    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.

  3. If I spend all my money defending myself in litigation in California can I file for bankruptcy?

    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.

  4. Is it still possible for me to win my case if the Jude stated that the judgement will be sent through mail

    Sure it's possible. The fact that the judge said his/her decision will come through the mail is no indication on how he/she will decide the matter. Many judges do this so that they can consider things carefully and provide a well reasoned opinion. As for the text messages, if the judge let you talk about them then there is at least a chance that they were considered in making the decision. How much weight the judge attributed to those text messages, however, is anyone's guess. Best of luck to...

    Does the agreement you have state that if one side has to enforce it that the prevailing party gets attorney fees and costs? If so, call an attorney, have him/her review your agreement, and then see if the attorney will file a motion to enforce he settlement on a contingency basis. Depending on the date of the hearing the motion may need to be scheduled by an ex parte motion to shorten time. In any event, you should file a motion to tax costs and explain that the parties settled and agreed to...

    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...

    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!

    It sounds like the dealership did not disclose some known defects with the car before selling it to you. The fact that the problems happened so soon after the purchase is circumstantial evidence of this. It also sounds like the dealer may have sold you a vehicle without passing it through a smog test first. If that is the case, the contract for the sale is illegal. You should speak with a consumer rights attorney as soon as possible to protect yourself. Most attorneys practicing in the area of...

    No. The moving party files his/her moving papers. The responding party files an opposition. Then the moving party can file a reply. After that, both sides simply show up for oral argument. You could move the court for permission to file a sur-reply, but you probably do not have time to do so, and it's probably just as easy to make your arguments when you appear at the hearing. That being said, you should consult with an attorney about this in person so he/she can review your case and see what...
