Under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, people with disabilities (including pregnancy and related side effects) are permitted to request reasonable accommodations to enable them to perform their jobs while honoring their restrictions. However, the accommodation must be reasonable, and...Read more »
I was involved in an armed gas station robbery in 2019. DA called me Feb. of this year and admitted they were sending everything to the wrong person with my same name despite having my police report and information. They said the lead investigator would call me in March. Never did. I finally called... Read more »
If you have not been personally served with a subpoena you have no legal obligation to appear. However, I assume you are important witness since, as you say, you were "involved in an armed gas station robbery." Unless you were a participant, you might want to give some thought to...Read more »
It depends on their roles. It could be a conflict of interest, or it could be nothing. In the hypothetical, if the responsibilities of one position required minimizing town expenditures, and the responsibilities of the other position involved justifying new furniture for a school, one could say the...Read more »
Assuming the library owns its building they can decide who to admit. You can contact the Colorado Civil Liberties Union but I don't see that they couldn't, especially if you appeared to violate their rules for conduct or use of materials.
Marriage is generally the easiest and fastest way to get a green card. Others get green cards through employment, investment, asylum, etc. He should meet with an immigration attorney to go over his alternatives.
If it is a federal tax, the court is either Tax Court (yes there really is a Tax Court) or a local Federal District Court (in Denver). If it is a state tax, the court is a Colorado District Court (likely in Denver). Potentially a federal court can review certain state taxes if this is a...Read more »
I received a letter today from the City of Aurora (Colorado) stating contempt of court proceedings will be started against me if I do not call the Jury's Commissioner's office within 10 days, which I'll be sure to do. But I never received a summons. Can I really be held in contempt... Read more »
You can claim that you were not provided notice, but this won't excuse the appearance obligation. You can be held in contempt for non-appearance. This type of proceeding is relatively rare, and usually if you show up for jury duty (without incident) nothing happens. In the rare cases where...Read more »
Yes, you can wait until you become a Colorado resident to change your name. Where and when you choose to change your name is a personal choice (beyond applicable state requirements related to updating of records).
You can challenge both orders. It is usually unwise to challenge a temporary order because they are of such a short duration (and also not usually cost-effective for the legal fees). Permanent orders can also be challenged by: (1) requesting a rehearing (usually within 21 days of the order), (2)...Read more »
I realize timing is everything. I know I retired during a bad time for the Federal govt & the veterans retirement system, that is, between 2008 & 2015, when there was not a Streamlined, one-stop process for honorable & medically retired personnel.
Yikes! Due to the sums involved, it is highly recommended that you contact an attorney that specializes in military law and/or military disability claims. Since the VA and DoD are not known for their transparency or efficiency, I suspect that something can be done legally.
I understand that a P.O. can revocate a probationer at any time during probation right down to the last day. However waiting to violate the probationer on the 720th day of a 730 day sentence when they had been in violation from the very start. The only thing probationer did consistently was keep...

I cannot comment on the correctness of the PO's actions. One factor is that the parole system is horribly overloaded--this leads to delays. It is possible that the monthly appearances and heavy caseload caused the PO to not review whether all the terms of the parole were complied with. While...Read more »
The judge did not accept our request and allowed the testimonies to be accepted. There were many objections that we had during the trial and our lawyer was vocal about them during the trial but the judge seemed to be very biased and accept whatever the District Attorney requested. We lost trial... Read more »
Since I was not there and I do not know your case, I cannot comment on all the particularities of your case. I can, however, provide general information. A suppression hearing (often attached to a motion in limine) is nothing more than a request (usually by the defendant) to exclude evidence from...Read more »
I had given birth to my child on the 16th at home didn't have to come in to the hospital but did anyways and wanted to sign my child out against medical advice and come to find out the state has taken custody of my child and I need to know what I need to do to get her back into my custody...

From the sounds of it DHS is involved. At this point, there is nothing that you can due to stop the process. The social worker is likely reviewing your child's case for (1) D&N (dependency and neglect) and/or (2) criminal child abuse (via physical harm or drug addiction of the baby)....Read more »
I was notified of separation from active duty in the US Army as result of the 2014 Officer Separation Board (OSB) for Majors. The reason listed on my DD-214 states AR 600-8-24, Chapter 5. However, there is nothing in that chapter whatsoever that details separation for officers in good standing.... Read more »
You question is reasonable and very clear (a rarity). Unfortunately, I am not aware of any lawyers at Justia that have extensive knowledge of military law (98% of all law schools don't offer classes on military law). You can try Avvo (again, lawyers familiar with military law a few and far...Read more »
I'm 18 y.o. and trying to obtain a green card. I have lived in the US since I was 10 and my mother recently married a US citizen so both she and my sister have green cards, but because I don't have a good relationship with my family my mother refused to help me with the process.... Read more »
