Ok, have a problem/question that I think is pretty unique, but maybe someone out there can provide me with some feedback.
Without going into too many of the details, my ex-boss is suing me (and about 9 other people) for some really ridiculous charges. She is completely deranged, and unfortunately, her husband is a lawyer so she is able to basically sue anyone she feels like without incurring legal fees (or working with an attorney who might actually give her advice based on the law). One of the claims against me is Breach of Fiduciary Duty...which is ridiculous because I was never a fiduciary of her company (I worked for one year as an administrative assistant). Additionally she originally filed a police report saying things were stolen; however, when the cops followed up with her, she couldn't name anything that was allegedly stolen so she claimed someone broke back in and replaced everything. (Because that happens SO often.) At this point, the cops said they might bring charges against her for filing a flase police report. Although I know that none of these charges will be substantiated in court as NONE of them happened, I am still wondering how to deal with them in the context of my applications.
Based on most of the questions on the applications, I can check the "No" boxes...however, should I prepare an addendum addressing this lawsuit, or just leave it alone? I certainly don't want to get in trouble with the Bar later on, but I don't want to jeopardize my applications by providing information that they didn't ask for in the first place. Also, this lawsuit further solidified my interest in going to law school, so perhaps it is worth mentioning? And lastly, should I contact the State Bar Association and just check to make sure that I will not have any problems later on?
