I live outside city limits of Cedar Park Texas in an ETJ. A

Hi there, I live outside city limits of Cedar Park Texas in an ETJ. A specific noise from a piece of construction equipment (mechanical earth tamper) causes a uneasy, seasick sensation that is actually very painful to me. Not many neighbors experience the same sensation. Its in the "infrasound" range. Its hard to explain, but it makes me dizzy, makes almost impossible to work, very disconcerting feeling. It has started at 7am, ended at 5pm for past 3 months.I am about to go crazy, it really is a painful feeling that makes me feel so uncomfortable. My house and office are unlivable. What can I do?

I already asked this question yesterday. But I do not see it online. I therefore repeat it today.To what extent is the insurer of a Florida Condo Association liable under the Directors and Officers Liability Policy for libel?Scenario: Director A libels Director B. A use B. B turns to the Insurer to defend. Does the insurer:1. Review the matter to determine whether the suit is justified before defending?2. Defend anyway and wait for a verdict?3. If and when the case is lost, is the Insurer liable for damages? (That seems insane)Logic would dictate that item # 1 above should prevail. Or at worst the insurer should not be liable for any libel award.

What are the best ways to find a civil litigation attorney on a contingency basis?And when you have no direct evidence, but there is no other better explanations (therefore if it is not him who did it, or if it is not done this way, then what would it be), what is the best approach to go? - Subpoena to question people and see if they have a reasonable explanation or it is full of contradictions and lies?By law is hard evidence a must; or it will be considered a truth if everything add up together and it looks obvious this way even there is no direct evidence?

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.

A judge has not gotten back to us in three weeks about an injunction we are waiting for .We legally do have a deed for parking in front of our commercial building and the business next door has blocked all our parking. Recently, they had the fire dept. Suddenly Put a fire lane after 15 years in front of our store parking. We have no parking for customers at all.There has been cross easement and a legal document proving this all the years we have been there,and suddenly they are allowed to put in a fire lane, and they also put up signs that have not allowed our customers park in front of their building. The document state cross parking for the 3 buildings.For 18 months they have gotten away with this. They continue to do this so we go out of business. No local lawyer will take our case because of conflict of interest. The owner is pals with everyone in city hall. We had to go to another town for a lawyer. And now the judge isn't and hasent got back on a ruling?We had one lawyer, in the town early on ,and paid 2,000 dollars to him, and then he dropped us, "conflict of interest." ️No local lawyer wanted the case and now the judge won't rule?We are not allowed to contact the judge we were told.
