Ronald J. Eisenberg's answer It's too bad that the officer didn't do a thorough job, but I'm not sure what you want to do about it. If the officer had cited the other driver for lack of financial responsibility, the other driver still wouldn't have insurance. You could sue the other driver if you believe a judgment would be collectible.
Ronald J. Eisenberg's answer First, I'm sorry to hear that about your puppy's fate. As to your legal situation, I don't know what you mean by stating that the driver is "trying" to sue you. Either a case has been filed (if so, you must defend it) or there has been no lawsuit. Check Casenet. If you've been sued, you could file a counterclaim. If you haven't been sued, you could file in small claims court but expect to catch a counterclaim for at least $3800. You can represent yourself in small claims court or you may...
Ronald J. Eisenberg's answer As you know, there's no easy answer to your situation. You haven't asked a specific question, however. Casenet is supposed to accurately reflect the names of the parties as they are identified when the case is filed. I'm not sure what you specifically want done, and by whom. I don't blame you, however, for being upset.
Ronald J. Eisenberg's answer I believe your claim would be a tort claim for negligence or trespass rather than a claim under a statute. Small claims court is designed for people to represent themselves. You would file your petition, seek the damages you believe you deserve, and at trial you'd have the burden to prove up your damages.
Q3. Are emotional support, therapy, comfort, or companion animals considered service animals under the ADA?
A. No. These terms are used to describe animals that provide comfort just by being with a person. Because they have not been trained to perform a specific job or task, they do not qualify as service animals under the ADA. However, some State or local governments have laws that...
Ronald J. Eisenberg's answer You didn’t ask a question but I’m assuming you want to know whether to hire an attorney. If so, it’s up to you. If you could find an attorney to represent you on a contingency basis, that would be great. If you have to pay an attorney $250+ per hour, and there’s no guarantee of the result, probably not. Best regards.
Ronald J. Eisenberg's answer Absent some right to have the contract renewed, I see nothing legally improper with your employer deciding not to renew. I understand that this is terrible news for you. If you have a written employment contract I think it would be worth hiring an attorney to review it. There may be a provision in it that helps you.
If your employer is the one choosing not to keep you employed, I don’t understand why it believes YOU should resign.
Ronald J. Eisenberg's answer A hotel may not discriminate against you on account of race, religion, national origin, etc., but may discriminate against you on account of merely not liking you or mistakenly believing you are selling drugs.
Ronald J. Eisenberg's answer It depends. If you are wishing to file a rent-and-possession suit and rent is not due, then you'll lose. Have an attorney review your lease and provide specific advice if it makes financial sense for you to do so.
Ronald J. Eisenberg's answer You could hire a lawyer to contact your sister, threaten to sue if necessary, and seek to get you access. It will cost you money to hire an attorney but if you really have $40k worth of property there, you'll do so.
Ronald J. Eisenberg's answer Your post is unanswerable. Whether criminal justice is objective or subjective would necessitate a more specific question. Some determinations are subjective (whether to find a witness's testimony to be credible), whereas other determination are objective.
