I Need Legal Advice And Quick!?
Long Story Short;
Had A Guy Come To Quote Us On A Deck Build
Dog Got Outside And Went To Grab His Keys Dangling In His *** Pocket
Dog Bit ***, From What He Said He Was Ok We Offered Assistance He Insisted He Was Fine
Come 3 Years Later To Now, We Didnt Buy A Deck Because He Wanted Too Much Instead My Dad Built It Himself
So We Figure He Saw This And So Now He Wants To Sue
Alot Of Back And Forth But He Contacted Whoever And We Got A Call From Insurance That He Wants To Go Forward With A Lawsuit
We Recieved A Letter In The Mail
They Want $1 Million Plus Legal Fees
Is This Even Possible To Get 1Mill For An But Nip ?
How Can We Get Around This
Three years after the fact, the statute of limitations may have expired. Also, the $1 million demand is ridiculous. I think whoever is behind the letter is throwing shlt on the wall and seeing if it sticks.
Get yourself an attorney of your own and see what he advises.
Suicide And Public Property Damage Law In California?
First Off, This Is Just Because Of An Argument Some Of My Buddies Got Into, And We Consult The Yahoos For A Final Answer.
If A Minor Decides To Set Themselves On Fire, Say In A Town Plaza, Or Any Public Place, And It'S Not A Protest- Just Suicide, What Happens With Any Property Damages/ Endangerment Of Other People (Because Possibility Of Fire Spreading)? If The Person Dies, Does Their Family Have To Pay A Fee For Any Damage The Fire Caused (Or In Another Case, For Just The Possibility?) Also, What If The Person Survives? Do They Then Go To Jail? Or Forced Into A Mental Hospital?
You can sue the estate of an individual for torts they committed, so yes they could possibly recover. What would happen is anybody who had property damage from it or was injured could file a lawsuit against the estate, and then the estate would be responsible for paying any legal fees for defending the lawsuit as well as any judgement or settlement that it makes. So the family themselves wouldn't have to pay out of their own money, but it would come off the estate so the inheritance of the family and friends would be reduced.
While people could, in theory, sue the estate even if they didn't suffer any injury or damage to property, you have to show damages to recover in a civil case, so they would in all likelihood not recover anything.
If the person survived, they would likely be charged with some sort of a crime depending on the circumstances. If they were charged, they may be incompetent to stand trial in which case they could end up in a psychiatric or mental health facility of some sort. They could also be involuntarily committed regardless of whether or not they were charged if they can show that the person's condition poses a serious threat of bodily harm to themselves or others.
And you didn't ask this, but the fact that it was a protest even if it was wouldn't change anything. Freedom of speech isn't absolute, and you are still responsible for your actions. The only difference it may make is that the person would be more likely to face criminal charges instead of receiving any sort of medical help.
Child Custody Please Advice?
Okay, I Am Pregnant Right Now And The Dad'S Saying Its Not His. Well, I Told Him That Rather He Beleives It Or Not Its His And I Am Putting His Name On The Birth Certificate. Well, His Response Was If I Did He Would Have A Dna Test Done(I Already Planned That) And Get Custody Of The Baby. How Likely Is It That He Can Do This If I Am Not Unfit I Have A Clean House, I Am Currently Not Working But Checking Into A Work At Home Thing. The Reason I Am Not Working Is Cuz I Can'T Lift. What Are The Chances He Will Be Able To Get Full Custody Of The Baby. I'M Not Real Worried About It But He Does Have More Money Than I Do.
Highly unlikely- parents don't get sole custody without a reason, the majority of judges won't go for that. In all honesty, he's just saying that to scare you out of doing the test- if DNA tests prove it's his, he'll have to pay child support, and it sounds like he will do anything possible to keep from having responsibility in this- he's not going to go for full custody, he doesn't even want to be named the daddy..
What Do Most Criminal Defense Lawyers Major In?
Although provision vary by state, in order to become a criminal defense lawyer you first need to obtain a bachelor's degree. You can choose any major however most people intending to enter law school choose political science, history, criminal justice, or pre-law majors. You must also pass the LSAT (Law School Admissions Test) if applying to an ABA (American Bar Association) approved school. Once accepted you will then need to complete 3 years of legal studies in law school if attending full time and longer if attending only part time. Unlike medical school attending a certain institution does not guarantee you a seat in law school. Students fiercely compete for a seat in a law school. You should keep your undergraduate grade point average as high as possible and strive obtain the highest LSAT score to your ability. I am a pre-law major, so good luck to you future counselor
Intoxilyzer 5000 Hose Broke During Dui/Dwi Testing In Minnesota. Do I Have A Defense?
I Was Charged With A Dui. I Was Taken Into The Station And Did All The Neccesarily Procedures. My First Test Showed A .286 (No Way I Was That High), The Second Sample On The Test Not Meeting The .02 Agreement, Showed A .263. After The Test, The Officer Noticed The Hose Was Broken, Or Something To That Extent. The Last Test Ending At 2:26 A.M. He Then Was Working On The Machine, Changing The Hose I Believe ( I'M Not An Expert On These Machines). At 3:12 My Final Reported Value Was .23 G/210 L. In The Police Report I Would Have Assumed That The Officer Would Have Noted That The Machine &Quot;Broke&Quot; Ie: Hose Breaking, But There Was No Note Of It In The Police Report. I Know There Is A Lot Of Speculation On The Accuracy Of The Intolyzer... Could There Be Human Error? I Have A Lawyer But Am Looking For Some Information On My Own. It Seems Like The Two Tests, First Being .289 And The Second Going Down To A .23 In A 40 Minute Period Seems Very Strange And Almost Like The Test Was Innacurate. Any Advice/Suggestions Would Be Helpful...
You might have a defense, until the prosecutor plays the footage of your field sobriety test and your breathalyzer test. If, however, in those tests you appear sober then the footage of the officer playing with the machine would likely sway the jury. Juries are confused by breathalyzer machines. The prosecutor may put on an expert witness to testify as to the accuracy of the machine who, ironically, will only confuse the jury more. In the end, the jury will make their determination by what they see in the videotape.
Is Homeland Security And Law Enforcement The Same Thing?
Homeland security is facet of criminal justice policing that primarily focuses on investigation, interception, and detection of external threats (customs, immigration, smuggling, foreign terrorist threat), as opposed to state and local policing that focus on domestic crimes against persons and property. A Bachelor's degree is required for federal special agent positions (very few exceptions) and the maximum age is 37. Any major is acceptable, but CJ, Computer Science, Sociology, Accounting, or Psych may stand you in better stead for most positions. Those meeting the minimum requirements may not compare well to the best qualified applicants, and there are always more applicants than positions. The FBI likes lawyers and accountants, but they hire from various backgrounds, with at least 3 years of substantive employment (http://www.fbijobs.gov/). The same could be said for the Secret Service, their primary duties (outside of protection) involve financial crimes and counterfeiting. Any responsible employment may acceptable, but law enforcement may be beneficial (particularly investigative rather than patrol). Other federal agency job announcements should be available at https://my.usajobs.gov/login.aspx.
The FBI in particular needs people capable of investigating major frauds and conspiracies involving numerous business and technical occupations and professions; whereas, local police are more oriented to street crime. Federal agents must be capable of understanding and communicating at a level above that usually expected from patrol officers. Federal agencies are looking for people who fit in at all social strata, and the expectations are greater with regard to preparation of reports and affidavits. In my experience, state and local officers have their affidavits written by prosecutors; whereas, federal agents write their own.
Being a military officer will normally be advantageous, and military service usually provides veteran preference in the hiring process. However, enlisted service will not necessarily enhance one’s prospects, unless in a specialized position or exemplary service is documented. Military police assignments will not necessarily provide an advantage over infantry assignments, and the branch of service is not necessarily important. Being a practicing attorney or accountant would also place one in a good position. Forensic computer expertise and language capabilities are valued in all agencies.
You are more likely to be successful if you do not restrict yourself to one agency. Moreover, agents get hired from other agencies regularly. If you have proven yourself in another agency (particularly federal), you will have an advantage for FBI hiring. Being a police officer may be helpful, depending on personal performance, assignments, and agency reputation.
I recommend that people major in psych and minor in CJ (even though I majored in CJ for a BS and PhD, with a Masters in management [sponsored by and on government time]). The academic specialization for a graduate degree is not necessarily important.
GPA (above 3.5 is a plus), testing, physical fitness, work experience, possibly a polygraph, ability to communicate orally and in writing, possibly physical test results, and graduate degrees are what determine who gets hired. And, I repeat, there are always more applicants than there are positions.
There are numerous special agent positions (see list below, not all have full arrest, search, and seizure authority), in what was and I assume still is the 1811 job series (1810 are unarmed investigators without arrest authority). There are also law enforcement related positions in the Dept of Homeland Security and other agencies, such as inspector positions or Border Patrol agents, that could be open to those with 2 years of college or less. And, there are federal police officers within federal agencies (e.g., Dept of Veterans Affairs, Treasury, Federal Protective Service). Agencies:
ATF, Customs and Border Protection (uniform wearing: Border Patrol Agent, Officers), DEA, Dept of Def, Dept of State, Dept of Homeland Sec (ICE, TSA)
Dept of Labor, EPA, FBI, FDA, Fish & Wildlife (few positions, many applicants), Inspector General Offices within departments and/or agencies, IRS, Marshals Service, Secret Svc, Securities Exchange Commission, and each branch of the Armed Forces (some civilian, some active duty).
Apply at as many places as possible, and accept the first offer. Then, if that’s not where you want to be, keep applying to the agency you want.
