No..It a lawsuit from someone claiming I run a FL based LLC out of CA. They claim I am the president, and that I have 2m of their money. I have never run a company out of CA and have never heard of the suing party and have never signed or received money from anyone by that name. I was however a partner in a company in 2011 in FL. But I was the secretary and never dealt with any of the documents, banking, or transactions on paper. Even my old partners have never hear of this group. But for some reason they are suing me. So thats why I want to file a motion to dismiss.
Thanks for response and clarification. I do have one more question. Is there a form on the Los Angeles Superior Court Website that I can fill out first and bring in before I hire an attorney? If this looks like they are trying to open a discovery phase can I at least just answer it generically at the courthouse and then see where it goes from there? I know there tremendous wait times for trials in Los Angeles, and I assume there would be lengthy wait to even see a judge for judgement against me even if I didnt respond and they got a default judgement. Which is something I wont do. But I cant I use the back log of cases to my advantage while I get my ducks in a row? Thanks, John
One more thing when Im done filling out the document you sent with the link do I have to hand that in person at the courthouse or can I submit that online? What is the process, and does it cost money to have it filed from my end? Thanks
Thanks. Just curious if this somehow fell through the cracks and I never received it how it easy would it be for the suing the party to get a default judgement in CA courts against me for 2m? and how long in general is the wait to see a judge to get that judgement. The reason I ask is that its scary to think someone could just put a 2m lien on me if say someone in my apt signed for the subpoena and I somehow never got it.

I received a wallop of a deposition this weekend by UPS. It contained a date in October for me to appear and 43 questions. My question is do I have to appear in person or can I answer these questions in writing. Its clear like you stated, they couldn't get a default judgement against me for 2M just because I didn't answer or show up. What are the ramifications for not going to the depo and what type of delays are they looking at to try and get judge to make a ruling. Its clear to me this attorney is running the bill and doing as much as possible on paper to keep this going. Thanks
I just submitted a new question addressed to you.
