For" - Bizlaw" On same case 1) because the court never

For "Richard - Bizlaw"On same case1) because the court never stated which lease is the true lease I plan on asking the court 'again' which is the lease. The judge refused to answer that at the November 10th meeting.* one reason is that the lease provisions on the termination of the lease each have two different timeframes. Exhibit 3 requires five day notice, and exhibit 4 requires a ten day termination.* the actual notice to terminate stated "not less than five days" yet it in fact gives from August 20th thru August 30th. I assume to be safe with mailing time frames as it was served certified mail RR, and regular mail.If the court holds that exhibit 3 is the true lease then my argument is that the appellate term held that lease could not to be the current lease between the landlord and it's shareholder due to the evidence the respondent provided (leases failure to have language adopted at a meeting of shareholders). For this reason they are judicially estopped from accepting that lease. (Y/N)* Notwithstanding the fact that exhibit 4 does not have that language either...that leases provision for termination requires 10 day notice. That should be the dagger in the chest (inter alia)I want to make sure that even though they said not less than 5 days but gave actually ten days that it is fatal. (Y/N)2) I have noticed that the petitioner starts screaming whenever I make a point. Like:Q Mr. Cole is there a reason why the notice to terminate says "not less than five days" when exhibit 4 states ten days?A I'm not an attorney.Your honor I would move to dismiss this case as thst the petitioner failed to comply with the terms of his own lease in the termination....Petitioner Objection your honor....Court You must ask questions...you may make legal points later.

I am preparing a RICO suite against a publicly traded bank,

I am preparing a RICO suite against a publicly traded bank, the banks board of directors failed to take any action and/or allowed the banks CEO and the banks lawyers to engage in conduct prohibited by law. Can I name each board member as a defendant? they have an obligation to know whats going on. I dont know if they knew of the conduct and ignored it or if they knew it and encouraged it, naming them would allow me to find out in discovery. Any suggestions.
