A former friend continually harassed me both over the phone
A former friend continually harassed me both over the phone and online. She was very possessive, and whenever I told her I wanted space, she very quickly spiraled into threatening self harm. She sent me terrifying texts and anonymous messages online and bypassed block features to contact me against my will. When my husband intervened, taking the phone and asked her to leave us alone, for the sake of my health, she finally agreed. However, she followed me to my online writing forum and has branched out all over and turned people there against me. It's impossible to avoid her, and I'm no longer able to be active in that community if I don't want any contact with her. Is there legally any way to make her leave? Can I file for harassment?
A child is being abused, (threatened, dangled over a 2nd
A child is being abused, (threatened, dangled over a 2nd story deck railing, disciplined, by his mother's current live-in boyfriend. DSS says they cannot do anything because it is not being done by a parent. The sheriff sent a deputy who said he did not believe the child, even though a brother confirmed what happened. The father of the child doesn't know where to go with this. It is almost 3 weeks before the custody case goes before a judge. What can he do?

Truck was reposessed inside of property with locked
truck was reposessed inside of property with locked gate...is that legal. They came in at 5am. No courtessy call, when they took the truck they also took my tools. I was only late once on payments but the truck was under my dad's name...they said that since I was driving the vehicle, regardless of the payment history, they were going to revoke financing and take the truck. Is that legal?
I shall appear in traffic court next week to defend myself
I shall appear in traffic court next week to defend myself against a red light camera ticket. The photos do not show the driver. In my first appearance I told the judge I was not the driver but he said I should pay the fine and get the money back from whomever was driving. I told him it was not my duty to provide the driver's identity and that it was against the 5th Amendment to force me to do so. He set a court date and said I should be prepared to cite cases wherein the 5th Amendment was a good defense against my having to find and reveal the driver. Do I have to cite actual cases? I would think the logic behind this argument should suffice.JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Florida,JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I am being fined an additional amount for not paying the original fine. I have appeared in traffic court the one time and am summoned to appear again,JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Cannot think of anything right now
I'm wondering if I can sue my job for mental anguish. I was
I'm wondering if I can sue my job for mental anguish. I was given a list of tasks, but not enough payroll to cover them. When confronted, the response was that no one finished the list, and that they know its set up to be impossible in most stores. When asked what are the preferred task to skip, the answer was that I was still held accountable for the entire list. Then they added more task outside of the list. They also constantly give opposing instruction. We were told to hire and train people, and to cut payroll. It is impossible to spend money and not spend money at the same time. When confronted on this subject due to a different set of opposing direction, I was told that this was normal and not going to change. There is a general rudeness that comes from the top down as well. They assume what you are going to say or ask, and answer that instead of replying to what you actually say. When you let them know that they responded to the wrong thing, you're wrong, no matter what, and you need to just do what they say, even if it has nothing to do with the problem you presented. Nothing ever gets resolved without a big battle and I'm being told this isn't going to change. I need to work, but this environment is making it hard for me to function.
I filed a small claims suit. The defendant hired an attorney
I filed a small claims suit. The defendant hired an attorney and has asked to transfer this small claims suit to a civil suit/case. When I initially filed the small claims suit, I just filled out their e-form which allowed me to explain my case in a mere 5 lines or so.Anyway, I have received a response from the defendants attorney that states my suit is too vague and the defendant does not know how to answer. When I call the court house where I filed the small claims course, they told me they require no further response from me and that my case will be scheduled with a civil arbitrator.My question, based on the information I have provided, I don't know how I will stand in Civil court. What I turned in was for small claims. Will the arbitrator just listen to my side of the story or are there rules of submitting evidence and more information prior to the case now? I guess I just don't understand how the short form I submitted for small claims is just going to transfer to a civil court and is sufficient?

Defendant is trying to have venue moved, would not specify reason during phone conversation, later writes a motion stating Plaintiffs were contacted and opposes, but would have agreed understanding reason. also, evidence provided earlier signature shows defendant had a partner, now defendant has written in several occasions, denying partner had any relationship with him, and trying to infer partner was plaintiffs' relationship.
