I, and a friend, were harassed and discriminated against by two employees for not wearing a mask while shopping at a local grocery store. I can't afford to hire an attorney, so I'll have to go pro per. Are there any cases for a similar lawsuit? Thanks.
The law, in the form of Executive Orders by the California Governor, makes it UNLAWFUL for you to refuse to wear a mask when going in public or into grocery stores. So you want to sue the store because they did not want you to break the law in the store.
The store can require you to wear a mask if you want to shop inside the store. It is a state requirement that everyone must wear a mask if you want to go inside any store which remains open for business in California. Last I checked, Orange County was still part of California. The governor has...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 »
Also in the hallways and stairways and now a camera is being installed in our elevator and common areas and entrances and exits when I signed my lease I didn’t agree to be monitored 24 7. Is this legal or our privacy being invaded?
The answer that you don't want is that the law does impose duties on LLs to provide security in the common areas of this kind of complex. From your description, I would think that this complex is in the center of the bullseye for a number of nefarious types who are looking to harm seniors...Read more »
If those are Natural rights and not privileges, and the Constitution doesn't give the federal government the power to strip rights away, how have they been able to justify doing so, even with a felony conviction?

You can legally protest, but if you intend to go anywhere to do so, be sure to advise your parents where you are going and with what you intend to get involved. It is always better to show a level of maturity, and in many, if not most, families, it can be helpful to discuss your feelings either...Read more »

I don't think think so. You are a guest of the property owner, who can set whatever limits they want on those persons they allow to reside on their property. You say it is a shelter. So the owners apparently want to assure themselves that no guests can bring any kind of contraband onto their...Read more »
