Dear Customer ,

Thank You for posting your legal question today. I'm attorney Bill assisting you with your criminal and civil question today.

It is a criminal offense to forge a document under the laws of forgery in NY.

A person is guilty of forgery in the third degree when, with intent todefraud, deceive or injure another, he falsely makes, completes oralters a written instrument.

Criminal possession of a forged instrument in the third degree is aclass A misdemeanor."

The DA will prosecute the above offense.

In relation to defamation laws and civil liability, there is a general privilege from defamation during litigation so you would need to show some damage to your character outside the court itself.

In that case you could sue in civil court for identity theft, libel, and fraudulent interference with contract.

Depending on the extent of damages it could be a Supreme Ct case.

Please consult a local attorney for a full review of the facts.

Please follow up with me if you require any further information or clarification.

In return remember to rate positively today.

do i have a law suithe petition me into court

You can counterclaim for malicious prosecution / bringing a frivolous suit and seek damages n the civil court for the same. If there was communication of the alleged falsity you have an action for libel or slander also.

If any elements of the lease were changed by the landlord, as I indicated, you can sue for libel and identity theft in addition.

i will give you a bonus if you can tell me if i start a law suit , can i get a stay re the frivolous suit that is against me (presently active) and put a hold on itbecause i made a motion to the judge for the court to hire its own forensic at my expense, i was denied

The court has the entitlement to impose sanctions on a plaintiff bringing a suit without cause :

"

c) For the purposes of this Part, conduct is frivolous if:

(2) it is undertaken primarily to delay or prolong the resolution of the litigation, or to harass or maliciously injure another; In determining whether the conduct undertaken was frivolous, the court shall consider, among other issues, (1) the circumstances under which the conduct took place, including the time available for investigating the legal or factual basis of the conduct; and (2) whether or not the conduct was continued when its lack of legal or factual basis was apparent, should have been apparent, or was brought to the attention of counsel or the party.

As expressed in Park Health Center v Country Wide Ins. Co., (N.Y.City Civ.Ct.,2003):

“In determining whether the conduct undertaken was frivolous, the court shall consider, among other issues, the circumstances under which the conduct took place, including the time available for investigating the legal and factual basis for the conduct, and whether or not the conduct was continued when its lack of legal or factual basis was apparent, should have been apparent, or was brought to the attention of counsel or the party.” ( Id.) [22 NYCRR 130-1.1(c)]."

Requesting a stay based upon frivolous conduct is not the correct motion, you can file a motion to dismiss based upon frivolous conduct and no showing of a fact basis to bring the suit against you.

A malicious prosecution civil suit is brought after the present case terminates in your favor, so you will need to see it out or present a motion to dismiss.

SO I hope you rate FIVE STARS today before your exit.

file a motion in a different court re frvolous conductwhat court would that belast of question

You can only file a motion in the present court.

Because you never counterclaimed for malicious prosecution/ frivolous litigation you need to bring a new civil action if you prevail in the present, and only after the present action.
