Thanks for your question.

What happened at the conference?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The Judge said we're going ahead filed an order against my sister used the rough draft of the opposing lawyer went through the first 3 pages of a 7 page financial sent them out to talk then came up with an equalization saying my sister owed 300,000 without doing the last 4 pages of their financials.They were getting crunched for time and the Judge was upset the court staff may have to stay past 5p.m,her main concern is she feels because she didn't file the N.F.P at the settlement conference she won't be able to file it for the trial if it goes to that.Judge told her you have 30 days to either accept of reject and if you reject trial will be in November.
