Shanone Emmack answered on Jul 13, 2020

Yes, an out of state warrant will get you arrested in another state. It usually happens when a police officer calls in your information during a traffic stop. The police will arrest you and wait for the state who issued the warrant to come get you.

The reason this free legal advice forum was created is to allow people who have legitimate legal questions to ask the Justia panel of experienced lawyers, who decide whether or not to answer.

So it seems safe to say that curious college students who want to "chat" with...

Q: Is a neighbor’s man-made lake allowed to drain on my property? He is at a higher elevation. Tipton County, TN

The lake was built a long time ago before my house was built. When we moved in three years ago, the water was not draining onto our land. Within the last two months, it looks like a river rushing down the side of our property. They refuse to fix their overflow drainage pipe that used to divert... Read more »

Most likely you have no legal recourse. Unless the overflow pipe was recently damaged and now is destroying your property, I see no cause of action. You might file for an Injunction in Chancery because of the continuing Property Tort. But if it is not causing a massive loss of dirt from the... Read more »

Q: I was let go today and sold a service that was complete, but not paid for yet. Am I still eligible for the commission?

We aren't paid out our commissions until the client pays. I was not terminated for poor job performance, and I completed most of this particular job myself before I was terminated.

Paul E. Tennison answered on Jul 10, 2019

With no contract, you should likely not have liability as long as you were unaware of any issues about the horses health at the time you agreed to the trade. If you did not guarantee or warranty the health of the horse, then I do not think the other party has much of a case here. If you are sued... Read more »
