Depending on where the dog came from, it is very likely a PACFA violation. Age could also be a problem (a dog sold too young (i.e., less than 8 weeks old) to receive certain shots is a violation - although dogs do not have all their shots at 8 weeks due to boosters being necessary over a period of...Read more »
I am currently 6.5 months pregnant, and have been granted an accommodation by my workplace to complete my work remotely for the duration of my pregnancy. In January, during my first trimester, I started to experience severe motion sickness that limited my ability to complete my 45 minute drive to... Read more »

Parked at a gas station to pee and cop pulls next to me in my car and get out and goes in store before I get out. But he was looking at my car all suspiciously so I waited. He stands at the door inside the store then comes back out flashing his lights in my car and come and bangs on my window and... Read more »
This sounds like a terrible scenario that you experienced. So sorry you lived through that.
If you were parked and only stopped because of suspicion that you committed a traffic infraction - an infraction for which the officer's story is not credible if he waited a significant amount...Read more »
I am purchasing my first home, after signing the purchase agreement we were told that HOA only allows a 4 ft fence. The fence is pretty climb-able and open so I was told we could add chicken wire. This still would not work for us because my 5 yr old special needs child is autistic/wanderer and can... Read more »
It would be important to know what type of case it is. Courts have subject matter jurisdiction over certain subjects so it is not possible to determine what type of case it is based on whether there is a motion to modify some unspecified thing and there were no stipulations filed.
They have caused us to miss visits by scheduling then on holidays and during a dental appointment we wasn't allowed to attend as promised. I need help proving this and someone that will stand up for we are being violated our children's rights are being violated
The general statement of things that you have provided here certainly seems unfair and should consult with a lawyer so that they can learn more details about your situation and advise you on your best options/defenses. There is not information in this post to adequately respond to your concerns...Read more »
The lies were proven in court and judge told her to return the child and she did not. She hid my child causing her to not be able to attend school, I thought my child might be dead. At contempt hearing the judge said there was not an order even though I have a recording of him saying it and last... Read more »
First off, I am so sorry you're experiencing this.
Now, unfortunately, what you've written here is a bit confusing and inconsistent. On one hand, you're saying that there was a formal contempt order from the court, but on the other hand you're saying the same judge...Read more »
Wondering if its legal to obtain, and carry, at 18 or under 21 considering, antique firearms are not recognized as actual firearms on the federal level. Want to make sure this is the case in CO as well as I can't find any laws excluding or including such firearms in colorado law.
The answer to your question is: it depends. It depends on what "antique" gun means. Someone would need more information as to the style and structure of the gun to see if it meets the legal definition requirements for a "handgun." In Colorado, any person under age 18 may not...Read more »
I have a warrant in Colorado for not showing up to their court for a hearing about restitution. I was coerced into a deferred sentence and given a restitution and misdemeanor. These people never intended to treat me fairly. I have never been a resident of Colorado. I was just driving through and... Read more »
Found an outstanding warrant for me in FL. He threatened to arrest me if we returned to the property. This left us homeless, immediately, literally, and we lost most of our possessions that were left after moving due to COVID. We are now destitute. Was this legal for this officer to do this to me?
I am very sorry for your situation but the short answer is yes - if the question is can the officer ran a criminal history on someone he legally contacts. If the warrant was out of state and a felony - he most likely would have arrested you and held you for extradition. Most often - when the...Read more »
in 2002 i was charged in colorado for possession/knowledge of possession of explosives/incendiary device, but the definition section of that law discredits the materials my roommate had (materials used to reload ammunition, and or black powder muskets) my public defenders failed me and mislead me...

social media. She constantly makes various profiles to try and contact me and has added my friends and family. Over the last year she has sent people to break my car windows on 4 separate occasions, yet the police say that the video footage is not enough to connect the vandalism to her. I would... Read more »
I feel there was no reasonable cause for an arrest to be made. The statements were false and I did not bother anyone in the building. The charges were dissmised in the interest of Justice. I am wondering if I have a potential case to sue for damages, economic losses, and non economic losses?
Your question does not provide enough detail to analyze whether this would violate the law. If you are an otherwise qualified individual who was not offered the position because of your disability, then you may have a claim under the Americans with Disabilities Act. However, you would not be...Read more »
If you are talking about an FAC and a plea, this sounds like it might be closer to criminal law than maritime law (unless there are facts not mentioned that would be relevant for the Admiralty/Maritime category). Since time is of the essence in your matter, you might have better chances of a prompt...Read more »
I'm sorry for your difficult situation, but freedom of expression is generally something associated with state action on restricting speech, not usually something that applies to private settings. Good luck
I'm the plaintiff in a civil case, yesterday was our first day in court. The defendant had not filed a response, the judge told her she had to file yesterday and give me a copy yesterday. I did not receive it. What can I do now?
No due process? I was not given a lawyer and falsely arrested for fleeing. I committed no crime and video shows no probable cause to pull me over. I was pursued 2 blocks from home where officers were on a call from a caller who said I was dead. (NOT SUICIDAL) dead because of suicide. It was obvious... Read more »
