Statement of Claim
« on: May 28, 2012 01:42:55 PM »
Received summons with affidavit for suit from I think CA. There was no statement of claim marked on paper served and only showing a dollar amount. No account # or any explanation on papers. Do I have a leg to stand on in court?

First you need to answer the summons. Make sure they don't get a SJ for failure to appear as well.

Now you need to start doing some reading on the subject here. There are topics here that will explain the process.

Who is the OC. When did you default?

Do you have an agreement with arbitration, if so start reading how to take this out of court.
If you think I am an attorney, you are quite mistaken. If you are looking for legal advice check the  yellow pages!

Georgia Magistrate Court. GE Bank shows as Plaintiff. On the paperwork it is not checked on statement of claim as to if it is a loan, credit card, etc....nothing is filled out. Just a certain $$$ for principle and $$$ interest. Nothing else....nothing...no account #'s no nothing....

Well, you can take your frustrations out on court and GE money, we are just trying to help!

 I prefer my opponent not to include exhibits and  attachments, this way I can submit my own exhibits as true copies (card agreement ,etc). It is actually good to be recipient of a defective complaint.

In my answer  I would  include" failure to state a claim upon which relief shall be granted".

Go to "arbitration" forum and read the stickys  GE has an agreement with arbitration clause which you may find useful.
