Amending Defense Answer issue

Recommended Posts

I'm in Oklahoma.


I'd like to file a Motion to Amend an Answer, then Motion to Suspend Discovery, followed by Motion to Compel Arbitration.


I believe I need to amend a Defense Answer, because Request for etc (their Discovery) are due on 02/26/2015, to add that I would like to start the arbitration process. It's been 10 months since I originally responded with my Answers.


This is what I found for Amendments


(a) Amendments. --A party may amend a pleading once as a matter of course at any time before responsive pleading is served or, if the pleading is one to which no responsive pleading is permitted and the action has not been placed on the trial calendar, may so amend it at any time within twenty days after it is served. Otherwise a party may amend a pleading only by leave of court or by written consent of the adverse party. If a party files a motion to amend a pleading, the party shall attach the proposed amended pleading to the motion. Leave of court shall be given freely when justice so requires. A party shall plead in response to an amended pleading within 10 days after service of the amended pleading unless the court otherwise orders.



Is it too late to go to arb, or do I not need to make a Motion to Amend the Answer and filing a Motion to Suspend Discovery/Motion to Compel Arbitration does what I am trying to accomplish?
