Start To Finish Winning Against Midland Funding Aka Jdb!


Recommended Posts

Came across this forum last night and saw this topic about Midland. Hopefully someone can give me some insight what I should do. It seems a case was filed on 12/13/2015 against me by Midland through their attorney HUNT & HENRIQUES - JANALIE HENRIQUES.  And an OSC HEARING IS SET FOR 11/28/18. That's almost three years from the filing date. The hearing is to show why sanctions should not be imposed for failure to file proof of service and failure to file default judgment.  I never received the summons and it shows on 12/31/2015 that it was returned not found/no service.  What can I do? I never received the summons. And I live in a different county.  I only knew about this when I went to visit my mom and she gave me this yellow document from a company offering to settle this case. I looked up the case and found this. Any help would be appreciated.

This thread has been so helpful. I am hoping that someone will respond since it looks like it was back in 2009 when it was created. I'm currently going back and forth with Midland right now. I received the summon and then in turn, I filed my answer and prodution letter with the court. It was certified mailed. Right before their 30 day mark approaching (which would be the 14th of June), I received the "motion for extending time." I contacted the court to confirm if the extension was approved and of course, it was. 

My question is, should I reply to this letter? Is there any specific letter template to use to respond to them? Thank you for all the great information! This thread has been extremely helpful!

If the court already approved the extension, what would be the purpose of responding to the letter?

I filed a Memorandum Opposing Motion for Summary Judgment vs MIDLAND and they didn't file a Reply or Submit for Decision. 

Time passed, my Memorandum was filed in August. 

So... weird. 

They had been very shady during this entire case.  In April they send me Motion for Summary Judgment with all attachments and Affidavits, with certificates that this is true and exact copy of what they filed with court. I responded with Memorandum Opposing.  And that was it. Nothing. So before going on vacation I send them a letter, telling them I will be out of country for a month, so would not be available for court hearings and etc. They file a motion for Summary Judgment right after I left. If I would not have left instructions to open everything that comes from these crooks, the time to respond to a Motion would be long passed before I would be back to USA.. I guess they were counting on me not Opposing and not showing up in court because I told them I will be out of the country. 

This motion was completely different from the first motion for summary judgment. 

I filed for extension of time over email and received it. Then I was rereading first motion and thought,  what if I ask a judge to rule in the first motion and maybe this law suit will be over, because their first motion didn't stand a chance. So, I send to court Request to Submit for Decision and write in email to the clerk that this is regarding first motion for summary judgment,  filed by Plaintiff in April. She didn't respond,  so I wait and then ask her again.  So she sends me a case docket and highlights that THERE WAS NO MOTION FIR SUMMARY JUDGMENT in April!

Looks like they either pretended to file to see if I responded and learn my defense strategy or they changed their mind about filing.

Before responding to this Motion for Summary Judgment, I made sure it was filed! 

Anyway. It is weird there is no movement.  And now I am wondering if I should file Motion to Dismiss. 

Can someone help me to find out if I have grounds to file Motion to Dismiss?

Thanks for sharing, I feel a lawsuit from MCM heading my way, I will be checking that they actually filed what they say they filed. 

Any advice or thoughts for my situation?

Why do you think a lawsuit heading your way, did they serve you summons? Is it s new case?

I would go back to the top of the forum and start your own thread. This one is really old and may not get the attention you deserve.

I found this on motions in Utah Courts:

Request to Submit for Decision

The motion will not be given to the judge to decide until one of the parties completes and files a Request to Submit for Decision. Either party may file a Request to Submit for Decision, but someone must do so. If one party files a Request to Submit for Decision, the other party does not.

Do not file the Request to Submit for Decision until the Reply Memorandum Supporting Motion has been filed or until after the time for filing a Reply has expired. If there is no Memorandum Opposing the Motion, then file the Request to Submit for Decision after the time for filing the opposing memorandum has expired. You may request a hearing as part of the Request to Submit for Decision. A Request to Submit for Decision must be filed even if the parties stipulate to the motion.

See the chart below for timeframes.

Hearing

If you want to present oral arguments as well as written arguments to the judge, you have to request a hearing.

If a ruling on the motion might dispose of the case, like a motion for summary judgment, then the court usually will hold a hearing if at least one of the parties requests one. If a ruling on the motion would not dispose of the case, then the judge can decide the motion based on the documents without a hearing, even if the parties have requested one. The judge can order a hearing even if neither party requests one. If one party requests a hearing and the other party does not, both parties are still allowed an opportunity to present oral arguments, if a hearing is held.

The party requesting the hearing schedules the hearing with the judge's staff. Courtesy allows that the requesting party will schedule the hearing on a date and time convenient to all parties and the court.

Thank you for a suggestion, I think I will do exactly that.. Yes, I know I can Request for Decision myself,  I just don't know why they don't do it! And if I can ask to Dismiss a case because they send me certified statement saying that they filed Motion for Summary Judgment when they didn't!

I suspect Courts in Utah are busy and waiting is hard to do in these cases. Additionally it's best you don't file a Request for Decision yourself as it may accelerate the process. Meanwhile I would go to the Courts website and find your casefile on the docket and see if a MSJ is confirmed as filed. You can also call and talk to the Court Clerk and ask.  If a MSJ is filed you have a limited amount of days to respond and file your reply and supporting memorandum of points and authorities. If not, you can use the time to research and compile your Reply with Memorandum of Support. I believe their is a template above on this post.  If you post a redacted copy of the MSJ we can help you reply if you need help. Also check the courts rules of procedure. Just make sure you get your opposing memorandum filed timely. See below.

"Do not file the Request to Submit for Decision until the Reply Memorandum Supporting Motion has been filed or until after the time for filing a Reply has expired. If there is no Memorandum Opposing the Motion, then file the Request to Submit for Decision after the time for filing the opposing memorandum has expired. You may request a hearing as part of the Request to Submit for Decision.
