Award of Attorneys Fees: The False Non-Equivalency

No one forces any party to get an attorney. It’s for that party’s own convenience.  On the other hand, the party litigating pro se (self represented; also “pro per”) usually does so for lack of funds to pay for an attorney.  The party with an attorney saves his/her own time and effort; the party without any attorney must work full-time as his own attorney.  He … Continue reading Award of Attorneys Fees: The False Non-Equivalency

Lawyers Commit Suicide

by Ginger Marin This morning, CNN ran a report about a plethora of attorney suicides.  They’re apparently #4 on the list of professionals who commit suicide the most.  Although the report highlighted a bunch of lawyers in Kentucky, it did state that, in general, stress was the cause because their profession deals with so much conflict.  The report forgot to mention lying and cheating (theirs).  … Continue reading Lawyers Commit Suicide

Law & Lawyers: What a Scam

“As more and more of our people devoted themselves to the law, the law had to become more complex to justify them all.” – This quote comes from an episode of the sci-fi TV Show “Farscape”  (on air in the year 2000) in which an alien described his planet’s perverted legal system. Shit, even aliens and entertainment writers know that the legal profession is a … Continue reading Law & Lawyers: What a Scam

Big Bully Bank Case: Part 13: Complaint Against Judge

On April 2, 2013, I filed a complaint against dagger lady judge with the Commission on Judicial Performance.  Not that I expected anything to come of it, of course, but because it was something that I really felt needed to be done.  That judge was so prejudiced against self-represented parties that I simply had to say something.  In my complaint,  I also cited her refusal … Continue reading Big Bully Bank Case: Part 13: Complaint Against Judge

Big Bully Bank Case: Part 12: Final Observations

On March 22 we headed back to court for a final appearance before dagger lady judge to tell her that we’ve all done our parts  to conclude the case.  Except, not everyone did his/her part.  The slimy stooge of a realtor and her peacock-strutting, bombastic, blithering, brain dead bozo attorney absolutely refused to abide by the settlement terms. I made sure the judge knew that … Continue reading Big Bully Bank Case: Part 12: Final Observations

Big Bully Bank Case: Part 11: Mandatory Settlement Conferences

Once the court sets a trial date for your case you can be sure you’ll have to run an obstacle course to get there. The defendants don’t want you to go to trial and neither do the courts.  That’s why, after the summary judgments, they have the MANDATORY Settlement Conference.  Anyone left standing after summary judgment is now hauled before a mediator judge then blindfolded … Continue reading Big Bully Bank Case: Part 11: Mandatory Settlement Conferences

Big Bully Bank Case: Part 10: The Other Defendants’ MSJs

About a week after the banks sent their motions for summary judgment/adjudication, the attorneys for the local trash out company sent their motions and within a week after that came the one from the property management company.  Actually there were two MSJs from “PMS”.  They sent separate motions against each Plaintiff.  This is what’s referred to as “MSJ gang-banging” in the legal trade. Paper Cuts
 … Continue reading Big Bully Bank Case: Part 10: The Other Defendants’ MSJs

Big Bully Bank Case: Part 9: The Banks’ MSJ

MSJ stands for Motion for Summary Judgment.  It’s a way for a party to an action to claim that there are no issues at hand thus no need for a trial.  What it really is the legislature’s and court’s way to cheat citizens of their constitutionally-guaranteed right to a fair trial.  From my perspective as a non attorney litigant, I’ll break this down the way … Continue reading Big Bully Bank Case: Part 9: The Banks’ MSJ

Part 7: Big Bully Bank Case: The Property Management Service Company

I’ve mentioned these guys in my prior posts but they deserve a 21-gun salute.  If it were not for companies like the nationally operating property management company, the banks could not effectively mismanage the properties they acquire after foreclosing and throwing people into the streets.  This company advertises itself as a property preservation or property management company working on behalf of banks and mortgage servicers … Continue reading Part 7: Big Bully Bank Case: The Property Management Service Company
