  1. Holy Cow Racecar.. that will surely cover all bases hehe. Especially the part since I have no idea who and what they are suing us for. And BV.. they did us predecessor in alot of the comments, I may have shortened it, I will have to look at it again in those discoveries you indicated. thanks. Cindy
  2. thanks racecar. I cant believe what they think passes as information in that crap! It was worse than my lawsuit ( this one is my boyfriends) They didnt even bother attaching stuff and yet claim they did. Liars and half assing stuff. Sheesh. Thanks so much for your help. I just didnt want to leave out any answers. I guess the privity answer isnt applicable until they prove more Right now it is just a bunch of their words. Hope you had a great holiday Cindy
  3. thanks. and the previous page of discovery questions? those are ok as I have listed? I was also going to put the bit about I leave the opportunity to amend my answers as needed if information presents itself.
  4. Request for disclosures ( continued) Pursuant to Rule 194, Plaint requests the following: ( NONE Of this really applies except the name I think) a correct names to lawsuit ( I will tell em the name right?) b. the name address of potential parties ........... none c/ legal theories and in general factual basis of the responding parties claims or defenses ( the responding party need not marshal all evidence that may be offered at trial) d. the amt and any method of calculating $ damage e the name address and phone of ppl having knowlede of relevant facts, brief statement of each iditenitfed connection to case ( kind of hard when I dont know what this is about) f For testifying experts ( list of rules/info needed documents addr etc) g.any indemnity and insuring agreements described in rule 19.3 (f) h. any settle agreements described in rule 192.3g i any witness statements described in in rule 192.3h j in a suit alleging physical or mental injury and damages from the occurences that is the subject of the all medical record and bills that are related to to the injuries or related to injuries or asserted or in lieu there of, an authorization permitting discolosure of medical records and bills. ( I dont think this applies) I really appreciate any help in how to answer, and what I need to poke them back with because they sure are sneaky rat basterds sneaking in some of this stuff. Like fake docs that arent there and no info on the "Account" WE HAVE denied or verified many of our debts for months. WITH Lex Credit program no less so We have records of it in two places. Lying, conniving sneaky lil so and sos. Lily livered baboons IMO. Thanks again CC

If def requested verification of debt from plaintiff, plaintiff verified the debt prior to filing this lawsuit ( WHAT? They said I didnt verify this debt and then they say if I did do it, they verified) How can they do both? HOW DO I ANSWER THIS BULL HOCKEY?
  6. I received A letter from the Judge regarding the mediation that was sent out after our answers to the suit. Both parties had to agree to mediate ,(I did Plaintiff didnt.) So now the court will set a date after our discoveries are due Dec 7. I m really surprised the Attorney is going to drag this out and not go for mediation. On a happier note, Legal aide has taken my case and an attorney is taking over. They also will get me any damages, but will keep any awards for attorneys ( which I have no problem since they are free for low income folks.) I d prefer for them to nail the JDBs.
  7. The instructions the court sent for the basic answers was enough for my courts, the denial I mean. I used texas rockers plea to the jurisdiction as well on a separate page. And I included my page for insolvency and the fact I was on social security which makes my income garnish free. In fact in texas, our income is not available for garnishment. Although they can get our goodies supposedly ( like a lien against your lake house and your four runners and your bass boats ... as if you have all that when you are in debt!) You need to tell them they filed in the wrong jurisdiction. I dont know how that is worded. But apparently simple english is fine in texas courts. I went to the court house and asked how to word my answers and the clerks helped. The court will re route the suit to the right one ( or dismiss it and make plaintiff refile?) But it makes it harder on plaintiff, and easier on you/. I find it easier to file papers in person at my neighborhood court house. I get them stamped and then go mail copies to the Plaintiff. After I filed the answer, the judge sent out the mediation letter alm ost same day. My case info is at this thread if you want to read... ( it starts out goofy cus I didnt know what I was doing and gets a lil better.) You can PM me when you have 10 posts, so just go posting in here and there.. Ill be happy to share what I ve learned. I m going to legal aid in downtown so I might learn more info next week. and if you want you can go to my case when it happens to watch.. Dont mind. I m a wamu refugee. They have to prove that I had Wamu and then had chase and then it was sold to equable. My attornery suing showed nothing and wants Me to prove it. I was told by court to just write deny to anything I didnt have or agree with,. The LESS info the better to them was what the clerk said. Forgot the link. duh. http://www.creditinfocenter.com/forums/there-lawyer-house/316716-texas-answering-suit-debt-attorney-equable.html:?
  8. Which court are you being sued in? Is it the right venue? Im in Harris county as well. Alot of cases get filed in wrong venues here I found out. ( ie near where you live?) One of ours is in the wrong venue ..downtown and we are having them refile. Mine is in the right one.. JP court pct 4. After I answered the general denial, the Judge sends out a letter for mediation date ( both parties have to agree to mediation...or else it goes to court trial date, but that court date is months away.) I was told friday Mediation is not going to happen in October or even November in all likelihood. First I have to do answers to the court papers the Attny sent for Equable. and I have to do my discovery to them as well ( I was served on 9/25 so I m right ahead of you in scheduling) We have 50 days to get our answers in to the attnys, so you still have time to read and learn.
  9. Bwhaha I went in to file my mediation answer today and I got lost leaving where I had just entered 4 minutes before. LOL. (I told them I had problems. )It was a short left and a four step right to the office. I ended up in someones office looking for the exit. They had a a good giggle . I found out mediations will be behind schedule. ..at least 6 weeks to 8 weeks from now. Postponing is alright by the court as well. I guess that shores up the medical responses to the plaintiff as well, so if I am difficult to get into court, maybe they just dont want to mess with answering me. The clerk said dont reschedule my surgeries.
  10. am I reading this right? Does this mean that the friend becomes responsible for my debt/? I m sure I m wrong.
  11. thanks, Ill guess Ill have to ask the court. Attorneys hear pro bono and run. Edited to add ( I had to post because I got more news today and that made me think of this issue and couldnt find it in the threads that werent locked... ) Bruno, I had found that Friend of the court staute, didnt know when to submit that. Should I just put it in now? Legal aid is supposed to give me an answer if they are taking case next week. I have to give answer to mediation by tomorrow, so I m filing those papers at the clerks. I had noticed whilst answering the discovery, that I truly had no knowledge of some items... thats what made me ask about the dementia part. I wasnt incompetent back then.. but have grown that way over the last couple of years.
  12. having medical issues, I have to work around the timing of my case. Im concerned about missing suits deadlines. Filing mediation papers tomorrow. I think I am in early stages of suit. I have til Nov for filing o Disco/Interogs. I will be tested in two weeks for the surgery needs which they will schedule after Oct 17. But I have at least 2 weeks of recovery which means no driving to PO etc. I d prefer to not stress either. So can I do the surgeries or should I wait til I get the discoveries done? Or mediations done? Or should I plead to the court to postpone all this? Also, I know that the answer "I dont know" is not an acceptable answer in court. ever. But what if someone is on Alzheimers meds and has diagnosis of dementia? Truly cant remember I mean. Does that work against defendant?
  13. I think that is safest. Ive been searching threads ( alot are locked so Icant ask in them) I know we arent to say 'I cant remember" To the judge, but what if we have a true inability/medical condition that makes it where you cant remember? I know denial will cover me in the Discovery and Interrogs. and it will be truthful. Plus I dont want to open the door to anything that they can use. I do know my name LOL but beyond that I have lots of gaps. (but documentation and diagnosis of dementia and all) so I guess cant help in own defense. Therefore no meeting of the minds, how can I help in defense etc.
  14. Legal Aid said I was articulate today. Thats good, although It took me 30 minutes to drive around the block to find the entrance to the parking garage LOL She said to be simple in the denials to their Admisions and Productions. No long explanations. She also said they will study suit and will decide if taking suit. I m supposed to wait to file answers and then to ask for discovery. in Plain inenglish. I didnt feel like I got much help personally. I did learn that they can garnish anything over 2 x my social security in my bank acct ( as if I could save that much) so the trick is not to have savings over 2k.
  15. er, actually texas, my last review was decidely downhill from the original in 2000. I allegedly got a 5k balnce card with a 700.00 income from wamu. ( they are the ones who were crazy.) but the SSA has to review ppl periodically, and the reviews are deteriorating. ( dont feel as sick as the docs say though) the one I sent the attny was from 09. the letter from neuro is from 8/12. progression is apparent. Wonder if that does help suit.? I dont cash checks anymore . My family has to run my finances alot. I have to have people watch my groceries, drs visits, I forget to eat or bathe, cant drive/... my driving beause I cant find my way home sometimes, I cant speak at times, I forget words, spelling, stutter badly, faint often and so on ( those are new symptoms in last year) some days I m just fine. Others I wont leave house because of the shame of losing who I used to be. ( I m barely 48) But I started Alzheimers meds only 9months ago... so that of course is a prgressive disease. it would not have been showing in 08.
  16. ahh. that would be me. Whwere would I put that into my answers? I actually have documents to that effect from the neurologists and review docs for SSA. Bad thing is, I sound articulate and intelligent, but the mood is labile and if questioned I cannot focus or remember things even from yesterday . ( my car rear gears broke last night, I told someone to get some advice and then called the same person today, less than 10 hours later. She pointed this out, very concerned for me. I dont remember to eat or bathe unless I write it down. But I sound great. haha)
  17. I personally leave the ones alone that are coming off soon. no use in stirring up the nest. I try to fix the big ones cus those are going to be lawsuits sooner or later. I also look for the blatant errors. wrong name, ss number etc. some of it wasnt mine cus it was not my number. once that was removed from CR, I had the bare facts to work with. You didnt say if the the big debts were with the OC or with collection agencies that I could see. PS i was told here, the folks like everything in one thread for some reason.. I m like you, I like multiple threads.. I m just sayin...
  18. oh you mean FeeBay? lol. They do have the traffic. thats a bonus. You have to play close to the rules and maintain a good rating with them otherwise they will boot ya. Which is a good thing to maintain the integrity of the site. etsy charges 20 cents per listing for 4 months plus the 3% for sale and pps cut of 3% Rubylane is more pricey but is for more expensive items like Art Deco period and antiques etc. They have a flat fee last time I checked and special adverts. They now have an off shoot company to cover lessser priced things and non antique things ( cant remember the name sorry) Zibbet is less trafficked right now, sometimes does a premium acct for life at 100.00 for unlimited listings, Artfire is always changing and mgmt is run by a meglamaniac in my opinion. But they were unlimited listings for 7, 9 pr 11 bucks a month when you signed up. I like the yardsellr feature on Facebook. Always sold quickly on that. Plus there is google plus1 and pinterest and twitter and all the other stuff to help your exposure now. its amazing what you can do to self promote, I personally can t stand the MLM stuff ( sounds like a Ponzi scheme for some reason) But Ive been wrong before.. hehe I hope that helps the other posters. I agree with dave, its all about lil streams of income..
  19. am I invisible all of a sudden? the underlined is the quesion part in the posts above.
  20. I used to sell cruises around the world on Luxury cruise lines ( and took people on the ships to Europe, Australia, alaska, the greek Isles etc... I learned to handle problems and to talk my way thru problems and market new ideas. Selling is selling I sell online as do a number of friends. It depends on your market and product. And knowledge of your product line. It helps if you are really passionate about what you sell. there are a number of online venues from etsy ebay rubylane, dowalla, zibbet, artfire to name a few. Plus you can have your own site, blog and other things to cross market. I sell a tangible Item that I have a passion for. It started as a hobby that went out of control. I design Jewelry as a creative hobby starting back in 05.As I grew more confident and found my own styles, , I made more and more items. ( I also got better supplies $$$ over the years) Then I lost my job and I had to sell the old hobby stuff off. I started making profits and found out I had good ideas. I donate some to Veterans hospitals for their "christmas Shopping at the holidays" since they cant run to the mall for their girlfriends or spouses. That is very rewarding. I get shown in Art Galleries, I teach classes, I do private parties, classes for senior citizens and so on. I m branching out to Learning annexes later. Most of this is to stay busy and serve others as the Lord woud have me. I donate a portion of sales to the womens shelter as well, and I donate to auctions for cancer survivors, for abused kids, anything that I feel like and to the center for women who have lost everything running with stuff on their back. there is something comforting about making something beautiful that is worn or given out of love that is worn close to the skin of person. and that God has seen fit to give me a gift of art to pass that on to others is awesome. I also sell other items that help that end of the business. ( my friends are suppliers as well) Sales can top5-6k a month for some of them. I have to stay under a limit myself. If I had no limit ,it would be outrageous the money to be made.,especially at the hours I chose to work and flexibility to see docs, rest when needed , vacation for hospital stays etc. On disability you can only earn 1000. a month including costs and product, (we can take no schedule C) but if you ran it as a biz like my mom, who works part time, she can make 40k a year. its all about finding a niche. and she doesnt even market or promote as much as I beg her too! I have all the social and media networks as well as catalogs, portfolios and marketing stuff so I can do big bucks in a week and take off for 3 weeks. Its up to you. I definitely recommend it. I wouldnt recommend working for anyone or paying someone to teach you how to do it. heck pay me 20 bucks and I ll tell you how too LOL. Its all in how you can work your brain around marketing, cross marketing and how fast you can think on your feet when meeting new people to get them build your biz with you, finding wholesale customers as wel as retail. ( repeat customers, referral programs, etc) You just have to have the time to do it. Figure 40-50 hours a week to do really well. I used to do that, until I got so sick. I have to say, that extra little bit helps me stay fed some months, mainly helps me feel productive since I ve worked since I was 14 years old and sitting around eating bon bons AINT for this chick.
  21. edited cus its too late for the answer. Nothing to see, move along...
  22. that last part is exactly what I am struggling to frame an answer with. I actually have the wording sez you. hehe. I know that has to change LOL I see the Legal aid attny wed morning, so I am writing this one on my list of questions...
  23. think of it this way.. you took me to court cus you lent me money and I signed a contract. you would have that info and contract when you went to court ,right? You wouldnt rely upon me to produce it.. Cus all I have to say is I didnt have a loan, there is no contract between us, I d like to see this alledged contract. well these JDB supposedly * but they dont*has a contract that came from another guy that came from another guy... and so on. and along the way pieces of papers fell out. ( actually, the days of big fat files per clients are gone. I doubt the Credit card people have a file like our doctors do with all of our info in it) So the JDB has to open the file and show the Judge here is my proof Empowerme owes me. well, JDB doesnt have it. So they want you to prove their case for them. So that is why you dont admit ANYTHING except my name is empowerme. I didnt have an agreement with JDB. I dont know debt JDB is talking about, I see know Proof of JDB. I dont owe anything based on _______________ case citation. ( I m prolly simplifying it)
