The Canada Anti Spam Law (CASL) will allow private right of action against any SPAM source in Canada and the USA, for a Canadian plaintiff. The contemplated defendant, a New York State Car dealership, sends me spam weekly for over 2 years. Email r...
You really need the input of a New York litigator. Last time I tried to domesticate a D.C. default judgment in NY, I had to use some fairly advanced gyrations to get it recorded. NY law at least used to disfavor foreign judgments, making plaintiffs re-prove their cases (under US law) before recording judgment. While I think there is a treaty involving Canadian judgments, that has to be harder than domesticating a D.C. judgment. Good luck. Spam cases are a bunch of work for too little reward.See question

I'm recharacterizing this as Criminal Law, because you need an Arizona licensed lawyer BEFORE you go visiting to pick up your ammunition, and this isn't a question that involves International Law.See question
My step-son is applying for a position as a police offer in Nova Scotia. The application requests personal information such as D.O.B. , place of birth, maiden names, current place of employment, etc. for relatives including step-siblings. He is as...
Neither the Canadian Government nor your step-son can compel you or your children's identity information. That would require the filing of an action in Canada, the issuance of Letters Rogatory to the United States, and the opening of a civil case in each place where the witnesses live. I suspect there would be no basis for the action in either Canada or the US courts. Further, if the Canadian Government was really that interested, they could get most of that information for under $10 (U.S., not Canadian) from an Internet search engine without even calling the Mounties or the FBI.
Your step-son should enter the information he has and write in that he doesn't know whatever he doesn't know. He should be honest both in revealing what he knows and not concealing what he doesn't know, but I'm sure relationships affected by re-marriages and step-siblings is as confusing in Canada as it is in the United States.See question
Discovery in my civil case closed on April 24, 2017. Defendant's attorney waited until the last minute to send its discovery responses to me on March 24, 2017 which was due on April 24, 2017 ( my 30 days per rules and also the last day of discover...
The benefit of counsel and more information about the context would be of great assistance in this. The question might be reformulated as whether the defendant will be able to extend discovery and whether the closure of discovery applies to the continuing obligation to supplement discovery answers. As to the first, discovery rules in all of my practice jurisdictions permit a judge to extend deadlines, and, in DC, that is usually done quite liberally. Many courts in the region expect opposing counsel to work out extensions informally between them. But, if you are prejudiced by the extension and have good cause, you can assert that through a motion for protective order or awaiting and opposing defendant's motion to compel. One decent argument might be that your motion for summary judgment, which was timely, would be made unripe by the untimely request for extension. I suspect you will lose that motion in DC Superior Court before most judges, but you may assert your reliance on the Court's deadlines, and you might persuade the Court to enforce them.
If defendant timely posed discovery, you have a continuing obligation to supplement, even after the closure of discovery up through the entry of a verdict. If your initial responses were insufficient, I suspect most judges would compel complete responses, and I have seen judges do that the week before trial.See question

Of course, there is a potential case against the seller, both brokers, and the title company that closed the deal. What you need to do is sit down with a qualified lawyer to determine whether your facts get you to that case and, more importantly, what to do in the meantime to protect your legal interests and have a place to live.See question
I HAVE A SSN BECAUSE I USED TO LIVE AND WORK IN THE US, BUT I CURRENTLY LIVE IN VENEZUELA, TO CREATE A CORPORATION TO SELL IN AMAZON, DO I NEED TO GET A EIN? OR CAN I USE MY SSN?
You are not required to have a SSN to create or own a US corporation. You are not permitted to form or own an S-Corporation, but other forms of corporation are permitted, and citizenship or residency is not a factor. You will need to obtain an FEIN for the entity, but that is easily obtained on-line from the IRS during or after formation.See question
If I am a United States citizen and wanted to start an online casino in another country and collect my income from a bank in the same country the online gambling site for actual money is in, is this legal to do? Do I have to move to the country I ...
I haven't researched this, and it would be foolish to open any form of casino without compliance counsel who is advising you while reading the relevant statutes, but I'm fairly sure you can't operate the casino from anywhere in the United States, and that includes sitting in the US when you form, fund, or communicate with it. More interesting is whether you are "in" the US if one of the servers gets repeated on a mirrored server in the US, particularly if that mirrored server is just the DNS server. In short, the foreign casino can't have anything in the US, including gamblers.See question
Can 18 US 241 lawsuit be filed in Federal District Court? Or is such violation needs to be reported to FBI?
There are civil remedies available at both the state and federal level for Ku Klux Klan type intimidation addressed by 18 USC section 241, but that Code section is a criminal conspiracy statute. You should report crimes to the police, and you should see a private lawyer in the affected jurisdiction to seek civil redress of your damages. In any event, this is a Civil Rights or Litigation matter and not a matter involving International practice.See question

While I agree with my learned colleague that the current Administration appears to be hostile to aliens, especially from Central America, that appears to be the opposite of your problem. The issue is whether you are required to visit more, and you'd like to not visit at all. Putting the politics aside, you are in a tough spot. International marriages and their resultant divorce and custody issues are difficult on all sides. But, to be precise, it is unlikely that the court is ordering you to travel to the US twice a year. More likely, the baby is being required to visit his father twice a year, because fathers are very important to developing children. You are required to make that happen if you wish to retain custody and live in Central America. It is likely that the court's order could be modified to surrender custody to the father, and then the court could not require you to go anywhere. The only issue of international law this presents is about international custody jurisdiction, and the custodial order issued by the court where the child resided at the time of the separation is enforceable.See question
Us Marshal arrest warrants
The. US Marshalls Service isn't charged with enforcement of many laws, though I believe they historically have broad authority. In most regions, their principal criminal enforcement duties involve Bail Reform Act enforcement (bail jumping), federal imprisonment and misprison (like in the movie, The Fugitive), and protection of federal judges. But, you might want to get a consult with a criminal law practitioner in Houston and explore whether anyone might be looking for you. Alternatively, you might approach the deputy (slowly, with your hands plainly visible and dressed in something that isn't baggy) and ask him if you can help him with something.
I've changed the practice area to Criminal Law. I don't believe the Marshalls do any international law that I can think of offhand.See question
