Impress Posted October 4, 2019 Report Share Posted October 4, 2019 Hi all, So I was sued in May of 2018 last year by Capital One for $3,201.28. I hired a lawyer (it was before I found this site). In October of 2018, the Cap One's lawyers (Rausch Strum) Filed a motion to request a hearing for summary judgment, but never actually filed a motion for summary judgement. I had asked my lawyer if we could move for dismissal for want of prosecution since it's been nearly a year since anything was done on this case but he informed me that since and answer and a petition had been filed we can't. He also said if they are asking for summary judgement then they have all the evidence they need to win the case. Since it's the OC suing me, I don't doubt it. He asked if I wanted to present a settlement offer. Since this is the OC, and I would like to get this dealt with, I am going to settle. My question is, what should I ask for? I was thinking 30-40%. Also, what would be the odds Capital One would be willing to delete this trade line? It's one of only three baddies on my credit right now. Or any other suggestions on what to ask for so this reflects on my credit in the most positive way possible. Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
