    No. All California lawyers are not afraid of suing Disney. If in fact all California lawyers refuse to take your case, it might be a problem other than the fact that Disney is a defendant. Sorry to be flippant, but cases are all driven by facts. You state at the end that the case involves a number of serious allegations, any of which might lead to liability. Without the underlying facts, lawyers can't give you an idea of what is wrong. Good luck.

    In Arizona, you should initially disclose the witnesses and then amend as you find out their addresses and phone numbers. It is an ongoing process in terms of disclosure.

    Double jeopardy is a term that applies to criminal cases. You cannot be charged for the same crime if you prevail on the merits. You are referring to the concept or res judicata. If you have been sued in court and a judgment has been rendered (if a dismissal with prejudice) or there is a resolution on the merits, then the case has been decided and it controls the outcome between the parties for all other cases based upon the same facts. If they won the first case, they may seek to collect...

    The legal action that would potentially fit these facts is false arrest. The elements of false arrest are (1) arrest and custody (2) without probable cause. Under your scenario, there may be questions of fact. The officer may have probable cause if you have a powerful stereo which was blasting and causing the neighbors to be disturbed. The police report will reflect how they were contacted which should answer your question. You were drunk, so it will be your words against the most likely...

    You haven't give sufficient facts, but Arizona Revised Statutes Section 12-661 provides that there is vicarious for malicious or wilful misconduct of a child. I assume that your son didn't intend to hit the other party's car but that might apply. There is a family purpose doctrine which says that if a person is acting on behalf or his or family, the family may be held liable. If your child has had a lot of other problems and shouldn't be sent out, maybe there is a negligent supervision case....

    A motion for summary judgment should be filed as soon as you can legally prove that there are no genuine issues of material facts which would prevent a summary judgment. You are representing yourself which might make it harder for you to objectively determine whether the other side has any valid points which would prevent summary judgment, but you also have more knowledge of the facts which should be a help. Good luck.

    If what you say is true and you were innocent, you should be entitled to more than just lost wages. They must pay you for the experience of spending 8 and a half months in jail awaiting the acquittal. You should consult a Texas civil rights lawyer after you figure out who is good in your area as soon as possible.

    Your situation is very sad. That in today's society, people are that rude and refuse to refrain from their rudeness even when confronted. The tension arises as to whether the clerk was merely rude but is rude to everyone or whether he intended to be rude to you because of your color. If the second is true, then there is a civil rights violation assuming that the shop participates in interstate commerce. The next question is whether there are sufficient damages to justify your time and...

    Bankruptcy laws are designed to let people get a fresh start from overwhelming debt. Unfortunately, the price is that people who are owed money lose it. If there is fraud or intentional injury, there are exceptions within the Bankruptcy Code, however there are no exceptions for negligent drivers. If you want protection against irresponsible drivers, you have to buy uninsured motorists coverage. If you don't have that or at least property damage coverage, then you are out of luck.
