If those dates are correct then you want to hire another attorney ASAP and have them file a Motion for New Trial. At this point filing appeal won't do anything because there is nothing in the "record" to suggest that you weren't being adequately represented, didn't know about it, etc.
What is the time frame I have to file motionout the for a new trial. What about : The Court orders that Plaintiff Dahlia Canales take nothing by her claims against Defendants, and the Court dismisses those claims with prejudice. Court

oh, cool!!!!!!! Thank you very much. I had this case won already but for some weird reason my lawyer dropped the ball. I have witnesses and documentation and above all, I had contacted the ethics line and made a claim stating that I was afraid I would get fired if I told on the bosses pet that he was watching porn up to 6 hours a day and fondling himself...and that happened just like I said it would.
Just be sure and move quickly. A judge is likely to reverse the previous decisions if he knows that you were not being kept informed by the attorney but the longer you wait the less likely the judge is to grant the request.
Anything else I can assist with?
I'm sorry, I got disconnected.
did you read the last ng I sent you?
I read the part about the boss's pet watching porn, was that the last thing you sent?
yea, I just wanted you to know what it was about. I do want to thank you for this ray of hope!
Glad to be of assistance.
Have a GREAT Day!
You as well.
Please ask any follow up questions in this thread. When all of your questions have been answered, then I would ask that you give a Positive Rating (of course I'd suggest Excellent) since that is the only way I get credit for my work and also please consider clicking "BONUS" as a nice way of saying "thanks" for a job well done, although this is neither required nor expected. When looking at the answer I ask you to bear in mind I can’t control what the law is and whether it helps you, I can only tell you what it says, and I assume you want truthful information. Also, issuing a positive rating keeps the question from “timing out” so you can return in the future if you think of a follow up.
However, please do not issue a rating of any kind until all of your questions have been answered and please use the Reply button to ask additional questions or to provide answers to my questions.
My lawyer sent me a text stating he would research and still wants to meet with me this Friday to discuss my options, he said the case was not over unless I want it to be over
. What do you think?
I will meet with him this Friday and see what his plan is. Since this case was in a federal court in Texas, do you know how much time I have to ask for the Motion for a New Trial,if things don't work with my attorney? Also, want you to know that I appreciate your concern and help!
I will let you know what my attorney has to say about the case. I intend to give you a bonus but unfortunately, that has to wait until next Friday, April 26, when I get paid again. What do I do now, do I rate to finish or leave this page?
Thank you very much for your help. I will let you know what happens and also get your bonus next Friday!
I met with my attorney on Friday and he says he will open a new case in State court this week. He said he did not respond to the federal court case because he did not want the case to be heard in Federal because we would surely loose since Federal courts are harder to win and the Judge is an asshole. So forward we go...I hope he is not just trying to buy time for himself.
Does that sound like the next logical step?
I'll be in touch next weekend so I can give you a bonus for hanging in there for me! Have a blessed week!
