The Maryland Uniform Citation form has an inset box on the lower right portion of the ticket that contains instructions on how to pay, plead to the ticket, and how to request a tial date, and it states the timeframe (30 days) you have to do it in. It is in small print, so perhapse yu overlooked...Read more »

Please understand that I do not practice law in GA and will not pretend to know Georgia law or specific Georgia election statutes. However, the question I would pose is: is Georgia a "right to work" state? Another question might be: does Georgia law prohibiting harassment apply to...Read more »
An Idaho attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. It's usually not a problem in most settings. You included personal injury as a category.

The specific answer to your question is too complicated to be answered on a forum such as this. To answer this question, you would need to review the municipal code's laws governing eligibility to run for city council in your town--presumably there is a residency requirement---and assuming...Read more »

You asked if it's a threat, but not all threats are illegal. If she is merely saying or implying, "If you sue me, bad things about you will be revealed", there's nothing unlawful about that threat. Of course, if she makes false statements to third parties that are damaging to...Read more »
