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.

I am a Registered nurse in Texas. I was under investigation

I am a Registered nurse in Texas. I was under investigation for alleged abuse. I retained an attorney who sent me a fraudulent letter of "dismissal without prejudice" on state letterhead. I went to the board and was given a letter of "dismissal without prejudice" that was different from what my former attorney gave me. The second and third letter from the board had no file or case number ***** no seal indicating the original was on file. I had no type of hearing or was ever present or offered a reason why it was dismissed without prejudice. My former attorney hired a criminal defense attorney for my small claims case against him. My rights to due process was violated. Can I sue the board of nursing?

Would this case appeal to a litigation funder? I listed a

Would this case appeal to a litigation funder?I listed a lucrative duplex for sale despite being ambivalent about selling it. My agent had been trying to get me to sell it for years, as documented in my archived emails. Even as she went through very difficult health crises, the agent would dog me about selling the duplex. There was half a million in equity, at least, and a profit of nearly $3000/month. The loans would be paid off in 20 years or sooner. I had a mental health crisis when a doctor prescribed Ritalin for me. It was horrible, but he thought it would work if I also took Adderall. Enough said. I became paranoid and decided to leave my lovely home and move to a town in the desert where I have never been. I listed the duplex with the agent who dogged me so much. It wasn't n her part of town, and she didn't do a market analysis. I told herin an email that my bot***** *****ne was $1.2M. Somehow, it got listed at $950K. I told her to raise it to $1.5M. Immediately an all-cash offer with a 2-week escrow came in. The buyers promised to verify their funds the day after escrow opened, although I didn't notice that on the contract. They didn't close on the scheduled day. By then I had begun to suspect they were trying to raise money. I asked my agent three times for proof of funds. She ignored two emails and after the third once said "Yes, I saw it (proof of funds). I asked her for a market analysis, and she sent me nearby recent solds. I told her to cancel the deal and re-list for $1.4M. She refused. Then I told her just to cancel it. The buyers were in default. She told me that her broker said I was still in escrow and the buyers were within their inspection period. They weren't. They wrote a 10-day timeframe for inspection. Now the bad part. My agent had sent a notary to my home and had me sign a stack of papers on the 3rd day of escrow. I didn't know that signing the grant deed meant I have already given up all my leverage. I truly did not know that that document is used to transfer title. (I thought quitclaims were how you handed over a sold property). I had zero leverage, and my agent kept saying her broker told her I had no choice, that I was "in contract." I was told the buyers were waiting for the city report on any liens for code violations, which no one had ordered initially. Later I saw that amended escrow instructions included a statement about the city report. Delay in getting it could not be used as a reason to delay closing. The buyer and seller had to wing it, and the seller would deal with any issues directly if the arose. I stopped cooperating, and signed no more forms. There was one that said all the buyer's conditions had been met and instructed escrow to go ahead with the closing. It was custom-made and said "seller" (singular) where I was supposed to sign, and had places for both buyers to sign. I didn't know about it until months had passed past since the unwanted closing, when I finally opened the closing docs that had been mailed to me months before. My signature had been sloppily forged, to indicate that I wanted the deal to close. I did not, and everyone knew it. to recap: the buyers were in default from day 3 on, and again on day 14. They used a disallowed excuse to delay closing, and someone forged my signature. With the proceeds, my newly low income, the premature death of my husband, I could never buy in that excellent "hot" area again. I tried investing in other estate and have netted $1000/month before income tax.In the present, I have only filed the complaint, answered the broker's discovery, and filed a first amended complaint. We haven't heard from the agent, but she told the broker's attorney that she didn't do the forgery. The broker has answered both complaints.I don't see why that deal closed. Someone, who knew I didn't want to close, sloppily cut and taped my signature to a form I did not even see, much less sign, the instructed escrow to do the opposite of my express demand. If it is true that I had a right to cancel, that person harmed me. If the buyers wrote the offer in bad faith, with no cash on hand, and my agent helped conceal it, she induced me to enter into or stay in a deal I would not otherwise have entered. The buyers or their agent were very close to the escrow officer; the asked for the agent by name. The buyers are pretty well off. They own about $9,000,000 in real estate, $3M of which they live in, the rest rentals. The broker's company is approximately the 20th fastest growing companies in his highly populous county. Revenues have risen from $9,000,000 to $25,000,000 in 3 years, according to a regional business magazine. Finally, my 4 year "friendship" with that agent, and this whole deal and conflict, is well documented in email. Phone calls were rare.Would a litigation lender bet on it?

My mother in law is 96 years old. She fell recently breaking

My mother in law is 96 years old. She fell recently breaking her leg and hip and is now living in a nursing home, The Woodlands Heath Care and Rehab. Center, located in The Woodlands, Texas.In order to get her into the facility she had to forfeit all material items and funds. She complied with this except for a car she owns. It is a 1999 Cadillac, it is worth about $3500, according to Kelly Blue Book. I bought the car for her when my father in law passed so she could get around without trouble.She is having health problems, falling down, fainting, low blood pressure etc. and I do not think she should be driving in her condition. She insists she is going to get well and start driving again. The car is title is in her name but I have a lien on the car.The reason I put a lien on the car is so when she passed it would come to me and my wife so we could sell it and get some return on the purchase price and not be liable while she is diving.The problem is she will not sign the title over to me. She wants it parked in the nursing home parking lot so when she feels like driving somewhere it will be available to her. Her son has a power of attorney for her but will not sign the car over to me. I think he wants it for his son.The questions in all this are;1. Is my mother in law allowed to own the car without the Social Security knowing about it?2. Can her son sign her name on the title and license it in his name without my permission?3. Where can I find the rules and regulations for the Social Security accepting a patient into the program?

I am worried about my lawsuit getting dismissed due to

I am worried about my lawsuit getting dismissed due to inaction.I hired an attorney to sue a realtor who forged my signature on something I was vehemently opposed to signing. The result was devastating financial loss in the form of my only robustly profitable rental property and the income that formed the backbone of my retirement income.It's been 2 years since I hired the first of two attorneys. I let him go a year ago when he refused to help me respond to discovery and was demanding $6000 to continue, despite having $2400 of mine and a retainer that said he would never ask for more than $3000 at a time. The second attorney revised the complaint by adding causes of action related to tortious interference in my business relationships with my former tenants, filed it as the first amended complaint, and helped me respond to discovery.There was a case management this month, but it was postponed at my attorney's request.Recap: The forgery was in June 2013. I hired a lawyer in July 2014, filed the lawsuit in May 2015 and a filed a first amended complaint with a new attorney in June 2016. My legal costs to date for both attorneys have been about $24,000 and I couldn't be less happy about progress than I am now. I haven't sent out discovery, for example, and it's essential that we talk to the escrow officer, the buyers, and their agents to find out what they recall about my agents' disclosures about me and my desire to cancel, if any. Three years out, they might have forgotten, and can easily get away with saying they have forgotten, even if they haven't.I imagined an aggressive advocate fueled by indignation and righteousness, fascinated by damning evidence in the contents of 3 years of email between me and my agent, which I organized for ease of study. I have only discussed the case once with the new attorney, and I don't know if he sees it as I see it. What I lost was rental income until the day I died and an asset to leave my brother's children. He is focused on the selling price being too low, but that's chump change compared to its income should I live another 30years, and likely to devolve into dueling appraisals; I am outraged that it sold at all.Could the defendants (the agent and her broker, who repeatedly told her not to cancel the escrow, she said at the time) move to have this case dismissed for lack of prosecution at this point? Would it be considered malpractice if my attorney, by neglecting the case, allowed that to happen? Finally, should I look for attorney #3 at this point?

I have a medical practice, with 4 employees. It was a well

I have a medical practice, with 4 employees. It was a well established rule that office account checks were ONLY to be signed by me. This rule was not only verbalized to my staff but also included in the list of office policies and rules for the practice.In conducting an audit it was discovered that one of my employees had written and forged my signature, ( the employee's identity confirmed by graphoanalysis.) The audit demonstrated that the forged checks totaled greater than $500,000.00, and the office checks were forged as far back as 2007, and continued until mid-late, 2014.There is irrefutable certainty who wrote and forged my signature on the checks. I aver that this individual needs to be prosecuted. Please let me know what the statute of limitations for such prosecution is in Alabama. Thank you very much.
