    The obligation to submit to the urine test is not directly related to the charges. As a condition of acquiring the privilege of driving you agreed to take a test and agreed to give up your license if you refused. The suspension of your right to drive is administrative and not criminal.
  2. It doesn't matter whether the loan is listed on the schedules or not. If the creditor was aware of the debt and if the omission of the debt does not cause injury to the creditors, it is discharged.
  3. If you are looking for some legal definition of carpet life I think you will be disappointed. If it were me I would rent a steamer and give it a once over.

    Your license was suspended because you refused the urine test. That has nothing to do with whether you were convicted or acquitted. Your acquittal occurred, at least partially, because you refused the test, which was objectively reasonable given the narration of the crash. I don't see what basis you would have for appeal.
  5. In reading the initial post, it seems the company does not require the employee to reveal any of the information listed. It authorizes the company to collect and store the information.
  6. "Writing off" debts does not necessarily mean the debt is forgiven. It is basically a bookkeeping function that removes the debt from the list of court assets. However, the debt can still be collected, for instance, by collection agencies which purchase the debts for pennies on the dollar. Of course, the order you posted only applies to public defender fees anyway.
  7. It would be a big help if you would read what you have written before posting it because it makes no sense.
  8. If the missing pin is really an iron pipe, which it usually will be, you may find it with a metal detector through the asphalt.
  9. Probably nowhere. Leases are not filed anywhere accessible to the public. Why did you post your question on a totally unrelated thread?
  10. Depends on the terms of the lease. It is not at all uncommon for a tenant to be required to pay all insurance and taxes. The flood insurance is intended to protect the property owner from loss or damage and is properly paid to the property owner. I.e. the landlord. The lease-purchaser is not the owner unless and until the end of the lease.
  11. Whether the witness committed perjury in a prior case was probably ruled inadmissible during the trial and ordered stricken from the record. Prior bad acts are not admissible unless they demonstrate a pattern. So your transcript was not illegally altered
  12. I keep a spray bottle full of water near the grill when I'm grilling fatty foods in case there is a flare. Water is not the best solution for grease fires but It does subdue the flames a little. I would prefer not to.use a fire extinguisher. Did your grease fire continue to burn even after you left the grill alone? Did you determine where the flames were coming from?
  13. Wait! You are going to tell the judge you were falling asleep at the wheel so you drove faster! Seriously!
  14. If your case involves uncontested liability and reasonably appropriate and necessary medical cost of over twice the policy limits. and documented long term pain and suffering there are few adjusters who would not throw in the limits This is especially true where the limits are as low as $15,000. I suspect your case has a problem somewhere
  15. Not clear. Is your friend living in the house where you rented space? Where is "here" as in "when I got here"? Did you live in the house prior to the lockout? What does helping your friend have to do with anything?
  16. We know very little about your case except that you were rear ended and claim 32k in medical bills. There must be some problem with the case if the insurer is not throwing in its policy limits. Not doing so exposes their insured to a possible huge excess verdict. What explanation did the adjuster give you for disregarding the medical expense?
  17. Some one probably will.
  18. The bondsman, sometimes called a bounty hunter, is authorized to use reasonable force to arrest and bring the defendant to court. In Arkansas: "ยง 16-84-114 - Surrender of defendant. .b) (1) For the purpose of surrendering the defendant, the surety may obtain from the officer having in his or her custody the bail bond or recognizance a certified copy thereof, and thereupon at any place in the state may arrest the defendant." if the defendant believes there is an error, he or she should take that up with the judge after he or she is returned to the court.
  19. The "first sale doctrine" only applies if you purchased the item from the trademark owner. It clearly does not apply if you are selling counterfeit articles. That leads me to suspect you do not
  20. You may be granted spousal support. Your spouse may be required to provide you with health care insurance, if she can reasonably afford to do so. You will be entitled to part of the marital assets. Upon termination of a marriage the court's focus, and essentially only legal focus, is division of assets and income. The fact that you are disabled may enter into your need for support and health insurance. That is about as far as your wife's responsibility and your rights extend. Divorce almost always results in anger, but anger does not increase the rights of the abandoned spouse.
  21. I have no idea what you are trying to say. Please proof read before posting and try to use a little punctuation. Your posts are very hard to interpret.
  22. The judge orders the bond forfeited. Then the bondsman tries to have the bond reinstated by hauling you up before the court. Interestingly, a bondsman, and his agents, is not usually bound by the constitutional restraints that may apply to the police. Don't mess with a bondsman. It is not the responsibility of the bondsman to inform you of your court dates.
  23. If the collateral is real property, you could start a foreclosure action. However, it would depend on whether the handwritten promissory note would constitute a valid mortgage. I'm betting it won't. If the collateral is personal property, such as a car, it may be possible to take possession. Again, it depends on how the security agreement is written. I suggest you consult an attorney who can review the situation and the document.
  24. A spouse leaving his or her spouse is certainly not a criminal act. It would allow the deserted spouse to file a divorce action or an action for spousal support, depending on the circumstances. That the deserted spouse is disabled may enter into the spousal support equation.
  25. A quick survey of Wyoming bond conditions indicates a typical bond condition in Laramie County, for example, is: "THE DEFENDANT shall not leave Laramie County, Wyoming without prior approval of this Court and shall maintain contact with his attorney." See, https://www.laramiecounty.com/_officials/DistrictCourtClerk/posting_a_bond.aspx However, I had one case where the judge agreed to stay the case on condition the defendant "get the he-- out of our city and never return." He came back and got a year in jail for stealing a six pack of beer from a 7-11.
