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. The Petition provided a generalized credit card agreement between "defendants" and "plaintiff", however there are no account numbers, no signatures of omission from defendants. or any documents provided. Does this mean they may or may not have access to more definitive information, proving their case? I have already typed up the answer to the Plaintiff's original petition, addressing each paragraph. Any and all advice is greatly appreciated. I have a little over a week before I have to respond to the Plaintiff's petition.
Helping a friend fight a cache case: I vaguely remember something from back when my case was fought (and won) that changed in California on January 1st 2015, didn't apply because my case was filed in December of 2014, so I don't completely remember. Here's where we are: Cache filed, friends answered AND sent first request for docs. The answer they received yesterday stated "Cache is still preparing the case for trial and does not have the necessary information to answer at this time....on ALL questions. They then sent a statement from over a year ago from a different collection company. If I remember correctly this is enough to request dismissal, BUT I don't remember which law it is that makes this so. Anyone?
I will admit. My credit isn't perfect. I've recently been doing some research on the topic and discovered that credit bureaus specifically prohibit credit repair companies to run a credit check on their clients. Does anybody know why?
