(4:21-cv-00985)

District Court, E.D. Texas

DEC 13, 2021 | REPUBLISHED BY LIT: DEC 14, 2021

New foreclosure case. Bookmark for updates.

Plaintiff has accumulated significant equity in the Property, which is now valued at approximately $220,000. The payoff on Plaintiff’s Loan is approximately $22,000, and her monthly mortgage payment is only about $479. Plaintiff faces the loss of her homestead and the nest egg she has accumulated over the years if Defendant is allowed to foreclose. Plaintiff has attempted to make payments, but Defendant will not accept them.

ORDER AND ADVISORY

Before the Court is the above styled and numbered case.

The Court has received Defendant’s Notice of Removal (Dkt. #1) and therefore enters the following Order and Advisory.

The Federal Rules of Civil Procedure do not require parties to replead following removal.

Fed. R. Civ. P. 81(c)(2).

However, the parties should note the different pleading standards in state and federal court. In particular, Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 8(b) mandates that a defending party admit or deny each allegation against it.

Also, Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 9 sets forth heightened pleading requirements for certain matters.

In the interest of efficient management of its docket, the Court ORDERS the parties to replead as necessary to comply with the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and the Court’s Local Rules.1

Plaintiff’s amended complaint is due thirty (30) days from the date of this order.

Defendant’s amended answer is due twenty (20) days from receipt of the amended complaint.

Any prior deadline for Defendant’s answer shall be extended to the date set by this order.

The Court also directs the parties’ attention to Local Rule CV-7.

While the parties should be familiar with all the Federal and Local Court Rules, the Court points to this rule specifically

1 The Court’s Local Rules are available through the Court’s website, at http://www.txed.uscourts.gov.

as it renders moot all motions urged prior to removal.

Accordingly, the Court will only consider motions reurged in this Court.

In the event that Plaintiff files a timely motion for remand, the deadlines set forth in this order are suspended pending resolution of the motion.

If the Court denies the motion to remand, Plaintiff’s amended complaint will be due 30 days from the date the order is signed.

IT IS SO ORDERED.

Laws In Texas first started as an independent investigative blog about the Financial Crisis and how the Banks and Government are colluding against the citizens and homeowners of the State of Texas, relying upon a system of #FakeDocs and post-crisis legal precedents, specially created by the Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit to foreclose on homeowners around this great State. We are not lawyers. We do not offer legal advice. That stated, LIT's Blog has grown tremendously during the three or so years it has been operating and our reach is now nationwide as we expand via our micro-blogs in various states. Join us as we strive to bring back justice and honor to our Judiciary and Government employees, paid for by Citizens.
