I'm really hoping the Attorney I talk to can get the whole case dropped. I read the date wrong on his filing. He filed on June 22, not the 12 like originally thought. I opened my AG case on the 18! The state prefers to keep a case with the AG.
Just a thought...did you tell him you were filing? In California, there is a question on the paperwork where you have to answer Y/N if you are aware of any other pending open cases. If you notified him and he filed after you, make sure you let your attorney know.
Best of Luck...I hope all goes well.
