Cape Coral, FL asked in Small Claims for Florida

Q: Do I file a motion to dismiss or strike or just ask to disregard uploaded e filed dockets? Self representation

I have a small claims pretrial hearing, and there have been dockets that were electronically uploaded through the e file service my county provides, and it duplicated ATTACHMENTS/EXHIBITS to PLEADING. also, two dockets failed to upload all the pages of the ATTACHMENTS/EXHIBITS to PLEADING. I am the Plaintiff representation MYSELF. Do I have file a “motion to strike pleadings due to redundancy? Or can I request to the pretrial judge at hearing to dismiss the duplicated pleadings. I just want to make sure the judge is not confused, and if a trial date set, the full trial judge isn’t annoyed and confused too.

A: I suggest you bring this up at the pretrial hearing. It is extremely doubtful that redundancy or judicial confusion will be a problem. If some of the attachments are missing, ask that the defendant be ordered to supplement them.
