I'm involved in a case where a federal judge talked to plaintiff counsel in private during a hearing and never spoke to myself. I represent myself in the case.

No real answer here other than to say you really should be consulting with an attorney versed in federal court procedure, and at least consult with an attorney about helping you draft an appeal. It is unclear from your question how the judge spoke with plaintiff's counsel ex parte; it almost...Read more »
Probably a good first step would be to seek a PPO; immediate safety from stalking is paramount. Second, civil liability for the pictures will depend on the circumstances those pictures were taken. If they were taken during good times (i.e. some consent to the pictures is stated or implied),...Read more »
Generally you may record anything you can see or hear from whereever you are legally present. She if your neighbor can hear your son scream from her house, then I think she may record without your consent. Now, if she needed to place some fancy equipment (e.g. a bug) to hear, that's a...Read more »

Sounds like this young man is a CPS worker with a removal order signed by a judge. I would hope that the police verified that before assisting. Just because the order may be "old" doesn't mean it's not valid.
To answer your specific question, you likely won't have a...Read more »

An attorney with the whole picture will be able to guide you through the probate...Read more »
My son was born in California in 1998 and a court order was put in place for the father to pay each month. He rarely paid and traveled to Mexico and different states to avoid paying. He put his assests in other peoples names. I live in Michigan and they said they cannot help me because my son is... Read more »
It sounds like the attorneys are telling you the right answers, albeit bifurcated. Do you ever make the California court order a Michigan order? If not, Michigan has nothing to do with enforcement of a California court order, and so the Michigan attorneys are correct that they can't help. The...Read more »
I bid as an owner occupant, through the listing agent, on a HUD property. I chose to be the back up offer and should have had my offer accepted. I was never informed as I should have been by HUD rules. An investor's bid (lower than mine) was then immediately accepted. I only discovered... Read more »
I loaned someone $3,000 in 2017. We wrote a contract for this person to repay me within 5 years. I did not require a monthly minimum payment. I did, however, include 7.5% monthly interest (which I later found out is an illegal amount. Monthly interest must be much lower). I wrote the contract in... Read more »

While you have done an excellent job of describing the past conveyance history of this property, I would still want to review the title abstract before rendering an opinion. Stating the type of deed used for conveyance is not the same as showing how title held. Go to www.provenresource.com to...Read more »
I moved into my apartment in November 2018. As of September 2019, not one item from my move-in checklist has been addressed.

Yes, you certainly can be charged criminally for stalking public figures. It happens with movie stars as well as, apparently, local superintendents. Being a public figure does not remove all notions of privacy. Even constitutional rights have limits. You could show up at school board meetings and...Read more »

Yes, the attorney can obtain a writ of eviction. Your appeal was dismissed, and so the judgment issued in January remains valid. The original date to obtain a writ of eviction is simply a waiting period; in other words, the landlord must wait until that date to obtain a writ of eviction, but he or...Read more »
