being sued

someone I know is being sued. And they never had to go through with this before. First, they learned about the case because one of the tv court shows sent a letter. But never received a summons.

There is a court case date and time etc.... on the cook county site for small claims. Does the person have to file an apperance? And can this be done at any court house in cook county?

The case is based on property damage. And I'm assuming the defendent should counter sue because the plantiff made an agreement not to collect any "moneys" and there was equal amount of property damage on the defendents part too. So how do they go about filing to "counter sue"?

I notice a summons was returned on the county website, does this mean anything?

I answered most of the questions I had from the legal aid site. But still have this one. Because no summons was received, does that mean the court case is on hold?

They have to recieve a summons, so until they are summonsed the case shouldn't happen.


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

A TV court show?

Thats not a real court, therefore that letter doesn't mean he's getting sued. It means he/she is being asked to agree to some form of binding arbitration for the entertainment of the trailer park set.

The letter came stating, due to a public record showing that you have a case against you. We are interested in doing your case on tv. And we will pay court costs and the verdict. So we both knew who filed the lawsuit. I went to the cookcounty clerk website, typed in my friends name, and I found the document saying, this person has filed a motion to sue you ........... and there will be a court date on this ....... and in room.......

Right now, it says summons, "no contact" on cook county's clerk site.

And to add.
My friend called the guy up. and spoke to his wife. Saying why is your husband suing me. And she said, I dont know anything about it. So I dont know how this should play, since my friend is aware of the case and the plantiffs wife to verify it.

tell him to just go. The tv show pays court costs and the verdict and he gets on tv. Go, enjoy those 15 minutes of fame, see if he can get thrown out of the courtroom by Judge Judy, that would be a sweet claim to have

my friend called up the tv show and listened to the story and they said it wasn't juicy enough.

I think it's a win if my friend's witness doesn't flake out.

what fun. First I assumed what I read was true.

The defendent needs to make an apperence, and that costs 130 dollars. Eventhough the Plantiff made a donation for 150 dollars.

Mediation doesn't get anything solved and they dont note the case to the judge.

Judge listens to plaintiff. Judge listens to the defendant, says heres the verdict, eventhough the defendant hasn't even finished the case, showed pictures of the damages, or even had the witness, WITNESS say something. WTH. We drag the witness to court and make them wait 3 hours.

So my friend has to pay half of what the plantiff wants. No one is happy, and the only thing the judge secretary? says is get a lawyer.

I'm not even sure how the judge pulled half of the costs out of his ass. It was either the Plantiff either wins 100% or the defendent shows the itimized damages.


So does anyone know how long payment is needed to be paid before a Lien is put on a property?

And we need some real judges.

Uh, yeah. It sounds like your friend's defense was, basically, "Well, it cost me something too." I don't think that's going to work unless you countersue. The judge didn't seem to think so either from the sound of it.

Half the costs probably came from the idea that your plaintiff is 50% liable, which is about as good as you can do.

I assume you meant to ask how long you have to pay before a lien is placed. I don't know why you should. If your friend is not planning to delay payment, then it doesn't matter. And, if your friend IS planning to delay payment, you should probably get hold of a real lawyer and get some real advice, rather than asking your internet buddies. Come to think of it, that might have been a good idea to begin with.

This thread is a joke right? If not it needs to be retitled as one



go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

It's a bit of a different type of a case, but the judge should have looked at the damages. And he didn't care if my friend was served or not. Judge was 80 years old and didn't seem to care. The court case before ours was continued because he didn't want to make a verdict on it.

the verdict came out to 1000 dollars. Moneys tight and it might be a week to pay the verdict.

A week isn't going to hurt anybody. It'll probably cost $1000 for a lawyer by the time it's said and done.

After the payment is made, MAKE SURE to get a copy of the court record that has the judge signing off the judgement (proof that it was paid). I have a judgement from '01 that almost kept me from getting from getting my house. I've tried several times to get it off my credit report unsuccessfully, even though I have proof it was paid in full.

How do you go about getting the judge to sign off? I told my friend to send the check certified mail.

I would just go in to the circuit clerks office a couple months after you pay. They should have a copy of the thing. I'll have to see if I can dig mine up to see what the name of the document is.
