With Arbitration complete, Defendants file Petition to Confirm Contractual Arbitration Award while Plaintiff files to Vacate - do both parties still need to respond to each others Petition in addition to each submitting their own?

Cross-Petitions to Confirm and Vacate do need to respond to the extent possible, to the claims of the other party. The burden is on the party seeking to vacate, therefore, in addition to demonstrating (in the Petition to Vacate) the grounds for vacatur, the allegations of the Petition to Confirm... Read more »
I’m wondering if I need to respond or if I just leave it alone. When I resigned from my position my previous employer responded with retaliation and harassment. Now I’m receiving a letter. I’m not sure what to do.
answered on May 18, 2023
As hard as it may sound, ignoring the letter is the wrong decision. I am not saying that you need to shoot off a letter to the author. I am saying never disregard such a letter. It must be analyzed. What is the motive, what are your risks? You have not provided the substance of the letter, but it... Read more »
If one party wants to confirm and they file a Petition and the Plaintiff wants to Vacate the Contractual Arbitration Award, can both parties file a petition? And how long do they have since I've found answers that claim 100 days and now I see 10 days which means I am late. Do I have to respond... Read more »

Let me unpack your question since there are a few parts. First, I understand that the opposing party has filed a Petition/Motion to confirm the Award and you want to vacate the Petition. Yes, you file in the same case (which is brought to confirm) in order to vacate the Award. The law is that, if a... Read more »

The client remembers signing a Retainer agreement with the attorneys law firm letterhead, the one she was given was from her to the attorney with only her signature.
answered on Apr 5, 2023
An attorney is required under the Rules of Professional Responsibility to provide a retainer agreement in almost all situations in which he will be representing her interests. However, that does not prohibit a retainer agreement that the client has drafted. However, without the signature, it seems... Read more »
I won this default award from ccma.
I am worried that maybe i have to claim it and i am not aware but the commissioners said i should wait for the payout date.

The law in New York is that a party must move to confirm an Arbitration Award within one year of its issuance. That is a statute of limitations. Don't ignore that date. Unless it is confirmed, no Judgment may be entered on an Award, which makes it unenforceable.
If you believe that the... Read more »

You must keep separate two concepts: the law of the state that will interpret a contract and where and whether entities are "citizens" (or, states in which they are doing business) of a particular state.

You are asking a very common question. The question ordinarily comes up in the context of fraud, and not breach of contract. For instance, if the contract was fraudulent, is one bound by the terms of the contract, including the arbitration provision? While many believe that a contract induced by... Read more »

Typically, in such an instance, the Court should allow your responsive papers to the Petitioner's motion when the opposing side raises new facts or circumstances. If you are not allowed, you can argue that the Petitioner's new facts should not be considered. A party is not allowed to... Read more »

Good question. The first part of the answer involves the simple availability of the name; but, given its largely unique name, you will probably have no problems registering it.

I understand your motivation. There could always be liability, not just for personal injury but real estate taxes. The easiest way is to ask for her to issue a quit claim deed. It would need to be filed as well.
