Thanks so much. In your professional opinion, based on my circumstances, would the Title 22, Section 1256-1(e)(4) the attorney referenced apply. In other words, if Takeda did report to EDD mutual separation as a part of a settlement, would I "not" be disqualified based on title 22? Takeda attorney says I wouldn't be disqualified. Is she correct ?

I am scheduled to go back to court in December 2016. I was hand delivered some rental accounting records by the opposing attorney outside of the court room even though they had been subpoenaed by me to the court. I would like to file these accounting records with the court as an affadavit or other record along with my stipulation for a settlement outside of court that I have also sent to the opposing attorney and it to was not entered into the court record. What is the proper way of accomplishing this? This is a case in Superior Court of California, County of Fresno, Unlimited Division. I am representing myself in Pro Per.

How does my wife get out of a request for a deposition? Our

How does my wife get out of a request for a deposition? Our attorney just dropped us and the defense has five lawyers screaming at us and a stack of first requests 12" tall. Our case is against the trustees of my family trust who just evicted us from our home and cut off all our money because I filed this lawsuit. Long story short, these men have been trying to have me declared legally incompetent so I can't sue them for estate fraud. I've discovered almost a dozen false police reports and almost 40 pages from the local mental health department that outline the effort. The first police reports state that they didn't have enough evidence and the rest we're supposed to serve as that evidence. Over the last year they've been filing false reports about so they could do it. One year ago just after we were married they convinced my wife that she didn't know me. They told her that I was crazy and that if I found out that she had been talking to them about me I would either kill myself or kill someone else and if that happened she would be held responsible. They told her to keep them informed about everything I do that could cause concern. she told them a few strange things every once in a while but I have ocd so I do a lot of strange things. Anyway, I discovered all these reports and was able to stop them before it happened. My wife has just been diagnosed with severe ptsd, the defendants are trying to blame everything on her, saying that it was all her idea and that they were just trying to help her. It's all lies but she is so scared of going to meet with anyone to give a deposition that I don't think I can talk her into it... They've already manipulated every word she has said over the last year, there is no question that they are going to abuse her even more. What can I do? Our attorney dropped out of the case because of a deal he made with the other attorney. I'm not even joking, I literately have an email from a month ago that says "they have agreed to accept service however I have to get out of the case"... He then sent me a notice of his withdraw hearing that said the 17th but I later found out that the notice he submitted to the court showed a hearing date of the 19th so he was removed by default. I'm trying to find an attorney and the judge granted my continuance but I'm at a real loss on this one issue, my wife truly does have major psychiatric problems because of this and is most likely going to be checked into a hospital soon. The idea of giving a deposition is truly frightening.

I have a civil union in Colorado. Since the state recognizes common-law marriage and also has a same sex marriage law, does my civil union then mean that I'm common law married?

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.
