Filing false police report, pain n suffering like whole unnecessary arrest, imprisonment and court fees? Kicked out of own house after she already moved out due to can't return to scene she claimed. Forced to abandon dogs until trial is done.
Retribution means punishing for revenge. I assume that's not what you mean; that you instead mean to ask what legal action you can take to seek monetary compensation for your loss of liberty, economic losses, and emotional distress. You certainly may sue your accuser (your ex) for malicious...Read more »
Just days before the primaries, governor DeSantis made sure not to clarify that these voters were felons who thought their rights were restored. I cannot see how this is NOT being considered voter intimidation. If you think that what this man has done was legal, please explain. I appreciate your... Read more »
I looked online for what you are referencing, and I see a story regarding DeSantis announcing that the Fla. Dept. of Law Enforcement arrested 20 people who allegedly voted illegally because their voting rights were not restored, even though they were allowed to register. (See, for example,...Read more »
I filed a civil suit and during the trial after everyone was sworn in the defendant not only admitted to a federal crime but provided proof that he had possession of the counterfeit document, knowing it was a counterfeit document and submitted a photo copy of that document as evidence....

Florida case law has made it very clear that when a defendant simply throws potential evidence, such as a bag of drugs, out of the car window during a police stop, the defendant cannot be prosecuted for tampering with evidence.
If I were you, I'd ask what they would like to speak to you about. Maybe you were listed as a witness or potential witness to something, even if you know nothing about whatever they're looking into. But another scenario is that, for some reason, you are a crime suspect, such as where...Read more »

I live in Florida and the state law identifies what common areas are, but the HOA bylaws say the board has broad discretion with respect to what common areas are and the HOA has used this broad discretion to bill only certain homeowners for cost to maintain common area's deeded to the hoa....

The common areas are designated by the plat of the community and the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions. The board has discretion on how to spend HOA funds to maintain common areas. I am not sure what you mean by the last part of your statement "have used the bill only...Read more »
Should Rep. Pelosi and Sen. Charles Schumer agreed to having the National Guard called in when suggested in order protect against domestic violence? Does this Article apply to D.C. as well as states? Thank you.
If a Decedent died intestate and was never married, had no kids, no surviving parents or grandparents and no surviving aunts/uncles, or issue thereof, is there any possible scenario that would allow for the next of kin collateral heirs (being descendants of great-grandparents, ie. second cousins)... Read more »
Yes, it is possible. The State rarely gets assets to an estate. One thing that would be done in a probate with only distant and remote heirs would be the affidavit of heirs. If an intestate decedent has no living spouse, children, parents, or siblings, intestacy laws provide mechanisms to determine...Read more »
That's an Interesting question; I never heard of remote neural monitoring, so I just googled the phrase, "remote neural monitoring court cases". That turns up a number of court decisions which uniformly reject all such claims. The Courts dismiss such claims based on reasons such...Read more »

So, I know I'm in the wrong too, but I need to see the best way to go about this. I have outside cats and just move where the landlord doesn't want animals, but they are outside cats. For my own reasons, I didn't mention it and just need a week or so for them to get use to their new... Read more »
Sorry, but you probably violated your lease (which we cannot review here online), requested service and now are upset the landlord found out you have cats in his house. It is logical to check each AC vent when there is a complaint the AC is not working properly. A landlord in Florida has the...Read more »
