  1. Unless they are doing it on a portion of the property that was leased to you (is it?), it certainly does not violate any "right to privacy." As far as your "quiet enjoyment," it's not clear how/why this is a problem. No, and no one here can intelligently comment on things you've read but we haven't.
  2. The first thing you'll need to do is domesticate your North Carolina judgment in Kansas pursuant to the Uniform Enforcement of Foreign Judgments Act, which has been enacted as section 60-3001, et seq. of the Kansas Statutes. Wage garnishment appears to be covered in section 60-701, et seq., but this sort of thing is not typically a good DIY project -- esp. in another state.
  3. We obviously have no way of knowing if the police have a reason to be surveilling his residence. Also, just because he hasn't paid you yet doesn't make the speakers "your speakers" or give you a right to repossess them. If you did what you suggest here, without permission from your friend, you would be committing one or more crimes.
  4. You sold the building despite having pledged it as collateral? That you sold the building has little or no bearing on which Chapter you file under. Discuss with the bankruptcy attorney you hire which Chapter is better for you.
  5. That's an illogical and silly analogy. An attorney is entitled to make a demand based on information provided by the client unless the information provided clearly does not support the existence of the debt or is suspicious in some way. That's obviously a far cry from convicting a defendant based solely on hearsay from the prosecutor. If the attorney doesn't get a satisfactory response to the demand, then the attorney may file suit on the client's behalf and, in order to obtain a judgment, the client must prove the debt with admissible evidence. But a demand letter is a far cry from a civil judgment or criminal conviction.
  6. In all fairness, I don't know any lawyers who studied the constitutional requirements to be president in law school, but it's obviously something the OP or anyone with internet access (or a paper copy of the Constitution) can look up.
  7. The FRCP are readily available in any number of places on the internet, including here. Up to you. It will be available at any county law library in California. I understand you're not in California, but you may need to make at least one or two trips to California in order to prosecute your case effectively. In the abstract, no. If you won't at least try to do your own research, you may as well dismiss your lawsuit now. At a bare minimum, you can google things like "what is quasi contract?"
  8. Obviously, we have no way of knowing what you're talking about. What issues? Have you considered that "the lack of news in this regard" means these issues aren't as obvious as you think? What proceedings? Which rights? Which citizens?
  9. Can he? Of course he can. Any reason you might have thought the answer would be otherwise? Why would you think buying a home for you might result in "breaking any laws"?
  10. "Their" is a plural pronoun, so to whom does it refer in the context of this sentence? The minor and someone else? The minor's parents? Or did you misuse "their" and intend to use "his" or "her" instead? If you intended to say "his own money" or "her own money," what exactly does that mean? What is the relationship, if any, between the minor and this other person? Your statement that the minor lives on this other person's property doesn't really help our understanding. Of course, anyone can steal just about anything, so I'm not really sure what you're intending to ask.
  11. There's no such thing as "prenatal rights." Perhaps you meant to write "parental rights," but then what would a "stipulated reversal of parental rights" mean? Compounding the ambiguity in your question, you provided no relevant facts and didn't identify the relevant state.
  12. It's not multiple defendants. A sole proprietorship is not a legal entity and has no legal existence separate from its owner. You'd be suing a single defendant, David Jones, in two capacities: as an individual and doing business as Lousy Window Treatments, Inc. The reason for doing that is that the defendant may maintain a bank account under the name of the sole proprietorship. If you have a judgment only against David Jones, you may not be able to levy successfully on the account without a further court order. But if you have a judgment against "David Jones, individually and dba . . .," then you won't need anything further.
  13. New Jersey has some incredibly punitive usury laws (as does New York). For starters, you waive interest if your contracted rate exceeds the legal maximum. Perhaps more importantly, it is a crime to "[t]ake[], agree[] to take, or receive[] any money or other property as interest on the loan or on the forbearance of any money or other interest in excess of the maximum rate permitted by law." I suggest you consult with a local attorney ASAP.
  14. FWIW, in my 25+ years in the legal field, I've never heard of a "supplemental complaint" (other than as something referenced in an obscure part of FRCP 15) I would suggest that you look at the Moore's Federal Practice and Wright & Miller treatises (both of which should be available in any county law library). That said, I don't know what you mean by "refile the supporting documents and reiterate the issues." Complaints sometimes have exhibits, but I've never heard of a complaint having "supporting document." Presumably, a supplemental complaint would be identical to the current complaint but with additional allegations regarding the "transaction, occurrence, or event that happened after the date of the pleading [being] supplemented." The sentence above doesn't exactly make grammatical sense (the "motion is exactly that it supplements the complaint it need not . . ."???). Your motion would make argument about why the supplemental complaint is needed, and you would attach the proposed supplemental complaint as an exhibit to the motion (of course, you should thoroughly review the court's local rules and the assigned judge's chambers rules/standing order).
  15. Doesn't really change anything. You contracted with him and want to get your deposit back. Of course, if he "disappeared," then you'll have a problem serving him with the small claims papers and, probably, an even bigger problem trying to collect when/if you win. I've already answered that question. If the individual represented that he was doing business as "Lousy Window Treatments, Inc.," there appears to be no good reason not sue sue "David Jones, individually and doing business as Lousy Window Treatments, Inc."
