It depends. If pictures of your dead son and message that you're a "killer" were only sent to you, that's not defamation unless it was "published" (sent to other persons). Also, be aware that if you display or otherwise disseminate the pictures and message to someone...Read more »
From getting opened at anytime that could possibly demean me. Plus I want the satisfaction of writing that good cause reasons why and expose him for the last time. His retaliating schemes and all my evidence got nowhere. Since the SC hearing, the commish. Glen Mondo ruled it totally incorrect under... Read more »

I'll make a few "if" assumptions here. If your family members are the ones harassing you/kicking you out of your room, and If you are not acting violently towards them, in California you may have claims for defamation (if the statements being made about you are false and are...Read more »

It would be very difficult to find a lawyer to go after the governmental actors but you might find some who would help you to sue the security guard. Do you know why he was lying? What was his motive? You might not be able to hold his employer responsible but the evidence could lead there. Not...Read more »

Your brother can sue. You and your mother can sue for bystander emotional distress, if you were there when your brother was shot. The success of such a case depends on the circumstances of the shooting. If the shooting was justified (self-defense, for example), there is no case. A lot will...Read more »
A coworker told my employer I lied about taking time off to go to a dentist appointment. I have proof I went to the appointment. Keep in mind, I put in my two week notice a week before I was fired and this has happened to countless other employees of this business.
That may be slander, but if you were going to leave in a week anyway, there would not be enough in damages to make a slander lawsuit worth the time and money it would take to bring it. As to the other employees, their individual situations would have to be assessed.
It depends... on the facts, the injuries, the adjuster, the insurance company, the status of your case, and even the attorney representing you. No random lawyer can answer a question like this without specific details. Consult with an attorney or several attorneys to get a better idea of the...Read more »

If anyone ever suggests they will file a police report accusing you of a crime, you remember never to speak to the police if questioned. That is what you must remember of above all else. Many cases which could be fought and won are totally ruined because the accused decided to speak with the...Read more »

Getting rid of your contingency lawyer didn't "mitigate" your costs. It, in essence, will dramatically increase your costs if you now hire a lawyer on an hourly basis. I think it's very risky for you to be pro per with some of the things that you claim have gone on in your case....Read more »
Impact was so bad that I am bruised from my seatbelt, and I do not bruise easily. Shouldn’t the SRS light be on prior the accident? Since the light turned on doesn’t that mean my airbag should’ve deployed? I called company and looked up online and there are no open recalls on my vehicle.
I was using fence post pounder to drive a pole into the ground. Straddling the top of a 6ft step-ladder.

My advice to you would be to seek out an employment attorney (most give free consultations) as soon as possible and give them the facts of your case so that they may assess whether you have any legally actionable claims.
First, this is not "libel & slander", unless you post in the right category the attorneys that could help you won't see it and no one will answer your question. Normally a person 18 can live independently, but you may have other disabilities that would prevent that. I suggest...Read more »
