WF ~ Just a thought:
“[since]…… the trial judge that dismissed [the]case [ruled not opinions], … the lender did was criminal and the lawsuit was"evidence heavy." [with proof of their misconduct]. (would my interpretation be correct??)
If yes, then why not at least make anattempt to contact the plaintiff and try to resurrect the “… settlement offer.”. Use the worthless attorney argument with them~ tell them all you want to do is put this behind you and move on, but, if theydon’t want to do that then they [the plaintiff] will leave you no choice but tohire another attorney, or, continue pro se.
