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.

These are questions on Constitutional Law. Under what conditions

These are questions on Constitutional Law.Under what conditions can the U.S. Constitution be suspended? Does a congressional Declaration of War Allow for this to happen? Can a presidential and/or congressional Declaration of National Emergency suffice? Who can suspend the U.S. Constitution? The President alone? The President plus congress? Does a simple majority vote suffice to effect the declaration, or is some kind of super-majority required? What is the role of the various States in this process? Does the entire Constitution get suspended, or can just parts of it, like The Bill of Rights, be suspended. Is a suspension of the U.S. Constitution limited in time, or can it last indefinitely?

This is Liz in Texas. I have another question about

Hello, this is Liz in Texas. I have another question about this Federal Surveillance and the City Council. According to the FBI's director James Comey he says one has to have a warrant on them to be under this extreme type of surveillance. My believe is all but one council member agreed to free me. So my question is about stopping this one person or turning them into the FBI for illegal use of power. This City has committed Fraud and is injecting me into extreme life depriving situation and ruining my health and preventing me from have a life or earning any income. I have been prevented from getting an attorney over and over by this City and others in my case. I've ask for them to assign me an attorney and written them so many email and letters and all they do is ignore everything. I NEED TO REPORT THEM TO SOMEONE AND GET AN ATTORNEY FOR EXTREME PERSONAL INJURY DAMAGES. PLEASE ADVISE!!!

As a woman with a post traumatic stress disorder, fibromyalgia,

As a woman with a post traumatic stress disorder, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome, I feel that when I was not given a ten minute break when requested during my deposition, as a result the interrogation ceases with the defendant's attorney saying he had no more questions. My attorney caved in and offered me no support. My attorney then leading up to the trial is questioning my husband about me being able to stand trial. He confirms she is able. The evening before the trial the trial is stopped without my consent. I was told that if I did not like the settlement to which I heard no settlement conditions discussed that I could still go to court. A year later I saw that there was an Agreed Order Dismissing the case based on an agreed settlement. I did not sign or agree to a settlement. Have not my civil liberties been denied?

When the Police arrived, my wife drew a knife and lied to the police about the event. The police arrested me in jail for 45 days. In the jail, the public defender demanded me to plead guilty. I refused many times. At the end, public defender (Ms. ----- ------ ), promised that there would be a trial after I was released from jail, due to the promise, I agreed to plead guilty.After I was released from jail (June 4th, 2014) I cannot went back to live at my house. Because the other judge (Mr. Randall ******) gave me a full order of protection.In August 21st, 2014, I and the public defender went to the court house for the trial. The prosecuting attorney dismissed the case. They did not dismiss the order.Afterwards, I protested for 75 days in front of the Saint Joseph court house. Not long after, some local law enforcement officers approached me and threatened to send me back to jail.- I demanded many time to the court clarks to permit to see the judge in person. But the clark did not permit to speak with judge.- I went into police station many times and demanded to legally solution about misconduct of police but the police ignore and get me out from station.From that time until today- 2015, my wife lived with another man at my house.

The legal aid advised that I should go to ACLU for help.In this situation, I feel that when a man was in serious danger as well as serious pain, other people were looking the other way and ignoring. This is not like a normal human society. It is totally Unfair.-I did not do domestic assault in 2014 . I solemnly swear it.-I did not violation in 2015.
