I received a notice from my attorney that he was going to

I received a notice from my attorney that he was going to submit a motion to withdraw on the 17th at 3:00 but he didn't, I called the court on the 19th and they still hadn't received anything. I checked the court website today and saw this-08/23/2016 Removed: Plaintiff Attorney Jim Doe08/23/2016 FILE STAMP 08/23/16, ORDER PERMITTING WITHDRAWAL AND NOTICE OF HEARING08/23/2016 REMOVED PLAINTIFF ATTORNEY John Doe08/22/2016 FILE STAMP 08/22/16, EXTENSION OF TIME08/22/2016 FILE STAMP 08/22/16, REQUEST FOR CLERK'S EXTENSION OF TIME FOR xxxx08/22/2016 FILE STAMP 08/19/16, MOTION FOR LEAVE TO WITHDRAWALI was waiting for notice of the actual hearing but they just approved his withdrawal, what can I do? If you notice, the defendants asked for an extension on providing their answer to my lawsuit and you won't believe this but my own attorney has been trying to get the defendants out of this since day one. Have I just lost my case?

A law firm from New York has sent my California company a

Hi there,A law firm from New York has sent my California company a subpoena from the "County of Nassa" court (a subpoena duces tecum). We originally told the firm that we would not accept the subpoena unless it was re-issued by a California court.Now, the company has resent us the same subpoena, but there is a California (SUBP-035) subpoena form that has been attached (the title is "Subpoena for Production of Business Records in Action Pending Outside California."The attachment does seem to list a California case number (even though the subpoena is from a county in NY as stated above). But it only has a signature from the NY attorney.So... does this satisfy the jurisdictional aspect of getting an out-of-state subpoena? Are we to finally comply with this? Or does it actually need a CA judge seal/signature, etc?

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.

This was heard in a real small town and the "good old boy" factor is huge.JA: What advice did they give you?Customer: He did not want to handle this, but he would be on the sidelines if I needed him.

A party claimed his attorney couldn't show hearing so

A party claimed his attorney couldn't show for a hearing so he had a different attorney at the hearing who had not filed a substitution of attorney. The court ordered the new attorney the to file a sub of attorney. A week later that same attorney shows up to represent the client at trial with no sub. In chambers the issue arises. The new attorney claims the former attorney isn't around to sign. The judge let's the trial move forward. Is there a motion to be filed to deem everything that happened in those proceedings invalid since the sitting attorney was not the attorney of record and never filed a sub of attorney?
