William John Light's answer To be a hostile work environment, the comments have to be pervasive (meaning a lot of them) or severe, such that they alter your working environment. Without knowing exactly what was said, and when, and the context, and how many times, it would be impossible to evaluate whether you have anything approaching a hostile work environment claim.
You can complain to HR, or to the DFEH (https://www.dfeh.ca.gov/complaint-process/file-a-complaint/). If you are retaliated against, you have a...
William John Light's answer Your employer has the right to control who enters their premises. If you don't have a restraining order, it is up to the employer to determine whether this person can access the employer's property.
William John Light's answer Family code section 6250 of California law empowers an officer of the law to request for an emergency restraining order if the officer has reason to believe that the person requiring protection is in immediate danger of domestic violence from the person against whom the restraining order is being sought.
A temporary restraining order lasts between 20 to 25 days. It is issued when the judge believes you are in immediate danger and you need protection before the court rules hears your...
William John Light's answer It's very hard to decipher what is happening here, but it sounds like you have been the victim of a crime, such as identity theft. If that is accurate, contact the Placentia Police Dept., Miscellaneous Crimes Unit to report what has happened. (714) 993-8146. You may also want to consider a Restraining Order to prevent this person from contacting and/or using your likeness on social media.
William John Light's answer Hire a criminal defense attorney. There is no recourse against a false accusation except defending yourself unless your son is the victim of intentional misconduct. It would be a very difficult case to claim that a 5 year old was intentionally lying and that a psychologist was intentionally lying.
William John Light's answer It sounds like a crime against humanity. No, wait, I meant indecent exposure. https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/codes_displaySection.xhtml?sectionNum=314.&lawCode=PEN
William John Light's answer Why don't you ask your HR dept. what they think of your idea? If you like your intern that much, quit your job, then ask him/her out. What you are describing is per se sexual harassment. Power disparity, ability to affect the intern's career. No decision your intern makes can possibly be unaffected by those factors. Which make you a jerk for putting him/her in that position.

As a result, I don't believe that you have an enforceable right to use your filming and are open to potential lawsuits from the guardians of these minors.
Two, what "social experiment"? For a school/academic project? For your viral YouTube/ SnapChat/ Instagram channel? Frankly, your description sounds sketchy.
William John Light's answer You are asking for a legal opinion about a specific case, with very few facts and no compensation to the attorney for the risk in giving an opinion.
In general, unsealed records in a Court file are public records. There are protections for victims of sexual assault, and for minors. Whether or not those protections have been waived or are inapplicable is unknown.
