A lot of times when people are sued, they have this knee jerk reaction to explain absolutely everything they possibly can and in their response of pleading to the court. So they detail every single conversation and nuance and fact that they can think about, but sometimes, forget to actually deny what the person who is suing them is complaining about.
Unfortunately, this can sometimes lead to very unfavorable results for defendants. And sometimes, the person that is suing that person can win because the person that they’re suing didn’t ultimately deny what they were complaining about.
So it’s important when answering to make sure that you’re answering the actual complaint and not trying to go off on facts that are ultimately irrelevant.
