Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.

You're right that there's no legal reason a person would do this. Instead, it is likely that the person has no lawyer and is just telling you that he does as a bluff to force something on you or to intimidate you. Thus, you likely can tell this person to have his lawyer contact you and you'll arrange turning over the papers.

Roger ,
Thank you I really appreciate your help! I am spending so much on my lawyer and I want to have him working on the case not playing games with this person. If he refuses to tell my lawyers the information as well, does that help to show his instability as well? I was just curious if his not having a lawyer or refusing to provide his contact will delay things or will it just mean he has to go to court with no lawyer.

I can't say if his phantom lawyer shows instability or could just be a bluff in hopes to keep you at bay or on your heels. However, the fastest way to determine this is to have your lawyer set a status conference hearing or some other hearing and see if this person or his lawyer shows up......and that should show you what you're dealing with.
