I spoke to a few attorneys who told me that the law protects drs during this period due to COVID 19 to an extent anyway, however I am curious if they are protected against discriminating against their patients also? I was very clearly neglected and discriminated against but I can not get anyone to... Read more »
Not sure you have a discrimination case so much as you might have a malpractice case. Your question does not make clear how you believe you were discriminated against; it sounds like the ER doctors made a medical decision. Whether opting not to perform surgery was the right call is something only...Read more »
Told drunk to leave my door several times, he refused, it got physical, he kicked my storm door in. I was charged with assault, while in my home, a month later. He was arrested for dui and trespassing that night. Local prosecutor is trying to silence me. I had been disagreeing with her prosecution... Read more »
Do you have an attorney? I probably don't need to tell you that you're not going to get very far with the approach you are taking. Focus on your case and your set of facts; It will get you nowhere talking about what the prosecutor could've, would've, should've with other...Read more »
A supervisor at my old job is accusing me of committing a crime of vandalism on his vehicle, there is no evidence against me but I have messages of him calling me a criminal saying and also telling people it was me who committed the crime of a vandalism act to his vehicle , he even reported my name...

You probably could take him to court, but unless you have provable damages, I don't know what good it will do. Defamation and any civil claim is different and carries a different burden of proof than a criminal case.
My old job is trying to say I committed a vandalism act against a car in their parking lot, no evidence against me or no proof of me being there just going by hearsay and blaming me for it , can I sue ?
I received a civil infraction bt the DNR (Department of Natural Resources) in a state park. The Civil infraction is R299.922(q). I am trying to understand the penalties that come with this CI as the ranger said it was just a fine but I want to make sure it doesn't show up on my driving record... Read more »
A Michigan attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for a month. As a general matter, each state might operate differently in terms of what their Departments of Natural Resources (or Environmental Protection, Wildlife, Fisheries, etc.) share with their Departments of Motor Vehicles....Read more »
You would need to apply here in the court you were convicted in. That will restore your gun rights while you are in Michigan. However, if you want to purchase firearms from a dealer with a federal firearms license - including Cabelas, etc., - you will need to complete a similar process in NY, NJ,...Read more »
I am not sure if i should get in contact with a lawyer about this issue due to not knowing if legal compensation is possible but i want to exhaust all my options. in short I have an account with the company Activison-blizzard (the people behind games like Call of Duty) this account was compromised...

What damages have you suffered? Has someone used this data against you? Has someone stolen money? Without actual damages, it's going to be tough finding a lawyer to do much more. I'm not sure how you'd be able to show them being complicit in data theft, let alone fraud, if the breach...Read more »
What is the question? If your daughter is alleging police misconduct, a report should be made to the arresting police agency, or if occurring while within jail, to the sheriff's department that runs that particular jail.
I’m being approached by messengers telling me that this male plans to never stop plus he hates me. He lies to justify his actions by telling others that I broke into his home 2019 and I robbed him at gun point 2020. This started after my rejecting all of his advances to spend time with me away...

LLC is suing a Member by another Member who has equal share. The defending Member is not representing LLC. Does Member being sued have to represented by counsel. If so, why, if the Member is not defending the LLC
The general rule in most states is that business entities, such as LLCs, must be represented by a licensed attorney in court. Individuals generally may appear pro se, meaning that they may represent themselves, in court proceedings and lawsuits.
I don't think you have a valid claim to sue the state for sending you to prison on an adult conviction. Many people under 18 are incarcerated in prisons in Michigan as well as just about every other state.
It, now as of this day sept 24th 2020 i found this out, now they are telling me call tomorrow business hours, public safety dept told me they will get the officers that pulled me over to call me, keep my phone close.
I understand we are in a pandemic, my son has a fairly severe mental handicap, I feel it should be illegal to force me to attempt to homeschool him against my will and without compensation especially when I have absolutely no skill/ability in doing so.
Interesting take. While understandably a hardship, I don't think "forced servitude" covers taking care of your own children. Interestingly, there is no constitutional right to public schools as we know them; if they ceased to exist, all parents would be "forced" into servitude.
I moved my family into a new house in Quincy, Michigan. A day after moving in, our water stops working. It turns out the well is dry, and the whole area is just bad for water. We spoke with multiple well contractors and learned that we can install a good well about 100 yards from the house at the... Read more »
Without seeing the closing paperwork and disclosures it is hard to say for sure. You need to have a local attorney look at the paperwork (did you use an attorney to review the closing? You SHOULD have!) to determine if anything like this can survive the closing.
Interesting scenario...I'm not sure how such a suit would play out. Generally, claims of religious discrimination requires you to substantiate that what you are saying is an established component of your religion, and that you are a devoted member of that faith group. That is commonly done in...Read more »
I created a support protest for Black Lives Matter and found out through a friend that the police had checked into my background and my friends too (she's a minor and the co-host for the event). Neither of us is under a current investigation that we know of and haven't had the protest yet.
Do you mean through accessing their information / investigation networks? No. The police can investigate anyone at anytime, and can access and act on publicly disclosed information (e.g. Facebook). Certainly as the subject of an investigation, you have rights, most importantly the right to remain...Read more »
I was charged (but not convicted) with Minor in Possession of Liquor when I was 16. The case was dismissed. I was told the record would be expunged when I turned 18. I am now 23 and this incident is still showing up on my driving record (Why my driving record??).
Lots of questions here...who told you it would be expunged when you turned 18? And even if true, court records (which a judge would have the power to expunge) are different than the Secretary of State's records (which judges have no authority over).
What do you mean by not having a right to a speedy trial? Delays in getting to trial can be attributed to the prosecution OR the defense, and unless you happened to be a MDOC prisoner at the time, there is no absolute right to have a trial within a certain period of time. What speedy trial does in...Read more »

In late June, 2020, the U.S. Supreme Court affirmed a decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit (which covers Michigan), holding generally that discrimination (and by extension harassment) against transgender individuals because of their status or gender nonconformity is...Read more »
We have resided together for 20 years (last 10 in MI where the house is). We own it jointly. I have made all the payments and have proof. If I move out, and continue maintaining the home and paying the mortgage, can the other person gain financially when we finally sell due to my not residing in... Read more »
