Question just for Ray: Under FL civil law, if a County Court

Question just for Ray: Under FL civil law, if a County Court (not small claims) dismisses an individual officer from a corporate complaint upon motion by the Defense; and then grants Plaintiff's motion to reconsider that ruling, but upholds it after a hearing for reconsideration whereby it would presumably become "final"; what affect would still ongoing depositions have, if any, on a motion for leave to amend with an amended complaint to reinstate the defendant based upon evidence from the depositions AFTER the court's original ruling, and its reconsideration of that ruling? Simply; would the only way to reinstate be to appeal that ruling, or can the lower court reverse based upon a motion to admit the new evidence, and avoid the appeal?

I am a teacher that was accused of sexually abusing a

Hi! I am a teacher that was accused of sexually abusing a student of mine back in June. Unfortunately the police coerced a statement out of me. Today my attorney made motions to have the statement suppressed, by the way, we are in New York State. The police felt there would be more victims; however, there are none. I have 11 charges against me. I have never been in trouble with the law, thus I was released under supervision. My lawyer feels that if a plea is made by the district attorney, which there has not been one up to this point, it would include prison time. He also said that if we go to jury trial and I am found guilty, I would face much more time than if I took the plea...my question is (as this is my first time ever being in the legal system, like I said) is this my attorney just giving worst case scenario? He did say that the police did let me go with no bail, etc. and released me under supervision...I have been teaching for 15 years as a Special Education Teacher and never had any accusations up to this point...so I am scared to death.JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?Customer: New York State, June 2016JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Such as?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No.

Apartment leasing office mistakenly did not enter our pet

Apartment leasing office mistakenly did not enter our pet deposit information correctly into the contract. We were billed 0 dollars for a refundable pet deposit and 0 dollars for a non-refundable pet deposit, even though we had a pet that they knew about that was incoming. Now they caught their mistake and want $400 asap, as they charge $200 for each deposit.The contract clearly states 0 dollars for the deposit. I have a copy if you need.Can they ask us for this? I feel like since this is their mistake they need to eat the cost and not pawn it off on us.
