  1. I was a Tenured professor going through a custody battle with my Ex-wife while she was in a drug rehab facility. For leverage she went to my employer and made false claims about equipment purchases for my laboratory at the university claiming I stole $100K. The University launched an investigation and took pre-emptive actions, I lost a grant because of their actions and they denied me due process, so I threatened a lawsuit and we settled and they paid me about $100K in the settlement. During the settlement I resigned and both sides released all claims against the other. There was no criminal charge and no restitution sought. At this point you might think everything is settled. A year later after the settlement I was arrested out of the blue for the same issue. The police/DA office were not even aware of the settlement agreement and the University was not seeking any restitution, but the DA wanted to make a political show about being tough on white collar crime. This led to an arrest and mugshot and release on PR bond same day. The local newspaper was given the mugshot same day by the DAs office and they ran a slanderous article repeating the allegations and the mugshot. After they ex parte subpoenaed all my financial bank records they could find NOTHING to substantiate the allegations, so 6 months and $50K in Defense attorney fees later they drop felony 3 charges and I plead a deal to a minor Misdemeanor 3 theft (less than $300 ) in a 6 months deferred sentence with no restitution and no punishment of any kind, just court costs. After 6 months the records were sealed and no criminal record or arrest exists. But now whenever I do business or apply for a job and people Google me they find this "news" article and mugshot. What can I do to get the article and mugshot removed? The newspaper ran an article initially when charges were made, then they ran the same article and mugshot after my plea to misdemeanor. Essentially they had the opportunity to correct their original article in fair way but instead just doubled down. Thus the media company won't remove it. Google won't take it off of their search results. It has been 4 years and although the arrest record links cited in the article are gone and the university audit links are gone as part of the records sealing the false article remains. Now the 45 scientific articles I have published are overshadowed by this slanderous article that returns in the top of google search with my name. This article has effectively ruined my academic career. Advice?

    Over paid time.

    I have been getting paid for an hour lunch but now my boss says I was only supposed to get paid for 30 min. And want me to pay the company back. Can they make me if I haven't signed anything. And quit.
  3. Starting off young as an aspiring NAVY SEALs at a very young age from the get go I have learned strict fundamentals by the book. At this age I am advanced to an extremely with fire arms, fire arm safety and tactical survival etc. I’d been write a book. I am not exaggerating. Anyway to the meat of what’s happened to me. Weeks ago I’d been invited by relatives visiting from out of town, to join them for dinner at what I believed to be a restaurant for various reasons. Was a very last minute decision, so I ubered there. When I arrived to find that it wasn’t a restaurant at all it was a stupid dance club. Top it off the food was gone and everyone was readying themselves to go home. Making the best of it I spent the little time I had to greet and say hello. In no time we were all leaving, in which I rushed out for my cousin to drive me home. Remembering I’d forgotten some expensive belongings it took a half hour to get back and retrieve my things. The bouncers did recognize me right when I walked in and without any hesitation started to Physically remove me from the building as if I wanted back in for free. I did let them know that all I wanted were my belongings and to be on my way. Why they refused to allow me back my things is beyond my comprehension. Keep in mind I a very mellow guy so I did try to negotiate them to allow me my things, which they simply would not have. After so much effort all I could do was look them in the eye with sure frustration and disbelief. (A week before that someone had stolen $800 of my bank card which was in my belongings so I wasn’t leaving without.). I did not raise my voice, I didn’t get in anyone’s face or touch any of them, or cause any scene at all what so ever. Not yelling and spitting in their faces. But one immediately became more aggressive as far as pushing me out the front door. In my mind I thought okay these guys are gonna rudly push me out the front door and tell me not to come back in. In which case I would have called the police. To my complete utter disbelief once he backed me outside he immediately slammed me on the ground while 5-6 other bouncers who didn’t even know what was happening proceeded to beat me and do their absolute best to injure me as violently and hard as possible. I was completely blindsided as I couldn’t understand what was going on. I did everything I could to saying who I’m not trying to fight you why are you doing this?! Absolute strangers in the parking lot and coming from inside the club were screaming at them to stop, including my cousin. Eventually one realizes that I’m armed and I could hear him say “oh sh#! He’s got a gun!” I replied I always have a gun I’m licensed I’m not trying to fight or hurt you. I just want my stuff! I ordered my cousin to call the police now! While the bouncer copied and yelled for his side to call the police. They seemed to have arrived in half a minute. As the pressure of my skull, ankle bones and rib cage being crushed on pavement began to lift I felt so relieved when I felt handcuffs gently click around my wrists. I felt rescued from death. And the officer gently lifted me into the back of a police unit. The officers actually were very easy with me. I asked him why I was being arrested and he replied “carrying a firearm why intoxicated” that I was NOT intoxicated. I one walked up to the back window and said don’t worry it’s just a misdemeanor, you’ll be or by tonight. Then the driver said oh you’ll get your things back. I’ve been on Pre-trial services ever since. The official charge being WEAPONS MISCONDUCT!?! I never got a breathalyzer no UA and no blood test at all. During an eye to eye conversation with the officer I asked him sir I seem intoxicated to you?? He was so unsure! He said uhhh yea a little. Later on when he got sick of talking he abruptly read me my rights and I stopped talking. Oh and by the way I’m African American. You guys I’m so so hurt and destroyed and depressed. I can’t eat and I cannot sleep. I feel like my aspirations were destroyed by some rowdy bouncers who just wanted to beat up on someone. I have worked and trained so so very hard for many years, spending an absolute fortune on training and highest quality gear and supplies. I don’t know what will happen to me. I feel betrayed. I just can’t believe n understand just exactly how this could happen to me with absolutely no good reason for it. I’ve been armed 95% of 4 and a half years, during witch I’ve had people push me, punch me, a couple brawls won some and lost some when I’ve had to, people say to me racial slurs n things I don’t like you name it and to this very day these people don’t have a clue. It’s a discipline. And that my friends is what makes ME feel tough and like a real man. And now my life is being destroyed?! I’m terrified and lost. How can they accuse me of intoxication based on what exactly? I’m so hurt right now.

    Felony trespassing

    What is the law in Colorado for felony tresspassing?
  5. I'm currently serving 2 years probation for my first dui in Jefferson county. Iv been on probation for about 5 months with 1 missed drug test due to a long work day and no way to get to a testing facility on a snow day. Iv been almost completely compliant and should be done with all my requirements by late November, early December. A little earlier than the one year mark. Iv been reading online and a lot of counties will let you off probation early if you finish everything and follow all the rules, but everyone in my alcohol class has been saying that Jefferson county does not follow that. Including my teacher who hasn't seen anyone if Jefferson county get off in 4 years being here. No matter what you have to finish the whole amount of time. So I was wondering if I could transfer my probation to another county and have a better chance of getting off early, or if I would still have to go infront of the Jefferson county judge come December. And if it would give me a better chance, how far would I have to move, would I still have to follow Jefferson county probation rules if I didn't get off early, and what plays into me being able to transfer. My lease is up in July and if moving over one county or two wasn't far enough than another option would be to move to my parents about 3 hours away.( don't want to give the area incase that is what I should go for) Sorry this is a lot and probably very confusing to most and not worded the right way at all, but I just want to get off probation as soon as I can and Jefferson county is not the best place for that. Thank you too all who read or look at this post and hopefully this keeps me out of moving to my parents for no reason. Cheers.
  6. My sister and I inherited a house together. The plan was to rent the house and share the rental income. But she moved in instead, without any consultation. She claims she can do this legally and she does not have to ask my permission to live in the house and she is not required to pay me any rent. Is this true? She has occupied the house for the last 8 1/2 years and has failed to get the property transferred out of my deceased fathers name.
  7. In 2008 my father died and left the house to my sister and I. She is the PR. it was determined that the house value was too low to sell at that time. So we both put in $10,000 for upgrades and repairs so that the house use could be rented, and thus my sister and i would share the rental income from the house. After such repairs and upgrades were completed, my sister moved into the house, without telling me. Effectively removing me from all potential rental income. At the time she told me that what she did was legal and she did not have to ask my permission take full possession of the house because she owned half. She has never paid me anything for the nine years she has lived in the house. Now she wants to "settle the house". The estate has not been probated at this time. My question is this: Since she broke a verbal agreement to rent the house, would the courts award me the money I have lost in the nine years she has been living in the house for free? Or am I out of that money forever?

    Motion To

    I'm trying to find out if my husband has hidden assets. (Asbestos Claim) It was filed several years ago. The impression that I got from the judge is that I need to file a Motion To. The only Motion To is either a basic one which I've done in the past and I was denied. So, why would I use a Motion To again? I'm sure that you'll ask me some more questions. I await your response. Thank you in advance.
  9. My employer is now going to implement a 'Working spouse surcharge ($100 monthly) for a spouse/domestic partner who has medical coverage available through their employer but then remains on my employer health coverage plan. Is this even legal? is it not discrimination to pay more for the same family coverage plan against the person who has a non-working spouse? heck, why not now add a multi-child surcharge, should not the family of 4, 5 or more be charged more for their potential medical claims?
  10. On May 13th 2016 WalmaryMoneyCard/Greendot Bank accepted my emplyers direct deposit int my account. On Monday May 15th I attempted to pull out some cash from an ATM I had used numerous times previously. I was told the bank declined my transaction. I went home and called customer support. I was told there was nothing wrong with my card or my account and the probems were doe to them running a system upgrade but could not give me an ETA on when the upgrade would be finished. I told them I had to have access to my funds in order to be able to purchase my wifes insulin. She is a type 1 diabetic and prone to ketacidosis. I also explained to them that I needed access to my funds in order to save my 1994 Harley Davidson Sportster 1200 motorcycle from the pawnshop. I also explained that without access to my funds, I would love a2 rifles, a shotgun and a pistol to a different pawnshop. I was told they were sorry for the inconvenience. I told them y wife would most likely be in the hospital very soon if I could not access my account and asked if they could overnight me a card that would work. I was told they cannot do that and they again apologised for the inconvenience. I think they should be criminally charged with reckless endangerment. They are definitely in breach of contract where it says direct deposits will be available the same day if not the 2nd day. I went through this for another 8 or 9 days until finally on May 24th I was able to activate my card via the online site. If there was nothing wrong with my card, why did I need to activate it? I finally got with a supervisor and was told they needed the receipts for ths items I lost. I gave them the pawn tickets and such ony to never hear from them again. The email address was *******.com. Supposedly their corporate headquarters. I was not the only person to be so treated. I explained to the corporate folks that did finally call me that they were in breach of contract and needed to make me whole again only to be told flat out they would not pay. The exact same thing happened to the owners of RushCard prepaid cards and they are now paying a 19 million class action settlement. I had pawned my stuff as I was waiting for my short term disability and was hoping to pull all items out of pawn on the 15th. I called them and pushed the timeframe to the 22nd of May. I was told the upgrade to the system was completed on May 19th. this was a total falsehood as I still could not use my card or access my account online. I have the pawn tickets scanned in as well as the price to replace the items. This makes no mention of what my insurance agency had to pay out for the hospitalization of my wife for 6 days sue to diabetic ketoacidosis directly caused by her not having her insulin. The folks that I spoke with hept pointing to the 4 charges made on my account on the 16th, the 20th, the 21st, and the 23rd as proof that I had access. All those charges were made as an automatic charge to my account but that specific card had expired May of 2016 and had a completely different security code and should not have been allowed in the first place. I could not take these documents to the pawn shos as I had no transportation nor could I afford a taxi without access to my funds. All I want is to be made whole and have Greendot/Walmart Money card relace the items I lost due to thier system upgrae. The entire thing could have been prepared for had greendot done some research and found out the RushCard fiasco. There was absolutely no warning that I may not be able to access my funds. Also, their very own terms and conditions state that if I request binding arbitration, that they would deposit the funds necessary for me to even start the process. I have asked numerous times to start arbitration but never got a reply. They literaly held my money hostage, were criminally negligent to the tune of Reckless Endangerment by not allowing me access to my funds thus putting my wifes very life in jeapordy. I am seeking a total of $12,000 in both replacement prices for the items lost as well as damages for the time consumed in persuing this claim as well as them forcing me to walk to work each day vs riding my motorcycle as it should have been. I also have a broken l1 vertibrae and walking greatly agravates my back pain. I sent this to Greendot and have heard nothing back from them lately: Greendot Bank had the last clear chance to avoid any and all problems and damages on Friday May 20th 2016 by overnighting me a card that would allow me to access my funds no later than Saturday May 21st. Had this been done, I would have been able to keep my wife out of the hospital and get my motorcycle out of the pawnshop as well as retreiving all my other items from pawn or at the very least pay the interest due and not lose them. Thereby the initial and final causation and all faults plus damages lay with Greendot Bank, Greendot Bank is continuing to incur said damages and they will continue to compound until it is resolved and I am made 100% whole again as before their harms and damages. 20161005_cfpb_Final_Rule_Prepaid_Accounts.pdf Arbitration.pdf GPG_CLC_BCC_USA_Colorado.pdf GreenDot.txt charging-corps.PDF ComplaintNumber.txt Arbitration.pdf

    this can't be legal

    Can a property owner evict you even though your current in your rent because cider enforcement might shut the place down until electrical is up to code?. Seriously?. Is that legal to put someone out when yet haven't done anything to be evicted for?....It's the homeowner /property managers responsibility to have safe place for tenants to rent.... Why should we have evicted because of there necglance ?....I can't afford to move.... First and last month security deposit... I can't afford that... Do I have any rights?... Help please
  13. Hi. I am exercising an Early Lease Termination Option, where I pay a one-month fee to get out of the lease. My lease reads: :"When we [the leasing mgmt co] receive the written notice and payment [one month fee] and sign the notice, the Lease Termination Date is amended. The new termination date is the date specified in the notice". The leasing office is saying that because I'm executing an early termination, i am giving up my security deposit. My lease reads: "The Security Deposit is returned to you when all the following conditions are met: 1) Expiration of the Term; 2) Given a 60 day notice (and there are 3 more reasonable conditions). Do I have a solid legal argument that my written notice that is 60 days out, and the "Amended Termination Date" mentioned in the first section of this topic means that I've met the requirements and my security deposit must be returned to me? OR am i going to lose my security deposit because i'm not staying in the apartment through the original Term? Thanks
  14. This is tough. And the hope is to not ruffle family and friends and to remain as friends for life. Our daughter's live in boyfriend died suddenly recently. The home they lived in was owned by her boyfriend. I do not know if he had a will but suspect he did not. His family and mom live in the same city. The couple shared in paying the mortgage. The mom of our daughters boyfriend already took the boyfriends dog even though they both cared for him and has been over to the house taking items from the house and she has keys to the house. She the mother was also a business partner with our daughter's boyfriend. Some of the stuff she took was not hers but most likely a mistake and was of minimal value. She is a good person but this is just hurting our daughter in that people enter the house she lives in and take stuff. How do we handle this diplomatically. So the house is owned by the deceased boyfriend. What are our daughter's legal rights. How long can she stay here. They did pay the Oct mortgage bill. We so want this to work out amicably. But it seems like our daughter is being trampled on by the mother who seems to think she is the only person grieving. They even came over today and took some frozen food prepared by the boyfriend for a special tribute family meal. Our daughter and her boyfriend spent a lot of sweat equity in fixing up the house which he owned such as flooring, windows and painting but the cost of goods was paid for by the boyfriend. Thanks for thoughts.
  15. The so called master tenant failed to pay rent to landlord... Now he is personally trying to evict me because I refuse to give him any more money because he can't be trusted... He has received notice to be out by end of month... Can he evict me after he was served... When he's the whole reason we are being evicted to being with... I was current on my rent until he got the notice to comply.. Even after that I paid him again... but haven't since September 7 2016......because he never complied with the notice... Help
  16. If he purchases a brand new car during the divorce I know there is an automatic temporary injunction in effect. What can I do? Is there a law besides a Motion To: Also, In his sworn financial statement, there is an asbestos claim with a question mark. How would I go about asking the courts to give me the amount awarded?
  17. So i had purchased a vehicle from a car dealership (that has been certified by the Motor Vehicle Dealer Board) and the truck I purchased had a considerable amount of issues. Now I'm fully aware I was the one who had purchased a faulty vehicle and I take full responsibility for such, but when I went to register the vehicle initially, the dealership I purchased from hadn't paid the taxes on my vehicle yet which stopped me from registering it. Once they finally paid the taxes, I went back again and I learned they hadn't even emissions tested the vehicle. My question is, is there any legal recourse I can take to either.. 1) Give the vehicle back or 2) Get a refund on the vehicle seeing as it wasn't emissions tested and I have been driving around a vehicle that was sold to me on (what I believe to be) illegal terms. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance.

    Colorado Hit and Run

    My vehicle was parked in front of my residence (on the curb in front of my house) when a vehicle came across my neighbor's yard and slammed in to my car pushing it 15 feet into our driveway. The driver attempted to drive away but his truck was caught on the driver side of my vehicle between the running board and door. When he couldn't drive away he fled the scene on foot. Four of my neighbors watched him leave his truck and run. The authorities were called, a file was reported, and I was left with a totaled vehicle. The authorities called me a week later to let me know they had the info on the driver and his insurance information. When I received a copy of the police report I was shocked to see that the driver was only issued a careless driving citation. If I am correct, he fled the scene and should be charged with that. Yes, I am a bit miffed because my car was paid off and now I am stuck with a car payment for the next 5 years, (talk about a blow to the bank account) while the guilty party gets a ticket and loses 4 points, where is the justice? I am hoping someone on here can offer me some advice on how to go about having this driver charged with hit and run. I have contacted the officer assigned to my case, he is not responding and I have been told it is up to the officer on whether or not a charge for hit run should be filed.
  19. I had hail damage in COSPGS. On the morning of the 7-29, a very nice XXRoof rep came by offering free inspections and to meet with our adjusters w/ no obligation. He did a quick visual on our roof, and asked we signed what was explained as a non-obligatory form which would allow him to speak with our adjusters. He came back out on 8 August to talked to our adjuster. Then... nothing. No calls, no estimates, no nothing. Our insurance adjuster gave estimates based on his inspections and check has been issued (not cashed). The form turns out to be a Contingent agreement stating XX Roof will represent us and if agreeable price is approved by my insurance & accepted by XX Roof, then it becomes binding. There's also verbiage that if not cancelled in 72 hours, we must pay 15% of liquidated insurance proceeds. They have not done anything. I feel like the main character of the letters I'm getting daily now to avoid scams. Am I bound? This form has no timeframes, materials, etc. but payment would be amount of insurance approved/accepted by XXRoof. So a month later, here I am. No roof, not sure if I can go somewhere else... afraid to cash a check to complete other work I need done. Am I bound? The agreement seems to be voided by XXRoof due to non-action nor contact/communication. It almost seems like they're just waiting for me to tire an go to another company, then they'll come for 15%. The agreement also is not a work order. They are a large company, and perhaps they will void it... but I wanted to get some legal advice first. Maybe get an attorney??
  20. I am in a crunch. Terrible with research! How can I find the legal requirement for my husband, who has all of the income, to make the payments on my vehicle while we are going through the divorce process.

    Brand new to the site

    Hi everyone. I am brand new on here, not a law student, but taking an employment law course, and need to use this site for research. I am having trouble with the basic how-to search in this context. Internet searches I have no problem with, but here, every search term I use comes back as invalid. Any help on getting started would be appreciated.
  22. I have mentioned multiple times to the judge about some of the marital property assets. This includes tools, guns, etc. Each time the judge removes his items and his items only from the discussion. Anything that is mine remains. There also was an automatic temporary injunction which was supposed to take affect when the divorce started. This was ignored by him. There have been no repercussions by the judge. There also was a sworn financial statement required with mandatory disclosures. The judge told him, even though I asked for it several times, that the only information that he had to give me was 1 month bank statement. I have severe PTSD, according to my therapist, because of physical abuse by my daughter, which he allowed. During the Permanent Orders hearing, my soon to be ex said, "as per our previous discussions, your honor." More court orders pending. What else can I do?

    Easement maintenance

    I understand that it is my shared responsibility to maintain the driveway. Neighbor says I don't have the right to do it myself because I am not licensed and insured. His fear is me hurting myself on his property. I own a 4 wheeler with a plow and have done it along with all the other neighbors until last year he sent us all a letter stating he would not allow us to do maintenance. Now the road is in significant disrepair and he is trying to make us all pay for it. I feel if maintained the road wouldn't be in such bad shape. Can I plow the road myself after it gets fixed? what are my obligations for his 22k bid for redoing the road?
  24. I and my children are in CO. My uncle in TX left a mix of 3 IRAs at 3 different firms, a trading account, and cash to me and my two children, his sister, brother and a friend (who is the Executor). In CO, if a minor inherits over $12K, a Conservatorship has to be set up - at a cost of $2-3K per child. They are getting about $69K each. But IF I can refuse their IRA inheritances (totaling $48K each), the adults could (and would) make up the difference of the children's refused IRA inheritance amount by each gifting both children. I REALLY want to avoid the court hassle, time and cost of setting up Conservatorships. Can I refuse my children's inheritance on the IRAs? One is at an insurance company, and another is at a brokerage firm. Thanks
  25. My husband and I live in Colorado, Rent is due tomorrow 6/1 and we don't have the money yet to pay for our rent(our payments have never been late since we moved in). At the mean time my husband is at Boot Camp - Fort Jackson - and he has not been paid yet. I've asked his recruiter (I also received a mail from my soldier) and he said to expect his first pay check 30-45 days since he shipped out. He left 5/10. He won't be paid till 6/10 or at a later date. I called the apartment and the manager told me that we still have to pay for the late fees till whenever we get the money but until then they would take us to court. Late fees apply on the 4th day of the month. Colorado State laws does not cover rent late fees. I want to know what i can do. Any help is appreciated Thanks!
