  1. So...you got a ticket for speeding. Right? Did you pay the ticket? Yes or no?
  2. Yours is a question that only "they" can answer intelligently. In what state did the incident occur?
  3. So...your horse got out, trespassed on your neighbor's property and was molesting the neighbor's horses. Got it.
  4. Ummm...no it doesn't. First of all, why in on Earth would you resurrect this 2 1/2 year old thread? The OP's situation has certainly resolved itself one way or the other by now. Second, neither the part of the statute you quoted or any other part has has anything to do with the OP's situation. The portion of the statute you quoted relates to operating vehicles in the course and scope of one's employment. It has nothing to do with an employee's personal motor vehicle breaking down. Read that and "weep" [sic].
  5. I don't understand this question at all. Why would your insurer (or you) give two hoots whether your neighbor removes the tree from on top of her house? As far as I can tell, your only concern is the damage to your fence. Since you didn't carry appropriate insurance, you'll have to pay to deal with that yourself. If you believe your neighbor is liable (i.e., if you believe that the tree fell because of your neighbor's negligence), then you can make a demand that she reimburse you (and she can punt your demand to her insurer) and, assuming she declines to do so, you'll have to sue her. Huh?
  6. I seriously doubt Tennessee or any other state allows folks to shoot horses (or any other animals) simply because the animal has gotten out of its cage/pen/stable/corral. That would be awfully absurd, don'tcha think? Do you have reason to believe your horse is likely to "get out" or that any neighbor is likely to shoot it if it does?
  7. This is awfully confusing. First you say that the "police entered my residence," but then you say that you were only visiting your boyfriend and didn't actually live there (not sure what "officially live there" might mean). You also said they were "looking for my landlord," but if you didn't live there, then it wasn't your landlord. I ask these questions not to nit pick; it is critically important to the legal issue you've raised. Also, in what state did this happen?

    Vaccine Waivers

    Who are "us"? What form are you talking about? Why is DHS involved in your situation, which you didn't describe in the slightest?
  9. No (or not necessarily). An arrest based on probably cause could not possibly be "false imprisonment." That the prosecutor elects not to file charges has no bearing on that. Then your fiance is a fool to allow his brother anywhere near his car. not all the time. You say yes; I say no.... "All the time" means that it's not an uncommon occurrence for a person to be arrested but eventually not charged. Any discussion of the specifics about how frequently it happens in any given area would be way beyond the scope of this forum and would require extensive research. I don't really care to engage in a discussion of hypotheticals. Feel free to call your county district attorney's office and see if one of the ADAs will speak in generalities with you.
  10. Which of the three people who responded are you addressing?
  11. You seem to have quoted the entirety of my prior response and then inserted additional information within the quote box. I'm not going to try and figure that out. However, here's some information about folks who commute 30+ miles by bicycle. I have no idea what you mean by the part I underlined. If the other driver admits to fault, her insurer will likely take that into account, but the insurer will make it's own decision about liability. The insured does not control that process. Nor do the police make any sort of binding determination about fault (police sometimes opine about fault in their reports, but if no cop witnessed the accident, the cop's opinion is largely meaningless). That the insurer offered you a rental car is certainly a good sign.
  12. The only possible answer to this question is yes. If you're thinking that one or more persons fitting this description will happen upon your post and offer you some anecdotal info, that's unlikely because that's not the purpose of these boards. Beyond that, your comment that you "feel like [you're] being punished" makes no sense at all. Your spouse is free to "fight" for whatever he/she wants, and you're free to do likewise. If, as happens in most cases, you enter into a settlement, then whatever results will happen because of your voluntary agreement. Only if you don't settle and force the court to decide the issue will you have something thrust upon you and that you don't agree with. However, even if that happens, no one will "punish[] [you] for being a teacher."
  13. This was explained in rather excruciating detail in response to the thread you started under a different name at another site.
  14. How do you know the other car was going above the speed limit? Only an accident reconstruction expert can opine intelligently about this. I suppose that depends on what one means by "steady." Yellow lights certainly last for a short duration. Doesn't really matter what the police think. What will matter is what your insurance company and the other driver's insurance company think. It will also matter whether you disclosed to your insurance company that you would be using the vehicle for commercial purposes and obtained appropriate insurance coverage (of course, if you were driving a company vehicle, that won't be an issue, but it doesn't sound like that was the case). Well...I suspect it's accurate that anyone will be able to tell that the other car was going above 10mph, but I doubt it's true that your car's speed will be ascertainable (but again, only an accident reconstruction expert can opine intelligently about this). I'm guessing it is unlikely that anyone will dispute that you were starting up from a stop, but that doesn't preclude the possibility that you started before you had the green light. Legally, it's irrelevant. Then I hope you were carrying collision coverage. You don't have buses where you live or you don't have a bicycle? As you worded this sentence, it doesn't make much sense, and we obviously have no ability to opine intelligently about the weight of evidence that you've merely summarized.
  15. Where did the dealer "put" this? When you test drove the car, did it have remote, keyless entry? Did the sales contract mention remote keyless entry or incorporate whatever it was that the dealer "put" this on? Why did you accept delivery of the vehicle without the key fob? After delivery, when you called the dealer to inquire about this, what response did you receive? In what state did the sale occur (and, if different, in what states are you and the dealer located)?
  16. Parents don't typically sign birth certificates. However, when a child is born to an unmarried woman, it is typically impossible for a man to be identified on the birth certificate as the father unless both the father and mother have signed an acknowledgment of paternity. Did you do that for either or both of the kids? If so, then your paternity is established. However, in the absence of a court order regarding custody and visitation, you have no enforceable parental rights. I have no idea what you mean by "the child support." Child support is money paid by one parent to the other. You cannot meet with "child support."
  17. I agree with the prior response, but it's worth pointing out that the intended effect in NC may not be what happens in IN. You need a divorce attorney in Indiana to represent your interests. Otherwise, you're at the mercy of your husband and his attorney and the court in which the case is filed.
  18. There is no way for anyone to answer this question intelligently with no detail about what happened. However, since it may be obvious from looking at the vehicle whether it is or isn't an XLT, it's possible that it's not for that reason. When you contacted the dealer to discuss the issue, what happened?
  19. Not sure what sort of response you're expecting. These are message boards. If you have a question, someone may be able to answer it. Also, FYI, public defenders are attorneys.
  20. In any future posts, please make a better effort to use proper capitalization and punctuation (throughout the whole post). Doing so will make it easier for others to read and understand. Huh? To the extent I could follow your post, I agree with the prior response.

    New owner of what? What state?
  22. These questions make little sense. People get arrested and then are not charged all the time for lots of reasons. It's not like the cops refrain from making arrests until they are sure that the prosecutor will file charges. "We"? This has nothing to do with you. And whom do you suppose you might sue? As I already told you, the prosecutor has until the statute of limitations expires to file charges. Your fiance committing another crime would not generally provide evidence of the crime for which he was arrested (and, of course, if you think your fiance is likely to commit crimes, why would you stay engaged to him?). Ummm...the OP mentioned two crimes: "possession" and "felon with a firearm." While the OP didn't mention what is being possessed, it could easily be "possession" of small quantities of drugs for personal use. That hardly has "a high probability of being" a felony in any state and most certainly is a "basic crime."
