I received a demand for payment from a debt collector. I

Hi. I received a demand for payment from a debt collector. I responded telling them that I did not feel it was a valid debt, because it was for a medical facility I was sure I had never been to and for the services of a doctor I had not seen. I requested they send validation of debt. Rather than send validation of debt, they served me with a Summons to appear at the Douglas County Courthouse. They make it difficult to get anything to them in a trackable manner, only giving a PO box, with no signing authority for an address. I need to file a response to the court it seems. I have no issue with paying the amount they are asking, if it was a valid debt. But I honestly believe that it is not. I am not sure where to turn next.

Texas Law Question re judgments: (hanky-panky against me) 1.

Texas Law Question re judgments: (hanky-panky against me)1. WHO ELSE, if anyone, besides a “judgment creditor”, as defined below – is entitled to “aid from a court”?2. DOES “aid from a court” – essentially mean having the court do “execution”, i.e. via sheriff or such, or other pressure by the court?3. AND PARTICULARLY, what does “other judgment creditor” (as used in below definition) mean or refer to. Does that refer to “by assignment of judgment” – i. e. “standing in the shoes of” – an original judgment creditor – or a prior “assignee” judgment creditor?4. Again, ANYONE ELSE, entitled to “aid from a court”, besides a “judgment creditor”, as defined below?5. Someone is telling the court, that they are “successor in interest of a final judgment rendered in favor of a Law Office, P.C. – a 9 year ago forfeited entity (charter forfeited by Secretary of State, never revived, judgment never transferred, i.e. “assigned”). Is there even such a thing as “successor in interest of a final judgment”? – or have to be the actual (current? assigned?) “judgment creditor”, as defined below?The Texas law I found:Sec. 31.002. COLLECTION OF JUDGMENT THROUGH COURT PROCEEDING. (a) A judgment creditor is entitled to aid from a court of appropriate jurisdiction through injunction or other means in order to reach property to obtain satisfaction on the judgment if the judgment debtor owns property, including present or future rights to property, etc.(1) "Judgment creditor" means a party in whose favor a judgment has been rendered, whether a plaintiff, counterclaimant, cross-claimant, third party plaintiff, or other judgment creditor.Udo Birnbaum ***@******.***

My tenants had an illegal large marijuana growing operation

My tenants had an illegal large marijuana growing operation going on in the California rental house, which I was unaware of. I confronted them and told them they had to move out and rather than filing the 3 day eviction notice they agreed to forfeiting their security deposit so that they could stay the final 2 months of rent paid in advance. Now they are taking me to small claims court over the security deposit as I did not file a letter in 3 weeks but rather considered our verbal agreement binding. Do I have any chance of fighting this?

I live in Massachusetts. I was scammed by a painter who is now suing me in small claims court ( Clinton District). I have filed Dept. Consumer Protection Complaints against painter and partner (sub?). The sub took apart and took 1/2 of a multi-piece swing set and left the other half. I would like to counter sue for damages to house and paint and for the remainder of swing set to be removed. My question is can I sue for the swing set either as part of a counter suit or separately and can I counter sue in a different district ( Concord)?

I have been summoned into small claims court. In the summons

I have been summoned into small claims court. In the summons the date was changed after the notary stamp.This company in the contract I signed offers a deferment of payment. I stopped paying them which got me to this court summons.When I experienced financial hardship and requested a deferment they refused or would not extend the 7 days. 5 business days I needed.I just need some advice if I should pursue a counter claim. Or if what they are doing is even legal. I have made payments since I received this summons.
