I am a lawyer, so I am well aware of what people are going through when they are being sued. I have been in this field for 20 years. I have been in the courtroom and in the courtroom of an experienced and experienced litigant. I know what I am talking about. I have been through it all. I am confident that I can tell when someone is not going through the motions.
This is the part where I tell you that the legal process has nothing to do with the game, but everything to do with the plaintiff. The game is not a simulation, but a story, and the plaintiff is the player. As such, the game should not be the plaintiff’s property, and they should have no expectation of privacy during the course of a lawsuit.
So, like the lawyer in the old game, I want you to move your assets during the course of a lawsuit. You are trying to get the defendant to take on a case that they are not sure they can win. But you are not allowed to use or copy any of the stuff on your hard drive because it’s all secret. So, if you ever think you have a good idea on something, you should hire a lawyer to get you to move it.
I wouldn’t suggest this sort of thing to anyone but lawyers, but I do know of a few cases where assets were moved during a lawsuit. This happened to me the other day. I had a file folder of photos I’d taken during a vacation trip. I took them with a flash memory card and I wanted the file to have a complete copy of everything. So I took the flash card and copied it to a flash card reader.
When I went to the file folder, the flash card reader was turned on, but I didn’t have the flash card reader on. So I opened the folder and copied everything over to the flash card reader. That was when I was hit with a lawsuit. I was told that if I didn’t settle, I’d have to put the entire file folder of photos on the Internet for anyone to find.
When you’re thinking about this, think about your own case. How many times have you had files that are in the cloud and you can’t access them because you have to use a special software that makes you unable to access the files. Of course, if you can’t access them, they’re gone. Even if you can, that doesn’t give you free access to your files.
The problem is that you cant access your files because you didnt pay the court fees. The court fees are huge, but if you don’t have the money to get everything set up, and file folder, and all the other paperwork, and then you dont pay the fees, then you have to put your files on the Internet.
So you’re stuck.
We have a similar situation at the law firm where we are suing a client for failing to pay a $30K-plus bill. One of the things we were told was that the software that we had to use to allow us to access the files was really expensive. That didnt make sense, that didnt make sense in the way that it was presented. We then found out that the software cost about $20 per hour.
One of the things that most of us in the legal industry try to avoid is the cost of doing business. We all love the shiny new piece of technology, but it’s expensive to keep up when there are so many other moving parts. You can’t just throw things in your suitcases and walk out the door with them without paying the cost of shipping and handling. Even some of the smallest of things can become a huge amount of expense.
