I'm in Los Angeles County and recently had a summons left in the general mail box for our apartment building. I'm being sued by Hunt & Henriques and before I start filing my General Denial papers, I wanted to see if there are other angles I should use based on how the summons was (not really) delivered. First off, the date that it was filed with the court was April 1st. The summons was not discovered in the apartment mailbox until April 14th. It says I have 30 days to file a written response "after this summons and legal papers are served on you". How do they know if and when I even served if it was just left in the apartments junk mail box? On top of that, it did not have my full name or apartment number. I am a "JR", and in apartment # 2. My father, who is "SR", is in apartment # 1. There was no "JR" or "SR" on the summons, and there was no apartment number. So given the situation, the summons could just as easily be for my father. (Maybe I should have my father reply to the summons and say the debt is not his?!? Just kidding... unless that would work!) Considering how sloppy this summons was served, does that create any opportunities/advantages I should utilized in order to make beating this lawsuit a little easier? Any advice is greatly appreciated!!! Sincerely, John in LA
