I would like to file a complain against a university based in California but without involving lawyers.?

Question by Gina: I would like to file a complain against a university based in California but without involving lawyers.?
I was given false information by the representatives based in California and India. I trusted them to guide me in how to apply for Fall 2011 and for visa. Due to their mistake the I-20 arrived late due to which I was unable to take the visa date on time. I was assured that an extension letter would be provided to me that would delay my entry in the USA by a week. Once I got the visa date I was assured that there won’t be a problem but a couple of days later they informed that I would have to differ my admission to Summer 2011. They laugh whenever I try to call them and they fail to take down my complain. When I ask what is the complains procedure they ask to contact an immigration lawyer or a lawyer in CA. They hang up on me whenever I try to contact them. Even if I give a false name to speak to the person incharge they know who is on the line. Their attitude is not professional and it seems that they must pulled this stunt on someone else as well hence they have the “I CARE A DAMN” attitude. All I want is to lodge a complaint at the university with someone other than the person who the complain is against. They refuse to entertain my request and refuse to give any information. Someone please help me because I don’t want some other student to go through what I have gone through. It is insulting and just not right.

Call the BBA

Also you could contact their board members and let them know what’s going on. Many people are investing a lot of money in that college. They may help you.

3rd you could contact your local newspapers. This is a good way to get their attention and let them know you are serious.

Last… you may need a lawyer… if nothing else works.

California Personal Injury Lawyers File Lawsuit Against the City of Azusa, California, for Dangerous Conditions of Public Property

California Personal Injury Lawyers File Lawsuit Against the City of Azusa, California, for Dangerous Conditions of Public Property













The Seven Fatal Mistakes That Can Wreck Your California Personal Injury Claim


Los Angeles, CA (Vocus) March 25, 2010

The California personal injury lawyers of BISNAR | CHASE (http://www.BestAttorney.com)] have filed a lawsuit against the City of Azusa, Azusa Pacific University and the operator of a trolley on campus property. The complaint for damages for dangerous conditions of public property and motor vehicle negligence was filed after a February 2008 incident in which Julie Farris, a student at Azusa Pacific University, suffered a severe and permanent brain injury after she was struck by a trolley that was owned by the University while riding her bicycle to class. Julie, the plaintiff in this case, brought the action against the aforementioned defendants. The case is currently pending in the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles, case #KC055075.

Catastrophic Personal Injuries After Trolley Collides with Bicyclist

According to court documents, Julie Farris was riding her bicycle on the 800 Block of East Foothill Boulevard, between Citrus Avenue on the east end, and the West Campus of Azusa Pacific University campus on the west end, on February 19, 2008. A trolley owned by Azusa Pacific University and driven by a university employee, Oscar Armando Galan, struck Julie causing her to sustain catastrophic personal injuries, including a severe and permanent brain injury.

“We allege Julie suffered severe permanent injuries at the hands of both the City of Azusa and Azusa Pacific University, both of which knew the roadway on which Julie was traveling was unsafe for students.” said Brian Chase, a partner at the Los Angeles personal injury law firm, BISNAR | CHASE. “What’s equally disturbing is the fact that both the City and the University knew there had been numerous accidents on the roadway and that the majority of university students were riding against traffic, yet did nothing to warn students or the public about these dangers, and did nothing to fix the roadway.”    

Unsafe Roadways in the City of Azusa

The suit alleges that bicyclists and pedestrians traveling between the east and west campuses of Azusa Pacific University were forced onto a congested, narrow roadway owned, operated and maintained by the City of Azusa. Students frequently traveled this roadway against traffic due to a lack of bike paths, crosswalks and/or traffic signals that would allow students safe travel to and from classes and residence halls. The hazardous condition of the roadway was further exacerbated by the presence of parked cars that narrowed the usable surface of the street.

What’s more, the suit alleges the University failed to install crosswalks or traffic signals that would allow students to safely cross the busy roadway during peak times of the day when motor vehicle traffic was the most congested. In particular, because of the lack of crosswalks and traffic signals, bicyclists had no other choice but to travel head-on into oncoming traffic, versus with the flow of traffic, further increasing the roadway’s dangerous conditions.

Finally, the suit alleges the City of Azusa failed to provide its students with duty of due care by scheduling the location and times of its classes in a manner that increased traffic congestion and intensity along the roadway.

Azusa Pacific University Allegedly Failed to Improve Hazardous Road Conditions

According to the lawsuit, the defendants were aware of the dangerous conditions of the roadway due to increased serious and fatal car accidents and had been provided funding to make improvements to the roadway but instead, used these funds for other projects at the expense of public safety.

“We allege that not only did Azusa Pacific University use funds earmarked for roadway improvements for other unrelated projects, it failed to warn people about the dangers of this roadway which further demonstrates its negligent and reckless disregard for human safety,” said Chase.

The action seeks economic damages for severe personal injuries, pain and suffering and permanency, past and future hospital, medical and other healthcare expenses, and loss of past and future wages and earning capacity.

California Personal Injury Lawyers File Products Liability Injury Action Against Pepsi

California Personal Injury Lawyers File Products Liability Injury Action Against Pepsi













The Seven Fatal Mistakes
That Can Wreck Your
California Personal Injury Claim


Los Angeles, CA (Vocus) January 20, 2010

The California personal injury lawyers of BISNAR | CHASE (http://www.BestAttorney.com ) have filed a products liability injury lawsuit against Pepsico, Inc., The Pepsi Bottling Group, Inc., Metal Container Corporation and New Albertson’s, Inc. The suit alleges that a Diet Pepsi can exploded in the hand of Lynda Ryan, causing the opening tab at the top of the can to break loose and fly at a high rate of speed into Ms. Ryan’s left eye, causing catastrophic damage to her eye resulting in essentially 100 percent vision loss. The action was brought against the aforementioned defendants by the plaintiff, Lynda Ryan.

Alleged Defective Pepsi Product Causes Severe Personal Injury

According to court records, Lynda Ryan purchased a 12-pack of Diet Pepsi from Albertson’s retail outlet in Blythe, California, several days before July 9, 2008 and placed the cans of soda in an ice chest in the back of her vehicle. Over the next few days, the plaintiff consumed most of the beverages without incident and without any indication there was a problem with the cans. On July 9, 2008, Lynda removed one of the three or four remaining cans of soda and, with a normal movement that did not involve excessive shaking or any other act that would cause the carbonated beverage inside to become excessively stimulated, she began to lift the pull tab to open the can. Before this movement was completed, however, the can exploded, causing the piece of the top which usually opens downward and stays attached to the can to instead break off and fly into Lynda’s left eye, causing traumatic eye injuries and resulting in essentially 100 percent loss of vision.

“We’re alleging that Pepsico, Inc., The Pepsi Bottling Group, Inc., Metal Container Corporation and New Albertson’s, Inc. knew or should have known there were inherent vices and defects in the design and manufacturing of Pepsi’s containers,” said Brian Chase, California personal injury lawyer and partner at BISNAR | CHASE. “We allege that, in order to save money, the defendants used thinner and thinner thicknesses of the metal used to make the cans and top until it reached the point that the metal would unexpectedly break under normal pressure and usage by consumers, thereby putting profits over the safety of its customers.”    

Chase further alleges that each of the defendants in this case breached their duty of care by placing into the stream of commerce a defective and unsafe product for the use in which it was intended — a product that was dangerous to Ms. Ryan as well as consumers who would use it in a normal fashion.

Plaintiff Suffers Extreme Pain, Extensive Medical Procedures

As a result of this incident, Lynda Ryan suffered severe globe rupture, extensive corneal laceration, lens destruction, corectopia traumatic cataract, uveal prolapse, vitreous prolapse and corneoscleral rupture resulting in essentially 100 percent vision loss in her left eye. Lynda has undergone, and will continue to undergo, extensive necessary medical diagnosis and treatment procedures. What’s more, Ms. Ryan has suffered, and will continue to suffer, severe pain and mental suffering. “It’s not presently known whether the loss of Ms. Ryan’s vision will be permanent in whole or in part, and this will not be known until all necessary medical procedures have been substantially completed,” said Chase.

The action seeks economic damages for the catastrophic injuries sustained by Lynda Ryan, including ongoing medical costs and loss of income due to her injuries, and damages for her permanent pain, suffering, disfigurement and mental anguish. The lawsuit is pending in the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles, case # YC058827.

Is this news article for or against Illegal Immigration in the U.S.A?

Question by new name: Is this news article for or against Illegal Immigration in the U.S.A?
AP IMPACT: Immigrants face detentions, few rights
http://www.magicvalley.com/articles/2009/03/15/ap/us/d96ukuig0.txt
By MICHELLE ROBERTS
America’s detention system for immigrants has mushroomed in the last decade, a costly building boom that was supposed to sweep up criminals and ensure that undocumented immigrants were quickly shown the door.

Instead, an Associated Press computer analysis of every person being held on a recent Sunday night shows that most did not have a criminal record and many were not about to leave the country _ voluntarily or via deportation.

An official Immigration and Customs Enforcement database, obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, showed a U.S. detainee population of exactly 32,000 on the evening of Jan. 25.

The data show that 18,690 immigrants had no criminal conviction, not even for illegal entry or low-level crimes like trespassing. More than 400 of those with no criminal record had been incarcerated for at least a year. A dozen had been held for three years or more; one man from China had been locked up for more than five years.

Nearly 10,000 had been in custody longer than 31 days _ the average detention stay that ICE cites as evidence of its effective detention management.

Especially tough bail conditions are exacerbated by disregard or bending of the rules regarding how long immigrants can be detained.

Based on a 2001 ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court, ICE has about six months to deport or release immigrants after their case is decided. But immigration lawyers say that deadline is routinely missed. In the system snapshot provided to the AP, 950 people were in that category.

The detainee buildup began in the mid 1990s, long before the 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Since 2003, though, Congress has doubled to $ 1.7 billion the amount dedicated to imprisoning immigrants, as furor over “criminal aliens” intertwined with post-9/11 fears and anti-immigrant political rhetoric.

But the dragnet has come to include not only terrorism suspects and cop killers, but an honors student who was raised in Orlando, Fla.; a convenience store clerk who begged to go back to Canada; and a Pentecostal minister who was forcibly drugged by ICE agents after he asked to contact his wife, according to court records.

Immigration lawyers note that substantial numbers of detainees, from 177 countries in the data provided, are not illegal immigrants at all. Many of the longest-term non-criminal detainees are asylum seekers fighting to stay here because they fear being killed in their home country. Others are longtime residents who may be eligible to stay under other criteria, or whose applications for permanent residency were lost or mishandled, the lawyers say.

Still other long-term detainees include people who can’t be deported because their home country won’t accept them or people who seemingly have been forgotten in the behemoth system, where 58 percent have no lawyers or anyone else advocating on their behalf.

ICE says detention is the best way to guarantee that immigrants attend court hearings and leave the country when ordered.

“It’s ensuring compliance, and if you look at the stats, for folks who are in detention, the stats are pretty darn high,” said ICE spokeswoman Cori Bassett.

By comparison though, most criminal suspects, even sometimes those accused of heinous offenses, are entitled to bail.

For detainees, ICE agents make an initial determination whether someone is eligible for bond. Federal law says most criminals, some asylum seekers, arriving immigrants who have problems with their documentation and those recently ordered removed from the country must remain in detention.

“We’re immigrants, and it makes it seem like it’s worse than a criminal,” said Sarjina Emy, a 20-year-old former honors student who spent nearly two years in a Florida lockup because her parents’ asylum claim was denied when she was a child. “I always thought America does so much for justice. I really thought you get a fair trial. You actually go to court. (U.S. authorities) know what they are doing. Now, I figured out that it only works for criminal citizens.”

Some advocates and lawyers complain that ICE often stretches the definition of non-bondable categories to keep immigrants in custody. Immigrants can appeal adverse determinations, but while their claim works through the court system, they remain jailed.

For example, Zoubir Bouchikhi, an Algerian imam who has lived legally in the United States for 11 years, said by phone from a Houston detention center that he was placed in custody early this year and classified as “an arriving alien,” making him ineligible for bail. A homeowner with several U.S.-born children, Bouchikhi said he last entered the United States in 2006, on a legal visa.

The use of detention to ensure immigrants show up for immigration court comes at a high cost compared to alternatives like electronic ankle moni

Best answer:

Answer by Pinky
The article is not about illegal immigration, it is about HUMAN rights, illegal or legal. If you read well, not all detainees are illegals, and even if they ask to be deported, they do not deport them after all, costing $ $ $ to the US.
The article is trying to show that the goverment incarcerate a bunch of immigrants, without even bothering to prove their legal status:

“The data show that 18,690 immigrants had no criminal conviction, not even for illegal entry or low-level crimes like trespassing”

But wait a minute…if you search on YA, in the immigration section, you will see a bunch of people that are xenophobic, and will argue that:
illegals do not pay taxes, are lazy, get free education, are here ILLEGALY, are CRIMINALS…but the REAL DATA presents a different scenario. 18,690 did not had a crimal conviction (included entering illegaly), they do have jobs like any normal american=do not take welfare, so…why they took them away and incarcerated them without attorneys, bail, or even a hearing=why deny them some of the basic rights? the legal system just do not want anyone that knows a second language, that is brown or has other religion in this country…if you are different=you have to get out of the country asap, even if you are here legally.

Look at this:
“El tercero le fue incautado entre el 1992 y 1993 por las autoridades migratorias estadounidenses en el aeropuerto internacional de San Juan, Puerto Rico, para verificar su validez.”

this is an article about a puetorican that got stuck 11 years in dominican republic because the goverment (US) took his passport in the airport and in the US embassy denied all the evidence he had to prove he was a puertorican (all puertoricans are citizens)… is not the only case.
