In this article I am happy to provide you the Top 5 Articles of 2014 on my blog.  Next to the title of each article I will give you how many times the article was read this past year:

#4 – Case Killer: How to Defeat a Motion for Summary Judgment (6,678)

Almost without exception junk debt buyers will file a Motion for Summary Judgment in their collection lawsuits.  This is a document that essentially says “hey judge, we don’t need a trial, just tell us we win”.  You must file a response to this motion or you will lose your case.  In this article I discuss some of the strategies to beating the Motion for Summary Judgment.
