Yes -- Maryland's law controls as this is the state in which the accident occurred.See question
I have a date for rent court on Friday. The 19th how long after the hearing do I have to move out
The Petition for Warrant of Restitution cannot be filed until the following Friday; after that the Sheriff will schedule the eviction. You will be given proper notice of said eviction once it has been scheduled. This can take a week or two from the court date at a minimum.See question
Not sure totally what happen? I think she was talking loud because she thought they were being un fair!
It depends on the specific statute -- which may or may not involve jail time. If this is a first offense, it's possible that the State's Attorney could recommend probation; if this is not a first offense, the penalties could be harsher. You should consult an attorney for a thorough review of the facts, as often an attorney can negotiate with the prosecutor.See question

If your case was settled, you should have already received the funds. If your accident occurred in August, 2011...then limitations has likely expired to sue additional parties.See question

Unfortunately, pro se litigants are held to the same standards as attorneys -- if you had every opportunity to file the memorandum and didn't, there's probably not much you can do. You might want to file a Motion for Reconsideration WITH the memorandum. However, I highly doubt a court will read 100 pages if you cannot give the LEGAL reasons as to why JNOV should be granted.See question
what's the legal amount of time of notice the landlord must give you to move out on a yearly lease please help
Your lease controls -- but the minute you're late on rent, your landlord can file a Failure to Pay Rent action in the District Court. Most leases, however, require at least 30 days.See question

Maryland is an "at will" employment state, which means you can be terminated for any reason or no reason at all so long as you are not a member of a protected class and so long as the motive for your termination wasn't discriminatory. Absent a written contract defining a set term for employment, it's likely that your employer was within its rights to let you go.See question
We filed a Complaint for Absolute Divorce together with the Answer at the court on 4/14. When are we likely to hear back regarding a date for the court hearing and when is that likely to be? If we need to change the date as we both travel a lot fo...
If you need to change the court date, you will have to file a motion for postponement with the court stating the reason(s) why you need a continuance. In many jurisdictions, the assignment clerk may call you to verify your availability before setting a trial date. If you do need to file a motion, I would suggest that it be jointly filed by both parties or a "consent" motion filed with the consent of the other party, as the court will usually grant it if both parties take no issue with a postponement.See question
Can an active Rent Escrow Case stop an eviction Scheduled through Warrant of Restitution and Breach of Lease?
Unlikely -- it's comparing apples and oranges. If a court already found you to be in breach of lease, ruled in your landlord's favor, and issued a warrant of restitution, then there's really nothing you can do to stay in the property.See question

You will spend far more time and effort than what this case is worth if you try to sue the ATM company and/or the merchant. You should present the original receipt to your debit card company as verification that no funds were dispensed.See question
