Two of the defendants I named have been challenged in a motion to dismiss. If I want to concede the point and allow them to be removed; do I have to file an amended complaint?The motion to dismiss has other challenges that I don't want to concede; when I make my arguments about the contested issues in the response (is my response a motion to deny their motion; or is it called something else?) I presume I ought to request a hearing on the subject?

I was sued by a past tenant for damages that I deducted from

I was sued by a past tenant for damages that I deducted from his security deposit.I was sued in civil court >$25,000.I then proceeded to file a cross-complaint for additional damages that were caused to the property and furniture. I also named his parents in the cross-complaint as they were residing in the property with the tenant.The tenant and his parents are represented by the same attorney.The amount that I am suing in the cross complain is less than $1,000.I am now worried that I will not prevail in the cross complaint against his parents because they were not listed on the rental agreement. As such, I am worried that the court could possibly award the parents attorneys fees for having to have an attorney represent them against my cross-complaint.The cross-complaint has been filed and served on the tenant and his parents.Their attorney has already sent several discovery requests on behalf of the parents (I am assuming to incur legal costs so they could later possibly sue me for their legal costs?)Is it possible for me to drop the cross-complaint against and parents and just keep it against the tenant himself?If I do that, could they still come back and sue me for attorney fees that they have incurred to date?Can I also do it in such a way that I reserve the right to go after the parents later in the future if I decide to do so?

Defendant is charged with Poss of Controlled Sub in 2003.

Defendant is charged with Poss of Controlled Sub in 2003. Prosecutor files Allegation of Prior Conviction of Felony(Nebraska). In a later motion to Suppress Evid STATE admits that the disposition of the Nebraska case is unknown at time. DEF told his counsel he was not a conv felon. State offers pleas to Defendant that incorporate he is felon. Defendant was not aware that Prior is being included in Plea(s) offers. On the 1st day of trial STATE dismisses the Alleg of Prior and offers a new plea to defense counsel. Defense Counsel tries unsuccessfully to contact defendant regarding plea and whereabouts. Defendant did not show up to court for any portion of trial. Defense Counsel objects to trial in absentia but offers to judge that he is in contact with defendant (Def never spoke to defense) Defendant Found guilty in absentia. (only 5,000 of the 75,000 secured bond was forfeited) Defendant was never sentenced. Defendant arrested in Dec 2016 for Bench warrant for case and new charges) What is the likelihood that defendant can appeal the verdicts? Is this ineffective counsel considering defense never motioned to remove allegation even though in a motion he states that Defendant is not a felon? Wouldn't the defense counsel have a motive to lie about being in contact with defendant?
