Customer Question
Consumer law, North Dakota Starting in...
Consumer law, North Dakota
Starting in 2010 I was sued by a debt collecting law firm for a credit card debt.
In February 2011 I filed a Motion to Dismiss with the court. The court has not ruled on my motion to dismiss as of this date. I believe there is a rule which says, if the court does not rule upon the motion within 120 days, it is deemed dismissed by the court.
I was never served any papers by the court, and I checked North Dakota Register of Actions, and didn't see action taken by the court.
The debt collecting law firm received a default judgment from the court, than garnished my bank account. I received a letter from the debt collecting law firm for satisfaction of debt in late March 2014.
I wish to sue the law firm for illegal activities.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
