Legal Answers
Q. How do I request the appellate judge to give a written opinion on dismissal of a request for reconsideration?
A: On the motion for reconsideration, they can simply deny the motion or grant the motion. Usually, they deny the motion without a written opinion.
Q. A woman stealed a photo of me and my exgirlfriend and she uses it as a profile photo in social media. I’m married?
A: If she has put you in a false light by using this photo, then you may have a claim against her. You should first ask her to remove the photo immediately (in writing) though as an alternative to filing a lawsuit.
