Re: Next step

um...get a lawyer perhaps? But since you are probably determined to "do it yourself", you may wish to file interogatories, production requests, requests to admit, or some other miscelaneous motion. You may wish to have depositions. You have some options. If your adversary hires an attorney, most likely you will have to start answering his or her motion practice (ie. Motion to Dismiss, Motion to Strike, etc.) Good luck.
