Cullari's Accusations Misleading and False
Friday, June 1, 20112—Anna Little replied today to the Cullari Campaign's squalid attack:
Every citizen has the right to seek legal redress if they believe they have been wronged. The other party also has the right to defend themselves, and be judged by a judge or a jury of their peers. The pending legal action is an allegation. There is no final money judgement in the matter. It has just come to my attention that Default has been entered, which is a technicality which occurs when one party doesn't answer on time. I have filed an Answer and have sought legal counsel to defend me. I intend to seek to vacate default, defend myself, and make motion for the complaint to be dismissed as we deem appropriate after thorough review of the matter.
Attorney Jim Bennett adds the following:
I just received this e-mail. The passage about a judgment having been entered against Anna's firm is an outright misstatement. I obtained the court's docket sheet, and I learned that a default has been requested against the law firm, but not against Anna, who filed an answer. Anna could very easily move to amend her answer to include the LLC, and then there would be no default at all. ...
The last development before the request for entry of default was the dismissal without prejudice of Anna's motion for summary judgment. All that means is that there are triable issues of fact. Anna can still prevail on the merits.
The bottom line is that there has been no judgment. The case is ongoing.
