It appears we are being singled-out by individuals

It appears we are being singled-out by individuals (yard-Nazis?) for harassment by the city. They claim in a citation that there is a grass/weed violation. We do not have grass in the front yard but there are a variety of plants to make the property as maintenance-free as possible. This has been an ongoing problem for more than a year. However, the city ignores the other properties that actually do have a weed problem.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: OhioJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Yes, but as a disabled person on disability, the cost of a lawyer is prohibited.JA: What advice did they give you?Customer: Never got back.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Not that I can think of.

My friend's granddaughter, approx 14 years old, has recently

My friend's granddaughter, approx 14 years old, has recently been the victim of a vicious e mail attack from a girl or girls her age whom she knows. The reasons for this attack are unclear, but this girl apparently rallied other classmates against my friend's granddaughter, and either she alone or they together sent a series of email attacks to my friend's granddaughter which were so vicious and hateful (I have not seen them- my friend wouldn't even repeat them to me over the phone) that the girl cut herself, was taken to the psyche facility Laurel Ridge, and is now on suicide watch.I have no idea what laws, if any, have been broken here, or what recourse my friend might have apart from reporting the e mail to the school authorities. My friend and her son and daughter-in-law have kept the e mails. But it seems to me that this is an attack, albeit not a physical one, and should have consequences for the perpetrator.These friends of mine are disadvantaged financially and physically- the son has been hospitalized with injuries, and his mother, my friend, is just now recovering from having broken her foot. They don't have resources or any idea of where to turn, so I'm looking online to try to find some San Antonio agency which might be able to provide at least advice on what to do or what recourse they might have. The perpetrator is another teenaged girl, it's true, but it seems to me that that does not excuse her engaging in behavior that has resulted in harm to another.please advise if you can, maybe just contact numbers for other entities or agencies which could help.thank you,James IrelanSan Antonio ***@******.*** (###) ###-####

I have been dealing with 1 neighbor in my condo units that calls the police on me multiple

I have been dealing with 1 neighbor in my condo units that calls the police on me multiple times a week and says my dog is making noise and bothering him. Most calls are unsubstantiated, and some the officer responding can hear him occasionally bark or make noise while standing at my window or front door. I have asked for this to stop via the responding officer and his superior for 10 months to no avail. The officer indicates that because my neighbor called or submitted the complaint it is automatically against the ordinance, although the ordinance reads that noise from an animal must be excessive and continuous. I don't know where else to turn at this point to make it stop.

[Subject: New York harassment law] I'm looking into

[Subject: New York harassment law] I'm looking into discouraging a jerk of a neighbor from further harassing me and generally making me by composing and sending disparaging letters about her to people whom she associates with (it'd take a while to explainthe full situation, but she's made many enemies here, including myself). <br>I've been told when discussing a similar subject to be careful not to lie, if I do so. Based on the point &quot;2) N.Y. Penal Law § 240.26 - Harassment in the second degree&quot; in the following article, is it also important that I avoid appearing as if I'm purely outto embarrass her (such as asking the recipients to tell her to leave me alone)?: http://www.withoutmyconsent.org/attorneys/offenses-against-public-order-eg-harassment-nuisance-ny-penal-law-article-240<br>Is there anything else that'd be good for me to know? Particularly familiarity with New York law or Nassau County court systems would be most helpful.<br>If you're curious, I'm going to first confront her with words to the effect of that if she doesn't apologize for a couple of certain acts, that I'm going to make her life hard. Thanks in advance.
