Legal Answers
Q. My friend says she was sexually assaulted in a residential mental ward can j get her out of there
A: If she is there voluntarily, she can check herself out, although that seems unlikely. If she has been committed, you cannot unilaterally take her away. You can call the police and/or make a complaint to the licensing board. dhcs.ca.gov/provgovpart/Pages/MH-Licensing.aspx
Q. Is it legal/humane to shoot your dog as a way of “putting it down”?
A: This could be illegal for a number of reasons. Animal cruelty, illegal discharge of a weapon, etc. Depending on circumstances, it might be legal. It really depends on the facts of exactly what happened. Make a complaint to the Sheriffs Dept. or police and find out.
Q. Is my now ex wife liable for Lawsuit involving our dog injuring someone while we were married?
A: If it's a community debt, then she should bear her share of it. It's unclear whether your wife was a party to the litigation, and/or was aware of the settlement conference. It's also unclear whether your wife has the funds to actually contribute the $30k which might be her share. Finally, it's unclear whether your marital separation documents allocate debts/liability arising out of the ownership of the dog to you, and whether you can go back to Family Law court to attempt to recoup the $30k, or whether you must initiate an entirely new lawsuit.
