Q: Hello, I am wanting to host a boxing event at my house and charge for admission, how can I do this and have it be legal?

Ronald J. Eisenberg answered on Apr 14, 2019

Bad idea on many grounds. First, I doubt the match would be commissioned through the state. Second, you would incur liability risks. Third, it might be unlawful under your city's laws. Fourth, it might violate your HOA declaration or rules and regulations, if applicable.

As you know, there's no easy answer to your situation. You haven't asked a specific question, however. Casenet is supposed to accurately reflect the names of the parties as they are identified when the case is filed. I'm not sure what you specifically want done, and by whom. I don't blame you,...

If you are not able to find laws in your ordinary searches under civil, traffic, recreational, and other laws, you could check with your elected officials on the city council, assembly, and other local, city, and state government bodies. One of the problems with skateboarding is that many places... 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.

Q: Are there any Lawyers interested in a case that just has to be presented? Two years researched. ProBono. Mid Missouri

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 »

Q: In Case 001-3912, I signed a written waiver of counsel form mandated by Mo.Rev.Stat. Section 600.051. However, Case

001-3912 was dismissed by nolle prosequi. Could the form I'd signed in Case 001-3912 constitute compliance with Section 600.051 for my subsequent Case 011-2189 and relieve the trial court from obtaining a new form pertinent to the new case?

Kevin Webb
Kevin Webb answered on Nov 23, 2017

Each case is its own case. Each case requires going through the same steps over and over again. The fact that you are asking this question suggests that you might not want to sign the form this time.

I doubt that the court will rely on a waiver in a different case for this case. That...

It depends upon the facts, none of which you gave. Basically, a person convicted of a felony does not have the same rights.

Q: Is it a hate crime if I have an ANTI union bumper Sticker on my car and it keeps getting vandalized by union thugs?
Robert Jason De Groot
Robert Jason De Groot answered on Oct 17, 2015

Common sense goes a long way. Are you intentionally inviting the crime? Criminal mischief is the crime, probably. What big difference does it make if it is also a hate crime, which I do not believe it would fall under, without reading the specific statute.

It depends upon the facts, and you gave none. This is new technology which would be used for identification purposes, just as fingerprint analysis can be done. But you will not win stating just that it is against your beliefs. There would have to be probable cause for a stop, and that might be what... Read more »
