I am the defendant in a breach of contract case. I have been deposed & am going to mediation in 1 month without my lawyer. I don’t believe I owe the plaintiff anything. The contract is poorly worded. The plaintiff told many lies that I had paperwork to prove otherwise. I have just found out that the plaintiff was part of some SEC companies that he was either the director or a board member. His corporation was revoked and trading of his stocks were suspended by SEC for defrauding investors. He has class action lawsuits against his companies. His son is barred by SEC for defrauding investors using one of the plaintiffs companies. Can I send copies of this info to the plaintiffs lawyer so that this can be used in the case or will I need a lawyer to do this for me?
You need not send it to the plaintiff's lawyers. It can be used to attack the credibility of the plaintiff.
