Here's one of those "duh" questions. How does one file a lawsuit?
How does one file a complaint against a public official? Oh - and since I mean this to apply to those of us without money trees, is there a way to initiate (or respond to) any legal matter (civil or criminal), without an attorney?
If it is a complaint against a public official--there should be an Internal review office (not sure what you mean by "public"...elected, appointed, dog catcher?) You can generally file a civil suit (small claims) without a lawyer...you would need to consult your state. Now...bottom line...if you wish to sue (and win) and the guy you are going against has lawyers...you better have a lawyer. Criminal...don't know. Good luck though.
Well, the civil part is moot I think anyway - bet it's long past the statute of limitations to try and file a criminal complaint - against a police officer.
Yeeaahhh....fun times. Fell asleep in my car on a community college campus. Several times. Told "no problem" by one officer. Arrested by another. Bogus "trespassing" charge, dismissed and done as far as I can tell.
But not "done" to my satisfaction. I've already carried on about it quite a lot online already. The criminal complaint would have been 1.) false arrest, 2.) falsification of record/documents, unless that's covered under perjury. Any civil action would be to address the failure to Mirandize, discrimination, unprofessional and/or conduct unbecoming a police officer (can't access his boss because THEIR office is on the property from which I think I'm STILL banned), so it's not like I can ask them to handle it internally and keep tabs on them.
The question is rhetorical at this point. The only place I can probably address this now is in therapy!
