I am unaware of any precedent that states citizens are not required to produce identification when requested to do so. 4th...Read more »
Not sure of your problem. But you need to try to get the License at another DOS facility. Otherwise you will need a very competent, and expensive, attorney to file an administrative action. That action could take at least a year, prior to appeals. Getting a blow meter for a little while...Read more »
My son was allegedly overdosed in Henderson County TN during 2013; however, the 911 call was made in another county. Since the body was in Carroll County when EMS responded, the body was taken to Carroll County at the nearest hospital. Investigation occurring simultaneously at the alleged location... Read more »
Very sorry for your loss. However most of what I assume might be potential defendants had their liability barred by the Statute of Limitations long ago. It would probably be a GTLA, and even the savings Statute does not apply. I see no basis for claiming a tolling of the SOL. Your attorney...Read more »
Hire a competent attorney who knows what Civil Forfeiture is. You must file a cash Bond and demand a Hearing before the DOS immediately. If DOS does not get involved, then you have to sue the Seizing Agency for Conversion, but it is still a GTLA proceeding. If the property is not worth much,...Read more »
Apparently you are missing some of your facts. But it sounds like you have correctly dealt with the NCIC Check people. You need to get a copy of whatever charge or conviction is causing you a problem. It may be subject to Expungement, or it may be a conviction which does not cause a firearm...Read more »
I filled for a concealed carry permit through the state of TN. After my background check was conducted they found that I was convicted of criminal damages to property- misdemeanor when I was 17, this was 14 years ago. The state has now asked for certified court documents on the case. However the... Read more »
You will have to provide the State the requested documents. The Department of Safety issues the HCP, and if they do not want to, they don't. If denied, you can file a declaratory action in General Sessions Court very soon after the denial. Denial of a HCP does not mean you necessarily...Read more »
Without knowing more about the case hard to say why you have been served a subpoena. But, you should read the instructions on the subpoena carefully. Subpoenas are legal process that require you to attend hearings, trials, etc., and to maybe produce documents. If you are unsure of the instructions...Read more »

Absolutely. Many Law Enforcement Officers drive their own vehicles all the time, and still conduct stops and enforce laws. They may show a badge or activate their lights, or just follow you until you stop.
I would forgo approximately $800/day of earnings, which cannot be regained while serving as a juror. Since jury duty typically pays up to $50/day, this loss of income would present a hardship, especially with prolonged service.
Is it legal. My kids are disabled. They are not giving them time to come in compliance nor the opportunity to come up to code although there are other properties as bad or worse. Would this be harrassment and what can I do?
It is not harassment. But you must hire a competent attorney to file a Writ of Certiorari in Chancery Court immediately to enjoin and declare the administrative action illegal. After reading the Codes, you might complain to the City or County Codes Office, but it will be futile. You must act...Read more »
A week after closing my realtor sends me a message from the seller stating they took out the septic tank and I can’t find any documents. Is this legal? And if not how can I go about getting this corrected.
This is too complicated to answer without reviewing your contact , any disclosures and the closing documents. It may be that some misrepresentations were made during the sale, and if so, you may be entitled to rescind the contract ( give the land back and get your money back) or alternatively, you...Read more »
