Response: Yes, you can. You need to make sure to get an Answer form for the Clerk's Office. Otherwise, you can get sample forms and/or instructions on how to answer your complaint on the following web sites:

Response: No, you cannot. You need to follow the proper procedures in responding to the complaint. The first link that I provided would be quite helpful to you. Review it now and prepare your response. It would not take you more than 30 minutes to do this evening. Here are the links once more:
