    Contact any attorney in your area to discuss the situation, let that attorney determine if you have any causes of action....any civil litigation attorney.

    There does not appear to be anything here. No conflicts, no civil causes of action.

  • When state judicial officers directly suppress clearly defined constitutional rights, when should the matter go to federal cour

    when state judicial officers directly suppress clearly defined constitutional rights, and their ruling directly violate the federal constitution, should i keep going in state court, or take into federal court

    Rixon’s Answer

    Best if you sit down with an attorney and go over the details of circumstances of your case, and let the attorney do the legal analysis, develop the legal conclusions, and identify and develop what if any legal course of action you may have.

    Rixon’s Answer

    Sounds to me like you have a strong defense, provide documents and bring your landlord along when you should have no problem.

  • Were my rights violated?

    I was arrested for allegedly stealing a car with another person. Upon arrest I was placed in handcuffs while still laying on my stomach with no resistance and I did not attempt to evade the police. Throughout the arrest the arresting officer shout...

    Rixon’s Answer

    Terrible. What you describe would be a violation of your rights.

    It's unlikely to impact the charges against you and unless you have physical injury resulting, there is no civil cause of action worth your trouble.

  • Old speeding ticket from 2009 and Warrant from Texas

    I have an old speeding ticket from 2009 in Texas when I used to live in San Antonio. Before I moved i tried to pay the ticket but lost citation, and they did not have me in any of there records when i called so I assumed that was that. fast forwar...

    Rixon’s Answer

    Attempting to pay a ticket is not sufficient. You're going to need to contact the Texas attorney spend money for that, and you may or may not get the fines reduced unfortunately. If you don't take care of the ticket you might be arrested in any state next time you get any kind of minor traffic citation or involvement with police.

  • Can I do anything about this my whole court and legal system in my town is very crooked and needs attention brought to it

    I had an agreement with a friend to let him pawn something he was supposed to pick it up ne didn't then he lied and said he paid on it but didn't and I finally told him give me the ticket so I could go retrieve it and he prohibited me from getting...

    Rixon’s Answer

    While I understand the dynamics of small town legal system, cronyism, nepotism etc. nothing you posted here sounds "crooked".

    My take away from your post here is that a friend screwed you over, you made up a lie in order to involve the police, and got in trouble for making up the lie and or you had existing warrants(?). Were you expecting that would be able to successfully twist the system in order to get something out of it?

    You did not have to except the plea agreement, and fact I'm certain the judge and your lawyer or both explained to you the importance of being truthful with the court. If you plugged guilty, and you were not guilty, you lied again to the court.

  • What are the statue of limitations for filing a claim for false arrest, false imprisonment, due process and other civil rights v

    Was arrested falsely with very little investigation. 16 months after removing my children, charges were dismissed because of lack of evidence.

    Rixon’s Answer

    Police are not required to investigate before arresting. Charges being dismissed does not mean you were falsely accused, or falsely arrested or falsely imprisoned. Sounds like you got to process or the charges would not have been dismissed. None here can know whether you have a case on the one or two sentences of fact you have provided here. Why don't you sit down with a civil rights an attorney your area and discuss the timeline and what exactly happened, leave the legal conclusions to the lawyer.
