what about satisfaction and accord
but would they have to show that the amount there requesting is over the amount of with there insurance paid is that correct, so could and affirmative defense be unjust enrichment or a counter claim or if they have been compensated for damages would that compensation create an collateral estoppal
is this done if you counter claim or you can file a counter complaint , would it be sought by admissions, interrogatories etc.
that would fall under just a defense of 1. "payment" that they have already been compensated for the damages which bars them from relief 2. unjust enrichment they have entered into this with unclean hands seeking unjust enrichment by double dipping
see you a good teacher!
well i do cause i check everything lol, anyway good teachers are like good students i believe. you cant be a good leader if you were not a good follower per se. not absolute but something like that by the way can you have an affirmative defense and counter claim?
or if i don't file them together would it just be a single complaint and not a counter claim and does one take away from the other like if i file a complaint on the same case would it be different from a counter claim?
