FIRST AFFIRMATIVE DEFENSE As a first and separate affirmative defense to the complaint, and to all causes of action

contained therein, this answering Defendant is informed and believes and thereon alleges that all other Defendants' claims are barred or diminished under the doctrine of estoppel. SECOND AFFIRMATIVE DEFENSE And a second and separate affirmative defense to the complaint, and to all causes of

action therein, this answering Defendant alleges that all other Defendants' claims are barred from recovery under the equitable doctrine of unclean hands. THIRD AFFIRMATIVE DEFENSE As a third and separate affirmative defense to the complaint, and to all causes of action

contained therein, this answering Defendant alleges that Defendant Sal Akel Silva committed multiple acts of fraud by making changes to the life insurance policy referenced in paragraph 15 of the Complaint and that the changes made to the policy referenced in paragraph 15 of the Complaint are invalid as they were fraudulently obtained. FOURTH AFFIRMATIVE DEFENSE As a fourth and separate affirmative defense to the complaint and to each purported cause

of action contained therein, this answering Defendant alleges that this answering Defendant presently has insufficient knowledge or insufficient information upon which to form a belief as to whether he may have additional, yet un-asserted, affirmative defenses. This answering Defendant therefore reserves the right to assert additional affirmative defenses in the event discovery indicates it would be appropriate. WHEREFORE, this answering Defendant prays for judgment as follows: That the money in question be awarded to Saleh M. Zahran, solely; That the court determine the respective rights and obligations of the parties in connection with the money deposited with the court; That Defendant Sal Akel Silva be ordered to pay all of Plaintiff's costs and attorneys' fees as well as this answering Defendant/Claimants' costs and attorneys' fees;
