Lucy, I would like to have a chance to defend myself in the court and even if it is just with all his witnesses. It is very helpful what you wrote and I basically just need to show up then and do my thing to the best of my ability.
So I will not respond to any request from their side at this time and just show up on the date of trial.
One question is that even though I will only show up there can I bring my own small evidence of sorts or does it have to be submitted someplace prior to trial? Also not having any witnesses and avoiding deposition can not hurt me in automatic loss of trial.
Note: The trial is really nonsense and my goal is to try to defend myself with least amount of money spent. Thank you Lucy, you have been a great help to me...for prior and this question.
OK got it. so hearing is the important one. I know we had some hearing with my previous lawyer and since his lawyer did not contact me via email, phone or mail since I switched to no lawyer (in nov 2012). the best way to see if we have a hearing is to call the court offices directly correct? I know they are usually done via phone if the defendant is out of state. I just need yes or no on this last answer.
