    Don't settle "out of court" without an attorney! They will take advantage of your son. Get a lawyer right away. It sounds like a strong case and back injuries can be more severe than you think. Call me if you need more advice!

    I am not exactly sure what you are saying here. It is clear that you are in trouble. If there is a charge pending against you, bail set and you do not show up, you may subject yourself to further prosecution for the crime of bail jumping. If no bail was set, a warrant will nonetheless be issued. If no charges have been filed against you and no warrant has been issued for your arrest, you are not necessarily committing a crime by not going down to the station to talk to the police. However,...

  6. I have been served a 'Notice of Action' for a defamation lawsuit. I can prove all my statements as true. Can I countersue?

    Truth is an absolute defense to defamation. If he is suing you to intimidate you and shut you up, a counterclaim is certainly in order, as would be filing a new lawsuit against him for malicious prosecution if the defamation case against you is dismissed. Sounds like the "hundreds of people" should contact the DA, Attorney General's Office or at least consult with an attorney as well!

    There is no easy answer to this question and I would need more information to give you a definitive response. Generally, statements that are contained in court pleadings, a complaint, etc., are not actionable as defamation. However, if there were defamatory statements made by your manager or director in another context, on the internet for example, you may have a claim for defamation for those statements. Please be aware, there are very strict statutes of limitations for defamation. Here in...

    Wow, regardless of the amount of the check, I would not let the contractor get away with that. You could file in small claims court if the amount is $5,000 or under. Your best proof will be the unsigned check!

  9. Is it legal to turn information gathered from book to a story ?

    An idea cannot be copyrighted. Nor can an inspiration. However, if you are essentially lifting the plot and changing the names of the characters to disguise the taking, you open yourself up to an infringement claim. Also, there is no relevant legal distinction between a book and a "story" if the story is written and published for plagiarism and copyright infringement purposes.
