Q: What can I do after We had phone court on eviction and found in the wrong because Plantiff had a attorney
We gave the judge all the proof and they did Not let me say two sentences! How can I appeal a wrong decision on two disabled people?
A: Oh, in answer to your other question, I assumed it was a criminal case. If it's an eviction case, you won't end up in prison, just on the street. Sorry.
A: You didn't lose because the plaintiff had an attorney. You lost because you didn't have an effective or legal defense. Of course you can appeal but the likelihood of you prevailing is slim because eviction cases are creatures of statute. Statutes are narrowly construed (they mean what they say to the letter). Your age or disability status has nothing to do with your legal issues in an eviction.
