Debt collection lawsuit
(Richland County, South Carolina)
I live in South Carolina. On Oct. 1, 2010, an attorney filed a summons and complaint against me for Palisades Collection about an alleged debt from First USA. I answered the S & C and the attached Discovery, I then filed my own Discovery. After 45 days and 4 days after receiving notice from the court to chose a mediator, the Plaintiff's attorney sent answers to my discovery -- in a nutshell used some "can" language to object but then listed each request and stated that they had sent for documents from the original creditor. On the same day I received answer to discovery, I filed a motion to strike affidavit as hearsay, now I am not sure what to do with the so called Discovery sent by the Plaintiff's attorney. I discovered they have no documents but a verification from an officer of Palisades. Now what? Do I have any recourse? Sounds like they will not provide documents to me until the actual trial if any and I do not trust the mediation process?
