I know Discovery ends on the date that the Response is due. I still have 3 weeks left, but my Discovery is almost all done. I have no idea what is going to happen next. In addition to Answering to some of-and some portions of-paragraphs in my Complaint, Def listed 26 Affirmative Defenses. I could go into Court drunk right now and STILL win against them--that's how lame they are. Do I Demur to the Answer's Affirmative Defenses? Or get assigned a trial date? Or hope the Def. agrees to stipulate to mediation? I want to get a jump on this. How can I verify if his A.D.'s are legitimate? It's like the lawyer went through a pamphlet and used every example of an A.D. given. Some of these are from left field in a highly-plagued non-parallel universe. Still don't know what to do.
