Under those circumstances they may not be liable for the attack but there may be liability for the failure to provide proper care. Your best bet is to contact the Pennsylvania Civil Liberties Union, ask for their prison rights project.

Technically, you would file an action to quiet title. Or you would ask that person to sign the title over to you. Otherwise you treat it as abandoned property, and have it disposed of. To cover yourself I would suggest you notify the police first.

Not sure what you mean by the right thing--if they are paying for the repair to the body shop, then they would be doing the right thing.

The problem is you drove to the parking lot. The statutes should be on your citation.

If you have improper equipment then you can be cited for operating a vehicle without the correct equipment assuming you are not on your own land--because you had to get there.

They can ask for partition which is a fancy way of saying sell the house and split the proceeds. They can't make him leave but they have an equal right of possession.

Generally, it would depend on the situation. A traffic stop is for violation of the traffic laws. Assuming you entered your car in a garage and never exited the car in public it would not be indecent exposure. If you wore a bathrobe over it I don't see an issue.
