Legal Research Time

Now that I’ve had a chance to review Bank of America and Mellon Bank’s joint Motion to Dismiss, I need to work on my reply.  Since most of my allegations have previously been made by other litigants, my research begins by looking at similar cases in the PACER system, and finding case law that supports my case.

    GOOD LUCK in your endeavours to win your case. I have a friend who has spent over $50,000 on lawyers to fight her case against Bank of America. Her lawyer started off representing her case great for over a year, but wants more money to continue. He will not move on with the case if she doesn’t give him more money, but he has not done anything for 8 months and now she does not trust him.
