Answered, Now What?

Recommended Posts

My wife was sued by a LVNV company about 5 months ago, and I made an answer and a $35k counter-claim. I have not heard anything what so ever since. I expected atleast a call from there lawyer. What next? A motion for summery judgement? A motion for dismissal?

I want to get this over with and didn't expect it to go so long after my answer(frankly it was a stupid answer to a stupid company, but hey, it has been 6 years and may be time barred.)

Any help out there?

If they didn't answer your counterclaim go get a default on your counterclaim. You'll still have to deal with their initial claim if they ever move forward with the suit.

If you can get a default it is huge leverage. They will try to file some BS motion to vacate later and an attorney will fall on his sword and pay some small sanction, but if you get the default they may be willing to just drop the entire action altogether.
