United States Department of justice Questions

What is the Department of Justice? The Department of Justice (DOJ) handles the legal work of the Federal Government and is the largest legal organization in the US. The main objective of the DOJ is to represent the United States' inertest in the court system and enforcing the federal laws. The department has many functions and it plays a large role in investigations, filing lawsuits on the United States behalf and catching criminals. To learn more about the Department of justice and its role in US government, take a look at the most common questions regarding The Department of Justice that have been answered by Experts.

My son is legally blind and was harassed by a bus driver. We are considering a lawsuit against the MTA bus system. What should we do?

If you are considering a lawsuit, you should think about including not only MTA, but the state and city where the bus system is located and the driver. The drive was discriminating against your son. You should consult with an attorney in this matter. The attorney will evaluate the situation and decide how to proceed with a lawsuit. Usually, if the case against the other party is strong, an attorney will work on a contingency. This means that the attorney gets paid a percentage of your settlement from the lawsuit. If you need a referral for an attorney, contact your state Bar Association.

Another step that you can take is to contact the Department of Justice Civil Rights division for a Title ll Violation. This type of complain must be filed with the Department of justice within 180 days of the discrimination violation. If the Department of justice investigates the situation and cannot resolve the violation, they may bring a lawsuit against the violators.

The Department of Justice issued a press release that detailed a tax offense I plead guilty too. Is there a Statute of Limitations when the DOJ will take this press release off the internet or is there a way I can have it deleted?

The department of justice isn't obligated by any law to remove the press release. All federal convictions are open to the public which means the Department of Justice is within its rights to publish the information to the public. While there is no set timeframe in which they leave information to be viewed, you could always ask them to remove the information. You may want to try the direct approach by asking the prosecutor who prosecuted your case. Explain to the prosecutor that you have completed your sentence and you would like for the information to be removed.

A man has been contacting me demanding money. He claims he is with the US Department of Justice. Is this a scam?

You need to contact the US Department of Justice and request the fraud task force and report this. To begin with, the US Department of Justice will not request your personal banking information or require that you send them payments via mail. The Department of justice will expect you to come to the office personally. If the person is requesting your bank, credit card, personal information, or requesting payments for some type of investigation, you shouldn't release any information. Stop all contact with the person and contact the US Department of Justice.

Americans with a Better Cause (ABC), a nonprofit organization, files a law suit against the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), claiming that a certain federal statute the DOJ is empowered to enforce conflicts with the U.S. Constitution and with a state constitution. In each situation, which source of law has priority?

Any time there is a conflict between a federal law and the US Constitution, the Constitution will trump (override) the federal law. When there is conflict between a federal law and a state statute, and the federal law has supreme control over that area of law (interstate commerce) then the federal law will override the state statute under the U.S. Supremacy Clause. However, if the federal government doesn't have executive control over the law, the statute would override the federal law. The only exception to this rule would be if the federal government could show a need to override the statute, such as a national emergency.

I received a letter from the Department of Justice that indicated I will be arrested pursuant to section 11105.2 of the California penal code. What does this mean?

In a situation like this, it would appear that something has connected you to some form of criminal history. You need to contact an attorney to assist you. The attorney can contact the Department of justice and find out what caused this action against you.

If you find yourself caught up with the US department of Justice, more than likely you will be in need of legal assistance. Before facing the DOJ on your own, you should ask an Expert for assistance in the best way to approach your situation. An Expert can provide you with answers that pertain to your unique situation.

  • Hello, Veronica Pham here. I am trying to reapply for a Sales

    Hello,
    Veronica Pham here. I am trying to reapply for a Sales RE License. Back in 2002 I was out of work, holding a condo mortgage and sending out resumes and going to job fairs and still could not land a six figure income job. Meanwhile I had bills, auto and mortgage to pay every month. It became a financial hardship and desperation to make money. On April 2002, after coming from a job fair in San Meteo, I stopped into the Palo Alto Shopping center and was looking to buy pantyhose stockings to were with my tailor suites since the ones I had kept tearing and run lines getting bigger down the pantyhose. I found some bras and pantyhose that I liked at the Palo Alto Neiman Marcus that I like to buy. I went to pay for them at the cash register. I was frustrated and upset when they rejected my Visa card payment and said they only take American Express or the NM credit card.
    With the already months of job rejections and bills piling up, this Pantyhose and bra purchase Snapped me. I walked away and was Rejected from this purchase as well as job rejections and Bills to pay.
    I am wrong to have put the unpaid pantyhose and bras in my bag and left the store without paying for them. I did want to pay for them with my Visa card and the extra Rejection of the Visa card only added to my Job rejections, mortgage to pay and bills piling up. I am wrong for that.
    The shoplifting came to a grand total of $1,800 since they were a high end department store, the items added up Big. In 2002, I did 3 months community service, returned all merchandise back to the store, paid all my restitution and got an early Expungement in 2002.
    In 2006 I passed the Sales RE License exam but went to Hearing in 2008 with DRE Judge in Sacramento. Judge Green did not let me have the Sales RE License. He said the crime was still too recent between 2002 to 2008.
    I am now married and have a 2 1/2 yr son since 2011 and we live in West Sacramento next to the Railey Baseball field. My husband works in SF and we plan to live in San Rafael this coming June 2015. I would like to go back to work as a Vacation Time Share Sales Rep for Shell Vacations near Pier 39. They need a sales RE license to work there which is why I would like to re apply for the CA Sales RE License.
    Only one week form 2015, it has been 13 years ago that I have this conviction Expunged and would like to know if DRE will accept me if I pass the Exam and try to re apply for the RE Sales License to work for Shell Vacations near Pier 39. ?
