Q: In what states can a suicidal person be involuntarily committed, and for how long?

1 Answer | Asked in Civil Rights for North Dakota on

Treatment can be indefinite as long as the committed individual is given the right to periodic review and petition to discharge. Other rules apply.

1 Answer | Asked in Traffic Tickets for North Dakota on

Generally, contesting a traffic ticket is not a high dollar case and the cost of doing so is well worth the investment due to the realities of insurance premiums increasing after a ticket. As to your question, the officer is not under any obligation to reduce your ticket. Because of this, the fact that the...
