My husband and I checked in on 8/30/2018. We have been here continuously, since. I have receipts to prove this. With that TCA, does the police not have to enforce the law as stated, even though it is civil? This hotel also turned our power off, and I know this is illegal as well, so I flagged a... Read more »
You are incorrect. The Police enforce criminal law violations. It is up to the citizen or the civil authorities to enforce common law, statutes and equitable principles in the Courts of our State. You may have a cause of action to sue for damages or to enjoin what you believe are illegal...Read more »
The Bank will take subject to your status as a renter. But it is very easy to declare you in default and file a Detainer Warrant on you. You get served then go to Court. If not out after 10 days , the Bank will get a Writ of Possession issued and executed by the Sheriff. The Bank is the owner...Read more »

You have not stated if a Charge was made. If not, forget about it, but do not conduct illegal activities. If a Charge was made then hire a competent attorney to represent you at hopefully only General Sessions, but possibly Circuit Court. At Circuit you can file your Motion to
Generally speaking, a police office has to have probable cause to search and arrest you. This is a low standard. However, if you appeared to be on drugs, then it may have been public inoxication. I would suggest that you obtain a crimainal defense attorney as soon as possible.

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.
The state of TN has adopted a policy of “rolling” enforcement facilities to combat distracted driving. Can they legally look inside your vehicle, even if it is just from the outside, if you have not committed a crime and there is no probable cause to believe you have committed a crime? Is...

She has Excema, and an officer suggested she go into a rehab facility based on her skin condition that day. No prior arrests, and she isn’t an addict. Was only charged with misdemeanor possession bc it was at her friends that she lives with. This is unfair and unconstitutional.
If the charge for misdemeanor possession sticks, then a judge could easily order that she report to a rehab facility. The decision would be made on the charge and conviction and not necessarily on her looks. If she has no priors, then it would be in her best interests to obtain a criminal defense...Read more »

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.
But they still arrested him because he would not talk. What do i do to get him out of the situation or can he get the charges dropped since i didn’t write a report ? They are charging him with domestic assault
He should not plead guilty to Domestic Assault under any circumstances. He needs a competent attorney now. Do not let the DA coerce you into testifying to facts that did not occur. This is a public forum and it is not appropriate to tell you everything.
He was also being investigated for body found in van 41 daus before he assaulted me i was bleeding from handcuffs he wouldnt call ambulance or lutinant when i requested he entered my house without warrant iab would not take my report initially i filed a police report dor assault to prosecute but he...

The tow company wants $1,400 for the charges towing and storage. They are not willing to come down on the price to release... Read more »
There is probably nothing illegal about the "type of tow."
Now, if the towing company did something like misreport the license plate number so that the police weren't immediately notified that a stolen car had been recovered, you may be able to get out of some of the fees. You probably want...Read more »

Something doesn't sound quite right. But in any event if you were sued, then you should have been served with process (legal papers from the court). If you were not served, then you may have options. But vacating a judgment, especially from 2009, is not an easy task. The creditor may have also...Read more »
