Legal Answers
887 Questions Answered
Q. Does malicious prosecution's statute of limitations start at dismissal of the original case?
A: Generally speaking, a cause of action exists once all of the elements have been committed. In the case of malicious prosecution, if the defendant obtains a dismissal on the merits of the claim, usually the cause of action arises on the entry of the dismissal. So the answer is yes. But remember, there are other elements to such a claim, and all these must be present at the same time. It is called malicious prosecution for a reason.
Q. Police raid my business causing major damage, cutting my cameras, taking $ from register ... Never arrested or charged
A: I suggest you contact the lawyer of your own choosing, and without any delay. If I were you, I would focus on finding a criminal defense lawyer or a civil rights lawyer with experience handling unlawful search and seizure cases. Time is exceedingly important in cases of this nature, and you should act as soon as is reasonably possible. Self help in cases like this can leave you with no remedies, because the deadlines to act can go by before you realize it. Do yourself a favor, and get legal counsel as soon as you can. A good civil rights lawyer will know exactly what steps to take to protect your rights.
Q. Defendant posted jury fee for jury trial. As plaintiff, do I need to post separately?
A: The previous lawyer's response is erroneous. He should have clarified whether he is admitted to practice in Washington, D.C., where you are apparently located. His answer based on California law may be inapplicable to your situation, and could even lead you to make decisions which are not founded in the law of your jurisdiction. That could be dangerous to your rights.

Secondly, in California, if you do not post the jury fees and the defendant does, at the time of trial you could find yourself without a jury trial because you did not demand a jury or post the fees. This is a common tactic by defense lawyers, who can come in at the day of trial and then waive the jury trial, which would leave you with a waiver of the jury trial because you did not post the jury fees timely.

You need to get legal counsel where your case is filed, i.e. in the D.C. courts if that is where your case is pending.
