    Yes, a conviction for PC 646.9 should be expungeable. If charged as a felony, request that the court reduce the charge from a felony to a misdemeanor and then dismiss the case. Good luck.

  2. Who is responsible for repair/replacement of appliances present at move-in & not damaged by tenant when lease does not specify?

    Counselor Chen is correct. Those appliances are the property of the landlord and as such, he/she is responsible for their maintenance and repair, unless you misuse or otherwise cause the damage or need for repair through conduct which goes beyond average use. After years of normal use, typical wear and tear causes appliances to fail, and it is the landlord who is financially responsible for the appliance's repair or replacement. He/she owns them after all, and you are only paying him/her to...

    I don't think you have much chance of vacating this Summary Judgment. Your mistake was hiring a non-attorney to do the job of an attorney. A para-legal is a person who works for and subsidiary to an attorney and cannot legally (or competently apparently) perform the work of a licensed attorney. That is why he did not respond to the discovery requests that ultimately sacked your case. Further, he should not have filed the Motion to Quash either and could potentially be liable for practicing...

    You own a business yet cannot afford an attorney. Curious. That narrows your options down to either representing yourself (not a good idea), taking a default judgment (horrible idea) or digging deep and doing a cost/benefits analysis as to whether it is more burdensome to pay a skilled and knowledgeable defense attorney to represent you or lose this case.

  5. Are there any specific legal protections provided by prefacing a discussion with the word "hypothetically?"

    Regardless of the facts, if the "person of interest's" statements were used against him or her in court, he or she would claim that because the words were stated to be "hypothetical" they therefore do not reflect any intent on his or her part or even accurately reflect his or her actual position on the matter.

    It seems you are trying to defend against a credit card or credit account debt in pro per, correct? You probably read on some debtors' website that you could defend the case yourself. The site probably had a long list of questionable "defenses" you could assert and you threw them in lock, stock, and lot. Happens all the time. Responding to discovery requests is tricky business and you are now in the unenviable position of trying to figure out whether an answer to a single Request for...

    No. That would be ridiculous to have to get a real estate license just to rent property you own. Property managers must be licensed RE agents, but that puts no such requirement on the owner of a commercial property who simply wants to lease it to someone else.
