  1. My son is about to be sentenced on felony charges. The person that bailed my son out on these charges was sued by my son's sentencing judge for an accident that resulted in the judge being confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life. The judge lost all suits because the court ruled the accident was the judges fault. Isn't this a conflict of interest? Shouldn't the judge recuse himself from my son's case?

  3. Could I file a John Doe complaint in civil court, issue subpoena ducea tecum to find out the name and address of someone that posted a pic on facebook insulting my very young child just because they were pissed at me, then dismiss the case and then refile in Small Claims on my child's behalf (and myself for copyright violation)? I have Guardian status to file suits for him. Also, how long does a company (like facebook) have to remove a photo under dmca? Thanks.
  4. Hi, I signed a contract with my apartments, only to be told more than a month later, the amount for my rent was $25 less than it should be. They have told me I am required to sign a new contract and I owe for the $25 I didn't pay for July. Am I required to sign? Or are they out of luck? Second question is, am I required to help pay an additional $10 per month for their building insurance? I was told the additional was to cover their building, but not my things. Isn't that what's suppose to be figured into rent payments? I definitely do not plan to renew next summer. Thank you
  5. I wanted to take his ass to small claims court for what he did to me but the police won't give me his name/address. Can I file against a John Doe and Subpoena dices tecum the cops? (I don't think they allow Does in S.C. but not sure). Any other ideas? TY!!
  6. I was awarded a $10,000 default judgment against a competitor (personally and her FFN). She does not have a business, only an FFN (Fictitious Firm Name). She personally filed a timely motion to set aside the default judgment. It was on her behalf only. The judge granted it today because the defendant "accidentally wrote the wrong hearing date on her calendar" (a bald-faced lie). Anyhow, two questions. Can I challenge my default against her FFN having been vacated since she never requested that it be vacated, only the one against her personally? Second, can I appeal the justice court's arbitrary and capricious decision to vacate my default judgment? Thank you.
  7. I have taken care of my niece for over 2 years with no help from her mother or father. Her mom wants her to come live with her next year but my niece doesn't want to live with her she really wants to stay with me. She is 11 years old and really loves living with me is there anything I can do to keep her with me June 2018 will be 3 years.
  8. My mom passed away July, 2016 and my brother and I are 50/50 on the living trust, which my mom's house is on. I live in California and the house is in Nevada. My brother lives in the house, but he isn't paying the property taxes, which have not been paid in close to three years. He is also not keeping up the maintenance, which is causing the house to deteriorate. I want out of this partnership because he is not a reasonable person and is refusing to pay his half of the property taxes. What can I do to force him to either pay me out my part, or sell the house?
  9. We were in Las Vegas staying at Treasure Island. On July 1st we came back to our hotel room after going out for lunch and discovered that someone had stolen some of our luggage (including the contents inside), a backpack, car keys, jewelry, and other valuables. We contacted the front desk and security. We completed an incident report and itemized all of our losses (including the estimated cost of each item). In total, the lost items totaled $2,600. We had 2 rooms (adjoining) and we noted that when we left our room (to go to lunch) , one room was clean and one wasn't. When we returned to our room and noticed the theft, both rooms were clean which means housekeeping was in our room while we were out. We received a certified letter from Treasure Island today stating that the found no negligence on the part of the hotel therefore they denied our claim. We fully intend to contact an attorney (we live in the California, Bay Area) however any insight/input regarding our case would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  10. Hello. How long do I have to file suit against my ex-landlord for the return of my security deposit? I cannot find the statute of limitations ANYWHERE. Thank you. dr_sn0w
  11. I have a 2014 hybrid vehicle that has had several problems with hybrid system. The dealership that has done the repairs has always given me a hard time and tried to cheat me out of my warranty coverage. The last time the hybrid system warning came on and the car died, I again had it towed in to the dealership and the service manager tells me that my engine seized from sludge, even though it was the hybrid system warning that came on again - never did the engine light come on or the oil light and I had an oil change only a month prior and he made no mention of sludge then. Incidentally, my hybrid system is still under warranty, but the engine is not. I was told it would cost me around $7000 to put a new engine in, which I can't afford to do, My car stayed there for a month while I tried to figure out what to do about my lease because I found out that it would cost me close to 3 times the car's original worth to give it back and terminate my lease. I finally had it towed out of there to my house. I was planning to tow it to another dealership to have a second diagnosis, but I dfiscovered that the service manager had kept my $500 battery that I had just bought a month before. I got the battery back from him only to discover that he also kept my active air flap system, which he has admitted to but won't pay for my car to be towed back to put it back on. I also discovered that he has done something to my brake system, though I do not know what, exactly. I have no way of knowing what else he tampered with or took out of my vehicle so I can't even get a second opinion with major parts missing and potentially more issues than the ones I have discovered so far. I can't really afford to hire an attorney because I have still been paying my lease payments on a worthless car so I don't go into default and have no standing. Any suggestions on where I should start with this? BBB Complaint Form.cf (2).rtf
  12. How do I have someone prosecuted for perjury?? I have their statement under oath in the form of a certified court reporter's transcript and I have video proving otherwise. I went to the police station but they ignored me after treating me like I was stupid. Thank you.
  13. A black punk 20-30 years old, 160-200 lbs got out of his car, angry at me. Apparently he thought I had called him the N word because he was screaming "call me a n****r again, b*tch!!!" over and over again. He ended up punching me in the jaw and throwing his drink all over me, ruining my vest and souring my clothes. He then threw a can of something at my vehicle as he drove away. My car paint is damaged, my jaw is too, drink got on my lips which scares me, and all over the inside of my vehicle. My high def dash cam wasn't working very well, maybe the heat, but it got some vague characters on his plates. Thing is his front plates were definitely Cali I got the first 4 with my own eyes, for sure, and the back was like oregon or nevada plates. I filed a police report, they are making me wait two weks before they will even look at it. What else can I do to ensure I get justice?? I have no medical insurance and two urgent care centers have turned me away for lack of funds. I have med pay and uninsured coverage on my vehicle but he punched me with his fist when I got out of my car. Also, was I free to knock him out, stun or pepper spray his face, (after he punched me) in hindsight? Thank you.

  16. My landlord presented me with an addendum to my lease which I signed. It required I secure certain professional services for upkeep, extended the notice requirement to 45 days, and increased the rent. I signed it. I later discovered that the effective date did not allow proper notice (60 days to increase rent, 30 days to change the provisions of the lease) according to our state's statutes. Is this addendum binding, as it doesn't conform to statute?
  17. First, if I sue somebody and then their bond expires a month later and I get a judgment a month & 1.5 mo Las Vegas, NV | June 7, 2017 1.5 month after that I get a judgment, it should still be covered by the bond, right? Kinda like insurance, it covers the date of the wrong? (I sued in March, her bond expired in April, I got judgment in May). Second, do I write the bond company and politely ask them to pay and attach a copy of the bond? Or would they then just attempt to appeal it since it was a default judgment for $10,000 in small claims court and the bond is for $10,000? Thanks.
  18. Hello. Do I need to file a fictitious firm name if I am giving my customers (the only people I could forseeably have any liability towards) my full, real name?? I don't think so. Like I have a license by the state under my name to notarize documents and everyone I notarize for has my full name stamped clearly on their documents so technically I use a real name. I thought FFN's were only for utilizing names other than your own. However, what if I make up a company name and use both, alongside one another (always still giving my real name to customers). Then might I need it? I dont make much money would rather not spend what I do have, if possible. Thank you.
  19. First time using this website so Im not sure that Im doing this right. My question is can a landlord tell tenants that they can only smoke cigarettes inside of their apartments with the door closed. They will not smoke in front of their unit where they have their patio chairs or any where other than the inside of their own unit. Their will no longer be ashtrays outside of their apartments. I might add that this is a government apartment complex for seniors or disabled people, and their rent is based on their income. Some of these tenants have lived here for 10 or more years.
  20. This past Saturday I parked with no cars on either side of my vehicle. I opened my door and started to exit when I saw a car starting to pull in it didn't appear to stop. I started closing my door, it was also a windy day, I wasn't able to close it on time before the drivers vehicle hit the side of my door causing my door to scrap the side of his passenger door. The driver still didn't come to a stop, I waited for the driver to finish parking when he came out of his vehicle he said he didn't see me and didn't think anyone was inside my vehicle. He told me he just drove into town and was late for an appointment and didn't seem to care about his damage. He started to walk away and I walked along side him and provided him my information and he took off and didn't give me any of his information. I spoke to an officer who told me its private property and he can't take my statement and I would have to wait for the other driver to contact my insurance. A few days pass and my insurance calls saying the other driver filed a claim saying he was fully parked when I swung my door open. My insurance said that I am at fault since my door hit his car. I asked how when my door was already open and there was no car beside me I had already started to exit my vehicle when he started pulling in. As soon as I saw him I went to close my door and he never stopped to allow me enough time to close my door fully. My question is who is at fault? I read the law in NV and it does say you're not supposed to open your door if it's not safe, but at the time I opened my door there was no vehicle so how am I supposed to predict that a vehicle would start to pull in and not allow me enough time to close my door so it's safe for him to continue to proceed.

  23. I was refinancing a condominium last year and had all paperwork complete, in fact, my entire refinance file was complete, except for the questionnaire to my HOA. The property management company failed to fill out a couple of questions on the broker's questionnaire to them and instead wrote in " we do not track this information" The questions were in regard to 1)the number of units that were owner occupied and 2)the number of units that were rented. Those two questions were not filled out. I made several phone calls to the association, then a letter to the president of the board (I was denied my request for his phone number), and received the same response, "sorry we do not track that information". I had my broker call to talk to the president and the owner of the property management company just before one of our board meetings so he could save time and talk to them both. They both said the same thing again. He re-enforced the importance that Freddie Mae and Freddie Mac must have these two questions answered or they will not accept the refinance file. Again they both said, "no, we do not have that information". I asked the owner of the property management company for my money back ($160 submitted for them to complete the form) which was swiftly refused stating "we filled out the form to the best of our ability". To me it wasn't about the money, it was the fact that my loan could not be submitted without this information. I told her, I was not a cash buyer, and needed a lower interest loan while rates our down. That I would benefit enormously if this could be done. I told her this piece of information is the only thing holding this refi up. She didn't really care. This year, I am trying again and inquired in advance, emailing them the form that my current broker is using. Now I have found that they are having everyone report to them if they are currently renting their property. I received the HOA email request myself. Apparently the CC&Rs state that each owner must report to the HOA if they are renting their property and be able to show the contract. I checked and this requirement was in effect last year. What do you think of how my HOA and board president represented our homeowners? Did they know their job is to enforce the CC&Rs and if that had been done they would have been able to answer those two simple questions? The expenses I was out to process the refinance last year were the appraisal fees and the HOA fee for filling out the form? I would have paid more if the loan had gone through obviously, but it didn't. I'm sure the financial institute was out a lot more than I was. Do you think the HOA or property management company owes me for the expenses I incurred? And for the difference that I have lost in interest fees since I was not able to finance last year because of their error? Or more? Or simply an apology? What do you think? Is this worth going to small claims court or just drop it and move on?
  24. Here I go again... Today, the Trump campaign filed a lawsuit pertaining to the way that Clark County Nevada stayed open late on Saturday night. Allegedly, not only was everyone in line at the time the polls closed allowed to vote, but some stragglers were also allowed to cast ballots. While there are specific provisions in Nevada Law regarding poll closings on "Election Day" (Nevada statute 293.273) there are no such hard and fast rules regarding early voting (see Nevada statute 293.3576 ). The election day times are set in stone, and only the people in line at the time the polls close on election day can vote, The early voting rules specify only the times that the sites must be open -- there are no rules regarding what happens after the scheduled closing times each day. So my question is, is the early voting statute written so broadly that it can accommodate giving election officials broad discretion to allow "late arrivals" to vote during early voting? (My uninformed opinion: While there is very good administrative reasons why polls must be closed at a certain time on election day, those reasons do not hold for early voting. And the given that the purpose of early voting is to make voting easier/more accessible, discretion would seem to be consistent with the purpose of the statutes.)
  25. Where can I find a list of forms needed to allow me to be representative/file probate for my mom who recently passed away. She was indigent at the time of death, no estate, no will. What I need specifically are her medical records and I need the legal authority to obtain legal council on behalf of the decedent regarding the cause of her death. My mom lived in Reno, Nevada and I in Columbus, Ohio, at the time of her death. I need medical records from both states, so I assume that I would need to file for probate in each state. To further complicate the matter I may not be able to file and estate/probate in Nevada as I am not a resident . I do have an aunt there who I can co administer with, but prefer if I can, to not have to do that. I am the only child of my mom, she has 1 brother and two sisters living, and my two sons, her grandchildren as far as next to kin goes.
