If a person receives “legal mail” from an inmate at a fed. prison and is addressed as J.Doe, Esq, is it fraud?

Question by missg: If a person receives “legal mail” from an inmate at a fed. prison and is addressed as J.Doe, Esq, is it fraud?
J. Doe is not a lawyer and has no legal background and may be trying to file legal documents.

Best answer:

Answer by LovesTheConstitution
Addressing errors may not be fraud. Look at the content of the letter. Is the inmate attempting to obtain goods or services by deception?

If a person files a lawsuit as “in pro per” when they go to court can a lawyer then be present?

by LordKhan

Question by DAWN L: If a person files a lawsuit as “in pro per” when they go to court can a lawyer then be present?
My friend filed court papers to change child custody. He filed “in pro per”. Now he’s going to court and wants to take a lawyer with him. Is that legal? Or since he filed in pro per he has to continue to represent himself?

Best answer:

Answer by coryshawn
THe lawyer would have to file a notice of appearance on his/her behalf and they would be counsel of record for atleast that appearance, although he/she could go back as “in Pro Per” following that hearing. Does that make sense?

Q&A: Why would the person who caught Barry Bonds 756th homerun ball owe taxes even if he doesn’t sell the ball?

by jaydedman

Question by trer: Why would the person who caught Barry Bonds 756th homerun ball owe taxes even if he doesn’t sell the ball?;_ylt=ArsLkjGQCTqQvRFFv7iROjg5nYcB?slug=ap-bonds-ball&prov=ap&type=lgns

“Even if he does not sell the ball, Murphy would still owe the taxes based on a reasonable estimate of its value, according to John Barrie, a tax lawyer with Bryan Cave LLP in New York. Capital gains taxes also could be levied in the future as the ball gains value, he said.”

I don’t understand why he would have to owe taxes on the “reasonable estimate” of the value of the ball if he never sells it? I understand paying taxes AFTER he sells it.

Best answer:

Answer by bostonianinmo
That’s Mr Barrie’s opinion. I do not agree with it, and the IRS has refused to comment publicly on the issue.

Several folks have already commented on the issue. Do a search and you’ll find a number of comments that disagree with most of what Mr Barrie says. IMHO, Mr Barrie is pushing for some free publicity and he’s certainly getting that.

Determining the ball’s value is fraught with multiple minefields. When it left the pitcher’s hand it was worth about $ 8.00 or so, the price of a MLB ball. Can anyone accurately predict a value based upon it being hit by a possbily juiced-up ballpayer? Will further home runs by Mr Bonds affect the value? How about if his records are stripped? The best predictor of its value will be what it sells for, should Mr Murphy decide to sell it. At that point, the IRS will be unquestionably entitled to its due. Given the fact that Mr Bonds’ future is not assured, Mr Murphy’s best bet would be to unload it as quickly as possible and pay any tax based upon the sales price.

For people from the domnican republic or lived there is it that bad based on what this person has said?

Question by proudtobe latino: For people from the domnican republic or lived there is it that bad based on what this person has said?
Dear Slicksport, I visited the DR in the early 90s with a national and lived with his family in two different places. The DR is like a 3rd world country in most areas. Your best bet would be to go with a government type job to an established medical center. I spent time in the capitol city. The people did not have electricity except when the government decided to turn it on for a few hours per day. Most water is obtained through wells. Children had to walk for miles to attend grade schools. The government section of the city had electricity most of the time(but not always.) the people in that small section of the city were a little better off than the rest. His relatives in that area had a more comfortable home than the others we stayed in. As a white person, I went to areas where they did not usually see white people and they were very shocked. The carker a person is the more they are prejudiced against. My friend and his siblings ranged from light-like Italian to light-skinned black. He had a very dark black friend who talked about being very prejudiced against by the nationals. The government is socialistic from what I understood. the river that went through the city, the main water supply, was charcoal gray.
In the rural area where we stayed the people were open and friendly. No running water or electricity. The small town we came through is some kind of tourist city. The tourist resort area is nice and expensive. The cost of living is much, much less than ours if you live like the people. Learn Spanish! Get your shots! There are not a lot of medical facilities there. Their salaries are low and most people live in poverty, unless they have an education-like lawyers and government workers. When I was there, there were soldiers carrying weapons openly on the streets-if you are prepared for that. Because of the poverty, there is a lot of medical problems and crime. My friend bribed a customs guy at the airport to get a 32″ screen tv in for his mother. Voodoo is practiced there-if you are ready for that. Are you aware of some of the medical situations that you would be seeing? I got a wierd rash there and was able to buy some sauve at a local drug store with the help of my friends. Do not drink the water or use any ice! Catch the rain like they do! I got really sick from using ice in one pop. I almost passed out and could barely walk for two days. Thank God my friends mother is a naturalist healer! She gave me a tea made from grapefruit leaves with a large amount of salt in it. It cleared me up by the 2nd day. The country is lush. The people like baseball, as a few of the countrymen have broken out of poverty by going pro.
A sad story. I was visiting other relative’s rural home, I saw about a 3 year old girl sitting in the nieghbors yard. I glanced at her at different points of the day, from going in and out of the house and their yard. And the outhouse was in between the two houses. After a 3 hour visit, I commented that the little girl was very quiet and sure had not moved around a lot. She had two older brothers who would go in and out of their house and yard. I had seen her in a few different spots during the day. But I had not seen anyone interact with her for more than a few minutes at a time. They all told me that she had been born with a spinal condition and would never walk. The family did not have the money to take her to a medical Dr. I met her and her family. She liked me a lot. She doesn’t talk. She sits in a woven chair that has a whole in the middle for when she goes to the bathroom. It was deplorable. I almost threw up at the idea of her existence. But instead, I spent a few minutes with everyone interacting with her. Something I always wonder about is if she is alive and what her quality of life is, if it ever improved? What would be done with a girl like that after her mother died? I can only imagine what possible abuse might occur.
I visited the local rural school and spoke with two of the classes. There were no maps and only a few things on the walls. They did have some books and there were doors to lock to keep thieves out. Most people still do not get to go to school. I knew and have seen people live in worse conditions, but it is still heart-wrenching to see it. The zoo is interesting, on open model, to see.
That is my overview. I hope that I gave you some insight and some info to consider. I would really check out the situation that you are going to and have a job before you go there. I enjoy latin people and their cultures. It’s best to be prepared before you go. Medical people are desperately needed and you could make an impact if that’s what you want. If you want to breeze by, pick somewhere else. Most of the 3rd world countries I have been in, there is not running water or electricity even at the hospitals. The emergency rooms usually have plastic over them or are just open to the outdoors, where other people are. Mexico just had plastic. Liberia, Africa the door was open. Russia, they had facilities but no equipment or medicine to give out in their communist way. Most of these countries still wash out plastic tubing used to run blood and medicines-just for an idea.
I do not want to discourage you in any way, just reporting honestly. I am wondering why you would want to go there? Look it up on the web.

Answer by Maritza S
Things have changed there recently. If it wasn’t for drugs plaguing the country, it would be paradise. If the current president doesn’t take all the money before his term is up, and the next one continues what he started, it will have less poverty than ever before. Remember, there is poverty everywhere in the world. It is hard to control. When I was a little girl, the poor had no clothes or shoes to wear, now it’s rare to see one naked. Maybe up in the mountains. Just don’t help out the drug dealers by being an user when you go there so that we can all enjoy a real paradise!

Can a person with a murder conviction become a lawyer?

Question by keishauna_kei_kei: Can a person with a murder conviction become a lawyer?
I just watched a program called “Snapped” on the Oxygen channel. A woman had killed her b/f and got 5 years w/ 15 years probation with a plea of voluntary manslaughter. The update on the case stated that she will be released in 2010, apply for her probabtion to be removed then finish law school and pursue a career as a criminal defense attorney.

WHAT??? Is this correct??? I have heard of “jailhouse lawyers” but can they be that on the outside? And if so, then how about those with misdemeanors? Looks as if people come down harder on those with small infractions than felons (murderers, rapists, and child molesters).

Best answer:

Answer by Angels_Six
There is nothing saying that a qualified candidate cannot sit for the bar exam and become qualified as an attorney. Whether or not they practice is quite another thing.
