Default Clerk Judgment Received (CA) guidance needed


Recommended Posts

Hi, all. Am in California. Having been out of town for several weeks related to work and am now in the middle of a move to another state.


Have been studying the forums thoroughly but am in a bit of a quandary as to how to proceed.


I responded to Kenosian & Miele within 30 days after being served. The response to my BOP demand was a Proof Of Service Of Notice To Consumer Or Employee And Ojection, along with a Deposition Subpoena For Production Of Business Records. These were received while I was away.


The date specified in the request to examine my records is this week. The Deposition Subpoena is on the same day, to be held at their offices in Los Angeles. (I'm in San Diego, where the suit has been filed.)


Also received while I was away, an Entry of Default document, dated the day after the court listed "Default Clerk Judgment Received" on its ROA.


Obviously, it's a time crunch. I'm thinking I should fire off a general denial to K&M so that they at least receive it, but not sure it would help at this point. Would really appreciate some guidance.


Here's specifics...

1A: BH Financial Services, LLC

3A: Over $10,000


4. Who is the original creditor? (if not the Plaintiff)


4A: Citibank

5A: Served summons


6. How were you served?


6A: Served in person


7. Was the service legal as required by your state?

14. Did you request debt validation before the suit was filed?


14A: No


15. How long do you have to respond to the suit? (This should be in your paperwork). We need to know what the "charges" are. Please post what they are claiming. Did you receive an interrogatory (questionnaire) regarding the lawsuit?


15A: 30 days; breach of contract and common counts; received no questionnaire


16. What evidence did they send with the summons? An affidavit? Statements from the OC? Contract? List anything else they attached as exhibits.
