I run a non-profit corporation for youth sports. We (the

I run a non-profit corporation for youth sports. We (the board of directors) voted to not invite a volunteer coach back for the upcoming season due to complaints from our league, the officials association, other coaches and a number of the parents. This individual has been arguing the situation ever since he was told he would not be invited back but his son was still welcome to play with us if they chose. There was an additional meeting after the decision to listen to his supporters (4 of 36 families) and the vote was still to support the majority of our 93 family team and not invite him back. Since that time he has continually called some board members, given organization information such as protected email addresses to other, sent the decision to some families asking them to contact the league which they have. The league has told us they will stay out of organization business. He continues to spread fallacies, rumors and private information. Does he have the right to continue to slander the organization just because he was a volunteer?

I had a case pending and my lawyer died I had paid him 3/4

I had a case pending and my lawyer died I had paid him 3/4 of his fees the person over the estate said I could not get anything back because the money is tied up in probate. We never made it to court and the person over the estate got ahold of another lawyer who is acting as a legal advocate he was under the impression that the case woulde be dropped and when we went to court they are going to put the case off again because they want to charge me with another offence in which he told me that he would not be able to take the case because I could not pay him and I did not qualify for a public defender because I made to much eventhough I spent all my moneyon the first case I am one check away from going under.The person that accused me wants to recant his statement I know for a fact he tried to call the court himself he is a minor 17 almost 18 but he was afraid his father would find out and he's affaid of being hit and the person that he did call did infact call his father who is pressuring him to say the things he said. what am I to do for legal help?

What are the ways in which a case can be dropped or

What are the ways in which a case can be dropped or dismissed after the lawsuit is filed? You wouldn't believe what I've been through just to get the defendants served, every possible trick that can be played has been played. The politics involved here have made it unbelievably difficult to bring this case to court, the defendants are literately billionaires and have even gotten to my own attorney. I've been on this website on and off for over a year complaining about this case so the odds are, whoever picks this up might already be familiar with it. I'm the beneficiary of a trust and the trustees have commited a number of torts against me that include false imprisonment, abuse if process, intentional infliction of emotional distress, forgery, one heck of s case of defamation and more. I just served the petition last week but fought like crazy to get it done, my attorney had flat out disappeared and I had to track him down and threaten to hold him responsible for missing any dates. He was almost willing to accept a malpractice suit for not serving. My question is this, how could my case be dismissed or dropped at this point? The first status conference is on 9/15 and my attorney isn't lifting a finger. He said he could ask to extend the dates in order to find an attorney and I'm trying hard to do that but what should be happening at this point in the game? The trial date hasn't even been set yet, in fact, I haven't even received their answer yet but I know that it will basically say "to heck with you". I feel like my case is slipping away and definitely isn't being monitored, if there is a sneaky way of getting it dismissed these guys are sure to try it.

I have asked and gotten a few different answers to my question.I was fired from my job. My employer accused me of using the company credit card for personal use. He fired me by text and sent a FedEx. He never showed me what charges he suspected were personal. I was in charge of buying supplies for the office , supplies for marketing and company parties. I disagree that I used it for personal use. He said he was reporting it to employment dev department.What else can he attempt to do? And what are my rights?I think my boss is retaliating against me for complaining of a hostile environment last month. He was verbally abusive in front of many employees many times to me.Is this a civil issue. A criminal issue.
