Have you been sued for not paying a bill? The party suing you (the “plaintiff”) is claiming you have breached a contract. Remember, the plaintiff bears the burden of proof and must prove two things: 1) that you owe them at the time they filed the lawsuit, and 2) that the amount they are demanding is correct. There are many reasons that you may not owe them at all (e.g. the statute of limitations has ran, they can’t prove they own the debt, etc..)
