Did the plaintiff lie and say that you were served with the application for summary judgment? So was a false affidavit of service filed?
It is not perjury if lies were told in a Statement of Claim.
It is perjury to lie under oath and that would be both when giving live testimony and also when an Affidavit is sworn.
Did you know that you have a right to cross-examine on all affidavits?
The cards you hold is that the Plaintiff lied in an Affidavit and that is perjury and you will go after the plaintiff if this is not resolved.
So a settlement is best for the Plaintiff and really for both of you so that there is certainty and so it will be over.
