Thank you time. I am not sure I chose the correct specialty

Hello. Thank you for your time. I am not sure I chose the correct specialty - but perhaps, if not, you can hand me off to the proper attorney.The short version: someone wrote a bounced check to my employer - which I was responsible for acquiring and now the accounting dept wants me to correct this issue. I either need a new check or proof (as the bouncer states) it was paid after all. The check was returned to my accounting dept with NSF stamped on itThe bouncer made the mistake of writing to me on her company "letterhead" from work the other day - when I called and asked her again to make good.The question: am I able to call her work, her supervisor or whomever at human resources and explain the situation?? The check was for $1800 and if we cannot get another check or the proof it was paid - my employer wants the money from ME!!Thank you again for your time

I gave a car to a needy couple and signed over the title but

I gave a car to a needy couple and signed over the title but they never got it notarized or officially took title to the vehicle. They then "got rid of it". Sat it on a roadside, put a sign on it that it could be taken for free and it was. Now I don't know where the car is or who has it. How can I get myself free of any liability for the car?

Do jails have to provide "a reasonable accommodation

do jails have to provide "a reasonable accommodation for the disabled" according to the ADA?Is PTSD, anxiety, panic in a jail setting reason to be arrested? Shouldn't police and prison/jail guards need to explain why they are asking a person to do something, esp. it the person asks them. Some of us just want to understand why we are being infringed upon? Are police allowed to leave bruises on persons at an arrest and to always charge "disturbing the peace" and "resisting arrest". It seems to me that any person that I know who has been arrested has always also had these two charges added on to whatever the "real" charge is.Does the person being arrested need to understand why they are being arrested like if a person has "Asperger's syndrome or mild ASD or a right hemispheric disorder" need to understand the reason for arrest? Do rights (Miranda) always need to be given to a person arrested?

In February I WAS driving home from picking up my roommate

In February I WAS driving home from picking up my roommate from work as she was in the passangers seat and is on probation for a second DUI. It was rush hour traffic and cars were bumper to bumper passing Dallas Fort Worth International Airport in Irving, Texas. Traffic suddenly stopped and the sun was at a position where it was almost imposible to see ahead, and at 1.3 miles per hour (I was looking at the digital display at time of impact) I accidently bumpesd into car in front of me. The driver of the other car got out as I did. I first made sure she was ok and did not need medical attention. Secondly I had her inspect veheicles with me and we both agreed that no damage or harm was done. I told here ther it would be a good idea to go ahead and exhchange personal information in the event anything did come up. I went to the car and started writing down my name, number, vehicle information and etc... My roommate all of the sudden called my name and stated "She is running from the scene. As she drove off I put my writing supplies down, fastened my seatbelt and began to follow her. I thousht for sure she would be taking the next exit for the sake of safety due to road conditions. I was not tailgaiting her car and as a matter of fact was approx. 5 miles behind her, as would any "reasonable and prudent" person would have been. The traffic was so heavy that other cars managed to merge inbetween the lady I hit and my roommate's car. We lost sight of her so took the next exit on Amon Carter headed to Centreport Fort Worth, Texas. We thought she would have pulled over on this exit because it was the closest and most reasonable place besides the busy highway to be traveling on at the time. After our failed attempt to find her we then made the turnabout at the intersection and revisited the road where the accident occurred in hopes that the woman would have gone back. She had not.A week later a hostile and very angry rude officer was banging on our door at around 0800 on a Friday morning. He threatened to tow the car if one of us did not admit to wrecking into this lady who must have gotten our license plate with pics from her phone. I did state that I was driving the car but the the lady was the one that flew the scene of the accident. He issued me a Texas Citation in the Municipality of Irving, Texas which happens to be in the County of Dallas, Texas. I am no lawyer by any means but I am also am a graduate of Texsas Tech University with a BA in Political Science and Philosophy with a minor in Physics and a Master's in public Health from Duke University. I did have recources to do some legal researching. My findings where that a Municipal court deals with Civil and some criminal matters or in what I believe to be Tort Law. So the citation issued by the officer who was not at the scene of the crime admitted that the lady named Brenda called 911 about 2 hours after the accident. He told her she would have to come in to the police station in Irving in the following day to make a report. In his "investigative field note" he made it sound like she was a helpless victim. And stated that there was a small scratch on the bumper that would amount to damages equaling exactly $150.It was then that I decided to find out how to take care of the fines for 1.) Accident with Damage to vehicle 5120, and 2.)a blank violation box and with 5000 in the Code section. I searched the transportation code, the penal code, the family and general health code, and the code DMV website and could not for the life of me find what these charges meant. So I went to the irving municipal court and learned that they were as follows. 1) Accident - Failure to leave identification and 2.) No driver's liscense. So Well, of course I had identification, my DL, and my Concealed hangun liscense along with phone etc. But who was I supposed to leave this information with since the woman drove the hell off? But, I got the ticket? Both citations were payable via the enternet or open for deferred adjudication or no contest. So I plead not guilty of course. (Sorry my deamoner is not professional - it will be at pretrial in suite and tie) - but it chaps my hide everytime I think of the officers alligations. I then immedeatly went to the police department and got the police report. The "victim"'s storey ended up being much differnet than mine and my witnesses. My question is this; For discovery which is due tomorrow, I have already filed the following for the pretrial hearing: My Statement of fact of vehicle accident, My Witness' Witness of automobile Accident, Request for Police Report, Request for professional appraisail of damages, request to dismiss the charges and Request for release-Settlement Agreement & Filing of a Stipulation Discontinuing Action. Am I missing anything important for pretrial? What should I expect at pretrial? Can the court dismiss the charges if I pay the alleged $150. What would you recommend?
