You question is ambiguous, because I don't understand what you mean by "body search". If that means to search you for contraband, such as items the shelter's rules may prohibit you from bringing into the shelter, then the answer is yes, you can be searched for prohibited items...Read more »

We contested the personal and financial conservatorship of my mother. During the hearing, our court appointed public defender who spoke to my mother once, without me, totally made the case for the other side. Her speech definitely convinced the judge to grant conservatorship. She did not represent... Read more »
Your experience is not unusual. It’s not the job of the public defender to contest the conservatorship in all instances, especially if it’s clear to the PD that the need for a conservatorship exists based on personal observation, a review of a doctor’s capacity declaration, interviews with...Read more »
The new orders issued yesterday and today from the Office of the Governor now create a state-wide mandate for the use of masks in public places. This means if you are over 2 years old (because if you are under 2 you cannot read the Order) you have to wear a face mask, waiting in line to enter a...Read more »

However, in certain circumstances, the clerk of the court will issue an abstract on a partial judgment. See Lucky United v. Lee (2010) 185 Cal.App.4th 125, 131, 142 (clerk issued abstract of judgment and...Read more »
From your question it seems that you were involved in some kind of traffic collision, and when you went to talk with the other driver, he pulled a gun on you, so you fled. I have to say at first blush, that seems like a pretty reasonable reaction to me. To cover yourself, you need to report this...Read more »
I paid in full cash in March and it was supposed to be picked up my mid March but then everything closed, they now want me to pick it up but prom is over and I was supposed to receive it months ago. How do I get my refund.
If they refuse to give you a refund even considering you were never able to use the dress and they failed to deliver when it was due, it seems you have at least two choices available to you. 1. Take possession of the dress to use at a later date, or so you can sell it to someone who can later make...Read more »

More information is needed in order to respond to your inquiry. Any lawyer would need the full context of what you are talking about.

I live in an urban community of ~250 units in downtown San Diego, CA. Our bylaws allow unrestricted "ingress and egress" to the units. Can the HOA force residents to do things in common areas that MUST be used to access private residences? The talk has mostly been around elevators and stairwells
Typical lawyer answer: It depends. On its face it certainly sounds like it could be unlawful discrimination on the basis of race. This includes protesting the racial harassment or discrimination of others.
It depends on what you mean by standing up for your community. If that meant...Read more »
I received an email from Red lobster saying that a patron has filed a complaint with the Los Angeles Superior Court. In the complaint, the patron has asked for judgment against Red Lobster, the general manager, and myself for negligence, the Unrue act, and intentional infliction of emotional... Read more »
You should not hesitate to let Red Lobster have their attorneys represent you. As an employee who was working within the scope of your employment, they have a duty to provide you with a defense. You can bet they will have a good law firm retained for that purpose. You can start by preparing a...Read more »
