I have a guy who continued his 15 year vendetta with my father with me when my dad died. In the last 5 years he has sued and appealed over 20 times and lost them all. The lawsuits are so ridiculas the judges have freaked out and threw the cases out of court immediately. examples include smoke from my dads cigarette smoking in 2007 caused him $70 000 in damages to his neighbouring property, appeals are as ridiculas as the judge could not accurately read the time or the clock used was wrong (an appeal when he was late) all the cases are more ridiculas than the previous one. To me it should be an easy case but am I missing something?
The man in question is rich, do you think it would be better to ask for a smaller amount so as to not involve a lawyer? Or retain a lawyer and ask for more?
