The federal judge decided he didn't want the case. He didn't say why. It's several years into the case and also ruled on several motions. Does the Federal Judge have to give a basis and a statute for the reason for recusal if neither party asked t...

I had a civil case where I was the plaintiff dismissed for failure to timely serve process. But, before the attorneys filed a motion to dismiss, they filed for a demand for costs under NRS 18.130, http://www.leg.state.nv.us/NRS/NRS-018.html#NRS018...
No. The Demand for Costs in Nevada is not a motion.See question

Hypothetically, since lawmakers are sworn in to defend their citizens constitutional rights, is it possible for a class action lawsuit to appear if they pass a bill that blatantly limits them? For reference, Arizona bill proposed by state lawmake...
The best way to attack unconstitutional legislation is to bring a declaratory relief action - possibly by suing an official charged with enforcing the legislation. You would also likely need pro bono attorneys, such as the ACLU, to serve as the lawyers for such an effort, unless you, or you and a group, are independently wealthy and care enough about the issue to fund it yourself, as there are no money damages or attorney fees in most states for such an effort, even if successful.See question

I am not sure your exact procedural situation is clear from the facts stated in your question; however if you are still in the phase leading up to the actual arbitration, then I agree with Mr. Price.See question
I feel that the settlement that was offered to me is unfair. I realized this after I submitted a signed Consumer Release Form. I now would like to Opt Out of the Settlement and sue the companies myself. Is the legally possible?
As with many things, the answer is: "it depends." We'd need more facts to be more helpful. For example, every class action has a deadline to take action, whether to opt out or file a claim or similar paper. If that deadline has not yet expired in your case, you can try to send in an opt out with a letter explaining that you changed your mind. It would likely then be up to the judge whether to allow you to 'depart'.
In my personal experience, if you beat the deadline it is quite possible the judge will allow the change of mind. If the deadline has expired, that is much less likely, although still possible.
Before you take any further action you should consult carefully with a local attorney regarding the practicality of individually pursuing the defendant companies if you successfully opt out. That is rarely economically feasible, but could be in your case.
I gave them a response in writing before the 20 days after gettting the "papers" at my home from a person. I also received this "3-day notice), 4 AFTER the date they wrote on the paper. I dont know where to go from here
