  1. mediation is never recorded, or shoudlnt be. ITs "behind closed doors"
  2. You could ask them for a more responsive answer within x amount of days or you will file the apropriate motion with the court. (i dont know ny rules). The thing is if they do get you what you want. will that hurt or help you? If they can even get it.... I beleive you should respond to everythign they send. bomb them with mail, file motions or objections. If they say they can provide a list of witnesses, make them. Plaintiff objects to Defendants first response to Demand for discovery and Inspection to the extent that it requests information gathered in anticipation of litigation in viola
  3. I got the impression it was a "good cop" mediator, "bad cop" him. His walking out of the room was to make me "think" about it that was plainley clear. It was his way of intimidating and negotiating, His attitude was all about intimidation and done rudely so. The way he tried to talk down to me, told me not to interupt him , even though he would interupt me -- to look at him in the eyes as I read paperwork to myself. Thier is no way he has a happy home life, no woman, or man would put up with that for more then the 2-3 hours I did (yes we mediated that long). See I am a very calm person, I
  4. Think I answered my own question. I can do one of 2 things if they don't follow through 1 sue for violations or submit a motion to enforce a settlement.
  5. It said sofd will be filed with prejudice once the check clears
  6. Hi we settled my case in mediation for almost nothing , the court paperwork did not say with or without prejudice. On the back of his business card I made him write the stipulation of my check clearing first then he would submit it with prejudice he initialed it and so did the mediator. Should I worry, said I should reciece paperwork in a few days.
  7. Thanks all, the part I didnt want tto do is sit aroundall day waiting for a witness to show up, that wouldnt that I would then have dismisssed since it was not bought up in discovery. Liek I said, by me going to work after words instead of waiting, I made more money then I paid out (or will by the end of the day. If I sat and waited, I would have lost that much more jsut from not making money today. I did explain to the lawyer that this 200 is just so I can go home, he was such an arogant prick.. telling me to look at him, so I winked and went back to reading. kept interupting me, he walked
  8. WEll its over, we settled fro 200 dollars with prejudice .. I know that some of you woudl have rather gone into the court room, but they did not send some fresh out of college rookie like i expected, they sent the lawyer I have been dealingw ti hthe entire time. My nerves were a wreck, my stomach in nots.. But to pay 200 bucks and have it dismissed with prejudice... I think I got off lucky, I was doing some searches on the judge I would be infront of and he is not nice to pro-se peaple in this court in these cases. I made him sign a paper infront of the mediater and made them sign it to sa
  9. I am putting together my paperwork for monday. and my mind is blank about what to say to a judge when you want them to make a decision on the spot, after the plainitff pleads thier case... Please help .. I saved over my "what to say" document and am starting it over.
  10. Thank you again Bruno, I read that to but for some reason I was under the impression I had to tel lthe court i wanted one. You read it the same way I did so I think ill be fine, Im jsut getting nerves this week!
  11. Thanks for listening all here is toa better week! basement is fixed, what a gross way to start a weekend. Chopped down the culprit bush and rented an auger from Home depot. I had this problem last year at this time and never got around to taking out bush. Just have to dig my power washer out of storage and bleach the basement this week.
  12. Hello all, My case if it goes to court is next Monday. I am in NJ special civil court under 3k. I see it is suggested several times to get a court reporter incase you want to appeal the decision later, and to keep the judge a bit more honest. Does anyone know how to go about doing this? Do I talk to the court, or hire an outside agency?
  13. Colt fan I see what you are saying. They have a piece if paper that says accounts were sold, it has no reference to me, this evidence is hearsay without a proper witness. Without this paper in evidence no sale of accounts happened.
  14. Mine is in 2 weeks or so. I stopped in the clerks office today and straitened things out. I wanted to put a face to me, I assume being nice to the clerks definitely doesn't hurt, makes me more then a number. I would not be scared except that I read midland pretty much owns nj courts.
  15. Thank you for the update. Did they have a contract you both signed agreed to? I dont think i will negotiate but the 20 year thing and NJ courts not liking pro se from what i understand makes it scary. So nice to have less stress isnt it!
  16. I stopped in the court today, I handed in a letter to the court clerk it was a certification in response and sent pressler the same . I'm glad I did because I have a few motions pending that we're scheduled for after my court case , electronically it was messed up and the clerks apologized and fixed it. They also told me a few things I should have done instead, but that I basically did the same thing in a lot more steps , I apologized they said its ok. Overall it was a pleasant experience and I'm glad I went. I suggest everyone drop off papers in person at least once.
  17. Im not really a memeber of other forums since this case has taken all my free time. so just need to vent. got sued in june for a debt that isnt mine. lost my oldest friend to cancer in july lost my brother in law to a heart attack last week my boss who i love working for gave her 2 weeks pressler and pressler are giving me nerves and stomach issues all of a sudden i cant sleep finally when i got home from work todau, my toilets, washer, tub etc are backing up into the basement. smells wonderful. **** litterally hit the fan (i have a fan next to the vent for the washing machine -- **** water
  18. Hi, I hope someone reviews this and gives me some insitght into what they would do. I recieved a letter that presler sent addressed to the clerk of the court. asking to accept tis letter and elcosed certification to defendants objection to plantiffs motion for a more responsive answer to plantiffs supplimental interogatory. it has some state rules i can provide if it will help. basically it says plaintiff maintains that his answer remains non responsive. mind you it is not my account so it is difficult to answer. It is regarding did you own a dell comuputer. i hope writting this here does no
  19. Thank you Bruno, If i dont recieve it in the mail tommorow I will.
  20. I have a misc motion pending on my online court case since last week, and have not received a copy of it yet. I can almost guess it is to stop evidence I subbmitted to show the debt is not mine. (almost impossible to show evidence on something that is not yours...) But .. what happens if i dont receive this motnion in the mail, and depending on the type of motion it is, I miss the 5 day/10 day whatever deadline to answer? I plan on calling the court on this matter and a few other questions tommorow, but want your all opinion first. Thanks This is NJ special civil part.
