If I join the military as a JAG, I am required to serve there for four years. In the long term, I want to be a federal judge. However, will spending four years as a JAG hurt my chances of becoming a federal judge given that I will be four years behind in regards to clerking for judges compared to... Read more »
Maybe the best person to pose your question to could be a former JAG. But your question remains open for four weeks. Given the high regard for the program because of its selection process, many would see it as a strong accomplishment. Some might see the fact that you would probably be working with...Read more »

From your location this is an Ohio question, which I am not qualified to answer. However, if this is a Pennsylvania question the answer is that if probation is revoked you can be resentenced to anything that was originally allowable. Its an important differentiation between probation and parole....Read more »

Yes, the school is within its legal rights to disseminate education to its students through online learning. Requiring students to attend school, in person, could put more students at risk than necessary, so providing online education would not violate any laws.
More specifically, a municipality. To be quite forward, under notice fairly given.
Any attempt to extract fees, or prosecute for said fees, under a non dangerous, non moving violation such as a parking ticket. The ticket would be considered a first step in legal procedure correct? And must... Read more »
I think I get the gist of your question this time. The ticket is not evidence against you it is simply notice that you have committed a violation. On that ticket is information about what you need to do to challenge that violation. The ticket does not assign a value for a penalty it merely puts...Read more »

The penalty varies from plan to plan. You can check with the plan administrator to determine exact amount. It is unlikely that the IRS is even aware of the pension plan, do very doubtful that they will be able to seize money.

They have use police to remove speakers for speaking out. I violated something for reading board minutes, a veteran was removed by police for pointing out hypocrisy.
