A subpoena is a kind of court order. Specifically it is an order to a particular person to appear and testify at a particular time and place. In many but not all cases, the order also requires that person to bring specified records or documents along. That is known as a subpoena duces tecum. In some cases this is used to, order the production of documents ...

It is not a crime or a tort to accidentally sign in to an email provider with an incorrect email address, even if that address is actually held by some other person. Not attempting to enter a password or repeat the attempt makes it clear there was no intent to obtain unauthorized access, and the emails make that even more clear.

But I don't see how it is connected, because there is no domestic violence, no child custody One does not need to be violent to violate an agreement. There was an agreement to resolve the situation with the house. You ex did not honour it. You can ask the court to convince him to honour it through a motion for enforcement. It's that simple.

I'm assuming you are talking about "warrants in debt" and not arrest warrants. A warrant in debt is that the creditor has filed with a court for the repayment of a debt. The court will then issue a judgement (in default if you do not appear) either for the creditor or the debtor. After that, the creditor can then (if they win) seek things such as garnishment ...

A subpoena is a kind of court order, specifically one requiring the recipient to provide information to the court. A subpoena can be an appropriate order for a company to provide information to the court about one of its users. For example, Watchtower Bible and Tract Society filed a subpoena to compel Reddit to turn over information related to one of its ...

united-states If there is more than 1 email account annoying you online, do you need to obtain separate court orders to identify each one, or is one order sufficient? A judge could order an email provider to unmask multiple accounts with one court order. Judges are not really restricted in the number of things they can do per order, as long as it's within ...

Are laws to be followed only to the extent practical and doable? This is not true as a general rule. But there are particular circumstances where this is the case, as illustrated by these examples: The general duty of care to others in tort law is, in part, as applied to a particular act of alleged wrongdoing, evaluated in terms of the risk of harm if a ...

There are two kinds of competent authorities: courts, and government enforcement agencies (tax offices, building inspectors, etc.). A court might order X to do something if Y petitions, but X is notified of the proceeding to which they are a party, and X will (should) object to the petition on the grounds that the petitioned relief is impossible or imposes ...

One option is contempt proceedings, which may be initiated in this case of the Orange County CA sheriff. This can result in imprisonment, unless it is a federal matter and the President of the US pardons the sheriff. It would depend on the state's laws, but for example Montana's law, MCA 45-7-309 includes "purposely disobeying or refusing any lawful process ...

So, is it possible, when petitioning for such a court order, that the citizen ask the judge to order the agency to behave in a lawful way and abolish their illegal "regulation" in addition to granting the citizen's one-time request? While it is possible to obtain injunctive relief changing a procedure arising from a one time transaction, it isn't easy ...

doesn't the first paragraph apply and it can be enforced it ASAP? The first excerpt applies, but that does not mean that judgment is enforceable immediately. Section 56.1(2.1) reflects the possibility that "the default is set aside by the tribunal". This is likely to occur if the counterparty proves that a reasonable cause prevented him from ...

It depends on so many things. That's why only a lawyer familiar with your case and the local rules can answer properly. However, it is not unusual that parents cooperate to make small changes out of court, and when that happens it's good to put those agreements in writing in case there is any dispute later.

A federal court order may be lawfully ignored if it has not be served (i.e. delivered in the manner set forth in court rules) properly upon the person to whom it is directed, but it is exceedingly risky to do so if you have actual knowledge of the order, because "substituted service", "constructive notice" and similar doctrines can cause a court order to be ...

Just to hit the specific point in the question beyond what @DaleM mentioned, judges have very broad discretion to continue hearings and extend deadlines that have not already expired upon the request of a party, except in a very narrow class of cases that provide otherwise. The standard for doing so in the jurisdictions where I have practiced is "good ...

A subpoena is usually issued in the context of a court case, although, in many states, particularly those that do not routinely use grand juries in all felony cases, prosecuting attorneys and certain state regulatory agencies also have subpoena power (as does Congress, at the federal level). Unlike a court order, which must be approved by a judge, a subpoena ...

Are there any circumstances under which a federal court order may be lawfully ignored? A sort of mini-appeal process, if you will? Yes. It does require the non-compliant to perform some proceedings, as your last sentence correctly conjectures. Depending on the context and details of proceedings, the non-compliant party would need to pursue one or more of ...

A "Motion To Enforce" is one of the tools litigants have when the other party has failed to abide by an agreement or court order. In your case, you have a signed agreement, and your ex-husband is -- according to you -- violating that agreement. What you are asking the Court to do is agree that your ex-husband has failed to uphold his side of that agreement. ...

One alternative would be to identify a U.S. lawyer who practices in the U.S. and hire that lawyer to handle things. The lawyer will probably need a retainer up front to cover the lawyer's fees, which may be as little as fifteen hundred to three thousands dollars depending upon the complexity of the situation. It is rarely necessary for you to be present in ...

when you see these videos on YouTube and various other sites of people arguing with debt collectors about warrants, one of the most common things they say is "you need a wet ink signature for the warrant to be legal" Is that actually true? No. It is an internet myth, which seems to be spread by people (e.g. 'Freemen on the Land') who believe ...

Yes. You would include a request for injunctive relief in your complaint, specifying your demand that the court order the agency to comply with the order going forward.
