Is it suppose to look something like this? Should I use the word "Objection" or "Opposition"?

So I got a call from Midland lawyer's office today. Apparently they received the letter of demand for arbitration. She asked me if I really think the judge is gonna rule in my favor and then she asked what do I think the arbitrator gonna do for me and if I realize that they are just a bunch of lawyers. I don't understand that line of questions, can anyone shed some light on it, weird!

Could you please share those case law now as I'm in the process of drafting the Opposition to MSJ and Motion to Compel. 

Should I also Motion the court for Leave so as to amend my answer to include SOL defense?

I'll already sent a certified letter to the attorney's office demanding arbitration so could filing these motions mean I waive my right to arbitration?

I covered the cases in this thread:

Technically it's an "opposition" but either is fine.  The content is what's important. 

 

You don't need any of the stuff in italics because you're not filing a motion.  You're only responding to the motion that has been filed. 

 

You're asking the court to dismiss the motion for summary judgment because you have demanded arbitration.

 

You need to include a controverting statement of facts that line-by-line controverts each statement made by Midland in their statement of facts. Explain why their statements do not entitle them to summary judgment. 

 

 

So I got a call from Midland lawyer's office today. Apparently they received the letter of demand for arbitration. She asked me if I really think the judge is gonna rule in my favor and then she asked what do I think the arbitrator gonna do for me and if I realize that they are just a bunch of lawyers.

They are trying to bully you into not exercising your contractual right.  Might be an FDCPA violation. A NACA Attorney might be interested in this. www.naca.net

Without proof of that conversation, there's only an allegation by the OP that it took place.  Midland could claim the call was an attempt to settle.  Conversations via phone should be recorded.

They're usually recorded by Midland.

I doubt midland will hand over its own noose.

They'd sooner offer a settlement. 

Your always saying it's about having leverage, right?

So just to be clear, at this point which should I file: 

  1. MOTION FOR DISMISSAL OF SUMMARY JUDGMENT? 
  2. MOTION FOR OPPOSITION OF SUMMARY JUDGEMENT? or
  3. MOTION FOR OBJECTION OF SUMMARY JUDGEMENT?

 

Also, when to file MTC? 
Should I expect a response to my Demand for Arbitration from Midland?
What if they don't respond at all?

Of course they offer settlements.

I would hardly consider the mention of a phone call that you don't have a recording of as leverage.

Is an opposition to summary judgment. The judge can only grant or deny a motion.  I said "dismiss" but I meant "deny". Sorry for the confusion. 

 

File the motion to compel now.  Talk about the phone call and how it was clear to you that Midland wasn't going to arbitrate voluntarily (assuming that was in fact clear to you).  Attach a copy of the letter you sent,  a copy of green certified receipt thing with the post mark showing you sent it, the signature card showing they received it (to get this you might have to contact the post office where you dropped it off) and a copy of the agreement with the arbitration clause.

That's why I said to talk to a lawyer.

If the OP would rather hear it from a lawyer, then by all means, call one.

The leverage here may be in the arbitration however, if the case can get there.

I don't wanna get even more confuse so could we just stick to the MSJ please and answer below for me? What should the heading be?

  1. MOTION FOR DISMISSAL OF SUMMARY JUDGMENT? 
  2. MOTION FOR DENIAL OF SUMMARY JUDGMENT?
  3. MOTION FOR OPPOSITION OF SUMMARY JUDGEMENT? 
  4. MOTION FOR OBJECTION OF SUMMARY JUDGEMENT?

Also, when to file MTC?

That's what I would do (regarding post 120).

 

Technically one is an opposition to a motion (opposition to MSJ) and the other is a motion to the court (MTC Arbitration).

 

I would think they are both critical.

 

Read you rules for opposition to MSJ

Could someone please post a sample Motion for Opposition of Summary Judgement and a sample Motion to Compel for Arizona?

Google (if not).

 

You can get an idea by looking at one from any state. Also  use theirs as a template and make yours look like it but say the opposite (oppose what it says).

 

You were on the right track in post 101 and 104.

I have the proof back from the post office.

I read in one post you said in AZ, "a Motion to Compel private contractual arbitration is not proper unless 1.) an agreement/contract has been shown with an arbitration clause; and 2.) one of the parties has refused to arbitrate per the agreement.  A.R.S. 12-1502(A). Midland has not agreed or refused to arbitrate so do I still file the MTC now?
