Sued by a Debt Collector - Learn How to Fight Debt Lawsuits

 

I have read through like threads for months and have learned and understood much of how to respond to most of this req for info however, I need assistance responding to some specific items.

 

I did post a question a couple of days ago but it was under a similar thread and no one answered it so I thought I better just open my own thread at this point.

 

Here are some questions I am having difficulty with: REQUEST FOR ADMISSION OF FACTS AND NON UNIFORM INTERROGATORIES

 

10. Admit that Plaintiff is the successor in interest to wells fargo bank with regard to the credit card acct #XXX.  See Bill of Sale attached hereto as Exhibit C and incorporated herein by reference

 

11. Admit that plaintiff as successor in interest to wells fardo bank is owed at least 9k pursuant to the bill of sale, which is attached hereto as Exhibit C and incorporated herein by reference.

 

and then the following questions on same Request:

 

15. admit the original creditors credit card acct appear on Transunion credit bureau.  See copy of your credit bureau attached hereto as Exhibit D

 

16. Admit that you never disputed this acct with any of the three major credit reporting agencies.

 

17. admit that you have provided Plaintiff with no doc supporting any affirmative defense against the Plaintiff complaint in this action.

 

OK, so 10 and 11 refer to the bill of sale that looks like it was copied a hundred times with no ref to acct in question except as an Exhibit A.

 

I already plan to file a motion to strike this from being admitted as evidence from what I have read about it's being heresay.   But I am not sure how to word it properly, all I have written is that I have filed motion to strike this.  Is this all I need to say?  do I file this same day I take my responses to court clerk to file that?

 

As for the other questions, no I didnt check or dispute my credit report for this because I didnt know it was there and as a knucklehead dont check my credit report as often as I should, apparently. :(  so can anyone help me with how I should respond to these questions?   

 

I've been working on this thing for weeks and now I'm getting incoherent and will probably pass out  very soon from lack of fresh air.  Some one please help?

 

(ps if anyone needs to see any of the docs I can attach just let me know what you need to see)

You can't file a motion to strike this; you have to answer each and every item with "Admit", "Deny" or "Objection" with a brief explanation of why you are objecting.

 

Can you post the exact wording of the bill of sale?

thank you racecar and texasrocker for answering above!  

 

I'm wondering now if this is just done in AZ but as I have looked around this site I have never seen anything regarding or about  Non uniform  interrogatories..  can I get your insight as far as these go?

 

...the questions are kind of similar to the admissions but not quite.. should I just answer them the same?  Some are different tho......

 

 

1. state name address and date of birth and ssn for each person answering this interrogatories. (I believe this is private info?)

 

 

2.provide each and every address you used in past 5 years. (private info?)

 

       a. with respect for address above provide dates you were at each address.(respond same as above?)

 

3.set forth in detail each and every payment you made to wells fargo and date of each payment and cancelled checks

 

 

        a. if you are unable to provide answers to #3 provide specific reasons why not and the grounds therefore.

 

        b. if you are unable to provide answers to #3 but nevertheless did make payments to Plaintiff (Cach LLc, I believe they mean)   please state method of payment.

 

 

                    i. if payments were made from a bank acct provide all bank names and account numbers (the above 3 I have no knowledge of - should I just state this?)

 

.

4.please state name address and short summary of the testimony of each witness you intend to call at trial (I dont have any - should i just state private information?

 

 

5.provide the bank names and acct numbers for bank accounts held in your name or used by you from oct through Jan 2012 (I stated objection, that this was overly burdensome info to provide)

 

6.set forth in detail a complete list of all exhibits which you intend to introduce at trial (since i have no exhibits do I just say none?)

 

 

7.set forth the names and addresses phone numbers curriculum and a detailed report or statement as to the testimony of any expert witness you intend to call at trial. (private and privileged information?)

 

 

8.set forth in detail all facts which support any affirmative defenses which have you have asserted   (are the defenses part of what I send back in the request for their documents? can you help me word that??

 

 

         a identify any and all persons or entities who have information which may support such facts (should I still say objection this is private and privileged info?)

 

 

         b identify any and all documents which may support any such facts  (not sure how to answer this - I do not have anything about this credit card)

 

 

9. as to each denial in you Answer to Plaintiffs Complaint, state all facts upon which you base the denial.   ( how can I word this?)

 

 

10. Why did you fail to make the payments to Plaintiff under the Customer Agreement?  (Note definition number 2)  Again, I am stating that I had no knowledge of said credit card in the first place)

 

 

 

Do I HAVE to do all my answers on pleading paper?   hmmmmmm i guess I will -just saw another post about this..... 

 

Any help would be appreciated by you all.   thanks so much....

 

 

and by the way for texasrocker above, as far as motion to strike the bill of sale:  So I should NOT file this with my paperwork?

thanks again

You don't file any motions now, that is way later.  The bill of sale is inadmissible garbage even without any motions filed- if and when the time comes you basically just need to object to it.  They have already set themselves up to get slammed in discovery by the wording of it.  At this time you need to delve into and familiarize yourself with Arizona procedures & rules and the court's rules and get your answers in before the deadline.  Someone in Arizona or knowledgeable of Arizona procedure should step forward to assist you.  

 

For starters deny anything pertaining to the account, object to anything personal other than your name and address, and for the ones asking about future intentions at trial just say, "None at this time."

Hi from Az Just saw this post. The things they are sending now are crazy.  However I will find a good post from Az for you to look at. You do not file any motions now in the discovery phase. You have 40 days after your answer to complete this. After you get the answers done to the stuff they sent you, you need to send them your RPD and RFA.  How long do you have to get these answered??

hey thanks for the response (big sigh)!

 

I have until august 12 to respond.   I completed the response to production of docs (response mainly unaware of any such doc...) and the response for admissions and non uniform interrogatories, and response to another set of non uniform interrogatories.  (Denied for most part and gave no information which I don't have anyway except for name and address)  Did all that on pleading paper and now.....

 

I am typing out the "definitions" for the RPD and RFA to be directed to them and will be writing out the questions that follow.  

 

 

?  should i use their same definitions?

 

?  Do I send these out the same day that I file my answers on august 12?

 

thanks again!

If you can find the post under Sued Pima County  look at Bruno's 12 requests for Production of Documents. Also ABCand123 has some good answers to request for documents.  And Bravoflaco as well. I refer you to them because they never sent me any of this stuff. I was lucky I got to skip all these questions. The requests in the discovery part are sent between the parties. I would send your answers to theirs seperate from your requests to them. I would get your responses off ASAP.  I would wait until like 6 days before the deadline to mail your requests off. LOL

Always send them CMRRR and keep the green cards and P>O> receipts to get your costs back. I also write a sticky note on the card what I mailed so I did not get confused.

 

Also forgot to ask you. After you filed your answer you did file a disclosure form with the court right?? You have 40 days after filing the answer to file the Defendan't disclosure form with the court and send a copy to opposing party. AZ Rule 26.1

thank you again,...!!!

 

. um... in answer to your question about the disclosure form I think I did  - I did the answer and then I filed another thing which I think was disclosure - I have everything.. I just cant find it at this moment.   And I do have 2 green post cards so far.  

 

ok so I am going to read the above right now.   TIme is getting short so ahhhhhh.    I  have to send my response back before the 12th but do I also have to go back to the courthouse again to file my stuff to them after but before the 12th?  

 

I was hoping to do it all on the same day.   ? :)

Yes as it is due by the 12th send it on the same day but mail in different envelopes. Did you check to see if you mailed them Defendant's Diclosure Statement?? This has to be time stamped at the court and mailed to them within 40 days of filing your answer.  I go the form(pleading paper) at the court filled it out there , mailed off.

 

It says something like this:

Instructions:

The Arizona Rules of Civil Procedure require that each party share with the other party all information known etc.....

1. What are the facts supporting the claim

2. A description of the damages and copies of exhibits etc.......

3 What law supports your claim

4.List of Witnesses

5. List of Documents and Other Information

 

Did you fill a form like this out??

yes I did the disclosure and in time, I should have remembered because that day I about lost it (little did I know that was nothing compared to later)

 

 I found all my paperwork and its all in the order it was processed w notes and everything. 

 

I am completing my requests for the plaintiff and using their wording and format for the "definitions" part and the short blurb before that regarding responding in certain time frame and the "Instructions for use"  right after that.  That's a lot of typing but I'll be working on it in the next several hours.   THAT DOES ALL HAVE TO BE DONE RIGHT?

 

Thank you for your responses so far!!   This is the 2nd day of my "weekend" and I have to get this done today to drop off Thursday tomorrow.   Saving Friday for emergency if case I have to change anything before I go to the courthouse to file (and in separate envelopes - yes I was going to make sure it was all separate!  :)   

 

I will probably have some questions in a little while after I get all this typing done and go over everything.......

 

thanks again...

Here's the preamble -  just to show you what was sent and everything (looks like a lot of overkill to me and I also found 5 typos... just thought I'd mention that as an aside.. hmm..humph)

The Justice Court Rules of Civil Procedure allow a party to request from another party up to ten (10)

records are usually kept.
 
   You must provide your original response to requests under this rule to the party who sent them to you, and 
 
you must provide a copy to every other party in the lawsuit.  Your responses to requests made under this

summons and complaint, in which case your response is due within sixly (60) days after the date of service, 
 
or unless ordered by the courts.  If you do not comply with the requests that have been made in this notice, 
 
the party who served them may file a motion asking that the court order you to comply.  If the court enters 
 
that order, the court may also require you to pay expenses, including reasonable attorney‘s fees, 
 
incurred by the other party in obtaining the order.  If you fail to comply with this order, the other party may 
 
ask the court to impose additional pentalites against you, including:  that you may not introduce evidence of 
 
some or all of your claims or defenses this lawsuit; if you are a plaintiff, that yhour lawauit be dismissed; or 
 
if you are a defendant, that judgement be entered against you by default.

       a. with respect for address above provide dates you were at each address.(respond same as above?)

3.set forth in detail each and every payment you made to wells fargo and date of each payment and cancelled checks

        a. if you are unable to provide answers to #3 provide specific reasons why not and the grounds therefore.

ok thank you, got it.   Really have gotten better in the last week with understanding the legal wording...

 

As far as the format goes should I also use the form they used regarding the Notice of Service ("introducing" my request  for rpds and the rfas and also the Notice of Service of Defendants first supplemental Disclosure Statement which is the first sheet introducing everything following?

 

I am kind of mirroring what they sent me.....?

If you're referring to the court header, in my state, everything has the court header:  party names, case number, etc.  I think that if you mirror what they did, you should be fine.  That being said, be sure to read your court rules.

Hello!   I just files my responses and my requests yesterday and the lady at the desk who filed them for me asked if I had filled out a motion to set and certificate of readiness.

 

Well, I didnt, I am sure.   How do I fill that out and I should I do that right away??

 

 

It's always something to make me crazy that I already am... and that's a lot.   Please help?

The responses to what they sent you in discovery and what you send to them in discovery is not filed with the court but only mailed tp the atty. I'm so sorry I should have told you that.  The clerk must have been new because I have not a clue what she was asking you for. Did you mail the stuff to the atty??/ You don't have to do anything else in this discovery phase now since you filed your Disclosure form with the court and other party you are good until they set the pre-trial conference.

Have you filed an answer?

Were you served by a person handing you the papers at the front door? Your post doesn't clarify. Merely leaving papers "at the front door" without someone having answered the door is not sufficient.

UPDATE: Never mind, I see that you answered. If you had any service defenses they've probably been waived.

Also, here's the rule that applies in computing your time to respond to discovery requests:

"The party upon whom the interrogatories have been served shall serve a copy of the answers, and objections if any, within 40 days after the service of the interrogatories, except that a defendant may serve answers or objections within 60 days after service of the summons and complaint upon that defendant, or execution of a waiver of service, by that defendant. The court may allow a shorter or longer time. The party submitting the interrogatories may move for an order under Rule 37(a) with respect to any objection to or other failure to answer an interrogatory."

ok, wow, I have filed everything with the court from the beginning and the clerk this last time looked at our filings and said this case was really dragging on.   I asked what she meant and she said that usually these cases are already done and over with in a couple of months.   I'm like really? okaaaay..

 

Anyway, I did mail 2 copies to the atty and also 2 copies of my requests to them before aug 12 so I guess I am just waiting now for them to send something back now?   

 

I am on my "weekend" time now and have finally been able to relax a little - is there any thing I should be preparing or getting ready for now?   

 

Thanks for all the assistance!!
