Thank you again, I just got off the phone with their law clerk and they are about to request a hearing on their motion the week of july 29th, it should take a few days or more to get a reply and obtain a hearing date, but if I don't request leave to amend answer am I barred from bring them up in a motion to deny summary judgment , I feel confident I can prove a genuine issue exist that could only be fully determined in a court after examination of parties involved in the dispute. And I have my copy of my check that reads in the memo section " For in full, last payment. as well as other supportive issues. I am a partcially disabled US Veteran, are there any such thing as pro bone attorneys I get assist, me???
