I just looked at the document. What I didn't show up for was the case management conference. Plaintiff (related) told me three days ago that I still have time and have not lost the case. On October 31st is the "Default Judgment Proveups." A defendant is not allowed to go there, right? Can he submit anything? (I KNOW YOU ARE NOT GIVING ADVICE :-)).
If a defendant cannot go, is the plaintiff obligated, if the defendant delivers by whatever appropriate method, to show a document that contradicts everything they're saying (e.g. they had the cure all along).
They also filed agains me to collect on a note that they have my signature on, but I don't remember getting the funds, and they have no proof of a check or wire transfer. Just a signed note.
They are lying, as they obviously haven't given the court the one document that shows they have had from me since the date of the loan the letter of direction to cure. And the money has always been in their hands.
There's presumed Undue Influence due to family.
They know and wouldn't deny the following statement:
I have ADHD and under doctor's care for severe emotional distress, backed up by blood tests etc, as well as no backup person (e.g. being evicted and have no assistant or other adult). I've got an apartment full of boxes.
