Affirmative claims

Recommended Posts

I am trying to answer the deemed admissions request from plaintiff and I am not sure about one of them.

1. You have no affirmative claims against the Plaintiff.

What does this mean? Does this mean I am not claiming any affirmative defenses that I listed in my Original Answer?

Thanks for your help.

It is possible that counterclaims refer to claims actually asserted and affirmative claims mean viable claims that are not asserted. In any event, make sure you leave yourself some wiggle room in case you discover a violation (i.e. Object on the ground that it calls for a legal concluision. defendant is not an attorney and defendant may be unaware that certain facts constitute a claim under applicable law.)
