Someone Suggested That I Go To Cab And Ask For Assistance, What Is Cab?
I am sorry, I just assumed that you were in the U.K. and would know..when even if you are in the U.K, there is no reason why you should do unless you have had previous dealings with them. The Citizen's Advice Bureau provides free legal advice and assistance in legal and social matters. If you are not in the U.K. then there may still be some organisation that can assist you in this matter, it would be worthwhile to ask your doctor or a hospital counsellor if they know of one.

I would suggest you contact the college now and now is a very good time because you have your focus and you will know what credentials are necessary to attend college. For example: University of California.edu, you should be able to find an administrator you are able to contact or a counselor. This way while attending High School you will be able to know what classes you should take and the grade level you need to maintain.
I would also suggest your asking your parents to purchase you a "Blacks Law Dictionary" as it pertains to Legal Terms you will need to know for future use. Also, ask your parents to purchase a study guide LSAT, it is a study test for those individuals who want to get into Law School. This way you do this and you will be well on your way to being a Lawyer.
Stay focused, stay away from boys, believe me they will be a distraction. During the summer if you near a court house you should sit in for some of the hearings. Call your local court house and see which hearings you would be able to sit in and listen. Just Remember it is the Judge's court room and you will learn the protocal and procedures of the court room. Make sure you have an adult to take you there and pick you up from the court house.
Copy this e-mail and tape it somewhere in your room so you will be able to read it and remind yourself of your goals.
Another bit of advice, do not be around individuals who drink, use illegal drugs, any thing that could jeapordize your future. There is a Law that states "guilty by association". Be careful of who you associate with in the future.
Keep these plans, stay focused, and stay away from parties and those individuals who say you are no fun. Those individuals are headed for serious trouble, and who knows, you might have to represent some of them in the future.
Is The Attorney Buck Taylor A Fraud?
He Is An Attorney In Tennesse. And I Need To Know If He Is A Fraud Or Not. He Doesnt Answer My Calls Anymore, And He Is Making Up Excuses. Have You Guys Ever Heard Of Him?
Hi. I cannot answer the question whether "Buck Taylor" is a fraud. However, after doing a search on the Tennessee Bar Association website, I can tell you there is no attorney with that name licensed in the state of Tennessee. Please see the bar website located below, and you can click on 'Search for a Member', and you can try to locate that name. There are 33 Taylors registered in Tennessee - I couldn't tell you if Buck Taylor might be registered under a different first name, etc.
Even if Buck Taylor IS a licensed attorney (wherever), you can file a complaint with the bar association of that state if you feel the attorney has been negligent, or in your case, fraudulent, etc. If Buck Taylor is not a licensed attorney, it is possible civil or criminal charges could be brought against him (though I certainly don't have enough information to say one way or the other on that).
Legal Help/Research For A Book?
Here'S The Scenario:
A Young Woman Has Just Lost Her Husband Of Five Years In A Car Accident. The Man Who Caused The Accident Had Fallen Asleep At The Wheel.
Now, The Widow Is A Very Forgiving Soul And As Such Decides To Grant Amnesty To The Man Who Killed Her Husband. However, For Fear That Her Husband'S Family Would Try And Stop Her, She Doesn'T Tell Anyone About The Decision She'S Made.
When The Truth Finally Does Come Out, Her In-Laws Are Up In Arms, And Are Looking For Justice. Yet, She Insists That The Man Go Free.
Can Her In-Laws Sue Her For Something, Do They Have A Case They Can Take To Court?
Are There Any Wholes In This Scenario?
Thanks For The Help!
There are two legal issues here.
One is criminal. If the driver who fell asleep may have been legally negligent, then the district attorney's office can prosecute him without any regard to what the widow wants. Her views may be taken into account if the guy's convicted, when the judge pronounces the sentence.
(Example from real life: A tour bus driver gambled in Atlantic City all night instead of sleeping. Awake for more than 40 hours, he fell asleep at the wheel on the New York Thruway, crashed the bus, killing and injuring his passengers. He was charged with criminally negligent homicide.)
The other half is a civil suit. The wife can choose not to sue the driver for loss of her husband and their vehicle but to accept the liability coverage his insurance company offers to compensate. Usually it's pretty low compared to real-world factors like the person's potential lifetime earnings, but adequate to reimburse the vehicle's actual value if they'd sold it.
The in-laws can sue for loss of their son, but they're unlikely to win any judgment. The spouse's loss is presumed to trump all other claims.
The wife will not ever hold the decision in her hands on whether the driver who fell asleep will go free. The judge's decision in any criminal trial will take her wishes into his consideration, but they will not be the only factor he or she weighs.
How Do I Find A Divorce Decree In Illinois?
I Need To Find My Dad'S Divorce Decree. All I Know Is The Date He Got Married, His Ex'S Name, And That They Got Married In Chicago. He Got Divorced Around 1982-83. He Has Not Had Any Contact With Her Since 81 And He Says She Sought A Divorce, But He Doesn'T Know Where Or What Year Exactly. Please Help!!!!!
The divorce decree/judgment is a public record that should be in the court's divorce file in whatever county your dad was granted his divorce. Hopefully that record has not been destroyed but also may be on microfilm. If he can't recall what county the divorce was in (apart from other concerns) I believe you or your father can get that info from the Illinois Department of Public Health - Vital Records
Are Provoked Assault Charges Dismissed?
Sorry If I Phrased The Question Wrong.
If A Person Is Provoked Into Assaulting Another Person, Will The Charges Most Likely Be Dropped?
I Watched Two Episodes Of Judge Judy On Youtube, Both Cases About Bullies.
In The First One, A Young Boy Assaulted A Young Girl, And The Girl'S Mom Was Suing For Medical Bills. The Defendant Only Had To Pay A Part Of The Bill (Like $300) While The Plaintiff Was Stuck With The $1,000+ Bill. The Reason The Girl Was Assaulted Was Because She Made Fun Of, Teased And Provoked The Boy. Although The Boy'S Action Were Wrong, Judge Judy Confronted The Mother About Her Daughter'S Manipulative Ways.
In The Other Video, (This Is Irrelevant To The Case) But It Was Mentioned That One Of The Guys Was Charged With Assault. He Said That The Charges Were Dropped As Soon As They Found Out The Assault Was Provoked.
My Question Is, If Someone Provokes You To Hit Them, Is It Likely The Charges Put On You Will Be Dropped?
I Honestly Always Thought That It Didn'T Matter How Much Someone Provoked You (E.G. Verbally Trash Talking) You Had No Right To Hit Them Back, Unless They Were Coming At You To Try And Hurt You Physically. I Understand People May Say, If You Trash Talk Someone, And They Hit You. You Deserve It, But I Am Kind Of Always For The Law. So If You Hit That Person Trash Talking You, Sure You May Have Gotten Revenge In The Sense That You Hit Them, But You Would In The End Have To Pay Them For The Bills And Get This On Your Record.
Can Someone Please Clarify? Thank You!
In a criminal case, charges are filed which result in a punishment (things like fines, jail, probation). In a criminal case, the aggressor is always in the wrong. As you said, no matter what someone says to you, you can't hit them.
Legally, "assault" is "an act that creates an apprehension in another of an imminent, harmful, or offensive contact," not the actual contact. (Hitting someone is a charge called "battery.") It is not assault if the other person assaults you first, and you respond in kind.
For example, you are I are arguing. I take some aggressive steps toward you, and you raise a hand. Now, usually, raising a hand is an assault. (I think you'll hit me, which is offensive contact, obviously.) However, in this case, since I advanced first, your assault is not going to be a crime. It's the reaction to being provoked. My assault is the crime, because I was the aggressor. And that's how your charge gets dismissed.
Judge Judy is not a criminal trial, it's civil trial. In a civil trial, money is awarded to those who have lost some as result of someone else's action. That charge is legally called a "tort." (Although lay persons do use the word "charge" for both.) A civil trial has a different legal standards than criminal. In awarding "damages" (the money lost) civil trials find "fault," which is anything that contributed to the damages, and award a percentage of the money relative to the level of fault.
If, for example, I run a red light and hit your car, I'm a hundred percent at fault, so I have to pay all the damages. If, however, we both ran a stop sign and collided, we are each fifty percent at fault, so we both pay our own damages.
In the case of those children, for example, it may be only ten percent that kid's fault for lashing out, and ninety percent the girl's fault for torturing the poor kid to his breaking point. Because if she'd just left him alone, he wouldn't have hit her.
Hope that helps. :)
