Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Good evening. I'll be assisting you with your question.
To answer your question directly, yes, you do have that right.
You can exclude anyone you want from your business, so long as you are not doing so on the basis of them being a member of some protected class (e.g. race, nationality, etc.).
If you are excluding someone because they have caused problems in the past, you are well within your right to exclude them.
HOW DO I LEGALLY GO ABOUT MAKING THIS FELLOW LEAVE THE PROPERTY, SOMEONE TOLD ME I CANNOT TOUCH HIM OR ITS ASSAULT.
That is correct advice. You need to call the police and have them issue a trespass warning. If he comes back, he can be arrested for criminal trespass.
OUR LOCAL POLICE WILL NOT INTERVENE THEY SAY ITS A CIVIL MATTER, SHOULD I CALL IN THE STATE POLICE.
If he is there and refuses to leave, the police should handle it. If not, yes, call the state police.
This is a potentially criminal matter, so you need to take it "up the chain" with the police department. They should be responding.
THANK YOU, XXXXX XXXXX POLICE FORCE IS LIKE THE GOOD OLE BOYS NETWORK THEY WILL NOT DO ANYTHING TO THERE BUDDIES. I WILL CALL THE STATE POLICE HEADQUARTERS ITS JUST 12 MILES FROM US.
That is probably the best you can do. It is a shame the police department won't respond because it is probably technically their jurisdiction. It is really frustrating for a citizen when the police won't do their job, because oftentimes there aren't any alternatives.
Can I do anything else for you?
NOPE YOU ANSWERED IT ALL THANKS.
Glad to help.
