    I understand how difficult it can be dealing with third party risk assessment handlers for big companies like Ruby's. Ruby's has a legal responsibility to make it's floor safe to walk on and the negligence of their staff can make Ruby's liable. You have two years from the date of your injury to file a lawsuit, although its possible to settle the case prior to filing a lawsuit. My office is in Newport Beach.

    No. The certified copy of the court disposition document most likely only contains the docket report of all of the events occurring in the court case, such as the list of charges, the date of arraignment, plea terms etc. but does not contain a police report or the "arrest details."

    If you wish to obtain a Public Defender to assist you in your representation, you will need to let the Judge know prior to entering a plea. When the Judge calls your case, just state "I wish to apply for the public defender." The judge will then usually give you a financial declaration to fill out to see whether you qualify, based on your financial status. If approved, the Judge will appoint the public defender and he or she will advise you on your plea and attempt to negotiate your minor...

    A PC 991 Motion can be made either orally or in writing, there is no requirement that it be done either way.

My preference is to request such a hearing orally on the spot at the arraignment but to set the hearing for the matter a...

If its solely due to traffic infractions, then no, you will not violate your DUI probation by getting too many traffic infractions. However, your licenses was suspended due too many points because of any new misdemeanors, then you could be in violation of your DUI probation.
