Whether you can or cannot "reopen" the discrimination claim depends on the facts and circumstances. Meet with a employment discrimination lawyer in a confidential office setting to determine if you may be able to get a second bite at the apple. I changed the category to Discrimination so that other colleagues may weigh in.See question
I never answered before. The letter says "If judgement resulted from default, I may have it vacated by making motion to court. I'm on SSDI what kind of lawyer should I see, or can I do this myself?
This is not a DIY project. A private litigation lawyer or pro bono legal services lawyer (provided you qualify) should be able to help you investigate and then move to vacate the default judgment. In order to vacate a judgment in New Jersey the courts require a showing of excusable neglect and meritorious defense to the underlying action. Do not ignore the letter. Good luck in getting this resolved.See question
I received a large volume of legal documents that are in disarray. What would be the most effective and logical way to organize the documents? i.e., what categories, sub-categories, etc. are the most efficient way? Thank you.
The best way is the way you are most likely to find the documents. Without knowing more, I would start by creator/sender, type of document, and subject matter.See question
A lot of medical bills with credit card debt. Not behind in anything but not making progress. The medical really put me under. I am behind paying my medical bills though.
Typically I've seen many folks take on new auto financing before filing for bankruptcy relief. Presumably you intend to reaffirm the debt through the chapter 7 bankruptcy case if you qualify. That said, it is hard to offer what amounts to hypothetical advice in your particular situation without a confidential sit down meeting at which all factors are considered and evaluated, including your income, assets, liabilities and cash flow. Meet with a local bankruptcy attorney to discuss the pros and cons of taking on new debt.See question
One of the defendants (defendant #2) in my breach of contract and harassment case filed a motion for a "more definite statement" (miscellaneous relief). The motion was filed on 05/11/2017. "Submit Date" is 06/08/2017. The judge has not yet made a ...
The prospective relief expected to be granted by the court in connection with the unopposed motion for a more definite statement will certainly inform your next steps.Either now or at that point it may be wise to obtain the assistance of an experienced New York trial lawyer to help you compose the revised pleading.See question
Two months ago, I gave my brother a gift of $2,500 when he was in need. Now he has a job and I don't. Can I revoke the gift and require him to pay it back to me?
No. You completed a gift without condition. But he's your brother so there are likely other ways he can "repay" you in cash or in kind.See question
A case is dismissed without prejudice in Texas do to lack of jurisdiction, how long after the dismissal can the case be refiled in a proper district, mainly SDNY. (trademark infringement) What would be the statue of limitations if any.
This question has already been asked and answered. Confer in confidence with a New York trademark litigator because any statue of limitation would relate to the trademark infringement under federal law, not the dismissal without prejudice for filing in an improper district.See question
For example say a physical therapist has a complaint in one state that is still under investigation, he is applying for a licensure in another discipline. Is he required to report a complaint that is under investigation when applying for a licensu...
You should meet with an attorney and discuss your particular question and history in a confidential office setting. Every state has different rules and requirements. Typically, however, it is reasonable to expect that the second state will want applicants to disclose any pending complaints or investigations in another state. I changed the category from Litigation to Consumer Protection.See question
I have a breach of contract case in a business venture, the defendant is being asked for corporate documents in this business venture which is currently operational and profitable. The lawyer is claiming the defendant does not have to produce co...
I agree with Mr. Goodman. If defendant continues to object after you serve your subpoena and make your case to defendant's attorney, then consider making a motion to compel discovery or preclude evidence consistent with the CPLR and the judge's chambers rules. You will likely improve your odds if you engage an experienced litigator to advocate on your behalf.See question

Speak with your assigned lawyer regarding service to plaintiff of discovery requests and defendant's demand for a bill of particulars. Any further non-response and lack of cooperation by plaintiff should be addressed to the assigned judge at the next scheduled pre-trial conference.See question
