I have a trial date set for early next month in New Jersey, and I believe I have a fairly good chance of wining the case based on the fact that the Plaintiff (a junk debt buyer), doesn’t have “legal standing”, and actually admitted that fact in pretrial. However after experiencing the overall environment in that pretrial hearing, my sense is that there’s a built in bias within the court system against the consumer and in favor of debt collectors.

My experience within the “settlement negotiations processes” convinced me that a predisposed alliance exists between debt collectors and the court system, irregardless of what the actual facts may be…of course I hope I’m wrong.

In my particular situation, the law clerk or volunteer assigned to mediate started out cordial enough and friendly, however his tone soon changed when I began to present the facts and refused to negotiate and when I referenced my defense of “standing”, he attempted to coheres me into accepting a settlement, and the lawyer for the Plaintiff chimed in and admitted that the documentation provided during the discovery phase was faulty, but then sited some ambiguous case law, in New Jersey…the mediator certainly didn’t approach is task as a mediator, but rather as an advocate for the Plaintiff.

I’ve done my homework and I’m defending myself, and I’m confident that if the process is fair and based on the actual facts of the case, I should prevail…however my personal and recent experience with the court system suggests otherwise.

Ironically I just received today by certified mail a “NOTICE OF MOTION FOR A SUMMARY JUDGEMENT” by the plaintiff’s attorney, I have 10-days to respond, and object to this motion…obviously they don’t want to go to trial to prove their case.

Should I send them a letter stating to prove I owe the debt at this time, I lost my job in the recession and was forced to get my SS early and have been unable to pay off certain medical and credit card debts, I am not able to pay anything at this time, any help will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

What I got is a piece of paper with late fees, over limit fees, transactions made, 150 dollar annual fee, etc. This look like it was typed up from a attorney office and these dates are in 2008. They created this and they state I owe them almost 1000 dollars. There is no document showing that I actually owe this money. I will respond and ask them to show proof that I owe this them. They supposedly bought this card out. A salute visa card. They will not get the opportunity to garnish my wages. Its unbelievable for them to think they will get away with this and I want to see the documentation showing I owe this money.
