Legal Answers
Q. Will the prosecutor dismiss a case if police report doesn’t match the written report when going to court
A: It really depends on the nature of the discrepancy and whether it is material to the case. Do not assume that the case will be dropped.

The lack of a prior record will help you at sentencing. The judge may give you probation before judgment and/or decide not to send you to jail depending on the facts.
Q. parked car hit and run by a cab. Driver not identified only cab company. How do I get cab company to pay for damages
A: Usually, the driver of a cab is an independent contractor and the cab company will not be liable for the driver's negligence. The easiest and quickest way to fix your car is to make a collision claim with your own insurance company. You will have to pay a deductible, but will get it back if your insurance company subrogates successfully against the other driver's insurance company.

Otherwise, your only remedy is to sue the cab company and to learn the cab driver's name through discovery. You can then amend the complaint to add the driver of the cab.
Q. A contractor charged me for fencing panels but installed pickets instead--isn't "bait and switch" illegal?
A: It is a crime for an unlicensed contractor to work without a license. If he is not licensed, you can file criminal charges and ask for a refund as restitution.

If he is licensed, you can filed a complaint with the home improvement commission.

You also could sue him for damages.
