I have a case in civil state court. I did plead fraud with

I have a case in civil state court.I did plead fraud with specificity. I wished to establish a pattern of illegal acts by the company against other tenants. I also charged that they engaged in mail fraud by using the mail to charge their tenants illegal debts.The Judge initially allowed my discovery of information regarding other tenants at one hearing.The Defense objected after the hearing where this discovery was discussed extensively and they agreed to produce. They filed a motion to Quash discovery arguing, prior bad acts have no bearing on my case, and they were concerned with the privacy of other tenants.The Judge changed his mind, bared this discovery and rejected my pleading of Fraud with Specificity, without hearing arguments from me. He barred my charge of mail-fraud and RICO stating that such charges could only be brought in Federal Court.I don't want to piss this judge off, but what can I do?

Fifth Third Bank has frozen my business checking account. It

Fifth Third Bank has frozen my business checking account. It was a new account. There were seven deposits made in about a two week period totaling about $60,000. Each deposit consisted of only checks, no cash. The deposits each said they had a two week hold because it was a new account. When the first deposit was set to clear, Fifth Third denied me access to my account and has now frozen all funds. They say they are investigating my account and can hold my funds for a period of up to 180 days. Everytime I call in they tell me they have nothing to report and can not even tell me how much I have in my account. What can I do about this? They are not telling me what they are investigating or why? Shouldn't have all the checks cleared by now?

Can I request that a case be dismissed... Can I request that

Can I request that a case be dismissed...Can I request that a case be dismissed after a demurrer was overruled? We are both pro per and he is a law student. He left his hard drive at my house and 3 months later he demanded that I ship it to him. I said he could arrange shipping himself or pick it up. He sued me for tort and conversion for$200k. He eventually arranged for someone to pick up his heard drive. He owes me $10,000.Basis for request: 1. Plaintiff has not cooperated in any way with discovery. In an email, he has threatened to request "sanctions" against me for starting discovery against him. He has refused all of my discovery requests. 2. Plaintiff has recorded me illegally and admitted it. 3. Plaintiff has bullied me, given me unwelcome law advice. 4. I told plaintiff I was turning my previous attorney into the Bar, and he sent that email to the attorney. 5. After the Meet and Confer, he refused to give me a chance to fix anything, but instead filed a demurrer on my Cross Complaint. 6. He sent a different complaint to me that he did not file, but he gave the appearance that he did. 7. He is an old boyfriend. He left suddenly and moved in with another woman. 8. I am filing malpractice against my previous attorney who sabotaged the case on purpose. (Just trust me. He did. I have proof. He was not lazy; he did it on purpose.)

I work at a movie theatre; but not just an ordinary theatre.

I work at a movie theatre; but not just an ordinary theatre. The theatre has a full bar, full kitchen and is ran more like resturaunt. Somehow they have found a loop hole in the system that says theatre workers are not entitled to overtime. But this isn't just a movie theatre. It's a dine in. I went back over my pay slips since 2012 and found that I had worked 50+ hours of over time on some weeks. Totaling to be about $20,000.00 in extra wadges I could have had if they were not exploiting this loop hole. I believe the reason movie there's were not entitled to over time originally because all they did was rare tickets; but this is no longer the case this is a full food operation. I have worked a 24 hour shift and multiple 20 hours shifts. The job is damanding. Do I have a case here?

I am a medical professional in the process of incorporating

I am a medical professional in the process of incorporating my practice (S-corp). My question is specifically regarding Professional Corporations (P.C.s). Though I will still be practicing medicine, a significant portion of my income will be coming from a website that I run that is only marginally involved with medicine. Should I still form a Professional Corporation type of S-corp or would a general S-corp be more appropriate?

I paid several thousand internet marketing course/mentorship

I paid several thousand for a internet marketing course/mentorship and signed a contract that was under the website/businesses name. The two business partners had a big disagreement and decided to no longer to business with each other. One of the partners started his own website/business and moved over all the content that was on the website that him and his partner had previously. Prior to all this happening, I received an email saying that they were just "rebranding" to a different name, but then the truth finally came out about what was going on between the two partners. I was moved over to his site and I feel I should at least been given an option to stay where I was at, especially since I signed a contract under that businesses name, or get my money back. What can I do?
