I mistakenly sent an answer to a counterclaim without
I mistakenly sent an answer to a counterclaim without beginning the answer with the background and what the defendant claimed, I just went right into denying or admitting the allegation and then affirmative defenses. Can I just follow up with an addendum or a re-do of the whole thing without approval? The answer is due today and I just sent the original one yesterday. Or, do you think just the answers without the background will be enough?

In NH. A neighbor #1 has decided to claim that his
In NH. A neighbor #1 has decided to claim that his neighbor's #2 driveway is on his property, and has put a large pallet on it's side, screwed it into the driveway, and placed a "not trespassing" sign on it. This driveway has been in place, used and maintained for over 20 years. #1 are bully type people, so #2 is being cautious before making a stand. Finally, #2 removed the pallet, and #1 would go back and screw it down again. Because #1 is frustrated, they filed an injunction against nice neighbors #2. #1 has NO legal proof, as there is no legal survey done. They are basing their claim of a Tax map, that clearly states it is not for legal use. Can't #2 file a 635:2 until this court hearing in May is heard? Shouldn't #2 counter and take advantage of this court hearing?JA: Can you tell me what state this is in? And how long has this been going on?Customer: NH New Hampshire. Aggressively last 3 weeks.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Neighbor #2 called local police to witness the obstruction. They can't do anything because it is a "civil" matter. #2 informed them the 2nd and 3rd time they put this pallet back. Neighbor #1 just filed and injunction, which is not to be heard until May 5th (I believe). I just think until then, #1 should remove the pallet until it is heard. and meanwhile #2 have order in place RSA 635:2 #1 are bully type people, #2 sweet people in their early 70's who want to move.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: We live in an Association, where they never did legal surveys, only used the tax map outline. Shouldn't the burden of proof be on #1, and what other suggestion can be made to make sure #1 stay off the driveway and place an obstruction. Why can't local police step in???
