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 Marvin 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 Marvin 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 Marvin 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.
Mr. James Charles Wright's answer Lease renewals are controlled by the terms of the lease. If the renewal does not restrict the landlord then the landlord would have the right to non-renew the lease for any or no reason. Review your lease terms relating to renewal- your answer will be there.
Marjorie A Bristol's answer You should consult an attorney to discuss your options. Many will offer a free consultation. You shouldn't stay in a marriage with an ass. You have options. They may not be easy options, but you have options.
Leonard Robert Grefseng's answer Sorry, but your question is unclear. If you believe the trustee is acting inappropriately, review the trust agreement carefully to determine if the trustee is given authority to act in the manner you have described. If not, I would notify the trustee in writing of your concerns and ask for a written explanation. If that is unsatisfactory, you will have to file a lawsuit against the trustee asking the Court to remove him/her form the position and to make the trustee repay the value of the...
