Many golfers encroach on private property of homeowners imposing on their privacy and at times damaging property. How can we mitigate that? Fines? Civil Tickets? The course is owned by the City. Thank you.
If your accused of shoplifting and at the store u receive a citation telling you when to appear in court but the letter in mail is showing like you were arrested and when the arraignment is. Also its the first time you have had any legal trouble.
You have cited a stat statute that governs litigation in the state courts. The city utility is not suing you for the ancient bills you never paid; they are telling you to pay your ancient debt or go get your utilities elsewhere. Be happy they are not asking for interest on this 13 year old...Read more »
A city and county forced all timeshares closed as part of their Covid-19 response. The state did not close timeshares via their directive. Our particular timeshare has each unit/week deeded and the owners pay their share of the relevant city/county taxes. The city and county have blocked owners... Read more »
I agree with Mr. Minnick. You'd have to seek a Court ruling that the municipality's action is not legally valid, and to do that, you would need to challenge the constitutionality of the action. There are various "levels of scrutiny" that the Courts use to determine if the...Read more »
The couple is 13 years apart and the man is of illegal status. Will there be any complications in the process of trying to get married? Also let's say the girl is trying to get a legal status for her parents, will her getting married affect that as well?
The age difference shouldn't matter. The key for marriage based immigration is that the marriage has to be "bona fide", which means that the marriage cannot only be for immigration purposes. They have to want to be married to each other even if you remove immigration from the...Read more »
If it's one of the brutes, even in a deactivated state, you run the risk of liability for overweight vehicle damage, despite rubber tracks, and the potential for civil lawsuits from municipalities and utility companies for possible damage to sewage infrastructure and underground utilities. You...Read more »
I am 32 year old full-time student, and was told I had to be under 25 to receive the college student membership rate. Is that legal? I feel like I meet the criteria and have the same monetary situation as a college student, and don't think my age should be considered.
It looks like something where they could essentially do what they want in terms of their fees. Those types of discounts - college students, veterans, union members, seniors, etc. are essentially up to the entity to do as it pleases. They implement them out of kindness, good will in the community,...Read more »
sc rules state that ebikes can go on paths, but our paths are for residents getting exercise who are generally 60+, children on bikes, residents with pets, casual bicylers, etc . we want to restrict bikes to the street and not the paths. can you help?
It does not seem like something that would expressly be spelled out in any statute or code. But you should still research and check municipal codes and ordinances (including those written by FDNY) to be certain. If after diligently checking, you find no such provisions, you could consider including...Read more »
They could be charged with intimidating a witness. It’s likely the defendant would get charged as well. Police and prosecutors will assume he is orchestrating this. Visits and calls should be documented to show that isn’t the case if it isn’t.
The answer depends on many factors such as do you have any points on your license are you a US citizen or do you drive for a living if so the answer is definitely yes and hire a good lawyer. If you don't fall into any of these categories then maybe it's just worth paying it because of...Read more »
