I had a business chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2012. The bankruptcy attorney filed a suit for default judgment claiming fraudulent transfer. I do not have the money to defend even though his findings are false. If this ends up a default judgment is it considered a civil suit. Also if I file a personal chapter 7 bankruptcy, will I be protected from this judgment.

We sell online a training program. Artists get it cheaper

Hi. We sell online a training program. Artists get it cheaper than studios. We offer a coupon for students and needy artists. A studio purchased with the artist license and took advantage of the student coupon as well. It is a VR game studio hiring many new employees at the moment and likely venture backed, albeit claim they are a startup and not yet profitable. studio is USA, CA based. We have clear legal terms of use and service and they must accept in checkout page as well. Should we refund purchase and forget about it or have we a case?

My disabled girlfriend was arrested at Walmart. She suffers

My disabled girlfriend was arrested at Walmart for shoplifting. She suffers many things including PTSD. She had an issue at self scan and could not figure out the issue. Twice, the attendant came and cleared the unit with the store ID. On her way out, she was stopped for two packages of sauce mix, retail total $2.98, not paid for and arrested. She had no idea there was an issue as she thought what was the problem was resolved but the attendant. She has a public defender. Walmart wants 10 days in jail period. The public defender wants a bench trial. This judge put a lady in jail because her two tiny dogs weren't on a leash....just saying. She had no intent to steal anything as her food stamps had plenty of funds. A bench trial in front of this judge is suicide in my opinion. She needs a good legal opinion other than the PD or mine. I recommend that all the store training records, work instructions, surveillance video, depositions etc be requested with a jury trial. Mine is an educated but not legally educated opinion only. I am disabled also with MS and can't afford to get an attorney for her. Help please.

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.

I was pulled over and the officer said he paced me. the dash

I was pulled over for speeding and the officer said he paced me. the dash cam shows me passing the officer and the car he was following but has no speed anywhere. He did not use a radar gun. There is no set distance in Illinois or training for pacing. There is also no department policy on pacing. How is this legal. He said I was doing 61 in a 45 but I know this to be a lie as I looked at my speedometer when I went past the cop. the audio has been erased from the dash cam. He had pulled out of a parking lot and almost hit me and I blew my horn at him which I assume made him mad and 30 seconds later I was pulled over
