General Board / Law Question (Florida)
« on: November 19, 2007, 05:46:49 PM »
(not asking for legal advice)

Hi all,

I have a legal question and since I'm as poor as an Alabama dirt farmer [(how does one go about farming dirt?) that is not my question] I thought I would post it here.  By way of background, I'm an undergrad at FSU and hope to attend FSU Law in 09...GO NOLES!

Anyway, sometime between '98-'00 I had occasion to hire an atty.(A1) to handle my tenant evictions in St. Louis where I had a business and used to reside.  As happens, we parted ways and to the best of my knowledge I owed him nothing.  In '00, I filed Chapter 11 and notified all parties.  I know for a fact that my bankruptcy atty.(A2) and this other atty. were in contact so I have no reason to believe that he wasn't properly notified of my bankruptcy.  Bankruptcy was closed in late '01 early '02.

Fast forward to late '06 (maybe early '07) I received notice from a local atty.(A3) that A1 received a judgment against me for $6000 and change in '03.  This coming January, I have a court date for a Motion for Order Compelling Discovery in Aid of Execution.  I think those are the essential elements.  I don't have the specifics on the judgment since I was never notified that there was an action against me (in '03 I was already living in FL).

Since I have access to FSU Law library, I can research some of this stuff but I have no idea where to start looking.  I'd also be interested to know how I can drag this thing out as long as possible (unless it would somehow effect my law school application).  I've thought of contacting A2 and having him send a letter that A1 was included in my bankruptcy. 

Thanks for any help.

I have a gunner in my LSAT prep class.  This person doesn't really ask that many questions but every time the instructor makes a point she has some little comment like, "Oh I see that"  "Oh thats good" "I get that"  for 3 hours and 45 minutes minus breaks.

Maybe that isn't a traditional gunner, but wow is it annoying. ;D

I don't see anything in this scenario that isn't in violation(?)

I would think that the nativity scene makes the denomination of the church irrelevant.  It is essentially a gov. agent sanctioning a specific religious belief.  The chaplain spending his own money is immaterial.

My brief thoughts on the subject.

Cant help except to offer support.  You are not alone  ;D 

Just remember if it was important enough to start, its important enough to finish.  Keep your chin up!!

Finished Roy Black's book a week back.  Engaging writing style

What was that movie where a bunch of women sat around and created a laundry list of things they wanted in a man?  Then one of them was asked "Well what do you look for now?"  "I just want him to be breathing!"

Always thought that was funny.

My partner's moving with me, wherever I decide to go. But because we both want to stay in the PNW and not live in a big big city, we really haven't had too much strife over it at all.

I am suspicious that he is going along with this so affably because he is envisioning a future with a lawyering sugarmama. Which is fine with me as long as he learns to cook something more than burritos.
After slaving away at home all day, doesn't he deserve to be treated to a dinner out?   ;D

Thanks guys

I did go to the LSAC site and found the chart on Attrition.  Can I assume that the column labeled "Academic #" would be the number of people let go for poor grades?  I think the column next to it is labeled "Other #", would that cover transfers and the like?
