    There is a difference between "public record" and "discoverable." With very few exceptions, a deposition transcript will probably be discoverable in a related civil or criminal matter. Since you are talking about job loss, I'm assuming there could be a wrongful termination civil case filed. If so, the employment lawyer will probably get a hold of this deposition.

    Ouch. Your lawyer failed to communicate that he was spanked by the Court by way of monetary fines. I echo everyone else's opinion above.

    Did Sears obtain a court judgment and are now trying to collect on that debt? If so, then the statute of limitations will be different (Judgments last for 10 years and are easily renewed for the life of the judgment debtor).

    The above answer is correct. I would add that the insurance carrier should start paying your PD advances once TD ends. However, sometimes they don't. You should definitely get a lawyer if you don't have one already because of the magnitude of your total disability lasting over two years.

  10. CA landlord tenant laws, security deposit for painting

    Your landlord may not deduct for "ordinary wear and tear." If you caused no damage to the paint, then they cannot lawfully take this money out of your security deposit. If they refuse to be reasonable with you, then I would advise you to bring them to small claims court.
