I am scheduled to go back to court in December 2016. I was hand delivered some rental accounting records by the opposing attorney outside of the court room even though they had been subpoenaed by me to the court. I would like to file these accounting records with the court as an affadavit or other record along with my stipulation for a settlement outside of court that I have also sent to the opposing attorney and it to was not entered into the court record. What is the proper way of accomplishing this? This is a case in Superior Court of California, County of Fresno, Unlimited Division. I am representing myself in Pro Per.

Who can I contact regarding a dental practice that I paid

Who can I contact regarding a dental practice that I paid upfront for sedation dentistry and believe overcharged me for services, AND billed my insurance for some of the same services? The "Truth in Lending" form I signed had a lump sum total without a breakdown of cost per services rendered. This form had a "Fee for Services" line which stated "Any upgrade fees (the difference between the procedure costs and what the insurance will actually pay)". Once I received my "Explanation Of Benefits" from my insurance company, I saw they also paid for services, and coded the difference in cost as "This provider has agreed not to bill you for the difference between the PROVIDER'S CHARGE and the ALLOWANCE for this service." When I reached out to this dental practice, they denied any refund, referring me to this form I signed. I believe this form is misleading and vague on purpose, allowing them to double bill and "upgrade" services without telling me what the "upgrade" includes.

This may be a bit -winded but bear with me please. I

Hello, my name is William ********* this may be a bit long-winded but bear with me please. I answered a quote on Thumbtack which is a job portal for construction work.I answered quote from a ********. 4 drywall work. I end up going to her house meeting with her husband call ********** supposed husband come to find out her last name is ***** ***** are not married . So she misrepresented herself last name from the very beginning. I end up getting hired by ********** and ******** bing to do some remodeling work in their basement. To make a long story short it went sour he changed the scope of the work didn't want to pay for the extra charges and we ended up parting ways. I signed a settlement agreement to pay him a certain amount of money I made my first payment and then I felt like I really didn't owe him anymore so I didn't pay him the remainder of the settlement he ended up taking me to court and won on that settlement that I signed. I paid him the $2,068 that the court awarded him from the settlement agreement $500 of which was a penalty for not honoring the agreement in full to begin with. We signed together which also added that neither party would say anything disparaging about the other on the internet. After paying ***** he went through the Thumbtack portal where his supposed wife made the request as ******* and left me a terrible review slandering my name decimating my character and possibly ruining any future business that I would obtain from this website. I want to know if I have a case of defamation of character or slander or at the very least breach of contract on his part against this man. He had no right in my opinion to give me a review on a quote that I did for a woman whose name was not ***** but bing and misrepresented herself from the very beginning.

I have a question regarding recent small claims hearing and

Hi, I have a question regarding recent small claims hearing and would like advice on the next step in the process.We filed a small claims suit against a seller who defaulted on a UTAH real estate transaction and we are entitled to $10,000 in liquidated damages per the contract.The Defendants did not appear at the hearing but rather sent their realtor to represent them. At the end of the hearing the Judge stated, "at this time I'm leaning towards a judgment of $10,000 for the Plaintiffs" - but he did not issue a formal judgment. He scheduled a date in October for the two parties to appear for a ruling. He mentioned the two parties get together to solve case prior to this date or Defendant will have a settlement/judgment. We (Plaintiffs, our realtor, and broker) are concerned that the Defendants' realtor did not quite know what was going and will not convey the proceeding with his client (Defendants). Our broker offered to email the Defendants' realtor to clarify the course of events with him in the hope of him talking to his client (Defendants) for them to understand that a judgment will be made if this is not solved prior to the ruling date. We have told him to wait for our direction on this letter/email.Questions:As Plaintiffs should we have our broker reach out to Defendants/Defendants' realtor to explain what occurred and make them aware that the Judge is leaning towards a $10,000 judgment?Do we do nothing until the October ruling appearance date?Can Defendants show up on ruling date with a lawyer and/or others and present new information to the Judge for review and consideration?Can the Defendants request a new hearing?Thank you for your time and expertise.

Hi, I just signed a mediation agreement 5 days ago and now I am having second thoughts. Do I have a timeframe to retract or do I have to abide?JA: Because laws vary from state to state, could you tell me what state is this in?Customer: Florida.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Yes. He says I have to abide. My question is do I have a few days to change my mind as when you buy a house?JA: What advice did they give you? Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: This is not about real state. Is a civil mediation agreement in Florida.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Do I have the right to retract after I signed the mediation agreement because I am unsatisfied with the terms. No payment has been made yet. If I say no, what happens ?. I am the Plaintiff.
