I am trying to settle a debt collection lawsuit in which a Plaintiff doctor sued me for non-payment of a medical procedure and I filed a counterclaim for malpractice, fraud, and consumer fraud. The Plaintiff agreed to a mutual dismissal of all claims if we paid $1300 as well as sign a stipulation of settlement which has a couple of clauses that are concerning to me:3. Defendant agrees that her claims for malpractice, fraud, and consumer fraud set forth in counterclaim are meritless.4. Plaintiff agrees that they will pursue no claim for frivolous litigation or any other action arising out of defendant's filing a counter claim herein.6. In the event default persists for seven days, the attorney for plaintiff may with notice to the Defendant, obtain judgement from this court, ex parte, the amount then due by setting forth the nature of the default and the amount due.Can someone tell me why the Plaintiff's attorney want's us to agree that our counterclaims are meritless in clause #3? What liability can this expose us to by agreeing to this?Does clause #4 protect us from any such liabilities?What does clause #6 mean?

Where I had my intern ship at got shut down a couple weeks later for being ran illegally. I have school loans from nelnet.com because my tuition covered everything.

I have been deemed by the superior court of California to be a vexatious litigant. As you know, if I want to file new litigation as a proper, I must gain permission by the presiding judge. Someone has sued me in the limited jurisdiction of the superior court of California and I want to counter sue. As you also know, if I proceed pro se to counter sue in a case that I did not initiate, I can waive gaining permission from the presiding judge on a counter suit. The superior court limited jurisdiction case in which I want to counter sue names me as an individual and also the active corporation, which I'm the whole owner of. Even though I own an active corporation, I'm indigent, which is why I couldn't and still can't afford an attorney to represent me. I can support the fact I'm indigent with documents that prove I collect public assistance (SSI). As you know, a party which is a corporation in a superior court limited jurisdiction case must be represented by an attorney. Do I have to move the court to represent my corporation as a proper in limited jurisdiction? Can I move to exclude my corporation and just represent myself as an individual? What authority(ies) would give me the right to represent my corporation in limited jurisdiction? What authority(ies) would give me the right to exclude my corporation as a named party and represent myself as an indigent proper individual?

I was served a NC Civil Summons on December 21, 2015 by local police. I tried disputing some of the debt (interest etc) before I defaulted but this is not the original creditor. I called to set up payments and could not get any help on something I could afford monthly or a settlement of the debt. I know I need to file an Answer to their Complaint ASAP but I am confused as to what needs to be included in detail.Please help!
