been about two weeks and we still haven't received anything from the debt collector (including the copy of the credit card agreement that we requested). Should we expect that they will provide that to us before there is a hearing? Also, I am preparing to submit the motion to compel arbitration to the court. And looking at the sample motion to compel listed in the Arbitration Overview and Strategy (quoted below) I'm wondering if there needs to be any sort of case numbers where there are blanks below (in red)? And if so, where would I find those numbers? I am not involved in any field of law, so any help here would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much in advance. “Rent-A-Center, West, Inc. v. Jackson , 561 U. S. __?__, _?___ (2010) (slip op., at 3)” “Stolt-Nielsen S. A. v. AnimalFeeds Int’l Corp. , 559 U. S. _?__, _?__ (2010)”
