    Agreed, you cannot ask questions of multiple witnesses at once, but you can schedule them all for the same chunk of time. I have done this in the past where I have had two or three individuals who would have given relatively short deposition testimony. I scheduled each deposition for an hour, and had the deponents come in one right after the other. You will still need to order each transcript individually, but you will save on court reporter fees, travel fees, attorney's fees (in the event you...

    Discovery is very open ended. Absent privileged information, almost anything can be considered relevant and discoverable. Normally the process is to object to the question and then answer it, thus preserving the objection. Because you did not answer, they can move to compel your answer, which could open you up to the possibility of sanctions being levied against you by the court. Just because you believe something is not relevant, doesn't mean the information is not relevant to the other side....

    This is the most used, and least accepted defense that pro se defendants use.. I would not recommend using it unless the note truly was forged. If the note was forged, that should be an affirmative defense. Without passing judgment on your case, if the bank loaned you money and you signed the mortgage, your argument that the note is a forgery will not go very far.

    Rather than debate which area of the law this belongs under, or whether you have a cause of action, let's assume you do, for the sake of argument. Assume you have a valid, enforceable contract that was created. Now assume that the people who "adopted" your dog breached that contract. Now let's assume your chances of winning at 100%. Now let's assume that your contract had no provision regarding attorneys' fees being awarded in a subsequent lawsuit. It will cost you hundreds of dollars to...

    If he was driving negligently, then he might be liable for your injuries. But you need to ask yourself if you are willing to sue your friend. The car insurance company is not responsible for your injuries.

  6. "Strike From Case Management Call - Allowed" means what re my Complaint to Foreclose Mortgage?

    All it means is that the case was taken off the "Case Management Call" and will proceed to judgment. The Case Management Call is simply a way to make sure that plaintiffs are making progress with the lawsuit (that the complaint has been served, etc). The fact that the case was stricken from the call means that the judge was satisfied with the progress of the case.

    So long as you did not sign any documents obligating you to pay on her behalf, such as a guaranty, then you are not responsible in any way for her bills. The "in care of" is simply a way of delivering the mail to her, as that is most likely the only address they have on file for your mother.

    If the bank can prove that the property is vacant, then they are entitled to immediate possession, otherwise the usual time is 30 days. If you show up to the hearing, however, I have seen judges extend that time to 45 and even 60 days in some cases. And no, you are not responsible for paying rent during that time. You are technically in possession of the premises until the order specifies that the bank is entitled to possession. Even then, you can remain in the home until the sheriff...

    That depends on the document and the intent behind the falsity. Also depends on whether the document was verified or had its truth attested to.
