So I just got back from court with ceeeyeare and they had nothing (IMO)— no original document, no witness...just his tablet with some images of letters with my address on them that he said were proof that I was making payments on that account (I asked him if he had the actual letters and he said he didn’t need them, that “that’s not how it works”. I told him, unless he has original docs, that we had nothing more to discuss. This all happened before the actual trial, btw. Anywho, by the time the trial actually got underway, he started by asking the judge for an extension due to the fact that his witness could not make it...the judge granted that request EVEN AFTER asking if there was any explaination as to why the witness was a no-show with the lawyer unable to offer ANY reason whatsoever. Am I wrong in assuming this is all BS on the lawyer’s behalf? That he has NO proof that I owe this debt? I digress... at that point I asked the judge for a dismissal on the grounds of insuffient evidence on the plaintiffs part but the judge shot me down and I agreed to a new date in late July. I think I should have probably asked if it was possible (or demanded) to just continue the trial right then and there but I didn’t think to do so, at the time unfortunately. Does anybody have any thoughts on how this went down or what I should do or expect the next time out? I appreciate any input...thanks all!?
Hello, I am currently sued by OC in CA and the trial date is in June 2017. A couple days ago, Plaintiff sent me demand for expert trail witness information (2034.210) and demand for production of expert reports and writings (2034.210c) The weird thing is the Plaintiff demands that they want to meet up in their office in two weeks at a specific time in person to exchange information concerning trial expert witnesses. Here are my questions: 1. Do I have to respond to these demands? I don't have a designated expert witness for trial so I have no information to give to them. 2. Per 2034.260, "The exchange of information may occur at a meeting of the attorneys for the parties involved or by a mailing on or before the date of exchange." Does that mean I don't have to go to their office at that specific time and instead, just mail my response? I don't have time to drive up there in the middle of the day to their office and I honestly don't see the point of meeting in person when we can just exchange the information in writing. 3. Do these demands count as CCP 96 since we have to disclose our expert witnesses or should I still send out CCP 96 later? 4. If I end up mailing my response, will they mail me their information as well or they will just claim that they didn't have to mail me since I didn't show up to their office as they demanded. Any help or tips would be appreciated it. I have been scrolling through the topics in this forum but I feel like this is a rare move made by the Plaintiff so I am not sure what to do with these demands. Thank you,
Hi, I filed my subpoena and its in the hands of the process server. Do I have to also answer the Plaintiffs Request for witness and evidence or is the subpoena enough. Or should I answer the plaintiffs request and attach the subppoena. The 20 day window for me to answer the plaintiffs request is on Feb 13, 2015. Well just heard from my process server and the affiant was PERSONALLY SERVED at the address listed on the CCP98. NOW WHAT?????
I have trial in a few weeks and just want to know from those that have gone to trial with Cavalry (or any JDB) what your experiences have been.
