  • In small claims court, can I force the Plaintiff to answer questions on the stand and can he force me? We are both Pro Se.

    Rixon’s Answer

    Smartest thing you can do at this point (and its free): go to small claims one morning and watch a few hours worth of cases.

  • 10 year disabily rule for vietnam veterans

    How can a vietnam vet get 100 disability for post traumatic stress 20 years after the war ended and the 1p year rule still applies. The government admits the ptsd was from1960s and the government choose to ignore these veterans so how does that ma...

    Rixon’s Answer

    Not surewhat you mean by "1p" rule. I assume you mean the 10 year rule--which has to do with an entirely different situation than PSTD.

    Your question is a bit confusing, even when a "10" is inserted for "1p". The Vietnam war officially ended 40 years ago. THe government is treating and compensation hundreds of thousands of Veterans for PSTD. If you have not applied for VA benefits, you need to do so. You can go it alone (not recommended) by going direct to VA, or you can use an Veteran service organization like DAV or American Legion--they have volunteers who know the ins and outs of the VA processes and they can help you apply and get the process rolling.

    Rixon’s Answer

    You asked the same question before. You are getting the same answers you got before. The answers are not going to change. You have to take the steps to advance your own case. If you don't do it properly, you may lose your opportunity altogether. This site cannot substitute for an attorney, if you're in federal court and suing the government you had better have an attorney- as a statistical matter without an attorney in federal court the odds of success for a pro se litigant are very low even if the litigant did know what they were doing.

  • Dental malpractice?

    Went in to get the perminant crown put on and he informed me that he did the crown and mold on the wrong tooth. The tooth next to it was the tooth I had the root canal on. He isn't charging me to do the crown that originally was suppose to be done...

    Rixon’s Answer

    Could be. That said, the general rule of thumb is no damages equals no suit. Little, or small damages equals no return on investment in a lawsuit. Sounds like your damages were not justify your time in attempting to sue. In addition, dental malpractice is very much a niche area of the law and there are very few attorneys who practice it regularly.

    Rixon’s Answer

    There probably are attorneys would consider helping you, but you're going to need to reach out to them, doesn't work other way around.

    That said, the judge enjoys absolute immunity from all actions taken on the bench.

    Due process is the opportunity to be heard.
    Sounds like you had your opportunity.

    Being treated rudely by the staff is not grounds to sue.
