To save money, you might be able to conduct some of your own investigations on the property. If you find that... Read more »

This question leaves much to interpretation. However, it is my belief that one born outside the USA, born to US Citizens, is eligible to become a US President.

It appears, however, that you are complaining about much more than breach of contract. Any damage that you suffered as a result of any wrongful act or negligence on the... Read more »

It operates under state rules of civil procedure, or the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure that ordinarily govern maritime cases filed in federal court. Maritime law can be the basis of the SUBSTANTIVE law issues in a... Read more »

Possibly, but not on 2nd Amendment grounds. If the gun was seized at the time of your arrest and there was no search warrant for the residence, she may be able to sue for a violation of her 4th Amendment rights. She should see a civil rights attorney to find out.
