If you wish to start a criminal case you must contact the local police and/or prosecutor office.
Regarding the civil matter of the eviction you would have to file a complaint petition along with an order to show cause. Once you have these documents prepared you would go down to court to to purchase your index number. There is no preprinted forms so you would have to visit your local law library and ask the librian to direct you to the appropriate form books.
You would have to file the RJI after you have your index number and after the landlord or whomever you are sueing have been served. The RJI form can be obtained from the court
ok so... 1. index number. 2.emerg order to show cause.3.rji? ---- ok so i want the supreme court to stay my eviction, open up a civil case for breach of contract and i seek tenant harrassment damages of 5k per incident plus rent abatement..etc... this matter was already heard i
n local dictrict court and i was denied appeal as i entered into stipulation w adequate representation.... when in fact, the court appointed attny was ready for trial until i had anxiety attack and then an outburst, he said id make a terrible witness and then we started regnegotioations, at ten to five, we sat waiting for judge to commence trial or give trial date and then we reached a n agreement _new tenant was added to lease with no representation at all. it is stated on recoed when judge called court to order that i had a question for my attny before i could answer judges questions to me... and that question was, are u sure this is the way its supposed to go and this is all legal because john is not here.. he said yes. i inetered into stip.
You truly should have an attorney respresenting you on this matter but since you stated you can not obtain one right now and you want to file then you need to follow the steps I mentioned to you.
You do have a problem since you entered into an agreement. I understand you have anxiety attack and your attorney was correct in saying it is not good to put someone as a witness who has such attacks.
You need to obtain an index number because that is how the court keeps track of the cases and RJI is just short form for "Request For Judicial Intervention".
I wish you well.
i cannot thank you enuf for your time and patience -)
you've been great !!!
