  2. can you address the specificity of the answer, though? should it be general, or point-to-point denial?
  3. from the florida rule book. i may as well send a response to the complaint anyway, though would prefer confirmation. I would probably go a general denial, or should i be specific? "© The Answer. In the answer a pleader shall state in short and plain terms the pleader's defenses to each claim asserted and shall admit or deny the averments on which the adverse party relies. If the defendant is without knowledge, the defendant shall so state and such statement shall operate as a denial. Denial shall fairly meet the substance of the averments denied. When a pleader intends in good faith to deny only a part of an averment, the pleader shall specify so much of it as is true and shall deny the remainder. Unless the pleader intends in good faith to controvert all of the averments of the preceding pleading, the pleader may make denials as specific denials of designated averments or may generally deny all of the averments except such designated averments as the pleader expressly admits, but when the pleader does so intend to controvert all of its averments, including averments of the grounds upon which the court's jurisdiction depends, the pleader may do so by general denial."
  4. one further inquiry, i have not yet responded to the complaint. When am I supposed to do that? Am I supposed to do that? Did I do that at the pre-trial hearing?
  5. The pre-trial hearing was rather simple and easy going. The lawyer hired by the plaintiff pulled each defendant she was there to sue one at a time to the side and got all of them to agree to settle except me. I told her that based on the evidence presented to me in the complaint I did not feel it was in my best interest to settle, and also denied all the entire complaint outright. When we went to the judge she explained for me (which I found rude, but she didn't say anything I felt was disparaging or detrimental so I kept that to myself) that I was denying the entire complaint. The judge ordered us to voluntary mediation (not voluntary in the sense that I can choose not to go, even though I denied the complaint) in 90 days. We have 60 days from June 5 to do discovery. I'm a month late and just got around to it today. Obviously simplest thing seemed to be to get a preset from somewhere on the forum,and I'll thank Admin for their thread full of presets. Follows is the version of request for production of documents I've made. In the complaint my full account number is never stated, and what i include is the most complete version of it i can find. How should I format that? and also the references to the plaintiff. "PRODUCTION OF DOCUMENTS From Defendant to Plaintiff 1. The alleged credit application from Account Number 4191302(redacted)7146 bearing the defendant’s signature; 2. The alleged credit agreement from Account Numbers 4191302(redacted)7146 that states interest rate, grace period, terms of repayment, et cetera; 3. Itemized statements or credit card statements from Account Number 4191302(redacted)7146 that demonstrate how the alleged amount of $4494.80 was calculated; 4. A contract, agreement, assignment, or other means demonstrating that Equable Ascent Financial, LLC f/k/a Hilco Receivable, LLC had the authority and capacity, and was legally entitled to collect on the alleged debt from Account Number 4191302(redacted)7146; 5. Letter(s) sent to defendant by Equable Ascent Financial, LLC f/k/a Hilco Receivable, LLC, demonstrating an attempt to collect on the alleged debt, Account Number 4191302(redacted)7146; 6.
