Have you reviewed CCP 96 & 98?

There is still window of a few days that you might receive a CCP 98 declaration. If plaintiff intends to use one, the code says it must be served (placed in the mail) at least 30 days before trial. Keep an eye out for that in your mail this week, may show up in your online case file too. If it comes in, you'll want to subpoena that person once you're within 20 days of trial. In the meantime you can start working on a Trial Brief & an Objection to their evidence.

Thank you @RyanEx N

Nothingfrom the plaintiff. Trial Brief and objections at trial?

Do a search on the site, there are Briefs & Objections that CA defendants have used that are available for you to grab and edit to fit your case. Look for more recent threads since those briefs should cite more recent case law.. I can help you with the search, but work is going to have me busy for a bit before I can.

@RyanEX, @sadinca, @calawyer

Any ideas as to what might be good strategy? Do you know if the 10 day requirement for the trial brief, is it 10 calendar or court days?

I've known it to be court days, but it may vary from county to county. Even if it's too late, it's still worth filing and, importantly, serving upon the plaintiff. It lets them know you understand how to attack their case in court and that you'll be coming prepared.

RyanEXThank you. The plaintiff did not serve me with a copy of their trial brief if it was 10 court days or 10 calendar days. What do you think that means? Also no CCP 98 as stated in the previous post.

What would be the best way to object to the docs they've sent to me so far via BOP, attached with the complaint, and via verification of debt (not requested)?

I did not make CCP 96. I missed that deadline.

I did receive a letter stating "Notice to Attend Trial" CCP 1987(b).

Should i bring up those items in a trial brief or objection filing or prep for it but wait until they potentially try to introduce it at trial?

Any help would be greatly appreciated as i cannot afford to loose this trial.

Anyone have thoughts on this?  I'm not sure how specific jcman should be in their Trial Brief regarding the items Cavalry has sent via discovery. Go ahead and call the items out by name? Or keep in general terms?

Hi Again,

Case was dismissed without prejudice today 1 day prior to trial. Thank again for all your help. 

I hope they don't try this again as the last payment was May 2015 and now the SOL is over?

The SOL clock does not stop when they filed their suit right?

thankful and appreciative to all that helped.

Yes, the SOL clock stopped when they filed suit.  However, since they dismissed, it should be as though they never filed in the first place.

BUT, you need to make sure your state doesn’t have a “saving statute”.  Even though the debt is now outside the SOL a saving statute would allow them to refile within a certain amount of time.

@RyanEX Hi! if I could pick your brain on your last thought here before jcman posted it was dismissed.

I am in the same boat. Being sued by Calvary SPV I in CA.  Trial date is Oct. 4, 2019. I've filed BOP, Request for Admissions and answered their discovery. I did not file discovery nor did I get the CCP 96 in time. I have not received a CCP 98. In light of not having filed the CCP 96, can I proceed with MIL? How specific should my trial brief be?

Any help you could provide would be so appreciated! Thank you so much!
