bemnjefe : I have seen some of these listings that say, "no contract required, just insert your SIM card." HUH?
What is a SIM card? I have owned several phones, I have never seen or heard of a SIM card until today.
I am sure that some of these listings look good, new phones/low prices, but there HAS to be a catch.
Please help. I need to buy a phone but I refuse to go to Verizon. Worst customer service in the world, I swear. Useless and incompetent. They sold me a Kin and the ringer volume is way too low, and the keypad disappears after a call goes through. I went to a Verizon store and the idiot customer service person actually dialed the 1-800 customer service number, handed me the phone, and walked away.

mengya1w8g8 : The 5th Amendment Right to 'remain silent' if accused officially of crime is well known and also a basis of all modern British/ American type criminal law.....
Is it now true in the US (perhaps because of some recent Supreme Court ruling) that defendants have to be....' required and forced to speak' say...they choose to exercise their right to remain silent....instead of just....being silent (which of course is the same thing)?
I mean if you have a right to remain 'silent' and not respond or answer the charges....doesn't being forced to speak (even to say that you plead not guilty and exercise the right)...take away that right?
I ask because the judge in the 'Zimmerman Trial' ....on TV...forced the accused and/or his attorney to...speak...and not just remain silent after they said Defendant would not testify.

kimmurphyo : The right to remain silent is different from the 5th Amendment privilege against self incrimination.

In Miranda v. Arizona the court said that anyone who is subject to custodial interrogation must be told of certain rights, including the right to remain silent. This right only applies when there's custody + interrogation (or it's functional equivalent).

The 5th Amendment privilege against self incrimination applies when a person is called to testify at a trial, deposition, or hearing. The right only applies to "testimonial" evidence (not physical evidence), and only if the government has not given you immunity.

Anyngeano : I feel like he should have to testify because he is in front of a grand jury. ""No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury."

hiegululnenny : I have a default judgment against two homeowners. The incident I sued for occurred in their household. They never responded to the lawsuit, which is why I received a default judgment.

Is it possible to now serve their insurance company with the default judgment to satisfy the judgment? I have been told this by two attorneys, but I am not sure if this is legally possible.
The reason I am asking this is because the two attorneys said it is possible. But other attorneys have made no mention of it. I have spoken to many attorneys.

wpthwddc : "I have been told this by two attorneys, but I am not sure if this is legally possible." Pretty silly to ask strangers that have no idea where you live and can not give legal advice when tow lawyers already answered your question.

15gvhc922 : Get an attorney to help you in the process. Each state has it's own laws and you need someone to work on this for you.

Plattegat : If the homeowner did not involve the insurance company, you can't go after the insurance company.
Your relationship is with the homeowner. You have no relationship with the insurance company.
