  1. Can a defendant have a telephonic appearance doing a civil trial in justice court in Arizona
  2. OK. So I am the defendant in a debt collection lawsuit. I sent my verified interrogatories, affirmations and demand for documents along with proof of service. The empty envelope was returned to the "proof of service" person with a stamp claiming the envelope arrived empty. The empty envelope was obviously opened, because they taped it closed. I am 100% positive the envelope contained all docs and I was with my "proof of service" person when she mailed them at the post office. What do I do about this? I am dealing with Portfolio Recovery Associates LLC. Thanks for all help! Calico
  3. Hi all, I am asking for assistance as I do not know what I am doing. I am being sue for $3500 from midland funding over a debt that they purchased from a Barclaycard. I have tried to negotiate with them over the past week, but I only have 20 days to reply to the court with my answer regarding this case.

  4. I received a summons from a Credit Union I use to bank with, in Texas. The Petition states the Credit Union as the Plaintiff, as it has not been sold to a debt collector. I am being sued for an amount between $5,000 and $10,000 due to credit card debt. The petition states the Plaintiff intends to conduct discovery.

Does this mean they may or may not have access to more definit

  6. Hi, I'm being sued in California by a local debt collection lawfirm for $2,000 for relocation money paid to me, by my former employer 2 years ago. My initial contract stated I would be responsible for returning $2,000 in relocation money if I left the job in less than one year, and the money would be taken out of the wages owed to me at termination. If the balance is not enough, I needed to pay the remaining amount within 30 days of departure. I left after 10 months, and no money was deducted from my final payment at termination (which was about $4,000). The HR person in my exit interview
