Recent Testimony questions

Good Afternoon,I have an interesting series of questions to ask.First the background;I was convicted on one count conspiracy to commit bank fraud for which I was sentenced to 41 months in prison and ordered to pay 700K+ in restitution. I have served my sentence and am now on probation. I am paying $200 a month on that restitution amount. I have never missed a payment.My former business partners testified against me. They are now embroiled in a federal bankruptcy case stemming from their behavior during the time that my crime (supposedly) was committed.An involuntary bankruptcy proceeding was initiated a few years ago, shortly after my sentencing. This proceeding also contains an adversarial proceeding initiated by the bankruptcy trustee in which she lays out a federal RICO allegation. One of the predicates within the RICO allegation is that my former business partners lied to the creditor (bank) about my behavior which in turned caused the bank to sue me and my federal bank fraud case to be initiated. The allegation is that my former business partners knew the bank would pass along their false statements to the justice department thus hindering the justice department's investigation as well as the bank's potential recovery of assets. There are (at least) eight other predicates called out within the adversarial proceeding.I maintained that I had no criminal intent and I did not benefit from the conspiracy. There were no other “conspirators” indicted.The case has been litigated in federal bankruptcy court and the judge has the case under advisement since December 19, 2015. The trustee expects a ruling soon.I can answer any questions you may have in order to clarify this further.My first question isIf the judge decides against my former business partners and all creditors are made whole do I still owe restitution?

The ADA is requesting I call in to provide my testimony over the phone. I do not believe I can secure a confidential space for myself during the phone call and I feel that offering my testimony in this manner violates HIPPA.

I am a graduate student who was award a merit-based

Hello, I am a graduate student who was award a merit-based scholarship of $12,500 per year. I was, apparently wrongfully, told by the financial aid office that this scholarship would cover my dorming costs- since I was awarded another outside scholarship for the full tuition. At the end of this school year my school revoked my merit-based scholarship because of the outside scholarship that I received (even though I received it at the beginning of this year and the award letter specifically states it would be revoked only if I was granted an other school-specific scholarship). They claimed that since my tuition was covered they could not give me the scholarship. I explained that financial aid told me the school scholarship could apply to dorming and they said I was misinformed. Now I am stuck with a bill of about $11,000 for dorming one semester. I have email evidence proving that I was told that my scholarship (that was wrongfully revoked) would cover housing.

I am a licensed GC in Indiana. We were red to paint a house

I am a licensed GC in Indiana. We were hired to paint a house last summer. My crew leader brought a guy on and let him go a few days later because of his attitude. He took me to court saying we owed him 1900.00 which is what he would have made if he was there for the duration of the job. He has no contract, or signed invoice. i went to court to explain this. The judge gave us 45 days to clear the matter up. I was going to go ahead and pay, but right after that court date the guy goes on facebook and names my company calling us liars and thieves. I took a picture and printed it out. Can I get this dismissed, we have court tomorrow.
