Peter N. Munsing's answer Ask to meet with the shelter manager and find out why. If they don't satisfy you ask the police if you can file a complaint with them for not giving you your property. Maybe call the state ASPCA first to get an idea of the law regarding shelters.
Cary B. Hall's answer Go tell it to the judge, esp. if you weren't driving. But the way the cop can prove that you were driving is that he/she can *ask* you -- under oath -- in front of the magisterial district judge. I suppose you can "plead the 5th" and refuse to testify, and the judge may then toss the citation out for lack of evidence.
Cary B. Hall's answer The problem may be your "assumptions." I suggest contacting the Delaware County Bar Association for an attorney referral, and then sit down with him/her and going over everything. Knowledge is power, y'know?
Timur Akpinar's answer I do not practice in Pennsylvania, but your question has not been picked up in four weeks. You could consult with a Pennsylvania attorney who could ask you about the type of damages you might be seeking, for instance, if there was injury in the form of dental damage, or other forms of injury. An attorney could advise you of the timeframes and statutes of limitations within which you would need to act to preserve your legal rights if you were contemplating legal action.
Cary B. Hall's answer Try contacting your local Pennsylvania State Police barracks with your questions. They deal with and enforce most of the firearms laws in the Commonwealth. Better safe than sorry, right?
Cary B. Hall's answer Law reviews -- periodicals published by law school that contain scholarly articles, casenotes, etc. on legal topics -- can be found in a law library. Many can also be found online as well, and here's a good starting place: https://lawreviewcommons.com/.
Cary B. Hall's answer If you get a civil monetary judgment in Pennsylvania against the roofer, you will need to file a certified copy of the judgment with the State of New Jersey. Once accomplished (and you will need to consult New Jersey law about how to do this properly), you would then be able to begin enforcement proceedings in New Jersey against the roofer's property there.
Cary B. Hall's answer Call the Prothonotary of your county's Court of Common Pleas and ask them where the case is procedurally. Every county does it a little bit differently, so go straight to the source and find out.
Peter N. Munsing's answer Generally no. You need to get a copy of whatever order the bank was served with. Chances are there is a court that they went to to get a default notice. You need to get those records as well. Only then can an attorney help you unravel this. If you get ALL the documents, then contact a consumer attorney. But they need to know the court docket, filings etc.
Early in the filings should be a sheriffs return of service (unless Philadelphia). That would say how it was supposedly served on...
Thomas A. Grossman's answer I am not a Bankruptcy Lawyer, and what you describe going on does not sound like it has to do with Bankruptcy. It sounds like you have a real estate problem, and the other side has asked for Arbitration. It appears that you are in Philadelphia, while I am in California. So, the law is different for each state. I also don't know what "paperwork" you received. It sounds more like a foreclosure proceeding that is going on. At any rate, I suggest you contact a lawyer near you ASAP to prevent...
Cary B. Hall's answer You can take anyone you want to court. Will you succeed? No way to know from the limited description of your situation. If you agreed to pay the costs charged, but changed your mind after you got your car back, then you probably have no case. A bag of chips may cost $1.00 normally, but if someone wants to charge me $1,000.00 for that same bag, and I voluntarily choose to pay it, then I can't very well complain about it the next day. Didn't the mechanic present you with the costs of the...
Timothy Denison's answer It is probably legal, yes. You need to have a local lawyer look into this for you, but even though you returned the car, you are still liable for the deficiency balance owed after the car is sold and the proceeds applied. You might look into whether the car was sold for more or less than the statutory balance required at a sale. If it was sold for less, you might be able to attack the sale and Forde them to resolve it.
