Where do I file my letter of response to landlord? I mailed my response same day in overnight mail. Do I have to file anything to the court as well? I responded in a letter format, is that sufficient?
First of all, you've given us no underlying facts. That being said, you shouldn't respond to the landlord's 3-Day Notice to Cure or Quit in court unless the landlord has filed an unlawful detainer complaint against you in court. You would know if you were sued by the landlord because you would have been served with the summons and the complaint. If the landlord chooses to sue you for unlawful detainer, then you can use the letter as evidence of you want to, along with other facts and evidence. As to your right to sue, sure you can go ahead and sue the landlord, but I'm sure the landlord will sue you anyway unless you cure whatever the landlord said you should cure. Again, it's impossible to give you competent general suggestions without knowing the facts of your case.
