    It is impossible to tell from the information you have posted here. You may have a case, but you will need to meet with an attorney who specializes in civil rights cases.

  2. Does this case prove selective prosecution? The facts are very accurate. My rights were not being recognized anyway.

    No. The judge "talked to you like a punk" and then you "abandoned your daughter at the courthouse on purpose"? You might ask yourself, why does the judge talk to me like I'm a punk? You never get a second chance to make a first impression, which is what is happening here - as opposed to "gender bias."

    You need to retain an attorney to help you with this. You have ZERO chance on your own. Best of luck.

    This is a BIG question and you should probably see a lawyer. Yes, you should plead any possible affirmative defenses in your answer, but you don't need to cite to case law. What defenses you should plead really depends on the type of case and what defenses are available to you.

    It is always possible, but, unlikely in the scenario you have described. Best to speak to a lawyer if you are concerned about being charged.

    Depending on the value of the car, you may want to consider proceeding in small claims court. I'm not sure what you mean by "insurance settlement." If you mean the settlement from your own carrier, you can still seek damages from the driver. If you already took a settlement from the driver's carrier, you have likely signed away your right to get more.

    You need to contact your insurance. If you don't have insurance, contact a local lawyer. You will have several options, but I don't want to speculate without more information,

    You could certainly be charged at a later time. I would go see a local criminal defense attorney for a consultation.

    You might be able to sue for nuisance, but it is unlikely the damages awarded for one month of inconvenient noise would be enough to cover the attorney fees. Not to mention that you would have a difficult case, since 8am to 6pm is standard working hours for construction.

    I think it is extraordinarily unlikely such a lawsuit would be successful, but you should call some local lawyers.
