This question is forCustomer I have a situation where the judge sent a letter to the Plaintiffs allowing them time to amend their complaint (foreclosure) to ask for monetary damages. In addition, the Plaintiffs filed for a Default Judgment and the judge said the court did not recognize my Answer because it was filed in U.S. Federal District Court (you and I discussed this about a 1-1/2 years back). The Plaintiffs changed attorneys and the new attorneys acknowledge that I answered the complaint in U.S. Federal District Court. The new attorneys filed an Amended Complaint on one day, and the very next day they filed a Motion for Summary Judgment. My question is, is this legal?

An LLC was formed in Delaware but business is located in NY.

An LLC was formed in Delaware but business is located in NY. I am aware that an Application of Authority needs to be filled out with NY. It also looks like the LLC falls under the same newspaper publication requirements as an LLC that was formed in NY. I was told by someone who has done the same thing that they were not required to to the publishing because they somehow got the name cleared but they don't recall how. Do you know of any way to get around the publication requirement for NYS for a foreign LLC?

My ex live in girlfriend, is a blackjack dealer at a local

My ex live in girlfriend, is a blackjack dealer at a local casino. I live in Las Vegas. During our extremely short term relationship, during a fight, she called and initiated a chargeback on a purchase we had mutually agreed on. This lead to a domino effect, because the transaction was for about $1800 and was to China, to purchase toys, as I had taught her about a business reselling item during christmas time. When she initiated this chargeback, it lead to my account being frozen for months and to this day I have restricted access, not to mention the contact that was extremely profitable refuses to do business with me anymore.The ex-gf signed a notarized Affidavit to cancel the chargeback and under the portion of "I am now accepting this share back with paypal because of the following circumstance" she wrote "This transaction was completed by self".Now, I'm upset, because my college degree is in ethics, and I feel very strongly about right and wrong, and she literally called a financial institution, created a false report, then had a change of heart, and ended up signing the affidavit admitting to canceling the chargeback because the transactions "was completed by self".She is licensed with the Nevada gaming commission as a blackjack dealer, I am wondering, what if anything I can, or should do given these circumstances, I feel it is wrong that she can make a false report, that I am still feeling the repercussions of to this day due to her whimsical nature.

I own 10 percent of a construction company, which is 1000

i own 10 percent of a construction company, which is 1000 shares. but the company is insisting on holding onto the certificate for the shares. is that legal. and is it possible for them to simply run my shares through a shredder? i have signed for the shares and have held the certificate, but they will not release the certificate to me. the reason for not releasing it is because they dont want the certificate to get lost or destroyed. aside from the certificate i have no real way of proving that i own shares. what i am wanting to know is if shares are have to be monitored through an outside souse, or if there is a way for me to force them to release the certificate.

I filed a complaint pro per in the District Court alleging

I filed a complaint pro per in the District Court alleging patent infringement. After the defendant pro per responded, I amended my complaint alleging unfair competition. The defendant has moved for dismissal and I naturally want to oppose. I don't see this case going to trial for reason the defendant is located on the East Coast and touts that he is impoverished. The impartial and fair judge of this case set a briefing schedule for the defendant's dismissal motion and pleaded that she, in due course, will rule in chambers. This case is now about 150 days old and neither myself or the defendant have shown the judge one bit of evidence. At this juncture, I intend to prevent a manifest of injustice by showing the judge some evidence to refute claims the defendant made in his dismissal motion. I intend to have two witnesses, located on the East Coast, sign and date an affidavit that I will lodge concurrently with my opposition. What I have done so far is to mail both of the witnesses a proposed affidavit, that I have asked them to sign and date. I mentioned, if they execute the affidavit that it would become record of the court pursuant to case number ***** in District Court Southern District of California. After the witnesses were in receipt of the proposed affidavits, I spoke with both witnesses on the phone and both said before they sign the affidavit they would have to show it to their attorney. In the event one or both of the witnesses do not voluntarily execute the affidavit(s), what legal instrument can I use that would require execution of the affidavit(s)? Is it an instrument that I can obtain from the court clerk or would I have to obtain an order from the judge?

My son wants to form an LLC, but he's under 18. I understand he can be a partner, but can't open a bank account or sign contracts, so I would be a partner as well, albeit silent except when it comes to signing things. What's a good way to structure such an arrangement? Would I be a director, but not an owner? An officer with signing authority, but not management decisions?
