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.

Kennedy A wife decided on a divorce after 20 plus years of

KennedyA wife decided on a divorce after 20 plus years of marriage, she forged documents to the court claiming i never worked for about 2 years and she supported me, which was a lie i have employed for the Gov. since 1988! We got married in 1990, Then she removed her divorce papers however the information was in the system, so i obtained a copy. That is a white collar crime. After i had gotten her the liposuction at her request she changed for the worst, opening up credit cards that i didn't have access to as well her name on them all, stealing 300,000.00 of furniture from our home even though the judge said until a proper hearing with myself and her present nothing leaves the house, she stole a key from a mail depot with the key chain around her neck, the judge told her she had a restraining order because she purchased herself another home with stealing all of my retirement money from the Government by using her boyfriends identity to get it. A blue collar crime, and we haven't even got the notary involved yet She had a total of eight boyfriends, yet she told judge in court that its not against the law to cheat. The judge hasn't held her accountable for anything, the system has even tried to railroad my attorney a prestigious attorney Mr. Meyers from Rancho Baranado area so i have had to stay home for almost four months just to make sure that my attorney goes the the trial hearing that he has requested, because the system isnt holding her accountable for anything Riverside County or shall i say Hemet Court system is unfairly abusing my civil rights as to garnish my wagesunjustly, The judge even had one of my supervisors for the Government forward him a copy of my pay statement without my consent, for this reason i need have his security clearance removed from the Federal Government. so Hemet county is abusing my rights maybe because this man of color is trying to stand up because he is at no fault here. My soon to be ex wife is abusing the system and they are covering up all her mistakes and trying to force me to give up my house. It is said that women want to be treated equal however when they do crimes they don't pay the price, men still do, I am referring to my soon to be ex wife! just because she use to be a paralegal, they are protecting all her actions and trying to hold me accountable for her mistakes even after i asked them to have her hospitalized the court said no she is an adult and she can do what ever she wants because she is able to work 40 hours a week. What kind of system do we have here, Law was invented by the Greeks and one would think when the U.S. decided to run with it, that they would put their own perspective on it and stop pampering women fortheir faults. So the moral to this story is I have given this Country almost 30 years of service for the Government, Golf War Vet. since 88' still serving this country for the Federal Government, and now i have to deal with this matter. So of all my money, Shes getting 2,000.00 a month and for me300.00 a month with no kids under age our daughter is 24, and that's what they are giving her for spousal support after all her violations, at some point i will have to let CNN and all other news stationsknow what they are doing here.Now Debt collectors are approaching my door saying for me to pay back her credit cards that have her name on them and not mine at, as well as no paperwork saying that i never even had one, yet they are suing me for 10,000 plus dollars. There is two more credit cards she abused with all her boyfriends so tell me what would you do If you were in my shoes what would you do? as for the house because of her taking out loans we owe more on the house than its worth, however i need a place to stay and i prefer to stay in my home, that's why i had it built from ground.

I just had an off duty cop hassling me about having my pill

I just had an off dutycop hassling me about having my pill bottle with my meds in it. 2 of which are schedule 2 medications. I left to go find my prescription bottles,however I could only find 1 of my prescription bottles. He wouldn't give me back my meds and didn't show me ID.So my question Is in 2 parts. #1 As there is no chain of custody (he was off duty and had been drinking) do I have a case against the police for violating my civil rights, and possibly theft. As I said he was off duty. And #2 can they come to my place of employment and try to charge me after the fact with possession of a controlled substance?The supposedly "off duty" cop confiscated my property which had fallen off my key chain and searched it without my consent, however I am not completely sure he was actually a Cop. I just want to make sure that he or someone else cant come to my place of employment and hassle me, which would cause me to lose my job.Do they have any proof, it seems to me that as the "cop " was off duty and had been drinking, that he has disqualified himself from the "Chain of custody" as It pertains to a criminal case, Also If i find out that this person is not in fact law enforcement , what recourse do I have ? can you please help with my questions ?

I feel that I am being mistreated at my job! I work with an

I feel that I am being mistreated at my job! I work with an employee with ADD and I have gone all out to make him feel comfortable most of the time. If he needs something for the office I buy it with no compensation because our boss will not spend any money on the employees except for the employee that has ADD, but to a certain extent, that I can see. Then, another employee was hired around 7 months ago, is paid more than me, and is rude, etc. to me. The building manager who is not my boss, has insulted me since the first week I was employed. I have no idea where to turn and am always afraid of being fired. I do my job, work overtime without compensation, clean up the garbage weekly, etc. not being compensated and have just had enough of being used! I don't want to quit my job without finding another one, but just want to have some comfort that I will receive unemployment if I were to be fired. I am so stressed, the work is overwhelming, and I am told things that I know aren't true about my work but I can't say 'how could that be' even though I know it's not true! I am so distressed and work so hard and not being paid what I should be paid. There only 4 people on the payroll and i get along with so many people that come into the office, etc. that I have no idea what is going on! It's all men and I feel that I am being discriminated against on a constant basis. Please let me know what I can do If I have to take action. As far as taking time for medical visits, it has to be approved, and if the other employees don't have plans, etc. I finally brought a note from my dentist to let my boss know that I have to go back. I don't take vacations, days off, or lunch until lately knowing that I need to just get out of the office. I told my boss that I was going to go home for Christmas since we hired a new employee but that was a problem, needed to be approved, and it was 6 months ahead of time that I let him know. Thank you so much.****************

We were served an unlawful detainer in bankruptcy, the

We were served an unlawful detainer in bankruptcy, the superior court judge was informed by case law and bankruptcy lawyer-and even plaintiff's attorney, that it was in violation of the automatic stay and required dismissal. The federal bankruptcy court overruled the unlawful detainer as a violation, the fed district court also agreed in appeal. we lost our home and damages exceed $100,000.00, can we sue the judge for malpractice and other damages? I fought pro per on this for almost 8 years, and it is now being considered for case law by BAP. We are without what is rightfully ours due to his conduct.
