Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Hello, and thanks for contacting Just Answer again. It is unusual to have more than one plaintiff in a case. Is a condo or HOA involved? You may withdraw as a plaintiff from a civil case Your attorney would be the one to advise you on local procedure and to prepare a the necessary motion to the court on your behalf. If you have done something that the defendants think you are liable to them for, you could be brought back into the case by them filing a cross-complaint against you and making you a defendant as to their claim. You need to discuss this situation with your attorney as soon as possible. When s/he learns that no one is going to pay for the legal work, s/he may decide to withdraw from the case.
I hope this information is helpful and that you will enter a positive rating. I thank you for submitting your question to Pearl-Just Answer. We appreciate your business.
