Anyone can claim anything. If you have been charged you want to discuss the matter with an attorney who handles criminal cases in the county where the charges have been brought. Otherwise it's not clear what the issue is.

If the question is about vaccines, no one is being "made to" take it. However, like any vaccination, travel and other activities may be restricted to those who have been vaccinated.

If you couldn't anticipate the issue you would be covered by the sudden emergency doctrine as you weren't careless. So I don't see it. Normally the truck's insurance would cover it.

Peter N. Munsing answered on Aug 4, 2021

Not usually. Hospitals don't do warrant checks. They will ask for ID , possibly proof of vaccination. I would suggest he get an attorney to help straighten things out or at least avoid getting him arrested if he is stopped for some reason.

you need to find an attorney. As you may have a possible civil case, contact the ACLU, ask to talk to someone who handles "police misconduct" cases, ask them for names of their "cooperating attorneys." Speak to one or more of those.

Peter N. Munsing answered on Aug 4, 2021

I suggest you delete your case reference.

The individuals should both use an attorney, but if for some reason that is not possible, Federal Courts allow pro se appearances. You may, if applicable, want to fill out the forms to proceed in forma pauperis, which waives most fees.

1 Answer | Asked in Personal Injury for Iowa on
Q: If someone says they want to see you hang your self is that illegal
Peter N. Munsing
Peter N. Munsing answered on Aug 3, 2021

Generally no--it's more like a curse "I wish you to get Covid"

In some circumstances it could be actionable but that would take money because no lawyer would take the case. Spend the money on getting counseling on any fallout, and how to avoid or deal with creeps like the person who said that.

Q: I got pulled over for doing 84 in a 55 he gave me a break and fined me for failure to obey road signs so i wouldn’t get

points and told me if i fight it, the judge will most likely take it off for me but in a box on the citation saying confidential information it says my speed, will the judge be able to see that?

Peter N. Munsing
Peter N. Munsing answered on Aug 3, 2021

Frankly, if there are no points you are better off paying it. Judges tend not to favor those who already got a break, and if you were doing almost 30 over or even 20 over they will consider it a monster break.

I'm not sure how you would fight it without the judge knowing that it was...

1 Answer | Asked in Family Law, Civil Litigation and Juvenile Law for Pennsylvania on
Q: How can I be granted emancipation as a pregnant minor under 18?

If I am pregnant and just under the age 16 can a marriage license be granted by a judge if me and my partner are financially stable, have transportation, and a house?

Peter N. Munsing
Peter N. Munsing answered on Aug 3, 2021

Depends on the age of the partner. A judge may grant a marriage license but it has to be shown to be in your best interests and the parents need to consent.
