  1. Do rulings issued in the 9th circuit apply to me in the 7th circuit?

    The answer is "it depends." The federal courts end up interpreting federal laws but also state laws for the states which are in their respective circuits. From time to time different circuits interpret statutes, administrative rules, constitutional provisions and even other court cases differently. Like the other answer, I strongly suggest hiring an attorney to give you an opinion as to what the state of the law is in the 7th circuit on whatever point of law you are interested in.

    Remove the plastic from the meat and eat the sandwich before it goes bad or throw it away. I wouldn't even suggest going tot the grocery store about it because the time it would take and how foolish you might appear in asking for something makes the option unappeling. I suspect you could safely return the sandwich and ask for a new one without a problem and without appearing foolish. No, there is no lawsuit or claim for anything here. The sandwich-maker somehow overlooked removing a piece...

  3. Do I have to put down my felony conviction on an application. Even if it says been convicted of a felony in the past 7 years

    Follow the letter of the question. Were you convicted (that is, did you enter a guilty, no contest or Alford plea and have the judge find you guilty OR were you convicted at trial) in the past 7 years? If yes, then disclose. If not, then do not. That is the semi-arbitrary line this employer has chosen to draw for considering applicants.

    The odds of your mother winning a contest 2 years after her death seem remote for several reasons. You should look at the materials you received for her with a very skeptical eye because they might well be a scam. You should forward the materials to the personal representative for your mother's estate because if there are any winnings, it will be your mother's estate which wins whatever it is. This asset might need to be sold to pay off creditors if she had any or else it would be distibuted...

    I agree with the previous answers BUT the law is a bit more nuanced than those answers indicate. The statute of limitations is different for certain specific offenses and the statute of limitations may be "tolled" (i.e. pushed back) in certain circumstances. If you have not already done so, I strongly suggest hiring an attorney pre-charging to explore the situation with you and explain your options and what might happen in the future.

    Attorney Witt is exactly correct; she should hire a criminal defense attorney NOW and try to influence the DA's charging decision. Focusing on paying restitution now may or may not be helpful and could possibly be harmful depending on the facts.

    Good advice from the other attorneys. Pick a major you are interested in but give yourself a fairly broad background. Take a couple challenging math classes, a logic course, classes about history, a sociology class or two, psychology courses, philosophy, and a variety of other courses to make you a well-rounded individual. If you have any interest at all in intellectual property law, be sure to get a science-based bachelor of science degree so you could sit for the patent bar if you decide...

    They probably won't dismiss and you will probably have a warrant out for years to come. Every time you gete pulled over for something, you will face being taken into custody for a week or two until Florida makes up its mind. The fact that Florida is not willing to pay to have you driven or flown down does not mean they are about to dismiss the charges. You could go and face the charges voluntarily or hire an attorney down there to see if something could be worked out. Good luck.

    I suspect that will fail but the judge might cut her some slack if she is smart in how she handles this. If your daughter is unable to check her blind spot or respond promptly to various stimuli (i.e. sights and sounds) as she drives, her driving is inhibited and she is being reckless, precisely the evil the statute seeks to avoid. Get her an early christmas present, a bluetooth headset that works with her phone, and have her take the headset to the court. Have her point out (in a polite,...

    Potentially you could sue him for 30% of whatever the business is worth based on what you are saying. You should consult a business litigation attorney about what you can do under these circumstances.
