I would be ever so grateful if someone would please direct me to an internet source (free) where I could look over some (or one) Answer to Counterclaim examples. I've hours spent in that pursuit to no avail.
Municipal Court pro se Plaintiff with complaint against former employer who has withheld pay earned on a special project (9K). She has filed her Answer and a Counterclaim. My answer to her counterclaim must be filed by 5-19-08. I can't find enough clear instruction on a couple of specifics of its construction; looking at a few examples may answer my questions. Ohio Rules of Court do not satisfy the inquiry.
Consulting an attorney is out of the question due to the expense and time factors.
If anyone around the Cleveland area wants to answer, I'll come detail your car, mow your lawn, waterproof your deck, make your kids balloon animals...
