My other question is too, should I file a motion to have Asia DelCastillo's affidavit thrown out? At what point do I do this and on what grounds?  Just something I have read in other posts on this site and believe it is applicable in my case.

Thanks!!

Hello all.  I hope I am posting in the right forum, if not please direct me, or move my post.  :)

I spent most of yesterday and last night reading numerous posts about being sued by Midland Funding, LLC...

Technically you should have posted in  Is There a Lawyer in the House since you have already been served.   

Their supposed credentials are irrelevant.  If it walks like a robo-signer and quacks like a robo-signer then that is all it is, plain and simple. 

You seem to have gotten so consumed and tangled up in researching these idiots that you overlooked telling us the amount you are being sued for which is quite relevant.

You are correct , I did get consumed.  I apologize.  The amount in question is $1,673.85.  I understand I have to answer to the summons, I just want to make sure I give the with the right responses to those questions and list the correct affirmative actions.  You or anybody else's assistance or direction in this matter would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

Can you say why you say that. Just curious.

Pay no attention to @PLAY MAKER.   He shows up every once in a while to spout nonsense.  He never provides anything of substance.

Wow!  Tell that to all the people we’ve helped.  And tell it to the TX appeals courts who ruled that JDB affidavits were sufficient.  

You are the one with no clue.

Don't know about what happened or has happened in the past with the other poster.  Not trying to get between the bickering.  Just looking for guidance on the verbiage I should use in my response and at what point and on what grounds should I fill a motion to have the affidavit dismissed.

Just to clarify BV80, you meant insufficient above correct?

Thanks!!!

No.  I meant “sufficient.”   There are TX courts that have that JDBs can authenticate the business records of an OC.  For example:

But, "a record may be `made' by a business although it was initially authored by a different business." Simien v. Unifund CCR Partners, 321 S.W.3d 235, 244 (Tex.App.-Houston [1st Dist.] 2010, no pet.).Personal knowledge by a third party of the procedures used in preparing the original documents is not required when the documents are incorporated into the business of the third party, are relied upon by the third party, and there are other indicators of reliability.

Thank you for the clarification.  I went back and reread your response to play maker and realized I misread it earlier when I was looking at it from my phone.  So is there anyway to determine which TX courts those are?

I’m glad to see I’m not the only person who does that on occasion.  😀

Do you intend to answer with a general denial of all alleged claims, along with a MTC,  and dismiss, or in alternative stay. Including a demand to arbitrate.

This is what I am not not certain about and seeking guidance on. What is your opinion if I may ask?

My suggestion if it were me personally, would be to file an answer with a general denial of all alleged claims, asserting a ''Affirmative Defense'' section on the answer stating: lack of subject matter jurisdiction due to an underlying contractual arbitration clause. I would send out today a notice to OP  demanding arbitration pursuant the written agreement, which replaces both of the parties rights to litigate in court before a judge or jury. Along with filing the answer, i would file a MTC including a copy of the card agreement as exhibit ''A'' and your notice demand for arbitration as exhibit ''B''.

@Robby8900 I've read in these threads that it's best to wait on filing an MTC until it's granted by the judge. 

The judge can’t grant the motion if you don’t file it.

Can I get a review of the attached document and get opinions if looks ok to file?  My response is due by Thursday and I work 7:30am - 5:30pm during the week.  However, I am off tomorrow and would like to make sure it gets filed with the court.

Also, do I or should I file a MTC for arbitration with my response or can I file it at a later date, or do I wait for a response from the plaintiff?  I know I need to notify the JDB that I am demand to arbitrate in accordance with the credit card agreement.  Can this notification be sent electronically via email since the lawyer's office provided it in their original petition and I am listing it in my response?

Thanks for all your assistance.  It is greatly appreciated.

Your prayer for relief comes in your MTC and you don't have to file the MTC with your answer if you don't want to. You may wait a week or so to file MTC. Yes you can email the attorney a demand for arb, do so in pdf form.

Your answer is fine in Texas courts.  It does not "need tweaking."  Do not file it electronically; make two copies and deliver it to the court in person and ask them to file stamp one copy for you to keep.

What?  This may be relevant in Ohio courts but is irrelevant in Texas and nothing needs to be in .pdf form.
