Q. Hi my name is Tina I wanted to know how long does a court settlement for a house in Mexico take?
A: You might consult with the Mexican Consulate in Los Angeles to get information on where you can go for assistance. Most likely you will be referred to a lawyer in Mexico near where the property is located. You should be very careful if you look for a lawyer in Mexico on your own. My advice is to talk to the Mexican Consulate and get the best advice they can give you to get a start. Good luck.
A: Call your local county bar association's legal referral telephone line, explain the issue and they will refer you to someone who can step in and fight for his civil rights. Obviously, time is of the essence, so do this right away! You can always Google civil rights lawyers in your local area and start calling lawyers until you get someone to assist you. Either way, you should do either or both of these things right away!
Q. Can a company terminate you without your union rep present? never given any warning I feel my rights were violated
A: The answer to your question depends on a number of variables which you have not provided. I recommend you see an employment lawyer well versed in representing union members who have collective bargaining agreements covering the terms and conditions of employment. You should first look through either your employment manual if you were given one, or your union contract, which should be a booklet which outlines all your rights. I also suggest you talk to your local union rep about the events which lead up to your termination. You probably have a grievance procedure of which you should take advantage. Do not delay. It is critical you act as soon as you can. If you believe there was some form of discrimination, you will need to file a claim of discrimination with either the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission), which is a federal agency, or with the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH). You can find both agencies online, with a lot of good information. A reminder: do not delay! Protect your rights!
Q. What should I do if I have already complained about police discrimination and harassment to SDPD and they do nothing.
A: Unfortunately, you have not provided sufficient detail to allow me to offer you any reasonable advice. You need to prepare a chronological statement of what happened to you from the beginning, including dates and times, who, what, when, where and how, including all pertinent details, up to the current time, and provide that to any reasonable attorney with sufficient knowledge of civil rights issues, so you can get an opinion of what your options and rights are.
Q. Were civil rights violated?
A: You haven't identified the one person among you who was the probationer and was entitled to be investigated by the probation officer. Nor have you identified your status in the household where the probationer was apparently residing, nor your relationship to the 60 year old woman who was put in the car with you. The point is that there is so much information missing that it is impossible to offer any reasonable legal advice under the circumstances. If you suffered any injury, damage, loss or harm as a result of the occurrence, you should consult an attorney experienced in civil rights matters. Or, you can call the Los Angeles County Bar Association's referral service and they can refer you to an attorney with whom you can consult.
Q. If i was subpoenaed in court is my job able to hold it against me as an employee? I fear i might be fired over this
A: Your employer cannot cause you any harm or damage because you were served with subpoena to appear in court and testify. Employers are not allowed to interfere with the process of the court to compel witnesses to appear and testify. All you need to do is take a copy of the subpoena to your employer's human resources department, if there is one, or to your direct supervisor, so they can arrange time for you to comply with the subpoena. Should your employer give you a hard time about having to appear and testify, you can take that up with the judge who is presiding over the case in which you must appear. Judges do not take kindly to employers who do not provide their employees the proper time away from work to comply with lawfully issued subpoenas.
Q. If a student was cut out of a student news segment because of her sexual orientation, would that be discrimination?
A: To me this is not a matter of discrimination against the student, but the incredible lack of social conscience on the part of the school administrator. There is no right to be included in a high school news article. I’m sure administration staff is allowed to provide editorial supervision over the content which is published. The question really is to what extent the administration staff is allowed to suppress the free expression of ideas by the students themselves.
Q. Do you think the legalization of marijuana impact how student can obtain it ?
A: There are too many unknowns to allow an answer to this question. For example, how old is the student? And what grade or level of school is he or she? If you can’t provide some specifics you might get some reasonable answers.
Q. My co worker posted something in social media accussing me of vandalizing his vehicle at work, including deregatory
A: You should contact a lawyer qualified to handle defamation matters.
