I lost my case in California Small Claims Court. I took out

I lost my case in California Small Claims Court. I took out a $10k loan and loaned to my friend for business and told the Judge it was an Oral AgreementMy friend told the Judge that I did not "loan", that I "gave" him my borrowed money to invest into the business and the profits made will be used to pay back for my loans I took. My friend said he did pay me and has a record of the checks shown that he paid me.The Judge said I should've had this in writing and so it would not be considered a "gift" and ruled for the defendant.I am still not clear on his ruling. My friend admitted some of the money was repaid to me. If I did "give" my money away or if the Judge thought it was a "gift", there be no repayment.Does a lack of a written agreement automatically lose the case, even if my friend admitted repayment?

My question is about Rule 23 Circuit Courts of Hawaii,

My question is about Rule 23 Circuit Courts of Hawaii, provided below.Here, the judge always has the prevailing counsel write the "order". I understand that has is to be delivered back to court within 10 days, along with "approval as to form". And if the losing party objects they have 5 days to submit the objection. Can this "objection" include the reasons that you object, or does it only apply to an objection that the "order" was done incorrectly or contained content that was incorrect?Rule 23. SETTLEMENT OF JUDGMENTS, DECREES, AND ORDERS.(a) Preparation. Within 10 days after a decision of the court awarding any judgment, decree, or order, including any interlocutory order, the prevailing party, unless otherwise ordered by the court, shall prepare a judgment, decree, or order in accordance with the decision, attempt to secure approval as to form from all other parties, and following such approval deliver the original and 1 copy to the court.(b) Party Approval or Objection to Form; Delivery to Court. If there is no objection to the form of a proposed judgment, decree, or order, the other parties shall promptly approve as to form. If a proposed judgment, decree, or order is not approved as to form by the other parties within 5 days after a written request for approval, the drafting party shall deliver the original and 1 copy to the court along with notice of service on all parties and serve a copy thereof upon each party who has appeared in the action. If any party objects to the form of a proposed judgment, decree, or order, that party shall, within 5 days after service of the proposed judgment, decree, or order, serve upon each party who has appeared in the action and deliver to the court:(1) A statement of objections and the reasons therefor, and(2) The form of the objecting party's proposed judgment, decree, or order.In such event, the court shall proceed to settle the judgment, decree, or order. Failure to file and serve objections and a proposed judgment, decree, or order shall constitute approval as to form of the drafting party's proposed judgment, decree, or order.

Relocation and FL 90 day time frame. I filed motion to

Relocation and FL 90 day time frame.I filed motion to Temporary relocate due to a promotion. Got temp hearing within the 30-day staute. During temp hearing my motion was denied. I think it is largely because of all the lies that was told by the ex and I did not have evidence to rebute his allegations because the lies were so outrageous (i.e. I ran from state to state trying to keep our child away from him when in actuality the court approved the last 2 relocations) that I did not think a judge would actually believe it. Someone told me that FL statue says something to the fact that the judge must have a trial within 90 days of the temp hearing. Is this true?I am thinking of filing for a rehearing on the temporary hearing. If I do so, will the 90 days for trial be from the date of the original hearing or the date of the rehearing?

I filed for a MOTION FOR COURT DEFAULT in accordance with 1.500(b) against the Defendant for failing to file any kind of Responsive Motion or Responsive Pleading to My Complaint within the twenty day rule [he did file a Motion to Transfer and that is why the Clerk would not give a Clerk's Default]. Can the Defendant come at the 25th hour and at the Hearing for Default present the judge with either a Responsive Motion or Responsive Pleading???
