Legal Answers
Q. Do I have reason to Appeal a Parking Citation if is was placed in my car ( entered the vehicle ) without my permission
A: No. There was no trespass, and you were not harmed in any way.
Q. Can you appeal the 9th Circuit court of appeals decision to the higher court?
A: Yes, the US Supreme Court. But an appeal to that Court is not as of right. You first have to petition the US Supreme Court to review your case--only if that petition is granted can you proceed with that appeal. That petition has strict rules and procedures, mostly described in the Supreme Court's website under Rules. The filing fee, in most cases, is $300.
Q. If you have already agreed to a settlement agreement on a NYS DHR case, How do you appeal? What is the process?
A: First, I am not a New York attorney. But if you have already agreed to a settlement, my impression is that you have also agreed to waive your appeal rights. However, I am not privy to the settlement documentations-- perhaps the appeal rights were not addressed. The fact that your attorney was on vacation during the settlement negotiations doesn't play a role in the ultimate result, I would think.
