I was served in Slidell, Louisiana November 2010 with a Petition in Suit on Open Account and served by the court with Precision Recovery Analytics as the Plaintiff. I had 10 days to answer the petition which I did and filed the petition with the courts a few days after being served. I also included my defenses to the petition and denied all allegations. The plaintiff is evidently a Junk Debt agency so I stated I had never heard of them and had no dealings with them. I also stated in my defenses that I had never entered into any contractual arrangement with them and that the plaintiff provided me with no reliable, credible, or admissible sworn statement or other evidence to the accuracy or validity of the debt. (I did a DV by certified mail 2 months prior to them filing suit and they sent me nothing). Periodically since that date I have received from the attorney that filed the suit, standard collection letters trying to collect on the debt (which I have kept). Now today I receive in the mail (NOT by certified mail) a letter from the attorney stating that enclosed is the Plaintiff's First Discovery Request and that I return my responses within the time delays allowed by law. This was not served by the court just regular mail. I assumed this case was over since I hadn't heard anything for almost 3 years now. My questions are as follows: 1. How long can a case just sit in limbo with the courts with nothing happening? I answered in November 2010 their questions on the petition and never heard a thing back from the courts. The clerk's office told me they would send the Plaintiff a copy of my Answer to their suit. 2. Do I need to answer this Discovery? Or is this a ploy to get my Social Security number, place of employment, etc. 3. In this Discovery they want me to give them copies of any documents received from GE Credit, copies of payment checks, etc. They should be supplying me with copies. I stated that in my Defenses in 2010. Any help would be deeply appreciated. I don't want to let this slip by and they receive a Judgment by Default for my failure to reply if necessary. I want to fight this case. Scratching my head in Louisiana!
