I was railroaded into settlement and then the agreement was grossly violated, my own attorney working for the other side. I was prohibited from replacing him by the court. I contacted over 30 attorney and no one would take it on. My attorney in the the state I live in sent a letter to the DOJ agreeing my claims are justified and my due process of law has been violated. I submitted a Memorandum of Law for a Motion to remove the Special Master and then an Opposition to his First and Final Report with recommendations (in ten months). His recommendation is to dissolve, which requires "prompt liquidation" of assets that he admits will be worth much more if the property is leased to allow plan amendment and rezoning the county supervisor of planning wants and will expedite so the property is redeveloped (urbanized). This is set up to assist a limited partner in his 12 year quest to acquire the assets and enrich himself. They are saying I cannot represent myself and this should be dismissed because "I am represented" even though I fired that attorney last October. Only one attorney responded he would "look at it" and he wanted a retainer of $30,000, which we do not have.
I have seen you post this question, in one form or another, five or six times over the last few months. FYI, The answers are not going to change from the first time you posted.
