I have been trying to keep my personal and work related

I have been trying to keep my personal and work related information private for the past several years due to a past stalking incident that had resulted in a serious bodily injury. Whenever my personal information would be listed somewhere on the web, the site owner agreed to remove it, once contacted and appraised of my situation. This has worked in the past. Recently, however, my employer has discovered my desire for privacy and seems to keep trying to unnecessarily publish my info under the pretext of ‘recognition' ,'reports' etc (in my opinion, a retaliatory act for filing a complaint against the employer,)My question is, is there a court order that I could get that would prohibit them from publishing my information? Every time something like this is published, I break out in cold sweat and I'm paralyzed with fear and anxiety that my stalker would find me again. I have already put in several years of work with this company and don't want to have to quit my job and start over unless that is the only alternative.If going the court route is an option, please include instructions on how to do this and if there is a way to expedite the process. Once the information is accessed by my stalker, there's no point in having it removed.

I'm applying for a concealed weapons permit in Colorado. 15

I'm applying for a concealed weapons permit in Colorado. 15 years ago I was arrested, for 3rd degree assult was on probation did what the courts asked of me, then the case was dropped. I had an attorney get my records sealed. I know they do an FBI and a CBI (Colorado Bureau of Investigation) but that would limit me from getting my license would it???JA: Have charges been filed? Is there a prior criminal record?Customer: I was charged with 3rd degree assault Misdemeanor, it was a DV ordeal. but since it was my first offense, I was put on probation for 2 years, I only did 1 year of probation due to good behavior and everything was dropped. About 3 years after that even I went into the Military as well, and I'm still in. I haven't been arrested since for anything.JA: In what state did this occur?Customer: ColoradoJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I just didn't want to be disappointed if I was denied. But I work for the Department of Defense full time and reservist part time, you'd think I wouldn't have been able to come into the Military.

My husband was just subpoenaed from the DA regarding a

My husband was just subpoenaed from the DA regarding a domestic violence case that his friend committed. The friend kidnapped and beat the crap out of his estranged wife and then called my husband to tell him about it. My husband told him to take her home or let her go ASAP or I(me) would call the cops. 10 minuted later her and their daughter were on our doorstep. My husband does not want to be involved. He does not want to testify against his friend...his estranged wife (the victim) doesn't want my husband to get involved either. By him testifying means the difference between a 3 year sentence and a 15 yr sentence. He doesn't want that on his conscious for putting away his friend. The have all the evidence they need- pictures, doctors notes, hospital visits, testimony from other people. How can he get out of testifying???JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen? Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: great state of California...JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: It happened about 9 months ago. It's going to trial because the stupid idiot didn't take a plea!

I was arrested in Texas for possession of a controlled substance ie: small amount of pot. And 3 grams of hash oil, which is a felony. My lawyer has worked out a deal that I am going to be on probation here in Colorado for 3 years. Now in Colorado I have a legal medical card. The governor has signed in effect that if you are on probation here in Colorado with a medical marijuana card you will be allowed to continue useing medical marijuana. My lawyer in Texas says he doesn't know but that texas is stipulating that I can't use my medical marijuana card. Please let me know if its true that I will be allowed to continue use of my medical marijuana card.
