If a dealership falsely registered a car in your name you can sue. I do not know if you will be successful or if it's even worth it. Why would a dealership falsely register a car in your? What have you suffered in damages ($) ?

This question is confusing to say the least. You should reach out directly to criminal defense attorneys to discuss the matter and what legal or factual issues you might have in this case.
The prosecution office to put in her request to have it dismissed as they have small children and she wishes to work on the marriage?

Asking someone to give you "odds" on the likelihood that a DANCO will be dismissed/cancelled in these circumstances is unrealistic. That depends on a number of factors such as where the offense occurred; whether there is any prior criminal history; what the exact allegations in this case... Read more »

I went to work and was about to clock in (schedule to work at 5pm), but noticed my time card was not in the slots with the rest of the time card. Asked a supervisor and was told he doesn’t have it. Supervisor went to ask the manager and manager stated he has the time card. Manager told supervisor... Read more »

There isn't really a question here. Plus it is not a products liability issue. I'd suggest reaching out to some consumer protection folks directly to deal with this issue.

Your constitutional rights may not directly apply to the process of removing the label of a canceled I.P.S. from your record, but there may be legal avenues you can pursue to achieve this goal.
