Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
the case (civil) was first heard in 07-2012, 1 conference call, and 2 more hearings thereafter.the case got sidetracked by other issues between the plaintiff and other defendants.none of the other parties are affected by the case as our family, so none of them are in a hurray to be heard.because of this issue and the hearing, our life has been put on hold, it has effected our health (interruption of medical treatment) and lose of income.I have a Brother that i have not seen in over 23 years, he was diagnosed with cancer this month, he will be receiving treatment in Germany and I would like to be by his side during that time, unless this case is heard and resolved i will not be able to be with him. I talked to the Judge's office about requesting a hearing and they told me to email a request stating the reason.
I was not looking for a legal opinion, what i need is some one to write me a letter to the judge. Thank you.
I understand, I just want some help: addressing the Judge and in a letter (email) and requesting of hearing because of the reasons that i stated above. Thank you.
will the "speedy trial doctrine in Texas under Texas Code of Criminal Procedure Art. 32A.02 et seq, and overall in Barker v. Wingo, 407 U.S. 514 (1972)," apply to a civil case?
everything else looks fine.
you been patient, thank you.
In the future! how do i 'get' you in particular if i have other legal need?
Thanks we'll be having a conference call today to set up a time for a hearing.
I have another matter that i need your input, How do can i request to ask you directly not another expert?
Hello Ely,Thank you for responding. This case was filed over a year ago, My Attorney at the time filed a General Denial Response to the accusation with the Court.Because of $, I no longer have an attorney to represent me, I now have some documents, Photos, court cases, legal opinions by Texas Attorney General and Texas Supreme Court that i intend to use in showing that I'm on the right and plaintiff is wrong.The question is: Do i have to provide these documents to the plaintiff's Attorney and or the Judge before the hearing or can i just use them in my defense the day of the hearing as evidence or exhibits? The case is civil case.
Take your time,
County of Dimmit.
"(a) must be supplied to the other party if they ASK for it during discovery (i.e. "produce evidence you intend to use at trial" in a Request for Production),..."??
these documents were found just a week ago, the case started over a year ago and i don't know if we had "Discovery".
Sorry! the case started in Dimmit, now we are in Bexar County.
We were never served any of that.
I guess we are on the clear and let's see their reaction.
Thank you as always.
This will require more questions in the future, I'll be contacting you again.
