Usually "sanctions" mean your attorney fees. So, not unless there are particularly unusual circumstances. Perhaps you should contact a local attorney to discuss your personal situation.

Q: How can you add up pain and suffering and what proof do you need to show the court?

I am being sued for $10,000. For lost wages plus pain and suffering. The plaintiff has no proof of numbers. How does one show proof?

Randy Bryan Ligh
Randy Bryan Ligh answered on Jun 16, 2021

Pain and suffering, like all elements of a claim, is shown via evidence, which comes in the form of testimony and documentation. Further, there is no calculable way to quantify pain and suffering--each case is different.

Probably not. It was not unlawful to detain you for a short while as they looked at the video and determine you were not the suspect.

If you have "signed" some kind of agreement to vacate or have been evicted after a hearing, then your case is over unless you appeal.

You committed extortion when you threatened to call the police if you were not paid. That does not change whether you have a meritorious and valuable legal claim for the wrongdoing that was being done. It just gives the "victim" of the extortion the right to file a lawsuit against you,... Read more »

You can make a "counter report" that you write yourself. The police appear to be questioning your story. Making a false police report and insurance fraud are crimes. Tread carefully.
