Can I at least file a motion for more time so my case is... Read more »

Can you? Sure. It's a motion to extend time to respond to discovery. Be forewarned: now that you've filed and the defendant has responded, it may be more difficult to find a lawyer to take your case, or may require a hefty retainer upfront. Good luck.

A commercial landlord can lock out a tenant without first obtaining a court order. This option is often specifically reserved in many commercial leases. It is also one of the remedies allowed by ARS 33-361.
The owner changed management companies if that matters.

This can be done if handled properly by the landlord or his management company. Your documents should be reviewed by an attorney. They may consist of an offer that is binding upon your acceptance. Or they may contain language that provides the proposal is not binding upon the landlord until... Read more »
