Folsom, CA asked in Civil Litigation and Municipal Law for California

Q: Is it legal for a judge to order not to park on a public street in a neighborhood where everyone does?

Next door neighbor sued and lied about me parking in front of his house among other things, had no evidence, because I do not park in front of his house, yet the judge ruled I cannot park in front of his house with out evidence and my lawyer did nothing about it. Frustrates me the injustice from the judge, the constant lying from the neighbor and his lawyer and the poor representation I had from my lawyers.

A: It is not common for a judge to order someone not to park on a public street unless there is a legal reason for doing so, such as a parking violation, a safety concern, or a restriction placed by the city. If there is no valid reason, it could be considered a violation of the individual's rights to park on a public street.

However, in your case, the judge appears to have ordered you not to park in front of your neighbor's house based on false accusations without sufficient evidence. This decision may be challenged, and it's advisable to consult with an attorney who specializes in civil litigation to assess the situation and determine the best course of action.

If the judge's order was not based on any legal grounds or evidence, you may be able to file an appeal or request that the decision be reconsidered. Alternatively, if your neighbor continues to make false accusations or harass you, you may be able to take legal action to protect your rights, such as obtaining a restraining order or filing a lawsuit for defamation.

It's essential to have adequate legal representation to protect your rights and interests. If you feel that your lawyers did not represent you adequately, you may wish to seek a second opinion or consult with a different attorney.
