This is my states law under Oral Argument: "Any party

This is my states law under Oral Argument:"Any party desiring oral argument shall file with the motion or response a separate Notice of Hearing and upon receipt of the Notice of Hearing the Court will set the date and time for the hearing. The date of the hearing shall be such as to give each party sufficient time to comply with this Rule and Rules 7.1(a), (b), (d) and (e), 37(a)(2)(C), and 56(c)(2), A.R.C.P., and to allow the Court at least five (5) additional days prior to such hearing unless otherwise directed by the Court."My question is:Neither of us parties requested or "desired" an oral argument, so why would a judge chose to have an oral argument?

I signed a contract for $36,000 with a company called

I signed a contract for $36,000 with a company called Multiview to do online marketing services. After two months, I have discovered that this company is likely to be fraudulent. I have not seen any uptick in web traffic. I have a small company and this is too much money to waste. I would like advise on how I can get out of the contract or the consequences if I break the contract and discontinue the $30,000 of remaining payments. I am a California based sole proprietorship and Multiview is a Texas based corporation

I expect that I will be engaging an attorney. At this point

I expect that I will be engaging an attorney. At this point I am looking for guidance as to finding the attorney who can best represent me. I am a 50% shareholder in an S corp that operates a real estate brokerage. My business partner is entering into what is sure to be a messy divorce. His wife has texted me stating that she will pursue his interests in our business. My business partner has recently disclosed to me that he has some issues with drug and alcohol addiction. He mentioned that he may want to part from our business. Though he is functioning well now, and though he stated that he would not abandon the business abruptly, I want to be proactive and have a strategy and agreements in place to protect my interests as best as possible. I am thinking I need an attorney versed in business law but that has associates who are versed in divorce/family law.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: CaliforniaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Nothing as of yetJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: not at this time

My ex wife wanted to move back into our empty house in which

My ex wife wanted to move back into our empty house in which we are co-tenants. We negotiated an occupancy agreement which among other things had her paying all the monthly recurring expenses and me sharing the major repair expenses. There is a good paper trail of our negotiations. I finally signed the agreement and sent it to her. She said she would sign it when she got into the house. I asked her to send me the agreement attached to an email stating she agreed to the occupancy agreement and type her name next to that statement, which she did.After occupying the house for 2 months, she said she would sign the agreement and was going to enforce our marital settlement agreement which had me paying a larger share of certain expenses than the occupancy agreement.She has filed a contempt claim against me for not paying her expenses according to the MSA, but has always paid the monthly bills according to the occupancy agreement and never sent me a single bill in 6 months.Everything I have read indicates that under promissory estoppel the occupancy agreement is enforceable and I should be able to defeat her MSA claims with it. What do you think?

I have a question about LLC membership in the state of

Hello, I have a question about LLC membership in the state of Maryland. I have a business that was set up in anticipation of the award of a competitive license. The business is registered as a sole member LLC with me as the sole member. Other individuals were involved in the application process but we never reached a written operating agreement. Three people anticipated being equal members in the business if we were awarded the license, with certain financial obligations being met. One individual has not fulfilled the agreed upon financial arrangements. Is that individual a member of the LLC or would it continue to be a sole member LLC until a written agreement is signed?JA: Can you tell me what state the LLC is registered in?Customer: MarylandJA: Has anything been officially filed? If so, what?Customer: An employee ID number request and articles of incorporationJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: the disputing party did make some financial contribution, but no material support for the application. the contribution was less than 10% of the agreed upon amount. I sent multiple agreements over for his consideration. I am able to return the money including interest.

I saved a text message conversation of an agreement between

I saved a text message conversation of an agreement between me and another person. He offered an out of court settlement with a 4 year payment scheduled. He made several money wire and check payments following the payment timeline we agreed on with set amount and payment dates. Then he stopped. Someone just told me a contract agreement over 1 year must be formal with signatures. Am I screwed?
