I'm representing myself now that my attorney just left the

I'm representing myself now that my attorney just left the case and am not prepared at all. My attorney basically disappeared after he made some kind of deal with the defendants to get out of the case and I just served the defendants two weeks ago but haven't yet received their response. However, I did just receive their first Request for Production of Documents, First Request for Admissions and First Set of Interrogatories. .. About 100 pages of them and the questions seem completely absurd and have nothing to do with the case. How much information am I expected to provide? Is there a limit to the extent of information that I should be expected to provide? And is it normal to dump all this on a person before even providing an answer to the original petition?

Fort Worth Police Department has a Cautionary Advisory out

Fort Worth Police Department has a Cautionary Advisory out on me on thier Dispatch computers, saying use caution, I threatened to kill police officers back in December of 2014. It never happened. I was not charged, because I never threatened police officers. I am a State Licensed Firearms Instructor, CHL holder, Level 3 Licensed Armed Security Officer. Can I sue them for libel or defamation. I think it's wrong to put out false information like that for every officer I come in contact with to see, especially seeing as I never did any such thing.

I am stuck in the middle of a particularly bad company

I am stuck in the middle of a particularly bad company dissolution between two owners: a mother and daughter. The mother in particular has made doing my job almost impossible. She verbally attacks me, accuses me of lying via email, copying other people who should not be copied, about things I have proof I am not lying about just so she doesn't look bad to the clients. Professionally, I feel like she's ruining me. Personally, I barely sleep with worry that she's going to ruin my career or sue me just to try to pin blame on someone else (she's really unstable). Do I have a case on anything here? The HR company we use is basically in her pocket and absolutely no help to me.

I have been slandered by name in an online discussion group,

I have been slandered by name in an online discussion group, in a manner that definitely is injurious to my career. Do I have any recourse?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state you're in?Customer: I have just moved to Arizona, but the slander involves the period of my residence in Idaho.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No. I have just become aware of the problem, though I expected it.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Situation: In 2002 I published a satirical novel in which the characters used realistic language (they swore a lot) and got themselves into all sorts of problems because of sexual infidelity. No sexual activity was described. In 2016 I resigned under pressure from my teaching position in a Catholic school because a dissident parents' group found out about my supposedly evil book. The headmaster defended me to no avail. My understanding is that a homosexuality scandal broke out in the school shortly after my departure, and this has increased the furor. The book is not pornographic, and the claim that it is could be injurious to my current journalism career and certainly would eliminate any further work in the educational field.

I received a temporary injunction for protection against stalking on 8-18 . I have known the petitioner person almost 10 years. She suffers from mental issues and keeps coming back to me for friendship and more including money. Her family refuses to help her same reasons. I help her and she turns around and projects most of her troubles on me. She moved out of my home again early 2016 only 1 mile from me. I ran into her in grocery store and on highway. she says I am stalking her. Should I reciprocate wit the same complaint or just go to court and see what happens.?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in? What confuses you?Customer: need Civil adviceJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: no cannot find one locally and court date is Wed.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Yes I did email and text her even though she blocked me. I did so because I wanted to know if she was going to ever pay me back and to let her know that I am aware of her new "friend" that's cohabitating with her who is probably going to be the next victim. She has threatened me many times when she gets like this. She can be physically abusive too for a 69 yr old woman. I am a 59 yr old woman with a job and a reputation in medicine and want no more to do with her. She is trying to hurt me by filing this
