My great nephew died January 2016 when he quit breathing,

My great nephew died January 2016 when he quit breathing, under the care of his paternal family. The autopsy indicated that "something" triggered a reaction to his airway that caused him to quit breathing. An investigation surrounding his death was to take place. When the final report came out it revealed very little. The father was interviewed and his parents confirmed his story. That was it, no environmental conditions were taken in to consideration. They did not contact the maternal family (my family) at all or the boy's doctors to underscore any conditions that may have brought this on. We have no answers and the investigator will only defend the report that he wrote. He is the head of that agency but we could take this further up the line? We just want some answers and the paternal family will not respond.

If a defendant gets dismissed from s case before trial can

If a defendant gets dismissed from s case before trial can the plaintiff file against that person again? My attorney just dropped me right after serving the defendants, there are six total. I can prove that my own attorney did so after making some sort of deal with the other lawyer. I'm desperately trying to find another attorney but right now I've got a stack of first requests, a motion for a protective order (long story), and I just saw on the website that an attorney paid for a dispositive motion to dismiss for one of the defendants. There's no hearing date listed and I haven't been able to reach anyone at the courthouse. I getting ready to turn in a request for a continuance but what can you tell me about this motion to dismiss and what are my options, I'm also being evicted from my home right now because infield this lawsuit against the trustees... And I mean right now, the movers are taking stuff out of the house right now. How much time do I have to respond to this motion to dismiss and if it happens, will my attorney be able to overturn it?
