  • How long does a Federal Magistrate Judge have to respond to an In Camera Review.

    Please be aware that this is strictly a Social Security Disability Appeals Case in Federal District Court. Thank-You in advance for answering my legal question.

    Surprisingly federal judges may work on their own schedule. You can technically file a motion for mandamus if they are not doing there job, in order to make them act, but don't. try this with a lawyer.

  • After dismissing my complaint the NV State Bar has again denied me access to response received from the attorney. What do I do ?

    Also, I have been denied access to any/all paperwork which validates the State Bars ruling. What can I do to access? Must I file a suit against the State Bar? A complaint with The Supreme Court?

    Howard’s Answer

    This sounds unlikely, the State Bar should have no trouble giving you the response to a complaint filed by you against your attorney. Put your request in writing and send it to the State Bar, I am sure they will respond.
