I recently was served a 20 day Summons and Complaint from a collection agency for a District Court lawsuit. The collection agency is suing me personally for past medical bills for services delivered to my spouse in Washington State. My spouse is on my medical insurance plan through my employer, but isn't named as a defendant. In fact, I am the only named defendant. The Complaint repeatedly states that I received services for which I owe and list the services, amounts and dates. I never received medical services on any of those dates. Can that be my response? Would such a response be effective in delaying the lawsuit?
I will be filing for Chapter 7 within the next couple of months and I am just seeking to delay judgment until I can file.
