My tenants had an illegal large marijuana growing operation

My tenants had an illegal large marijuana growing operation going on in the California rental house, which I was unaware of. I confronted them and told them they had to move out and rather than filing the 3 day eviction notice they agreed to forfeiting their security deposit so that they could stay the final 2 months of rent paid in advance. Now they are taking me to small claims court over the security deposit as I did not file a letter in 3 weeks but rather considered our verbal agreement binding. Do I have any chance of fighting this?

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! I live in MASS btw.JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MassachusettesJA: Do you need to appear in court?Customer: It's not a criminal ticket.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: How much do you charge for the lawyer??JA: I'm not sure of the exact price, but there's only a $5 deposit.

3 years ago a neighbor accused me of spilling gasoline on

3 years ago a neighbor accused me of spilling gasoline on his property, the fire investigators did find that that there was gas and wanted to question me because I live right next door. I refused to talk and the police were then called. I told them I had nothing to do with the accusations and they left. Now my neighbor is again threatening to file attempted arson charges which he has 7 years to do so in new York state. my first question is even though he didn't have me arrested at the time wouldn't the police and fire investigators arrested me and second is it likely the DA would prosecute?

Can I take an RV dealer to small claimes for unacceptable

Can I take an RV dealer to small claimes for unacceptable repair work. We are full time RVers and had our 5th wheel Toy Hauler, ramp door, rebuilt at Neals Motorsports, Long Prairie, Mn. The job was too big for this dealer to attempt, but was not apparent until completed and the door is now excessively over weight to pick up manually. Way over weight as to the standard ramp door. I ask for my money refunded so as to go somewhere and get it repaired proper. So far Neal Biermaier, owner, is saying no refund even though the ramp is weigh over weight due to too much plywood applied. There are many more details that make this story even more terrible. So, is this a doable situation. I have never done anything like this, but this work is terrible at best. The estimate was stated as about $1,000. And ended up at $1,800.68. Which I paid after complaining as we had to leave town to get to South Dakota. Is this a situation for small claimes, and can I win? Waiting to hear from you. Thank you. ***** Does your answer cost? Nothing is free as they say.

I reside in Montana. I am currently being questioned as a

I reside in Montana. I am currently being questioned as a potential witness in a sexual assault case. The accuser was a former co-worker and we became friends through work. I confided in her of my marital problems and it sounded like she was going through a similar situation. She had told me that she had an affair a few months prior to our becoming friends. She became flirtatious with me and eventually our relationship became physical. Then the man she had an affair with allegedly raped her which she confided in me about. I advised her to report it which she did. She had sent me texts during the same day of the incidence telling me of the assault on her. Things cooled off between us and eventually she was let go from where I work. A few month have passed and she decided to push the rape charges. Now I am being questioned by the defense for the accused. I told them that she had confided in me about the rape but I left out any details of our physical relationship bad our texts back and forth. Can I get in trouble for providing a less than true statement to the defense attorney and investigator while not under oath? Will the defense subpoena my phone records and is there any way I can keep myself from having to go to court and being put in the stand? Should I just come clean about our physical relationship? Thanks.

My landlord is unbelievable. He comes into my house whenever

My landlord is unbelievable. He comes into my house whenever he wants, uses my water without asking to power wash the deck without telling me he is going to, puts me down, belittles me in emails, and ten times more. He changed the electri it's to his name without telling me, even though he knew I had a medical alert on it, almost killing me! (Well, not really, but it was bad.) He changed the lease after I signed it. I have threatened to call the sheriff,called the Sherriff, who told me to get an attorney. I met with a (useless) attorney. I threatened to file a lawsuit. I gave him a opportunity to cure. He ignored all of it. I filed the lawsuit for multiple causes of action. His attorney called me and advised me to get legal counsel, I told him this was an easy lawsuit to win and I don't need an attorney. The landlord STILL. comes in the house whenever he wants, still steals my water, showed up with plants to plant. (I told him I take care of the yard. Go away.) I pay $3800 per month! Not a typo! What else can I do to stop him from going into my house when he thinks no one is at home and doing whatever he wants? Can I file a restraining order?
