Ray The bogus creditor's counsel filed their motion to

RayThe bogus creditor's counsel filed their motion to substitute plaintiff due to bogus merger without leave of court and nine years after they filed their complaint in trial court and during the automatic stay (Chapter 13). If they amend their complaint over objections doesn't this supersede their original complaint making their partial summary and summary judgment voidable? The Bankruptcy Court dismissed Chapter 13 for filing document deficiency and later order on motion for relief from dismissal order was granted. Can a creditor proceed to file pleadings in trial court if the bankruptcy is dismissed and a week later motion for relief from dismissal order is granted? The case wasn't closed for more than three months after multiple pleadings were filed in trial court.

There, I am in the process of a very, very ugly divorce.

Hi there,I am in the process of a very, very ugly divorce. I am a former CPA that supported her husband for 13 years, and had to retire b/c of a relapse of Cystic Fibrosis at which time he became extremely abusive.While I was sick, he stole my largest client, a $100M government contractor. He became CFO. He has now been there for 9 years. He told me his salary was 75K for 6 years, he was actually making $450K, bonus plus equity. He was hiding assets. During his tenure, he became involved with a woman that owns a small business. His largest contract with US AIDE came up for renewal, they needed a small business to meet SBA requirements. He formed a partnership with his girlfriend's firm, did her books, negotiated her contracts, gave her 40% of the contract or $40M in business, in exchange he took stock in her company. He is VERY smart, he kept all numbers "below the radar", I became suspicious b/c he sleeps with his phone under his pillow, tackles me if I try to look at it, hides his computer. One day I looked in his closet, found his computer and all the documents between the company he works for and Jenny. He is extremely techncially savvy, he codes his emails, however, an IT forensic person quickly decoded messages and verified what Ii knew.My question, I live on social security (2k), he said if I try to divorce him or tell anyone, he will deem me insane, have me committed and take my children. Do I have grounds to sue the company as a result of forming a partnership with a company that was formed b/c he was sleeping with the owner?Is it illegal (I know it is immoral) but is it illegal to spend 65% of working hours with his girlfriend, (hotels, restaurants), however b/c they have a partnership they are charging their time as work related.....I can prove otherwise b/c of emails.

I have an Illinois Agriculture law question My ex-landlord

I have an Illinois Agriculture law questionMy ex-landlord (contract ended the end of February) wants me to pay to have his corn moved because I always did over the years. We had a 50/50 crop share agreement. I told him that I did that as a benefit for him. There was never any words exchanged to have a verbal agreement, I just did it.I don't think I should have to pay to move his share, he thinks I should have to pay to move the corn.What is the law?Who is responsible?
