Consumer Protection Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
I think the better question is, what define the statute of limitations and when is the debt time barred? In the state of Michigan it is six years.
Is the Plaintiff responsible for presenting all bills to the court? The Plaintiff presented one bill as evidence which only has late charges on it. The bill does not have any consumer charges for goods or services.
My discovery is over and I did ask for everthing and the kitchen sink, and the time period the Judge gave for submitting all motions is up. The evidence the Plaintiff sent me was the one bill, an affidavit from the recordkeeper of the debt buyer, a bill of sale, which does not list the debt, and a printout sheet with the debt. The Plaintiff ask for summary disposition and I answered citing the MCL code for SOL along with other information and I asked the court to dismiss the case. Is this ok?
Thank you for the information. You have been very helpful and I appreciate it so much
