Single-Wheel Skateboard patent issues?

I really like the idea of the self-balancing single wheel skateboard.
Goes 15+MPH, durable, sturdy, and best of all simple.

I'm wanting to re-create it with my own looks/ideas, but the patent issues for this type of technology seem cutthroat. Some other company was shut down at CES for having a similar one but the concept is so simple.

I don't know much of anything about the laws for these types of things I'm just a creative/techsavy type. Could have one made within a few weeks but am I going to get shut down because I have a board that uses a microchip to scan various times per second as to how a rider is leaning in order to deliver thrust in one direction or another? Or is it more of a design issue? Can the original creator of the skateboard come out and sue other skateboard companies for making them later on, demanding money and claiming they caused "irreparable damage" by making their own renditions of the same thing?

In all honesty I wouldn't mind selling them once I get a really good one made. The apparent original company for these "Future Motion" is selling them for upwards of $1,500-$2,500 and realistically I think I could make the same thing (if not better) for around $700-$800

I need a finished resume by tonight. I want to make it for general IT support or entry level computer jobs. I have no college, no relevant experience, no references. What are some easy tricks to fill up a page with? I thought lawyers would probably be the perfect people to ask. Right now I am using a resume builder and adding the suggestions it gives me. But there is still a huge gap in the page. Should I just lie a whole bunch? Are there any specific tricks that would help me look more legit?

Thanks in advance

Failure to respond to jury stuff

So I recently found out about a bunch of letters from the county courts regarding jury service. They were sent months ago.

The final letter makes it sound like they were pretty upset that I hadn't responded, and they seemed to be demanding my presence at the threat of a fine or jailtime.

Now, this was sent months ago and I'm currently attempting to contact the office and explain the situation and that I honestly hadn't seen these until it was far too late because I had been at a different address when they were sent.

I'm a white man with no criminal record and this is happening in NY state. What do you all think the odds are that they get really shitty with me and actually try to fine me or put me in jail for x number of days, even though I could prove that I was at a different address when they had been mailed?

Based on my research, a surefire way is to ask the judge about jury nullification.

The judge will give a talk to jurors explaining their obligation to find a verdict based on the law, even if they disagree with the law. Then you bring it up and ask about the fact that a jury can in fact find differently if they disagree with the relevant law, and how that jives with the notion that you as a juror have to find according to the law, regardless of your feelings on it.

The judge will probably be like "Hm, that's very interesting." and then let you go.

Or the ADA swears out a felony obstruction warrant.

I will grant you that is rare, but it does happen. People are getting really sick of trying cases twice, so they are cracking down on this.

So I posted here awhile ago about how I punched a hole in my moms wall and the cops saw it because of something else and they arrested me and the cop told me my mom didn't have to press charges it was a necessary arrest and they found a bag of shake in my room and took it as weed. My mom and I made up and she sent a letter and called the da to have the charges dropped. I'm supposed to talk to an attorney but I had to cancel because my dad needed the car and I couldn't make it.

I have court tomorrow. I haven't heard from the da, and my lawyer said they'd call me back on my dads phone and they never did. Should I assume the charge was dropped and I just have the weed charge now? Do I still need to talk to my attorney?

this right here will prevent us from knowing the full scope of the issue and our advice will not be as good. anon image board is anon. if you are embarassed so fucking what.

>I haven't even got the chance to talk to one yet my dad made me cancel because he had work and we live in a rural area there's no can or bus or anything
you are facing at least one misdomeaner charge. do not fuck around with the dude who is representing you. if you dont care he doesnt care. did you contact friends and family looking for a ride? do not fuck around with this. this is serious.


back to op
>I punched a hole in my moms wall and the cops saw it because of something else
what is this something else? why did you punch a hole in the wall. were these done at the same time or infront of the cop?

> the cop told me my mom didn't have to press charges it was a necessary arrest
are you sure this wasnt a domestic disturbance? you said criminal mischief in the 4th thats a misdemeanor, that will give you a criminal record.
Im from NYS so i tend to go to their penal code when people dont offer any more info. the threshold is 250 dollars. you may be able to prove that you did less damage then that.

>they found a bag of shake in my room and took it as weed
what will the lab results say. if it has any trace amount of thc in it it will test as weed and the courts can prosecute you for weed. the way laws are written is there is no minimum, you are guilty of possession when you have any amount greater then 0.00. now if they choose to prosecute you on .1 of weed ill be kinda surprised.



>more info you can offer
what is your current situation. do you look like an upstanding citizen? do you have a record? are you going to school? how old are you? do you have a job?

If anyone would have decent advice the legal scholars here would. So basically I have to stick around for 3 years and some change due to legal troubles. However afterwards I was wondering how to get lost off you know start over with a new identity using loopholes in the law and legal grey areas if there any. I want to do this in a few years. Back in the day Totse had a guide about this, but its outdated.
Its alot harder now a days to get lost since thumb prints are in the DMV database and other technology.

I dont want to go off the grid or start over to do more shady illegal shit, but I want a fresh start something clean and legal even if its a fluke.

Long story short, What can you do if you're life has been threatened , say for example by a person you don't know, and the threats against your life and a person saying they're going to make you wish you were dead and to make you suffer, isn't taken seriously.

What can you do, if authority figures aren't taking your situation serious and it's affecting you. Who can you talk to about it?

I am currently going to college to become a pharmacist. I have mild scoliosis (38 degree curve in my spine), and have back pain constantly. I have an appointment at a medical marijuana clinic tomorrow to see a doctor and get my card, but I'm starting to get worried that receiving my card will make it impossible to get a job in the pharmacy field. I know that medical records are private, but the marijuana law could change in the next couple years in my home state of Michigan. Obviously if I fail an employment drug test that would be grounds for termination, but would a medical card show up on a background check and hurt my chances of getting hired?

All i can tell you is what michigan law is, not what happens there in practice as I don't live there. Under MCL 333.121 no one can disclose your participation in the medical marijuana program.

But I would be extremely wary as a pharmacist. First you're going to have to piss and there's no law to protect you from being fired after you pop hot. Also I don't know if to be a pharmacist there is a fitness application that requires you to disclose your participation (similar to what we do to be attorneys), but there is you would have to disclose it and that law likely wouldn't protect you here either.

I personally know two aspirant pharmacists who won't ever practice because of drug problems unfortunately, one for MJ and the other for opiates, so I understand it sucks.

Does /law/ have any actual lawyers or law students? I'm a history teacher who is considering a career change. And one option I'm weighing is going to law school. I'm not really sure what area I want to specialize in, though I know I don't want to do criminal law.

So is it worth it to go to law school? What's the best field to study not just for money but reliable employment? I'm just now starting to research it, since I'm far away from actually having to make a decision.

https://youtu.be/yFINmgSzK6E

>Japan is a country so safe that it makes Canada look like Somalia. Its intentional homicide rate is around 0.3 per 100,000 people, far less than America’s 4.7. It has barely any terrorism. In 2013, only 12 people were shot to death, and even that paltry number was a massive increase. In 2012, the total number of shooting deaths was three. There are many complex reasons why Japan is a nonviolent society. One is that its police force is utterly terrifying.If you’re going to have a run-in with the law, pray it isn’t in Japan. Police have the right to hold you without charge for 23 days, and they’ll spend most of that time torturing you. Suspects have tables rammed into them, their feet stomped on, and threats bellowed into their ears. Sleep deprivation is common, and choosing to remain silent is taken as admission of guilt. The only way to stop this onslaught is to sign a confession, and good luck retracting it later. Courts assume that a confession is an admission of guilt and will sentence you accordingly. People frequently go down for decades for crimes they clearly didn’t commit. It’s estimated that one-tenth of all Japanese prisoners are in jail due to false confessions, and the government has no interest in reopening their cases.

Police will arrest people they know did not commit a crime and say, look,

Alright, i don't know if this is against the rules, but i am freaking out a little and need some guidance.

Long story short, i ordered something from a darknet vendor. Left home, came back after a week, and there are two "failed to deliver" slips.

One may be from my vendor and i am currently checking that, the other one comes from my country and the city it comes from may or may not be affiliated with customs, but i have no way to tell.

Receiving one slip could have been already a red flag, but two (when i am not expecting anything else even from clearnet or friends) is sending me huge honeypot alerts.

Picking the package sounds like a no-no, especially because of the second letter. What are the possible consequences if it does end up being a trap? Should i just ignore the packages altogether? Just pick up the unknown letter? I haven't been raided or otherwise been contacted by LE in any way but i do not like this situation at all.

Anything i should do to keep my ass out of trouble? Any input at all is appreciated, really. I am very freaked out right now, so sorry if it's not my best text or has already been covered hundreds of times. Thank you.

In 2013 I was arrested for manufacturing meth and disposal of hazardous waste. I spent 4 months in jail on 100,000 bond and four months later it was dropped to 20,000. Bonded out, went to rehab, got a job and turned it around.

I have court monday for the charges. They are dropping one, and recomennding probation on the other. My question is, I relapsed and smoked weed for a few months this year. It's still in my system. Could this potentially be really bad for me monday? Can they drug test in court? It's general sessions court, and I am in SC if that helps.

Yea, it's OK to be open with some thought of what the possible good or bad could
come out of it.

Here's a story, a friend/associate said he was joining the military, ready to go and become productive when he was facing possible a long time in jail. The judge said OK, good luck to you and you are making a good decision, case closed. No probation, jail time

A month or whatever layer he was back in jail again. The same judge, same type of charges, Judge was red in the face, YOU, No leniency was given.

Thanks for the words of advice. I am having trouble with probation now. They had to trasnfer it to the current town I live in from the city it happened in and I reported when they told me and I wasn't in the system. Contacted the right people and was told to come monday. Same day another agent called and said that I didn't report the day I actually did. Said they'd issue a warrant if I didn't come Monday.

SHe called back like 5 minutes later and was like I spoke to the others and they said they were in contact with you just come Monday.

I was like what the fuck.. first a paperwork error then a communication error. This is going to be a fun 3 years.

Ok...in like october or november somebody VERY close to me got raided by some DEA agents.

They found 150 grams of MDMA and $6000 cash.

However, they didn't get arrested. Instead, a few weeks later, they got letters of what was found during the search. The letter says nothing about MDMA and only claims $5000 cash was found.

Now, it gets stranger. The return address on the envelope was not from a dea office (i don't even think theres any around here) but a random address. Going to it, theres a big mural of people of all different races and colors painted on it, no sign on the building, and a camera facing toward the door along with a card reader to get in.

Now they've speculated this entire time that these aren't DEA agents but some thugs who work for the DEA or something, that stole all of their drugs and some cash and only reported $5000 of "What they believe to be drug money" back to the feds.

And now months later their mail starts getting opened and seized. They (the people taking the mail) recently seized some stuff that was legal (it was just paper) and the people who live in the house believe that its being tested for LSD or something. It isn't, it was just a letter.

So whats gonna happen to these kids? I am in no way shape or form connected to their former business
