The most important thing at this point is DO NOT SPEAK TO ANYONE other than an attorney. Anyone else can be compelled to testify against you. Do not discuss this matter with your friends, your neighbors, your parents, etc. My firm handles these types of cases on a regular basis and we answer the phone and e-mails nearly 24/7. Call multiple attorneys to get a sense of whether you have a good "fit" with the attorney.
This is an extremely serious matter and you should contact a criminal defense attorney right away. It really turns on the facts of the case, and I am unable to properly assist you without more detail. Many lawyers, including myself, offer free consultations and you can find our contact information on our Avvo profiles.
Matters often settle before trial - sometimes on the courthouse steps on the day of trial. So if you're asking because trial is approaching, I wouldn't lose any sleep over it. My colleague just settled a case with NYC just minutes before jury selection was set to begin. Good luck.
In New York all employment is at will, which means that you can be let go at anytime without cause. Ordinarily you have six years to sue for breach of contract, but there really is no such thing as an employment-at-will contract. You can sue for harassment and discrimination, and depending on the facts and the cause of action, you'd likely have three years, but you may have as little as one year - it depends on the facts and the cause of action asserted. Breach of contract is not a cause of...
You may - the reason I say that is that if your mechanic says that the damage was due to too much oil, Wal-Mart will come back and allege that you added more oil after.

If they don't, you can sue them in small claims court.
Have you discussed this matter with your lawyer? If not, that's the first step. It is unlikely the FBI will tell you the status of the case and so you don't have much to gain by calling. The agent who answers the phone will simply take your report and pass the information along to the investigating agent.
You can marry an American citizen but that will not automatically solve your immigration problems, and even if you get married to a U.S. citizen you can still get deported. You should speak to an immigration attorney about filing an I-130 immigrant petition, an I-485 adjustment of status form and an I-765 employment authorization request.
That sort of strong language shouldn't have any bearing on the proceedings though you may want to ask your attorney whether you should be filing a motion to strike the scandalous language from the pleadings. I attach a link to a brief of law which better explains what I mean, and which should shed some light on your question.
I agree with my colleague but just as importantly make sure you preserve the evidence. Do not throw the tuna or the fly carcasses away. Additionally, take pictures of the tuna can which it's still "fresh". You can find a good attorney on Avvo.
