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?

I am a computer consultant. I have a client who has a habit

I am a computer consultant. I have a client who has a habit of sending unsigned contracts, which I sign and return within one business day, but they don't return a counter-signed copy in a timely manner. How long can they reasonably keep me in limbo waiting for a counter-signature? If I decide I don't want to wait any longer, can I revoke my signature authorization? Thanks.

Bill, regarding the money I'm trying to recover

Hi Bill, regarding the money I'm trying to recover involving reopening my fathers probate,, The lawyer that represented me originally did in fact write the borrower's lawyer, in return we received a letter letting me know that his client has not yet sold realstate property to pay my father back but the oral agreement still stands, when sold then debt will be repaid to my father....I believe there's a limit in the amount in a civil suit of up to do many $$ what will I be able to do to collect interest on said money if limited amount is 5000 which would leave borrower owing 15,000 plus interest... A would this all result in putting a lien on borrower's property..
