  1. That's certainly not true, but you obviously haven't given us any context for this comment. Depends on what exactly is said. Could be simple assault and/or battery. That's the sort of thing that the state department of labor might investigate. Since you haven't actually told us anything that anyone said to or about you, how do you expect us to opine about this? About what? You haven't shared a single fact with us. All you did was ask about the definition of a word and then give us a tiny bit of information that suggests you're having problems at work.
  2. I'm sure you can do many things. Whether what you have described was legally appropriate is obviously impossible for anyone here to know without any relevant facts or context.
  3. Nothing illegal about any of that.
  4. Please turn off the all-bold font and shorten this to something more reasonable. With that said, I can answer some of the questions you asked. You don't need to do homework. That's the whole point of small claims court. You go in and tell your story and the judge will ask questions and make a decision. You don't need to cite statutes or cases. Yes. No. You can use them as evidence. Whether they suffice as proof will be up to the judge. I don't know of any county that would allow a telephonic appearance for a small claims hearing. No, you cannot recover your travel costs. By the way, depending on how many "thousands of dollars in professional grade film and video equipment" you're talking about, the list of items at the end of your post may well put you over the small claims limit, so you may have to sue in the limited or unlimited civil division or waive any damages in excess of the small claims limit.
  5. I'm not entirely sure who "they" are, but if you're talking about the person or persons who have been calling you, does your question mean that you think you might be getting calls from fictional people? As opposed to what? Fake collectors? Anyone can sue you for anything. I think what you're telling us is that you obtained a loan from Company X and defaulted on the loan. Now you're getting calls from Company Y to collect on the loan. And I think what you're asking is whether Company Y has standing to collect. I should hope it goes without saying that we have no conceivable way of knowing, but the obvious way to find out is to request documentation from Company Y. Obviously depends on what exactly is being said.. If this is all over $250, I suggest you find a way to pay it before interest and penalties and lawyer fees put another zero on the end of the number.
  6. Do you not have a dictionary or know how to use a search engine?
  7. Who are "they"? Well...for starters, are your cousin and her dog still living with you? If so, is your landlord aware of that? If they're no longer there, then the landlord should have no grounds to evict you. If they are still living with you, then your best move might be to ask them to leave.
  8. This is an oddly phrased sentence. You start the sentence by referring twice to "we," which I assume means you and the child's other parent (your spouse?). However, you then state that "I" (singular) "was ready to move back" (from where?) to "my hometown." What happened to "we"? now seems you've backtracked to a time before the child was born. Am I reading this correctly? And does this mean that you learned about the child's heart defects while you were visiting your great-grandmother in Tennessee? Sorry for all the questions, but I want to make sure I correctly understand the sequence of events. It sounds like, after you became pregnant, you visited your great-grandmother in Tennessee. While there, you learned about your child's heart defects and, instead of returning home to Michigan, you chose to stay in Tennessee, giving birth there, and not returning to your home in Michigan until several months after the birth. Correct? I'm not sure what sort of "help" you're seeking or that you think folks on an internet message board can provide. If this is all happening in Tennessee, you need an attorney in Tennessee. Few, if any, attorneys in Michigan are admitted to practice in Tennessee.
  9. Let's say that I run an auto repair shop and do some work on your car. You pay me with a check that eventually bounces. I'm free to sue you and ask that you be imprisoned and given 40 lashes. I can ask for anything I want -- as can your ex. :-)
  10. For what purpose? Well...since you "want fully custody" (whatever exactly you mean by that), you should consult with a local family law attorney about that. As far as your ex's "threat[] to take [you] to jail and [make you] pay a fine for not following the parenting plan," that's obvious silliness, and you're probably best off ignoring it. Your right to visitation is exactly that: a right; it is not an obligation. You are entitled to visitation as provided in the parenting plan, but you are not obligated to do it, and the notion that you could be jailed or fined is beyond absurd. If either of you wants to modify the parenting plan to account for things like moving residences or job changes, you are free to seek whatever modification(s) you believe are appropriate. Consult with a local family law attorney.
  11. None, unless you're in a city with rent control, which doesn't appear to be the case. While a landlord can request that a tenant allow such inspections, California law does not provide the landlord with the right or authority to do so.
  12. Then the details of his wife's employer-sponsored plan don't matter in the slightest. If he's not complying with the terms of the decree, then he's in contempt and you can seek a citation from the court for that. If he wants to argue that the "if available" language gives him an out (and query what the exact language of the decree is), he is free to do so, but I doubt the court would buy it.
  13. It "looks weird" because you posted in all bold. Things like bold, italics and underlining are for emphasis and should be used sparingly. Also, your inclusion of a link to a law firm, which link is frequently used in one-off posts on legal message boards, strongly suggests you're nothing but a spammer. Nothing you've posted here raises any legal issue. Obviously, you need to inquire of your manager as to his expectations of you in the workplace. I don't understand what either of these questions means.
  14. As noted above, only a few jurisdictions have an outright ban on felons practicing law. However, in every state, the chances of a felon being admitted are significantly lower than for non-felons, and the agency in charge of this will seriously scrutinize the candidate.
  15. Define "harassing" (and, in doing so, please keep in mind that you are a convicted felon and they have a very particular job to do). This is all pretty meaningless without any context. Like everyone else, you have dozens of legal rights, and it would serve no useful purpose to try and list them. That said, as a convicted felon on probation, you have fewer rights than non-criminals and those rights you do have are subject to impingement in circumstances that would not be applicable to non-criminals. I suggest you google the meaning of extortion. Agree.
