Dear Customer,

I am sorry to learn of this matter.

Your defense could be based on "res judicata" showing that the matter was already litigated. You will have to show that the plaintiff in the new case shares the same interests as B of A did in the arbitration matter, and that the underlying matters are the same dispute or controversy.

You can try opposing this in a Motion to Strike as the responsive pleading instead of filing an answer.
