Ok, I was advised earlier that I should make sure of a (mutual release of claim of known or unknown arising from the transactions related to or arising out of the Complaint.Also: "Attorneys fees clause" for enforcement of the settlement agreement. The agreement seems pretty straight forward. My concern is if they do not truly own the assignment I do not want the next guy coming after me.......
Ok, other than what you just stated, the agreement seems ok to you?
I know you are limited in answering, if you can just answer in a hypothetical.
Hello are you still there?
Allow me to read then I will respond to your answer.
Ok, I read & that's pretty lengthy for my situation or maybe not.
Collection agency w/in house counsel filed a Complaint for "Account Stated" in the amount of $2,249.89 limited civil.
Trial is at the end of this week and in compliance of the local rules I called the Plaintiff for a meet & confer as required before I filed my Motion in limine and we also discussed her brief that she/counsel filed, I refuted most of what she had in her brief with excellent case law that I had compiled, I also basically had her against the wall in regards XXXXX XXXXX discovery she sent me. That's when we discussed my prior settlement offer of $300.00 and she reluctantly accepted.
Ok, Thank you.
