How can I defend my natural and common law rights, when the

How can I defend my natural and common law rights, when the legal system has downgraded your identity from a real body/hart/brain/soul unity to a mere fictitious /artificial entity putting you at the same level having control over you by denying your God given rights. Judges, attorneys, politicians, doctors, corporations, etc are in the same boat. I anyone in your community that have soul and conciseness of what is happening and realize that this matter is a individual choice. If God is removed from the lives on those who represent US how we can get a real justice, a real education, a real medicine, and even a real religious teaching when most of you are willing to change the continuity after live to a mere good live on earth by looking after money that has no real value and is under control of those who control us

I am a resident of California and have a question about the

Hello. I am a resident of California and have a question about the "Right to Rescind" law as it pertains to home improvement. My wife had a representative from 3 day blinds out to measure and give an estimate on new blinds for the Windows. I was sitting nearby for most of the interaction, including the point when the rep tried to "close" her and she said that she still needed to shop around and felt uncomfortable making such a large commitment without at least doing research. This was a good couple/few weeks ago. The part I missed, which she thought I heard, was when she allowed the rep to talk her into ordering the blinds. Of course, this included her signing that she read and agreed to the terms and conditions, which is where the 3 day right to rescind notice is stated. The rep didn't leave hard copy of a contract that day so, again, I didn't have cause to know a transaction took place. He did email a copy to my wife's personal email, but we do not in any way, share that email. The way the contract reads, it's appears as though 3 day blinds knows what they're doing in assuring customers are locked in once that 3 day right to rescind period passes. My question, based on some reading I've done, is shouldn't that contract need to have been signed by me as well? Or, at very least, a copy of the contract my wife signed sent to me? We are married though technically my name is ***** ***** the deed to the home (not sure if that would make a difference). Thanks so much!

I am the former CEO of a nonprofit corporation. The corporation is involved in a lawsuit where I am personally named as a defendant as well in a separate docket number. Fast forwarding to post-trial and entering of the judgement, the board chairman somehow talked to a personal acquaintance of his that practices family law in a state different from the state where the aforementioned case was adjudicated.This lawyer told the board member that the case could be dismissed because she believed the notices had not been properly delivered, but she never talked to me, the person to whom the notices were actually delivered. Never mind that we were well past the deadline for appeal as stated in both states' rules of civil procedure, and never mind that this lawyer is not licensed in the state where the case was heard, and that this particular area of law is outside of her normal practice area.In short this lawyer was able to collect some fees by telling the board chair that she could do something that she knew she could not do, i.e., she preyed upon the board chair's desperation and naivete. She admitted to me that the only reason she took the case was that she was able to bill the corporation for a trip to the city where here grand kids are located, thus she used the corporation for pecuniary gain.Is this grounds for a complaint to the state bar ethics commission.
