I have two commercial businesses sharing the property line

I have two commercial businesses sharing the property line with my primary residence. Local township ordinances require that they maintain their property in a specific manner. Over the last several years, one has failed to meet the basic landscaping requirements in spite of the fact that I have contacted them, the property managers and the township offices regarding the problem. The second business is new to the area and already they are not maintaining their property as they should, leaving me with two identical problems. I have contacted the township code enforcer regarding both businesses and asked that they step in and remedy the situation just as I have done since 2012. Nobody is making any headway nor have they made any in the past enforcing the ordinance in place regarding landscape maintenance for commercially owned properties. The township has many tools at their disposal to effect change but they have not acted on them. This problem has existed for over 4 years where one property owner is concerned and even though the other property owner is new, they are on track to cause the same issues. Not only is this an eyesore for us as property owners but it could affect our property value in the long run. Additionally, it is clear that township ordinance is being violated and the township is not correcting it. What legal action can I take to make these people do what they are supposed to do? Do I have a case against the property owners? Do I have a case against the township? If I do have a case, what type of legal counsel should I seek?

I am an American citizen originally from Pakistan which is

I am an American citizen originally from Pakistan which is a country dominated by it's Army who are known for high-handedness towards the civilians if anyone criticizes them. There are numerous stories out there of Army dealing with dissenters with violence.I am active on Twitter and during a recent visit of Pakistan's Army chief to DC, I posted something satirical about a serving general of the Army who was accompanying the chief. A Pakistani talk show host next day said that there was an "organized smear campaign" going on against the Army on social media and showed my tweet with my name and picture as an example. It is quite false that I'm part of any "organized campaign". They had a follow up next day on the same show referring again to this supposed "campaign" saying that now they knew that it was being organized by a Pakistani political party's social media team. I have no connection with that political party or it's social media team.This has made me or my family visiting Pakistan to meet family fairly dangerous and we are really concerned about it. Since the airing of that show, there has been a spate of postings on social media by the Army sympathizers to take action against the participants of this alleged "organized smear campaign" that is making me even more uncomfortable.This Pakistani channel is carried by Dish Network in USA and this program was aired in USA and it's available online on various sites to be viewed. Can I sue for defamation/slander for accusing me of being a part of a conspiracy and endangering the safety of me and my family?

The trial in the case has ended. The court has not decided

The trial in the case has ended. The court has not decided the claims and stated it will take the parties arguments, evidence, and law under advisement. The plaintiff has begun a barrage of written communication to the presiding judge which contains argumentson the merits of the case, and rebuttal arguments concerning my presentation of facts and law. This behavior is highly prejudicial to me, improper, violation of civil rules, and in my opinion contempt of court. What is the best way to handle this with thecourt? The case is a Wisconsin case.

My fiancee's exe left him last year after cheating with a 70

My fiancee's exe left him last year after cheating with a 70 year old. Aug '14 sent a demand letter of wanting the boat, and many other items and we gave it all to her. In this letter she said I want these items.... and "am never coming back." Since, sent texts, Oct, Dec, Jan asking for her xmas tree, then table, then pots, pans. My ex and I said sure. We had literally moved to another city. We left his woodworking equipment, tools, and types of wood in a storage unit on past landlord's property with her permission until nicer weather to haul and that was in March 2015. June 2015, the ex had gone in and removed ALL equipment. Thousands of dollars of specialized custom cabinetry equipment. just got bribery text, you left it there deserted and I will keep it until I get the engagement ring you stole that is mine and money you used during our relationship to pay your children's child support. We have receipts for it all. Theft? Bribery? extortion? what do we do?
