To Avoid A Car Accident I Came Close To A Construction Worker...?
Ok So I Avoided A Accident With Another Car I Must Of Came Close To A Construction Workers Car So They Got In The Car And Followed Me And Got My Plate #
I Didn'T Know I Was Being Followed But A Another Car Saw It And Told Me 4-5 Lights Later.
I Was Shocked To Hear It.
Can Anything Happen I Don'T Know..
If So What Should I Do?
I'M Told Since The Police Didnt' See It And No One Got Hurt It Isn'T A Legal Matter.
I'M Worried The Last Thig I Need Is A Ticket Or A Fine As Money Isn'T Good Now.
Plus I Didnt' Have Any Choice I Am Luck I Didnt' Hit Anyone.
I Was Just Avoiding Another Accident.
Thanks For The Help!
Construction zones are a serious issue when you have workers so close to traffic going by at high speeds. It's sad when inconsiderate drivers take the workers lives into their own hands.
As for the offense...
Since an officer didn't see the offense...the officer can't issue the ticket. However, any person that witnessed the event CAN file a warrant for careless driving or reckless endangerment.
This means that person would have to take time to file a police report...then file a warrant for arrest. Many don't want to take the time to do this.
My opinion...but I think everybody was lucky this time and nothing more will occur.
Lesson learned........be more defensive when driving!
Is It Discrimination If I Will Never Date A Lawyer?
I Am Going For Business. I Met The Former President Of Hallmark And We Discussed About Business. He Told Me He Dislikes Lawyer And Would Never Allow A Lawyer To Lease Any Of His Properties. Dealing With Lawyers Recently I Must Agree With Him Because They Are Very Problematic, Greedy And Just Not My Type Of People.
It's not discrimination, per se.
But shutting yourself off to an entire group of people can make you miss out on a lot of good stuff (trust me, I know.) It also kind of depends on the type of lawyer. I used to work for a lawyer that dealt solely in Social Security disability cases. She was trying to get disability benefits for people who were too physically disabled to work - money they needed to pay their electric bills and feed their children. Did she do it for free? No. But she worked her butt of for her clients because they couldn't do it alone.
Corporate litigators, on the other hand...
And by the way, if you're going into business, you're going to meet a LOT of lawyers. Better get used to them.
What Is The Best Degree You Can Get In Law?
If You Want To Make It Big At A Top Corporate Law Firm
If you mean the highest degree that you can earn in law, it is the J.S.D. (or S.J.D., depending on the institution), and it is equivalent to the Doctorate of Philosophy in Law (PhD or DPhil depending on the law school in UK).
CAVEAT: That degree is a research degree and is unlikely to assist you "to make it big at a top corporate law firm."
Similarly, there is a Masters degree offered in law (LL.M.). These programs are not common; however, they permit a student who has earned a J.D. to focus on a particular area of law. The most common specialty is in tax law.
CAVEAT: That degree represents a specialized course of study and is unlikely to assist you initially "to make it big at a top corporate law firm."
***That said, I believe that the "best degree you can get [earn] in law...[i]f you want to make it big at a top corporate law firm" is the J.D. degree at one of the most respected schools of law in the United States. The "tier one" schools include Harvard; Yale; Stanford; Boalt Hall - University of California -- Berkeley; Columbia University -- New York; University of Chicago; New York University; University of Pennsylvania; Northwestern University; University of Michigan -- Ann Arbor; University of Virginia; Cornell University; Duke University; University of California -- Los Angeles; Vanderbilt University; Georgetown University; and the University of Texas -- Austin.
Additionally, earning a joint degree in law (J.D.) and management / business (M.B.A.) may be attractive to "top corporate law firms."
The "top corporate law firms" will also be interested in how well you perform as a student at a "tier one" school of law. The higher that you rank in your class, the more attractive that you will be to "top corporate law firms." Also, such firms are interested in your writing skills. Thus, writing for the Law Review can add to your resume.
As to judicial or law firm clerkships, either can make you a more attractive candidate; and, if you are able to land a clerkship at "a top corporate law firm," working hard and effectively will help you land an entry position.
Thus, earning a J.D. degree at a "tier one" school of law; doing well as a student; earning degrees in both law and business / management as part of a joint J.D. / M.B.A. program; and earning a judicial or corporate law firm clerkship are amongst the indicators that "top corporate law firms" look to in selecting new associates.
I should hasten to add that making "it big at a top corporate law firm" will depend most upon how well you perform as an associate at the firm.
Living In Toronto. How Do I Revoke My Father'S Power Of Attorney Over Me?
First Of All: I Have No Idea How He Got Power Of Attorney Over Me Because I Never Signed Any Forms Or Gave Me Permission To Represent Me.
About 6 Years After He Got Power Of Attorney Over Me, He Tricked Me Into Signing A Form Waiving My Rights By Lying To Me About What The Content Of The Form Actually Was.
Now I Would Like To Revoke His Power Of Attorney Over Me And His Control Over My Life. I Do Not Have Any Psychological Or Mental Problems And Have An Above Average I.Q.
If this is true, you should see a lawyer. A power of attorney needs two witnesses. Generally, healthy intelligent people don't sign them except for specific reasons & then for short periods. I signed one once so my father could handle my affairs while I back packed through Europe & Asia in the days before email & cell phones.
If your father is using a power of attorney to control your money, go to your bank and demand to see the power of attorney and tell them you want to revoke it immediately.

First Amendment Versus Constitutional Law?
I'M Doing A Case Trial From The Original Monkey Scopes Trial Back In 1925. I'M A Witness To The Prosecution Team And I'M A Law Expert. I'M Suppose To Talk On Constitutional Laws And That Mr. Scopes Violated The Law And Therefore He Was Brought Up To Trial. But The Opposing Team Is Using The First Amendment (Freedom Of Speech) As A Reason To Why Scopes Taught Evolution.
So My Question, Is There Any Statements Regarding How The First Amendment Cannot Be Brought Up When One Has Violated A Constitutional Law? The Limitations To The First Amendment?
I'Ve Googled And Read Articles On This, And I Found Nothing On It. I'M Not Sure If It'S Because There Aren'T Any Statements About It Or It'S Because I'M A Total Noob With The United States Law And Constitutions.
Answers Are Very Much Appreciated, Please And Thank You.
It was a GRAND WASTE OF TIME.
But what person living in 1925 could not become immersed in a trial that set out to prove if we humans evolved from apes or were created by an Almighty being? This made it a SENSATIONAL trial that garnered the headlines every day in the USA. When the dust settled, however, the trial proved to be unimportant and a grand waste of time,
What most people have lost sight of after 86 years is that the Scopes Monkey Trial was nothing more than a publicity stunt. John Scopes, the teacher, for lack of a better term, was ‘recruited’ to be the defendant in the case by the ACLU. There was no ‘Salem Witch-Hunt’ in Dayton with preachers trolling the hallways of Dayton’s schools hunting for teachers who were violating Tennessee’s Butler Act on teaching evolution. But what person living in 1925 could not become immersed in a trial that set out to prove if we humans evolved from apes or were created by an Almighty being? This made it a SENSATIONAL trial that garnered the headlines every day in the USA.
“The whole idea of suing a teacher for teaching evolution was not conceived by the citizens of Dayton, Tennessee, but rather was promoted by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) in New York City. The ACLU advertised in newspapers to locate a teacher in Tennessee who would be willing to test the Butler Act in the courts (with all expenses to be paid by the ACLU). A Dayton resident, George Rappleyea, saw an ACLU advertisement in a Chattanooga newspaper and pressured his friend John Scopes to accept the offer. Unfortunately, Scopes was not a science teacher (he majored in prelaw) and had never actually taught evolution! Scopes was a math teacher and football coach who had merely filled in for the biology teacher (who was ill) for two weeks at the end of the school year. Still, with Scopes' reluctant permission, Rappleyea immediately notified the ACLU that "Professor J.T. Scopes, teacher of science at Rhea County High School, will be arrested and charged with teaching evolution."
It was a jury trial and Scopes was found guilty of teaching evolution theories in violation of Tennessee law, i.e., the Butler Act, and he was fined $100. That is all he was on trial for. In 1926, a year after the guilty verdict, the Tennessee Supreme Court reversed the decision of the Dayton court on a technicality and dismissed the case. The court commented, "Nothing is to be gained by prolonging the life of this bizarre case."
Evolution was viewed more 'cautiously', if not liberally, by southern (Fundamentalist) state governments a year after the trial:
"The Scopes trial by no means ended the debate over the teaching of evolution, but it did represent a significant setback for the anti-evolution forces. Of the fifteen states with anti- evolution legislation pending in 1925, only two states (Arkansas and Mississippi) enacted laws restricting teaching of Darwin's theory."
Other than this, nothing was accomplished. Frankly, it was pretty much a grand waste of time, but it sure made the headlines and stimulated the economy of Dayton, Tennessee.
Ct Security Deposit Laws?
I Lived In An Apartment Rom June 07 To June 08. I Was Never Late On Rent (Except For The Last Month) And Did No Damage To The Apartment.
Rent Was $850/Month
As A Security Deposit I Put Down $1425
I Did Not Pay My Last Months Rent, I Know I Have To Pay 5% Of My Rent ($42.50) Extra For Each Week It Was Late According To The Lease. There Was A 10 Day Grace Period In Which I Would Not Be Penalized For Not Paying Rent In The Begining Of The Month.
This Would Mean That I Would Owe Her (Landlord) $977.50 Including The Late Fees. Even Though I Didn'T Pay Last Months Rent, Is She Still Obligated To Give Me Back The $447.50 That Is Remaining Of My Security?
I Have Been Expecting It. She Was Given My Forwarding Address Prior To My Moving Out.
It Has Been Over 30 Days.
Is It Illegal Of Her To Keep My Remaining Money Or Am I In The Wrong??
she owes you and she is kiting.
.......however.......u indicated when you were there; I presume you were on an annual
lease. IT is possible that in CT, you must
give her a 2 mo written notice instead of
a 1 mo notice.
IS your old unit rented out now?
She can withhold security money if
the unit does not rent out quickly
and the state requires a 2 mo written
she is improperly holding your cash.
IF she is improperly withholding it
you can also ask her for 3x the
amount as a PENALTY ALLOWED IN
ALL STATES.......to motivate landlords to
refund within the 15 days obligation period.
