18 Questions Answered
Q. How long can a judge keep a case pending with a motion to dismiss?
A: Usually a court will give both sides an opportunity to fully brief the issues regarding facts and law and then render a decision. The time it takes will vary from case to case. Termination in a summary procedure is a drastic remedy not favored by the courts without full briefing.
A: This question is so vague it cannot be answered well. The 1st amendment to the Constitution prohibits any law "respecting an establishment of religion", infringing on freedom of the press, impeding the free exercise of religion, infringing on freedom of speech, interfering with the right to peaceably assembly, or prohibiting petitioning the courts for a governmental redress of grievances. The 11th deals with each state's sovereign immunity from being sued in federal court by someone of another state or country. This amendment was adopted in response to, and in order to overrule, the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Chisholm v. Georgia, 2 U.S. 419 (1793). How these two fit together in your lawsuit is hard to tell. One can only guess.
Q. Does your office offer free lawyer services for disabled indivduals? Had papers served and need to file bankruptcy.
A: If we offer free for disabled individuals, why not for minorities, women, transgender people, illegal aliens, and other disadvantaged groups. Then there is the senior citizen group and the underaged group, not to mention illiterate persons, or the depressed and mentally challenged, autistic, drug addicted, criminally insane... well, the list goes on. Truly, the only class left untouched would be the non-disabled part of the white male group, if there is one, which would mean free services to everyone. Lawyers have challenges also and many cannot make a living if there are entire classes of people they provide free services to. As unfortunate as it is, there are many worthy people who need things and many who would like to give, but cannot afford to. So, my office doesn't.
