Defendants requested case move from sc to civil. They then answered our complaint & brought counter claim against us. Can we add more items on our response? Thinking to add all the late payment fees. If we can, assume they will have additional time to respond, to new items? What is likelihood of judge allowing those fees$100 a month, since we didn't try to get at the time they were late?
You need a lawyer's help. If the time frame is right, you should be able to file an amended complaint but if it is late, you will need a motion.
Do a Google Search of MCR (Michigan Court Rule) 2.118; seeking legal counsel is strongly recommended, especially if the other party is represented by an attorney.
