Anthony M. Avery's answer Either Sister Landowner should be able to sue in Chancery for Partition, assuming they are Tenants In Common of 1/2 Undivided Interests each. Either can defend that there should be a equitable split up of the property or that there should be a sale, with the net proceeds divided. It does appear that a surveyed division with easement access could be ordered. It would be easier and cheaper to decide on a voluntary partition of the Tract with a surveyed boundary line. Then each Owner may do as...
Anthony M. Avery's answer The normal answer is no. There is an ATF Regulation that sometimes grants ownership of a specific firearm, but it is almost never granted, and never upon a violent firearm criminal conviction. A competent NRA lawyer can advise you of your weapon options.
Leonard Robert Grefseng's answer As you are now the owner, you can decide the terms under which your tenant may continue to live there. However, if he/she refuses your terms and won't sign, you will have to go through the eviction process ( give advance notice of termination, then filing a detainer warrant) to force him to leave. This assumes they won't voluntarily leave.
Leonard Robert Grefseng's answer if more than 10 days have expired since the court date, you will have to re-file the case and pay another filing fee. In other words, just start over. If less than 10 days, you could appeal the dismissal , but the costs of an appeal may be more than just re-filing. Check with the court clerk to see if they will re-set the case (but I suspect this will only work if you have a GOOD reason for missing court).
Leonard Robert Grefseng's answer I suspect not- changing the name will require filing documents to change the ownership of property, vehicles. business licenses, etc. Also, unless it is a sole proprietorship ( a single owner), changing the name will require filing documents with the Secretary of State ( for corporations and limited liability companies). In summary, those name change documents would establish that the former business that you want to sue is actually the same business as the new one , just under a different name.
Mr. Kent Thomas Jones Esq.'s answer Yes. If the Officer has reason for a search than he/she can do so. Your defense in criminal court is that the Officer did not have reason for the search. It is not altogether different that a person got a DUI after being pulled over. The question is did the Officer have reason to pull you over?
Anthony M. Avery's answer Probably not as that sounds like a Civil Judgment for Damages. Unless it involves Criminal Trespass, Vandalism or something similar with Restitution, then it is not punishable by incarceration. However the Landlord can attempt to collect on the Judgment, and you cannot ignore a Subpoena to testify as to where your assets/income are. Otherwise you will go to jail for Contempt.
Mr. James Charles Wright's answer I'm guessing you left them there- the custormer is claiming that you didn't finish the job- and that if you want the tools you can either finish the work or otherwise resolve things. You could contact the police but I am doubtful the police would get involved. After all the customer didn't go get the tools - you left them. You likely would need to bring a lawsuit to get the tools back - so it may be better (less expensive) to try to resolve matters amicably. If you can't otherwise work -...
Leonard Robert Grefseng's answer A subpoena is a court order requiring you to appear in court. The "issue" date is simply the day the subpoena was sent out by the court clerk. Somewhere on the document it tells you when and where to appear and perhaps what, if anything , you need to bring with you. Keep calling the attorney - he will know why you are being requested to come to court.
Mr. James Charles Wright's answer The below link should take you to the Tennessee Courts website. Unless the judgment set out an interest rate the rate for post-judgment interest for a Judgment in September 2012 would have been 5.25%
Leonard Robert Grefseng's answer Attorney fees are not always recoverable, either the contract /agreement between the litigants must provide for fees to be recovered, or there must be a state or federal statute that allows recovery. If neither situation exists, the general rule in Tennessee is that each party must pay their own lawyer. if you are considering asking for attorney fees, that means you must have a lawyer- consult your attorney for specific advise on this case.
Anthony M. Avery's answer You need to hire a competent attorney now. Next you need to start finding Witnesses at the scene who will give you statements and then testify. There may be cell phone pictures of the alleged Victim hanging out there voluntarily. Do not intimidate the Victim, but investigate her a little, such as did she miss any work, claim she was hurt, or even jealous of someone, etc. ? Hopefully you are at General Sessions and can put on a devastating Preliminary Hearing.
Anthony M. Avery's answer Right now it is a civil matter, and the actual facts do not matter much. She does not want anything to do with you, so do not contact her or even drive by her home. Even if she contacts you, hang up. Later on after the Restraining Order elapses due to time, only then do you let her contact you first. If you are charged with Domestic Assault, it will destroy a large part of your future life.
