The defendant responded to my complaint with a notice of removal and an answer with a general denial and 15 affirmative defenses

Asked over 2 years ago - Oxnard, CA

After filing a motion to remand to the state court within 30 days, should I file the answer of denial to all the affirmative defences at the federal court or wait until it is remanded to the state court? Is there a deadline for filing the answer of denials to the affirmative defenses?

    Answered . There is no such thing as an answer of denials to affirmative defenses. Such response is not necessary.

    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . You do not need to file any denial of the affirmative defenses.
    Once the case is removed, your only options are to try and get it remanded, or just litigate in the Federal Court.
