Being sued by Sync via Z associates In Florida How does this work?

Recommended Posts

I found this forum a little too late.  I got a lot of information to submit my response, but I hadn't dug really deep yet.

I also can't find the list of questions to answer to streamline so I'll do my best to make sure I cover it all.

Synchrony Bank (Sam's Club) suing via the big Z attorneys. $8240.29

I was served properly on Feb 19.  20 days to respond.  I responded in time.

I filed an answer that claimed "Lack of knowledge to fully answer" all statements except the statements that pointed out an exhibit.  To those I acknowledged that the exhibits appeared to be what they claimed they were but then had "Lack of knowledge to fully answer" the rest of the statement. Their two exhibits were the credit card agreement and my last statement.

I also filed a Motion to Dismiss claiming "Plaintiff failed to attach signed agreement with original creditor (they used to be GE financing or something) as required per Rule 1.130(a)"

So I thought I'd be waiting for a court date.  Today I received Motion for Summary Judgement from them.  It includes an affidavit from a Sync employee, Affidavit of attorney's costs ($370), and the military thing showing I'm not military.

I've prepared a Motion to Compel Arbitration and am ready to file that tomorrow.

What else do I do?  Do I start filing JAMS tonight?
Will a Judge rule on any of the Motions without a hearing?

Thanks for any assistance.  In the meantime, I'll keep reading

The courts are well aware that there is no signed agreement in a credit card case.  Your motion will be denied.

You need to file an opposition to this motion ASAP or you will lose.

I believe that FL requires you file this INSTEAD of an answer.  If you already filed the answer you may have waived your right to arbitrate in FL.  You need to find out ASAP.

Get a consult with a good Consumer Attorney now!  @LawKitty is a great FL attorney to start with.  This case is in State Court not small claims due to the amount and you will have to know ALL the rules of civil procedure or you will lose this.  You need help now.

This is county court, not State Court. 

The rules will still be more rigid than small claims.  Small claims is very informal as most parties are not represented by a lawyer and doing this on their own for the first time.
