In a civil action, if a motion is required to be mailed to the opposing party 13 days in advance of the return date, and the motion is mailed outside the 13-day window, is the motion automatically denied?
A agree with my colleague. However, remember the rules are still the rules. Generally it is up to the individual judge to decide. Better to be on time - don't chance it! Good luck.See question
We are NY based. Client is CA based
Most contracts have a paragraph which sets forth which state law governs the contract. If the contract is silent on this issue, the answer to your question is not all that clear cut. Basically, the answer is - it depends on several things. If you are drafting a contract or if you are in a dispute involving a contract, it's best to consult an attorney. Good luck to you.See question

This contract certainly seems a bit extreme to say the least. I can easily understand why your friend is upset. Tell your friend and her parents to consult with an attorney to see if there is some sort of legal action that could be taken against the coach and / or the school district. An attorney will need additional facts from your friend to make that determination. Good luck to your friend.See question
The Nursing Home that my Deceased Dad was in after having a sudden stroke is trying to get a judgement against me stating that I was his POA & I should not have accepted yrly checks from him for my two children & myself. I did not sign any papers...
I completely agree with my colleague. There's a lot of case law out there on these issues. Make an appointment with an attorney to discuss the situation. After you present all the facts to your attorney, she will be in a position to provide you with the correct advice on how to deal with the nursing home and the situation.
Don't wait until the nursing home gets a judgment against you. The time to consult an attorney is now before that happens.
Good luck to you!
