1. Report it to HR. They have to have a chance to resolve it.
2. If it persists and you want to take action, call the NERC and file a claim. The EEOC does not handle orientation based claims. http://detr.state.nv.us/nerc.htm
If they do something against your employment AFTER you file your claim, that's another claim called retaliation.
Agreeing with the above posters, your insurance should defend your interests in this case. Make a claim on your policy if you haven't already.
It is possible that you are released from any direct personal liability though, because you are not related to your friend's brother. You will need a defense lawyer to guide you through that process.
You will want to have your attorney file a new plan for confirmation that adjusts your plan payment to be based only your income. You will have to maintain the payments yourself.
It might also be a chance to see if you qualify for a chapter 7 as well, if that is better for your situation.

You definitely need to hire a private lawyer there in LA.
It is not likely that they will pursue charges if they indicated they wouldn't and they sent a civil demand. Jail would have been more likely if they would have taken you in cuffs right away. As far as order, the police would actually write the report from the victim's statement, and then submit it to the county to "press charges" against you in juvenile court, so the police would know first. You will probably be off probation before any appearance if they do start.
Anything is possible...
Unless you're in a situation where there is already insurance offering to cover this, I would anticipate a fight with the insurance company about whether the dog's presence/interference *caused* you to fall off or not. That's an obvious problem.
While I can't speak for NJ, here in Las Vegas we have many DUIs where the defendant lives out of state or moves during the case. The courts here will let a defendant complete an equivalent program in their home state.
Community service can usually be done at any 501(c)(3) registered non-profit, as long as they are not on the banned provider list.
She needs to have her attorney call the court clerk in the New Jersey court department where her case is; a hearing may or may not be required.
Try the Civil Self Help Center at the RJC. http://www.clarkcountycourts.us/CivilSHC/index.html
The reality is that lawyers have to pay that too, so it's not as if the public is being set with an extra cost.
