You rated my service poorly, which hurts my job ratings with my employer, and you did this without giving me a chance to reply to you. Perhaps you did not understand the effect of the rating.
You are absolutely incorrect in your assumption on what is needed. So I think its rather odd that you assume to know what you do and don't do "in legal matters" as you have stated above. You are representing yourself in federal court in the United States (one of the most complicated legal systems in the world) and you are not a lawyer, which is akin to deciding to perform surgery on yourself when you are not a doctor.
You asked how to satisfy your meet and confer requirements. You need to send a letter, just as I said. The letter will be an Exhibit to your Motion to Compel. There is no "template" for the letter. Further, to write a letter like this at regular attorney fee rates would cost hundreds of dollars as they are time consuming.
In the letter, you need to state:
Plaintiff is writing to meet and confer regarding the interrogatories/requests for production that were sent to Defendant on _______ (date). The responses were grossly insufficient and the objections were baseless.
(Then you go through each deficient answer and explain why the responses is insufficient and why the objection does not apply).
(Next): I will contact you on (date) to fully discuss this matter with you as Plaintiff wishes to resolve this discovery dispute
without court intervention. However, if substantial new responses are not forthcoming in ten days from the receipt of this letter, I will file a Motion to Compel and seek appropriate relief.
