My roommate found videos of him and his girlfriend taken

My roommate found videos of him and his girlfriend taken through a window from our landlord. The videos were on a network drive attaches to the wifi in our house. But he copied those videos and all the others that were of the landlord. My roommate also demanded that our landlord buy him a car or he would contact the police. I know the landlord is in the wrong, but has my roommate also committed a crime by taking the other videos and pictures that were not his and the trying to extort money from our landlord too?

I am a plaintiff in a civil law suit in Massachusetts against

I am a plaintiff in a civil law suit in Massachusetts against several defendants (individuals) who provided services to me. My complaint alleged fraud and conspiracy to defraud by billing for work not done and submitting forged reports. The discovery period of the litigation is over. I have clear evidence that during discovery the defendants conspired to obstruct justice and provided false answers to INTs and RFA. It may be easier to prove the conspiracy during discovery than the original conspiracy. Is there a right of private action? Do I have standing? May I introduce at trial the evidence of conspiracy during discovery? Would a motion to amend the original complain be the right step? Shall I amend the complain with new counts of conspiracy during discovery and obstruction of justice? Since I cannot claim additional damages from the new counts -- would I still be able to benefit from the new counts if the motion to amend is granted? I am taking a page from criminal cases (think ***** *****), but I am not sure how this may apply to a civil case. I would appreciate an answer with references to case law.

I was recently dismissed of all domestic violence charges

I was recently dismissed of all domestic violence charges which led to my arrest because it was uncovered that the person who made these accusations to the police concealed all their txt messages and emails - over 5000 - which were contemporaneous to the time the party alleged to have been harassed. He also, to sustain the charges coerced a key witness into signing a suporting affidavit under durress. That witness came forward and signed a sworn affidavit alleging to the coercion. The accuser also perjured his own supporting affidavit. All of the aforementioned are facts, not speculation. I am rightfully indignant the prosecuter did not choose to charge for coercion or perjury, which is their right, although I think it is ludicrous. Two questions - I want some recourse. I do not want advice on a civil suit - I want to know if there is ANY accountability for prosecuters who do not charge for actual, uncovered crimes, or are they actually 100% immune? More importantly, I want to know if I can now file a police report against the man who did this to me -- and what grounds if any would I have? I am ot an attorney, so in my laymen terms I would want to file a police report for - obstruction of justice? lying to a police officer? coercing a witness? Can I do this, or would the police not take this domestic incident report seriously if the prosecuter did not choose to file charges - or could I convince police to make the arrest because I also think making false accusations / concealing egregious amounts of evidence is using the police to harass innocen parties. I believe this individual MUST face criminal recourse for what has transpired and there must be a way in the law to hold him accountable for such criminal acts.

Law Educator--we spoke sometime back computer crimes, and

Law Educator--we spoke sometime back computer crimes, and Privacy breaches by a corporation I once 50% owned and sold to my Ex and a claim of police corruption by several officers falsifying written reports and willfully not protecting my "Civil Rights to Privacy"--As stated my Ex gave out my Social Security number and faslified my internet identity as a corporate employee manipulated my personal cell phone, computer and Gmail to network link to his corporate server specific to remote employee monitoring -- allowing him--and his network IT personal, whoever is on the other end-- to remote hack all my data, webcam, audio and GPS monitoring of my personal privacy, track my physical location, all without my knowledge--Extremely emotionally difficult on me--I also have evidence my youngest daughter--than 17-- was harmed as well by a corporate server which is now crimes of ICAC. When crimes started my youngest was 13.My case had now been opened and closed three times--third case there are no reports my case was ever opened--my case now sits with District Attorney himself handed to him personally by my Domestic Abuse Legal Advocate.I have proved Police corruption--I have evidence to three official reports were severely falsified--I can prove my claim because I recorded police in my home all three times--total 1 1/2 hours--All evidence I presented to police in my home and words of the officers witnessing my evidence asking me how I got evidence---- was purposively left out of reports and replaced with severe words of Libel, Slander and defamation to my character--making me look inept--not to be believed.One falsified report was given to "Wisconsin Department of Justice DCI"--It was DCI who request my second case opened and properly investigated---Such acts of Police corruption--hampering an investigation---hiding evidance-is defined as "Obstruction to Justice,"To note, DCI Special agent is now "Wisconsin Program Director of ICAC," Internet Crimes Against a Minor--he will not be happy my daughter has been harmed due to police corruptionLast we spoke you had suggested I file a Privacy Civil Law suite against my Ex and the corporation and report Police misconduct to Wisconsin DCI and the Department of Justice Civil Liberties Division. Unfortunately trying to do personally has been difficult as DCI believes the libelist written words to my character over my claims of corruption and corporate crimes..As stated DA now has all my evidence to crimes as well all recordings proving three falsified reports --I would think with such Obstruction to Justice--Sheriff's Department hampering an investigation, falsifying reports, lying to DCI--allowing such insidious privacy invasions to a Mom and her daughter -- As such acts of Police corruption are outrageous--I can't imagine DA has any discretion and must inform DCI agent who received falsified report, as well DA must report to Civil Liberties Division and DA must step to the side and allow an internal investigation to take place from the outside.Added as I have such profound evidence of police corruption I would have a sound lawsuit "tort" claim against Police outrageously not protecting my, my daughter's Civil Rights to Privacy and added Libel, Slander and Defamation to my name in official reports--destroying my professional and private reputation-- I would have a Civil Rights Tort claim under the Federal Civil Rights Law of 42 USC 1983.As far as restitution--As Police would not investigate my case--now 3 1/2 years-- my cost to investigate my own case, forensic studies of my cell phone--copy imaging hard drives, attorney fees, several times having to secure my home internet, I believe I am on my seventh computer--I have had my home swept for hidden cameras and audio devices, as well put camera inside and outside of my home for protection-- my cost has exceed $40,000. Added lost income--when I found out such privacy--corporate computer crimes were occurring I had to put in an enormous amount of time--hours--daily--it became a full time job--as a result I had no earned income and cashed in some of my retirement dollars to support my living costs--I would think I would be entitled to all dollars I lost returned to me due to such corruption.Your thoughts would be appreciated--Thank You

Can you help me find a case law that deals with declaring

Can you help me find a case law that deals with declaring someone legally incompetent under false pretense? Just over a year ago I threatened to sue a man for estate fraud and one month ago I discovered that he has been trying to have me declared legally incapacitated ever since I threatened them. five false police reports and forty pages from the mental health department outline the effort to appoint a guardian and defame me in terrible ways, they even hired a probate lawyer to help build the case... It's all there and anyone who reads these reports would agree that the ultimate goal was to have me declared incompetent. The thing is, the person whos "estate"I was referring to is still alive, it's my mother. The day after my father died this man transferred everything my parents had to a trust that he controls and my mother is too scared to do anything about it. It's a long story but I don't have a case to bring for estate fraud now, but I will when my mother is gone. So here I am with one heck of a defamation claim but without actual damages... At least not yet. I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder years ago, unfortunately the diagnosis itself is much worse than the actual "illness". But I manage very well. I understand that false reports are a crime but what about the act of going to such great lengths in order to defeat someone in court? Or in this case, to prevent someone from being ale to go to court? I can't imagine that the court will appreciate that much.

Ok here's the background to this story. I was leaving my

Hi, ok here's the background to this story. I was leaving my home on a very very rainy day and the weather was horrible. I'm going about 20-25mph and then my windshield was covered with rain and as soon as my wipers went back down there was a guy in front right corner of my car and got hit by me.The thing is he was complaining about his leg and told me to hide his bottle of alcohol. And I was going to but then I stopped and brought it forward when the police arrived... The cop knew the kid and after getting my story he took the bottle to his car and issued me a accident report.Now my insurance is being sued over this but the kid had no were near 25k in medical expenses , it wasn't that serious.I don't have the Police report which I'll be getting tomorrow, if the police officer doesn't state there's alcohol involved given his personal with the injured one, and I had witnesses to the alcohol being present, am I allowed to counter sue the pedestrian and the police department ?

Ok..this is something that happened in WI. Someone I know

ok..this is something that happened in WI. Someone I know got pulled over and arrested because he had some narcotic medication that actually belongs to someone else, in his car. The police took his cell phone into "evidence" and told him that it will take a month but they WILL get a warrant and open it up and read all his messages and listen to his voicemails. Now, he does not legally own the cell phone, someone else does and he was just using it that day. So I am wondering if the legal owner of the phone can take proof to them and retrieve her property or do they really get to keep it as "evidence" when it isn't even his? And how can they call it "evidence" when he hasn't been found guilty of any crime? I am sure they believe he was going to sell the pills but he really was not. He picked them up that very same day from the pharmacy for the person they are prescribed to and had to show his ID to get them from the pharmacy so that can be proven. The problem is that the cap broke on the original bottle that they were in so he put them into an empty bottle that was in his car that had a cap on it that was not broken.

Two questions... What are the factors involved when determining

Two questions... What are the factors involved when determining weather someone filed a false police report? AND... Would my case fall under the category of obstruction of justice? I live in a small Kansas community that only has a few police officers. Almost two years ago, I hired a local contractor to work on our new house, long story short, he was not qualified. One day I arrived on site and immediately saw about $20,000 in work that was non conforming, I asked the contractor about it and he told me that it had just passed inspection, I called the city and he had lied, they hadn't been out to the house at all. I was mad and kicked them off the property. Two weeks later we had a break in and it seemed obvious who did it. A police report was made but I didn't care to follow through with charges. I hired another man about a month later to finish the job and he ended up being a good friend of the man who I had just fired (told you it was a small community). I had to remind him 4 times the first month alone to not use the first guy as a sub. The second guy (Aaron), became a handful quick. He was hanging sheetrock with staples, mixing his own paint out of sub par materials, skipping steps that should have been taken (such as laying down a protective barrier before building the roof top deck), and in the end, it seemed pretty obvious that he was wanting to get even with me for firing his buddy. About two weeks into his contract, I told him that he should expect to see small holes in various places in the end for inspection purposes. I reminded him that there would be inspections every week over the next two months and I could tell he was a little worried about it. Near the end of his contract, I arrived one day when he thought that I was out of town. The ceiling in the garage had just been painted with almost a full 1/2" of paint, directly underneath the master bedroom closet that he didn'y support enough when building it (he was just covering up recent cracks). I had brought a stack of drywall repair patches with me and began inspecting walls. I put 2"x2" holes in two different walls, one to look at the drain line for the tub and one to check for insulation. I found loose plumbing and no insulation. While I was inspecting the wall, Aaron walked into the house and saw what I was doing, he yelled "damn it" and stormed out the door. I left the property. Two hours later I get a call from the police, Aaron had just filed a report that I was vandalizing my own house and was going to blame him for it. I explained everything to the officer who seemed to completely understand. I told her that I was going to meet her with photos and other evidence that he had just filed a false report but she wouldn't let me do that. She told me that no report would be taken and that she was just going to inform the other officers of the drama should something arise... I was pretty upset but accepted it. Yesterday, my next door neighbor told me that the report was listed on the police activity blog for that month... I pulled the old paper out and sure enough, there it is... "suspicious activity". I'm furious right now, this contractor has been working out here for years and knows the 3 officers on the force very well. What advice can you offer?
