Well, this case has now been moved and is part of my JAMS arbitration.
The attorney representing her, notified me about a month ago that to communicate through him once I sued her last month.
I know that "ATTORNEYS" can't communicate with represented parties.
I am pretty sure that I can continue to communicate with the party directly, as I am pro se.
The legal assistant showed up in my inbox yesterday in dealing with the case in JAMS, and I was a CC to the email.
It made me think twice about whether I really couldn't communicate directly with the legal assistant who is being sued?
Everything I read only applies to attorneys not communicating with represented parties. I am seeing exceptions to even this when the attorney is acting pro se for themselves in a personal action.
