Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
I hope this message finds you well, present circumstances excluded. I am a licensed attorney with well over a decade of litigation experience. It is a pleasure to assist you today.
To make sure that I understand what you are looking for here, I need a little more information if you don't mind.
What was the vague statement that the attorney has made and what question or interrogatory was it made in reference to?
Also, understand, the lawyer may be making a vague statement so as not to admit to what you have accused him of in the first place. It may well be an effort to avoid a really good question on your part. In that instance, a motion for a motion definite statement, or a motion for contempt, may be warranted from you towards the attorney.
I will wait for you answer and look forward to assisting you with this important issue.
I am sorry I am unable to take a call. However, I can continue to answer your questions in this format. Based on what you have presented here, there is nothing ambiguous about the pleadings. The attorney is accused of not fulling his job duties...pure and simple. I think that the judge may be corrupt.
You can play the game and attempt to be more specific. Or, you can file a counter motion in which you claim that the defendant is in contempt for failing to answer your suit. You could also file a motion to compel the answer of the defendant. To that end, you could combine the motions, into a motion defined as a "motion to compel, or in the alternative, a motion for contempt".
If the judge is unwilling to relent and do what is correct, you can appeal this particular component of the judge's actions and ruling relative to this specific issue with a Writ of Certiorari. The specific issue of the Motion for a More Definite statement can be reviewed by a higher appellate court and a decision rendered in your favor forcing the trial court to act according to your wishes.
Let me know if that helps and what other questions you may have. I want you to be as comfortable as possible with this issue.
Please also rate my work positively. Thanks
Excuse me...looking over my answer, replace the writ of certiorari language with interlocutory appeal. My apologies. My mind got ahead of my fingers. Thanks
Did you have any additional questions or comments? Just want to make sure you are as comfortable as possible as you move forward. Thanks
