Hello Law Educator, Esq Long time...
Hello Law Educator, Esq
Long time no talk to, hope this finds you well. I have ADR on Nov 7th and hopefully this will end; however, I doubt if she gives up. The mediator may encourage her to settle, because they will have all the evidence, motions, etc, so I really hope the mediator will encourage her to settle, that there is too much evidence against her. Anyway, I am ready for whatever, I have done too much work not to finish it out. I wanted to ask if a pro se can ask for money for time spent, like a lawyer? I tried to look it up and find case law, but wasn't clear. It said it was up to the courts. I am requesting back rent from 2014, in the amount of $31,800.00, $20,800 in personal property, I lost more than that, but that is what I covered in Rental Insurance, 3 mold test, plus treble $2250.00,$1180.00 storage unit, vet bills $500.00, legal assistance just ask $445.00, security deposit
, plus treble $1200.00, insurance deductible $500.00, and punitive damages
, in which I have no idea how much to put, any ideas, I am actually thinking a total between 100,000 and 200,000, if we go to court I am going to go for EVERYTHING, with the evidence and discrediting everything that she swore to, if it goes to court, I honestly don't see how she can win. EVERYTHING is factual evidence in her own words, and with the rejection on her Insurance claim, because they already paid her VERY WELL to fix the problems years ago, I just don't see how she could win, but again, one can never tell with the courts, but with a jury, she may have to pay a lot more, especially in punitive damages. I moved in with everything and left with only my jeep and the clothes on my back, she almost killed my dog and made me extremely ill, which efforts that I still have to deal with on a daily basis. I am not trying to ruin her, I know she has 2 kids, but I deserve justice as well and to have everything replaced and some. Please give me your thoughts on this, I am kind of stuck and I have to put down a min and a max amount by Friday, but I ALSO cut myself short, but once I have a number on paper, I will not back down, but I just having difficult coming up with a reasonable number. I do believe that I will have my lawyer there for ADR only, so that will help. Thanks
