This is a concisely phrased question, but the answer could go on for pages. There are so many things that can do this. An important factor would be a lack of good evidence. Another could be that the evidence is false or misleading. Flawed analysis could be a factor, where even where there is good evidence, it is portrayed in a manner to exploit the emotions of jurors rather than in a manner that would enable an objective decision. Other factors could be that the subject matter is very complex...

You may need to immediately file an administrative grievance with the school for the appropriate tuition adjustment. Note that the statute of limitations for complaints against public entities is very short, so time is of the essence. See: http://www.courts.ca.gov/9618.htm

More details are necessary to provide a professional analysis of your issue. The best first step is an Initial Consultation with an Attorney such as myself. You can read more about me, my credentials, awards, honors,...

I'm sorry for the loss of your brother. Consult with a California attorney; you should be able to locate one who gives free consultations. Based on the limited facts, it's difficult to say whether the actions (or omissions of actions) on the part of the hospital/other medical providers were responsible here. But an experienced attorney who reviews the medical records should be able to make a more meaningful assessment of the situation.

If done intentionally it could be, but in some settings where there is overgrown grass, the operators of backhoes or maintenance vehicles might not be aware they are passing over a stone.

Your position should be that you own that trailer now because you did what they asked you to do, made it your home, fixed it up, and now it is yours. This is one area in which possession is 9/10 of the law. You are in possession, so stay in possession.

Hitting someone is a crime. Hitting a person under 18 is an aggravated assault and battery - a felony. Hopefully that will tempt you to avoid that person. You can file a restraining order against her if she pursues you, and you can contact the police if she's criminally harassing you.

Congratulations on having a baby in June.

Your boyfriend will not have rights in the house just because he pays some bills, so long as you don't agree to give him an interest in the house and it is clear that he is a tenant. I've seen this get ugly when people aren't completely clear with one another. You could enter into a rental agreement with him or have him sign a quitclaim deed to ensure this is the case.

Yes, you should have a full estate plan, including a trust, to...
