HI..yet another question.... The complaint filed by the JBD Plaintiff had two credit card statements attached. Nothing is verified and no affidavit of any kind in complaint. How do I get those thrown out so they cant be used against me? Waht are the evidence rules? Can they just attach those and the attachmnet is assumed to be true? How do I challenge those? Thanks,
Bill of Particulars
SoStressed posted a topic in Is There a Lawyer in the HouseHi..I need help clarifying my next step. I'm being sued on account stated and open book account. I sent the Plaintiff a BOP, and the lawyer returned it stating it was not appropriate because of account stated. They are also stating "open book account" as a cause of action against me. Legally, arent they needing to fill out the BOP for the open book account claim? What she did include "in the spirit of Discovery" was Affidavit of sale of account by original creditor (not specific to my alleged account), credit card agreement (generic, no dates or account numbers), and account statements from closing date onward. From what I've read BOP does not count toward Discovery questions. Since I can only have 35 questions total in discovery for my Interrogatories, Request for Documents and Admissions- How do I get this info from them so It doesnt count towards Discovery? And How does what she did send me factor in? Do I assume what she sent me is the only copy or version of what they have? Meaning, should I assume they dont have a Bill of Sale that is tied to my alleged account to prove legal standing? Or does that not matter in So. California? thank you!

Last minute BOP
bp306 posted a topic in Is There a Lawyer in the HouseI just recently sent a last minute BOP (7/26/13 they received 7/30/13) and received a response of "Our Office received your Demand for Bill of Particulars dated July 26, 2013. Per CCP 2024.40(a), your request is untimely and therefore no response will be provided . Please note, Plaintiff did supply 117 pages of billing statements in response for your request for production of documents on November 30, 2012. " I am sending them a meet and confer notice stating " On July 26th, 2013, Defendant served its request for a Bill of Particulars on Plaintiff. Pursuant to CCP section 454, Plaintiff has ten days to respond or it will "be precluded from giving evidence thereof. " As described below, plaintiffs’ response is entirely deficient. Plaintiff has not provided an itemization of the account showing all items and details of the account on which the cause of action for unjust enrichment by goods sold and delivered, money had and received, and /or money lent or paid of plaintiff’s complaint is based, including the date of each transaction, a description of the services, materials or goods supplied or other considerations rendered, the price or charge made for each item, and all payments or credits that have been made to the account including details of interest calculation or fees charged at issue in this litigation. Such basic information is required to prove plaintiff’s claim. Plaintiff should have such information readily at hand. If not, it is difficult to understand how plaintiff acquired a good faith basis to file the lawsuit. Please serve a full response on or before August 9, 2013. If Plaintiff fails to do so, Defendant will move the Court for an order requiring a further response or, in the alternative, an order-precluding Plaintiff from offering any such evidence at trial." Problem is that my trial date is August 12, 2013. Background of my case is as follows: 1. Who is the named plaintiff in the suit? Capital One Bank (USA), N.A. 2. What is the name of the law firm handling the suit? (should be listed at the top of the complaint.) Michael Boulanger, ESQ Law Offices of Patenaude & Felix, A.P.C. 3. How much are you being sued for? $2882.29 4. Cause of Action: Common Counts " because an account was stated in action between plantiff and defendant in which it was agreed that defendant was indebted to plaintiff." "This cause of action is based upon account number XXX for the sum by which Defendant has been unjustly enriched by virtue of Defendant and/or accepting benefits bestowed. It is inequitable for defendant to retain said benefits without repaying Plaintiff the value thereof." 5. How do you know you are being sued? (You were served, right?) Serviced at my front door 6. How were you served? (Mail, In person, Notice on door) In Person 7. Was the service legal as required by your state? Yes 8. What was your correspondence (if any) with the people suing you before you think you were being sued? They may have sent notice however I was in the process of changing addresses and do not recall a letter, received summons at new address. 9. What state and county do you live in? San Joaquin County, CA 10. When is the last time you paid on this account? (looking to establish if you are outside of the statute of limitations) 7/4/2011 11. What is the SOL on the debt? 4 years 12. What is the status of your case? Suit served? Motions filed? You can find this by a) calling the court or looking it up online (many states have this information posted - when you find the online court site, search by case number or your name). Court date for 8/12/13 at Superior Court of CA, County of San Joaquin I filed/sent an Answer, Request for production of documents (12 Items) which they sent Credit card statements back to Aug 2008 (it had a beg bal of $2,642.92 at that time) and a Customer Agreement Copyrighted 2010, Case Management Statement (12/3/12), Bill of Particulars (7/26/13), going to send Meet & Confer (8/5/2013), I have not a trial brief. They Sent Summons 5/11/12, CMS, Production of Docs 11/30/12, Meet & Confer 7/30/13 (regarding BOP), Trial Notice 7/8/13. Need advice on Filing motion to Precluding Plaintiff from offering any such evidence at trial (not sure if filing it on 8/9/13 is ok), Also trial prep and defenses for account stated.
