I am sorry you have had to deal with this. Unfortunately, your post does not clearly tell us whether this is an employee of a company you were a customer of, or if this was a co-worker. The answer would be slightly different for each.
If these comments were by a co-worker or supervisor,...Read more »
Its impossible to answer that question without knowing more about what happened. Is it a settlement with your own insurer or a third party? Is there any way you can claim that you were fraudulently induced to sign the agreement? Was there a mutual mistake of fact that caused you to sign the...Read more »
Generally, any attorney in the firm of record can issue a subpoena. It is not unusual, especially with larger firms, for attorneys whose names do not appear on the court’s list of counsel to work on a matter and send out correspondence and discovery requests, including third party subpoenas.

I had a leak in my ceiling in the apartment I rent. They rushed me out put me in another apartment but they damaged a lot of my property and a lot of it with sentimental value including an airplane propeller that my ex-boyfriend UPS to me when I got my bachelor's degree from flight school he...

This would not be an intellectual property question, but there's not really a law in regards to this. This would be more appropriately a question for the insurance company that was used to fix the ceiling. As far as I know though, most insurance companies don't give any additional value...Read more »

There's several pieces to this. First off, you mention that he was "court-ordered not to give", which would imply there's already been a case and judgment on him in regards to his recorded breaches prior to you moving out? If so, then the discussion would be on your issue...Read more »
How can we, as plaintiffs, who have to stop litigating not end up responsible for the defense costs? We never even realized this was a possibility when we sued. We sued for a very good reason, but for several reasons, we cannot continue this lawsuit any longer (it has been 3 years). Really would... Read more »
If you are a plaintiff and dismiss your case years into litigation, but before a trial, is there a way to not be responsible for the defendant's attorney fees (aside from the defense agreeing to this)?
First, in the US we do not have a rule that the loser pays fees in ALL cases, only in SOME cases. Like if you have a contract provision that allows for attorney's fees. Or if you are suing under a law that also allows for attorney's fees- like for wages, or age discrimination. So you...Read more »
We need help with how we should word the motion filed to withdraw vs dismiss or what to call it? What is the best way to go about doing this to be 100% sure we are not responsible for the defendant's attorney fees and can the defense come back and try to sue us after we either withdraw or...

you really want to have an attorney contact them to try to get some money and then when they say no, to ask if I can get them to drop/dismiss the case, we would want a release agreeing that each side shall bear their own costs.
if they know you are going to give in, then they may not agree...Read more »
Not all depositions require a subpoena. If you are a party to a court action, civil, family law, probate, you can be required to go to a deposition upon service on you or your attorney of a "notice of taking deposition." Look in the Code of Civil Procedure- Civil Discovery Act- depositions.
Technically, no, but if you don't have one, who is going to raise the legal objections to questions that you are asked that are not proper? Only a very naïve person would think that answering questions at a deposition is easy, it is not, they can ask you the same question a dozen different...Read more »
