OK .. so pretty much filing this motion does nothing but buy some time for my attorney .. if he was ready to go ... wouldn't it have made some sense to use the basis of his motion ... sometime later especially when the issue runs through most of the documentation they are basing their case on .. thus, this motion gave them a heads up to make sure everything is changed to address this motion throughout the case.
Have I asked is The XYZ Condominium suing me different the THE XYZ Condominium Association suing me ... that was the basis of the motion .. based on what the condo docs say and the dc condo act ... seems like a technicality at the same time he asked for clarification due to being able to determine the counterclaim and the 3rd parties
We know there hand .... we filed the motion on day 20 ( the response was due) ... it just seems to me it's a technacality used to buy my attorney time because he didn't have the work done he said he would to provide a proper response ...So this just drags things out another 30+ days it appears .. the only way to become the plaintiff ( which my attorney said was so vital ) would be if he had filed the motion and complaint/response at the time of the motion .. which he didn't .. He didn't expect the case to get thrown out .. thus he was helping himself to more time ? Will rate pay etc .. if you can answer or give an opinion of motive for this motion filed with no counterclaim etc
do you know any way I can get out of this arrangement with my attorney .. when he was afraid of a complaint or malpractice .. all of a sudden came the mention of how much i'd owe him.... if i did so ... so i'm kind of locked in ... i file against him, he demands a ridiculous amount of money for work he's not done , or I stay and this goes on for another 6 months, having already wasted 8
