Re: File Appearance or Jury Demand answer or plead
You file the paperwork as an acknowledgment that you are in the case.
If you do not file the paperwork, a judgment will eventually be entered against you.
The plaintiff can then collect on whatever amount they asked for, or do anything the judge allows.
This could cause serious problems for you unless you are judgment proof.
