Q: Someone employed by the same company as me just kicked my dog. Is there anything I can do to said person?

1 Answer | Asked in Animal / Dog Law for North Dakota on
Answered on Nov 5, 2017

If they kicked your dog for absolutely no reason, report it to police. If they kicked your dog because your dog was threatening them, let it go. Whether you're allowed to bring your dog to work depends on your work's policies. I know very few workplaces that are welcoming to dogs. Hope that helps!

Q: Can a 13 yr old that is accusing a male age 26 yr old of rape leave the state while involved in a open case?

1 Answer | Asked in Criminal Law for North Dakota on
Answered on Oct 16, 2017

The thirteen year-old victim/witness should certainly appear for all court proceedings and may consider retaining an attorney if the prosecutor is not properly advocating for the victim. With that being said, there is nothing per se that would prohibit a victim from leaving the state unless a court order is in place. However, the victim should not leave the state in order to avoid questioning by the court. It sounds like this situation is complex. Therefore, you should not rely on this...
