What about when the Courts and / or Law Enforcement doesn't uphold what the state law says must be done?
So, I WON my girlfriend’s Lawsuit.
The judgement says we have the option of financial compensation and/or the lawful seizure of our property from a house that is rented by the perpetrator.
In short, the problem is, the local sheriff (constable) won’t do what the law says.
The law (judgement) says what I said above. But the perp has no money besides a SSI check which cannot be garnished. And the property IS in the house (the perp is even boasting and showing pictures on Facebook).
But the people at the desk at the civic court say (wrongly) that all a constable can do is be present and stand outside and cannot interfere or force entry.
Since the perp has no money and we want our stuff—and the law details on how and when the property must be seized by the Sheriff or law enforcement— what do you do when they won’t DO it?
Yeah—get an attorney. I know the drill. But why/how can an attorney have access to getting it done ???
We’ve done our homework. The law is detailed and spilled out for us. We have a right to seize our property. But the local law enforcement says no.
I won’t name the town for fear of reprisal but its one of the slob-urbs of Memphis.
The judgement is in our favor. We won. We cannot get past the idiots at the front desk and don’t even have access to the judge who ruled in our favor.
