Winning With California’s Bill of Particulars (PDF & Word Compatible Supplement)
This product provides you everything you need to get from making your demand for a bill of particulars through moving to get evidence excluded and getting the case dismissed in the State of California.
Bill of Particulars
A bill of particulars applies to many claims brought under California law by debt collectors, although it does not apply to account stated. If you have a standard breach of contract claim, for example (as most debt cases do), you can force the debt collector to provide you basic information – just about everything they have – in support of their claim. It isn’t a substitute for discovery, but it is much faster and easier than most discovery. It is, in California, an essential tool in debt defense.
Why it Works
The Bill of Particulars works because debt collectors so rarely have, or are willing to give, the information necessary to win their cases. By filing a request for bill of particulars, you force them to reveal what, if anything, they have. If they don’t give it to you, you can prevent them from using it against you later. And this means that you can prepare better for trial. Or in many cases avoid trial altogether by demonstrating their lack of evidence. It is a very powerful tool available to Californians.
The only difficulty is that you must follow the procedures outlined for it very carefully and precisely. And that’s where we come in.
Our Bill of Particulars pack includes an article explaining the bill of particulars in detail, so you know what you need to do. It also includes samples of the things you will likely need: sample bill of particulars request, sample motion for more extensive bill of particulars, request to exclude evidence not provided in response to request for bill of particulars, etc. It gives you what you need to put this strategy into effect.
