City of West Allis, Wisconsin Spouse received a citation for

City of West Allis, WisconsinSpouse received a citation for DC with a weapon. He pleaded not guilty and has already met with the Assistant DA where it was not resolved. A trial date has been set.Asst DA refused to give any more than five minutes of her time. Told him she had too many other people to see, said "end of discussion" and walked out.Spouse cannot afford an attorney for a trial. He is on disability. I work though, so not sure if we would qualify for a free public defender or something like that.What should he do now? Since a trial date has been set and I am told that the date cannot be changed because they now have already started the process of sending out summons to the officers and other parties. What if other parties do not show up? Is it too late to just pay the original citation and make this go away?

I ignorantly sold $634 in merchandise with lyrics that were not mine. I am being asked by the writer's attorney for $3,000 settlement to cover damages and attorney fees. Is this amount reasonable? I am a tiny part-time hobby seller who did something stupid and didn't think about it until I got the letter.

My Medical Mal case was lost in the seattle superior court.

My Medical Mal case was lost in the seattle superior court. I feel that my mother, who was the injured person..delay of stroke 5 hours, in a stroke certified hospital was wronged. At the end, the ER Doctor, admitted that because my mother had group health insurance, he could not treat her stroke and it is the policy between Overlake Hospital and Group Health that the group health patients must be seen by Group Health Doctors. So, my mother had to wait 40 minutes before the group health neurologist showed up. It was delay, and she missed her window to be treated with IV tpa which is the only FDA approved treatment for a stroke (3-4 hour window).JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in?Customer: Washington State. Can we appeal our case?JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Could my mom's case be civil right because she was descriminated with her insurance?

Can evidence entered by the Prosecution during trial be

Can evidence entered by the Prosecution during trial be corrected during appeal? Or is that evidence closed and must remain. For example, they can not change dates of medical records and claim that they were a typo? I'd venture to think evidence must remain as entered and if it creates serious doubt as far as the verdict is concerned, there must be a new trial.
