I was recently involved in a car accident because I was

Hi there. I was recently involved in a car accident because I was sleep driving. But the police has given me a text while driving record.... which is not true... I have the phone bill that clearly state that I wasn't using my phone for any matters, and I don't have a habit of using my phone during that time (way to work). So I was wondering how should I defend myself at court? If I said I was sleep driving, can they give me a new ticket for that? Thanks!

Me ex boyfriend is suing me for tort and conversion because

Me ex boyfriend is suing me for tort and conversion because I refused to ship his belongings, specifically his hard drives, to him. He has not cooperated with my discovery at all, I cooperated completely with his. So he filed a request for summary judgment based completely on my RFAs and a short declaration on his part.I just finished my opposition to the RSJ, but what is clear to me after doing it is that there is just no cause of action here. I refused to ship his stuff, but I kept it safe for 2 and 1/2 months and told him to come get it if he wanted it. I don't even need any discovery, really. I want the Judge to agree with me that there is no cause of action.(His case did survive a demurrer.) Is there a way to do that? Do I file something different? or in my opposition to the summary judgment, is it okay to point out that there is not really a cause of action here at all and hope the case is dismissed?

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.
