Q. Is there a procedure for a court to follow to see if a registering lawyer is competent to represent a defendant ?
A: Don't know what you mean by "a registering lawyer", but in any event, Courts do not screen appearing lawyers for competence. If you are referring to an Assistant Public Defender, the Public Defender carefully screens applicants for lawyer positions in his/her office and thereafter supervises his/her lawyers. If some real, fact-based doubt about competence of an APD arises, it should be addressed with the Public Defender's Office, and if necessary, the judge.
Q. Is it illegal to fire someone for taking a political survey the company offered, and them not liking the my answers?
A: It times past, it wouldn't be normal, but we are now in times in which the current President, from day one, decided to be a harsh divider rather than a uniter. He has caused this nation to go into a cold civil war that has now cost you your job. Unfortunately, the law does not prohibit private companies from discriminating on the basis of political viewpoint. If you worked for the government, the First Amendment right to free speech would protect your job in this situation; it does not apply to private companies. You would have a potential claim if you could prove you were instead discriminated against under one of the "protected classes", such as age, race, sex, national origin, etc., or if you were unlawfully retaliated against for asserting a lawful claim, such as for discrimination or workers compensation. Since you were not terminated for misconduct, I assume that you would be eligible for unemployment compensation, for whatever time period the politicians have allowed in your jurisdiction.
Q. Res Justia legal matter already Judged our favor. Statue of limitations . 2014 plaintiff failed trail 2007 default
A: To try to get a lawyer's response, you'll need to re-post with a QUESTION, along with a brief description of the facts of the case. Also, "Res Justia" is not a legal phrase. I suspect you mean "res judicata", meaning a thing adjudicated.
