Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
I asked the judge for a continuance, but it was denied because I did not object to the lawyer withdrawsing. I probably should have objected to the lawyer withdrawing, but he had asked me not to do that.
If I dimiss the case, am I able to start over when I retain another lawyer? I hate to dismiss it, because so far it was going in my favor.
The main reasons I do not want to settle, is because I know that the school will not work out for my child anyway, and I also think that the administrators need to be exposed. If I settle, it seems like the issues will be swept under the rug, and I don't see how it will ever get better. They are asking me to drop my OCR complaints as part of the settlement. Is there a way to take them to court, without having to settle? I guess I just do not understand well enough, how this all works.
