    Are you liable? You may be if the woman can show that you were somehow negligent. If the leash truly was clearly visible, and she could have avoided it, then it would seem that you should have a defense. However, there may be other issues and the facts as the woman describes things may be very different. For example, you said some other dogs were not on leashes. Does the city have a leash law? If so, and if the owners were in violation for not having their dogs on a leash, then you could...

    All Oregon courts require attorneys to identify themselves on the pleadings in their local rules. If you are in Federal Court, Local Rule 10 specifies what a lawyer has to do. LR 10-2, for example, requires the first page of every pleading to contain the lawyer's name and address to be placed in the upper left hand corner, one inch from the top of the page. The Uniform Trial Court Rules were first adopted by the state courts in 1985 and were designed to promote the just, speedy and...

  3. How to stop foreclosure in Washington State and force bank to produce the "note"

    You would need $2,500 just to get a case going. Expect to pay $25 - 50k to go through the discovery process to get what you seek. If it is true that Chase does not have the note, then you may want to file for bankruptcy to have the note discharged, which should clear title to the property in your name. I would call the Northwest Justice Project through the Washington State Bar Association. Their services are free. They can help. For example, have you checked your county's land records....

    All I do is unlawful foreclosures. There is an excellent organization for homeowners in your situation. It is called Good Grief America. As to your question, can you stop the foreclosure? There are a number of issues to consider. The first is to get a title report to see who owns the note. It is possible that MERS securitized the note. If so, then you need to make sure that the foreclosing trustee was properly appointed. For example, the bank may have assigned the note to MERS, yet...

    How would you pay a contingency lawyer? If you win, you would get your home, or you would get your HAMP mod. Call the Northwest Justice Project to get some free legal advice through the Washington State Bar and join Good Grief America to get some peer counseling.

  6. In Federal Court can a suit be amended after original complaint has been amended and the opposing party has filed a response?

    You need to get an attorney on board as soon as possible. Since the other side has answered, you are going to have to move to amend the complaint. Typically, attorneys like to use their own forms, so if this is your plan, you need to get the attorney on board sooner than later, especially if you have a pre trial conference coming up. No sense amending, then hiring an attorney who has to move to amend again. Judges hate that sort of thing, especially in federal court. As for the denials,...

    You will need a confidentiality agreement before disclosing your idea. Often times local community colleges or the chamber of commerce may have a local business incubator. See if they will listen to you, and if so, if they would be willing to sign a confidentiality agreement. They may have one that they have used in the past. The agreement will set out what type of information is confidential and the repurcussions of disclosing the information. Usually, this is a liquidated damages...

    What court are you in? If it is federal court, there may be a limit on the number of interrogatories that can be asked. As such, you may be able to object to the undue burden of having to answer so many questions. If you are in state court, check the local court rules to see if there is a limit. If the other side is calling them "amended", they may be trying to get around a limiting rule or order.

    You want to get discovery in a criminal case, then have it explained. Getting information from the government in a criminal case, thankfully, is usually a very simple process. My office has a form letter that we send out asking for the investigator's file. Failure to provide the information can lead to sanctions, including dismissal of the case. Depending on what your attorney charges, it should not take more than an hour to get the information, but it may take a week or more for the...

    I have not heard of this. I am assuming this is a nonjudicial foreclosure of a home. There is a statute that governs. Normally the trustee just sends out notice of the sale date. You should contact the NW Justice Project through the Washington State Bar Association fo see if the statute has been recently amended. They also provide free legal service and can tell you if you have a potential claim for wrongful foreclosure or what your options may be.
