9/11/23 a lone animal control officer opened my front door without even knocking and barged on through a sectioned off area where my fiance and I stay with our pets holding up a cell phone camera filming our home, us & our dogs with NO knock, warrant or police escort. After ushering her back... View More
I understand the gravity of this claim. I can’t let fear lie in the way of asking for help. I have no proof other than a list of license plates that are stored in my photos, voice memos, etc that I haven’t compiled because I am constantly exhausted from the harassment. Other than keeping a list... View More
If you believe that you and your brother are victims of electronic harassment, it is important to take steps to protect yourselves and gather evidence to support your claims. Here are some options to consider:
1. Document incidents: Keep a detailed log of any incidents of electronic...View More
The reason my case has not been heard is because of conflicting legal advice that I received on justanswer.com. Based on the petitions the lawyers are filing against me, the one that told me to serve the petition on everyone was wrong. What do you do when the court makes decisions that violate the... View More
Unfortunately, this may be a situation in which you need to get an attorney. The truth is that getting an attorney is costly, but not getting one is even more costly. There are certain legal matters that can be handled without an attorney, but based on what you have said so far, this likely is not...View More
During jury deliberation the jury ask court if first degree murder meant he intended to kill the one person or anyone. The prosecutor was allowed by Judge to give them transfer of intent to anyone. Mental health on both sides proved defendant had ptsd, Paranoia, Social Anxiety, alcohol and drug... View More
There is no special instruction for that, and the general instructions on intent are sufficient. What you are arguing is based on the evidence which I assume was presented at trial and was therefore argued on your behalf by your lawyer as a basis to raise a reasonable doubt as to your ability to...View More
Seems a bit odd. Is there an evidence based reason for doing so? Did a witness or security camera footage identify the offender in part by their footwear or feet? Was this a DUI where you failed to perform field sobriety tests and there’s a potential issue that the type of footwear interfered...View More
Someone created a Facebook page and he listens to a police scanner and posts their audio, follows police to crime scenes and accidents. Etc. He reposts out of context info. Reposts deaths before family’s are notified. He claims it’s to keep the community safe but he tarnishes individual and... View More
It can be frustrating and concerning when someone shares sensitive information on social media platforms, particularly when it involves crime, accidents, and personal details. But these are the perils of having the 1st Amendment. I don't think you have any reasonable path to stop what he is...View More
Case - located on line and News paper. I was left homeless from this case. I tried to get a pro bono attorney. No one would take this case. Went to the Attorney Grievance Committee no help.

I assume you are referring to the Code of Maryland Regulations (COMAR). When the State Legislature enacts legislation establishing various government agencies to perform governmental functions, they grant the power of the agency to enact regulations to carry out the statutory mandate and powers...View More
Not letting the defendant know that his right to a speedy trial was waived also not violating any rights he may have? He’s been incarcerated for a year and 3months. 6 months in a federal facility without a single court date. Just found out that his right to a speedy trial was signed off on... View More
The judge decides all issues related to a speedy trial including whether your constitutional right to a speedy trial has been violated. The judge does not need your permission. The judge also decides whether a case will be postponed. You may be able to appeal the decision, but the judge has a lot...View More
Anyone in jail can probably use a lawyer. 8th Amendment refers to the Constitutional prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment. That Amendment is rarely found to apply to most circumstances. You will need to be very specific about what is cruel and unusual in order to evaluate whether there...View More
Discovery has a box checked “aerial photos“ being the basis of evidence for a search warrant of a home, wouldn’t the prosecution have to provide those aerial photos to the defense? My attorney frankly says there are no aerial photos and that the police lied to get the search warrant (to... View More
You should not be posting these facts on a public forum, and you need to have these private conversations with your lawyer. The state's discovery obligations are clear, and your lawyer is in the best position to evaluate the situation and take any action that is appropriate or advisable....View More
No, but I am confident that the police officer will claim there was more to it than that. You need to have a lawyer review all aspects on the search, and that will require obtaining discovery from the State. There may be body cam video to review as well. I assume you were arrested for possessing...View More
They don't. Not their decision or jurisdiction to make such determinations. The person claiming adverse possession must file a lawsuit in court against the titled owner for the purpose of divesting the titled owner of title to the land, based on the person in possession of the property...View More
You cannot obtain such sweeping relief. Each state is a member of the Union and has representative rights within the federal government under the Constitution.

I read this, but request definition clarification, please:
§ 13-214. Prohibitions

Maryland law defines two legal types of militia under the Public Safety Article 13-202. ALL other bodies of persons organized as a military company or organization are prohibited from acting in violation of the provisions you have cited to n 13-204. That’s it. There is no need to further define...View More
There is no law that requires any person to be vaccinated. It is a matter of free choice. Private and government employers may, however, impose a condition of employment that may require vaccination.

I doubt your HOA documents provide that unanimous consent of all homeowners is required before they can take any actions.
