    Mr. Chen is correct in that "et al" is a Latin word for "and others". When you say "1 case, 6 complaints", do you mean one (1) case number and six (6) causes of action in one case number? If there are 6 complaints, you will have 6 court case numbers. Does the dismissal dismiss "all causes of action"? Also, what is the court date for? Is it an Order to Show Cause Re Dismissal? If it is a Request for Dismissal (form CV-110), then there is no need for a court date. You should consult with...

    To subpoena employment records, you would need to need to have a Notice to Consumer issued first and then have the subpoena for records served on the employer. You actually do not need to file the subpoena with the court, but only the clerk of the court, a judge, or an attorney of record may issue a subpoena. Consult with an attorney or go to the Court's Self Help department. Good luck.

    Who currently has the Quitclaim Deed? It is difficult to properly answer your question without further information. You may want to consult with an attorney. Technically, since your son signed the deed and went to a notary public to notarized it, the document is binding. If there is foul play, then your son can bring a quiet title action as well as cancellation of the instrument, etc. Then again, if the document is recorded and your son is in possession and he never tendered (or give) to...

    Once you put a settlement on the record, you cannot change your mind unless there were misrepresentations made to you and you relied on those representations to enter into the settlement agreement. Some judges may order sanctions against you if you back out of a settlement agreement that was put on the record and enforce the settlement without requiring the other party to bring a motion to enforce the settlement.

    You should consult an immigration attorney privately. With that said, you can try applying for a waive. There are currently three different ways or grounds to apply for a waiver: (1) good faith marriage ground (if your divorce is final at the time of filing); (2) extreme hardship (to the alien if deported to their original country); or (3) extreme cruelty (proving that the non-citizen alien received physical, emotional, or financial abuse from their spouse) .

    I agree. You have to amend your exhibit lists if the exhibits are not for impeachment purposes. You should send a copy over to opposing counsel before trial.

    I agree with the others to be truthful. What does your brother's Birth Certificate say? If he was born in Taiwan, you can probably order a certified copy of the birth certificate unless his birth was not registered/recorded.
