Q: 

threat to report to my IP, or just a power tripping admin?

A:  "Is this simply a threat (which I hope so) or should I brace myself for anything. Like action from the univeristy, etc?" * Two very simple responses: 1) How the hell would we know whether actions by someone else, for something we don''t know about, are valid or not? and 2) What the hell does this have to do with the law? Hell if I know....

is it abuse in CA

Q: 

Eavesdropping: Legal or Illegal? You decide

A:  "Taylor" <123...456.com> wrote in message news:UauCf.7279$Vr.6268...tornado.texas.rr.com... The following is a hypothetical situation which illustrates the debate over Bush''s eavesdropping program: Sam is an American citizen living in Chicago. Fed up with Bush''s "illegal" war, he quits the Democratic party to join the Iraqi "insurgency". He changes his name to Samir, and flies to Bagdad. Al Quesa is the local terrorist group leading the insurgency. In Bagdad, Samire meets Ali, Al Quesa''s third in command. Ali teaches him how to be a terrorist. Samir learns quickly, setting off a car bomb killing 20 innocent Iraqis, and firing an RPG into a military convoy killing 5 coalition troops, including 3 American troops. 1. While reconstructing hospitals,...

Is This Libel?--Q

A:  I don''t know about British law in this aspect, but let us say this: according to the theory of torts you might have come close to either: -False light "The privacy tort of false light overlaps in large measure with defamation. The elements of false light which must be established by all plaintiffs include the defendant''s (1) publicizing (2) false facts (3) that a reasonable person would object to. [Restatement 652E.] False facts that a reasonable person would object to encompass a broad category that includes, but is not limited to, defamatory statements actionable under defamation. [See, e.g., Time v. Hill, 385 U.S. 374 (1967).]" Or outright defamation of character (libel). "Common law...

Q: 

Wrongfully accused.--Q

A:  We have no idea if it''s a threat or not. But even if it is, that''s not illegal. If the company investigation leads them to believe that you were responsible, they may discipline or even fire you for it, even if they are mistaken. It would be unfair but not illegal. Hopefully that will not happen, and I am not saying it WILL happen. I am saying it CAN happen. Even if they cannot prove it was me but they have reason to believe it was, can they fire me for it? It is not illegal to fire someone for "suspected" theft This is friggin lame. I have no idea how to prove to them that I didnt do it, but I suppose they are going to believe what they choose. Thanks for the advice. Theres no law that requires an employer prove theft in...

Q: 

threatening Emails/Text Messages

A:  If I am not mistaken you were given the correct legal advice at http://www.alltopicsforums.com I think you should seek a restraining order. This will serve to hopefully stop the threatening and inappropriate contact and also serve to provide legal consequences should they continue to send you threatening texts. The role of the police in upholding restraining orders is merely supervisory, and the degree of willingness that a particular police department may exhibit toward the enforcement of restraining orders varies widely. Thus, the most effective way to enforce a restraining order is to file a request with the Court to find the other party in contempt or violation of the restraining order. http://www.legalmatch.com/

Q: 

Does law enforcement have such a policy as shoot to wound or is it strictly deadly force?

A:  Any shooting is deadly force. Deadly force is defined as that force likely to cause death or serious physical injury. Anyone who has ever used a pistol before will tell you that it is harder than it looks. Shooting center mass is the most reliable way to stop the threat (the reason we use deadly force in the first place) and produces the highest likelihood of hitting what you are shooting at. I am reasonably confident that if you are shooting at the Police, their first impulse is going to be to shoot you dead centre before you kill them or an innocent bystander. Besides, no matter what you see in the movies, pistols are not all that accurate in a combat situation. Cop aims at your shoulder and the bullet could just as easily hit you in the head or hit someone...

Q: 

Should I just find another job? I love or used to love my job. We had a security issue last week and the cops?

A:  if you''ve been there awhile & felt safe until this happened, i wouldnt worry about it. there are nut cases all over the place - the odds of it happening again in the same location are slim to none. but, it all boils down to how secure you feel when your there.... you have to have peace of mind - whatever that takes. good luck! Unsafe work environments are awful. The receptionist always gets shot first. My boss got me bullet proof glass, a buzzer system to let people in from the reception area that I control, and a panic button. After a few months, the danger level went down, but I am still happy to have a boss who values my safety....

Q: 

Police use of a firearm

A:  If a police officer displays or purposefully reaches for his firearm. Are you saying he pulled his gun and waived it around or are you saying he put his hand on his gun? If the latter, I did that all the time when I was running to keep the gun from banging on my hip. If the former, most likely inappropriate and needs to be brought to the attention of a supervisor. Still, not exactly the way I want my surgeon to be greated on his way to the operating room. BTW, how was he supposed to know it was a trauma physician and not someone trying to sneak through? That ain't going anywhere. While it is easy to analyze these situations post-event, the officer has to react to a set of unknown circumstances. Sounds like the cop didn't know this was a doc. Sounds like it wasn't an...

Q: 

Contract with Employees

A:  Hello Ti, First off we cannot tell you what is legal or not legal only a judge can do that for you.  We know nothing about OK state law and would strongly encourage you to ask these questions of an experienced employment law attorney in OK.  Federal law and the common law concept of At Will Employment does allow for some of the actions this employer is proposing to take.  A very valuable place to find this information is at: www.dol.gov/esa/whd.  This is a federal site that is searchable.  Best regards...
