To Socrateaser: Im envolved in an administrative proceeding

To Socrateaser:I'm envolved in an administrative proceeding in California. I'm in pro per and I'm the citizen accuser under B&P Code Section 24201. The hearing is set for July 9, 2012. The respondent is represented by an attorney. The case is in front of the Office of Administrative Hearings. I want to file a motion for summary Judgment as I feel there are no trialable issues of fact. My main complaint is that this licensee misrepresented a material fact in his license application by ommiting "hidden owners". After this application, in seperate actions, two courts have ruled there were "hidden ownerss"in this licensed premise. I have these rulings (certified) and the application. The first ruling is a small claims judgment and the other is a ruling from a family court stating there were "hidden owners". Is there a (motion) in administrative proceedings I can use like a motion for summary judgment?

My new court date was scheduled for 11/29 due to my not being

My new court date was scheduled for 11/29 due to my not being able to serve my ex-husband because he was in a rehab facility. He is now out and has asked the court to expedite the hearing due to wanting my son to return to him and his school there. I was served with his statement on Friday and my new court date is now 11/1. I haven't had time to hire counsel due to this new date being so soon. His statements are all untrue or twistings of the truth. What do I need to bring to the first hearing? Do I need to bring arrest records? I have character references that I've had been people write for me but that is all so far due to the short notice. How do I respond to what he has said? Do I need to write my response down and file it with the court? Or just respond to what he has said when I am before the judge? Also, is it possible to hire an attorney this soon? Before Tuesday?
