Hi /law/. I don't want to go into too many details---basically, I am trying to file a grievance about a job I am going to be terminated from. I am talking with some union guys, and one of them said that I do not have a viable grievance because of this line from Taylor Law:

>A reduction of hours to correspond with management's reduction of services it provides is a non-mandatory subject of negotiations

Basically, I am being terminated because I asked for a reduction of hours (which has been something I done MANY times at this job and is past practice there). The union guy that is supposed to be helping me sent me this in an email, putting "non-mandatory" in bold and told me that this is why I won't be able to file a viable grievance.

But is he wrong? What about the part of that quote that says "to correspond with management's reduction of services"? Management is not reducing any services. They are still offering the same services to people via someone else taking the hours I asked to reduce. Or am I interpreting this wrong, since I am a law noob? There has not been a "reduction in services" as far as I know, so is the guy wrong?

Hey /L A W/. First time posting here. I am in deep trouble and need advices.

I am currently in U.S. Navy A school. It fucking sucks and very stressful. I was bored out of my fucking mind. There is nothing to do here beside sleeping and browsing internet. I wanted to do some drugs to have some fun while staying here.

Here is my daily schedule.
>Wake up at 0400 5 days a week.
>Leave barrack at 0430 to eat shitty breakfast.
>Go to school at 0500.
>Work and study till 1700.
>Go back to barrack at 1700.
>3.5 hours of free time. No alcohol allowed
>Can't go sleep because of insomnia

So, I ended up ordering some clonazolam from some research chemical vendor to help with insomnia.

Go to the base's law office and tell them you need legal help. If you can't figure that much out, go to your chaplain and say "HELP I NEED HELP WHERE DO I GO HELP", but do NOT under any circumstances admit to doing ANYTHING. As far as anyone is concerned, what happened was "A package came for me in the mail. I do not know what it was or what was in it. I am now under investigation by NCIS."


Also, 99% of the shit that's going down is just to scare you. I once got in trouble (not drug related) and had OSI flip my room upside down, they confiscated a bottle of robitussin gels and some tylenol, and then tried to tell me "you gathered the materials to make ecstasy. who for/why are you making drugs" and all that other "it will be easier on you if you just tell us..." bullshit that cops say.

Ordered some milligram scales to the UK form Hong Kong. It's been 10 days since I ordered them and still nothing, and while they could easily still come, I just have a strong gut feeling they won't because pretty much everything I order from Hong Kong usually comes very quickly (like 4-5 working days).

Would customs be allowed to confiscate these? They are not illegal but obviously may be considered suspect. If customs confiscate them, do they have to (or are they likely to) send me a love letter?

Should I be concerned about this? I wouldn't have fucked bought them if I'd known they were coming from abroad but the fucking vendor failed to mention this in the listing.

I've been doing a bunch of searching and I've found a lot of info for parents about what to do if naming a child and giving them a hyphenated last name containing the fathers last name and mothers maiden name, but that's not what I'm after.
If you (the child) wish to go by both names either by legally changing it or just referring to yourself by it which would you say first? My legal name would be first name then fathers last name which is how I sign everything, what it says on all paperwork etc. I've recently wanted to start using both my real last name (fathers last name) and my mothers maiden name (informally) and was curious as to whether it is more customary to go first name fathers last name mothers maiden name, or first name mothers maiden name fathers last name.
I don't intend to legally change my name however in my town my mothers family is massive and goes back a long way. I've met people before and introduced myself with first and last name and then a month later been at a family gathering and seen the same person and they we're all ohh wow I didn't know u were related to them. It's just more of a personal thing ( I'm also the only grandchild without my mothers side of the families last name) which sorta bugs me.
Again I'm not really talking about legally changing it, simply using both informally and still using my real last name for legal purposes and signatures but was curious what order the people who do legally change to both last names put them in.

Pic not related to the post... But on this board drugs are always related lol

To say having two last names is a "shit-image" of oneself is profoundly ignorant.

>> If so, the bank would
need to try to verify the check to begin with.

You don't know what you are talking about. When a customer deposits a cheque here the bank instantly credits their account with the money. Then the bank requests the money from the financial institution on the cheque. If either the institution or the cheque is fake or the account is real but has no money in it then shit hits the fan. The bank will hold the depositor responsible for the full amount. The bank does not transform into CIS: Wall Street and go off to track down whoever wrote the cheque.

>Depending on the circumstances and your State's laws, you may be held responsible for the entire amount of the fraudulent check that you cash at the bank or deposit into your account. If your bank credited your account, it can later reverse the funds if the check is found to be fraudulent.
>This could be a Check Overpayment/Money Order Scam. It's an example of why you should never accept a check from someone you don't know.
>As the payee, it's up to you to pursue the maker of the check.

>>Banks have insurance, if things go wrong.

Hello. I'm 19 and with a physical disability. I'm currently living by myself and scrapping by. Problem is with all the social programs I'm on outside of ssi are rather piss poor with nuances and holes for my medical assistance and housing support. My parents although not my agents as an adult are often used as refrences.
They've been psychology abusive to me and physically harmful. What legal power do I have to keep them away from me? They can wear a good mask when other people are around or I imagine that they could say I'm psychology dysfunctional or incompetent which is easy to peg someone with a disability.

so yesterday my internet got blocked. after spending a LOT of time on the phone with the provider here is what i know:
  1. it was shut off due to a copyright claim
  2. it was all porn torrents
  3. according to this guy, porn companies actually do go after restitution

they say i should have been contacted/alerted before it got to this point but i never was. not that i think this will save my ass.
i don't get my porn from torrents. this is definitely my room mate. they read me the titles and it's nothing i've heard it.

if they come after me, what are my options? i'm sure my phone number is just a subpoena away for the copyright holder. i live in florida.
how actually likely is it they will come after me? i've heard before that movie studios send you a STOP. OR ELSE. letter and usually stop there, but i havn't heard how the porn industry deals with this. will they call me? will they go for restitution? will this get pinned on me? (the house is mine and the internet is in my name)

and of course i've sent a text to my room mate to stop torrenting. since i'm at work when it got turned back on i remoted to my home computer and changed the SSID so his seeds couldnt' start automatically

Ignore them. Why must I give this advice a million times a day? Debt collectors and corporations have no actual legal weight, and the repo man can only take your car because the bank still has claim to the title.

Until they find someone with legal weight to badger into backing them up, they're just bullying, hoping you buy their line that paying is the easiest thing to do, when the easiest thing to do is nothing. Don't pay shit, don't answer shit, don't do shit until they have you in front of the judge/jury making the deciding.

And then you tell them what you told us, everyone is pissed that they missed out of real work for this bullshit, and you probably don't even have to pay court fees, not that it usually comes to that anyway. Do not pay. They cannot make you pay. That's why the bullied you ISP into cutting off your internet rather than actually doing anything. Courts suck up more money than they will ever get back, and unless you live in the state the producer is based out of, the cost of trans-national litigation would outweigh anything they could get out of you by many, many digits.

lets say you commit a crime on a victim, then you disappear overseas for a year. Then when you return the victim isnt in that country anymore, and the isnt trial by absentia in this country. so they cant trial me until i return, and once i return they won't have a victim to testify in court. what happens when I return? Do they just save their confession on paper and use it later in court?

Reality, they could try a person without a so-called victim to testify in the US.
If there are statements, that is evidence. And also evidence is evidence.

Also to consider, if you had, had a court date set to proceed, and left the country of origin it may be considered a crime in it's-self.

In short, there generally needs no so-called victim to appear in the courtroom, let alone testify, as well a 'defendant' has no obligation to testify.

The police have nothing to do with the confrontation clause. Crawford is good law still and as someone who has actually worked as an assistant district attorney, I can say from personal knowledge there's not much wiggle room.

My friend was arrested at a music festival (UK) for having significant amounts of class A drugs on him and handing out lines of MDMA and ketamine. He has (had...? :( ) a well-paying job and a second home he rents out, so I'm pretty sure he wasn't dealing (he has no need to). However with the amount that was probably found on him they probably thought that's what it was (he does a lot of drugs).

I noticed several days after the festival ended his Facebook account had been deactivated. Would Facebook deactivate his account pending investigation or did he deactivate it himself after presumably being released on bail as a desperate attempt to hide it from the police?

I would try calling him but I assume police have his phone. Are the police likely to tap all of his phone calls as well as reading the texts? I've heard it's a bureaucratic and expensive process for the justice system to obtain recordings of all his calls, and I'm wondering if they'd do this over suspected small time drug dealing.

On a side note that should go without saying, he is a beautiful person who makes everybody feel appreciated and welcomed. I really fucking despise the officers who decided to take him away and probably ruin his life (hurrdurr just following orders), and I'm fed up with this stupid and pointless war on drugs that does nothing but cause misery for peaceful people. /rant

I'd wage that he closed the page himself. All the coverage I've seen of FB on the issue is that they are very reluctant to close user accounts. Remember the movie, when Zuckerberg is bitching out Eduardo for jeopardizing the servers after he froze their accounts? If just one person leaves it (in principle) damages the entire user community. There was controversy about 4 years ago when it was revealed that FB wasn't actually deleting content nor accounts when people tried to do those things - FB was just removing it from public view. So as best I can tell there's almost no way a couple of cops on the wrong side of the ocean could get FB to nuke the page of someone who hasn't even been in front of a judge yet.
I would expect just the opposite; the cops will want his page to stay up so they can dig through it for dirt to enhance their case, lay new charges or just put more pressure on him to do what they want him to. If that's the case, and I believe it is, then he took the page down himself.

I agree, although I think it is a terrible idea to use the Facebook Movie as a reference for anything actual.

Disaster strikes, text is everything.
As far a phone communications is
more difficult.

In the US the Supreme Court ruled that police
could not detain people, and simply read text
Facebook, surely they could help build a case.
Hence, it disappeared. Or he deleted the account

Reading text would be trivial if law allows it.
text is disaster. It leaves, or can, leave anything.
Tapping voice is difficult, compared to text messages.

Text messages is the fail. All the info is there. Right or wrong. A judge may approve a warrant to look into, basically everything. Simply everything. Or anything.

Text is instant.
If a cop(s) read 10(s) of texts in minutes, fail.
