I got a subpoena today to appear in court as a witness to

Hello,I got a subpoena today to appear in court as a witness to the court appearance of the other party to an accident that happened a month ago that involved my car and a bicycle. (Boulder Colorado)I was going straight on a through street at about 20 miles an hour and I did not have a stop sign but the street intersect on the right with another street that has a stop sign. Midway through the intersection, I hit a bicyclist who hit the front of my car and my windshield. At first I thought it was my fault because I did not see the bicycle coming. However, the traffic cops who investigated the accident made the determination that the cyclist was at fault since she had a stop sign and should have yielded to passing traffic.The police investigators also wrote on the report that the bicyclist claimed my turn signal was on. I am pretty sure that this was not the case as I was going straight and have no recollection of switching it on. (The only way it could have been on was if it had stayed on from the last intersection where I also turned right. However, that is also quite unlikely, as that intersection was 500 meters away and my blinkers have an automatic switch off.Thankfully, the cyclist was not seriously hurt. I stayed with her, called an ambulance for her and stayed with her until the ambulance and police arrived. She has pleaded not guilty however and I have been summoned to testify at her hearing.My questions are the following? How will the court proceedings go? How can the judge decide fault since both our stories are credible? If they believe her, what happens?ALso, I am wondering: from the standpoint of traffic law, would not the bicyclist still be at fault if she failed to stop fully at the stop sign and ventured into traffic before she saw where the car was going? Is it not incumbent for the person at the stop sign to yield long enough to avoid collision? I have not been able to find an answer to this last question on any legal site and would be grateful if you could help me with this.

I work for Macy's and was suspended on Friday because I

I work for Macy's and was suspended on Friday because I failed to make a deposit at the end of the night. I was carrying many purchases as well,and I have racked my brain thinking of how I could have set it down or dropped it on my way to the coat room safe. I have been with the store since 2006 without incident. I did not steal any money, and never would. That said I was suspended for further investigation, while they look at the cameras etc. I was told to call Employee relations within 48 hours. I am concerned about keeping my name clear, defending my character and not having a theft charge on my employment record. I signed a promissory note because the deposit was my respnsibility. Even though I am a top performer, my mistake does violate Macy's code of conduct. I would like to fight for my job, however I feel that I will be fired anyway since Mi.Is an at will state. Is there anything I can do? Do I need an Attorney, since the envelope.from security states that.the Prommisory Note does not preclude the possibility of criminal prosecution. Thank you!
