Yes, I am sole owner & president,
Claim is NOT in "Small Claims Court",
Discovery complete. Req.to Admit, Req. to Produce Documents, Form & Special Interrogatories. Plaintiff's & Defendants. No need for Depositions as we have all evidence needed. Breach of Contracts not disputed, only issue is amount of Damages.
I understand Rules, but there is a provision where I can personally buy the Claim from the Corporation.
I don't think it is a theory, but agree unusual. alternatively, we could ask for case to be dismissed WITHOUT prejudice, and refile a new suit in Federal Courts as Plaintiff is Florida corporation and other defendants are in California, Texas, Indiana, and based on Newly discovered evidence, an additional defendant resides in Oklahoma. We posted a CASH $50,000.00 bond to get Writ of Possession and had No problem as there was no possible defense. We do not seek Exemplar or Punitive damages as there is no amount of money that would ever make a "leopard change his spots". We believe we are entitled to provable Damages plus mitigation expenses and attorney fees as provided for in contract to the prevailing party. Then interest.
The California Bar Association clearly says an attorney has specific obligations that seem to require an attorney to follow all LEGAL requests etc. Asking permission to have direct contact with opposition attorneys and expressing willingness to accept "risk" of same, are legitimate requests.The opposition Defense attorneys have openly expressed "disdain & disrespect" for Plaintiff's attorney several times. This has become an attorneys cash cow.
How can I do this unless I can "bring it to the Judge's attention? Will he recognize me if I appear in opposition to any Motion?
Can corporation hire an attorney for the "SPECIFIC" purpose of opposition to any Motion to resign?
Of course we can file a complaint with the California Bar Association, and are aware the CCC 953 clearly says Attorney/Client privileges belong to CLIENT.
