Anthony Marvin Avery's answer You may have a Government Tort Liability Action against the City/County and the Law Enforcement Agency. Contact a competent attorney to file suit, which is not a Jury Trial. However you may not have enough damages nor evidence. You have less than 1 year to build your Case and find an attorney.
Anthony Marvin Avery's answer Usually a LEO that leaves a card for you is trying to serve you with a Civil Warrant or a Summons and Complaint. Rarely will a General Sessions Court or a Sheriff's Office tell you ahead of time they are looking to arrest you for a Criminal Charge.
Griffin Klema's answer It sounds like the fraternity is a voluntary non-profit organization. In the U.S. we enjoy what is called freedom of contract, which allows us to make agreements for all kinds of things. Sometimes agreements can't be enforced (even if you sign them). What the document is describing sounds draconian and far-reaching, and you have good reason to question it. If you want to remain a member of the fraternity, consider just signing it, notwithstanding the risks of being subject to that provision. If...
Anthony Marvin Avery's answer If he owns the House, then yes, he can run a water hose to it anytime. You may wish request a surcharge on your Rent from the Landlord, but there is little you can do outside of leaving the Leasehold. If the water use was enormous each month, then this might be considered a Constructive Eviction by the General Sessions Court, but it is doubtful.
Suing the Owners for utility expense will result in a countersuit for rentals and damages.
Anthony Marvin Avery's answer If you are the owner of the real property then you can file a Detainer Warrant at General Sessions Court. If you rent, then you may have to leave or call the Cops on the girlfriend when she gets out of line. If there are problems with your Daughter then you will need an Order of Protection against her, which should influence the Girlfriend to leave also.
Anthony Marvin Avery's answer Charges could range from Criminally Negligent Manslaughter to Second Degree Murder. Without Death the charge would probably be Reckless Endangerment or Aggravated Assault, and possibly Attempted Murder.
Leonard Robert Grefseng's answer From the very brief information supplied by this question, perhaps the daughter should file a "partition action." This is a specific type of lawsuit which in general, is used to clear up any title issues and force a sale ( auction) of the property. Consult an experienced real estate lawyer for advice on your specific situation asap.
Anthony Marvin Avery's answer Your issue is not criminal in nature. The Lender is probably suing you in General Sessions upon a Sworn Account. You must read whatever Financing Agreement you made with them, and you might offer the surrender of the Collateral to them. But that usually only accounts for part of the Debt, and they can elect to sue for money owed only. Whoever swore out the Debt could be forced to come to Court to testify about their personal knowledge, or you could make it easy on them by settling on a...
Anthony Marvin Avery's answer No that was the Sheriff attempting to unofficially give his Prisoner a break. The Prisoner is bound by the disposition on the Warrant or the Judgment of Conviction. And the new Sentence will be consecutive to it.
Leonard Robert Grefseng's answer Your question is unclear- there will be no "common law" on these issues. Any issues concerning a corporation's assumed name or reserved name are governed by the state statutes regarding corporations, and also perhaps the rules of the Secretary of States' office.
Marcus Lipham's answer What county are you in? Did your father give them permission to search the house? Sorry, but like a lot of similar situations, they require a lot of details in order to give a fair answer. The crime of “False Reports” in general is a specific intent crime, being that your father had to know he was providing false information. That can be more difficult to prove than it sounds. Personally, I would for a stronger angle of defending the case and use your father’s intent or lack there of as a...
Mr. Kent Thomas Jones Esq.'s answer I don't think that there is really a way to provide a truly accurate answer based on these facts alone. I believe that you should consult with local counsel who will know more about the situation.
Mr. Kent Thomas Jones Esq.'s answer The employer can't terminate you for simply reporting harassment, if the facts are as above-stated. The question is why did they decide to terminate you upon investigation? There may be a reason, and there may not be a reason. There is no way to know just based on this statement. I would suggest consulting with a local employment discrimination attorney.
