Q: Can a state employee sue a private citizen in Arkansas? Is there a statute that states this? Can you cite the statute?

It depends. Clearly, a state employee can sue as an individual if a private person has harmed the employee. If the employee is not suing in an individual capacity, but rather for a wrong to the state, then they need state government authorization.

There is not enough information to tell you everything but generally, once a parole reoffends, the PO will revoke his probation and keep him in jail. The parolee now has the new charges and then the revocation. If the new charges are not too bad, the PO will keep him in jail for a month maybe... Read more »

Most civilian jurisdictions (state or municipal laws) disallow this on non-official vehicles. I would check with your local law enforcement before doing so.

Check with your state representative for starters--has nothing to do with veterans just that it's not "income" in most states. If you had sold the car that would be different--even there you'd be looking to see if you had... Read more »
