Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Lee, you can ask the court for leave to have more time to file your answer. They typically will give another two weeks in order to have an answer filed with the court on a case like this one. You can then file a motion to dismiss this frivolous suit and can even counter sue him for damages or seek sanctions against him based on his suit.
It should be noted in both documents that you have the right to free speech and the right to your own opinion. Your statement is protected free speech and there is case law (actually a Courtney Love - musician) out there that protects the speech as well.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
Best wishes going forward!
Did you have any other questions or comments? I just want to make sure that you are as comfortable as possible moving forward. Thanks!
