I was terminated in my job at a school district. As a Union

I was terminated in my job at a school district. As a Union member I requested a Union attorney for representation, my Union Rep. told me that the Union Attorney refused to represent me .My Rep. explained to him that I had valid arguments to the 5 write ups I had received in the matter of 4 weeks and fellow employees who would speak on my behalf ..He told the Rep.that it didn't matter what evidence etc. I had he would not take my case because it was a no win situation..even if it was heard in Mediation and I prevailed ..the School Board would vote not to reinstate me because the Admin. had already advised them not to,( because they had an agenda with the opening my dismissal created). It's been suggested to me that instead of going after the District for wrongful termination..I should be suing the Union to which I paid Union dues right up to my termination... Another employee in my department was terminated before me ( was also refused representation by Union Attorney.) .He was made the scapegoat and fired for an incident that an Administrator was responsible for (said Admin was put in charge of investigation). My observation of this was divulged to this Admin. by another. Thus my exit was put in gear with my Union's blessing as I was pushing to file a No Faith grievance against them (also at the time). I might have bit off more than I can chew.. but both entities are corrupt and wrong and I have no choice but to try and right the wrong.. I must go against these two Goliaths. Who first..how (what Court System).. and are there any Attorney's out there willing and able to represent honestly.. for justice in the workplace and against a Union? Their two pocketbooks are far greater than mine. Again what and how do I go about this?

Please consider the following. A defendant is being sued for

Doug, please consider the following. A defendant is being sued for $2,100 plus $200 in fees for a debt. The matter grew out of a billing dispute with an in-network health care provider. The defendant can demonstrate the amount owed actually is $650, as this is the amount shown on the defendant's explanation of benefit form from the insurance company as being the patient's responsibility for the service. Furthermore, the patient was given a firm price in writing prior to service of $300 (hence the cause of the dispute). What amount carries the greatest weight in court, assuming a judge presides over the trial rather than a jury?

I am a freelance copyeditor. I I recently completed a job

I am a freelance copyeditor. I I recently completed a job for a client, but the client is unsatisfied. For this particular job, no contracts were signed, as it was only a $250 job.I feel as if this client was out to get a free service to begin with, because I did a very full job and the client is looking for every reason why a full refund is required to her by law, even though these reasons did not factor into her dissatisfaction.In my initial proposal to her, this is what I said of my services:"As an editor, my work usually includes revisions for grammar, punctuation, spelling, vocabulary, syntax, format, flow, and general errors in typing. I also make it my job to note any inconsistencies or questionable areas in your content that you might review and offer you ideas, but I am happy to discuss your specific needs.All editing is done digitally, and all changes are tracked so that you can see each revision made if you so wish."That plus a sample edit of my work was the extent of what I gave the client as far as what to expect. She is saying that she is dissatisfied with the number of remaining errors in her work. I explained that editing is a multi-level process and that remaining errors are to be expected after I am finished. I also apologized if there was any misunderstanding of what she could expect, mentioned that I would add a disclaimer to my page for future reference, and offered to go back over it again to do further work if she was unclear of what to expect.She is, however, rejecting my offer to do further work, saying that she understood that there would be errors remaining, and saying that she will only accept a full refund. Despite her admitting that she understood that she would not receive a perfect job, though, she is saying that because I did not have that disclaimer stating that she would not receive a perfect job I am required by law to give her a full refund (again, even though she said she understood without the disclaimer).So this is my question. Am I required to give her a refund in this case? I think I did my job very, very well, but she is not budging.

Educator Esq. ONLY The motion to reargue/ reconsideration

For Law Educator Esq. ONLYGood day,The motion to reargue/ reconsideration that was denied, which is part of this appeal does not have memorandum of judgment. The order online only stated denied. Practice book stipulates that it is the responsibility of the appellant to make sure that there is memorandum of judgment on file. I have been to Court trying to ask for that. The clerks keep acting like they do not know what I am talking about or they will tell me the person that deals with issues like that is not available. I have called several times and they asked me to leave my number that somebody will call me back and they never do. What should I do?. (This is the regular with second appeal)
