I have an unsatisfied customer who is now threatening to sue. I have made many trips to "touch up" things and even agreed to pay for a door and pay a separate company to install it. I did extra work throughout the process without charging for labor or materials as well. Now that the project is complete, except for the door that the customer agreed to have installed by another company, I am being threatened by her son that they want more things "fixed". I'm not sure how to proceed, and really, when is it going to be enough?

I have a dispute with a motel in NY where we stayed with our cats enroute to a new job. They charged $1200 for damages and I think I have a case with a reasonable chance to win. The question is whether or not I can sue for the expense of travel back to NY as part of the claim for recovery of the $1200? Since travel expenses, plus lost time at work are comparable to the claim itself it's an obvious question in deciding whether to pursue this.

Tortious interference, Defamation, Abuse of process... I put

Tortious interference, Defamation, Abuse of process...I put on a sporting event at an Indian Reservation, which is sovereign ground an not bound to the laws and rules of the California State Athletic Commission. A high ranking officer with the commission deliberately tried to destroy my event. He called athletes, coaches and trainers backstage after the event started, telling them they will be preeminently suspended if they competed in my show. He called officials working the event threatening them with a lifetime suspension if they work the event. I had officials and ahtletes leave in fear of a suspension. This caused my show to come to a stop and took us over an hour to regroup. The show never finished as we had to cancel it before the end. I have received many complaints, had to return ticket money and the resort is upset due to the show and complaints. My name and company where discredited all over social media which is devastating in a grass roots sport like MMA. Jason

Is there a cause of action that you know of off hand where a plaintiff files a lawsuit that he knows is frivolous and a misrepresentation of the facts, just to try to squeeze money out of someone? (The lawsuit has already survived a demurrer, but I believe the Court will see that he misrepresented facts on purpose and knew he did not have a lawsuit.)Thanks.

What are the ways in which a case can be dropped or

What are the ways in which a case can be dropped or dismissed after the lawsuit is filed? You wouldn't believe what I've been through just to get the defendants served, every possible trick that can be played has been played. The politics involved here have made it unbelievably difficult to bring this case to court, the defendants are literately billionaires and have even gotten to my own attorney. I've been on this website on and off for over a year complaining about this case so the odds are, whoever picks this up might already be familiar with it. I'm the beneficiary of a trust and the trustees have commited a number of torts against me that include false imprisonment, abuse if process, intentional infliction of emotional distress, forgery, one heck of s case of defamation and more. I just served the petition last week but fought like crazy to get it done, my attorney had flat out disappeared and I had to track him down and threaten to hold him responsible for missing any dates. He was almost willing to accept a malpractice suit for not serving. My question is this, how could my case be dismissed or dropped at this point? The first status conference is on 9/15 and my attorney isn't lifting a finger. He said he could ask to extend the dates in order to find an attorney and I'm trying hard to do that but what should be happening at this point in the game? The trial date hasn't even been set yet, in fact, I haven't even received their answer yet but I know that it will basically say "to heck with you". I feel like my case is slipping away and definitely isn't being monitored, if there is a sneaky way of getting it dismissed these guys are sure to try it.
