The girls that were caught in turn claim that my daughter was doing the same thing and that she threw out a vape pen in the... Read more »
It is incorrect to say that "there is absolutely no proof"; another student's word IS proof (or evidence). As you indicate, "It is their word against hers". So, it depends on who they believe. If the school's rules and regulations allow suspension or expulsion for...Read more »

Florida doesn't have income tax. So, the question remaining is whether you still have to pay income tax to North Carolina. Probably not, but to be sure you should ask this question in Justia > Ask a Lawyer > North Carolina > Tax Law.

I believe the term you're looking for is "nulo contendre". It is "law Latin", meaning "no contest"; essentially the same as a plea of guilty. But if the charges were dropped, it doesn't make sense that you would have entered such a plea.
I'm in the process of buying a land plot. And the Seller is requesting that I sign a Warranty Deed to him in the event of a default.

Now they are serving us with a non-renewal. We own our home but rent the lot. We feel... Read more »
