How do you handle a situation where the lower court

How do you handle a situation where the lower court continues to hear motions on a claim that is on appeal to the 9th cir., and does not respond to your motions proving that he lacks jurisdiction? Would you file a special motion with the 9th to force the court to stop? The motions the lower court is making decisions on will be affected by the decision.

I was recently involved in a car accident because I was

Hi there. I was recently involved in a car accident because I was sleep driving. But the police has given me a text while driving record.... which is not true... I have the phone bill that clearly state that I wasn't using my phone for any matters, and I don't have a habit of using my phone during that time (way to work). So I was wondering how should I defend myself at court? If I said I was sleep driving, can they give me a new ticket for that? Thanks! I live in MASS btw.JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MassachusettesJA: Do you need to appear in court?Customer: It's not a criminal ticket.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: How much do you charge for the lawyer??JA: I'm not sure of the exact price, but there's only a $5 deposit.

Me ex boyfriend is suing me for tort and conversion because

Me ex boyfriend is suing me for tort and conversion because I refused to ship his belongings, specifically his hard drives, to him. He has not cooperated with my discovery at all, I cooperated completely with his. So he filed a request for summary judgment based completely on my RFAs and a short declaration on his part.I just finished my opposition to the RSJ, but what is clear to me after doing it is that there is just no cause of action here. I refused to ship his stuff, but I kept it safe for 2 and 1/2 months and told him to come get it if he wanted it. I don't even need any discovery, really. I want the Judge to agree with me that there is no cause of action.(His case did survive a demurrer.) Is there a way to do that? Do I file something different? or in my opposition to the summary judgment, is it okay to point out that there is not really a cause of action here at all and hope the case is dismissed?
