Dear Customer, thank you for choosing Just Answer. I am sorry to hear of this conduct. In California there is relief from this type of conduct, but it is difficult to obtain. The relief is under a statute for "vexatious litigation" requiring the vexatious litigant to file multiple cases without merit in a short period of time, this includes the attorney prosecuting these claims. here is the statute, you can review it to see if it applies to your situation: http://codes.lp.findlaw.com/cacode/CCP/3/2/3A/s391
I hope that my answer was of assistance to you.

Thank you for partially answering my question. It has been helpful, now along with the complaint, I have a blank form called "Defendant's application for stay and early evaluation conference pursuant to code section 55.54" What happens in this matter if I file this form? And why would I get an offer of compromise with this complaint?
Thank you. XXX, X am a small business with less than 10 employees and I can supply the information requested on the form, but what will be the result of filing this form. Will I be exonerated from these charges if I show the doorknobs have been brought up to code?
