Good Afternoon,I notified the finance company where the vehicle is located or where I believe it is located. The loan is default are they required to notify me when the find the vehicle? They also requested the phone number of the person who has the vehicle I provided a name but I am not comfortable giving them a phone number I do not trust either party not to screw me over some more.

Pending the outcome of a PCR can a petitioner ask the court to modify one of the conditions? I was told this was possible. The PCR has been on a continuance however during this time I seek to ask the court to modify one of the conditions of a docket. One condition is tied to a probation case 15 years old in which now that said condition is no longer appropriate.

In NJ if you are arrested for picking up a fraudulent called

In NJ if you are arrested for picking up a fraudulent called in prescription. It's a drive up pharmacy, and all you say is the last name and first, then the cops come. No pills or money changes hands, no Medication was found on the person. Can the person put a defense against that since there was never an true interaction of getting said medication.

I was involved in a lawsuit that was dismissed a few years

I was involved in a lawsuit that was dismissed a few years ago but during that lawsuit, I requested ALL of the recordings that were in the Plaintiff's possession during discovery and received a number of them with a written answer stating that had all been produced. I am now in another lawsuit with the same person and he has recently produced a recording dated before the last lawsuit of the same subject. Can I use those answers from the first lawsuit against him? He definitely had that recording at the time and did not disclose it during discovery. What can I do here?

I am in the process of dealing with a domestic violence

I am in the process of dealing with a domestic violence situation. My abuser is in jail and is facing charges. The DA has evidence of his abuse to include texts, emails, voice messages, and recorded conversations off my phone, as well as police officers as witnesses to the incident that resulted in his arrest. The DA has informed me that they are moving forward with prosecution. I got a restraining order in place. I got a letter from the DA stating they will be setting a trial date and will notify me of it by subpoena to appear. I imagine the subpoena is for me to appear to testify. If I understand right a subpoena is a court order to appear, and must be followed or I could face consequences? Some tell me that even if they send it i do not have to appear in court. Others say if I don't appear they will drop the case. Why would they do that with all the evidence they have? This case is the state vs. him, not me vs. him. I want to participate with the DA as much as they ask me to, however, I am concerned about showing up in court because I'm scared he will never forget that I did to testify against him, and as soon as he's released he will find me or someone I love and make me "pay" for showing up to testify. He has already (pre the arrest), told me he will do this. Can/will they still prosecute without my testimony in court? Isn't what I've given the DA enough. What are the potential outcomes here in either scenario? The state we're in is Oregon.
