Denise Martinez-Scanziani's answer You have to make this request in writing to the judge. Depending on the basis for your request, the court may order a drug test which can be done by either a urine sample or a hair follicle drug test. the hair follicle drug test will detect drug use for a much longer period of time than the urine test.
Leonard Robert Grefseng's answer Call the local police/detectives office- get the documents together and explain the whole history to them. If the other person has committed identity theft, the police will instruct you on how to prosecute them.
Anthony Marvin Avery's answer A lawyer would not help you anyway. You might complain to the Sheriff's Office but most LEO's are going to ignore you. The same goes with the DA's and Magistrates. I would recommend you get over it, as there is no way the neighbor will be prosecuted.
D. Michael Burke Esq's answer I do not believe that you can sue Sedgewick for anything. Your remedy was to appeal the decision in your Workers' Compensation claim. If you did not have an attorney in your Workers' Comp claim, you should have. He could have obtained a report from your doctor, and cross-examined the "independent" doctor, who probably does a lot of work for Sedgewick. Call a local Workers' Comp attorney to see if you can reopen your W/C claim. Good luck.
Peter N. Munsing's answer Don't see any harm from either except to you. But not reporting a wreck even if another vehicle was not involved can be serious depending on your state's laws, so look at the sections and see--if serious, then contact a lawyer that handles tickets in that county/city to represent you. Maybe they can get it bargained down to something like a no point equipment violation.
Timur Akpinar's answer As a general matter, a person could sue for virtually any reasonably alleged form of damages, but one must consider how much such a case would cost to prosecute, what would be its prospects for a successful outcome, and how would damages be determined. If you are contemplating legal action, it would be advisable to consult with a California attorney and discuss the viability, cost effectiveness, and scope of damages in such a lawsuit.
Arthur Calderon's answer Cyberstalking if a very tricky subject, and very fact intensive. Your best bet is going to be to contact a criminal defense attorney to go through the facts of your case and see what defenses that you may have available.
Gregory L Abbott's answer It is unclear whether this is still in an informal state of resolution or if you are being sued in court. Either way, you likely do indeed need the aid of a landlord-tenant attorney. Simply make an appointment to review everything with a local one and see where you go from there.
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer It depends. If the suit is filed in Florida, the lawyer must be admitted to practice law in Florida. If it's filed in your home state, the lawyer would have to be admitted to practice in your home state.
It's not clear which possible suit you are asking about: the breach of contract or the defamation. Of course one could be a counter-claim to the other.
Peter N. Munsing's answer I'm sorry to hear that you had to go through this. You have a case but.....the problem is that homeowners won't cover intentional acts, and if there is no insurance unless he's worth a lot of money you will get a piece of paper saying you are entitled to money--but he won't be able to pay it. The only plus is that as intentional acts they aren't dischargeable in bankruptcy.
I know that's not at all "justice" but it's like being mugged by a wino--you have a case but after spending...
