    I agree with Mr. Lipschutz. I will add that I was involved in a case where some of the owners were doing just what you are talking about, and the condo association chose not to press the issue. I had another case where the owner, whom I represented, quitclaimed a 1% ownership interest in the property to the tenant (who then became a co-owner), and I drafted an operating agreement under which the tenant paid my client a monthly fee for having sole use of my client's 99% interest. Both of these...

    I agree with the previous responses: the previous cases should be inadmissible if you object to them as being irrelevant. There are exceptions, but this is the general rule.

    You might speak with an attorney on this, but if you came to see me I would not take the case. I think there is a causation problem that will be difficult to overcome. In other words, Lockheed Martin did not directly cause you to get food poisoning. It is questionable how they exacerbated the problem. It sounds to me like one of those things that happens, and there is no recourse. By the way, I just returned from Afghanistan in December--Kandahar mostly. Lovely place.

    You need to speak with an attorney about this. You should have listed all your creditors on your Chapter 13 petition. But the short answer is, you can convert your Chapter 13 to a Chapter 7 by filing a motion with the Court. Under the current law, you have an opportunity for one voluntary conversion.

    You should file a response to the Motion for Summary Judgment and attach an affidavit stating that the debt was repaid. That, alone, should create a genuine issue of material fact which should not be resolved by the judge on summary judgment. If you are in small claims court, the judge will also be the trier of fact. Bottom line, your affidavit disputing the other party's assertions in a case like this should be enough to get you past summary judgment. At trial, if it is your word against...
