I need some help on next steps in Discovery phase of lawsuit. Here's a snapshot of where things are at: April 2014: Via Pocket Docket in Minnesota, was served by Gurstel Chargo, representing Autovest as JDB for Wells Fargo Financial on Consumer Debt. With interest it's around 25k. I responded within the 20 days required, basically said insufficient information to be able to admit or deny claims. Asked for plaintiff to prove claim. Requested lawsuit be dismissed, etc. May 2014: Gurstel sends robo letter to discuss discovery plan, gives settlement offer. Discovery plan states they will provide Required Disclosures on or before June 27, 2014 and proposes I do the same as soon as possible. I respond via certified mail by June 27 that basically I no longer have any documents. With regards to the Discovery Plan, I sent a revised plan that read: (1) Plaintiff and defendant (via attachment) will provide its 26.01(a) Required Disclosures on or before June 27, 2014. Plaintiff proposes Defendant provide his/her 26.01(a) Required Disclosures as soon as possible. Plaintiff and Defendant will respond to the discovery requests by July 27, 2014. So now it is July 9 and I haven't received anything from Gurstel. No discovery documents. Nothing. The SOL should be running out within a few months however I haven't been able to get the exact date verified from Wells Fargo. Here's my question: They never sent any type of Discovery so can't I get this officially dismissed? If so, how? What are my next steps? Help!
Can anyone help me with objecting to plaintiff's initial disclosures? Specifically, the form of the document, basically is it just a doc titled response to plaintiffs initial disclosures, followed by my, objection(s) to their request. Also, they attached billing statements and a B.O.S. Should I be objecting to these as well basically challenging their admissibility as evidence? How would I phrase the objection?
