Esq. ONLY. Now that the Court is saying that the plaintiff's

For Law Educator, Esq. ONLY.Now that the Court is saying that the plaintiff's Judgment has been decided and is not included in this appeal, what should I do. I thought I was fighting both since that judgment was obtained by Fraud and Connecticut Law stipulates that judgment obtained by Fraud can be attacked at anytime and also that the only remedy to fraud perpetrated on the Court is to vacate that judgment. I have a clear and undeniable evidences that plaintiff fabricated invoices added a full page and brought entries from other pages to that new page and made a new invoices with it right before trial, those entries are still on their original pages word for word. The original invoice was already in the plaintiff's attorney's possession and already filed in the Court during Pre trial. That new page was fabricated with those false entries to fool the Court which is tampering with physical evidences which is a violation of 2005 Connecticut Code -Sec. 53a-155(a) (1)(2) (b) . The invoices were already in possession of plaintiff's attorney before it was tampered with and during testimonies when the plaintiff was asked about the discrepancies on the invoices, the plaintiff was confused and asked my attorney to asked his attorney who furnished them to Court, this confirmed that his attorney conspired with him to commit Fraud and his attorney misrepresented the invoices to court to obtain that judgment which is a violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act § 807. 15 USC 1692e] (2). (A) (10). The Court is ignoring all the initial fraudulent entries and the tampering with evidences which was just discovered. The word fraud has never been used by any of the judges in any of the judgments in this case since this case has been dragging on for seven years. My Question is what should I do about the plaintiff's previous judgment that court is saying has been decided, should I file a motion of reconsideration or a complaint to the U S.District Court before it gets to two years that the petition for Certification was denied? Appellate Court ignored my Counterclaim iissue that was on that appeal and that is the Counterclaim that has Fraudulent entries issues and used Counterclaim my attorney attempted to file late that was stricken to decide the case. The Couterclaim on appeal was explained clearly on the brief and the appealate Justices stated they understood the Counterclaim that was not on appeal during oral judgment and read the differences. The Counterclaim I filed as pro se which was issue on appeal was never metioned with the Fraud issue on it. The date, time and issues on the Counterclaim that was not on appeal were quoted and used for that decision. The appellate decision did not see a violation of due process because the Counterclaim that was stricken was not allow to be heard by Fact Finder, but it will be if they had used the Counterclaim that was on appeal that was filed on time. The decision stated that there are no issue on counterclaim not heard and that is because fraud issue was not on the wrong Counterclaim that was used on the decision. It is obvious that the Court is deliberately avoiding this Fraud issue because the Lawyer and his Lawyer are well know in the area. Many Younger Lawyers told me that it is well known by other lawyers in the area that he is Fraudulent and he has taken several clients through the same thing I am going through, just that those could not give a fight like I am doing. Also that the Judges know he is guilty but they can not say so. I do not know the power he has over them.What is your advice , Should I go to U.S Disrict Court or file another complaint or a motion to reopen the original case in the Superior Court or go to the house of representative.?

I had a cleaning company come and clean my home. They had a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee. They did not do what was promised and did not come back to redo what was needed or promised. So I refused to pay for their services. They sent me to collections so my question is this. Do I need to respond in some way to the collection notice letting them know why it's not valid? Is it possible to retain an attorney to handle this?

I own a timeshare near Cancun, Mexico that I don't really

I own a timeshare near Cancun, Mexico that I don't really want. (Surprise) I have been contacted by Liesure Life Travel, LLC of Shreveport, LA and they say they have a buyer (a Mexican corporation) who has already deposited the money in escrow with Ability Funding Group, LLC near Atlanta. This group has a A+ rating by the BBB. They say I need to pay 11% to a Mexican notario publico to start the process and the buyer will then reimburse me at closing. They say it is guaranteed because the money is already there, and their good reputation is at stake. It sounds too good to be true, so it probably is, but how do I get at the truth. I would love to sell it, but not lose $6000 instead. Can you help me?

I purchased a Tracker Bass Boat from the Bass Pros Shop, in

I purchased a Tracker Bass Boat from the Bass Pros Shop, in Manteca CA. in May of 2016, In June I notified them I was having problems with the vinyl flooring peeling loose from the sides. In July I had to finally complain to the corporate office before I finally got anyone to address my problem, within a few days they had me bring the boat in and after about a week, I contacted them and they stated they would have the boat repaired in a few days. I picked up the boat and the siding appeared to have been glued back, but I also noticed that the vinyl floor had stains on it. About 2 weeks later I discovered that the glue had come undone and the sides had started peeling again. I have been back and forth with them and the corporate office, each claiming that they are waiting for a response from the other. My latest call was today to the corporate office, and they stated that the techs are waiting for photos to be sent to them from the dealership,(Manteca Bass Pro Shop). What options would you recommend. I am totally getting frustrated with them and need to seek other avenues to get this resolved. Any help or recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
