Does this sound like your topic?
I'm now representing myself (I'm a single, self-employed mother of a toddler) in a Florida suit filed against me by a customer of mine who "stiffed" me $8000, after promising, in writing, to pay (I'm in another state). I called who I thought was still his part-time employer, who then advised me to call so-and-so and "tell him." I didn't know why, but I assumed that calling this guy would help get my money duly owed me. In a panic (and in the same hour I was advised my money wasn't coming), I did call so-and-so. Because I did, my customer who stiffed me (who'd led me to believe, up to the HOUR that the bank was closing, that he was going to wire the money, and then decided not to send it), threatened suit against me, and had his attorney friend e-mail me that I was banned from contacting anyone who might ever know this guy. I filed suit in my state, got a judgment, and, incredibly (because my bank had his information from previous orders) was able to collect. But, when I filed suit here, he went through with his (obviously retaliatory) suit in Florida, for defamation and slander. I then had to hire a Florida attorney, who then got every single penny of what I'd collected.
I had to let him go because I simply did not have the money to keep paying him.
Anyway, I want to file a Request for Dismissal, but have been able to get NOWHERE with the Hillsborough County Bar. I've called and called, left message after message, and have NEVER, EVER gotten a return call. I need to know procedures for doing this in Florida.
Also, after several months of not hearing anything, I recently got a Request for Production, and this jerk (who, by the way, is on the Board of a major Christian organization in Tampa Bay -- formerly as their Executive Director, but now their Treasurer, God forbid) is asking for all of my phone records from 2007 to now, all my bank statements, and all kinds of ridiculous stuff, which is no business of is, and the request is absurd.
Anyway, geez, sorry to ramble. I'm just batting zero here, and I need some assistance. Help!
