51? That would be 49, even in remedial math. I'm not going to look them all up, sorry.

No.  I am taking the official word of a former President of the United States...It's 52.

Oh, I remember him. I think. It was 57. "At a campaign event in Beaverton, OR, Obama claimed to have visited 57 U.S. states during the campaign." He must have gotten confused with John Kerry's wife.

I wonder what this thread would look like if it was on a forum populated by debt collectors and debt buyers?

"I'd like to see judgments last indefinitely"
"50 year statute of limitations"
"Repeal the FDCPA and the FCRA"
"All states should have a pre-judgment garnishment law like Minnesota has"

      By chance came across this....not from Wisconsin unfortunately....
     
               but every state should have a "Chapter 128" like Wisconsin.....looks better than BK

           Kudos to Wisconsin

Just thought of this:

A defendant in a lawsuit should not be required to pay a fee to answer the suit.  I think this is the case in some states  (CA, I think). 

I can sort of see the reasoning for having the defendant, as well as the plaintiff, pay court fees.  If only plaintiffs pay filing fees, there is the impression, and perhaps the reality, that the court is biased in favor of plaintiffs since that is their revenue source.

But the reality has a severe outcome, especially in debt cases:  the defendant has to pay a fee they can't afford to answer the summons, or get  a default judgment they can't afford either.

The defendant can ask for a waiver of the fees.

But I agree, it does seem somewhat one-sided to charge the defendant in a civil suit for the right to respond.
