zoom court hearing recording was sent to someone who wasn’t the party involved. The recording was sent to me by someone who wasn’t involved and was sent to them by the person who was involved in the case.
It seems to me, the appropriate party to complain to is the court itself, since the offense, if any, was a violation of court rules established to protect the court process. You (or your lawyer) should provide the evidence of the improper party's involvement in the hearing and recording of it...Read more »

An attorney in the District of Columbia could advise best, but your post remains open for three weeks.

You posted this as a personal injury question, and appear to be looking to sue based on conduct that would be a crime here if committed here, but the conduct was committed in a foreign country where it is not a crime. Not all crimes give rise to a civil cause of action. Criminal prosecution can...Read more »

Your understanding is incorrect. You are not at the same kind of risk if you give proper 30-day notice and then file suit. That will merely be dismissed. But, if you attempt self-help, you are at grave risk. Buy a consult with a lawyer. For starters, it's a 90-day notice. Next, if the property...Read more »
I have disgruntle non-communicating holdover tenants with only one name is on the non-renewal lease. I am not accepting any more rent and would like for them to leave. Do I still need to wait the 60 days after the moratorium ends to file. I don’t intend ever to use property for rental again. The... Read more »
Take the rent money. You still need to wait after the moratorium. Holding over is not a valid basis to evict in DC, but you can evict if you plan to use the property for personal use. I'm sure anyone who responds would be happy to help if you decide to hire a lawyer. Good luck.
Yes. If you try to provide notice or file with the court before the moratorium ends, the court will either reject the filing now or reject it later. I'm sure anyone who responds would be happy to help if you decide to hire a lawyer. Good luck.

If not, then it suggests that you were successful in getting relief, so you should...Read more »
I had a fling for a couple of months in Mexico. I am an American living in DC and he is a Canadian. We fooled around and filmed it, I don't have a copy of the video. I noticed he posted it on his Only Fans without my explicit consent. He did crop my face out of the video and blur out both my... Read more »
The video appears to have been consensually made, so in most jurisdiction the mere creation of the video would not be a crime. You would need to ask a lawyer in Mexico whether that country prohibits the making of sexually explicit videos when both parties consent. Otherwise, it would not be...Read more »
The judge will consider the Motion to Withdraw. He or she will consider the reasons for the Motion, then make a decision of the Motion. The attorney who made the Motion still represents, you until the Motion to Withdraw is granted and ordered by the judges.
It depends what country you are from. You should look at the Dept of State's website for current COVID related restrictions. See: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/traveladvisories/ea/covid-19-information.html
