justlooking Posted February 1, 2022 Report Share Posted February 1, 2022 Sued in MN and to date, the case has not been filed in Court. JDB (LVNV) hired attorney who sent a Summons/Complaint, sent back an Answer, they sent back an intent to file MSJ, I sent the MTC Arbitiration. Received letter about 2 weeks later stating they would put a "stay" on the case until I filed with AAA or JAMS. But - this is MN. There is nothing yet filed with the Court ( and I verified) so I have a few concerns. One is that I thought they had to file the case with the Court before I could or should file with the arbitarion company. Does the plaintiff have to file in court in order to lallow the MTC to do its work? What else should I do? Should I call and offer a settlement valid until they file in court? Or should I say, I'm not entering into arbitration until you file your lawsuit with the Court? I am ok to file the arbitration but I feel they are perhaps trying to allow the case to toll or something, doing all this in arbitration without filing the suit and then the MTC etc. I may not be explaining things properly, so apologies. I just don't have a good feeling about this. The other concern is that the debt is not a few thousand dollars. It's over $15K. What do I need to consdier with strategy so that arbitration has a better chance to work for my situation? Please help. I have read the arbiration strategy, makes sense, but need to learn more on the tactical steps now that I'm in it. Thank you. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
