There is no possibility of me winning against Mcfarlane
"Plaintiffs claim is literally 2 sentences"
All you have to do is read this document from Trimet legal to see that I have no chance to win this suit against Mcfarlane. I never actually thought I would to be honest. I think I have a good case but without me plowing in thousands of my own dollars and getting a decent attorney its not going anywhere. If I had been smarter I would have realized that my small claim should not have exceeded $700 then I would have been able to drag Mcfarlane into small claims. Alas, hindsight is always 20/20 and I've already spent $200 on this I have no intention of spending any more. We have a union that hopefully is handling this for us. (See the last document) So far we seem to be on the losing side, even though some of the court rulings favor employees. I will go to this hearing, and I will ask for union assistance, but that is as far as I am willing to go with this.
