William F Sulton Esq.'s answer The law is that you must successfully complete your probation. That differs from whether you were revoked. But given that you were not revoked, I have question about why your case ended up back in front of a judge. Expungement is supposed to happen automatically when the clerk of court receives paperwork from the probation office. Because you were not revoked, I wonder why clerk of court did not expunge the record. It sounds like a mistake on the clerk's part.
William F Sulton Esq.'s answer Sections 111.321 and 111.322(1) of the Wisconsin Statutes prohibit employers from denying opportunities because of an arrest or conviction record. The facts you describe violate those prohibitions.
William F Sulton Esq.'s answer You could file a lawsuit for a declaration stating that the sale is null and void. But that seems unnecessary in this circumstance. You can probably just walk away from the deal. It happens everyday.
William F Sulton Esq.'s answer It does not sound like you need a lawyer at this point in time. Many employers would refuse to allow attorney representatives in an interview about an internal matter. If you are an at will employee, that could result in termination. The best advice I can provide is to request your employment file before you are interviewed.
William F Sulton Esq.'s answer More information is needed to provide meaningful advice. You cannot be arrested for (or charged with) possession of prescription medication without having a valid prescription absent probable cause. So unless you had a large number of pills or confessed, it would ordinarily be difficult to get to probable cause.
It sounds like you were stopped for the purpose of investigating cocaine possession. Without knowing what the tip precisely said, it is difficult to evaluate whether the police...
William F Sulton Esq.'s answer Your question is unclear. If you have an order awarding the house to you, you do not need the ex to sign. You can simply extinguish the ex’s interest and have another deed recorded on the property.
William F Sulton Esq.'s answer It does not sound legal. One would need to review the bylaws and other relevant documents to provide meaningful advice. And it sounds like the review should happen sooner rather than later.
William F Sulton Esq.'s answer The buyer may sue for specific performance. Alternatively, the buyer may sue for the earnest money and damages. As long as the realtor disclosed the conflict of interest, the relationship is probably not illegal. I suggest you speak with a lawyer.
William F Sulton Esq.'s answer You should file a petition for the return of the phone under Section 968.20 of the Wisconsin Statutes. It is unclear whether there is a violation of the Fourth Amendment. You were told that you were not under arrest and voluntarily handed the phone over. You should have said no.
William F Sulton Esq.'s answer The problem with lawsuits like this is that they are expensive. You may have insurance that will provide you with a defense. I suggest you contact the insurance company you had at the time.
William F Sulton Esq.'s answer More information is needed to evaluate the facts in your inquiry. Appraisals are subjective. So it is unsurprising there are different opinions about the value of the home. This is not fraud (misrepresentation is a synonym). It may be negligence. More information is needed to see how negligent the opinion is.
William F Sulton Esq.'s answer You are responsible for the amendment because you agreed to it by signing. It sounds like your agent gave you bad advice. You should consider making a claim with your agent's insurer if you are ultimately on the hook for the $16,000.
