I filed 14 claim complaint against 10 Ds in state court. Opposing counsel removed to federal court, and filed motion to dismiss. I also filed a motion to amend complaint (had already filed amended complaint in state court and opposing counsel refused to allow me to amend in federal court without leave).
On March 31, Court denied motion to dismiss without prejudice, and I was given leave to amend (14 days). I amended the complaint to add two more claims to the original complaint (negligence and negligent hiring/retention), and added another 15 claims against original defendants and opposing counsel (added them as Ds) for events that transpired since the case was removed to federal court. I filed the amended complaint on April 13.
Furthermore, 12(f) conference was to be held within 30 days of MtD ruling. I have contacted opposing counsel on record, who have yet to reply re: the 12(f).
You're not looking for advice. You're looking for someone to hold your hand step by step.
That requires HIRING an attorney.
