I been sued for small claim court. small claim court has dismissed the case already but plaintiff went to circuit court (appeal). I received a "INTERROG/REQ FOR PROD" from plaintiff (Under Tennessee rule 33 & 34). He requested following things:
1 - my name, date of birth, place where I work, job title, where I lived in last 10 years
Question: Aren't these my personal identify information? Under which privacy law I can decline to provide my date of birth, and last 10 year residential history?
2 - plaintiff has requested to provide him call history or any communication I had with other defendant?
Question: am I obliged to provide it?
Case is about verbal contract. However, there was no verbal contract at all. Plaintiff presented a contract in small claim court with a company where he had put my name without my knowledge and I never provide consent that when he signs the contract with a company, he can put my name on it. Even small claim court judge said, this is illegal and she can send plaintiff to jail for this. However, judge dismissed the case. Under law this is forgery, can I counterclaim for this criminal act if the case is about civil breach of contract? Can I deny to provide him all personal information on the grounds that he already committed forgery.
