The Rules of Evidence limits the types of information/evidence that can be brought out at trial. Depending on what type of evidence you are attempting to use, there may also be case law that limits it’s admission.
My sister-in-law moved into a house with some friends. She also brought her dog. She was kicked out a few weeks later. When asked when they would be home to pick up the dog, they said that they were not going to give the dog back. They had stolen a family member of our house. What are the options... Read more »
Stealing an animal is no different than stealing anything else - legally speaking. The real issue is likely to be how can you prove the dog is hers? Receipts? Vet appointments? Especially prior to her moving in? If you think you can prove the ownership issue, then you can first file a police...Read more »
You mentioned that you were "assaulted" at work. You did not mentioned if it was someone in the company, or a third-person. For example, you work at a convenience store and it was robbed and you were assaulted by a customer. You need take the steps available to you through work, but going...Read more »
I left the scene before cops arrived "Which is considered a "hit and run" the person who hit me is at fault and was not injured nor were any of her passengers. I have not filed a report, nor spoke with police about the matter. I am afraid, because I don't have insurance, I will... Read more »
You pose an interesting, and all too common set of issues. If you are in accident caused by someone's negligence, and do not have auto insurance, then you are entitled to recovery your monetary damages (for example, medical bills, lost wages, property loss). In other words, you cannot recover...Read more »
It is not against oregon law to have a baton as a felon. It is not a prohibited item under ORS 166.270. You could always petition to restore gun rights in your county of residence, or expunge the crime, if otherwise eligible. That would be the only route to lawfully own firearms again.
As Heirs and Next Of Kin, you and the Sisters have standing to file a Will Contest. Hopefully you have not waited too long as assets can be dissipated quickly. Get your Witnesses together, along with medical records, to prove Dementia. Hire a competent attorney.
This fine is devastating and seems way out of line with the infraction. There was no one at the intersection (except the officer), he was driving under the speed limit, and he made a conscious decision when he saw the stop sign that it would be safer to drive through it than to slam on the breaks....

I was making a purchase in a Chevron convenient store located in Dexter Oregon and they charged me 5 cents for a paper bag that was from WinCo is that against the law especially during this whole Corona virus epidemic
An Oregon consumer rights attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. That rule is being implemented by cities all over the nation and is more closely tied to recycling/waste reduction than to the pandemic. Good luck
FOIA requests can generally be made by any person to any federal agency, but requests can also be denied for any number of reasons. If you are requesting information from a local police department, this is often done using a public information request.
No. A black powder or muzzle-loader is considered a 'firearm' under Oregon law. Unlike federal law, Oregon views these types of 'antique firearms' the same as any other firearm. They do not differentiate between these types of firearms. You would have to have your rights...Read more »
I am not clear whether the Order restrains you or the other person. Regardless, whichever of you is restrained is prohibited from contact with the other - and that includes at work. Violate the Order and that person is likely to end up in jail.
In light of the moment-by-moment changes being made to federal, state and local laws as all the governments try to handle all aspects of the Corona virus pandemic sweeping the world I have decided not even to try to answer any of the scores of "what if" questions being posted by askers...Read more »
I had a friend who wanted a conviction off his record. I went with him to speak to an attorney I recommended. At one point the attorney told my friend he could go back to the original attorney that represented him on the case that resulted in the conviction and that attorney would do the Motion to...

It is almost never free to set aside cases. It can cost anywhere from $700-$800 for the attorneys fees. Its a fairly simplistic process. You do not have to, and most folks do not go back to the original attorney who handled the case.
You may petition to restore your Oregon gun rights from Oregon. That allows you to have firearms under Oregon law, and obtain an Oregon Concealed Handgun License. It would not fully restore your federal rights, as the feds require restoration in the jurisdiction of conviction. So this would...Read more »
Oregon law allows allows a victim of child sexual abuse to bring a lawsuit at any time until the victim turns 40 years old or 5 years after the victim knew or should have known of the causal connection of the injury and the child abuse, whichever is later.
