Limited Actions – Prejudgment Information Sheet And Answer Form

limited-actions

PREJUDGMENT INFORMATION SHEET AND ANSWER FORM MAY ONLY BE USED AS AN ANSWER TO A PETITION OR AMENDED PETITION IN AN LM CASE – IT CANNOT BE USED TO FILE A MOTION OR RESPOND TO A MOTION OR FOR ANY OTHER PURPOSE

REVISED PRE-JUDGMENT PROCEDURE

REVISED MEMO FROM THE LIMITED ACTIONS DEPARTMENT

Per Administrative Order 2020-09, all plaintiffs in limited actions (LM) cases must include two additional documents with the Petition and Summons and Alias Summons to be served upon defendants. One of the documents to be sent has changed: there is a revised Memo From the Limited Actions Department. The revised Memo is available on the Court’s website. Plaintiffs must send the revised Memo with all petitions filed after 12/14/20.

The revised Memo explains the Court’s revised Pre-Judgment Procedure. Defendants in LM cases will NOT APPEAR IN PERSON FOR PRE-JUDGMENT MATTERS. Instead, defendants will simply fill out and return the blank Pre-Judgment Information Sheet and Answer form to the Court. If defendant does not timely return the form, default judgment will be entered. If defendant returns the form and agrees to the entry of judgment, judgment will be entered. If defendant returns the form and denies the allegations, defendant must explain why in the space provided on the form. Once the Court receives the form, the case will be set for a pre-trial hearing or for trial. The parties will receive a Notice of Hearing for the pre-trial or trial and must appear as instructed for that later court date.
