After reading NAR Rule 4(e), I am left with the impression that if I need to file a motion with the Discovery office within 45 days of my arbitration hearing, I may not be able to do so because of how I'm reading this rule and what I perceive as t...
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

Plaintiff did not pay his atty resulting in a judge approved retaining lien. How will this affect him getting another lawyer if the case is taken back to court?
The prospective new lawyer will usually count the amount of the retaining lien as a likely deduction from the gross fee that may be recovered. Presuming this is/was a contingent fee case, the new lawyer has to make a judgment call regarding whether he or she is likely to recover at all, and if at all, enough to cover the lien as well as the fee the new lawyer would be entitled to.
We are looking to construct a barn/garage on our property and I don't believe that many of the contractors here hold workers comp insurance. Interestingly, one claims they have it but will not show us proof. We are very concerned that a worker c...
I second all the points made by Mr. Hedge and urge you that not attending to those is a setup for a train wreck if there's an injury or death.See question
what is demourer and is that normal in these case. what happens next. is that before discovery or after. also what if defense cancelled depositions with us plantiffs what does that mean? is that good or bad.
There is no such thing in Nevada as a "demurrer" although there is a very similar thing called a motion to dismiss.
It sure sounds like you need a litigation attorney ASAP if you don't have one.
My ex and/or his attorney recorded our mediation and played snippets of it in family court as evidence in our trial. The judge did not allow it but no other action has been taken. The attorney also knowingly played only a partial statement that ...
Go to the State Bar of Nevada website and find the form for complaining and reporting lawyer misconduct.
Mediations are confidential and privileged - that is a clear ethical violation among other things.

That is much too complicated to discuss on the web. You should immediately seek out an experienced commercial litigation attorney, of which there are many in Las Vegas.

There should be in the Notice materials a description of the process to exclude yourself - opt out - from the class settlement. If you can't find that, call the Settlement Adminstrator, whose contact information should be listed in the Notice, and ask how to opt out.
