Q. I made police report against my husband for DV I didn’t sign a warrant
A: Assuming that is a question, the answer is yes the police can sign a warrant. If they become aware of a bank robbery they can arrest the bank robber. You made the police aware that your husband committed violence on you. They can arrest him. They do not need your permission.
Q. I own property in Cullman, al. I run Angus cattle on. A neigh.rented 8 a.c.. now there is 10 to 15 rodeo bulls there
A: Here's the primary law on it. There's a lot more than just this one, You can look at all the other Alabama laws on the subject by Googling Code of Alabama, and then choose the one that has the word "alison" in the web address. Scroll down to Article Three - Animals - and then scroll down to Section 5, and start reading at paragraph 1 under Section 5. Here's the key section you'll need. You'll need to hire a lawyer to file suit for your damages. Section 3-5-3 Liability of owner for damages done by livestock or animals running at large; judgment lien upon animal or livestock causing damage. (a) The owner of such livestock or animal being or running at large upon the premises of another or upon the public lands, roads, highways or streets in the State of Alabama shall be liable for all damages done to crops, shade or fruit trees or ornamental shrubs and flowers of any person, to be recovered before any court of competent jurisdiction; provided, that the owner of any stock or animal shall not be liable for any damages to any motor vehicle or any occupant thereof suffered, caused by or resulting from a collision with such stock or other animal, unless it be proven that such owner knowingly or wilfully put or placed such stock upon such public highway, road or street where such damages were occasioned. (b) The judgment of the court against the owner of such livestock or animal so depredating shall be a lien superior to all other liens on the livestock or animal causing the damage, except as to taxes.
Q. My boyfriend borrowed a friends car (no insurance on car) with her permission. Something broke on the front end and he
A: No, under the facts as you have given them she cannot do that. On the other hand, if it turns out he did NOT have her permission, then she can, but it won't get her anything since he will then have to be spending money on a criminal defense attorney. But beyond that, and there's not enough room on here to discuss the full ramifications of this, if he was not negligent in any way, then she can't even sue him in civil court and win. Stated another way, if its not his fault then he can't be held responsible.
