[Maybe not, after that response! Figuring out what’s next from here… I AM OPEN TO SUGGESTIONS!!

“Re scheduling, our responsive pleading is due in 30 days so the meet-and-confer should occur before that.
We can satisfy that meet-and-confer either by email, telephone or Zoom call as you proposed.
We will not agree to recording.
I don’t know what any of the other counsel are doing and I need to focus on my own defense.
The pleading issues would need to be resolved at the outset before evidentiary issues or mediation or trial.
Ideally you will locate an attorney to handle the case for you.
Thank you again.”
I DO NOT KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS:
“Your motion date is ____10/26/21________ at _09:00______am in department __S22______.
Parties are required to file their civil motion and submit the filing fees within five (5) court days from the date of receipt of the confirmation email.”
Is that referencing your Answer/Pleadings, that is supposed to come after Meet and Confer, not before?
By copy to all known defense firms and defendants who have not, as yet, provided contact information for defense counsel, I am suggesting that all parties respectfully respect that I am an American with Disabilities, and further discrimination and abuse that cost me my home and health will not be tolerated.
