    I cannot tell from your post what motion it is you are trying to file...or if you are simply trying to reply to an opposition to a motion to quash. If you file a motion in civil court, you generally must provide a memorandum of points and authorities in support of that motion when you file the motion. If you are replying to an opposition you need to simply submit your reply paperwork...usually five court days before the hearing. As far as a judge "frowning" upon your filing...he/she probably...

    This does not sound normal. You should beagle to speak directly with the attorney handling your file. It sounds like they're having paralegals or other non-attorneys speak with you. Ask the next person you speak with for their state bar number. If they don't provide it you may want to find new counsel. Good luck with this.

    As long as the debt is one that qualifies for being discharged then bankruptcy might discharge the debt. You cannot, for example, discharge an obligation for fraud. Speak to a bankruptcy attorney to see of your particular situation can be discharged. Same goes for whether you qualify for bankruptcy based on your assets and income. Good luck.

    As my colleagues note, you need to file an answer. Ms. James provides you with certain forms you can use if the complaint contains certain causes of action, but generally you need to answer on pleading paper. I would caution you against representing yourself. A lawsuit is very serious and not something you should take lightly. The rules concerning litigation are complicated and exacting. Contact an attorney immediately to discuss your case. Many (including my law firm) will provide you with a...

  5. My husbands last paycheck, showed a $5,000 cash advance, when he never received a cash advance , he received a BONUSof $5,000

    The facts concerning your question are a bit confusing, but I will take a shot to see if I can help out. First off, if the amount is for a bonus then that is what it should state...it should not classify it as an advance. An "advance" suggests the employer will deduct the amount from your husbands pay at some point in the future...so your husband should be wary of his employers practice and make a written record to document the fact that he is not receiving advances. I would send a letter to...

    You could have filed a request for entry of default back when the response was late. Since the defendant has replied, however, that is no longer an option. Your attorney probably had a very good reason for not seeking the default and you should ask him/her why that route was not taken. Good luck with your case!

  7. Can I file a motion for reconsideration regarding a summary judgment ruling?

    Ms. McCall provides an excellent answer that you should seriously consider. In a nutshell, you "can" file a motion for reconsideration...but just because you can doesn't necessarily mean you "should." You will probably be fighting an uphill battle with such a motion, and you may end up paying sanctions if it does not work. You should consult with an attorney before proceeding with any motion for reconsideration and I do not recommend you do it on your own.

    You should speak with an attorney as soon as you can about this. Have him/her review your non compete agreement, because those are often times not enforceable in California. Whether yours is will depend upon your particular situation. As far as responding to the e-mail, you have obligation to respond but you might want to do so to try and resolve the situation. Before you do, however, I would speak with an attorney first to figure out where you stand. If it's feasible, you should also engage an...

  9. What are my options in this situation? Is there anything faster than a small claims court, I will be moving out of state.

    If you do not have time for small claims, then you might want to contact a consumer fraud attorney to write a demand letter on your behalf. As one of my colleagues said, the cost should be less than $500.00 to do this. If the seller knew the vehicle was a salvage title then he/she had a duty to disclose it. Most law firms specializing in auto sale fraud claims (including mine) will provide you with a free consultation to let you know where you stand and present you with some options. However...

  10. Can a pro se litigant ask for sanctions?

    Yes you can seek sanctions. The sanctions would essentially be what Mr. Chen outlined in his answer and would not include attorneys fees...nevertheless you could seek sanctions against the party providing incomplete answers and should probably do so to create a clear record of the other side's refusal to adhere to the Discovery Act. Good luck!
