Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
hey, at trial, can I ask the 2 defendants, of the interrogatories- if they read them and if they answered, so they're aware of my issues and if they did , did they bring them to court and can I be given them? could they be given to me before the start if they have them, so I can be aware of what they think? the same of 2 witnesses I've served written depositions to, so if they're aware of my issues and ques.s... none was replied to date
I subpoenaed all 4 to show and asked them to bring the written answers to discovery. If I could read a bit of these before trial I'd know what to expect. Also if they read the questions I'd know they're up on what I'm going to ask/ what I infer was the issues. Also, the written documents I'd like to have for other reasons. so, when they are on the stand can I ask did you receive the document/read it/actually answer them/ and did you return it with you. Yes I subpoeaned the 2 defendants.. the answers could prove useful when I ask their testimony if I'd be able to get pretrial?
none of these discovery,were answered!!!! I wanted to know if the 2 witnesses would know the issues of my claim. and some of these answers may have trapped the 2 defendants. I guess I can't ask the court if they brought these to court,pretrial so I can read a bit. Simple ques.'s to me so I know what issues the answers will would've raised.
If they read my deposition ques.s I'm assuming they can recall stuff 7 months ago, better. Can the judge rule of contempt of these people for not answering these at all and overdue 100%, at trial, or admonish the other lawyer and so on. To show the judge what noncompliant the other side was/is.
I've filed those Motions long ago. I was surprised the judge didnot grant them at all. the interrogatories are 3 months due. their tactics I'm sure. As, I told an expert this seems to be the essence of the court, the discovery, for the judge not to grant basic questions and business issues of defendant I'd need to know.Sad.
avoiding facts, yep. I thought the other lawyer a fool for believing his defendants and asked him, if he did. He would not say, yes or no. This to see what a poor case they had if they are lying. I had about 4 motions for info., too late now. Good day.
how can I admit an exhibit of a document at trial... so the judge can read it and the other lawyer can read it, so I can explain its details to them, as it is confusing .. it is a file of my talks to cust service rep. and it says my issue at the car dealer. the rep kept a poor file of what I said
say after a witness testimony, I can just ask the court to look at the files/read them as I tell them what they say-- so I'll be talking to the court/arbitrators outloud/no witness for those 2 subpoenaed witnesses, can I ask if their boss/the defendant or its lawyer conferred or spoke at all of the trial to them? That subpoena of them do I need to file that with the clerk, before the trial...if they donot show, I guess. And 1 of the defendants will not show, I can ask a default judgement of him? and can I infer what he would've said? as to what he told me in a phone conversation, in fact did say.
an expert said I could say what occurred between us, if he's not there. No,not all, ok. Properly introduced of the files, is what I'm asking you..after 1 witness, I can just ask the court to admit this file as it corroberates what you all just heard and adds, some details not heard to it. Is that how to get it admitted? the default judgement I would just ask after all the testimony? These last 2 items are important if you could detail a bit., especially the file.
Thanks much as to the defendant's no show. I did not mean infer, but what he'd maybe have said if he was there. I did have the phone call talk with him, when he spoke for the dealer, and Refused me any discounts.thanks again. I'll look at what's needed for the file, appreciate that too. Back to my ques. of the 2 witnesses that are employeed at the defendant. Can I ask them if they had talks w/defendant's managers/staff or their lawyer to influence them maybe even as to what to say or not to say. If they sound suspicious on the stand
Good info.,1 more thing. A lawyer wrote may claim is based on UTPCPL's 73 P.S. Section 201... What is the P.S. and even the 73, this may arise at trial... the intent to not sell what they advertise
the lawyer had an (ix) etc. it sure be nice to have him there Fri., as there's a lot of little technical stuff as I just asked you and more, he wanted mega money for 2 hours of trial, oh well. I appreciate all you guys with my questions. I also think this lawyer will be playing a little hardball. He's already trying to remove the 2 employees as defendants as they're only agents of the corporate car dealer, the 3rd defendant. Any thing you may add to that claim of theirs?
I thought I was done, But 2 more things. Can you give me a link for the exhibit to admit authenticate download or a write up of that as I can not download. 2nd can I reference or ask of defendants testimony they said in small claims court? Ask, did you say so and so, or you did not remember this there but do you recall this fact now?
