In the plaintiffs motion for summary they just provided credit card statements. What opposition response can use to file my response back to the court?

Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to help if I can. Please tell me more about the case. What is your defense to the allegations? Thank you.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
My answer to the lawsuit was the following and then they sent this motion for summary judgement. This was the answer I submitted with my affirmative defense:
1. Denied knowledge or information as to all allegations of complaint
2. Lack of personal jurisdiction
3. Court lacks subject matter jurisdiction
4. Failure to state a cause of action
5. Plaintiff, violated the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act, and is prohibited from collecting alleged debt
6 a Plaintiff is not a proper party to this action
7. Failure of Plaintiff to satisfy condition precedent.
Consumer Protection Lawyer: TJ, Esq., Attorney replied 1 year ago

Hi again.

That list doesn't really tell me anything about your defense. For example, why would the court lack subject matter jurisdiction? Why is the plaintiff not a proper party? Bear in mind that those defenses are useless unless you have facts to support them. So what facts do you have to support a viable defense?

Thanks.

I don't really know. What are some facts I can use in my defense?
Consumer Protection Lawyer: TJ, Esq., Attorney replied 1 year ago

Hello again. Unfortunately, I don't know the facts of your case. I'd be making it up.

Let's start at the beginning. Do you owe the debt? If so, when was the last time you made a payment?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Last payment was made May 2013 then it was charged off
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I do not know what credit card this is for as it doesn't look familiar to me. They sent copies of the statements and last payment was May 2013
Consumer Protection Lawyer: TJ, Esq., Attorney replied 1 year ago

Hi again.

Since the last payment was in 2013, the statute of limitations wouldn't apply (i.e., they have 6 years to file a lawsuit).

You can certainly argue that you never took out the credit card. But my suggestion would be to immediately file a report of identity theft with the police. If you do not, then your claim that you didn't open the account would probably not be very believable. If the police investigate and there seems to be evidence that it is not your account, then that is certainly a viable defense. Of course, all of that would be pointless if they have a signed agreement from you, or if they can show that you made payments (i.e., canceled checks, or money transfers from your bank account). Also, bear in mind that it is a crime to falsely report to the police that your identity was stolen. Accordingly, you will need to be sure of what you're doing.

If you know that you cannot win with an identity theft argument, then my suggestion would be to attempt a settlement. This could involve a lump sum payment for less than what is owed, or a payment plan, or both. Ultimately, if the amount owed is just too large to deal with, bankruptcy is an option.

I know this isn't the type of answer that you were hoping for, but under the circumstances I hope you understand why this is the answer, and how best to proceed.

Please let me know if you need clarification, as I am happy to continue helping you until you are satisfied.

can I file a motion for discovery of production of documents? Original Credit card contract, credit card agreement, copies of all assignments, "chain of title" and "proper party", proof of mailing of all monthly statements, etc? How can I respond
Consumer Protection Lawyer: TJ, Esq., Attorney replied 1 year ago

Hello again.

You don't file a Motion for Discovery. Instead, you merely send your Discovery requests to the plaintiff. If the plaintiff does not respond, then you can file a Motion to Compel. However, there are 2 important points: (1) there are certain deadlines for Discovery, so you should check with the court for any Order that provides such a deadline; (2) only certain courts allow Discovery. If you're in the Supreme Court, then yes. If not, then the answer is likely no. But check with the court clerk.

If you do send discovery, then I would ask for the documents that you mention.
