The North Carolina Department of Justice runs an animal welfare hotline at 1-855-290-6915. The link implies that this is a toll-free number within North Carolina only, so it may not work from where you are. If it doesn't work, the page above also mentions ways to file a complaint online or by mail. They also suggest contacting local animal control ...

There's the question whether something is lost property or abandoned property. You'd be allowed to keep abandoned property, but keeping lost property without looking for the owner is in many places considered theft. A car on your land is quite likely abandoned by the last driver (people don't usually lose cars). But the question is whether it is abandoned ...

You can appoint a guardian, or write in anything regarding the guardianship of minor children into your will. That being said, if you fail to name a guardian, and you die with no other relatives to place the children with, then the court will look to blood relatives before anyone else. It would seem obvious that you'd name a guardian, if you're going to ...

There is no statutory provision regarding maximum speed in a parking lot. The general law is that A person shall not drive a vehicle on a highway at a speed greater than is reasonable and prudent under the conditions and having regard to the actual and potential hazards then existing. Speed must be so controlled to avoid colliding with a person, ...

Moving radar gun readings are held to be admissible evidence, if used properly, and are certified to be accurate within 1 MPH. Reportedly, they are not accurate if the angle is more than 11 degrees (or something like that); in addition, there are distance limits (too far and the reading is prone to error); and it needs to be calibrated. Police training ...

The government is touchable, but not in terms of disagreeing with their method of computing value. An example is Coleman & Colman v. Glynn County, which was certified as a class action; the situation there is that the county did not correctly follow the law. There is a similar situation in Washington (which as far as I know is not going to court – yet), ...

Water charges are the responsibility of the person who has the contract with the water utility. However, if they are unpaid, they become a lien over the property irrespective of who owns it. In fact, they usually have the right to seize the property and sell it to recover their money. They can also, as you found out, refuse to provide water until they get ...

This is the kind of issue where a Legal Realist would say that the law isn't what it claims to be. In the US, the UK, and other common law countries, the common law of assault says that there can be no consent to assault. This legal concept has been used to treat as criminal sexual activity that is violent but has been consented to. But in the case of ...

Definitions An assault is any act — and not a mere omission to act — by which a person intentionally — or recklessly — causes another to apprehend immediate and unlawful violence: R v Burstow; R v Ireland [1998] 1 AC 147. Thus it is the fear which is the gist of assault. Battery is the actual infliction of unlawful force on another. But the word “...

In South Carolina the relevant law is §62-3-914, which governs unclaimed assets. First, 8 months after the PR is appointed, the court must be convinced that the party can't be found. Then there is a hearing where interested parties can object to distributing that portion of the estate. Notice of this hearing has to be published three weeks in a row, at least ...

The state of South Carolina, like all states, has a commission or administrator of elections, which handles voter registration, candidate filings, administers the vote on elections days, interfaces with the public and the press, and sells voter data. This voter data (as pointed out by Dale M) does not include the actual vote cast, but does indicate at very ...
