My mom passed away last month in Pennsylvania. She had

My mom passed away last month in Pennsylvania. She had annuities; however, I don't know the full breadth of her estate as I believe my sister is the executor. I just received a text message from my sister indicating that I will receive 25% of the estate and my son will receive 10%. What rights do I have at this point and what specific questions should I be asking.

Misrepresentation in federal court. My ex-lawyer sabotaged

Hi Pearl. Misrepresentation in federal court. My ex-lawyer sabotaged my case so badly that I suspect he was corrupted by opposing counsel. I lost MSJ in a retaliation case.JA: You're dealing with a tough issue. But don't worry -- you're in good hands. I know the lawyer has information that can help.Customer: thanksJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: noJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Defendants won MSJ in federal court because my attorney severely misrepresented my case. He didn't submit evidence, didn't dispute many of the defendants' findings of fact, didn't mention that they lied under oath and that I had proof of their perjury. My attorney submitted "my" response to the MSJ without showing it to me first and getting my ok. I asked the judge for reconsideration but he denied because evidence should have been entered previously. The judge also wrote that it would not have changed anything anyway because I 'couldn't prove' the causation in the retaliation. However, Reeves only requires proof of pretext not causation to get case to court. I could show pretext as the defendants changed their story and their reason for their adverse actions. The judge also refused to accept the "1000 small cuts rule" as it came from an appellate court in a different federal circuit. The district court judge's ruling now hurts my chances for a malpractice lawsuit. :(JA: OK. Got it.

While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.Customer: If there is a chance I would like to appeal the SJ.

Argument court date was scheduled, I was not notified, and I

Argument court date was scheduled, I was not notified, and I (plaintiff pro se) missed the argument. The judge ordered most of my complaint (2 of 3 counts) thrown out with prejudice. I wish for the judge to reconsider. Do I file a motion or petition, and would I file a motion/petition to vacate, to reconsider, or another option? Should I consider a rule to show cause?

I am involved as a pro se plaintiff in a civil case in

Hi,I am involved as a pro se plaintiff in a civil case in Indiana that has reached the Appellate level. I am appealing an adverse summary judgment. I have presented my brief and appendix, and the Appellees have presented their reply brief and supplemental appendix. I am writing my response brief now. The issue I have is that their attorney placed a document in his appendix which was altered from the documents on record. Specifically, a balance sheet from an LLC, whereby he left out the line item that was the focus of the issue on appeal. The balance sheet was even designated as evidence by them for the MSJ, not me, then they put this altered balance sheet in their appendix. Their attorney even placed the requisite under penalty of perjury certification of accuracy on the appendix. Is this not perjury, and how and to whom do you bring this up?thanks,Ken

I filed a motion judgment with the federal court of appeals

I filed a motion for summary judgment with the federal court of appeals subsequent to a brief I filed and subsequent to a motion for summary judgment in the district court and they ordered it taken with the case for consideration by the panel. The defendants in response argued, The federal rules of appellate procedure do not authorize a Motion for Summary Judgment. Can you explain what they mean since I see several summary judgment rulings in the court of appeals on my case law review.
