Response
: You should address yourself as the Defendant after you have introduced yourself. Using "I," "Me," and "MY," can be confusing when describing events. See example below:


"Now comes (_Your Name), the Defendant, in the above-captioned action and responds to the Plaintiff’s Complaint as follows:

1. The Defendant does not have sufficient information to deny or admit to allegations in Paragraph 1"
