A starting point could be to search for the case online. Cases SOMETIMES have summaries, if they are noteworthy. As a sidenote, don't submit any papers to your instructor as "moke" trial - you want to write "mock trial." Good luck
Where i live the water people are stopping me from getting water because the people that live behind me was stealing water a few years ago but that has nothing to do with me because i just moved here two years ago so i really need help with this
A Louisiana attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. It might depend what the issue is - well water, water through a public utility, easement, etc. If the matter involves a public utility water company, the most inexpensive option might be to start with them. Good...View More
I’ve never been married and I’ve been in a 4 year off and on relationship and have somewhat of a love triangle. I’m trying to find the best solution. Would it be legal if I marry them both at the same time?
State trooper cited me for unlawful towing & the driver that hit me was cited for carless operation. No injuries for anyone involved. Court date is March 22 in St. Charles Parish. Accident occurred on I-10 east bound in Louisiana.
New Hampshire it is against the law to collect biometric data for licensing. Missouri has a similar law that expires this year. Louisiana and Oklahoma are not that clear. I'm looking for a reason why these two states have declined to use the technology when most of the states have received... View More
A Louisiana attorney could answer best, but your question remains open for a week. This is a complex subject, with many aspects, including access to data, security of data, uses of data, etc. The short answer nationwide is protection of privacy. Good luck
Something this serious should not be done without representation and as such, I recommend that the first thing you do is consult with a few family law attorneys to discuss this and then decide how to best proceed.
I put a missing person out for my son and when he was located the investigator said he has to turn him over to sheriff's office for a warrant that wasn't in the system from almost a year ago. Altercation with his dad but dad didn't press charges. Now is in jail with no court or... View More
Not enough information is provided here, however the charge can be probated, it is is punishable with incarceration and as such, I would recommend that the defendant hire a criminal defense lawyer to begin preparing a defense of the matter in hope of achieving the best outcome.
If you go to trial and the prosecution does not prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt or if before trial the prosecution is convinced that it cannot prove its case, then yes you might get the reckless op dismissed. On the other hand, if you are going 30 mph over the speed limit, then many times...View More
On its face the answer to your question is that it is not illegal. That said, the voting process is very possibly described and detailed in your HOA's governing documents and you should review them and see what they say---or hire an attorney to see what they say and whether or not it is...View More
More information is needed to answer this question but just guessing I would advise that if you want something between 2 parties to possibly be enforceable as to the 3rd parties then yes, it would have to be recorded in the public record----but having stated this, one would still need additional...View More
I co-signed for my son a car at the price of $12,400. The car was purchased January 2020 with $1000 down toward it, notes are $410.64 but he still has four more years of payments. This is truly unjustified, unfair and ridiculous. I need guidance on what to do and who to contact to help.
Yes, it is most likely unfair and ridiculous however you and your son sign the agreement-----and you are going to have to explain why it was not voluntary. Try the Consumer Protection Division of the LA Attorney General's office and see if it can provide you some assistance. At this point...View More
but the police took his side and threatened to arrest me if I called them again. I was also told as long as he received mail here, he was a resident. I was told my landlord could have him evicted. He tried but we both got the runaround and Covid-19 restrictions came into place by time we finally... View More
Yes, your landlord can move to evict him only. If your landlord is willing to help, have them meet with a real estate attorney to make sure they are following proper eviction procedure, otherwise your boyfriend could have a potential wrongful eviction suit.
In order to really answer this question, one should review what is actually owned by you and by her and what, if any, restrictions exist as to selling the property. Once that is done, then one needs to determine what effect, if any, goes to any verbal agreements made between the two of you as to...View More
You post does make sense but from it, I understand that you have some pending criminal charges-----and although they are most likely misdemeanors, you should still contest them if you have legal defenses and/or think that the prosecution will not be able to provide its case-----you best bet to...View More
Sometimes. The average rate for most misdemeanors is probably around $1,500---$2,000 depending on the charge. True, if you call around you might be able to find an attorney who will charge less than $1,500--$2,000 depending on the circumstances, but there are also attorneys who will charge more....View More
