My Medical Mal case was lost in the seattle superior court.

My Medical Mal case was lost in the seattle superior court. I feel that my mother, who was the injured person..delay of stroke 5 hours, in a stroke certified hospital was wronged. At the end, the ER Doctor, admitted that because my mother had group health insurance, he could not treat her stroke and it is the policy between Overlake Hospital and Group Health that the group health patients must be seen by Group Health Doctors. So, my mother had to wait 40 minutes before the group health neurologist showed up. It was delay, and she missed her window to be treated with IV tpa which is the only FDA approved treatment for a stroke (3-4 hour window).JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in?Customer: Washington State. Can we appeal our case?JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Could my mom's case be civil right because she was descriminated with her insurance?

My fiancee was arrested June 14 at ny home He was living in

My fiancee was arrested June 14 at ny home He was living in Rochester, NY at the time I live in Cheektowaga, NY about 60 miles away. He has Lupus and need a hip replacement this is how it all started. He was living in a rooming house and he could not have a nurse come there so he started calling Section 8 to see where he was on the list he was then advised that he does not qualify because he owed Rochester Housing Authority over $1,300.00 and he explained to the person the Judge stated he did not owe anything so he tried for 2 weeksto find some help. I was at work and a Federal Marshal called me on my fiancee's phone and told me they were taking him to jail because he had some problems at the court house I asked when was this because he has been at my house for 2 months. I drove home from work and there was about 6 marshal's at my home that would not let me in. I inquired again what did he do and one of the marshal's said he threated a Fedreal Prosecutor and I asked how was he suppose to get to Rochester because I had my car at work. First off all my fiancee walks with a cane and and I said he's just frustrated because he keep getting the run around. I work for the IRS and I've known Tony for 2 years and the person they are talking about is not the same person I know any way he has been to court 3 times I was there for 2 and his court appointed lawyer act like he is working with the prosecutor I've had to call him several times and tell him he was not getting his medical care I also called the marshal's. The last court date was August 8th and I took a list of the medicines he takes so for 2 months they were not attening to him. The last time he was in jail back in the 90's he had a stroke and he is worried about his health. He does not have any bail or another court date. His lawyer stated he was going to make a motion for him to have mental health test. Tony also sent the judge a letter stating he wanted another lawyer and he was not given a new one and he also stated he heard the tapes of the accusation and he stated it was not a personal threat it was a general statement. He is in Ohio and i need some help on what to do. Thanks in advance.

Lawyers... I was wanting to ask if any of you were in South

Hello lawyers... I was wanting to ask if any of you were in South Carolina and would be willing to attend a mediation session? It would be related to education law/ civil rights/ constitutional law. I am currently pro se and do not want to go to a mediation session alone. I am still currently in the issuing summons phase, but as an Eagle Scout I like to be prepared! I have studied the defendants and their actions/reactions, and I am willing to catch you up and save you a lot of time and effort. This is a case that will be in SC District court and federally related matters.

I was given a vast collection of original photographic

I was given a vast collection of original photographic slides and negatives by a neighbor, whose deceased husband took the photos in the late 1960's early 70's. The collection spans the 1950's to the 1980's.She assumed the photographs upon his death, and he had no children. Many of the photos are of great historical significance to the San Francisco Bay Area. Student protests, rock music stars, civil rights protests etc.The work is well organized and the quantity of images is in the thousands. The collection is essentially his life's-work.I would like to license some of the historical press-quality photographs, as well as possibly publish the photographs in the future.She verbally gave me permission to do what I please with them. She is still alive and I could benefit from the photographs, through licensing, publishing etc.How do I / is it possible to transfer the copyright from my neighbor (widow) to myself?What would be the best suggested procedure to be able to legally reproduce/exhibit/archive this vast collection of work?I would not be opposed to compensating her as she is a family friend.

Pertaining to the defendants common defense strategy. I've

Doug, Pertaining to the defendants common defense strategy. I've seen from research that the state supported school declares immunity under about 5-6 different reasons and statues. Will I as the plaintiff have to respond to each dismissal request if they are redundant? For Example (Qualified Immunity/Sovereign Immunity/SC Tort's Claim's Act/ Absolute and/or quasi-judical immunity/ the Eleventh Amendment of the US Constitution). If the defendant intentionally violated my civil rights and other constitutional rights knowing that damages would occur should I address each, or can I address immunity as with the eleventh amendment as the highest law of the land and have an umbrella effect and include more than one strike in a motion?
