Dallas-Based Southwest Airlines Returns Boeing’s 737 Max To Service

"In service this week tomorrow eleven so by the time the podcast comes out it will be a day into it. We've got southwest bringing the aircraft back. They're returning their 737 max fleet to service with some dedicated routes for the first month. So it'll the routes that they'll be operating on will. Just be seventy seven max shots. There won't be any crossover. You'll know if you're on a max and there's there's no chance that if you're scheduled to be on seven three seven and gee there's no chance you'll end up on a max that's an interesting way to do it at least for the start were. That's a possibility. I can't imagine that last too long at an airline the size of southwest the right. They've said they're going to do it from month. So so i i recognize that. They're trying to assuage people's fears or make people feel more comfortable or something like that But you can good for them. I guess but they'll do that for a month. And operate among some dedicated routes and then after that things kind of open up after i guess the end of april or about the middle of april. Do we know what those rocks our budgets we do. Don't have the fullest in front of me because they they were released and then they changed slightly. But i can find the link and drop it in the in the show notes perfect They're all over the place it's not they're not keeping to just you know the kind of the ex texas or anything like that. They'll be they'll be spread out but but we'll put a link in the show notes so on the heels of of that today. What reuters is reporting is that southwest has finally reached an agreement with boeing for up to three hundred seven three seven max sevens or the dash seven hundred and thirty firm orders with an option for one hundred and seventy more south west i. I would assume that they'll probably take all three hundred eventually. Yeah south west has a metric ton of seven thirty seven seven hundreds of the nj family to replace in the upcoming years. And in. we're talking about this. Before we hit the record button that it really feels like the macs. Seven was an aircraft produced solely for and to meet the needs of south. West doesn't Nobody wants the plane beside south west. Their westjet had orders in pretty much. Got rid of them. So that's that basically leaves south west. And i think there's a handful of others but it just looking at the southwest fleet the seven three seven seven hundred is by far more than double the seven three seven eight hundred current in the fleet seven three seven seven hundred four hundred ninety two seven three seven eight hundred two hundred seven and the max is almost up to seventy

Let's talk about this yet. Government is in the final stages of talks with the airlines on one could turn out to be between a seven to nine billion dollar package for the for the airline industry. Would we start with this. Why is this happening so late. Maybe let's start here. Because we we have jerry dias of uniform who saying seven billion is now the floor on this being because of how tenuous and tough negotiations have been with the government. I'll add further context. It being other countries across the world have already. I should say dealt with their airline industry by working over some money in your estimation. Why did this take so long in the sense of right or wrong. Let's we'll discuss right or wrong strategy but why do you think we're we're perhaps in in in that scheme of things over one billion dollars has been paid to the airlines already and wage subsidies so due to pretend like this is taking a long time and that the airlines are in some sort of challenge.

So they they not only today throw this family off because they had a three year old daughter who the family says was eating a snack. Now, the idea is if you're eating something on the flight, then you're not, you don't have to have the mascot. So that was what they were saying the mom and dad did have masks on but none of that was good enough for the airline they said, they would not close the door. To the aircraft until the little girl put the mask on and of course, it's not always easy to you know to convince small children or young people or anybody to do the things that you want to do, and so I guess she didn't put on fast enough or whatever. So they toss them off the plane and then decided they were just going to go ahead and kick everybody off the plane Westjet the Canadian airline confirmed that after the flight staff were called passengers.

"Than their peers. Now, some education experts are concerned that the new protocol is being rolled out during the pandemic. Could deep in this disparities in school discipline. For more. I'm joined now by Kalen Bell Sha National Reporter for Chalk Beat Thanks for being here, killing So much for having me prior to the pandemic. What were some of the types of policies leading to disparities and how discipline was carried out in schools? Well before the pandemic. We saw disparities happening a kind of all levels of discipline, so it wasn't necessarily one kind of policy. But for sure the kinds of policies where there was some kind of discretion involved in figuring out whether or not the child should be punished. We saw a lot of disparities there so that could be figuring out was a child defiant or acting out in class. Were they not following the rules being disobedient we saw from researchers and studies that we know that those contributed greatly to racial disparities and two black students being disproportionately punished for the same kinds of behavior as their peers. Who wouldn't be punished for those kinds of things. But then we also saw big disparities and out of school and suspensions as well as expulsions. Which are more serious behaviors. You typically Right. And now we have no into kids returning to schools in some form another, um, an incredible amount of anxiety on the part of parents and I'm sure kids as well but discipline policies or not something I've gotten as much attention. What are some of the new disability policies that schools are enforcing for, at least for in person learning. For in person learning. Probably one of the biggest change is that parents will notice is around their child's behavior when it comes to social distancing and also wearing a mask. Eso we've seen several school districts make failure to wear a face mask something like a dress code violation, which is usually addressed by having the child maybe go to the office having a talk with them. Maybe taking them aside. But if the child repeatedly does not wear a face mask those dress code violations, Khun Stack up into something more serious. That could end up in the child being removed from school and being made to learn online. We've also some sometimes I'm sorry. We're in some cases you're seeing. It's not just being removed. There's actual possible like Ah, Consequences in terms of the criminal justice system. Yes, there's at least one state we've seen that could make it something like a misdemeanor, and it could be a criminal offense. Yes. Based on what we already know about disparities in house school disciplines carried out what are some of the red flags and new policies that schools are introducing. Something we've seen in several codes of conduct is that it has called attention to the fact that they will try to figure out the child's intent in what happened s O that we've seen around mask wearing as well as spitting, coughing or sneezing on a classmate that it will come down to whether or not the child intended to do so. And we know in the past when subjectivity has been laid into discipline codes that it hasn't turned out well, especially for black students. So I think a lot of advocates right now are concerned that we're going to be trying to figure out to the child intend to do these things and who will be the one perceiving whether or not the child intended to do it, so there's just a lot of concern there about how that will play out. All right, Kalen stick with us. We do have to take a quick break, but we'll be back with more on school discipline. In just a moment. This is the take away.

But all nice and there's some topics but I'm GonNa try to say unique an interesting things. This what's What other shows should we listen for your good question? I'm on Ashok this week. Okay which that Flaring or twenty four guys and Inmarsat which is one big flat inactivity and satellite operator companies is doing a online sort of Sort of an all day seminar next Wednesday the twenty ninth talking about all things passenger experience in flight connectivity. But also the news and other developments seating and I'll just all sorts of really interesting stuff sort of replacing Aircraft Interiors not replacing trying to get some similar content produced and we all miss starbucks show in Hamburg the beginning of the month so did a test run of what that video is. GonNa look like so. We can be ready to have something to go for next Wednesday. So it's A. It's been a sick day for me. Post the links in the show notes. Sure I should probably member do that idea. I'll send you a note to remind you assistant producer this week. I like to talk about. I think some of the one of the big ones the Kinda hit the news today on. We're recording this on on Tuesday. The twenty-first April Air Canada is temporarily suspending all transporter flights with the US They had previously cut back to just eleven route from twenty six or so or alone destinations from twenty six But I gotta be. I'm a little surprised they were running still running that many. This goes back to like. Why is North America's still flying planes when no one else is in a lot of ways but that's an interesting point right like why? Why are there so many flights United States? Something I've noticed is like there's a huge number of southwest flights compared to the rest of the carriers. Yes actually just chatting with someone about that literate before we started southwest today ran about thirty five percent of. It's normal schedule where everybody else's Attended twenty and up until now had been running close to fifty and on the one hand. You could say you know. Gosh that some gumption. They've got the spirit Bad Pun. Sorry they're gonNA keep moving no matter what serve customers that need to go Also I think it's stupid also like you know. Post nine eleven. They kept flying their full schedule because they wanted to be there. And yet for the quick bounce back but this is not going to be a quick bounce back and I just don't understand it. Yeah yes I mean your question about Air Canada similar I think they were flying these destinations y. Yeah I mean the borders closed to non-essential travel right. I mean it's not even like we really don't think you should. You gotta go to like a immigration officer and be like no no. This is actually important. Sorry you have to let me in record. We were told if we needed to go to Canada. We need paper on a good day fighting with the Canadian Border Patrol for other people. I've never had promised but I've heard great stories from you and others about the troubles. That can come. Yeah I just I don't get I don't get why anyone WANNA fight with border patrol officers at any level but like pushing your luck on that and so there can't have been that many people like where they are Canadians for the last three weeks. That have been like. Oh I'll just go back on the next flight now. I still got some work to do here. I it just doesn't make sense to me. Yeah Yeah and I don't. I don't think it was close to. Us citizens right so they it. It was like soft close and then became non essential travel closed. Okay so it's sufficiently closed and they just announced yesterday or the day before another day before. Xhosa Sunday but in recent days they just extending that Non Essential non essentials closure for another month. Which is why the flights are finding suspended. Gotcha okay so there's a reason for it but it's It's still weird so it leaves leaves American Delta United Really. The only one's flying to handed I. I'm not sure if WESTJET REPORTER ARE FLYING TRANSLATOR. They started them not. Yeah so and for what? It's worth Canada's now. Also requiring facemask masks of any sort just tired to shoot around your face if you forget one But anything across your face if you're getting on an airplane so interesting but yeah I mean along those. Those there was some there was a united call today right like a town hall or something that they have as their sort of like internal Staff briefing and I mean it's they're running what ten percent load factors right now on ten percent of the schedule. Really Amazing. Yeah so one tenth of what does that. Come out to like one tenth. Not Normal load. Yeah Yeah One. One percent one percent. Which is I mean. It's not I mean it's it's Kinda hard to believe. Yeah and it's and they're not alone. I mean if you look at the numbers that Tsa PUBLISHES EVERY DAY. Like traffic is down ninety. Four percent or whatever. Ninety six percent. They're suggesting that it's a huge. You know that it's there's just skeleton passengers if you look at the numbers it's worse than you think because the scans Con Bembibre concessions stand and other people working at the airport to actually I think those are automated counters of like bodies walking through machines. Not some guy checking things so you know. It's it's a lot of a lot of problems. It's no passenger so like they're really. I actually got a a message from a flight attendant friend. Working Three Twenty noted that forty five passengers on board Amazon in my seat. Because that's like double the load of normal. Yeah I saw a couple of flights. I kinda monitor united flights every now and then. I saw a few flights the other day Denver to Houston was relatively full. Ask hub to hub kind of makes sense but on a mid mid week so strange it there are some you know arguably. I'll say that's good news because the cuts are working. The capacity cuts are coming down. And so you know if you can see us. Thirty to fifty percent full flight today. That represents what would have been three weeks ago ten her five flights that we've all been five to ten percent full and so it's it's better and I don't think we want to some level you wanNA say Gosh. You need the central plains. There can't be anybody on board but that's also stupid and there are reasons. Some people need to travel by air at demean whether it's country to get around and unlike Europe for example like the border between states are vaguely still open in most cases. Yeah or or Florida or Texas I. There's some even actually stuff out though. Yeah that was. That was funny. That I think New Hampshire even has like a sort of please quarantine yourself if you get here policy got so but you know it's. I'm glad that the flights are being cut. I still think that more should be. And we'll see I mean you know but this goes back to why South West someone asks me. Do they have some sort of special deal where they are able to fly them cheaper than everybody else? I don't think that's the case. I just think you know I'll never get an answer session. Sense up into court common. Ask but like high. Why are you doing the stupid thing that no one else is doing? Rarely gets a response that I'm looking for my brother. Yesterday had to fly to Raleigh kind of like last minute from Houston and on a southwest. Flight there's a nonstop at of Hobby to Terrell was on that flight and he was him and another guy. Yeah so right I mean like you had to go so and to be fair in a lot of ways the. Us government is paying for these flights to operate by. That's the argument you can make. As they've they're covering payroll costs are seventy percent of payroll costs of which thirty percent is alone in ten percent comes back in. Warren's so fifty percent of payroll costs which maybe is in the end. Fuzzy math is fifteen to twenty percent of the full cost of Ryan the flight but the federal government is subsidized now pressures flights to make sure that people can get around because the US government recognizes that that has to happen and doesn't want to deal with another million people on employment and with no health. Insurance I think the I mean speaking speaking of like non-full planes. You actually posted a story about a new seating options and it's the in Anyang seating option. Yeah it's bizarre it's obvio- interiors is the name of the company and there. They are normal seating provider there Celsius two airlines like they're not sort of supermassive or bigger. They're not the biggest by any stretch. They're like Certainly top five and they're known for doing some creative things from time to time. And they've designed the product that is the middle seat for a single-aisle planes three three but the middle seat faces backwards. And they're sort of like a wavy divider between everybody so everybody has their own armrest got walled. Lean against instead of your neighbor. Obviously in the same space you'd have some issues of the cushion getting a little narrower which some people complain about There's concerns about like staring at your neighbor. Which is also an issue with everything else. Like that. Sort of from facing thing right. No one likes the vehicle for that same problem except in this case you can't lie down and put up divide or you're just staring at them you know. Some people are inclined and from what they wrote on the press release. It sounds like it's an articulated recline so like the Pan sides forward rather than the seat going back. He lose knee room during their Klein. Which people wouldn't like it? There's a lot of problems with it but it does sort of solve some solution Some provide some solutions. That was terrible senator There's a lot of problems with it but it also offers solutions. Yeah good editor. I would just fix that. And so you know it's interesting to me. I think it's a good conversation point but I don't think it'll overfly so I don't know

Turkey's Erdogan won't meet with Pence and Pompeo

"On Tuesday the White House announced the vice president Mike hands and secretary of state Mike Pompeii are traveling to Turkey as part of a delegation to negotiate a ceasefire and settlement in northern Syria his pants discussing a phone call between president Donald Trump and Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan president trump communicated to him very clearly and that the United States of America wants Turkey to stop the invasion implement an immediate ceasefire and to begin to negotiate a with Kurdish forces in Syria to bring an end to the violence but air to one told reporters yesterday that he is rejecting calls for a ceasefire while remaining open to negotiations with US officials this rapidly changing situation began when president trump announced a withdrawal of American forces from northern Syria just last week it was a decision that was widely condemned by some of his strongest supporters since then Turkish forces and Russian forces have advanced into northern Syria and Kurdish forces are under siege joining me now for an update on what's happening our Washington post reporter Dan Lamont who covers the military an owner on to Bloomberg Turkey bureau chief thank you both for joining me thanks yes owner before we get into the specifics of what's happening let's pull back for a second and try to understand the geo politics at play among others Russia is widely seen as benefiting from the current events in the region how cell I think the last ten days or so boosted Russia's role the said as the main power broker in Syria in general and the north of the country more than it was ever the case that's mainly due to a few reasons led by American decision to throw the subways troops from the area with church match is operating in addition and which was kind of an unexpected decision by the Americans we saw that US that coalition forces already also withdrew from the key border town of mine beach in northern Syria it's not exactly on the Syrian Turkish border but this is not very far away from it and with that decision was so that the Syrian regime forces backed by the Russians to cover mine beach which was at the heart of the long standing role between Turkey and the US bottom line I think is the fact that in all these areas with Turkey remain party at this active in the area the last eight years now is finding that Russia is reading the parts that should deal with in order to seek a solution to its own problems rather than the US in the region now finds it probably a lot more practical just to deal with the Russians instead of read the warning about what the American forces that sis are up to in the areas where it has its eyes so who else has benefited from the situation would you say what along with Russia their main partners in the Syrian war which is the central government in Damascus I think I'd be great Spanish fisheries when we come to Turkey we see that it's a lot more complicated situation where one can talk about maybe some bottles battlefields advances and and and possibly even a victory eventually but it's hard to see how exactly Turkey's president could leverage that battlefield advance in order to emerge victorious leader at home for his domestic audience it's all very tricky and food at the moment I think the US government has shown its capability to read me hurt Turkey's economy and Turkey's government if it really wants to intense too and that could radically change that sort of the that the power balance with a power dynamic between Turkey and the U. S. at in the context of what's happening in Syria and and in terms of adult standing at home Dan to many observers the US is seen as having lost ground strategically why is that I mean objectively diss that a disintegration of American foreign policy out in Syria over the last five years on the Syrian democratic forces were the greatest part on on the ground are in the fight against the Islamic state I rapidly leaving northeastern Syria over the last couple days we have last our greatest partner in that fight on their own and forced to find help elsewhere watched very awkward images in the last couple days of things such as the Americans pulling out of man **** most recently on Tuesday we saw images of Russian forces moving into the basis of the basin managed in particular the Americans that just last a seemingly got their weapons and their vehicles out of but they left behind virtually everything else more less a move in ready base and said tell me Dan to what extent our notions of an Islamic state revival credible or is it premature I think it's a very credible concern there are numerous reports of ISIS fighters getting loose in the chaos most mostly over the weekend but it's a continuing concern as Turkey continues to how to push its boundaries there and with that you have both the Russians and the Syrian regime involved and just a very chaotic situation in general never mind his own right up until the announcement about the US troop withdrawal how was this region of Syria being governed who exactly was in charge of this region has been under the influence and and control of STF for quite sometime now S. yes that's what's your democratic force an important element insincere democratic forces is white P. G. which is eight armed Kurdish group and which is at the heart of the problem between Turkey and US because while the US has been set it's a transactional temporary at relationship with YPG knowing the luggage so to speak that comes with white peachy enters problems with it under has been adamant that it's unacceptable given a temporary transaction great ship to exist between Turkey at between the US and white peachy and that's because Turkey sees the YPG as merely the Syrian offshoot of the PKK that's a separate disorganization the truck has been fighting guest for decades in a bloody war and said organization that's because a today at terrorist group not only by Turkey but by the US and European Union as well this is the heart of the disagreement between Turkey and the US in northern Syria so present to one commented on the upcoming visit from the American delegation what exactly did you tell reporters present aired on today told reporters does reporter is that he's going to meet both plants and pump but more importantly what he said was this we are going to create this buffer zone to sectors of the security so no matter what but if you're really trying to look for a way out for a solution here's our proposal I'm calling on the Kurdish militants were actually said I'm committed terrorists to leave everything they have the ammunition the materials the guns behind and just leave what we call the safe zone northeast in Syria and then this new job creation automatically and naturally will come to an end so we think that this was at a loss way off showing a graceful way to end this chaos it's graceful in the sense that it would allow the Turkish president to go back to its domestic audiences say see I got what I wanted on the battlefield and politically and this is how I deliver my promises without really having to deal with an embarrassing me the tree or political circus show force with any of the players in Syria now whether or not that's something that the US can live with we don't know yet when pensive Pompeia are nonsense we're going to find out but we now know for sure that this is going to be the starting point for the church delegation and add on as they sit down with what vice president pence and a signature of state my computer so Dan in anticipation of that how exactly our national security advisers in the trump administration responding to these latest developments we've seen a situation where because the president chose to hold troops initially just away from the border and then over the weekend completely out of northeastern Syria where they don't have a huge gold at the table are they have a vote are they can pressure Turkey I they can press for sanctions that and they can price for allies to weigh in they don't have the usual influence that American foreign policy presence would have out so they're trying to keep the president on a on a path that's inserting some sort of pressure here but the the the the options they have are much more limited that they would have been dot two weeks ago now one senior administration officials said we're describe this is total chaos we seen really a you know back and forth in terms of policy as is being dictated by the trump administration a lot of backlash from some of his most ardent supporters to what extent are they responding to this backlash now I I think it's something that they're gonna have to eat and they're gonna have to explain for quite some time there was a pretty broad discussion over how the United States should get out of Syria there have been discussions for some time basically that the STF would at some point need to reach an agreement or deal of some kind with the Syrian government and the United States with access robin becomes the way in which this has happened over the last couple days you basically compressed what would have been months of discussions into it really just a you know a few days and as a result of that you've seen the chaos you seem to violence and you've seen the US military you know basically just quietly quietly exiting I stayed right while all of these other players are you are involved in great bloodshed what about current members of the US military how are they responding to all of this it hasn't been universal but I have heard a great deal of chagrin about this I have a great deal of disappointment about this many I see this as a betrayal of a great partner WestJet are no fewer than ten or eleven thousand lives in the battle against the Islamic state they were you know on the battlefield together they weren't firefights together and to kind of just rapidly leave them alone are on their own with the Turkish offensive coming is something that they never thought they would see how is this escalating conflict affected the civilian population in northern Syria from what we know so far one of the great concerns is that it's not just the Turkish military involved there's a number of basically in militants of sorts fighters that are aligned with Turkey but but there they don't play by the same rules all right so you've seen images of civilians being basically executed you've seen images of war crimes happening right in front

What Airline Passengers Need to Know After the Boeing 737 Max 8 Crash

"Aviation accidents are almost always complicated, and it can take months or usually longer to figure out what actually happened. And why? So while we wait for the specifics of Ethiopian flight three oh to to become more clear. There are some very real concerns being raised by would be travelers and airlines about the aircraft involve as you know, it's the newest Boeing plane the seven thirty-seven max eight the same model that crashed in Indonesia late last year, south west an American or among the US carriers that fly at marketplace marrow. Sagarra looks at what this crash might mean for them when Stephanie Johnny heard about the thean airlines crash. She thought about her daughter Juliet who's about to fly to Thailand, I sent her Texas morning thing. Juliette? If you're a need to find out what kind of plane, you're flying to Beijing. And then Thailand because if it's a seven thirty seven max. Changing your fight by Yanni is fifty three and lives in DC. She owns an active wear company and travels a lot for work. Now. One more thing to do check. What kind of a plan you're on? It's not clear yet why the airlines flight crashed on Sunday. Or if there is any problem with the Boeing seven thirty-seven, max eight and regulators like the FAA will be looking into this Daniele Quincy Chiku is an aviation professor at the university of North Dakota. We jump at this point, we hugest wheat, whatever instigate this to come up with the commend issues. B's don't sucks. The US airlines that fly the plane southwest in American say they stand behind the safety of their fleets including the seven thirty seven max eight, but travelers are getting nervous. American Airlines says it won't be waiving. It's changed fees for customers who refuse to fly on the jet southwest wouldn't disclose its policy Richard Obolov via an aviator. Analyst at the teal group says any cancellations probably won't have a huge affect on the airlines there are only three hundred fifty of these planes in the world. American Airlines has twenty four south west has thirty four. Ruin away small number. So they're not gonna lose business. I mean, just because of the relatively small number fight service by these jets Stephanie body, I need by the way was relieved to hear that her daughter will not be flying to Thailand on the Boeing seven thirty-seven max eight I'm maryelle Sagarra for marketplace. One of the reasons the crash of flight three, oh two has led to so much international concern about the max aid is that if the opium airlines isn't some small budget airline. It's big it's well respected into an international carrier with a history that goes back to the end of the second World War as marketplace.

"westjet" Discussed on KNST AM 790

"This is a story out of Britain. But he can happen anywhere any place. There is a man David Young who has been ordered to pay an airline that in this case westjet is a European airliner. I think is one of those. Cheapo creep. Oh, airliners discount lines liners, and here's what happened to him. As soon as the plane takes off, you know, where you hear you remain seated until we hit ten thousand feet, then you can use the restroom kind of thing. He immediately gets up makes a move towards the bathroom and this happened right after takeoff. So you as he makes a move and the restrooms are locked at this point. So he goes to the restroom and he tries to open it. And the crew comes over and says you can't do this. You have to go to your seat. Okay. So far, so good. He goes to a seat and literally just a few seconds afterward. Go cut goes up again stands up, and then goes back to the laboratories and tries to manhandle his way in there. And it's locked. So at this point the white crew comes up and says, you know, you gotta sit down he becomes aggressive to flight attendants and another passenger who is trying to get him calm down. And it was that altercation was so extraordinarily. That the captain had to turn around and fly back and the captain needed to dump about twenty thousand pounds of fuel because they're not going to land with a full fuel tanks because the way it works is the airliners put on x number of fuel to be safe. But they don't land with full tanks. So he dumps the fuel and everybody land safely, of course, they arrest him. And so they tag him for the cost of the fuel and the judge agrees. The judge says you have to pay now this is the criminal trial where the judge ordered him to pay twenty thousand dollars in restitution actually, twenty one thousand dollars in restitution to the airline. And and the judge says if you want any more money. You're going to have to go to court for that civil court if he only has to pay twenty one thousand dollars, that's a bargain. Because I just needs through that one because it's not just the cost of fuel. What do you think it cost the maintenance is amortized over the maintenance schedule of an airplane? You can only fly so many hours before they have to go back in and be maintained. And have to be checked out. The engines only have so many hours on them. And so there's a lot more money involved. And was there overtime what happened with the crew? Did they have to get another crew because you have a crew that's only able to fly X number of hours and they're coming back. And so anyway. That that makes sense to me. I wish this would happen more and more where people get tagged for that interference. With a flight crew. You know, you can get up to twenty five or twenty years jail for interference. From the flight crew. I think twenty five thousand dollar fine something like that. So that makes a lot of sense to me. All right. Mike. Hello, mike. Yes. How do I do a corporation in a small claims court? Really? Okay. Here's when you have a computer. Okay. You look up in the search word small claims court. Okay. And that will give you all the information. Okay. But if they're not interstates because all dealing with the eight hundred number. We don't know what they're located. That's a problem because you have to be able to locate them. Okay. In our? Jurisdiction. Who the who? Are you suing is that appliance company that is part of series? All right. So you know, what who the folks are? Eight hundred number. Okay. So now you have their name. Okay. So now, you go on the internet. Okay. And you put up their name, and you will have their address because it'll print out. So he doesn't have to be a specific person. Just now you can you can name a corporation. Okay. Thank you very much, and based on your intelligence questions what I'm going to suggest that someone else argue the case in front of the judge is I don't think you're going to be doing such a good job. Hi, welcome. Yes, bill. I've had durable. Power of attorney. And I helped directive for a friend is fifty eight years old. That suffers from schizophrenia she's been in and out of care centers. And institutions she was an she was an owner of a. Piece of property in Los Angeles. And her sister that lives in Texas sold it. How does how does she sell it? Because I if it's your friend's name on the deed, your friend has to transfer the property. Okay. Well, that's exactly what they did. They had a broker and notary. Okay. So it's okay. Okay. So they fraudulently did it. Okay. And it was okay. Fair enough. So now how much is the property. Go ahead. The property's worth about six hundred thousand because there was three units. But it's not in a great part of town. But, but the thing is is that the property was paid for and the sister wound up with all of the proceeds then of course, he did course if it's essentially was willing to forge your friend's name. Of course. So where do I go from here? I you hire a lawyer. You have to hire a lawyer not going to do this one on your own. You're going to have to say we're going to have to set aside the sale and then go into a big legal mess. One lawyer said what? Okay, I had one lawyer said that she would go ahead and handle it. But her purse her personal assistant would charge twenty five dollars an hour. Thirty five dollars an hour to go ahead and do the research now that is the part that scares me because they're going to be billing me. Well, how do I know? What you I'm gonna be able. Yeah. Well, the problem is that they are going to be billing you and you're going to have to take money out of any proceeds as your friend have any assets at all. No, okay. Then that's so you're going to have to find you're going to have to find someone who's willing to do this on a contingency basis or you get to write the checks. Okay. Thank you. So my right. And if you need a lawyer, go to handle on the law dot com. And see if lawyers are willing to do this. Now, if it's clear cut as what you say. Then there may be there's a good chance that someone will do it on contingency. That's not going to be easy to find because lawyers. There's very little upside unless they're allowed to say I'll take a percentage of what we collect. And then there can be some serious money there. This is handle on the law. Every.
