the problem is, my case is connected to the case where the fraud happened. The fraud has caused delya in both cases various times, and so it is affecting my case negatively. I have been told by two layers that I have no standing to bring up the issue, even though the cases are connected for pre-trial purposes, and the stalls caused to that case are negatively affecting my case. Two lawyers have told me I do have standing. 1) Does it sound like I have standing to address this or not?
2) Regardless, I am amending the complaint to add new parties. While I am at it, I wonder if i cannot address the fraud, or add it to my new complaint, as this stall caused to me has been expensive and time consuming. Is there any such allegation available- such as fraudulent interference?
the affidavit that I allege was fraudulent, was filed in another case that was against the same defendants over the same series of actions that led to the filing of both cases. However, the defendants had filed joint motions to consolidate the two cases, mine and the other plaintiffs, and the Judge granted this motion, and so the cases have been joined for pre-trial purposes. The fraudulent affidavit IS affecting my case, because the aftershocks of that affidavit continue to stall the joined case, as well as my own. It has happened 3 times now, as the adjoined plaintiff has had to seek new counsel, because the fraudulent affidavit had disqualified her chosen lawyer.
That is the basis of standing, that the fraud in that case, is negatively affecting my case, because my case is ties to that case.
ok, that works well then. What is such a motion called? A Motion to unconsolidate the cases?
also as to question number two, is there such a cause of action to add to my complaint? I assume there is not. thank you
