You might file a Sessions suit for the Lease Breach by not paying, if you know how to serve her. If you get a Tennessee Judgment for the Rent owing, you can file it as a Judgment Lien in whatever County in Maine she lives in. I do not know how many years the Lien will be good for, but this may...Read more »

What does the lease say about damages or venue? Your question is also confusing - did she lease property in Tennessee and move to Maine, or the other way? Typically, you sue the person where they leased the property but you will need to serve her with the lawsuit where she lives now. Here in...Read more »
If you lose on the 23rd you would have 10 days to vacate or the landlord can file a writ of possession and have the sheriff remove you. Or you could appeal within 10 days should you lose. As for the procedure - that's not a question that can be answered here as it can be complicated. You should...Read more »
You probably got arrested/cited for Going Armed, which is a Class A Misdemeanor. That is a 11 mo/29 days possible Sentence. If LEO's took your weapons, then they may have had legal justification or they may not have. Since there is a Criminal Charge you must be careful how you demand and maybe...Read more »
Your demand letter in conjunction with a criminal complaint could possibly be construed as extortion. If you still wish to pursue, then call the Sheriff, then Police, then District Attorney General. Finally you have a statutory right to file an affidavit in support of being heard before the next...Read more »
I've been put thru hell since last court case and divorce. I've reached out to law and or friends. I need a chance at successful life. Career advancement and i want to know about placement for witnesses for gov.
My husband and I checked in on 8/30/2018. We have been here continuously, since. I have receipts to prove this. With that TCA, does the police not have to enforce the law as stated, even though it is civil? This hotel also turned our power off, and I know this is illegal as well, so I flagged a... Read more »
You are incorrect. The Police enforce criminal law violations. It is up to the citizen or the civil authorities to enforce common law, statutes and equitable principles in the Courts of our State. You may have a cause of action to sue for damages or to enjoin what you believe are illegal...Read more »
You may want to consider consulting with an attorney to discuss in more detail. If you own the home and never signed a lease agreement then arguably your ex-boyfriend was a guest and can be required to leave by you at any time. You may want to write him a letter that specifies what he owes you and...Read more »
You must file a Detainer Warrant on him in General Sessions. Service on him or posting is notice to quit. Just ask for possession. This is only if you intend to live there as you are not the owner. You tell the Court you are a lessee and he is a sub-lessee. If not out in ten days, you must ask...Read more »
If the general public has reason and proof to believe that district attorney's offices/ law enforcement are being biased in their presentment of a case to a grand jury for indictment, what can be done?
Possibly nothing. But after Indictment the Defendant must defend against the charge. Improper Grand Jury proceedings might be argued at Pre Trial, Motion for New Trial or on Appeal. Without a clear Federal or State Constitutional violation that causes prejudice, no actionable error will arise....Read more »
They keep showing up numerous times a week without a warrant searching my home and harrassing myself and company.

Can I take a loss on this school that I am the only student that does not have a contract. I have finished my required hours for this trade. I started last year in May every time I ask for a contract I am referred as to "wait" or the instructor and owner says"I got you". Recently, I asked the... Read more »
Stop, look and listen--carefully: If you received the training you went to the school for then you MUST pay for it. Using the excuse of not having a contract will NOT work. Nor will the lame excuse do any good when the school sues you.
Stop calling them about the contract. You are now...Read more »

You have not stated if a Charge was made. If not, forget about it, but do not conduct illegal activities. If a Charge was made then hire a competent attorney to represent you at hopefully only General Sessions, but possibly Circuit Court. At Circuit you can file your Motion to

You may have a Government Tort Liability Action against the City/County and the Law Enforcement Agency. Contact a competent attorney to file suit, which is not a Jury Trial. However you may not have enough damages nor evidence. You have less than 1 year to build your Case and find an attorney.
The state of TN has adopted a policy of “rolling” enforcement facilities to combat distracted driving. Can they legally look inside your vehicle, even if it is just from the outside, if you have not committed a crime and there is no probable cause to believe you have committed a crime? Is...
