Hi, sorry for the confusion.Yes, they have won an Amended Final Judgment but I have objected and the judge has issued an order deeming my objection motion to rehear and ordering to contact her assistant so I am about to set a hearing for April 29th.
Thank you. I have a few questions though:Question 1: I assume that my correspondence deemed motion to rehear by order of the judge is not just a pretext to clean her mistake, and that she will not deny what she self-created.So I have 2 scenarios here, when the opponent's counsel asks me to join the hearing of his motion to the one of the deemed motion, which I find very confusing :a) he knows already the issue of the hearing, i.e. my deemed motion will be denied, and the amended final judgment will be deemed valid, in which case he would be immediately after taxing his fees to us,However, in which case his affidavit will need to be updated for the extra costs incurred until then ?Will come up to the hearing with an updated affidavit and have it adjudged by the Court ? is that normal practice ?b) a new judgment will be issued, based on the pleadings, in which case his motion is invalid, becuase it is founding itself on present amended FJ, and I don't see the new judgment issued at the hearing ?
In both situations, i dont see why he is insisting to join both hearings, when i beleive they should be one after another with some time to evaluate his fees ?
Ok, i almost got the picture,,, in the case a new judgment is issued, can or should the opponent's counsel file a verbal motion or amend his motion at the hearing, since his present motion is based on present judgment? You say I could have an attorney to witness, can I call other witnesses to support my other contemptions ?
