Be sure to go to court on October 29, or the Court can rule without you. This does not appear to be an Appeal or Civil Rights case. Contact the people that notified you about the civil demand to see what the status is.

Sorry to hear that your medical condition caused you pain. What you have is a potential "Governmental claim" and you should seek the assistance of a local Personal Injury attorney. You have a limited time to file a "Government claim form" against the agency that provided the EMTs.

Unless the gas station owner was the government, this is not "Civil Rights". Sounds like you have the perfect case for Small Claims. Take all the receipts for paying to get your car out.

Q: Can police officers arrest me on suspision
Louis George Fazzi
Louis George Fazzi answered on Sep 7, 2021

Insufficient information provided. It is hard to answer general questions such as yours without any facts being provided.

Usually, for the police to arrest you, they need probable cause to believe that you have committed a crime. Mere suspicion, without more, is usually insufficient for an arrest.
