I filed a surcharge appeal from an auto accident and am awaiting a hearing.
In April 2012 I was involved In a small fender bender. An SUV swerved into my lane, without signaling, trying to get around a stopped vehicle turning left. Because of this I struck the rear of his vehicle at a low rate of speed. There was NO damage to the other SUV and minimal damage to my sedan (grille damage estimated at $275) we decided not to pursue. 6 months later I receive notice the other driver is going after my insurance company. I am found at fault and the other driver is paid out $21,000 for a whiplash claim (14 k medical 7 k payout) he did not claim any property damage. I have picture of both vehicles on the day of the accident. And need to gather more evidence to help my appeal. Any suggestions?
What is your basis for an appeal? Your insurance company does not have any motivation to pay more on a claim then they...
DUI " Not Guilty" sealed CORI
In a nutshell...... I was accused of a DUI by Mass state police. I went to court and was found " Not Guilty" by a judge. I later petitioned the court to seal my CORI and the judge allowed this. Do I now have to petition the state police and FBI to correct this ?
I do not believe you can seal it is against the FBI or the state police

You can't be punished in MA for a Nevada crime. That means there can be no fines or penalties or punishments for that...

Sons father was intoxicated and got arrested in front of my son, on a weekend visit and was arrested. My 2 yr old saw everything
What should I do legally? During the incident, while he was intoxicated he forced his girlfriend onto the bed aggressively and stole her phone so she couldn't call anyone and my son and his girlfriends daughter saw everything. What can I do legally? I don't trust this man around my son anymore. His girlfriend lied to me the next day and didn't tell me what happened with his father so I agreed the visit could be continued with his grandmother. And when DCF contacted me I knew something was wrong (didn't know that when I said yes). When I told both the girlfriend and grandma I was picking him up, they withheld him from me and I had to hey police intervention. I am primary custodial parent and showed cops my papers. I got him Back. But what can I do legally? Any ideas for Massachusetts laws?
You should contact a family lawyer to discuss a possible change in custody arrangements asap.
How to seal record in Massachusetts after acquittal ?
I was charged with OUI in Massachusetts 2 years ago, however The case finally went to trial and I was found "Not guilty." I will be entering the workforce shortly in the financial services industry, and usually a spotless record is required. I would like to seal my record to minimize the impact of that arraignment however I am unsure on how to proceed. I would also like to know how sealing the record may affect information that private background checking companies may report to my potential future employers.
Good for you, that is a smart thing to do and doing so before sending out job applications is a very good idea. You...
