This is an interesting question, but probably not one where you will find a definitive answer. In particular, if the tree is within the airspace and poses a danger, property ownership of the tree may not be the sole determining factor for who is responsible for it. Any answer would probably come... Read more »

Anyone is allowed in a courtroom. It is open to the public, with certain very limited exceptions. I'm not sure I understand your question.

Husband is intoxicated and unsafe with children but refuses to leave home. What do I do? I am afraid he will get partial custody if i take it to court and I'm terrified of my kids being in his care while under the influence
answered on May 28, 2019
That would certainly be a factor in a custody (parenting) determination. However, courts tend to want both parents involved in the children's lives. Without documented abuse, it is difficult to fully terminate parental rights. If the alcoholism is well documented (arrests for DUI, etc.), you... Read more »
Can I sue them?
answered on Apr 20, 2018
The short answer is: anyone can sue anyone for anything. The longer answer: you would need to show that your injury is a result of negligence in order to prevail. You should speak with an attorney. Most attorneys would only be willing to take on your case on a contingency fee basis if the... Read more »

Yes. You should certainly talk to an attorney. This is a possible case of medical malpractice, though of course a lot more investigation is necessary.

Even if everything you state above is true, you still need to prove it in court. If it's a significant amount of money, it may be worth hiring an attorney.

The medical doctor may wish to check with a licensing board to see if it would violate any professional or ethical rules.

Call an experienced malpractice lawyer if you think you may have a claim. Abramson, Brown & Dugan in Manchester have a reputation as the best in the state for medical malpractice. http://www.arbd.com/

He doesn't HAVE to pay anything until a Court orders him to. If the A/C is really that old, it's probably not worth much and I find it unlikely that someone would file a lawsuit (and pay a filing fee) for such a small amount. Even if they did file a lawsuit, they'd need to prove... Read more »
