What is the exact procedure when defense atty files for motion to compel evidence, after judge grants it for two weeks WHY WOULD A DEFENSE ATTY ASK FOR A SECOND MOTION TO COMPEL AND A SANCTION. Are they able to be asking for a motion to request a dismissal of the case or a final judgment
answered on Mar 13, 2023
Apparently, what happened was that the defendant's attorney moved that the plaintiff (which, of is a criminal case, would be the government) be ordered to produce some sort of evidence. The judge gave the prosecution two weeks to produce the evidence. When the defendant's attorney... Read more »
Judge gives deadline of evidence, is state allowed to submit and use evidence after this date to convict someone
answered on Mar 11, 2023
No, if a judge grants a motion to compel and sets a deadline for the state to submit discovery, the state is not allowed to submit or use any evidence that was not submitted by the deadline. This is because the purpose of the deadline is to ensure that both the prosecution and defense have adequate... Read more »
My dad’s back windshield was hit by a fruit or a rock or something and it was smashed. He called the insurance and they said they would cover it if it was the front windshield but because it is the back the back then the deductible still applies. I was reading the law and it says motor vehicle... Read more »

Interesting issue, which I don't have expertise in, but my somewhat-educated guess is: Regarding the issue of disclosure itself, without regard to whether it causes damage to the corporation, the answer to your question may depend on whether your corporation has a written confidentiality...

So I asked this question prior and it was removed so I have no idea why. I found an abandoned vehicle in a parking lot that I frequent. The vehicle is clearly abandoned and it’s down bad. Tags are many years expired, I contacted police and they said it’s not their problem. I’d like to contact... Read more »

Since the vehicle is on private land, that landowner possesses the vehicle. The statutory procedures for acquiring title to abandoned property (including vehicles) would help you only if the vehicle were on public land. See Florida Statutes Chapter 705 at:... Read more »
It is the Treaty that helps the people called Black in the US. They are actually American Indians.
answered on Dec 26, 2022
It was a treaty with several Native American tribes and England that was signed in Virginia in 1677. It gave the tribes control over their home lands and the right to bear arms in exchange for loyalty to the Crown.

I'm tired of hearing people say, after I explained what happened to me, OMG you need an attorney. Can an individual sue the county?
answered on Dec 6, 2022
In theory, yes but government bodies may be immune from suit under a doctrine called sovreign immunity. Nobody online can give you the level or quality of advice you'd need to be able to act on your own; only an attorney whom you retain to resolve the issue can do that.

Several court reporters are refusing to submit a electronic transcript to a litigant in an attempt to conceal a fraudulent court. The court reporters have made unlawful misinformation statements to the litigant and told them that they needed a lawyer for these transcripts, that they had to go to... Read more »

That's weird. A reporter must provide a requested transcript to a party to the case if the party pays the estimated cost up front, and an appropriate motion to the court may be made to seek relief. Which law applies depends on which court you're in.
The State of Florida DBPR no longer requires a person to have a State Body Wrapping license as of July 2020. Can a City in FL still require a Body Wrap specialist to have a City Business Tax Receipt in order to do Body Wrapping?
answered on Nov 2, 2022
Yes, a City Business Tax Receipt is an occupational license rather than a professional license.
State Attorney stated if I chose to have my witness show up and provide statement then I would no longer be able allowed to choose the PTI option offered to me. I saw this as unfair because they chose to file charges without looking at my witnesses statement.
answered on Sep 1, 2022
Your inquiry is a bit vague regarding what you mean by having your "witness show up and provide statement", but I'm guessing you mean "set the case for trial and have my witness testify at trial." It is totally up to the prosecutor what deal to offer you. If they wish,... Read more »
Just days before the primaries, governor DeSantis made sure not to clarify that these voters were felons who thought their rights were restored.

I applied for Medicaid coverage for my newborn last month. Because they have taken so long to process the application, I will now be responsible for nearly 1,000 dollars in pediatrician bills. Can I sue the government?
answered on Jun 4, 2022
It is unlikely that you would prevail. The government, the federal government in this case, has probably not waived its sovereign immunity.

Most counties have these ordinances because most homeowners do not want to see recreational vehicles and boats parked in their communities. Challenging a law in court is not an easy or cheap...
