  • Motion to Dismiss?

    Manuel’s Answer

    First, you state simply that the plaintiff's attorney has a crashed computer and has lost information. You say nothing about what he has actually done in the litigation or any motion he might have filed in this regard. Therefore, I don't even see how it is relevant to anything. You can get all his pleadings from the court docket online. And certainly it cannot be the basis for your motion to dismiss . Secondly, the motion to dismiss, properly based on legal reasons, is obviously coming from you, the defendant, and I can only say that it generally does not require a special set hearing, so you should be able to set it for regular motion calendar a lot sooner. If you are confident you will win your motion, then by all means get it heard. Otherwise, follow the advice above and don't be in such a hurry to help the plaintiff press their case.

  • How to response mortgage foreclosure deceased parent?

    Manuel’s Answer

    As advised by others here, you need to meet with an attorney (perhaps virtually) to review the details. Sure, you could ignore it and let the property go in a foreclosure sale, but as Ms. Golant points out, that may affect your credit and would be a public judgment against you. Naturally, if you want to keep the property, sell it yourself, or get any surplus proceeds from the foreclosure sale, you will need an attorney to help you.
