Are you allowed to counter sue in landlord tenant court?
Can you file the countersuit the same day in court?
GENERALLY, NO. It must be filed before the day of the hearing. It is up to the judge whether to hear it that day, or continue the case to give the other side a chance to prepare.
Can a motion to dismissed be filed the same day in court for landlord tenant?
Yes. It is up to the judge whether to grant or deny it.
If the landlord complaint is filed incorrectly can the case be dismissed and on what grounds
"Incorrectly" is too broad a term. The judge decides if the the error is fatal or correctable by amendment.
