    Craig’s Answer

    If the settlement was put on the record and so ordered by the court, it is unlikely you will be able to vacate it. You should consult with an attorney as soon as possible to discuss possible remedies.

  • File deposition before trial

    I'm the plaintiff and would like to know....the defendant requested an oral deposition which has been completed. I have a copy of the deposition but the defendant's lawyer still has not e-filed the deposition to the courts yet, I have already e-fi...

    Craig’s Answer

    I'll assume this is a state court matter in which case there is no requirement (unless by local or part rule) that deposition transcripts be efiled. The county clerks office should have someone in charge of efiling that can let you know if the transcript needs to be filed.

  • My ex-girlfriend owes me money for a car loan, she moved out to Nassau County, I live in Suffolk where do I file a small claim?

    No written document just an oral agreement, loan is for about $5,600.

    Craig’s Answer

    Putting aside your proof issues, the amount in controversy exceeds small claims jurisdiction. You would have to bring the action in either city or district court or in supreme court.

    Craig’s Answer

    Contact a lawyer and the board of health. You need to have testing done to determine the level of mold in the unit. Also, without a doctor, even if you've been adversely affected, it won't mean much from a legal standpoint. If you need medical attention, get it.
