My husband has JP court tomorrow in Texas to defend himself in a lawsuit. He was served with the Plaintiff's Original Petition and attached is one statement showing the balance, previous balance, late fee and interest charged. Filed a General Denial and there has been no discovery or contact from Midland Funding. He is due in court tomorrow morning and I have researched this forum and am aware of the defenses of proof a valid contract exists, proof of standing (ownership/assignment), proof that the claim is not barred by the statute of limitations. However not sure how things will proceed in court. Prepared to object to any documents they try to admit to the court. Can someone tell me how the court proceedings in the JP Court goes and if he will need to state his defense in the beginning. He is being sued on Breach of Contract and Account Stated and I have researched this as well. If anyone in Texas could provide more detail as to what will happen in the JP Court and what to expect. Thank you.
