Is there a time limit as to how a judge has before answering

Is there a time limit as to how long a judge has before answering a letter. For example, I have just been involved with a legal matter and was already conceived. But the opposing party is unsatisfied with the court Judgement Order and is now, writing a letter asking for permission for a motion to reconsider. On the other hand, my attorney have made our reply letter to the judge to deny the other party's letter, but to this day, still no answer from the court. The Judgement was entered on June 1, 2016. The opposing party's letter to the judge was filed July 07, 2016 and our letter was sent June 17,th 2016.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MinnesotaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No the only thing filed after the entry of the judgement order were the two corresponding letters to the judge.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Yes, during the actual date of trial, the judge gave the parties two choices: A. Do a receivership or B. continue with a Binding arbitration without the right to appeal. We choose to do a binding arbitration without appeal, but apparently, the other party is trying to make light of the issues already presented in court.

I am a Registered nurse in Texas. I was under investigation

I am a Registered nurse in Texas. I was under investigation for alleged abuse. I retained an attorney who sent me a fraudulent letter of "dismissal without prejudice" on state letterhead. I went to the board and was given a letter of "dismissal without prejudice" that was different from what my former attorney gave me. The second and third letter from the board had no file or case number ***** no seal indicating the original was on file. I had no type of hearing or was ever present or offered a reason why it was dismissed without prejudice. My former attorney hired a criminal defense attorney for my small claims case against him. My rights to due process was violated. Can I sue the board of nursing?

I am not entirely sure this is considered a legal question,

I am not entirely sure this is considered a legal question, but hopefully someone maybe able to help. Recently I have been admitted to my dream university after transferring from a community college within the same state. At this community college there is of course a residency policy to be considered for in-state tuition, after 1 year of attending this college I met the requirements included in this policy. The university I have been admitted to has declined me in-state tuition even though both institution's policies underline the same requirements. Can this University overlook the previous institution's approval of the identical policies?

A judge has not gotten back to us in three weeks about an injunction we are waiting for .We legally do have a deed for parking in front of our commercial building and the business next door has blocked all our parking. Recently, they had the fire dept. Suddenly Put a fire lane after 15 years in front of our store parking. We have no parking for customers at all.There has been cross easement and a legal document proving this all the years we have been there,and suddenly they are allowed to put in a fire lane, and they also put up signs that have not allowed our customers park in front of their building. The document state cross parking for the 3 buildings.For 18 months they have gotten away with this. They continue to do this so we go out of business. No local lawyer will take our case because of conflict of interest. The owner is pals with everyone in city hall. We had to go to another town for a lawyer. And now the judge isn't and hasent got back on a ruling?We had one lawyer, in the town early on ,and paid 2,000 dollars to him, and then he dropped us, "conflict of interest." ️No local lawyer wanted the case and now the judge won't rule?We are not allowed to contact the judge we were told.

I trapped a feral cat on my property and attempted to

I trapped a feral cat on my property and attempted to deliver it to our local animal shelter. As part of the process, the clerk asked me to sign a document stating that I owned the animal and guaranteed that it didn't have rabies, etc. When I refused, because it would be a completely false statement, she said they couldn't accept the animal. Is it legal for the city to force me to sign an obviously false statement in order to use a taxpayer funded program?
