I am pro-se Claimant in the NY Court of Claims. It happens that I am calling the same witnesses as the defendant (the State). The defendant presents the witness for their own defense but ALSO makes them available for Claimant's case. Is this means double direct and cross-examinations on each... Read more »
I'd be very surprised if the Judge allows you to call as direct witnesses individuals who have already been produced as witnesses by the State. More likely than not, if the witnesses are "hostile", you will have an opportunity to cross-examine them once the State has finished its...Read more »
I was slipped an illegal substance in my drink unknowingly. There are witnesses. I later had my urine tested. It tested positive for thc. I have eye witnesses. This has caused me mental anguish and anxiety. Do I have a civil case?
Yes. You have a battery case (as in assault and battery). However, if the person has no money, you may win but not collect. Also, if the only effect is anxiety be aware that courts require proof of mental harm, and some states have more stringent requirments.Contact a member of the NY State Trial...Read more »

This sounds like a very thick and complex file, and one that could involve multiple attorneys - workers' comp, disability, and depending on the role of the truck, possibly third-party action(s). Based on the serious injuries you describe in terms of five screws, you may want to discuss this in...Read more »

If you had a legal partnership, i.e. filed that way, and can prove you were a partner, then you can make a claim. You have an uphill climb on some issues due to the lack of more writings, but there are default laws that protect you.

Hi. That is a very interesting fact pattern. You definitely want to consult with an attorney prior to settling a potential action. We are happy to provide you with a free consultation, as I’m sure many others are as well.
If it's in a divorce case, then you'd file an order to show cause for an amended judgment. You'd need to submit an affirmation/affidavit stating the reason for the correction. Schedule a consult with a NYC Family Law attorney for a full assessment.
Here's a form I found on the Southern District's website, https://www.nysd.uscourts.gov/forms/subpoena-appear-and-testify-hearing-or-trial-civil-action If you are representing yourself pro se, you will need the clerk to sign off on the subpoena.
In most cases, it would be difficult to sue over expectations related to gifts. In general, gifts don't give rise to the same rights and duties as formal contracts do (offer, acceptance, consideration, etc.). Good luck
