In state circuit court a clerk refused to file my complaint with IFP in violation of statute and case law. That resulted in my case being dismissed. If I file a fed complaint, will I have to ask for monetary compensation for damages? Or can I ask for just a ruling on whether the clerk violated my... View More
Kentucky? This is where i have lived for the past 4 months and have claimed permanent residence here. Just need some advice on my next steps. My name and new address is on the papers he served to ex-wife.
n Kentucky, if you've established permanent residence there for the past four months and your new address is included on the papers served to your ex-wife, it's possible that the service of legal documents might be considered valid. This could be due to substitute service, where documents...View More
When he hit it he diddnt stop at first and the goal was hooked to his van and when he dragged it he also hit our mailbox with it but now he is saying it's our fault for the goal being that close to road and he isn't paying for it
A Kentucky attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. It sounds like you are talking about the legal defense known as "assumption of risk." It depends on the particular circumstances. On cases where the defense is raised, the conditions can be fact-specific. Good luck
On 12/27/21 I sent an administrative appeal with an in forma pauperis (IFP) to the Franklin Circuit Court. The filing deadline was 1/10/22. The clerk received and signed for the filing on 1/3/22. Per CR. 5.05 any filing accompanied by an IFP is to be considered filed when it received by the clerk.... View More
You might want to consider asking the Franklin circuit court to reinstate the case given the facts above. It seems clear your appeal would have been timely filed but for the clerical delay. The tiles provide for the court to consider such requests and act on them.
On appeal from the Laurel District Court my friend's lawyer erroneously filed a writ of mandamus under the circuit appeal case no. The circuit court remanded it back to district which affirmed its first order. He filed another notice and statement of appeal, but it has not been given a case... View More

There may be a problem for him in that if he sold the restaurant, there should be maybe money left over or money to be accounted for. There is also a requirement to keep records.

This would include my biweekly paychecks, current bank account, car insurance, and vehicle. I have not been sued yet, but anticipate it happening in the next 3 years. Would it be legal for me to transfer all these assets, to get them out of my name, prior to any lawsuit being filed?
This sounds like fraudulent conveyances. I believe you can be sued for doing this with the knowledge that you are likely to be sued. I would consult an attorney who can analyze all the facts of your particular situation.
I am an heir to property in Whitley County that was behind on taxes. A company bought the tax cert but did not notify us per KRS § 134.490 nor before bringing suit, 490 (1) and (2). They went straight to circuit court. I filed for dismissal for lack of jurisdiction because the plaintiff failed to... View More

No that’s not true at all .The nursing home representative... View More
