Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
So we would have been better off submitting the complaint without evidence/statement... and presented the evidence in court later? Is that kinda what I'm gathering? The courts wouldn't take the photo evidence upon filing, just the statement referencing them, they said to bring the photos later. So, can we just provide the statement to the other side, not the photo evidence? In other words, can we leave out anything that wasn't given to the courts, even if it was referenced in the statement? I would like to just have those in the court, not sent ahead of time to the defendant.
