We had the hearing a few days ago. I thought my attorney did a good job of explaining the problems with the house and the issues with the improper notice. Dick wasn’t there (thank goodness). His attorney was pretty upset and acted quite indignant. He said that the way the notice was handled was the normal way it was done when both parties already had an attorney. He made it sound like we were trying to get away with something on just a technicality (which, technically, I guess, we are trying to do).
The Judge’s decision came out this morning and he sided with Dick’s attorney. He said that he believes the discovery needs to be completed and that both sides should schedule a deposition (being asked questions by the other side’s attorney) of the other sometime in the next month or so.
I told my attorney that I would be available for a deposition whenever he can schedule it. I actually can’t wait to tell my story to Dick’s attorney and I hope Dick attends (he has the right to under law, but isn’t obligated to.)
I am deposed first because he is the one who brought the lawsuit. I hope I won’t have to wait long, the sooner the better in my opinion!
