While my husband and I were separated but trying to work

While my husband and I were separated but trying to work things out and dating, he used to send me naked pictures. We were together trying to work on the marriage (or that was what I was made to believe for over 1.5 years). One day I was talking to his sister and she was asking me questions about her brother and I told her we were dating and working things out and getting together. Well she asked me for proof of those texts and some of those pictures as proof. Well, I screenshot some texts and I think I sent her lower body naked pic as proof (I didn't understand why she was asking me but I found out later on that it was because he was with another woman at the same time). Would that a considered dissemination of pictures and a felony? I did not publish them or threaten anyone with them or threaten or make them public. I was wondering if he could file charges against me for sending it to his sister? This was done over 1.5 years ago and he knew about it at that time.

I received a letter from my internet provider (Comcast)

I received a letter from my internet provider (Comcast) informing me that LHF Productions, Inc has filed a federal lawsuit. It appears that the lawsuit directs Comcast will provide my name, address and other information to them. The documentation I received mentions the downloading of a movie using Bittorrent. Do I need to be concerned? Is there something specific I should do?

I have a contract with a company in that I represented in in

I have a contract with a company in Virginia that I represented in Virginia in 1996-1997. They have not paid me on two orders that they received during my representation. One is for 10% on a $500,000 project,and one is for a $5,000,000 project with the State of Pa. They had told me that they would have to complete the jobs and determine the amount of profit before they would pay me and that is why I put off any leagal action until now. During the delay in my pursute of this I have moved twice and had a divorce along with a case of Colon Cancer (stage 3) which almost took my life in the year 2000. The commissions should be around $550,000. I know this will have to be determined in Virginia and there may be a statute of limitations dead end involved but I may need Erin Brockovich to get anything out of this. I would like to have a letter sent to the company (Ensat Corp.) and the Principles to see where they stand on this. It may have only been an oversite or change of address problem and they may have been holding my payments in an interest bearing account until I contact them.JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Charles ********** ************** Pa.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: noJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no

I have 13 defenses to respond to that are untrue,

I have 13 defenses to respond to that are untrue, immaterial, or repetitive in nature and I have written a response to give the court but since I have 23 other responses to other defenses I want to group these into one motion and respond to all at once. Will example below suffice?UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURTFOR THEDISTRICT OF SOUTH CAROLINACase Number: ********************John DoePlaintiff/Petitionervs.Jane DoeRespondent/DefendantPLAINTIFF'S RESPONSE TO THE DEFENDANT'S AS FOR DEFENSE(S) 1st, 3rd, 10th, 12th, 13th, 15th, 16th, 17th, 26th, 28th, 31st, 32nd, 36th, and 37thPlaintiff, John Doe, respectfully ***** ***** this information in the complaint argues on more than one occasion that 42 U.S. Code § 1983 - Civil action for deprivation of rights and material facts are in dispute. I, John Doe, am a witness, and my testimony about how the defendants violated my civil and constitutional rights must be weighed against the defendants' evidence. "Take as true all allegations of material fact stated in the complaint and construe them in the light most favorable to the nonmoving party." Warshaw v. Xoma Corp ., 74 F.3d 955, 957 (9th Cir. 1996)."The issue is not whether a plaintiff will ultimately prevail but whether the claimant is entitled to offer evidence in support of the claims. Indeed it may appear on the face of the pleadings that a recovery is very remote and unlikely but that is not the test." Scheuer v. Rhodes , 416 U.S. 232, 236 (1974).Defendants including UNIVERSITY __________ acted in bad faith with deliberate indifference especially in the fact that the plaintiff made them aware that there actions were causing damage and/or they admitted to knowing that their actions would cause damage, yet they continued to move forward with violating the plaintiff's constitutional and civil rights condoning faculty behavior and leaving the plaintiff with no further relief by declaration as this was the schools final ruling.With review of the other responses to the defendant, and knowing thus far the defendants have withheld all records from the plaintiff in regard to his or their negligence the plaintiff pleads that these defenses be barred and need no further response. Furthermore the defendant's derelict school processes, policies, and procedures that are placed upon federally funded entities, such as Clemson University, to have them abide by afforded rights to the individual by the Constitution of The United States of America. The plaintiff was also denied due process by a student trial in front of his peers, so his only recourse was to make this a federal case literally. Thus far, the defendant, JANE DOE has avoided the process server and the delivery of summons also neglecting to accept certified mail. The plaintiff prays that the court disregard the defendant's defenses listed above as the plaintiff declares they are untrue, immaterial, or repetitive in nature and prays that the court will proceed with the plaintiff's case.
