I would like to have a case remove the vacated judgment and

I would like to have a case remove the vacated judgment and reinstate the matter in court, even though it has been administratively dismissed on June 10, 2016 some 14 years later in as per marked inventory in New York State WebCivil Supreme, so that I can may collect monies well over due to me.This case matter began in 2002 based upon a personal loan of money. I had an attorney who took the case to court and won a judgment in the matter. However, shortly thereafter before I could collect the attorney made sexual advances in writing, which I declined and he then became derelict in his legal duties regarding all case matters, so he agreed not to represent me. Shortly thereafter, the opposing attorney for the personal loan money unbeknownst to me filed a show cause order to vacate the judgment. Later I discovered according to court records that when the opposing attorney contacted my original attorney and my original attorney accepted the Show Cause documents to vacate the judgment, but he failed mention to the opposing attorney that he had relieved himself from representing me after the original judgment. In the opposing attorney's Affirmation, he stated, “…the same counsel as of the date plaintiff brought application to amend the subject complaint (which the Honorable Court granted, but which was seemingly never followed up on by the plaintiff's counsel).” In spite of this the matter proceeded unbeknownst to me as I thought the original judgment was settled; however, a different judge granted in Short Order Form the opposing attorney's motion to vacate the original judgment. I was never served or represented by counsel during this process.Presently, I would like to know, if filing a motion to vacate pursuant to CPLR § 5015(a)(3), for “innocent misrepresentation,” upon both my original attorney and the opposing attorney that vacated my original judgment in order to collect on the original judgement or if filing a motion to dismiss pursuant to CPLR § 3211(a)(1)(3) would be appropriate to the above case matter based upon the facts given?Also, which of these legal avenues could provide me with the best latitude to eventually collect monies owed?

Answer complicated eviction summons... I am being evicted

Answer for a complicated eviction summons... I am being evicted from a house in Kansas that's owned by a Missouri trust, the trust is for my benefit and mine only. I am being evicted because I filed a lawsuit against the trustees for some serious breaches of fiduciary duty and estate fraud. It's definitely retaliatory in nature and I can prove it. I actually have an email from them that says "just don't sue and you won't be evicted". Five years ago they deleted the purpose of the trust which was set up by my late grandfather. The purpose was to provide for "health, education, maintenance and support". In its place they gave themselves "absolute and sole discretion" and are now claiming they can do anything they want. Here's the thing, it's a Missouri trust but I live in Kansas so I filed a lawsuit in MO and they just filed in KS. I need to know how to answer this eviction, and I need specifics. Is there a form I use? Unfortunately I've run out of money and don't have time to find someone to help. Can I counter sue here? I know I can probably defer judgement to the other case but I would rather counter for damages, would "abuse of process" be pertinent since the eviction is retaliatory in nature? They have no legal basis for doing so. They are claiming that I'm being evicted so they can sell the house, and that I'm no longer a beneficiary because I have violated the no contest clause in the trust. This is simply not true but regardless, that's the claim. Do I submit the email showing that it's retaliatory with the answer? If possible, I would like to have it dismissed altogether... How do I word this? Do I simply say that they didn't have the right to remove the hems standard from the trust? That's kind of obvious but that's what the MO lawsuit will determine. I filed that lawsuit a month ago but it hasn't been served yet, can you think of any reason why that might hurt me? I'm hoping to get an attorney before I serve it but this eviction date is next week. Here's another interesting detail... There are five trustees and one of them is my mother. One makes all of the decisions and my mothers name is ***** ***** one mentioned in the lawsuit. My mother wants nothing to do with these men but they control her actions. I have her on record talking about how I will never be evicted and how she wants nothing to do with these guys... This should be an interesting eviction.

I have been using Frontline Plus dogs' monthly flea

I have been using Frontline Plus for my dogs' monthly flea prevention for 16+ years with no problems at all. An acquaintance asked me for one for his dog 5 weeks ago. I gave it to him. A week later, he came to me and said Frontline Plus burnt his dog and demanded I pay for his medical bill.I asked for pictures, vet's written statement and medical report along with the vet bill.For the last 3 weeks, the acquaintance kept saying his vet is still writing the statement. No medical bill, no medical report. He gave me a picture of the supposedly burnt site and said the whole back was burnt. He refused to provide any more pictures.The picture did not show any burn, the hair is still intact. According to my vet, if it is a chemical burn, even if it is minor, the standard procedure is to remove the hair from the affected area. My vet said, from the picture, he could not see any infection, let alone any burns but he said he still require the vet's medical report, medical bill.How long do I have to wait to get this matter over and done with? I do not know why is it taking so long to provide a medical report/medical bill? How do I prevent myself from getting scammed since I had never seen a dog with that person before? That acquaintance kept dragging on, how do I know if his dog already have issues before applying Frontline Plus and that acquaintance is trying to scam me into paying for his dog's health issues? Can I set a time limit as to when he definitely have to provide me with the medical report/medical bill?
