I have a son who is residing in Prison in the LA area. He

I have a son who is residing in Prison in the LA area. He has been through a lot...4 back surgeries...cancer...now an emergency neck operation...and he is only 41. Every time he is in pain...(and there has been horror stories from him and others who knows what he is going through) he reaches out to me. So, he is now in pain...and the doctor there believes in no pain meds. My son could be on a pain alternative solution...or some type of pain control. I am afraid he may go to the inmates who have contraband...and take things he should not be subjected to. I need someone to let the prison know that someone is interested in him to show that there could be pressure on them to step up and give him relief...enough to relax and heal. Could you help?

I am looking for someone who can address an issue with the Florida D.O.C. regarding a major scabies outbreak. My Uncle is incarcerated there and has written to me with concerns about it. He said he has found it is rampant where he is and the doctors don't do anything but diagnose eczema or dermatitis even though I have researched what he described and sent the information to him...he has confirmed that the research he got from me matches his symptoms exactly. What can I do to help him? He is 68 years old and really upset.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: He said that if someone is a "whistle blower", for lack of a better term, they often end up dead.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: He said one of the doctors is Spanish and he doesn't believe he even has a license to practice in the U.S. and the other is a Nurse Practitioner. They don't listen and they aren't helping him or the 30+ cases he has discovered. Other inmates are aware of it as well but they can't get any help.JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in?Customer: Florida.

My friend is in a county jail. He's been there for over 3 months. He is handicapped, is supposed to be in a w/c due to frequent falls, has chronic pain, and has a diagnosis of liver cancer. None of his handicap needs or his medical needs are being addressed. He has not even been given a cane or a walker. (The other inmates 'catch' him when he begins to fall.) What can I do to help him? Is there anything that can be done to correct this situation?

D, Please see attached. My central question is...should this

Hi D, Please see attached.My central question is...should this be an "objection and motion to quash" or should and objection and motion be separate? Any comments on the content?The other question here is one of civil liberty and decency...the motion to have access to the video of the seizure is fundamentally unappealing...for lots of reasons. Any tips on how to highligh that the opposing side is "overmotioning" or engaging in pure harrassment at this point?Thanks again!
