In the computer age, 99% of all documents are created and stored electronically. Today, all litigants, pro se or otherwise, have a duty to request and disclose responsive electronic evidence in their cases. If you have a consumer debt case, debt collectors will seek to turn to the courts to squeeze money out of the already struggling poor and middle class.
Lawsuits to collect on bad debts have to be filed in the state where a debtor lives. And, location has become the new tool for debt collectors as some jurisdictions are more lenient than others. Large debt buyers use the relaxed rules of small claims and municipal courts to file suits that obtain little documentation of the debts they seek to collect. These courts allow for quick judgments when legally unsophisticated defendants fail to contest the suits. Once the debt collectors obtains a judgment, they use the full weight of the legal system to enforce it primarily by seizing assets, garnishing wages, and freezing bank accounts.
