A: Your question makes no sense which indicates to me you should have a lawyer. Court procedure is different in each court. As to using court documents from other cases not only is it legal, it is smart.

A: Case documents are public documents. You may have an objection if the documents are irrelevant or unfairly prejudicial. More facts are needed to address your 2nd question. More details are necessary to provide a professional analysis of your issue. The best first step is an Initial Consultation with an Attorney. You can read more about me, my credentials, awards, honors, testimonials, and media appearances/ publications on my law practice website.
