Q: 

I’m Trying to Represent Myself in civil lawsuit, But I’m having Trouble Finding the Forms, What Should I do?

A:  “I am getting ready to file a civil lawsuit against another person. I have been trying to find the proper forms- I have tried the court house- legal forms on line etc. Evidently the forms and wording is very important and I want to do everything correctly-any help out there. I live in Portland Oregon.” Despite the fact that it is possible to represent yourself in court, it is rarely advisable, and your question highlights one of the reasons why. Not only are the “forms and wording very important” – but they are vital to the successful prosecution of a lawsuit. It’s no exaggeration to say that the very act of accidentally or erroneously omitting a word or...

Q: 

civil lawsuit against Employer

A:  Your post is too open ended for any meaningful response. You need to have a cause of action in order to sue. What is your cause of action? There's nothing that prevents someone from filing a civil lawsuit against an employer for any reason -- question is what the legal basis for the suit is, whether there are any statutory requirements for employee to first go another route (e.g., with a illegal discrimination suit, to first file a complaint with EEOC if he-she intends to file under federal discrimination statutes)....

Q: 

? civil lawsuit

A:  What are you thinking would be the basis for filing such a lawsuit? If it's because they are delaying treatment or denying your claim...they are just doing their job. Workers Compensation is a "benefit delivery" system. The IC/ER is required to provide treatment, benefits as provided by law. They have 90 day to accept or deny your claim. After that, there are other avenues you can pursue to continue your claim... But, because the CA hasn't done what you think they should in handling your claim, is not grounds for a 'law suit'... If you can explain further, and give more details you may get a different answer... There are very limited situations where you can bring a work comp issue into civil court....

Q: 

civil lawsuits disability social security

A:  Your post is pretty hard to follow. What do you mean "file a ... lawsuit about receiving ss disability"? Also, what do you mean by "do you have to go anywhere for a civil action"? Please clarify. Based on the few facts you posted, I will assume that you have been denied by both the ALJ and the Appeals Council and are ready to file in the Federal District Court. From this point, it is all paperwork prepared by your lawyer, or by you if you do not have a lawyer. There will be no more hearings to attend. You argue, based on the evidence submitted to the ALJ and reviewed by the Appeals Council, that you are legally entitled to the benefits (very brief explanation)....

Q: 

Filing for Retrieval of exempted assets--Q

A:  Has anyone any information for me? I know I asked many questions, but I really am at sea. I guess no one has answered because we don''t have an answer and I am sorry that no one has been able to help you.

Have you googled "How to file a civil lawsuit" there may be answers on a site. You may try and add your state name to the question as the procedures may vary from state to state. Also a university will have law books that you may refer to (can''t be checked out) to help you...

Q: 

The Nutty, Slutty Defense

A:  In my opinion, Kobe was either set up or he is a victim of a nutty, slutty woman who is looking to make a few million bucks at his expense. I agree that the accuser thought Kobe would offer a monetary settlement in lieu of going through a trial. I think Kobe is innocent and I''m glad he and his attorney are standing their ground and are willing to take this case to trial. My hunch is that the gal involved was expecting a long term liaison with glamour and excitement. What she got was a one night stand. Neither Kobe or the woman were sophisticated in the ways of a man with a groupie. Each of them felt misunderstood and exploited. Now the whole situation is public property. Very sad. suspicious Do you buy this at all? Is it credible: Quote:Prosecutors voiced concerns about whether Bryant...

Q: 

Question about civil suits?

A:  ABSOLUTELY! You can definately file suite against them to recover cost of medical bills, pain and suffering, etc. You can also try to get compensation for ongoing conditions that may have resulted from the attack. If they are being charged in criminal court and are convicted, it will only help your case. Yes ... BUT. Here is the story. Criminal law is intended to punish the wrongdoer for violaiton of the community''s rights. civil law is about ... money. If you win a lawsuit (as plaintiff), you get a judgment, which says the bad guys owe you money. It does not collect the money. It simply says that they owe the money. So, the first question to figure out is -- will these guys ever have the money to pay the...

Do I Have a lawsuit?

A:  My response: Against Lowes ? Against Lowes ? Against Lowes for what ? Are you completely out of your mind, or what ? Lowes did nothing wrong. If anyone is to blame for your situation, it''s you and your son-in-law !

Q: 

Can attorneys be sued for false accusations in lawsuits

A:  FYI, this has nothing to do with "cyber law." "Let's say an attorney files a federal lawsuit, and the accusations in the complaint toward the defendant are false. Can the attorney be sued for defamation?" Yes, but such a suit would be meritless and would be dismissed almost immediately. It would be absurd if every civil case in which the plaintiff's allegations proved to be false gave rise to a viable defamation claim. For this reason, statements made in connection with legal proceedings are absolutely or almost absolutely privileged against defamation claims. "doesn't it behoove the attorney to verify what he's told by the plaintiff?" It is often quite impossible to do...
