The Intractable Pain Act provides a defense to licensed physicians for prescribing narcotics to certain patients with intractable pain. It provides a defense to criminal prosecution and does not create a civil cause of action, much less one against the state.
That does not REQUIRE a... Read more »
I also need answers about laws broken and other rights violated.
answered on Sep 17, 2022
An Arkansas attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. You need to search for attorneys who handle Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) matters. You could try searching under ADA and civil rights law firms. You could check with the Arkansas Bar Association. Most... Read more »
It was years back, abusive ex husband I left showed up where I was staying and assaulted me. I had no job and was pregnant. I had no idea the consequences of pleading guilty. I was out on bail. At plea hearing the judge said if I plead not guilty he was going to put me in jail even after my... Read more »

"It was years back" is a real problem with your case. An overbearing judge may have unintentionally misled you. You were probably not in a state of mind to appreciate what was happening to you at that time as well. What you describe is fraught with problems from a legal perspective.... Read more »
We bought a house last year that has turned out to be a money pit. We've wasted quite a bit of money on repairs, while also finding out that the whole street is pretty much a party street. We're out of city limits, so the cops say theres nothing they can do. I'm enrolled in online... Read more »

Under the circumstances, you describe I would sell and move. You need direct advice from a tax guy, but you a reasonable period of time to reinvest to avoid capital gains.
Do you have a county sheriff or local constable? If you are in the county there is some county-wide law enforcement body.

Possibly but the statute of limitations on lawsuits like that is typically 3 years. I’m unaware of a way to sue in Arkansas for something like this beyond the three year point. I’m not saying you can’t, I’m just saying I’m not aware of a way to do it. This is not legal advice you need to... Read more »

Last day of your contract that you are not going to sign another lease, can they still penalize you? What’s the point of signing a contract for X amount of months if you have to tell them that you were going to terminate the lease on the day that you already signed and agreed to terminate the lease?
answered on Sep 2, 2021
It depends on what your lease says. If the lease is silent as to any notice requirements before moving out, you are perfectly within your rights to move out the last day of the lease and are under no further obligation to your landlord. However, if the lease requires a notice prior to moving out,... Read more »

They have to have reasonable suspicion to ruin the dog or they have to have another person running the dog while they continue writing you a traffic ticket

Not unless there believe you’re a witness to a crime or have reasonable suspicion to believe you have committed a crime.

As a general rule of thumb, yes, the court for one county can serve the warrant for the other and arrest you (to allow the transfer). It does make a difference if the warrant was from another state though since many states, including Arkansas, often don't arrest individuals appearing in their... Read more »

In order to sue a police officer you have to usually prove that somebody has successfully sued over an extremely similar issue in the past. Which is difficult because it means the first person to sue over a unique issue will usually not recover any money.
Did this happen in Arkansas or Oklahoma?
My husband was arrested and taken to the police station for booking/questioning.

If there is enough equity in the home to justify a sale, then you will have to file an Action for a Partition Sale. Hire a competent attorney.
Looking for area of law that covers this. Perhaps Education or Consumer Law (?) - covering Title IX and/or VI violations.

An Arkansas attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for four weeks. There are attorneys who handle cases under those titles - you could start by reaching out to them. Good luck

You can't possess those in Arkansas as a felon, but air rifles are probably legal.
You can get a pardon from the governor if the conviction was in Arkansas.

If that's all you did, it wasn't. If you were arrested because of that or charges, you've got a lawsuit.
