  1. 1. This won't have any impact. You are "[p]sychologically wound[ed]" because of what happened, not because of the court's opinion, and you're not obligated to read the court's opinion ever again. Moreover, you knew (or should have known) when you initiated the legal action that it could result in an appeal and, consequently, a written opinion. 2. I'm not sure to whom "their" refers (you refer to "their lies" and, in item #3, you refer to "their flawed accounts of [your] dating relationship" but then to "his pursuing of [your] relationship"), but I assume that the opinion contains a summary of the parties allegations. That's part and parcel of any legal action. 3. This seems to be basically the same thing as #2. However, it's worth pointing out that the opinion will not always be the first thing that comes up when one googles your name. 4. I don't really understand what you're getting at here. The protective order presumably prohibits your ex from contacting you; it has nothing to do with the details of the case being public record. Obviously, I'm at a disadvantage because I can't read the opinion, and I understand you don't want to post a link or too many details, but nothing you have posted suggests to me any basis for the court to remove the opinion from its web site. If you had an attorney representing you in this case, you should discuss this with him/her.
  2. In any future posts, please make an effort to use something that resembles proper capitalization and punctuation. Doing so will make it easier for others to read and understand what you write. Anyone can sue anyone for anything, but it's not clear whom you want to sue. If you're talking about suing the city or the police, such a suit would be frivolous. While I'm sure folks get frustrated about the dearth of parking, I doubt you could ever prove a quantifiable impact on your business. Given that you have complained and been ignored, the appropriate way to deal with this is to seek to vote the existing local officials out of office and to replace them with persons who will devote resources to enforcing this law. You could also seek to mount a public relations campaign, although I doubt most folks will care about something of this sort.
  3. If you're the employer, you certainly may pay your employees for hours they didn't work (although I suspect that, if you were audited, you might have a problem here). Of course, if you're going to pay them for 125% of their hours worked, I can't conceive why you wouldn't simply increase their wages and pay them for only the hours actually worked. If you're not the employer (and, instead, are merely the payroll person for the same employer for whom these people work), then whether you can do this (without getting yourself fired) is obviously up to the employer. Note that I have no idea what you meant when you wrote that you "have [these] folks" or that your "industry . . . will not allow [you] to pay them more." Despite your use of a question mark, this sentence is not a question. If you intended it to be a question, I can't really discern what you intended to ask (if you were asking if these numbers are correct, it appears they are). Ultimately, it's not clear what you're trying to accomplish. If you want to give them a raise, then do so.
  4. If you can get a doctor to testify about a causal link between the bills and wrongdoing by the landlord, you might be able to recover. My guess, though, is that few, if any, doctors would so testify and that, even if one would, it would cost more than you could recover.
  5. You know this how? That depends. How was the money maintained? If it was in bank and/or investment accounts, did those accounts designate pay-on-death beneficiaries? If so, who are the beneficiaries? Did your mother have a will? If so, what did it say? Then those beneficiaries would be presumed to be entitled to the money. Most folks in your situation would go through the deceased parent's papers/records (which most folks maintain in a desk or file cabinet).
  6. Your post contains 1,224 words (no, I didn't count; I used MS Word's word count feature), is in all bold (except for the blurb at the end) and contains not a single punctuation mark or paragraph break. What would possess you to write like that? Look at your post objectively and tell us if you really think anyone should try reading it? SMH
  7. "Petition to take off the web"? There is no such thing -- especially since you're talking about an opinion of the Court of Appeal, which is a matter of public record. The term "unpublished" simply means that the opinion is not to be published in the official reports. All appellate opinions are "published" in one form or another, including by being posted at the web site. As noted in the prior response, you could try contacting Google, but I doubt the company would be receptive to such a request. If the company were in the habit of altering its search engine just because someone thinks some particular content is harmful, it would need a veritable army of employees solely for that purpose, and its search engine would lose all credibility. I don't really know what you mean by "remove the document from google." Google is a private entity that operates a search engine. When you run a google search for a non-celebrity, the results are simply what the search engine finds elsewhere on the internet. Google doesn't maintain the content; it merely directs you to places where the content can be located. Moreover, the Court of Appeal has no authority to dictate what results are returned by Google's search engine. The only thing the Court of Appeal could do would be to remove the opinion from the court's web site, but the opinion would remain public record. Unless the person at the court with whom you spoke cited a rule that allows for this procedure, there isn't much guidance anyone here can offer you, except to say that any letter should not be written the same way you wrote your post. Your post merely claims that the availability of the opinion is causing you harm, but you didn't offer any explanation as to why or how it is doing so. Focus on the words "compelling evidence."
  8. Unless the other driver pays voluntarily, suing is your only option.
  9. I assume you mean that you're not naming the company; not that it's "anonymous." Unless the officer who prepared the police report actually witnessed what happened, a police report is nothing more than a collection of statements made by persons who did witness the incident and the officer's after-the-fact observations. Insurance companies often rely on police reports in making decisions regarding claims. I don't know who "they" are, but if I were you, I would contact "them" and make an inquiry. Note that it's doubtful that anything recorded is maintained on "tape." There's no such thing as 110% fault. In any event, if you cannot convince her insurer to change its determination, you'll have to sue her. Based on a quick google search, it appears the Alabama small claims limit is $6k, which is right in the middle of the range you mentioned. It also appears that lawyers are permitted in Alabama small claims court, so her insurer would owe her a duty to hire a lawyer to defend her and, if you win, would owe her a duty to indemnify her against any judgment up to her policy limit.
  10. Here's some info re termination of parental rights in Illinois in connection with an adoption.
  11. "PL" is short for Penal Law (i.e., the New York Penal Law). "160.05" is robbery in the third degree (hence, "Robbery-3rd"). I have no idea what "00D" means. "Felony" means that this offense is punishable as a felony. "Indictment Count4," taken in the context of all of the rest of your post, indicates that the person to whom all of this relates has been charged in an indictment that contains 10 counts, all but two of which are felonies. The 3rd degree robbery charge is count #4 of 10. The indictment appears to have been filed on October 6, 2016. Needless to say, if this person is convicted on all charges, he/she will be going to prison for a long time. Whether or not you need a lawyer obviously depends on whether you're the person to whom all of this relates.
  12. The only way we would know what evidence you have is if you tell us, and you didn't tell us anything about evidence you have. My guess is that you might be able to defend against the additional damages in excess of your security deposit, but nothing in your post indicates you have an affirmative claim against the landlord. It's not clear to me why these things would result in medical bills or time off from work.
  13. Adoption is not a process you initiate. Nor is it something that could be completed in a mere nine days. It might not even be able to be completed in nine months. Your mother and step-father will have to initiate the process, and your father will need to be contacted. If he won't consent, then the adoption won't happen unless your mother gets a court to have his parental rights terminated. Whether that is possible isn't apparent from your post -- among other reasons, because you didn't identify your state.
  14. You didn't say how many folks are involved, but they may want to pool their resources and hire a local attorney to send the landlord a letter.
  15. As I wrote previously, the first thing to do is to contact her medical providers. If any given person has evidence that a doctor committed malpractice by prescribing a particular medication, that person or his/her successor in interest can file a medical malpractice lawsuit. I suggest you contact an attorney in Nevada to discuss your options.
