D. Mathew Blackburn's answer You report the 1099-Misc on your return and create a counter entry reducing the amount and add a note stating that the income was reported as a W-2.
Keep all your records. There's a very high chance you'll receive a letter from the IRS in 2 - 2.8 years adding the 1099-Misc back in as income an stating you owe back taxes, interest, and penalties. Then you'll have to provide the documentary evidence showing that you filed your return correctly and the IRS doesn't know what it's doing....
Peter N. Munsing's answer I'm sorry to hear that you had to go through this. You have a case but.....the problem is that homeowners won't cover intentional acts, and if there is no insurance unless he's worth a lot of money you will get a piece of paper saying you are entitled to money--but he won't be able to pay it. The only plus is that as intentional acts they aren't dischargeable in bankruptcy.
I know that's not at all "justice" but it's like being mugged by a wino--you have a case but after spending...

Joseph Jaap's answer She should have filed a change of address with the OH court which handled the divorce, and it would retain jurisdiction. She could file something in MI, but the MI court would likely say it belongs in OH court.

Neil Klingshirn's answer Every case is different, so the best course is to get advice specific to your situation. That said, as a general rule you should evaluate the strength of the evidence for your claim, the amount of damages you could recover and the costs you will incur to recover those damages.
Here, your claim is that gender discrimination is blocking your advancement to a better position. The manager's statement is direct evidence of that discrimination. You can testify that he said it, as can any of...
Joseph Jaap's answer Your counsel in CA should be able to handle that, or you can retain local OH counsel to assist with the filing. Use the Find a Lawyer tab to retain a local litigation attorney in OH where the lawsuit has been filed.
Dimitrios Makridis' answer Typically, a lawsuit is filed where the defendant (1) resides; (2) has a principal place of business; (3) conducted activity giving rise to the claim; or (4) where all or part of the claim took place (i.e. where the accident took place). However, a lawsuit can be filed where a plaintiff resides, IF the lawsuit requires out-of-state service OR the plaintiff has been a resident of that county for at least 90 days.
Brian Smith Esq's answer It sounds like the employer deposited too much to your account. When they discover the error they can and will take the money back. you might build some good faith by letting them know of the over deposit.
Matthew Williams' answer The court can hold hearings whenever it wants really. If there are outstanding pleadings, that can be addressed with the court at hearing. The Ohio Rules of Civil Procedure do set the time responding to an amended pleading: "Unless the court orders otherwise, any required response to an amended pleading must be made within the time remaining to respond to the original pleading or within fourteen days after service of the amended pleading, whichever is later." Ohio R. Civ. Pro 15(A).
Peter N. Munsing's answer I think I answered this already. Did the tavern have insurance? That should cover the claim, get her an attorney. If the claimant settled, see the release. Otherwise, get a consult from a bankruptcy attorney. That would put the other proceedings on hold.
