Just received notice that my pay will be garnished 75% from a truck purchased 13yrs ago by my ex. At that time I found out my ex went to his friends car lot purchased the car and had somebody forge my signature. He knew all of my info since we were together but i was not present when he purchased the vehicle. He used an alias that he worked under to buy it. And since they can't locate him and obviously my SS is legal I'm getting stuck with the outrageous bill. How do I fight this?

I will be giving a speech on civil litigation from the

I will be giving a speech on civil litigation from the perspective of a businessman. I would like to reference two items:1. When were the rules of discovery changed to eliminate "trial by ambush"?2. What is a reasonable guess as to the cost of a civil trial? My thoughts are that in the case of a simple trial with one lawyer and no outside expertise the cost could be in the $30,000 to $50,000. In the case of a complex trial involving multiple lawyers, expert testimony and extensive discovery you should be prepared to spend $200,000 or more.The point of this speech is to advise local businessmen that if they seek litigation they should be prepared to pay for it.

Hi Im prose in my partition case and the judge just ordered the commissioners to partition and they determined the property could not be partition so they appraised the property at 60000 currently has mortgages totaling 74000. When I was in court I asked about if the property sold when would I be reimbursed for her half of the mortgage payments and Taxes totaling $24000.00 my ex lawyer laugh and said she owes you nothing she filed Bankruptcy.. I was never informed of her BK.. I pulled her petition and found she didnt put the 1st mortgage on the form and did not list taxes either.. She also left out the $20000 2nd mortgage she just signed with me 2 weeks prior to filing BR. I have already reported her to the Trustee and have her recorded trustee hearing. She had hid the mortgages by saying she could not find the Mortgage and it is not recorded.. A false statement its recorded in scioto county. Her father is the mortgage holder and I have never missed a payment, she has never paid anything on the mortgage. How would I stop the partition case.

If you as a nurse take and dispose of medications per a patients husbands request to dispose of the medications to include his dexeased sons medications and then 2 days later the patient calls to make a complaint that you took the medication without concent, also goes to her PCP and tells her PCP that the medications was taken without concent so now you get fired and may loose your nursing license, in the meantime you also find out that the husband has a diagnosis of ALZHEIMER'S and doesn't remember how things took place and the patient was recently discharged from hospital for accidental overdose for taking her sons medications and the ones that had been discontinued. Do I have a case for slander or defamation of character? This lie can and will affect my lively hood. Had she not lied and now decided she didn't want those medications gone so she could take more of them this would have never occurred.
