It was 1951 after leaving Panama. The Captain wrote a letter questioning his mental health to N.Y. before notifying the family of his disappearance. Would I have a case against U.S.S. Luckenbach steamship company?
I'm sorry for the loss of your grandfather at sea. If there are any remedies available under South Carolina law, a local attorney would need to advise on those. But your question remains open for two weeks and you also posted under Admiralty/Maritime. Under U.S. maritime law, the Death on the...Read more »

As soon as they got off the bus went through work exchange, the gates close, the bus drives away they get attacked by the whole prison full of Southerns. I sent... Read more »
What kind of document? Where is it from? What language is it in?
You can usually record a document that qualifies for recordation with the county clerk, in your instance the county clerk for Oklahoma County, which is downtown. The clerks are prevented by law from giving you any legal...Read more »

Contact a local attorney experienced with defamation cases. They are tough cases under Missouri law because you must prove actual damages. Here is a link to the leading Missouri Supreme Court case on defamation.
Vessel was bought in the state of Florida and is staying in the state. I have heard you do not have to pay sales tax because it is a documented vessel and I have also heard that you do have to pay but only when you sell your vessel.
What you have heard, when you think about it, doesn't quite make sense. You heard that YOU don't have to pay the tax, but one has to pay when one sells it; the answer would be one or the other. Review Florida Statute 212.05 (b). I don't see any exception for a "documented...Read more »
You don't want to do that. Blackmail is generally regarded as a crime. If you mean, "how can you defend yourself against being blackmailed," you could reach out to attorneys to discuss confidentially if the matter involves something you don't wish to display on a public forum,...Read more »
An Alabama attorney could probably advise best, but your post remains open for four weeks. This is posted under Admiralty/Maritime, but it does not appear to be something that most maritime attorneys would be familiar with. In terms of reaching out to attorneys, it isn't fully clear what kind...Read more »
Admiralty/Maritime is included here, but a maritime connection is not clear, unless you mean a bond in connection with a proceeding for a ship or boat involving exoneration or limitation of liability. If this does not involve a vessel, it could be something closer to the criminal law section than...Read more »
Your post covers Admiralty/Maritime together with Adverse Possession. Unless you're talking about seizure/arrest of a ship or boat, it's possible this could be closer to a real estate matter than a maritime law matter. If this involves real property (in the form of land, not vessels), you...Read more »
To clarify, are you asking about the punishment for a member of the U.S. Navy, the U.S. Merchant Marine, or someone else? Are the insulting words coming from a service member or a private citizen? And are the words profane and/or false, or something else? Thank you.
It's difficult to answer the question based on the information in the post - Admiralty/Maritime is included as a category, and it would be good to have an attorney with insight into maritime law if the matter involves vessels or activities on navigable waters. But there are other categories as...Read more »
This is posted under Admiralty/Maritime, which often involves federal practice. Under the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, compulsory counterclaims are governed by Rule 13 of FRCP. But it isn't fully clear what the matter involves, due to the spread of categories included. I can't speak...Read more »
Plus taking the exposition of pleading guilty to the facts but not to a crime. This also requires them to PROVE their claims, produce first hand witnesses or injured parties, and require them to prove their bonding information, among other things
An Indiana attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for a week. There are a number of terms presented here, and the context is not fully clear as to whether they pertain to criminal or civil elements of a legal matter. The admiralty/maritime connection was not readily apparent from...Read more »

There is no 72 hr cancellation privilege unless your sales contract provided one. But then there is not one for anything else either (one of the most popular misconceptions by consumers) except under the door to door solicitations rule (if a salesman sells you something at your front door without...Read more »
