I am being sued by Asset Acceptance, represented locally here in Nashville by Fulton, Friedman, & Gullace. The suit is for a debt that they're claiming from Chase bank, for around $2k.
At the first court date (December 2012), I spoke with their attorney and informed him that not only was I not aware of any such debt, but also that if it did exist, it's outside the statue of limitations, as I haven't dealt with any credit card company (except for 1, a different one) since 2006.
The attorney said that if it's outside the SOL they'd just drop it, and that he'd look into it and follow up with me. The case was reset to March 21, 2013 (2 days from now) and I never heard anything further about it (they never followed up). I also just called the court, and they confirmed that nothing has changed, they have no new filings since that first court date, and the case has not been dropped.
So, as it stands, I'm going back to court again in two days and it seems I'm right back in the exact same position I started in. I'm trying to get the specific attorney I dealt with to call me back. After my last court date, I attempted to follow the advice given in this thread: http://www.ripoffreport.com/collection-agency-s/asset-acceptance/asset-acceptance-taking-me-to-24x77.htm
Specifically, I tried to follow the advice given by Tom- Marquez (USA) regarding filing a "Motion for a more definite statement" or asking for a "Bill of Particulars", but the clerk looked at me like I was crazy, and had no idea what I was asking for.
So, I'm not sure what my next step should be. I know that I want to fight their claim, and go to trial if necessary, and I'm sure that involves formally denying their claim and possibly a motion or two, but I'm not sure if that needs to happen in court before a judge, or in writing submitted to the clerk, etc.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
