Talk to a CA injury lawyer ASAP. There are strict deadlines for making legal claims, and those deadlines are often much shorter for claims against public entities and employees.

Depends on the type of lawsuit and the State. All civil claims have deadlines (statutes of limitations). Check with a local lawyer who works in the practice area in which you have a claim.

Andy Chen's answer
A private party can refuse anyone they want admission so what the asst manager did is not technically wrong. However, I would doubt the asst manager knew the precise rules on who she can and can't exclude. For example, if she excluded all Hispanic people because of their race, that would clearly not be allowed.

Seth S. Gaskins' answer
If you are referring to licensed concealed carry reciprocity then the answer is no. Maryland does not have reciprocity with West Virginia; however, Pennsylvania does. If you are simply talking about transporting an unloaded and unconcealed weapon across state lines, you will need to consult the law in each state to find out what the requirements are for transporting a weapon.

Q: What to do for being wrongfully Attrested

Answered on May 6, 2015

Follow Question


Andrew "Andy" Potter's answer
Is there still a charge pending against you? If so, you cannot sue for being wrongfully arrested until the charges are either dismissed or you are acquitted at trial. Even then, you may have a difficult time making a case that you were wrongfully arrested. You need to hire an experienced criminal defense lawyer to protect your interests.
