being Sued by Midland Funding in CT

Recommended Posts

I am currently being sued by Midland Funding in CT. I filed an answer using the time-barred SOL based the contracts "choice of law". Which does not work in CT I found out when I went to court. The lawyer ended up asking for a 60 day continuance after I question the chain of custody and robo-signed affidavit during our hallway chit-chat. I have been looking for a lawyer ever since. If I lived in NY I would have hundreds of lawyer to choose from but it doesn't seem that any lawyers in CT are in the loop or it's harder to win these cases here.


Anyway, I am running out of time and need to figure out what my next step would be. Next court date is in 2 weeks. Any advise would be appreciated.

If this is a small claims court action, credit card debt, credit aggreement at time of default has arbitration (JAMS, NAF, AAA) and near the $5000 limit for small claims your best approach would to be getting it transferred to Superior Court where you can file a Motion to Compel Arbitration. That takes it out of the courts jurisdiction. Midland generally folds at arb.
