JD, this question is about the court reporter and

For Paul JD, Paul this question is about the court reporter and transcripts. As far as the transcripts go, if at the trial a recording is used as evidence and played at the trial should the recording be transcribed also? Just as if someone was talking. So when someone reads the transcripts without having the recording, they can read what was said in the recording.

The Florida Fire Marshal is requiring all condos to comply

The Florida Fire Marshal is requiring all condos to comply with the NFPA 101 which is a rule passed in Boston and automatically adopted in Florida every 3 years.That rule states:4. Florida Fire Prevention Code, 5th Edition. These sections define “the requirements for a fire sprinkler system” and its applicability, and define “high-rise”.NFPA 101 Section 3.3.36.7 High Rise Building. A building where the floor of an occupiable story is greater than 75 ft (23 m) above the lowest level of fire department vehicle access.Florida Fire Sprinkler Association And American Fire Sprinkler Association – FL2 NFPA 101 Section 31.3.5.11.1 All high-rise buildings, other than those meeting 31.3.5.11.2 or 31.3.5.11.3, shall be protected throughout by an approved, supervised automatic sprinkler system in accordance with 31.3.5.2. not later than December 31, 2019.Please note that the law specifically states ALL HIGH RISE BUILDINGS. Therefore it seems that all high rise buildings not just condos should be subject to the law.However, the State appears to be pursuing only condos and allowing all others to disobey the law. That is illegal and can be changed by a writ of mandamus anytime.Am I right?

I refiled to take the exam for professional land surveyor.

HelloI refiled to take the exam for professional land surveyor. This will be my 3rd time. This time they required fingerprints. The search revealed I had a DUI in 2008 and had been arrested in 2009. I fulfilled all requirements of the DUI and the Judge after hearing the cercumstances of why I was arrested told me not to get in any more trouble of any kind and stayed on my charge. On the application I misread the requirements as to include any convictions in the last 2 years but as I have reread it and reread it the 2 years apply to something else. So now the board wants certified copies of complaint, plea and judgement, and sentencing. Also, an explaination as to why I didn't disclose this information. I could be denied licensing. Although I did not intentionally not disclose how should I move forward?

Is there a time limit as to how a judge has before answering

Is there a time limit as to how long a judge has before answering a letter. For example, I have just been involved with a legal matter and was already conceived. But the opposing party is unsatisfied with the court Judgement Order and is now, writing a letter asking for permission for a motion to reconsider. On the other hand, my attorney have made our reply letter to the judge to deny the other party's letter, but to this day, still no answer from the court. The Judgement was entered on June 1, 2016. The opposing party's letter to the judge was filed July 07, 2016 and our letter was sent June 17,th 2016.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MinnesotaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No the only thing filed after the entry of the judgement order were the two corresponding letters to the judge.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Yes, during the actual date of trial, the judge gave the parties two choices: A. Do a receivership or B. continue with a Binding arbitration without the right to appeal. We choose to do a binding arbitration without appeal, but apparently, the other party is trying to make light of the issues already presented in court.
