I was rear ended on Friday afternoon driving home from work.

I was rear ended on Friday afternoon driving home from work. Was sitting at a traffic light when someone ran into me. There front end was damaged and I have an SUV that had little to no damage at all. The hitch adapter I had was bent. After some time I told the other party if the wanted to just pay for the hitch adapter which was a hundred dollars I would be fine with that. They could wait for lEO and go through their insurance company for damages to their vehicle. They paid me 100.00. we exchanged phone numbers. I told the. To contact me if they needed any other information for police report and left. Did I do wrong?JA: What state is this in? And how old is the SUV?Customer: I live in NC. My vehicle is a 99 Chevy Tahoe with almost 200k. They were driving a much newer Lincoln which sustained front end damage.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I believe they waited for lEO and filed a report. They never called me. Could have gone back. Am told they had to call 911 three times to get someone out there and they waited almost 2 hours for them to arrive.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Nope

I am attempting to retain legal counsel for a civil rights

I am attempting to retain legal counsel for a civil rights and personal injury case in Utah. How do I protect legal counsel, medical experts, and witness from government intimidation and harassment?JA: Can you tell me what state this is in? And do you have copies of the medical records?Customer: Utah. My phone calls and in-person contacts are being interfered with by a government surveillance system. In 2003 the state and FBI issued a search warrant and I have been subject to a (lone-wolf) surveillance system. There is damage to my head because of the pressure and some kind of electric burning it causes to the scalp and tissue. I need to obtain a medical record. There is a helicopter that flies overhead to document location whenever I go to a law firm to obtain legal assistance. The most recent incident was last week.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I started trying to get help from the ACLU in 2013. But they backed off because the surveillance system goes international. I filed a preliminary civil rights claim with the State of Utah and the FBI at the beginning of January because of the head damage. The intimidation is not as bad, but it has affected my employers, family members, and any ongoing associations.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I need to know how long the State of Utah and FBI have to answer a FOIA and GRAMA request after receipt.

My question is centered around a previous answer and issue

My question is centered around a previous answer and issue back in April 2016. The hospital administrator resigned; and has since hired an attorney to threaten a law suit if the hospital does not pay him some type of severance pay; even tho he resigned.; he also has threatened my self and several other board members and has made false accusations and defamatory remarks about me. The letter from his attorney was passed out at a board meeting for all members to review; however; we agreed to turn it back into our attorney for legal reasons. I have since rotated off of the board of directors and would like to get a copy for my records.1. How do it get the letter ?2. Do I have a case for defamation if the allegations are false ?
