  1. Hi everyone! First-timer here. So, first of all, thank you all in advance for any feedback/advice! It seems that Cavalry has sued more than enough people. I haven’t been served yet, but know they’ve filed a claim. Claim is for a credit card debt around $8K From what I am reading, arbitration is the best route to go for this. In the statement of claim, they listed an account statement, bill of sale, and they are saying that I am indebted to them for the debt. Citi has sold the debt to them. At this point, I’m thinking that verification is enough to support their claim to file. However, I’m seeing that they are not a fan of arbitration. Any advice on where I should start? I have not been served yet, but want to respond timely.

Should I call cavarly and try to negoiate down the amount? How much do you think they would do? Or should I just answer the complaint asking for more proof ? How would I go about that? Thanks so much! What are the consequences of filing an answer forcing them to prove their case? or filing a motion to dismiss on lack of standing? Will i end up paying a lot more? will it hurt my credit? Should I just call and try to negotiate? how should I approach the negotiations: starting offer? Like this
  3. Ok. So I got served with a summons for a lawsuit by American Express Centurion Bank. I retained a lawyer because there is no way I'm comfortable going pro se. But at the same time, I want to know what's involved with the process and what would be the best possible defenses. ***will update as I progress***
  4. Hello All - Anyway ever have a Bank fail to submit an Affidavit in the Complaint and Motion for Summary Judgement and then just magically produce a new one dated that week and served that day to Defendent in Court? I did. I have been watching this forum for help as I have decided to fight BIG BANK Discover over a credit card debt. I think I have zeroed in on something but need some case law. 1) They filed the Complaint in October, 2014 using an account stated theory with 1 statement attached for a 10 year account. 2) I filed an answer but not an affidavit. I didn't know that I needed to. But I did find some case law disputing that, but the REAL gangbuster is they neither did they. 3) Then they moved for Sumary Disposition, and I responded with genuine issues of material fact, but in the Motion, they explicitly said twice that they had properly filed and Affidavit to the Complaint and that it was also attached to this Motion. Yet, their exhibit summary did not contain it listed and it wasn't there. 4) The Judge offered them two weeks, and the lawyer shot back one. This was on a Friday when on that next Monday both Michigan and Ohio were shut down, including Courts due to a blizzard. The next Friday was the new hearing. I amended my Response with more time and served them on Wednedsay. On Thursday I went to the court to see if they filed anything yet, and they had filed an Affadavit DATED that previous Monday February 2nd, 2015 not October 2014 when they filed the Complaint. It was the standard Robo Affidavit where Discover Bank has its factory in Franklin Ohio by an Abigail Paton of Discover Financial Products (4 entities removed from Discover Financial Services with which the alleged contract was made). I googled and saw Ms. Patton has signed Affidavits as far away as SanDiego. 5) I prepared a Motion to strike that night. Plaintiffs waited to serve me until the actual hearing, and I served them back my pre-paid Motion. Their lawyer got out his law book and started fliiping through it. I asked the Judge to Move to Strike, and he said he would Strike but then asked the Plaintiff if they would just re-file again and he said yes, so the judge changed his mind and said he would give me more time. I said I didn't need it but he seemed like he wanted my motion in writing. I pointed out that the affidavit they neglected to submit with the Complaint affected their account stated theory, and they have failed to produce 4 years of statements, an orginal agreement with terms on it, so there is no way to determine the amount. The six years I did get had 2 purchases totoalling $700 yet I paid $15,000 (or 1700% interest) as far as what they could prove. He "gave me" 2 more weeks but their lawyer was too busy so it ended up being six weeks. QUESTION: Can the Bank claim they filed an affidavit with a Complaint dated in October 2014 and then again in a January 2015 Motion to dismiss and then when compelled to produce the Affidavit because I showed up (unlike 90% who don't bother) and produce an Affidavit dated the next business day (Monday - blizzard Day) 2015 and use it like it just fell behind a file cabinet and they found it? That would certainly make it cheaper for Banks to eliminate the paperwork until someone demands it. You can't swear in legal proceedings that you did something - have someone with knowledge review your records (even though sehe failed to attach them as required) before filing the Complaint, and wait unti the second hearing for a Summay Disposition to creat a new Affidavit. I know there is a problem there, but can't find the Michigan law or case law to cite for the next hearing. Please help - you scholare are fabulous!
  5. I need to file an answer Monday. Plaintiff is Cavalry SPV I as assignee of FIA Card. The complaint reads as follows: 1. The Plaintiff claims the defendant owes the plaintiff of $4578.04 because: Prin: $4,578.04 Int: $0 AF:$, Total $4,578.04. open account 14-02021-0 The plaintiff also claims from the defendant court costs in the sum of $299.99. That's all that is in the complaint. My records show the last payment to BOA was in Dec 2010 so they are outside the SOL as the complaint is dated 4/07/14, yes? Will a general denial and an affirmative defense of SOL suffice or should I still request full documentation in my answer? Also, am I wrong in thinking this is complaint is lacking? Is this one of those filing where they are assuming I won't answer or appear?
