The question asks essentially, "Whether sending a text message that accuses someone (falsely) of a state and/or federal crime is lawful?" Clearly, if you speak a false statement about someone to a third person(s) in manner that is called "publishing", it is actionable as... Read more »

Both. You need to get in tort claim notice within 180 days. You need a civil attorney to assist you.
She was stolen by my ex just to hurt me. She’s filed false papers claiming my cat is her “companion cat”. I have all the proof & witnesses to support the truth in this matter.

You might want to consider small claims court in light of the fact that most attorneys charge $300-$400 per hour. You cannot have an attorney in small claims court. If you obtain a judicial order for in junctive relief for the return of the cat, she would be in contempt of court if she does not... Read more »

I would check with the attorney who handled the case to see if there is a way to undo the plea. Generally, it is difficult to undo a plea once the plea deal is done.

When he replied via email he said “Could you please clarify : What is the nature of your disability? To be clear, (we) are not questioning your assertion that you are disabled... Read more »

You did not state whether or not when you asked for additional time if you gave your landlord a letter from doctor along with your request for reasonable accommodation. If you did not, you should contact your doctor for a letter to give to your landlord. If you did give a letter to your landlord,... Read more »

It is not clear exactly where things currently stand. It sounds as if she assaulted you, was charged, went to a trial in which you failed to testify to the facts and she was found not guilty. She also obtained a restraining order against you prohibiting you from having contact with her or your... Read more »

I am not clear what you mean by having an "eviction notice" to be out on the 12th. Have you already gone to court and lost, with this Notice being from the court? Or is this the date on the termination of tenancy notice from your landlord? Most courts will not accept filings by fax... Read more »

First, you should fully document the landlord's actions - dates, times, witnesses, what was said, etc. You may well have claims against the landlord for the unlawful entries and/or the WiFi. Beyond that, no, neither text nor email messages are valid forms of issuing a termination of tenancy... Read more »
I have filed many objections and the objections are ignored. The opposing attorney has pushed this false assertion of me being a public figure, all the way up through the appellate courts. Therefore this entire case is being handled as if I'm a public figure, when I am not a public figure. He... Read more »

An Oregon attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. You did not ask a question, but from your post it looks like you brought a defamation action against someone for something they said about you. I think that your adversary is arguing that you are a public figure in... Read more »

It will depend on specifics but you could have a number of different claims against the different parties you refer to.

I can't speak to the exact procedure in Oregon, but it's probably done by bringing an adversary proceeding to have the debt determined to be nondischargeable. You'll need an attorney for this.

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.

Hard to follow exactly what happened. If he assaulted you, you can sue for battery. If you were an employee, you can sue for the back wages and a penalty wage. If you were an independent contractor, you can sue for breach of contract.
Who can help me find out what he wrote?

This isn't a legal question and we don't have a way to search for anyone on Justia much less someone without a name. But I am going to suggest that you read up on what libel and slander is and ISN'T. Just because someone says something about you that you don't like... Read more »

Yes, you can. However, winning defamation cases is difficult, as opinion and the truth are defenses. Plus, it is hard to prove the damages, as in how much would you be owed. Lastly, collecting any money from a judgment can be difficult, unless the person has money or assets.
I was in a convenience store at the airport after my shift and we were swapping gossip and rumors about the store being for sale and the company I work for is interested in buying it.

If they want to they could. Not sure why this is tagged with criminal law and slander, as you indicate no crime was committed and unless they alter the video the video shows what it shows so t here could be no libel/slander.
