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.

My property management company was contracted to take

Hello, my property management company was contracted to take pictures when listing the property for rent. They were also supposed to conduct inspections of the property every six months; they did not do either and the amount I was able to rent for suffered. Does this breach of contract entitle me to damages for lost rental income? I was only keeping them around until they finished processing a tenant eviction through to judgement, but it has been two years and they cannot explain why that has taken so long either. Do you think that I have a case against All County Community Property Management? I was going to report them for ethics violations with Property Management Boards as well, thinking that might help. Thank you for your time.

My ex live in girlfriend, is a blackjack dealer at a local

My ex live in girlfriend, is a blackjack dealer at a local casino. I live in Las Vegas. During our extremely short term relationship, during a fight, she called and initiated a chargeback on a purchase we had mutually agreed on. This lead to a domino effect, because the transaction was for about $1800 and was to China, to purchase toys, as I had taught her about a business reselling item during christmas time. When she initiated this chargeback, it lead to my account being frozen for months and to this day I have restricted access, not to mention the contact that was extremely profitable refuses to do business with me anymore.The ex-gf signed a notarized Affidavit to cancel the chargeback and under the portion of "I am now accepting this share back with paypal because of the following circumstance" she wrote "This transaction was completed by self".Now, I'm upset, because my college degree is in ethics, and I feel very strongly about right and wrong, and she literally called a financial institution, created a false report, then had a change of heart, and ended up signing the affidavit admitting to canceling the chargeback because the transactions "was completed by self".She is licensed with the Nevada gaming commission as a blackjack dealer, I am wondering, what if anything I can, or should do given these circumstances, I feel it is wrong that she can make a false report, that I am still feeling the repercussions of to this day due to her whimsical nature.

I am suing my landlord eviction and the return

I am suing my landlord for constructive eviction and the return of my security deposit. That landlord was using two businesses to conduct his personal home rentals. Both businesses are LLCs. The judge has already heard the motions to dismiss due to partnerships and agreed that as he is a member of both and the organizer of the main one, that I had the right to sue him and both businesses. Tomorrow is the real hearing. The lawyer says he is trying to protect the partners in the other business - the business he made me go to to pay my rent and where he conducted all business transactions with me. My issue is my hearing is tomorrow and I just learned that this lawyer is the organizer of another LLC where the main partner from that business he's trying to protect is a member. I feel this is a conflict of interest. What do I tell the Judge tomorrow? I've printed out all the LLC documents from the WV Secretary of State's website proving this.
