I live in Dubai, my nephew likes some monster mask on ebay but she's from embargoed countries. Can l buy it from Dubai, and send it to her country by post or something or it's illegal because sanctions/embargoes say people of embargoed countries c...
If you, an American resident or guest, send an embargoed item, particularly of computer technology, around an embargo through a transshipment through a neutral party, I think you have some fairly serious exposure. I would not send anything to North Korea or Iran (or any other embargoed country) without a written legal opinion that it was not a violation of the embargoes. Double that for computer equipment sent to countries developing nuclear technology. Even if your specific plan is legal (and it sounds like it is not), the defense costs to avoid an extended stay at Leavenworth may be prohibitive.See question

I agree with Mr. Isquith that you aren't giving us much to go on, so it's a wild guess, but Mr. Podesta is licensed counsel in your own state of Georgia, and he knows that Georgia marshalls serve process. Which agency to do that varies across the country, so I'd go with the wild guess of a local counsel. Service could be of a civil suit or anything else, like a domestic order or summons. Also, in some locations, enforcement of judgments is supervised by marshalls, but they'd be unlikely to stalk you.
In my jurisdictions, sheriffs or marshalls aren't police, so such an investigation is less likely.
Why not walk up to them -- slowly, peaceably, and with your hands visible and empty -- and ask them?See question
In a world economy influenced by international terrorism, the desire for privacy has in most cases yielded to the need of responsible nations and institutions to track the sources of terrorist financing. Truly anonymous international transfers will be very difficult. But, if your objective isn't to conceal terrorist financing, there may well a ways to build a financing structure that observers other than the authorities will find inscrutable and you will find convenient. Sit down for an hour with a qualified lawyer and discuss your objectives frankly.See question
Hedge Fund manager established in Singapore. Interested in knowing about incorporating second fund in Delaware and making investments/reporting returns in US.
There is no way to cover this in an on-line forum. As Mr. Harris notes, there are many Federal securities laws that apply almost immediately, and you simply cannot get by without a securities law compliance officer. Though I loved securities law in school, I don't qualify. It's a legitimate specialty, and where you pick that specialist is going to matter, because State securities laws are going to apply. I believe that new funds should manage that team by retaining corporate counsel. Where the fund is international, like yours, a business lawyer with Initernational Law experience will help. There will surely be many blogs and other resources on the Web about hedge funds, there is no way you can manage compliance and registration and licensing without counsel. Good luck.See question
Is it feasible that the City attorney prosecutes a private citizen for removing a privately owned shopping cart off of private store property when the private store does not complain ,but a policeman arrested and searched a customer (nothing fo...
I'm confused. Were you charged? With what? By whom? Where? If you were charged, there is a complaining witness, though a defendant doesn't need to be told who that is at time of arrest.

If there is no extradition treaty between country A and country B, and a country A citizen goes to country B as a tourist, and does something which is not considered a crime there, but is considered a crime in country A, can police of country A ar...
Mr. Schrader's response is excellent. The only point I'll re-emphasize is that country A may exercise it's sovereignty as in accordance with its laws and procedures. You need to consult with a lawyer from country A.See question

Is it a criminal offense for a UK national to wire transfer all his money from the United States in order to prevent a creditor from taking this in the United States? His UK lawyers have advised him not to participate in the lawsuit in the United ...
Mr. Schrader is spot on, as some Brits say. I doubt it's a criminal issue, but a little research based on the state and the facts alleged might be worthwhile in wire fraud, which is criminal, and fraudulent transfer, which usually is not. If, for example, the US funds were alleged to be the proceeds of a criminal conspiracy, I can imagine a prosecutor seeking to extend jurisdiction. And, if the state court has personal jurisdiction over you because you are still here, I can imagine a civil order to return funds to the US followed by a conviction for criminal contempt when you refuse. This is all high stakes and fact specific stuff, and a consult in the state where you are being sued is indicated. I also think you might get better advice in another category, so I moved your question.See question
For a US District Court Civil action, how does one serve an out-of-state defunct corporation which is administratively dissolved in its state of residency?
I'd need more facts to know, but your best route may be to name the principals of the corporation as successors in interest to the corporation, joint tortfeasors, the real parties in interest after piercing the veil.See question

If I understand your scenario correctly, you need to file a timely notice of appeal, not a reconsideration. The Rules do not provide for a Reply (the correct name for a response to an opposition), and they certainly don't apply to a Rebutter (the correct name for a response to an Reply). While the court might vacate and consider your Rebutter if you show the service problem promptly, don't bet on it. In the meantime, the clock is ticking on a timely notice of appeal, and missing that date by one day is jurisdictional. It means it is over (but for some exceptions mostly described in Rule 60).
You need a lawyer for this, but you don't have the time to get one. File your Notice of Appeal and seek a lawyer for the appeal.See question
