In a civil case, regarding employment discrimination. if a case is dismissed by want of prosecution, or dismissed with prejudice, can it still be pursued via arbitration? The defendant has filed a motion to dismiss with the argument that I signed an arbitration agreement if it involves discrimination matters. So I don't object to the dismissal, but will my right to pursue in arbitration also be dismissed, or is that separate from the court ruling?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: IllinoisJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Yes. I filed w/ EEOC and they gave me right to sue. I filed pro se in US district ct of Northern IL. The defendant filed the motion, but i have not filed a reply to it. I have a status hearing coming up and am concerned that if the case is dismissed, it won't go on to arbitration, which is what I want to happen.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: The case is regarding ADA discrimination and sexual harrassment. The defendant also filed a brief in support of their motion, asking for dismissal with prejudice. Thank you.

I have a friend who is Mexican-American. He is a legal

I have a friend who is Mexican-American. He is a legal citizen. He was fired some time ago, and he tried to collect unemployment. He was not allowed to collect any money. In fact, his former employer is now waging some kind of legal action against him. He was told originally that he would need to appear in court on June 2 (one week from today). Two days ago, he was told that the hearing would be conducted over the phone and that he would be talking to a "referee." I have never heard of a hearing being conducted by phone. English is not his first language, so I fear that he will be at an extreme disadvantage when this hearing takes place. The fact that it will be conducted over the phone makes it even less likely that he will understand what is going on. What would you suggest he do. Is there anything I could do to help my friend?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: KansasJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I am not certain about that. I don't even understand what sort of legal action is being taken against him.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Not that I can think of. Thank you for your help.

Hi Gerald,I recently contacted you about how to draft a response and to a complaint in North Carolina. I also attached a motion to dismiss but I think may have been overlooked. I recently got a letter from the courts apparently after my ex wife's attorney pushed for arbitration. I was wondering if you had any tips for this new process or even better if I can push for dismissal since it looks like my motion was overlooked. What are my options? This was in regards ***** ***** exa claim that I should pay for her sons cosmetic dental implants plus her legal fees to pursue payment.

I'm considering a remote, freelance editing/writing position

I'm considering a remote, freelance editing/writing position with a company based in Singapore. I am a U.S. citizen. I'm concerned about a clause which stipulates that any disputes will be settled in Singapore and that the courts/laws of Singapore apply. What is the best way to protect myself from any potential litigation or liability here? Where can I get a reasonably priced review of my contract to help to flesh out these details? Thanks!
