I am sorry for this dilemma. But not sure I understand your specific question. Are you asking about how sovereign immunity works (the law that limits your ability to sue the state)?

no just the city
Lawyer: P. Simmons, Attorney replied 11 months ago

The city is the same as the state...

Lawyer: P. Simmons, Attorney replied 11 months ago

They are both political subdivisions.

So when you try to sue the city, it is EXACTLY the same as trying to sue the state.
Did you have a question regarding this?

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
