I missed a court date and the court voted in favor of the plaintiff.
(I was being sued in small claims
Crooked divorce attorney who took off to Florida in the middle of drafing my divorce agreement, telling me when she was on her way
To the airport that oh by the fill out the ny state forms
Yourself and the edits on the separation agreement, and if your
Violent husband doesn't agree I've decided I'm retiring from litigation
and you'll have to find someone else. This is in the middle
Of a retainer I had paid her.
Then she had the nerve to send me
A bill for $4k.
The reason I missed the court date: I had bought a
New iPhone at the beginning of 2013. I had set the court date in 2012 on my old phone. Somehow the data transfer didn't work right so I had the date
Wrong on my iPhone calendar.
Also when I got the iPhone alert 10 days prior I called the court to check. It took me four solid days to get thru on the phone and I was out of town on business. By the time
I gr through they said I missed the date. Then they denied my request to reopen. Is there a precedent I can appeal
