Someone tell me if the statement below is to object to the plaintiff discoveries? or by signing I agree to what I am accused?

Asked 9 months ago - Pasadena, CA

I am the defendant in the above-captioned matter. I am familiar with the contents of the foregoing:
Defendant ______ Responses to Plaintiff's Special Interrogatories, set one

The information supplied therein is based on my own personal knowledge and/or has been supplied by my attorneys or other agents and is therefore provided as required by law. The information contained in the foregoing document is true, except as to the matters, which were provided by my attorneys or other agents, and as to those matters, I am informed and believe that they are true.

I declare, under the penalty of perjury under the laws of the state that the foregoing is true and correct.

    Answered . You are confirming, under penalty of perjury, that the information included in your responses is truthful, and that you have personal knowledge of such. You should definitely consult with your attorney before signing anything. If you don't have one yet, GET ONE! Good luck.
