I got pulled over for expired tags. Police beat me up badly and didnt know my neighbor's cameras caught the whole thing. I didn't know I had a warrant and the police officer never mentioned anything about me having a warrant either. Now that I'm fighting the charges, they're trying to say that they... Read more »
You are right in that it does not make sense that they would find a warrant for you based on looking up someone else's license plates. There are a lot of different reasons police pull people over. Here, if the tags were actually expired, that is a legitimate reason. However, sometimes a police...Read more »

I was assaulted by the guards producing bodily injuries. And because I blow the whistle there was abuse of my due process and there was a malicious prosecution under color of law and on 5-9-19 my case was dismissed. Can I sue the County
You can sue the guards for assault and battery if the charges against you were dismissed. The time within which to do so is short, so you should contact a lawyer with experience in civil rights cases to guide you through the process. You could also sue the county which employed the deputies. A good...Read more »

I believe the age at which you can legally buy marijuana and its related products is still 21 years old in California. I believe it is the same whether you want to get alcohol or marijuana. I'm unsure if the same rules apply to medical marijuana, however. One way to find out is to go into a medical...Read more »

My husband and I checked in on 8/30/2018. We have been here continuously, since. I have receipts to prove this. With that TCA, does the police not have to enforce the law as stated, even though it is civil? This hotel also turned our power off, and I know this is illegal as well, so I flagged a... Read more »
You are incorrect. The Police enforce criminal law violations. It is up to the citizen or the civil authorities to enforce common law, statutes and equitable principles in the Courts of our State. You may have a cause of action to sue for damages or to enjoin what you believe are illegal...Read more »
Probably not. If you read this provision (also known as the Bill of Rights for Mental Health Patients), it does not appear to contain any mandatory language.
