Terrence H Thorgaard's answer Apparently you failed to raise the statute of limitations when you were sued. The debt can probably be discharged in bankruptcy. It is doubtful that there is any other way to "get rid of this".
Cary B. Hall's answer Just look for someone who handles civil litigation. You'll have 30 days from the date of the magistrate's judgment to file an appeal to the Court of Common Pleas in your county (likely Wyoming County). Your local bar association may be able to point you to someone as well.
Timur Akpinar's answer It's a complex problem and some of the causes are stricter sentencing guidelines and budget cuts. In addition to conducting your traditional book and online research, you could contact people in the corrections industry.

Matthew Williams' answer 1. Your attorney cannot "press charges" but the prosecuting attorney can based upon information provided by your attorney. 2. It is inappropriate for your attorney to remain your attorney, after reporting you to the police for trespassing. 3. If you have information regarding a murder, you need to take it to the police.
Arthur Calderon's answer With this being regular robbery (without a deadly weapon), the max time that you are looking at is 15 years in MDOC custody. The bad thing, though, is that robbery, even without a deadly weapon, is considered a violent crime, which means that whatever sentence you get would be a day-for-day sentence (not eligible for any sort of early release). Your best bet is going to be to get with an attorney ASAP to discuss the facts and circumstances of the case, what defenses you may have, etc....
Ali Shahrestani, Esq.'s answer All named parties in a legal action need to be served with all filings. Rather than proceed pro se, why not consider limited scope representation as an affordable option. More details are necessary to provide a professional analysis of your issue.

Ali Shahrestani, Esq.'s answer You may need to immediately file an administrative grievance with the school for the appropriate tuition adjustment. Note that the statute of limitations for complaints against public entities is very short, so time is of the essence. See: http://www.courts.ca.gov/9618.htm

Timur Akpinar's answer I'm sorry for the loss of your brother. Consult with a California attorney; you should be able to locate one who gives free consultations. Based on the limited facts, it's difficult to say whether the actions (or omissions of actions) on the part of the hospital/other medical providers were responsible here. But an experienced attorney who reviews the medical records should be able to make a more meaningful assessment of the situation.
Timur Akpinar's answer If done intentionally it could be, but in some settings where there is overgrown grass, the operators of backhoes or maintenance vehicles might not be aware they are passing over a stone.
I believe no court would award possession of the dog to this girl. She gave you the dog, and you've done everything to care for it. Unless the girl has some sort of writing that specifies that she never intended to relinquish ownership of the dog to you, it's yours.
I think you can be pretty confident in telling her to pound sand, her grief notwithstanding. Best of luck to you.
Joseph Kelly Levasseur's answer Public guardian for what reason and who appointed her? If the person is court appointed then you would petition the court to request that the guardianship be terminated. Good luck!
Mark Oakley's answer You clearly advise all passengers before recording them that you record them on video and audio while in your car. If they get in and ride with you after that notice, they have consented and it is legal. You cannot record audio in Maryland without the knowing consent of the other person. It is a crime otherwise.
