BV80...Well, heck, those are such smart and direct questions, you make me feel stupid for not already providing such info...
Credit card debt. Of questionable merit, supported by questionable documentation. Court-mandated arb., already appealed to trial de novo, with arb. judgment sealed. I will pretty much have no choice but to move to vacate the judgment, because I refuse to pay the man, given that his itemized invoice listed charges for email correspondence which I did not receive, and repeatedly refers to the plaintiff as a "client" (He says "clerical error" - there were 12 "clerical errors" in a 17-item invoice. I say Freudian slip. Potato/potato, either way, at best he is admitting utter incompetence. An arbitrator of debt disputes who can't create a single-page billing statement without 12 clerical errors.)
I have his actual email to the plaintiff, in which he reminds "counsel" that she would be entitled to certain costs, if she were to submit a revised pleading and ask for them...and then tells me "for the record..." that since I had somehow learned of the email, knew what was in it, and the plaintiff didn't accept the advice, that there was no violation of the prohibition of ex parte communication. Then told me that I should feel bad, after he tolerated me and my non-lawyer-ness, basically.
The "counsel" in question sent at least 8 or 9 private emails. I have 5 of them. She just flat out told me that she did nothing wrong, and if she did it was irrelevant, so just drop it. Then she gave me unsolicited and misleading legal advice, a violation of the Bar's RPC.
These are not rocket scientists. They are moderately bright people who think they are powerful and smarter than everyone, and who have become accustomed to behaving with impunity without fear of consequences. It frankly disgusts me, and I'm fighting back that urge one gets, when faced with people who abuse their advantages, to become a crusader.
Thankfully, it's just not in me. But I'd like to at least address these 2 individuals as best I can.
