Police have the right to pull you over, if they get information from Dispatch or their CAD system, telling them that you are suspended or not licensed or if they see (or say they see) you commit a traffic infraction. I file Motions to Suppress, whenever I see a report and the cop SAYS he saw a...Read more »
Notice of Plea Agreement. If a plea agreement is reached by the parties, the court must, on the record, require the disclosure of the agreement in open court or, on a showing of good cause, in camera, at the time the plea is offered. If the...Read more »
In order for a policeman to pull you out of traffic, the cop must have a valid, articulable suspicion that you are, have been, or are about to commit a crime, even a traffic offense. So, if we judge the cop's actions in pulling you over, we must look at the information he/she had about you,...Read more »
We spent several thousand dollars for equipment, gas, motel reservations, food, etc. over the summer to see these kids sit on the bench on an Allstar team that required tryouts. The coach also told fans where they could or couldn't sit and stand to watch the games. Because I had a run in with... Read more »
A "case" for what? Not playing your grandson? Nope. The coach has "discretion" to play anyone he wants. The "remedy" you have is social media and hope the "powers that be" don't hire him next season. Sorry there's not more you can do. It sucks, I know.
He’s telling hundreds of people and it’s causing immense amounts of chaos. I’ve tried speaking to him and his friends about just Atleast taking the posts down. He refuses. I’ve also reported his accounts. Is there anything I can do?
There are recognized, "bad stuff" you can tell about another person, and have hell to pay for doing so; disparaging a female's "chaste character" is actionable (our society still imputes chastity to females) as liable, broadly defined as both spoken "slander," or...Read more »
I live in Nampa, Idaho and I know that some nonalcoholic drinks are treated the same as alcoholic drinks, so if someone is not able to prove they're 21 and older then they'll be refused of service. So my main question is, is it illegal for a young adult below the legal drinking age to... Read more »
Of course. If you substitute the words "non-alcoholic beverages" for "water," the answer would make more sense. Idaho law prohibits those under twenty-one (21) from consuming alcohol. So, what I think you might be talking about is if you were stopped by police or they...Read more »
As to your ex’s belongings. What I recommend is that you send him a letter, while he’s in jail, telling him that he has 30 days to have someone (preferably family) pick up his belongings and that if no one comes within 30 days, you will dispose of his things as you see fit.
He won't get help and I fear for my life. Can we file something with his mental and start divorce? He wants to hurt me after 55 years of caring for him and it has come to this. I am truly scared of him. What are my rights?
Idaho Code allows a Petitioner to seek out a Civil Protection Order. All you need to do is go into the Clerk's Office and ask for Civil Protection papers, and the Clerk will give them to you. They might even have a "Court Assistance Office" to help you fill out the papers. Once...Read more »

My mom's ex is abusive towards her and my sisters. She "left him" but he still comes over. She's been charging my sisters rent. They are over 18. Do they then have a say in whether or not he's allowed at the house if the are paying rent? They feel unsafe with him around but... Read more »
My sister hit my husband in eye with a box so he asked for an apology she rolled her eyes at him so he took the box and lightly tapped her on the head. Now she went to hospital claims she has a concussion and is overly dramatizing the whole thing. She is playing victim and the officer asked our... Read more »
When family fights happen, the responding officer has to be a "fact finder" in the field. His agency might have a regulation he has to follow, to "write a report on every domestic call." That may be why he told you that he is going to "write a report." His...Read more »
How can i tell if my realtor/brokerage i was using is going after me? I have signed termination papers, a few months ago. And now they are bringing stuff up into my personal life as if they are coming after me.
Okay, correct me if my recitation of facts is incorrect: you worked for a realtor? You quit, a few months ago? They are "coming after you," for something? And, they are using facts from your personal life to "come after you?" If these facts are correct, then this is my...Read more »

First of all, if you would use a few commas, and periods, in your question, if would be much easier to decipher what you're asking. However, let me see if I can restate what your question is: you were pulled over, while driving your father's vehicle? Officer asks your permission to...Read more »
This is a question for the jury - what "permission" was reasonable to believe this generous person gave you. If the "giver" is believed, then the jury will probably convict you of theft. If you are believed, and the jury believes that the giver actually gave you permission to...Read more »

You can always sell your home, to anyone you want to sell to. . . as long as the fact that your shop is not within the CC&R guidelines, or city "set back, boundary" restrictions. This would be a BAD fact to omit if you are selling your home. Because, whether you have the City coming...Read more »
If a real estate deal falls through, can the realtors you have say things to people about you? I had a real estate deal fall through and the realtor is saying horrible things about me now to a big social network we are all part of.
While this is not per se illegal, it is unwise. By disclosing information on social media, the RE officer can "defame" you; that is, if the RE agent discloses her "opinion" of you, that's not objectionable, except to you personally. Every human being is judged, based on...Read more »

Employers under the Americans with Disabilities law are required to provide "reasonable accommodations," not ALL accommodation, you request. This is a very typical problem in companies. They hire an employee who tells them of a disability, and they hire the person anyway. However,...Read more »
