  1. So the fiancee' was served 12 days ago from a firm called Rausch, Sturm, Israel...... claiming that they were representing CITI Bank for an old credit card. We have been putting together the answer and today she recieved a letter from Rausch stating that they are "authorized" to accept a settlement on behalf of Citi in such and such amount. When we checked her credit report the account stated that citi had charged off the account a while back. (it's still within SOL) Is it normal for a firm to file and then send a letter out like that? should we send a DV to the firm along with the answer
  2. And if it was sold or transferred, can the firm put Citibank as the Plaintiff in the case or is that a violation? (they have citi listed as the plaintiff at this time).
  3. anyone dealt with Rausch, Sturm, Israel, Enerson & Hornick?? Fiancee' received a summons from this firm stating they are representing Citi for an old credit card. Ho can i verify that citi is actually the one suing and not this firm?
  4. Hi everyone, it's been a while since i have been on here. Fortunately for me my issues were taken care of last year. Went to court on a couple issues, learned what i needed from the good people here and basically put the CA's in their place in the court room. It's been a while since i have had to deal with any of the credit stuff so i am going to need a "refresher course" of action from everyone. New issue has risen though. My fiancee' was served today from a firm called Rausch, Sturm, Isreal, blah blah in Las Vegas. They are claiming that they are representing Citibank on
  5. read my post below about smoking them in court was against the same JDB as you are dealing with.
  6. As many of you know i have been dealing with a CA that filed suit against me back in July '07. After many months of requesting information from them and receiving nothing I filed a motion for summary judgement last June. That motion was granted but the local attorney filed a motion to set aside the judgement claiming they never received the notice of motion from myself. In the meantime they filed a motion of for summary judgement of their own which really made the whole case very messed up. In this MSJ from the CA they finally added some old statements of the credit card account and an aff
  7. yes i provided them with a notice of motion sent through the mail along with a certificate of mailing as is required by local court rules. They claim they never got the notice (how convienent for them), yet in their own motion they state that their client was well aware of the hearing date and they had more than three months notice of the hearing date. They also had plenty of times to file the proper oppositions to my counter-claims and never filed a thing. It seems pretty straight forward to me but just wanted to check here and see if anyone else has any thoughts on it is all.
  8. Just received a motion in the mail yesterday from the plaintiff to Set Aside the Summary Judgement i received against them. They claim that i did not serve them properly and that they had no knowledge of the calendar date. yet in the motion they do state that their client knew of the date but that the local council (the one who filed the original complaint as well as this motion) did not. I did send them the Notice of Motion along with a copy of the courts Certificate of Mailing when i sent them the NOM. How should i go about answering this Motion? Any Ideas? thanks guys and gals
  9. My question is regarding MSJ. Can defendant file for MSJ regarding a counter-claim?
  10. No, i have told you guys everything. I am in the same boat as you, the have asked for nothing more than a MSJ. they haven't even ackowledged the fact that the sub judge told the attorney that judgement was granted. So i am thinking the same as you, i will just go in to court with the papers you suggest and see what the judge says. Judgement was granted as I requested and i am going with that.
  11. should i file anything in response to their motion?
  12. thanks Lecasbas. i was thinking the same thing. As far as I can tell the judge only wants the hearing to clarify the amounts in the order. It's also wuite obvious that this attorney's firm really has no clue what they are doing. The day of the last hearing, the sub judge called another case in front of the court, from the SAME ATTORNEY'S OFFICE, for the SAME PLAINTIFF, immeditely prior to ours being called, and the attorney had no clue what the case was about and no one else from his firm was there to represent. I am really not to worried about anything with this i just want to make sur
  13. Well part of my counter-claim was to have it dismissed with predjudiceand i have the court minutes which show that my motion to preclude and for summary judgement was granted. even the substitute judge noted that he could see the judgement was granted. The new motion filed by the attorney is a basic summary judgement with no mention of ANYTHING that was filed previous to this. It definitely is not any attempt at having my judgement vacated. It's as if they are treating it like nothing has happened since they filed the original. They even state in the new motion things which are blatently
  14. The above is a copy of my posting back in August for a case i won against a CA, or at least i thought i did and am now confused on what to do. I was sued by a CA in July of 2007. FIled my answer and asked for validation. Sent other attorney several requests for discovery and filed a a counter claim for violations of the FCRA and FDCPA. After not getting any response from other attorney for a year i filed to have the case put on calendar and went to court in August asking for my counter-claim (violations and punitive damages). Other side didn't show up and i was awarded the judgement. When
  15. Hi everyone, I have been away from here for a few months but am back and recharged. Since my last post two of my credit reports have jumped nearly 70 points into the mid 600's. the problem i haveis that one (experian) is not moving, it is still at 520. When i compare all three side by side they are identical except that experian shows my student loans on it and it's not on the others. the student loans are not late at all. Any ideas on how to either get this off the list or why the number is so much lower than the other scores?
  16. Way to go!!! Going into court is ALOT like preparing to be in a play or a perfermance of any kind. The more you prepare and the better you rehearse the less likely you are to be nervous or forget anything when your "on stage". Good Job again!!!
  17. I was told that once the order is filed and they get it that they have 90 days to pay up.
  18. one of the items i thought about putting in the counter claim was that the owner of the JDB had to get down on his hands and knees and kiss my feet while he handed me the check.................but then i thought that might be pushing it a little:notworthy:
  19. already working on it. I was told the same thing yesterday as well. Gut level feeling though says to me that they just may pay so this goes away for them.
  20. I guess i can put this here too.....went to court today and won my summary judgement against the Plaintiff for over 30k!!! now i just need to get the money
  21. so I finally had my day in court today. Was there because I filed a Motion for Summary Judgement in regards to my counter-claim against the CA who initally sued me last July. After requesting validation after validation and discovery after discovery and receiving nothing but continued collection activies and violations of the FCRA for failing to mark the account as disputed, I amended my answer to include the counter-suit. I then continued to try to obtain discovery and validation but received nothing from the plaintiff. I did receive a Stipulation Dismissal from them in April which i did
  22. I was wondering what everyone knows about co-signers? I would like to get a small personal loan (3-4k) to help with a couple small emergencies and car repairs. My scores are not great though (570's) but I was thinking a co-signer with scores in the upper 700's might help me get the loan. I have never had a co-signer and dont really know if it would help my cause or not. Any thoughts or experiences with this?
  23. So I have been fighting with Palisades in the courts for nearly a year now. They filed last July and served me in September. Since then i have requested document after document and continued to recieve no response from them or their attorney other than continued collection activity and violations of the FCRA for continued reporting without the correct notation in the reports. Even after I sent their attorney, as well as themselves, warning after warning regarding the violations and the requests for documents that were being ignored i received nothing. I amended my answer to include the counter
