Thanks for the feedback. I have already filled a motion to compel in December - after doing so the answer heating was canceled and this pretrial conference scheduled.

For #4 I put that because the form on the court site had the following after #4 as kind of a sub question (I think)

a. The Court has jurisdiction over the parties and the subject matter.

I don't have a way to remove that and get this filed tomorrow so what damage does that have to me? I don't want to cross out my answer there I imagine.
