OK got a story.So I'm filing a motion in NY state court and I give my secretary the transmittal letter, the motion, attachments, and ask her to do a check request for the filing fee from accounting made payable to "New York County Clerk". We also sent a copy of the motion to the judge, so I highlighted the name of the judge and his address on another piece of paper for that purpose.About an hour or so later I get a call from the partner, he's like "uh, Sands, you got a minute? Stop by my office." So I do. I go in and he asks me "so did you just make a check request?" I say "yeah sure for the motion we just sent out." He hands me the check request form that my secretary filled out...Why was the check made out directly to the Judge? Fortunately we caught it before it went out the door, but had it gong out the door I basically would have been looking for a new career.
I agree with the previous posters, because although this board is the lesser of the other two evils when it comes to elitism, it still turns people away who don't fit the mold. I'm one of those people, but I find this board easier to navigate. I also feel as though the opinions expressed here are samples of what is to come, so I don't take too personally what I read and people need to have thicker skin.The search function still works for me, unless we're not talking about the same one.
Hi everyone! Im new to the board and just wanted to say hello to everyone. So far I've been reading some pretty interesting and insightful things
That's cool how you referenced a case.
I'm so far from the end of my tether right now that I reckon I could knit myself some socks with the slack.
