Very sorry to hear about this kind of treatment of a long term employee. I handle employment law but not Labor/Management relations, which is what you are speaking about. The law involved is the LMRA, a Federal Law and you will need to file a lawsuit called a "DFR" case in Federal...Read more »
A party provided false and misleading statements in connection to an anti-slapp motion. I intend to file objections certain parts of the declaration that are false and can prove it. What objection can I use under Evidence Code or any other codes?
You are mixing apples with meatballs. There are rules of court and statutes regarding the timing for filing a motion for attorney's fees, or the judge could set a special time schedule on request. You can look these up on the internet, they are available to the public. If these are missed...Read more »
Without additional information this is very difficult to respond to. A lot depends on the retainer agreement. Maybe its ok, maybe not. What if they have to spend $50,000 for deposition costs and it requires financing at 10% for 5 years. Should the law firm just eat the $25,000 in financing...Read more »
I was a victim of a felony hit and run drunk driver. He rear ended me on the freeway while I was going 65 mph causing injury. The county commanded custody of restitution payments. I was awarded around $7k in a court order. The county has sent me two payments over a 12 year period totaling about... Read more »
Why would the State of California collect "child support, etc.?" Generally that is paid to the person caring for the child. Maybe a person in your other category "Civil Litigation/Collections" can shed some light on this for you.
Small Claims has jurisdiction up to $10,000, and this is the easiest and fastest way to get a judgment against the man who is breaching the contract.

Depends on the kind of trial you had. If Small Claims, as the defendant you have a right of appeal and a trial de novo. You would know what the lies were going to be ahead of time and have the proof ready for the new trial. Without seeing the court records it is not possible to give you an...Read more »
Oct 15, 2020, a Restrained person in a DV - TRO (Domestic Violence Temporary Restraining Order) has served (via separate Lawyer from DV-TRO ) a written 30 day "Notice to Quit & move out (deliver up the possession) to a Protected person via the DV - TRO.
Hmmm, you need to discuss this with your DV attorney or get one if you don't have one. You are telling two tales here. First you say the Restrained Person (RP) served you with a "Notice to Quit" and then you say that they did it through a different attorney. Well, either they did...Read more »
CA - I had a fee waiver originally. It was my first motion that I have ever submitted. I tried to submit a motion for reconsideration but I left out the affidavit.

It sounds like you are being sued and within that lawsuit something happened that caused the court to issue sanctions against you. Since you are having financial issues, I highly recommend you speak to a bankruptcy attorney.
I began to occupy a mobilehome, that I later purchased, for approximately 5 months prior to denial of my application to rent the space. I notified management of my occupancy, in person, in February and received no objection until August, 2 months AFTER denial of my application in June, and in... Read more »
There are property rights that can be gained through the concept of "Adverse Possession," but these rights take years, not months. I don't see how the management company can force you to move out of a motorhome that you own, but without a lease, it can certainly force you to move the motorhome.
In the prior appeal, the defendants conceded a point. Based on that concession, the appellate court reversed and remanded. Post remand, the defendants argued the identical point and the trial court again sided it with them and dismissed the case based on the same issue that the appellate court... Read more »
First, I am not a California lawyer. That being said, was the "law of the case" argued before the trial court on remand? I would think that that doctrine applies here. But I can see how oral argument in the prior appeal could be cited in the current appeal, so I think the answer is "yes."
IMO you did not do anything wrong. There are Executive orders in place in California for people just like this person to wear a mask, especially in an establishment that serves food. He just does not want to wear it. If he has such a condition that he cannot wear a mask, he should provide you...Read more »
As provided by the U.S. Constitution, Federal law is restricted to issues within exclusive Federal Jurisdiction and everything else is reserved to the states. Which is why there is no Federal Civil Code. Libel and Defamation are claims under State Law and are within the California Civil Code. So...Read more »

You probably aren't getting responses to your question because it is almost impossible to answer that question with the limited amount of information given. You should sit down with an attorney and have a consultation to get more specific answers.
The judge did not apply the law to the evidence in the right way. I want to refile again the same case is this legal?

Welcome to the world of litigation. You file your case, give it your best shot at trial and for one reason or another the judge does not agree with you, and you lose. In small claims, plaintiffs have no right to an appeal. The decision is a bar against you refiling the same case and you could...Read more »
If you file suit, you should hire an attorney. He will advise you who to sue. The problem is that unless the running of the statute of limitations was "tolled" or stopped from running out, 12 years is a very long time to wait to bring a claim. Depending on what your brother is offering...Read more »
