There was a clause in...
There was a clause in rental contract, If Broker wins the law suit against customer,," SELLER pays all the lawyer's fees, interest,paralegal fees. everything, I was a Lessor and I signed as a lessor, they still sued me, i can not afford $300 an hour lawyer, but they do. Judge told plaintiff's lawyer to file a separate motion to collect their lawyers fee, and I answered their complaint in court stamped file, judge told their lawyer to reply to me by March 1. I got a letter from plaintiff's lawyer, they decided not to answer to me, are they a violation court order? or this is nothing to court system?

Hello. Give me a moment to review and type my reply.

They are probably not in violation of the court order if they chose to not reply at all. If they filed a reply late - then you can have it stricken for being untimely and in violation of the court order.

Have I answered all your questions?
If so, please be sure to accept my response and post a positive 5-star rating.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
