Wrongful death in northern ca jail - 3 deaths in 3 weeks -

Wrongful death in northern ca jail - 3 deaths in 3 weeks - my boyfriends was the last- I'm the only one who chose to view body post autopsy and pre cremation - I have photos of a what looks like a beating and possible strangulation bc his eyes had petechia - I'm an RN I know what dead bodies should look like - it's under investigation all results not yet in- his sons have spoke w atty ( identity unknown) - I'm aware of laws re lawsuits which only allow next of kin first priority and partners only if no Nxt of kin - his sons are estranged from me bc his arrest was for ongoing domestic violence - hence my grief is so immense and complex it's unbearable - until his arrest and even after they liked me and believed I was best thing in world for him- HE demanded I. It tell sons of his real emotional instability and escalating patterns - so when he was alive for 39 days in custody but at a long distance from family they didn't hate me; when he turns up dead that all changed to displaced anger - I have a witness an inmate he befriended who told me of guard abuse and how he was punished for disability ( hard of hearing) Not only him but guards purposely punished whole pod of men repeatedly when he didn't hear "stand up" for count... the men lost commissary and were put in lockdown all but 1 hour a day instead of normal 6 hours a day -- the men first ghreatend to beat him up- the second time they threatened his life !- and so he asked for solitary protective custody and he turns up dead !!! I don't trust the biased county sheriffs dept - there's no independent investigative agency - so much more happened - the witness inmate also was in court w him and said he never got to meet public defender prior to hearing - all the phone numbers for family I dropped off on day 3 at Punlic defended office to be delivered to him ( on their promise) were never given !! He was alive 8 hours found unresponsive in solitary and taken to Hosptal and yet of course no calls to family or me-JA: Since estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: CaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Read my letter pls - sons spikenw atty - they are not talking to me easily bc of grief and circumstancesJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I'm the only one w photos

I own an apartment in a co-op in Manhattan. This apartment

I own an apartment in a co-op in Manhattan. This apartment allows any pet except for dogs. My girlfriend (who does not own the apartment but is a legal resident) suffers from anxiety and was recently prescribed an ESA by her therapist, who specifically stated in a diagnosis letter that a dog would provide her with the most comfort. Besides that, I am allergic to almost all animals except for dogs, since I grew up with them, so a dog is really my only option for what I can live with.We put in a formal request with the co-op board to allow an exception so we could get a dog for her mental health. After a month, they just denied our request. Do we have any legal recourse to fight this?
