maybe - I just learned of this a few days ago. on Missouri's Case-Net. It never happened. What did happen is that, after the trial, the attorney and I went to a nearby restaurant, at his suggestion. There were 8 jurors sitting near the door we entered. I smiled at them, gave a slight wave, and took a table on the far side. We had our coffee and departed by another door. That was it.10/05/2007 Docket Entry: Motion FiledText:DEFTS MOTION TO INFORM THE COURT THAT PLTF GUS STURMFELS, JR. IS HARASSING THE JURY ABOUT THEIR VERDICT THIS NEVER HAPPENED. This has to be behind much of what has happened. I just discovered this. NEVER.. Impossible, I would never do this. NEVER. Reasons? Medical. Stupid anyway. BTW- I had many deaths before the trail and after, including my daughter, after six months of treating for leukemia, one of two “rescue” dogs 6 months later. I am now on anti-depression medication. I was robotic, and in some ways, still so.What happened: The next day, after the trial, I got phone call from my attorney to meet him in Division 11. I have no idea where that is, so I went to the courtroom of the previous day.The courtroom was empty except for one person, unknown, sitting near the front. I took a seat near the back.After some time, the defense attorney came into the courtroom via the door, in front, that the judge uses. When he spotted me, he spoke to that person and said “watch out for him,” pointing to me, “he will attempt to look at your papers.” And proceeded out the door in back.A few minutes later he reappeared, with my attorney. Shortly then the judge appeared, and was furious. He accused me of threatening the jury in the above situation. My attorney remained silent. The judge even threatened to jail me, and, according to my senses, if I said anything he would. I remained silent. The judge departed, using the door that the lawyer had used.As we departed, I asked my lawyer about what happened. He mumbled “don't worry about it.” So I did not. But I happened to find this when just looking through the records concerning my recently deceased sister.Maybe I should have gotten jailed, and then gotten a fair hearing.Can anything be done to clear this unfounded verbal assault claim?There were many important factors leading to the jury's verdict. Unbelievable. I made a list, but what to do with it?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Just postedJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Not regarding this issue. I just learned of it.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: The defendant lawyer is known for his tenacity; quote - "...till you bleed to death."

Legal malpractice. My friend, a special ed teacher, was

Legal malpractice. My friend, a special ed teacher, was arrested and charged with reckless behavior for moving a child's chair while the child was having a tantrum, not unusual situation in a special ed class. The child fell from the chair but was not injured. My friend was charged, arrested, went to trail and was found guilty of a misdemeanor by an almost hung jury. She had two different criminal attorneys. Both failed to do due diligence on case law. Had they done so they would have discovered that no teacher in Georgia can be arrested without a special pretrial hearing. Her first attorney did not know of or employ this law in her defense. In addition, there is a powerful law in Georgia that protects teachers in class when they are attempting to ensure discipline or maintain a safe environment. As long as the teacher "acted in good faith" they are immune from prosecution. This law has been tested several times on appeal and the teacher has consistently won. Our second criminal attorney was unaware of this law until we brought it to her attention and by then it was too late. A five minute check of relevant case law would have turned up both these laws and made prosecution impossible or at least more difficult. Not doing due diligence on relevant case law is surely grounds for a malpractice suit?JA: Can you tell me what state this is in? And do you have copies of the medical records?Customer: GAJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: We have file for a new trialJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Yes, the circle of people who can be potentially sued here is, I believe, rather large. A lot of people dropped the ball or in some cases acted out of malice including the School Board's retained attorney.

My son 3 weeks into turning 18 sent a partially nude pic of

My son 3 weeks into turning 18 sent a partially nude pic of his ex girlfriend who was 17 in a group chat with his new girlfriend and some of their mutual friends. He had the ex blocked but one of the girls in the chat had been called down to the school office on an unrelated issue where she had to produce her cell phone. They questioned who sent that pic and then the investigation began. This was 9 months ago. My sons phone was seized in September and now my son is in his 4th week at bootcamp. My son and the ex in the photo that she sent to my son reconciled and are friends again. We called the investigators who are on this case and they said they can only speak to our son. We don't know what to do especially with him being in the military now we don't want this to hinder his future.JA: Because education law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: IndianaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Nothing filed and no charges. I did call the prosecutors office yesterday but no response as of yet. The original school resource officer who was investigating this just called and said because our son is an adult he can only talk to him. We did not tell him he was away at bootcamp for fear he'd probably try to ruin our sons future. Our son has never been in trouble until this poor choice he made.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No ma'am. Thank you.

Im divorced affective date was Sept. 2016. This has been a

Im divorced affective date was Sept. 2016. This has been a roller coaster of police reports etc: for the ex violation protection order that the sheriffs dept didn't take serious. When he was taken away in cuffs and put on a protection order for 1 yr 1 month. He refused to pay any of the loan payments leaving me with 675.00 in payments and providing feed and hay vet bills for his horses. Went off on a 3 week vac at Christmas to see an old girlfriend. I was working 3 jobs to try and make it work. He wanted to see me just walk off the property knowing that he was pushing me beyond my means.JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I opened up the shop of his and had a sale in Jan of 2016, so I guess our split was in 2015. We have been before family law regarding this issues and when this judge heard why I had to sale he refused to find me in contempt. My ex keeps trying to push this through court, what can he do to make me pay back money that i received to pay bills?JA: You just pay a $5 deposit now and the rest only when you get a reply from the Lawyer. All of this is 100% satisfaction guaranteed, so you can get a refund if you're not happy for any reason.Customer: WyomingJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: When we first started in family law court the judge heard why and told me not to sell anything else. I didn'tJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no
