I am a defendant in a case that is being tried in Macomb

Hello. I am a defendant in a case that is being tried in Macomb County Michigan circuit court. The date of my court hearing is the 1st day of my starting a new job. I contacted the platiff's lawyer and forwarded the e-mail that shows my start date. I asked that the court date be postponed. She declined. I contacted the court and asked how I can file for continuance but was told by a court clerk that since I am not the plantiff that I can not ask to have the date moved. I was also served via US mail (not registered or certified) that was delivered less than 28 days from the court date, which does not allow me the time to answer the motion.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: This is pertaining to a divorce and not employmentJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I received a request for hearing on a motion in the mail and this is why I am being asked to appear in court.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Not at this time

We reported a County Code Violation about our new neighbors

Hi, We reported a County Code Violation about our new neighbors for operating a Commercial construction business, parking & storing construction equipment and vehicles on Residential their property.(Property Use: 0100 Single Family R)My wife took many pictures and videos of vehicles and noise to share with county inspector since the construction vehicles would be gone early in the morning prior to county inspection later in the day.Eventually neighbors were found to be in violation of IMPROPER USE OF ZONE/SITE PLAN-using property for commercial use and the case was in Adjudication which I believe is a court hearing.Received a letter from neighbor's attorney suggesting we could be sued for harassment if we don't cease taking pictures or videos of their property.To paraphrase the last part of the attorney's letter:Our surveillance activities are unreasonable and not undertaken for any legitimate purpose. As such, the surveillance constitutes harassment and invasion of privacy and likely resulted in the unlawful intercept of my client's private conversations.Attorney stated if we don't' cease and desist his clients will file for injunction in Circuit Court and to institute a lawsuit seeking damages, attorney's fees and court costs for invasion of privacy and (potentially) wrongful intercept of oral communications.The question is do we have any exposure to the charges above for reporting a violation of the Zoning law?Do we have any exposure to the charges above for the manner in which we reported violation of the Zoning law.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Sorry, Florida, Hillsborough CountyJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Yes, the zoning case has already been to court and they were found guilty of violating the county zoning.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Not that i can think of.

Thanks Tj, I can't seem to find anyone to take the case.

Thanks Tj, I can't seem to find anyone to take the case. They think the amount is not worth the charge for the cost of handling the case. I only have 10 days from March 28, 1017 to appeal the case. What should I do??? I do not know the first first thing about appealing and need legal help as well as legal representation. Any suggestion who?

I sued my apartment complex and the contracted towing

I sued my apartment complex and the contracted towing company for towing my vehicle and the damage sustained during the towing process. It was towed due to expired visitor permit. I have been a tenant for two plus years. Tenants and visitors were given the same temporary parking permit due the the apartment complex failure to issue permanent decals to tenants. The towing and the damage done to my vehicle cost $1397.30. I went to court on 3/28/2017 and lost due to my failure to present the judge with a copy of my lease and not having witnesses present for the towing company. I want to appeal the decision and must do so in 10 days from 03/28/2017JA: What state is this in? And how old is the car?Customer: VirginiaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I filed a suit in small claims court and went to trial on yesterday. I have 10 days to appeal the judge's decisionJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Only that, I went to the office to register my vehicle, but was told that they ( the apartment complex) would get them in the following month.
