I am looking for free access.

case documents

At the federal level you have PACER (which is free if the charges are less than $15 per quarter) and RECAP, which has a subset of what PACER has but is completely free. I'm not familiar with state-level systems.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Hi all,

I need a lawyer who can help file a class-action lawsuit against my university. I'm currently in a CUNY Graduate program for Occupational Therapy. When we entered the program, the agreed upon knowledge was that our semester of fieldwork experience was 1 billable credit for the entire semester. Tuition for those 16 weeks was supposed to be around $420.
Now they decided they want more money and are changing what was originally agreed upon by students who entered into the program 2 years ago. They are changing it to 10 credits (They have not even notified us yet- heard this from an inside source) and this is costing the students over $6,000 extra for the semester- which is unreasonable.

Anybody have knowledge of a lawyer who would be willing to take this case?

seems to me that you are lawyering up waay too fast, sure you can find a lawyer to take your money..


Step 1: find out if its even true
if its true, talk to them about it, nicely :)
if that doesnt help, get the group of people that are concerned with this matter and go talk to the power that be, together..
if all that doesnt work, write a formal letter, get it signed by all.
there is usually an arbitration clause in your schools contract, call them to arbitration, or even if there is not, you can still request that they come to arbitration, just contact an arbitration/mediation company like http://www.namadr.com/mediation.cfm ask them how they can help, this will likely be much cheaper, easier and faster than getting a lawyer involved..

Just curious, are you a lawyer?
If you don't care why would you comment?

I need state-level. I know the court.

Most state courts have online access so that you can see the docket, and some allow you to pull documents, too.  But many require you to call and/or go to Court to order each document you want (usually for 10c a page).

Anyone knows the T&C in a first time home buyer mortgage in Lakewood nj?
Does the home need to be owned for at least six months in order to qualify or even a flip would qualify?
Edit: there is a 90 day wait
So now the question is
Is there a way around it?

The T&C is different with every bank.
Is there a clause in the contract that restricts you from being able to assign the contract?

If you are flipping the house, what's the benefit of getting a first time homebuyers mortgage?
