JDb attonery sent me a letter saying they dimissed the case but nothing to the court


Recommended Posts

I got a letter from the JDB attonery saying they dropped the case. But they have filed nothing with the court. My trial is on weds. DO I still need to go? IS it possible they would send me this to try to trick me? I Need to take off work to go to court. So I hope I dont need to go

Absolutely you go. If it's not filed, it's not done. Others had that happen, and they ended up getting a default against them.

WOW There attorney would really stoop to this. It is AA , SO I guess anything is possible. Well I guess I was stupid for thinking of not going. Glad I asked here.

That's really not much of a "stoop" for a bottom feeder. Make sure you bring it to the judges attention. Good Luck.

And if they don't show (or even if they do) ask for it with prejudice.

I love to get with predjuce.  I really hope they are not trying to trick me.  The judge ruled agiasnt my summary judgment even though the plaintiff never responded. So hopefully if they dont show he gives me the prejudice

Yeah I know. but why would they send a letter saying they dropped the case if they dont intend to. That just seems like it should be illegal

 

They do that all the time. Many times the defendant will not show up to trial and the bottom feeder will get a default judgment and go after their bank account. They rely on the Defendant's to help them win their case.

One guy the lawyer told him at court right before they went in they dismissed and he didn't need to go in. Guess what? He got a judgement against him.

My own case they told me they were going to dismiss, I went anyway and the lawyer still asked me if I wanted to settle. I said yes, you dismiss with prejudice.

(I actually asked him if I had stupid written on my forehead, lol)

well I am going in gun blazing. I will be telling the jdb attonery waht a piece of **** he is . If in fact they don't dimiss. The thing is they never furnished any witness lists I just dont see them presenting any valid evidence. Outside  of a few lousy statements which are hersay . its mind boggling

 

They can try my bank accounts I dont have any money. lol

I remember that. It is surprising people fall for that, but they are out of their element, and the dismissal sounds so good; they are just not thinking straight.

Learn your states rules of evidence, particularly the hearsay rule and the business records exception to it, and the best evidence rule. Also the rules of authentication. Also, since your judge rules against you in an unopposed MSJ; I would make sure you have a court reporter at trial.

No surprise, AA will do anything to get a dollar. They pulled something similar on me by not showing up to defend against my MSJ. The judge had the clerk call them to see where they were, they told her that they sent a letter in that they were dismissing. I pushed forward with my MSJ and won. No letter requesting dismissal ever was filed with the court or was sent to my house.

It's not illegal unfortunately, but it's certainly ethically iffy for a member of the bar and officer of the court to do that. They certainly wouldn't pull this crap with another lawyer.

GO!  They would not be the first JDB to lie to a consumer so that they do not show up and they get a default judgment.

I went to the court on my lunch break. I asked the clerk what was going on.  As my trial was in a few days. She got the file and said that the guy wouldn't do that.(she said they file hundreds of lawsuits a year in there court and he wouldnt try to pull a stunt like this)  We called plaintiffs attorney . Apparently they did file it with the court but there was a clerical error due to a new girl working at the court. s So the case has been dimissed  since they dropped it before trial . I am stuck with out prejudice. So it is officially dropped. A big weight off my mind. thanks every one.
