Fighting credit bureaus, creditors and debt buyers

Finally, the appeals court decided my case against Midland, its attorneys and Equifax and

I filed my appeal reply brief on 8/22 last year, can’t believe how long this took!

Docket Text:
FILED MEMORANDUM (MARY M. SCHROEDER, A. WALLACE TASHIMA and MILAN D. SMITH, JR.) The parties shall bear their own costs on appeal. AFFIRMED in part, REVERSED in part, VACATED in part, and REMANDED. FILED AND ENTERED JUDGMENT. [10546690] (GB)

2017-8-16–memorandum

I don’t understand AT ALL why Equifax was dismissed.

The district court did not abuse its discretion in denying Baker’s motion for a discovery extension because Baker failed to establish good cause, or that she was prejudiced by the denial.

That’s INSANE!   I was not allowed to conduct ANY discovery with Equifax, it FAILED to provide its initial disclosures and subsequently I lost my claims against Equifax.   Isn’t EVERYBODY supposed to be able to conduct discovery?  Aren’t initial disclosures MANDATORY?

This memorandum doesn’t even summarize the issues and it does not analyze the facts, but merely presents me with the decision.

I will probably pursue the discovery issue en banc because if I don’t, I won’t be allowed to do ANY discovery back in district court.
