When I was 12, I was charged with disturbance of peace and false terrorist threat. I warned another student about what I heard out of fear about someone “shooting the school on Monday”. Little did I know I was soon to be racially profiled being Arab as well as another girl, African American,... View More
Yes as an 18 year old you can file a lawsuit on your own behalf. Be aware that such lawsuits will take a lot of time (2-3 years) and cost you a lot of money (most likely $100,000+) and your chance of success is very low (<5%).
But, as an adult now, you are competent to make that...View More
To be more specific, I would like to know if foreign driver's licenses accompanied with English translation (i.e. international driver's permit) and a valid foreign passport with a valid U.S. visa are acceptable documents to register a vehicle and have its title transferred in the state...

Based on the information provided from the Michigan Secretary of State website, it seems that a Michigan driver’s license or ID is required to title and register a vehicle in the state. While you've mentioned having a foreign driver's license and other documents, these don't appear...View More

Your question is way too complex for general legal advice. It's highly technical. Believe it or not, not all cities are created equal; by statute, there are distinctions based largely on size and charter. But your question alludes to the basics of state government: counties and cities are...View More
I think if something were to happen now, there's possible liability on the prison. Whether a denial of protective custody at this juncture is appropriate is very much a fact-dependent question. Prisons do not need to just place someone in protective custody just because they ask. Usually,...View More
Like I said I am not cursing out this office or threatening my voice just sounds displeased as well as it should be they are not protecting my girlfriend who had a ppo granted ex parte on my sons mother who is yet again trying to find her and harass her. So i called she hung up. I call back and she... View More
First thing: your current girlfriend has the PPO; this is her battle to wage, and she's the one - and only one - that should be calling that office. Second, with a PPO, violations should typically first be reported to the police, not victim services; what is it exactly you expect them to do...View More
I’ve been actively making my monthly child support payments and I got a lump sum va disability payment. my bank held and took funds to send to my child’s mother via child support office .Is this lawful?
On March 1 2022 Judge Finch dismissed this claim. for the past 5 months this ruling is under legal review by PUA while their collections department is now threatening wage garnishment. I have tried without success to get this matter resolved. Collections refuses to stop harassing me. Shouldn't... View More
Great question! Politicians are judged by the court of public opinion; and quite frankly, many people are not interested in the truth. And sometimes even audio and visuals can be rendered to make it seem someone is saying or doing something they are not.
The federal Confiscation Act of 1862 would apply to gold owned by the Confederate States of America (which the Act did not recognize as an entity), with the result that the United States would own the gold. This is a hypothetical question because the CSA government probably held no gold at the...View More
Are you looking to collect actual plates? You may want to check with various police departments. My understanding is that most local police have municipal plates - same plates as any other city vehicle, with an "x" in the middle. Not sure how much of a collector's item that would be.
I got a letter from the Michigan Unemployment Office saying a “question of eligibility and/or qualification has been raised on a claim in which you are an interested party”. The dates they want proof of income on range from 3/2020 all the way to 5/2021.
I had 3 pre-trial conferences with the Assistant Prosecutor and my lawyer. 3 dates were scheduled for Jury trial of which, 1 turned into another pre-trial. 2 of them were cancelled due to covid but I was still required to show up in front of the judge and it was literally just the judge calling...

I was sent a text from my public defender that my court hearing would no longer be in person, but on zoom, the time was changed to 2 hours later, and that my public defender would have another person subbing for them. They also said they would text me the zoom link prior to the newly set time. This... View More
Without knowing your case or details at all, I would assume today's hearing was a pretrial conference or status conference. Often, clients aren't really involved in those hearings unless you are ready to enter a plea. And rarely would anything significant about your case be discussed....View More
