So if a police officer sees you next to a person, drives by, hears a gunshot, looks in rear view mirror, sees the guy on the ground. Cop turns car around, drives back, sees guy wounded and a gun next to him, the officer cannot arrest you because he first did not identify you?
My mother pays for insurance and taxes only. There is no rental agreement for my mother or my nephew. My nephew receives mail at the house, is there some implied agreement? Mom health is failing, what will it take to get him out if he refuses to go when the time comes?
This situation may be more involved than you would think. There are legal procedures in place to evict tenants, but it can be more difficult to evict squatters. You may want to get your nephew paying some nominal amount now, so he can be considered a tenant when the time comes. You should consult...Read more »
You didn't ask a question, but if you want to know what to do, the answer is to meet with an attorney knowledgeable with landlord tenant law. Most importantly, don't ignore the suit or a default judgment will likely be taken against you.
2 weeks ago my aunt called me and told me that the cop was at her house saying my dog and some other dog were wondering town and apparently bit another dog. I told my aunt there is no way it was my dog. I then asked to talk to the officer and he told me that someone needed to come get my dog... Read more »

Only giving them the bare minimal, no extras at all. no seconds, no sugars, even doing things like making them pay to do their laundry. I know they say it is to teach responsibilities but this is taking it way to far. ALSO letting other children have things in front of the ones who have to do... Read more »
The Prosecutor has up to 1 year from the date of the incident to file charges, if it's a misdemeanor such as marijuana possession. It can take several months to receive the lab test results confirming the identification of the illegal substance.

Now, I come to find out from mutual friends that since August 2018 to now that they have been telling lies and rumors about me that are not true to other mutual friends and keeping others from...

I'm not sure what you mean by a "cease and decist order." Unless you are a judge, you cannot issue a court order. Perhaps you meant to ask whether you should send a "letter" first. If so, that's usually a good idea.

A hotel may not discriminate against you on account of race, religion, national origin, etc., but may discriminate against you on account of merely not liking you or mistakenly believing you are selling drugs.
I live in a public housing authority with subsidized income based units in a high rise. The housing authority has attempted to evict me by posting a notice, but it lacks telling me what I did (no detail enough to mount a sufficient defense), and they failed to send it with certified mail. Does the... Read more »

A lot depends on where you were etc. If you had time to get out it's on her--she would see door open, feet on the ground., even before you stand up. If you were in the car and swung the door open--that's different.
See if there is a business at the point where you parked that might have a...Read more »

I want to obtain records and video from a hospital, a state counseling organization, and a state probation and parole center, this includes all records and vvideo I am involved... Read more »
You have the right to represent yourself, but unless you comply with the local court rules, rules of civil procedure, and relevant statutes, you will quickly find the experience to be a frustrating one. It might cost you more in the long run not to have hired a good attorney at the outset.
This case would go to the Supreme Court. It is newsworthy. Civil rights violations. Statues ignored. Policies and procedures not followed. False documents presented to the court. This needs to be brought to the media's attention. Background in Family Law would be a plus. It is a very long twisted... Read more »

Make sure you show up to defend the case. Confer with a attorney. I don’t know the cause of action over which you are being sued. If it’s the Merchandising Practices Act the court has discretion to award reasonable attorneys’ fees to the prevailing party. Take this seriously.
