    Yes this is a violation of HIPPA and yes you can be sued. You need to immediately contact the other attorney and notify them of your error and ask them to return the medical records that pertain to the other patients.

    Darrell’s Answer

    It depends on your progress and the reason you missed the classes. You should be able to get re-enrolled in the class and you may be able to get credits for the classes you did. There is usually a re-enrollment fee of about $60. Bear in mind that the judge does have the option of deleting the program requirement and sending you to county jail but that is usually done when the person has fallen out of the program a couple of times.

    Darrell’s Answer

    The DUI is not considered a prior since you were a juvenile at the time of the DUI. It can only be used by DMV if you get arrested for DUI in the future. Also, your new case is for false ID and I am assuming so you can purchase alcohol. Most of the time those type of cases will be reduced to infractions if you do some community service. Get an attorney involved in your case and don't try to do this alone.

    Either hire an attorney to take your case to trial and if you cannot afford one then use the services of a public defender.

    Darrell’s Answer

    This makes no sense to me. If probation is expired, it is expired. The court no longer has jurisdiction over you. Are you in a diversion program per PC 1000?

    Darrell’s Answer

    If she attempts to sue, just turn it over to your homeowner's insurance carrier and let them deal with it. Whether she will prevail in her lawsuit is another thing.

  • What percentage of a retirement check can you take when ordered to pay restitution? That is only source of income.

    My wife is in prison. She is ordered to pay restitution when she gets out. We are both retired and receiving our retirement checks from PERS.

    Darrell’s Answer

    If she doesn't pay the restitution the option for the victim is to convert it to a civil judgment and that is a simple process. What is not so simple is collecting on the judgment. A retirement pension is exempt from levy. What that means is that they cannot obtain any funds from PERS to satisfy the judgment. They would have to go after other assets. I can't say how much of a percentage they would take.

    Darrell’s Answer

    I am assuming that you have joint legal custody and that your prior order or judgment specifies that you must confer on matters involving the childrens school. If he is refusing to allow you to enroll the kids in a school near you then you will need to file a Order to Show Cause Re Modification and ask the court to let you do it. You should attempt mediation first to see if a family law mediator can resolve the issue before proceeding with the OSC.
