I am a disabled veteran with a disabled parking placard and

I am a disabled veteran with a disabled parking placard and a disabled parking spot in front of my home. There is a city sign saying no parking Wednesday between 0300 and*****sweeping. The police ticketed my car despite ADA law for not moving my car for street sweeping. The cops told me their city laws provide no exceptions. Isn't this in violation of the ADA? How can I fight this?

I have a question about my civil liberty of right to know

Hi, I have a question about my civil liberty of right to know what I have been accused of.I used to live in a Senior Community and the ladies of that community asked me every so often to come offer to play cards so they would have a 4th.The day after I played on a Sunday about two weeks ago I got a call from the establishment saying someone there complained about me. I don't use bad language, didn't confront anybody, or do anything that to me should be offensive to anyone. I was told that my conversation was not good for their patrons. I was pleasant that day and no idea what they were talking about or who the accuser was and was denied the right to know exactly what I said that was wrong and denied the right who my accuser was.Is this America??? That senior is run like a prison and I fear for those who unknowingly sign up for a place who anyone can accuse anyone of anything and the accused has no rights. Do I have any case here to demand to know what it was that I supposedly said that was not "good for their clientele to hear".

I am a Paramedic and had a seizure at church. My manager

I am a Paramedic and had a seizure at church. My manager happens to go to my same church and was there. EMS arrived and while in the back of the truck my wife told them I had consumed CBD oil previously. I was a patient who had signed for HIPPA rights and although my manager was initially a bystander, once getting into the back of the ALS unit was she not functioning as a Paramedic and still bound under HIPPA. Today I was made to go into work for a drug test because of probably suspicion of drug use. Although I purchased it in a local vap store in my town and had been using it as a safe way to quit my tobacco usage. It was stated on the form that I said I used it and that is the reason for the drub test. That statement was said in the ambulance and I was under the impression I was protected by HIPPA. AM I wrong about this and have they violated my HIPPA rights. Also I was not given the option to go to the hospital another violation of my civil right. Pt's have a right to refuse is what I have always been told.

I have a legal issue in Oregon. I am currently attending

I have a legal issue in Oregon. I am currently attending Oregon State University and I had some issues with other students and certain staff members. I would like to record the interactions that I had with them. My understanding (based on Oregon section 165.540) is that as long as I inform the individuals that I will be taking an audio recording, then I am within my right to record the conversation, regardless if they consent or not.Also, my understanding, based on Oregon law, is that in educational activities, I am entitled to record the event as long as my recording device is unconcealed. I understand that this applies to the classroom during classes. Can I start the recording just prior to the scheduled time of class? Can I also start the recording just while I would be walking on campus. Also, can I potentially start the recording if I was doing homework in the library. What's the context for "scheduled activities?" For example, if there was a meeting outside of class with other students about a class assignment, would I be able to record this as long as the device was unconcealed. What about if this was scheduled with another member of the educational staff at Oregon State University.I notified staff members what my understanding was and my plan to record the interactions. If Oregon State University states I'm not allowed to record the conversations despite following the legal procedure in 165.540 would I be entitled to damages? Does Oregon State University have intellectual property claims to lecture materials that would not allow me to make audio recordings like in some universities (though there are some conditions and it depends on the use I believe). Are there potentially other restrictions specific to the Oregon State University?Finally, I'm also having some issues with verbal harassment at Oregon State University. My understanding is that if I was a participant in a conversation then I would be able to record the conversation if I had informed the other individual. However, in the situation of harassment, I haven't actually consented to having the conversation in the first place. I believe in 165.535, they define conversation as "transmission between two or more persons of an oral communication," however it seems as if this law would be in the context of a consented conversation between two individuals. In regards ***** ***** communication, what type of audio recording options would be available?

Law Educator--we spoke sometime back computer crimes, and

Law Educator--we spoke sometime back computer crimes, and Privacy breaches by a corporation I once 50% owned and sold to my Ex and a claim of police corruption by several officers falsifying written reports and willfully not protecting my "Civil Rights to Privacy"--As stated my Ex gave out my Social Security number and faslified my internet identity as a corporate employee manipulated my personal cell phone, computer and Gmail to network link to his corporate server specific to remote employee monitoring -- allowing him--and his network IT personal, whoever is on the other end-- to remote hack all my data, webcam, audio and GPS monitoring of my personal privacy, track my physical location, all without my knowledge--Extremely emotionally difficult on me--I also have evidence my youngest daughter--than 17-- was harmed as well by a corporate server which is now crimes of ICAC. When crimes started my youngest was 13.My case had now been opened and closed three times--third case there are no reports my case was ever opened--my case now sits with District Attorney himself handed to him personally by my Domestic Abuse Legal Advocate.I have proved Police corruption--I have evidence to three official reports were severely falsified--I can prove my claim because I recorded police in my home all three times--total 1 1/2 hours--All evidence I presented to police in my home and words of the officers witnessing my evidence asking me how I got evidence---- was purposively left out of reports and replaced with severe words of Libel, Slander and defamation to my character--making me look inept--not to be believed.One falsified report was given to "Wisconsin Department of Justice DCI"--It was DCI who request my second case opened and properly investigated---Such acts of Police corruption--hampering an investigation---hiding evidance-is defined as "Obstruction to Justice,"To note, DCI Special agent is now "Wisconsin Program Director of ICAC," Internet Crimes Against a Minor--he will not be happy my daughter has been harmed due to police corruptionLast we spoke you had suggested I file a Privacy Civil Law suite against my Ex and the corporation and report Police misconduct to Wisconsin DCI and the Department of Justice Civil Liberties Division. Unfortunately trying to do personally has been difficult as DCI believes the libelist written words to my character over my claims of corruption and corporate crimes..As stated DA now has all my evidence to crimes as well all recordings proving three falsified reports --I would think with such Obstruction to Justice--Sheriff's Department hampering an investigation, falsifying reports, lying to DCI--allowing such insidious privacy invasions to a Mom and her daughter -- As such acts of Police corruption are outrageous--I can't imagine DA has any discretion and must inform DCI agent who received falsified report, as well DA must report to Civil Liberties Division and DA must step to the side and allow an internal investigation to take place from the outside.Added as I have such profound evidence of police corruption I would have a sound lawsuit "tort" claim against Police outrageously not protecting my, my daughter's Civil Rights to Privacy and added Libel, Slander and Defamation to my name in official reports--destroying my professional and private reputation-- I would have a Civil Rights Tort claim under the Federal Civil Rights Law of 42 USC 1983.As far as restitution--As Police would not investigate my case--now 3 1/2 years-- my cost to investigate my own case, forensic studies of my cell phone--copy imaging hard drives, attorney fees, several times having to secure my home internet, I believe I am on my seventh computer--I have had my home swept for hidden cameras and audio devices, as well put camera inside and outside of my home for protection-- my cost has exceed $40,000. Added lost income--when I found out such privacy--corporate computer crimes were occurring I had to put in an enormous amount of time--hours--daily--it became a full time job--as a result I had no earned income and cashed in some of my retirement dollars to support my living costs--I would think I would be entitled to all dollars I lost returned to me due to such corruption.Your thoughts would be appreciated--Thank You

Dave What can I do about following issue - I am electronically

Hi Dave What can I do about following issue - I am electronically harassed for exactly four months so iintensivlly day and night that I am incapacitated. I clearly could here sounds in the form of Morse code coming to my ears and started to record them. Then I understood why I did wake up with bursts in my head, with sudden thunder like sounds sometimes every hour I.e 1 am, 2 am, 3 am. I wrote to senator here in California about the torture and she did not answer any of my emails. I wrote to Obama and in the letter sent they acknowledged that this might be difficult time for me offering me links to mental health professionals and help for suicidal people. I don't need anything but these frequencies to stop bombarding me 24 hours a day. After I sent the file to my electricity provider the perpetrators tuned the signals down but I still can record them. They are so sophisticated that they can find me in europe where I left to save my life and here in California. Van I sue senator for being non responsive and the same for government. I am whistle blower and an activistJA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?Customer: I did write the story - did you receive itJA: OK got it.
