Team, I have a pending lawsuit from Barclays Bank Delaware (OC) here in Southern California. Lawfirm is Suttell & Hammer. What is discovery like for an OC lawsuit? I understand discovery for this is different from a JDB. What should I be doing different in this case? The things that I'm reading all point to- SETTLE. Not opposed to settling, but I have nothing in terms of a lump sum payment. How will that play out if this gets to a judge? I simply cannot pay. I can pay over time, like $100 a month. Is that even a position to negotiate? Thanks!
Case is aged over 500 days. Super slow going through the system. I've responded to summons and round of discovery/ request for admissions. Just recently received an "At Issue Memorandum". Looks like we're getting into the final rounds here. Any advice on how to respond to their "Memorandum"? Is it best to just respond with a Counter Memorandum saying discovery still to come?
After spending countless hours researching these forums, and hundreds of dollars for a ghost written response to the plaintiff's claim, the judge granted the motion for summary judgement at the hearing in favor of the plaintiff. I am still not certain what I did wrong, but my well crafted answers to the complaint were not even considered because I did not have an affidavit to support them. Entire hearing was over in 4 minutes. I clearly thought I was prepared to argue standing in court, but was not. Can anyone tell me exactly what I type of affidavit I needed in addition to my response that would have resulted in either a denial or at best in my favor? Hopefully it will help others going through this. Thanks.
