Bill!!! I have some news that I want to run by an attorney

Hey Bill!!! I have some news that I want to run by an attorney like you. It's funny I never met you and trust you more than any of the defendants or their attorney's. Thank you for your help thus far.This is what they sent me:1. Let me know as soon as you can if you would like to explore an early resolution. I would like to know before I ask Clemson to start pulling all the documents requested below (refering to my discovery). I will go ahead and request Jerry's file, the OCES file and the disability services file.They made two offers with the grade changed to a W instead of a D with both options this they have to do only because they fail to follow policy in allowing me to finish.The first option was return to classes and continue.The Second option was to get a refund of 15,575.00 and about 1,000 for my legal expenses.Neither option accepted any fault other than failure in policy. All matters of discrimination against a white male with add and ptsd were denied and my lost time and stress would be my own problem. This of course would entail me letting them off 100% from the rest of any liabilities.2. We will get the amended scheduling order drafted and send to you for review. In regards ***** ***** health records, I think a confidentiality order is appropriate and not a protective order. Please look at the confidentiality orders on line and advise if this will work. If not we will file a reply to your motion.They said that, (The plaintiff's motion includes a certification that the movant has in good faith conferred or attempted to confer with other affected parties in an effort to resolve the dispute without court action) quoting my document... and continuing with "what I stated was incorrect since I did not speak to their legal department. I replied I was referring to the fact that I tried to share documents in the past with the school and the disabilities office refused to take them although they granted accommodations that the teacher still did not allow.3. Let me know if you will dismiss ***** *****. The dismissal would be without prejudice.Despite my legal right to pursue her do to failure to perform supervisory position I was and am planning on dismissing the case in part against Mrs. ***** *****.This was offered and he said it was without their guidance or approval. He really want's me to respond before they invest time and money, but it seemed he has not reviewed the case much but I don't know.what are your personal thoughts???? This is a federally funded highly powerful university and he said it looks really bad to the school to have a student who was a former graduate now current suing the school and doing so, pro se. No one cares about the defamation of my character calling another school saying I am a shooter threat... etc. and I have evidence (even if minuet amounts) to go with this among other things that would lean the jury to favor as an overall picture and see that I am the one telling the truth about the incidents because I am. But they are going to get dirty in court. I just don't know if I should reject and mediate later or counter. I know that I would be made whole financially but feel screwed otherwise.

I am the president of SCBC, Inc which is a Home Owners

I am the president of SCBC, Inc which is a Home Owners Association in Waretown, NJ. I have been president for 17 years. Recently, there has been a very small group of people who have been causing trouble for about a year now. One of them crossed the line this past weekend.Her name is***** had designed an official looking letter and hand delivered it to every home in the association. She has represented herself as someone with authority seeking the personal contact data from each home owner. The form is available for inspection.The data she has requested is confidential data maintained by my VP in charge of Membership Services; Bonnie Cullen. Bonnie is on the Board of Directors along with 8 others in various positions of authority.Stone was told, in writing, three times, that this was unauthorized. Yet, she did it and on the bottom of her letter she has instructed the home owners to return the form to her directly, either through the email she provided or through the stamped envelope she also provided.In short, I believe she has committed mail fraud and has illegally acquired confidential data. What can I do about it. What do you suggest?Jim Portale, PresidentSCBC, Incwww.skipperscovewebsite.com (###) ###-####

I am a software developer in the midst of a civil suit

Hello,I am a software developer in the midst of a civil suit against a former business partner.Five years ago, and prior to working with my former business partner, I developed a series of computer algorithms for which I hold a copyright, and a few trade secrets that I keep secret.3 years ago I developed a software consulting firm with the aforementioned business partner.It has been 2 years since my former business partner and I separated and dissolved our business.My former partner hired an aggressive and intimidating lawyer. He threatened to allege theft of trade secrets, breech of contract, computer fraud etc... if I do not provide the source code for the algorithm I independently developed five years ago.Currently, I have no money, no job, the lawyer I paid a $30,000 retainer has not returned my phone calls in 3 weeks, and my former business partner's lawyer keeps sending letters to my house directly threatening to depose me seek criminal charges.This has been hell, I recently suffered a heart attack, and I don't know what to do.

Dear JustanswerIn the past I have worked with William B esq. If possible I would like this to go to him. But if not possible please have the best available read it. thank youThis is about the lawyer William B esq told me to get a malpractice attorney and contact the state bar You would be advised to view the history..In the past I have had problems with the computers dropping my questions if they were too long. So I will do this in parts.After months of requesting my final statements and not receiving one suddenly I get a letter from collections agency for $1400.The lawyers claim that they sent to last known address and it came back.. This is preposterously lame.1. They always sent statements by email. Why did they not do it again? Why change?2. I filled out the forward address card and no one else has reported any problems finding me?3. They have my email if you are having such problems locating me well....why did no one contact me.then?4. They have phone number. We talked twice and always ended it with the fact that I still need a statement.So the questions are on next messagecont.

When a personal, unsecured loan in Iowa was in default, the

When a personal, unsecured loan in Iowa was in default, the lender demanded paymentby a third party (not on the loan). The individual who owed the personal, unsecured loanwas also the maker of a commercial (apartment rental) loan. This was now being paid by a corporation that took title "subject to" the mortgage loan, and was responsible for it's payments.The mortgage loan contains a cross-default provision the lender believes makes theCorporation liable to pay the defaulted personal loan.The corporation, by letter, requested mediation, but was refused. (Also in writing)The corporation found it hard to pay the demanded $7,000. at once, but proposed to pay this over a one-year term. The corporation also wished, through mediation, to negotiate the acquisition of the debt instrument via assignment of the Promissory Note. It did not wish to make gratuitous payments on the debt of another, but wished to have a mechanism to ultimately collect against the individual. (Just as if a co-signer on a car loan wants the car if he pays off the car loan).It followed, when the Corporation did not pay the $7,000., the lender commenced anextremely expensive foreclosure on the apartment loan.My question. Is there an Iowa state law, or better yet, a federal law requiring mediationon a consumer loan?

My local ZBA denied my neighbor's request variance made

My local ZBA denied my neighbor's request for a variance made ONLY after a complaint to Codes and a referral to apply a variance. The structure is built zero lot line overhanging my property, despite a 5' setback requirement. Neighbor has placed the variance back on the ZBA agenda. Do I need to appear and present my numerous objections or will the ZBA follow their own rules and tell him denied is denied?
