I don't understand why I would be served this?

More information is needed to answer your question. What were you served with, an arrest warrant, a subpoena, a civil lawsuit for damages?
It was 1951 after leaving Panama. The Captain wrote a letter questioning his mental health to N.Y. before notifying the family of his disappearance. Would I have a case against U.S.S. Luckenbach steamship company?

If two consenting adults agree to engage in mutual combat under supervision of a referee in an enclosed area and all guidelines were met eg.. both parties agree, understand the engagement rules, and agree to end the fight upon a retreat or the inability to continue could legal proceedings occur?
answered on Nov 12, 2022
Yes, both parties may be charged pursuant to S.C. Code Statutes regarding assault and battery.
Only fights authorized by the SC State Athletic Commission, a division of SC Labor Licensing Regulation, are immune from application of the SC Codes punishing assault and battery.

You may have a defamation or false arrest claim. Either UHaul should not have reported that particular truck as stolen, or the police stopped the wrong truck (if there was another truck that was stolen and reported as such). Hard to tell who the actual legal claim is against, but you likely do... Read more »

answered on Sep 3, 2022
If the firearm is evidence in the case for some reason (it doesn't sound like it, but for example, someone might also be charged with unlawful carry in addition to DUI), then they'll hang on to it for at least as long as the case stays pending in court. But if not, then they should be... Read more »

Officer cannot write false statements. On the other hand this is personal to you and I would suggest that you have someone else, perhaps a lawyer you might hire, review the reports and see if his review reaches a conclusion which is the same as yours.

answered on Sep 2, 2021
IF the arresting agency alleges that the vehicle was used in the futherance of the "criminal enterprise" they can seize it.
(for example: you were stopped with the drugs in the vehicle)

It is likely that you will be able to have your case continued but I would recommend talking to some attorneys in your area. Many attorneys that practice criminal law will take a payment plan.
Could not afford an attorney. I told the truth and yet was verbally degraded by the judge while she, my ex husband and his attorney made statements that were false (with no proof) about me then punishing me for acts that I had not done. The judge was extremely unprofessional.
