  1. NEED RECOMMENDATION~~~ Can anyone recommend an appeals lawyer in Michigan?? Preferrably ProBono.... PM please!! And yes I know about the Bar referral service... But considering the issues and what this is for, maybe someone knows of an appeals lawyer who has knowledge in CC cases... Will update when I can.....
  2. SingleDadJames, I am researching this topic. Are you around? I would like to fire up the discussion on this again.... So, the way Kay v Lesher reads is IF the attorney puts a dunning letter on their letterhead, and after the 30 day validation is up, does not sue (in what time frame???), that is the violation. If they do sue, there is no violation?
  3. Sorry to dredge up an old thread, but I JUST read this SC ruling and am trying to learn more about this. Question: Does anyone have any knowledge of any cases where this case has been cited re: "ignorance of the law is not an excuse"??? Especially in relation to debt collector suits????
  4. uuuhhhhh.... I think some more learned members will come and comment on this exact issue .... which I believe they will tell you is a HUGE problem... for the other side!
  5. A wee bit off topic..... How do you copy and paste off the MCR online book of civil procedures (or any other pdf. document for that matter)??? I'm getting very tired of hand typing everything!! EDITED TO ADD: Figured it out.... Never Mind.... nothing to see people... move on, move on...
  6. Basically MCL 600.2145 states that IF a creditor would like to sue you by claiming an account stated/open account, then they CAN attach an affidavit to the complaint. The affidavit has to signed and dated within the 10 days PRIOR to the suit being filed for it to be considered prima facie evidence. (ie: so if they filed the suit on Jan. 10th, the affidavit would need to be signed and dated on Jan. 1st to the 10th to be in line with this rule--just as an example... don't quote my exact counting of days....) IF the person they are suing does not file a counter affidavit to rebutt the affidavit
  7. Oh MIO DIOS!!! My head is spinning!! :speechless: Let me see if I can do any more damage...-- errr... help you out any.... I take it from your post count this is not your first time posting here.... so you should have done a link back to your original post so we could read about what you have done so far.... Now on to your confusion .... There are plenty of attorney's who are first used as a "collection agency" by the creditor. They are hoping that the alleged debtor will be scared into paying due to the fact that an attorney is the one contacting them about the debt. Pretty much anyon
  8. :LolPointUp: but I do not think that would help.... maybe it could help the other side though ... but I'm going to wait for the judge on that....

  12. Keep your chin up Sleepless!!! We are all here rooting for you!!! And, their "offer" to settle seems a bit.... "hinkey".... I might bring it up in front of the judge about how the numbers don't match....
