Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX The only lingering question is, I was using the sample petition you referenced as a guide but need to know for sure if I have to have a table of contents and table of authorities or just the same form as the sample you sent.
this is a new question so if I need to post it differently, let me know.
Can I list obvious mistakes made by both the trial court and appeals court in my petition for a writ of certiorari? In both opinions, the judge referenced specific dates that events occurred that are the wrong dates and change the reality of the case. The correct dates are part of the record but (IMHO) were changed in the opinions to justify a decision.
Another question (the system won't let me ask direct if you're offline). I've seen a couple writ of certiorari samples for Colorado that are slightly different in format and just wanted to check and see if, after the statement of the case, is a "reasons to grant this writ" heading instead of a "arguments" heading acceptable? My statement of the case ran a little long and want to get right into the nuts and bolts of why they should take a further look.
I sent you a question yesterday using your "handle" but they gave it to someone else. Do you still get credit for a new answer using this method? If so, here's a new question. Do you know of any Colorado case law that is similar to Lujan v. Defenders of Wildlife that spells out the requirements of standing in a private case in Colorado?
They need to work on their system. I sent you two messages, one direct to you and one using your handle and both of them got hi jacked by someone else.
Actually I was sued by the collection agency and they used a photoshopped bill of sale from the original creditor to a jdb (junk debt buyer) that was notarized with a notary signature and seal that didn't even exist at the time that the document was drafted. Then they said in their complaint that they were the successor entity to another jdb (with a name similar to but different from another jdb in the chain) So basically, even if you ignore the fake bill of sale, the chain went: OC to JDB1, JDB1 to JDB2, then stopped. They said they were assigned the debt from JDBx. After I brought that to their attention (stupid) they magically produced an assignment between JDB2 and them. The problem there was that they again weren't paying attention and dated that assignment two months before the date on the assignment between JDB1 andJDB2 . Sooo, I need some solid case law for Colorado that states something like Lujan, et al. To bring a suit you must prove some sort of real nexus between you and the other party involving injury, more than a casual relationship (just because there's a debt a stranger to the debt can't claim ownership), redress, etc. etc. BTW, they actually told the judge that because records are all sent electronically, they really can't show each individual account they bought, just pools of accounts. Sounds a lot like the mortgage industry.
