Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
thank you. So if I live in Oklahoma, the accident occurred in California and because Amtrak and Union Pacific do business in Oklahoma I can sue in the federal district court where I live in Oklahoma. That is what I am trying to decide. I have spoken on the phone with Amtrak and the local police and I do not want to sue in Sacramento who has federal jurisdiction.
Thank you... if I have any other questions and will pay for your time which i will can i contact you again?
I just don't want to loose the statute of limitations and I want to make sure this never happens to anyone again. I also want more than one federal judge involved. California is corrupt and I think Oklahoma has better judges
