In a trial court where Judge is a former Prosecutor and the City Prosecutor against me, should I be worried about Injustice in the court room? Should I start working on the process of "Removable of Judge" in my trial case against me?
No. Judges (and prosecutors) have a code of ethics they must abide by. While their prior job might color their thinking, knowingly or unknowingly, they must follow prior case law and the Ohio Revised Code. If a judge doesn't, you can appeal a trial court decision.
If you are facing criminal charges, retain a competent criminal defense attorney. Don't go it alone.See question

Your verbal agreement was an oral contract and yes, you can bring suit in an Ohio court to enforce the contract between you and this individual.
Keep in mind that under Ohio law, a small claims court claim cannot be brought for more than $3,000. So if he owes you more than that amount, you'd have to file a claim elsewhere.See question

I agree with the answers provided by my fellow attorneys. It is important to reiterate that you first should meet with a personal injury attorney. Often injury attorneys will agree to meet with a prospective client for free, for the purposes of determining if the would-be client has a valid claim. Injury attorneys commonly work on a contingency basis, meaning they don't bill hourly - instead they take a percentage of your recovery, if any.
If you negotiate with the insurance company of your apartment complex, you do so at your own risk.See question

You'd be best served by talking to an attorney in your area who focuses on civil litigation, including personal injury and workers compensation law. Were you on the job when the collision happened? Without knowing details - including details of your employment situation, it is difficult to determine whether you have a valid claim for wrongful termination or whether you have a traditional personal injury claim or workers comp claim.
It is important that you realize that your employers insurance company has your employer's best interests in mind - not yours. If you do not retain legal counsel they may try to talk you into accepting far less compensation then would offer you if you had an attorney.See question

You likely have a cause of action under the Ohio Consumer Sales Practices Act, which does allow a plaintiff to receive up to $5,000 in non-economic (emotional distress, pain, suffering, etc) damages. The Ohio CSPA allows a consumer to recover for unfair or deceptive sales practices.
However, you need to determine if filing a lawsuit against her is a productive use of your time and money. How much money did you pay her? Do you know where she is residing currently? If you didn't pay her very much money and are unable to locate her, this could be more trouble than its worth.
Good luck to you.See question

If you feel you are entitled to monetary compensation, file the case yourself in your local small claims court. Cases in small claims court are for money damages only, with a cap of $3,000. Small claims courts are informal, there is no jury. Cases are tried by a magistrate. Court costs are low - many courts have a filing fee of only $50.
More information, including how to file a small claims complaint, is available online from the Ohio Supreme Court here (.pdf): http://www.supremecourt.ohio.gov/JCS/interpreterSvcs/forms/english/5.pdfSee question
I am 16 years old and I have had a license for 3 months. I recently got a speeding ticket. However, I did not know what the speed limit was. I thought it was 35 mph while it was only 25 mph. I was going 39 mph. I was on a road that connects with a...
Ignorance of the speed limit is no defense. If it was, everyone could walk into court, claim they didn't know what the speed limit was, and get their ticket dismissed. Your best shot with the judge may be getting your fine reduced because of your age, inexperience, and/or financial situation. Good luck.See question

At the very least, please call the Ohio Attorney General's Consumer Section and make a complaint. The Ohio AG has attorneys and investigators dedicated to holding companies responsible under the Ohio Consumer Sales Practices Act. Occasionally the Ohio AG's Office will file suit against a company on behalf of consumers and will seek to recover a consumer's damages.See question

Yes. Anyone *can* call the police and tell them anything.
Are you asking whether it would be *legal* for a person to call the police to report a crime (smoking marijuana) in progress? Again, the answer is yes. There is nothing illegal about reporting crimes - in fact, a significant percentage of police-work is based upon citizens calling in tips and reporting crimes.See question
