  1. Update! Today I received the MTC signed by the District Court Judge! Cavalry has made no attempt to contact me since filing the answer and MTC. What are my next steps?
  2. Filed my answer and the MTC arb at the same time. Sent Cavalry’s atty a copy certified mail return receipt. What should I expect to happen next?
  3. I will move 3 and 4 to 1 and 2 and remove the current first two defense points. The pdf file I attached a few posts above this one has full copy of their filed claim and exhibits. If you wouldn’t mind taking a look and then giving feedback on whether o should address each item under each count I would appreciate it greatly. I will only have two chances to file my answer this week and I’d like to do it tomorrow. Also, should I be attaching a copy of the card agreement as an exhibit item or just reference it as plaintiff’s exhibit #____? Thanks again for all of your assistance!
  4. Feedback on what I've put together thus far? STATE OF MAINE DISTRICT COURT LOC. XXXX DOCKET NO. XXXXXXX CAVALRY SPV I, LLC, Plaintiff, V . <Me>, Defendant DEFENDANT’S ANSWER AND AFFIRMATIVE DEFENSE COMES NOW Defendant &
  5. Okay, I have read the entire Arbitration Overview and Strategy thread. I'm now asking for help formulating an Answer to file and the MTC Arbitration. My intent is to deny knowledge of/deny the allegations forcing Cavalry to provide proof of signed contract/ownership and avoid using the earlier mentioned law firm as finances are tight right now and I really cannot afford their retainer. The claim filed by Cavalry lists two "Counts" with several points numbered under each count ( see my earlier attached pdf - Count I, #s 1-9, Count II, #s 10-12). Anyone willing to provide a rough outline
  6. He has handed me off to one of his associates whom he says has more experience in litigating debt collectors. He also said that he did so to keep my costs down. I am supposed to hear something from the associate tomorrow. Anyone have information on how arbitration works?/Been through arbitration and care to share your experience?
  7. Yes, it was a credit card. It was filed in district (not small claims) court. The agreement is in the pdf file attached to my last post (above). It does have an arbitration clause. The lawyer I spoke with earlier just called back minutes ago and I inquired about going the arbitration route. He suggested I don't. He is advising I file an answer and seek discovery. I have never been involved in a lawsuit before this and truthfully am unsure which route to go. Edited to add: If I follow the lawyer's suggestion to move for discovery, am I prevented from filing the MTC arbitration af
  8. Went to the court house to obtain a copy of the summons and complaint. The clerk was very stand-offish and kept insisting Cavalry needed to serve me. I ended up paying $30 for a copy of the claim. I've redacted some information for privacy. I've contacted a lawyer for a free consultation - he was very rude and said "well, do you owe them money or not". I said, well isn't that their burden to prove? He ended up saying this would be very costly to take to court and said I could send him the claim and he'd have an associate look it over. He implied I wasn't required to file an answer as I
  9. Received an Order for Service by Alternate Means via US mail (not certified) stating Cavalry SPV I,LLC filed a claim in District Court in the county in which I live in Maine. I have no copy of a complaint, only this letter that arrived in a envelope from the District Court. The name, phone number and address of their attorney (in Maine) is listed. The letter states I have 21 days to respond, but I'm not sure how to proceed without seeing the complaint. Advice on how to proceed?
