I was served in nov 2010 by JDB. Also listed was "John Doe" as my husband. I filed MY reply, response to interrogations, and a arbitration date was set. 1 week before the arbitration dat, JDB states they never served my husband and arbitration date was moved back 10 days to allow for him to be served. He was served July 1st (still as john doe) and we had arbitration on July 5th. He did not file a response with the clerk of courts but we were both listed as defendants and awarded judgement in our favor (in both of our legal names). Now we get a copy of JDB's request for default against my husband in the mail. How is that possible?
Thanks in advance for any helpful info,,,

I think you should consult a lawyer regarding this matter. An experienced lawyer can give you the best advice on this issue.

Nelly...attorneys are expensive. There is a lot they can do for themselves.

Do you have a copy of the arbitration transcripts? You won the arbitration? Then you should have some documentation...did you both follow the terms of the arbitration? Was it binding or non binding? Please give us more information.

The arbitration award does state the defendants are awarded judgment and lists both my husband's name and myself. I called the clerk of courts today and they stated no default against my husband has been filed. Maybe they only sent this request for default to us???? This "law firm" provided no response to my request for discovery documents and is just hoping to catch a break and win some way. At arbitration the only document the lawyer brought with him was a affidavit signed by some "employee" of the credit card.

I emailed my arbitrator stating that I received this letter last Friday evening....Wednesday I receive a copy of his reaffirment of the award to both me and my husband. The arbitrator also sent copies to the superior court and to the "plaintiff" and his (jdb) lawyer. He also made a point of stating my husband was not served properly and the request for default against him was bogus. Oh how I love his letter!!! I should frame it :) thanks for all the imput
