I currently work in Yosemite National Park so I am in

I currently work in Yosemite National Park so I am in California, but on federal land. The father of my child, Mike, also works here and lives with me.Recently I put in my two weeks notice. I had planned to change our housing, which is employer provided, to Mike's name. When I spoke with our housing manager Wednesday she said the upper management said we could not transfer our housing into Mike's name because he was not the same career band as me. I advised the manager I believed we were the same level. I was told we were not and I had a week after my last day (tomorrow, Sunday) to move out of my place. I feel the short notice and refusal to transfer names is purely retaliation for me leaving my position, which is a whole other can of worms because I am assistant manager acting as manager for the past nearly 5 months without compensation.We were offered a choice between two places "new housing" and the "T-trailers" however they are very aware we cannot accept new housing because pets are not allowed in those areas, and I have an 80 pound and 25 pound dog. So our only option is a trailer. Our current place is a small 1 bedroom (best guess a little less than 450 sf) with a small back yard for the pups. The new place is a studio about 140 sf. that doesn't even have room for our refrigerator.I looked into my original job offer and I was correct that I am the same level manager as Mike. When I pointed this out, I was told there were bands within the career bands. That's why I make slightly more than Mike. This is BS, I make slightly more ($1200 more a year) because my position is seasonal. If my pay scale reflects a undisclosed level of management this means at the store the brand new to management seasonal assistant manager (same pay as me) is above the year around assistant that has been in his position for years now (same pay as Mike) and this repeats over in Half Dome Village as well. This is definitely unfair, but illegal... I do not know. Please advise.

I have filed a Chapter 13 and obtain a judgment approving

HiI have filed a Chapter 13 and obtain a judgment approving the plan. One of my creditors had sued me in the county court of Miami Dade. My bankruptcy lawyer filed a suggestion of bankruptcy in that court without representing me for other purpose. However I just checked and it shows that the case went on. A final judgment has not been issued yet. However the second trial hearing took place after the filing of the suggestion of bankruptcy I didn't participate as I believe that the action should be stayed.My question is : does the Judge have the power to continue the case even though my chapter 13 should stay Automatically all proceedings?My bankruptcy lawyer is on vacation and I would like a second opinion meanwhile.Thank you.

I had a defamation case. The other side filed for Dismiss since they believed there was no publication. I lost in the district court, the court of appeals and in the Utah Supreme court.

That is why I am asking you.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Yes. 1. I know from the company (Progressive0 agent they contacted the state agent, but the attorneys of Progressive rejected. Then, I relied on the fact that they sent me the letter via e-mail and my e-mail is insecure. Also, I insist that the e-mail is a form of publication. In my case, the letter made me a criminal, so I don't need to prove damages.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now.

I am a published author. I accidentally let my domain name, isaacmarion.com lapse, and someone snatched it up. They are now trying to charge me exorbitant rates to get it back, even though the domain is not only my business identity but my actual legal name.My understanding is that this is illegal domain squatting and that this person does not have the right to hold onto a domain that represents my identity. Is this true? And what kind of legal action would I need to take to get it back?
