In 1964 my great grandmother was shot and killed by a man who was having a psychotic episode that included hallucinations. He had been released from a mental hospital just a few days before. This happened in New Hampshire. Can the hospital be held liable for prematurely releasing him?
In New Hampshire, if the judge is not a full time judge (i.e. a per diem judge), he or she may practice law and can file lawsuits on behalf of a client. The rules would require the judge not to practice in the division of the court that he or she serves in. Therefore, for example, a per diem or...View More
If the Judge is filing the civil lawsuit on his or her own behalf, these prohibitions may not apply as he or she has a right to litigate any wrongs against themselves. However, the case may get transferred to a jurisdiction where there is less of an appearance of conflict. Hope this helps.

Good question and depends on the facts. Check the Lease and look at what it states in regard to dogs.
