Yes, it is true that in Rhode Island the plaintiff's initial complaint that is filed in court should not request a specific dollar amount for personal injuries. But, the plaintiff can ask the defendant or the insurance company for a specific dollar amount in out of court settlement...Read more »
I'm under the impression that the only time one is required to give ID during a traffic stop is if you're the driver, OR if the police officer has a reasonable, articulable suspicion that you've committed a crime, or are in the process of committing a crime.
In general you are correct. But an officer doesn’t have to furnish you with a reason when he/she/they ask for your ID. Whether the officer has an articulable suspicion is usually evaluated after the fact by a judge or jury. Nothing prevents you from asking why the officer wants ID. But use...Read more »

This is something a Rhode Island landlord-tenant attorney should advise on. But your post remains open for four weeks. The other categories aren't really relevant. But as a practical matter at this point, if the dynamic in such close confines is uncomfortable, whatever the state of affairs...Read more »
It's difficult to discern what you are asking exactly. As a RI resident, you should be able to register your vehicle in RI(and are generally required to do so). If you are going to court, bring proof of your RI registration and residence. see...Read more »
Well, there must be a reason for the denial. Did you ask? Have you had a BCI check run with the Department of Attorney General or a police department? I believe the governor has extended the waiting period for gun purchases. I suggest that you directly inquire why your request was denied. If...Read more »
They did not as such I was scared and called the police. I wanted them to leave me alone and they refused then continued to verbally threaten me, harass and get in my face when I was near the female. To me this is 100% illegal. Situation was in Cranston, Rhode Island.
"Near the female" situations can be challenging both for humans and their companions. If the situation stops when you are not near the female, avoid being near the female. Free speech does have some limits. Contact your attorney if you are interested in bringing a lawsuit for the...Read more »
So the police put a NCO on him because he hit me and now he has a felony. Now we are getting along and he is helping out with my kids. I got accepted into housing and want to add him on my lease so I don’t get in trouble when he’s there all the time. The landlord for low income housing needs... Read more »
You may want to go to the court to explain to the judge that you wish to have the NCO dropped to enable you to enjoy cohabitation and co-parent. If you just really need help with the kids and you are, in fact still in fear of imminent harm that supports a NCO, then you should probably seek the...Read more »
Assuming you are the parent, and you have given your child permission to walk (to unknown destination? Friends house - ? Food Hut? Dunkin? ), then it should be OK. If you have not given your child permission and they are Walking (running away), call the police. Some parts of Cranston are more...Read more »
Filling out the Federal Civil Cover sheet on my own. It says to cite US Statutes for my claims. I am suing for violation of Due Process under 14th Amendment. My dog was taken and killed. I know 1983 for violation of rights but I also need to cite the 14th amendment clause for deprivation of... Read more »
This really is not a civil rights question. But if the house is yours, and she has no ownership interest such as a lease has paid rent, you can probably get a trespass order from the police. Be careful about what you’re doing here. Your sister is still going to be your sister.
I don't see a question here. However, you are a minor, and if you are living at home, your parents are going to have a say as to who can come to their house. And while I understand that affairs of the heart can cause people to do and say many things, a judge is going to be very skeptical...Read more »
We only have one source of income (being approximately $600 a month) currently and are behind by two months rent. However, we have lived at this house for close to 8 years and have had many problems. From the kitchen, the paint on the ceiling is peeling off, the oven does not work, and the faucet... Read more »
It may be time to look for: 1) a new, different, and better maintained residence/apartment and/ or 2) a second source of income and/or 3) an attorney to help you defend against a likely eviction case should your landlord decide to take you to court. Contact your local CAP agency for help with #1...Read more »
