    Michael’s Answer

    No, you don't have to consent to providing your social security number, but they don't have to give you a position. The SSN is needed for tax withholding; Other info is probably needed to verify that you are who and what you say you are. But you can refuse to provide the info if you are willing to give up on the positionl

  • What does "with emphasis" mean in a court document?

    I always see "with emphasis" in my court documents and I don't exactly know when and how it is used.

    Michael’s Answer

    I have no idea what that might mean. Context is important to determine if it means anything. It is probably just extra language having no real meaning in a court pleading.

  • Does a dismissal in Federal Court pursuant to Title 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e) have a res judicata effect if I refile in state court?

    I filed a case in federal court proceeding in froma papuris. My claims were dismissed pursuant to Title 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e). “In 1996, 28 U.S.C. § 1915(d) was redesignated as § 1915(e).” Hughes v. Lott, 350 F.3d 1157, 1162, n.3 (11th Cir. 2003). “...

    Michael’s Answer

    If the dismissal is not on the merits, then it is not res judicata, but I don't know the statutory references in your post. Talk to a lawyer about it, or do the research yourself. This looks like the 3rd time you have posted on this issue.
