Hi Doug, Thanks for the quick reply. I may be confusing some of this. The letter is full of legal jargon and I'm not sure what it all means. I copied direct quotes from the letter to hopefully clarify this a bit:
Letter titled: Motion of plaintiff for judgement against [me]
"This firm represents plaintiff, [client's name], in the captioned case. Kindly accept this letter in lieu of a more formal brief in support of [the client's] motion for an Order entering judgement in favor of [the client] against [me] for monies ordered to be paid but were not paid."
"The Court should enter judgement against [me] for all rents past due and should compel all future rent payments be paid to the [law firm] trust account."
"...the total rent due is [rent amount], and [the client] respectfully XXXXX XXXXX entry of judgement in its favor and against [me] for the total rent due."
"In conclusion, [the client's] motion should be granted and an Order should be entered for judgement in favor of [the client] and against [me] for the total rent due."
I'm not exactly sure what that all means, the type of legal action they are looking to take, and what i need to consider to protect/defend myself. I already have a new lease and will be fully moved out by the time the lawyers bring this before the court.
Also, if you have not guessed yet, the letters written by the lawyer are very one-sided. There is a transcript in the set of paperwork from a deposition that i appeared at (which is around the last time i contacted you), and that contains my side of the story. But again, their letters to the court are devoid of that.
