I called today as I still have not received any payment confirmation, court documentation, such as satisfaction of judgement, etc. and was trying to figure out why. The day payment was made I was told by this company my wire transfer was successful and applied to account.
The Police quickly caught a burglar that tried to break into my apartment. The Officer said that burglar was homeless and likely had schizophrenia. He wouldn’t arrest, didn’t want to fill out a Police report and only wanted to take him across town and drop him off.
You can try to contact a Magistrate yourself by going through the General Sessions Court Clerk, but you probably do not have sufficient information. You can also complain to the Knox County District Attorney General, who might arrange for you and the LEO to swear out a Warrant. Hopefully you at...Read more »
55.1-1204 Section C says Mr Sternberg is incorrect in his answer and he also says perjury and discrimination against protected classes is "irrelevant". Either he didn't read it all or he doesn't care about the law. Let's try again, shall we?
Most of the facts in your question are irrelevant. A contract for land must be in writing or it is void. Depending on where you are, a writing can sometimes be lots of things short of a Purchase and Sale Agreement on the local Board of Realtors form. I think there is one DC case in which a check...Read more »
The guy I’m trying to get a permanent restraining order against called in today and was excused because he was “sick”. They rescheduled it. I’m just worried he’s going to keep calling in to avoid the hearing
It would likely depend on whether he's actually sick [or has tested positive for, e.g., covid]. As you're aware, the courts are rightfully cautious during these times. Your temporary orders, if granted, should remain in place, provided you're requesting they be extended. Speak with a...Read more »
A jail has a due process requirement to provide medications that are necessary. To failure to do so is also a violation of the cruel and unusual punishment prohibition in the United States Constitution. I would petition for review.
I stayed at this Motel 6 before on the homeless program and we were allow to have our pet.But they have made new rules and then Motel 6 has their rules.2 set of different rules for one Motel 6.Iam just wondering if this is legal .
Technically speaking, no, they do not. However, if the police intend to question you--and use those statements against you--they must read you your "Miranda" rights, which includes admonishing you of your right to remain silent and that anything you say can, and will, be used against you...Read more »
I've been allowed to sit in the library, but they have refused to provide any access to their service unless I can provide an exemption card and I'm trying to find a way to relay to them that enforcing proof of exemption is equivalent to enforcement of proof of disability and unequal... Read more »
Must staff make an effort to guide each student to safety? What if a false alarm is the source of the fire emergency? May the teacher or parapro leave a disabled student in a precarious position during a false alarm?
A MIchigan attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. There probably is case law, but maybe not on the level of specificity described in your post. You might find a greater level of detail in standard operating procedures for the district or the school - manuals for...Read more »
Your question straddles a number of categories. I can only speak for the civil part; a criminal defense attorney could address criminal aspects. In my experience, it is the judge who makes decisions on dismissals. Your question includes the word "only." I can only say that I haven't...Read more »

In this scenario, I'm guessing the medical people will have a different story - but if you can prove this happened, I believe the medical people would be liable both civilly and criminally for false imprisonment and battery (at least), and potentially liable civilly for malpractice. Request...Read more »
It would depend on what happened after the officer saw the medication and the syringe. If you are saying that the officer used that observation to extend the traffic stop for the tail light to investigate into drug possession--there may be a Forth Amendment issue here. The USSC has said there are...Read more »
I explained to public defender but she was charged and given probation and fine. She is mentally disabled so she can’t pay. What can I do? I’m a single mom with a 15 year old daughter as well. I don’t have $3000 laying around.
The situation involves illegal sedation of a disabled person in a group home with evidence, and neglect/abuse with evidence. The group home agency has failed to correct the situation or address the situation appropriately on so many levels it's mind-blowing. We also want to sue for... Read more »

In and of itself, I don't see there being a problem with a juror being an old classmate of the judge. The primary consideration for a juror to be seated is whether or not he/she is able to be fair and impartial under the present circumstances. If the juror was an old classmate of the...Read more »
If no charge was made by the LEO's, and no Forfeiture Warrant was issued, then it is an unlawful taking. But did Dad own the vehicle? I suspect more occurred here than what facts are stated. Driving on Revoked TNDL may be a charge in the making, which can take 1 year to initiate. The owner...Read more »
If they told you to call the following day, were they telling you to call about release of the vehicle from impound? If so, that will of course require payment of towing, storage, etc. What did they say when you called? Is the vehicle going to be subject to civil asset forfeiture? Is it evidence?...Read more »

I filed a petition, verification, and memo of points and authorities. They responded and I filed a response as well. How do I get a court date now? The court is telling me I need to file something else but will not tell me what. This is for a writ of mandate challenging a city's actions during... Read more »
Without knowing a lot more information, it would be very difficult for me to answer your question.
My experience is that when the court tells you to file an additional document, they usually tell you exactly what they want. So if you received some kind of notice from the court, I urge you...Read more »
I am not sure if I understand your question. I understand it to mean that people with hazmat suits recommended closing all or part of a building and management did not follow the recommendation. I am not aware of any laws that require obedience to people wearing hazmat suits. However, if someone...Read more »
