Q: 

Accident not my fault--Q

A:  Parking lots are private property. In most cases, the police have very little authority on private property. The solution for you, if you believe you''ve been aggrieved, is in a civil suit. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk The parking lot was where I worked at if that makes any kind of difference. Thanks for reply. A couple of things to keep in mind .... Insurance companies are not obligated to rely on the police report. In fact, most do not. Also, police reports are generally little more than a collection of driver and vehicle information, the initial statements of the parties, and (maybe) an opinion as to the cause of the collision. You are free to dispute any assignment of fault with your insurance company. Also, the police...

Q: 

School and missing child

A:  I'm not attorney, but I don't believe they are responsible for picking up your daughter at the classroom door, escorting her to the bus, and forcing her to get on.  I seriously doubt a HS is responsible for holding a student's hand and putting them on the bus.   "My question is....where is the schools accountabiliy in this?" I don't think the school has any accountability here.  Were the child 5 years old, then probably yes.  HS student, no way are they going to take responsibility for putting her on the bus.  Who's to say that she didn't get on the bus and get off at the first stop? Hopefully she will return home safely. Good luck     Some years back I was impaneled as a juror in a

Q: 

need help and information?

A:  Sounds like you are a union employee so my answer will be based upon that assumption. Obviously I am answering somewhat in the blind since I can not view your union book at present. Anyway, your union handbook should provide you with the procedure you are to use to file an appeal to the grievances that you wrote about. There are strict time deadlines in which to file such appeals with your union steward, so don''t delay. If the appeals are denied, your handbook should inform you that you have the right to go through arbitration at this point. Now if you get to this point, and your union informs you that they do not intend to arbitrate the matter, then you are free to bring a civil law suit against the union and or...

Q: 

How do I notify a good tenant that I will be losing a home they are renting due to filing personal bankruptcy?

A:  Mike, Aside from doing the right legal things, ... my advice is to do what''s morally right and notify your tenants right away either via postal mail or by phone or both ways. Be honest with them as I''m sure they know that the market is not at its best. They will appreciate you. Just think about it.... if it were a different situation where they bought a house elsewhere and move out without giving you a 30 days notice, how would you feel? At least they signed a lease agreement with you about the 30 days notice, but they have nothing on you on the agreement stating you would give THEM a 30 days notice should you lose your house. But doing what''s morally right is greater than any contract under the sun ;-) This too...

Q: 

Guilty in Criminal court, Guilty in civil?

A:  Sorry, you lose again. By pleading guilty in the criminal case you just made the civil case against you a winner for the other side. You cant argue in the civil case that you are not liable because you already admitted to the battery in the criminal case. Remember O.J., innocent in criminal court, guilty in civil. Thanks for the info guys. I have one last Q: Even if I never went to trial, none of the evidence was heard, and the evidence WOULD have shown my innocence had it been heard, I still couldn''t avoid being sued? I would have won... did''t want to sit in jail any longer. And anybody who''s from Chicago will understand why. does not matter. once you pled guilty the game is over. you...

Q: 

My Neighbor has an Ingress-Egress Easement on my Property, Can I Have Her Sign a Liability Waiver?

A:  “My neighbor has an ingress and egress easement through my property. Can I have the neighbor sign a liability waiver? The reason being is that I have livestock (Goats and Llamas) and she wants to use the easement with her small children who are 4 and 8 years old. I’m concerned that if they don’t shut the gate properly and the goats get out in which they could cause a car accident or I get a ticket from the city. I’m also concerned that male goats can get randy or territorial in which they may injure someone in the party. Would it be possible to have waiver written up to protect myself in California?” Can you HAVE your neighbor sign a waiver? Sure. Can you FORCE her to do so? Probably not. I’m assuming that the easement is not positioned such that you...

Q: 

After i get out of the navy can i be a detective?

A:  Master at Arms has nothing to do with civilian policing. won''t even get you out of a day in a police academy. Having an honorable can get you, in some states, a couple of points extra on an entrance exam, that is about it. Face up to it, you gotta be a cop first, and a very good one at that. If you have an uncle who has been elected sheriff in most counties he can appoint you to detective position. All real detectives will hate you and you would be useless on the job, your boss would never send you out on an important job, but you would be a detective. Regardless of military service you will need to be hired by a police department and then work your way up to becoming a detective. As a navy vet, and someone who was master at arms, you will have to start out at...

Q: 

Question about a person invloved in court?

A:  The prosecutor or district attorney You might be talking about an ad litem. Is this a criminal case or a civil case? Victim of what? It''s probably an attorney. If it''s a child victim that you''re talking about in a civil case and the attorney doesn''t work for either parent, then it''s an ad litem. If it''s some kind of victim representative in a criminal case, it''s probably an ad litem. If it''s the guy who brought the charges against the defendant in a criminal case, it''s the prosecutor. That''d be a lawyer - either for the defence or the prosecution. You mean the prosecutor, I believe. They work for the district attorney and are sometimes called as such as well (i.e. Assistant District Attorney)....

Q: 

I got a call from a collector threatening to take our home due to a judgment against me from 10 years ago. Can they do this?

A:  While it may be possible for this creditor to seize and force the sale of your home in order to enforce it judgment against you, it is something that rarely actually happens. Debt collectors frequently threaten consumers with seizure of property, but they rarely follow through with such threats. More often than not, they make these statements to intimidate and frighten consumers who are unable to pay off their debts. A judgment creditor is much more likely to simply place a lien on your home than it is to actually try to seize the property. If you sold or refinanced the home, a lien would force you to pay the debt out of the proceeds of the transaction. Usually, a lien would only be a concern if you voluntarily sold or refinanced the home; liens are not intended to force the sale of...

Q: 

Can I cut out my son in law out of my will?

A:  You certainly can cut him out. Whatever she gets is her separate property. Well, that is good news, and it sounds so simple, but is it? I mean, they have a combined debt, somewhere in the neighborhood of 30 to 50 K. If they separated now, she''d be paying palimony and child support. How is the money from my estate, only about 50k, going to be kept out of all that if she gets it? Uni Dirtbag? Wow... Gee, Dad, I love you too... I say spend the money on the kids before taking the big sleep. I was once told by an investment expert "the day you die, all your accounts should be at zero..." Some of the answers on this board borderline on absolute lunacy. Enormous sense of entitlement seems the theme in the last post. For one thing, it is an...
