In Riverside County, New Eviction Actions Remain Essentially On Hold, While Older Actions Have Resumed

These new rules have effectively halted the filing of most new eviction lawsuits and have relaxed the ordinarily quick pace of proceedings in previously filed, older lawsuits. Nothing is guaranteed, however.
The COVID-19 situation continues to evolve.  On March 4, 2020, Governor Gavin Newsom declared a state of emergency in California over the COVID-19 public health pandemic.  Later t… http://rclawlibrary.org/community/blog/2020/07/riverside-county-new-eviction-actions-remain-essentially-hold-while-older-actions-have-resumed/

“Filing Trap” for Non-Filers Who Use the Economic Impact Payment Registration Tool

Taxpayers who use the Economic Impact Payment registration tool may fall into a trap where once the taxpayer uses the portal to request the EIP payment, he or she is no longer able to e-file a 2019 return. By Peter Y. Lin-Tsai, Esq.

Taffy Pull

If you get enough people mad at you, courts/judges will do ANYTHING to get you - even if it means making up crazy interpretations of the law just to make your life miserable.
In today's news is the story of a guy whom the Feds really wanted to nail to the proverbial wall.  See, once upon a time Dennis Mahon of the White Aryan Resistance of Arizona plan… http://rclawlibrary.org/community/blog/2016/01/taffy-pull/

This Day in History- The Sedition Act of 1918

This Day in History- The Federal Reserve Act

This act created the Federal Reserve with twelve private regional banks, and gave the system the ability to issue Federal Reserve notes. The responsibilities of the Federal Reserve have since been expanded to dramatically impact American economics.
  Woodrow Wilson must have had the phrase “money makes the world go around” in mind when he signed the Federal Reserve Act on December 23rd, 1913. This act created the Fede… http://rclawlibrary.org/community/blog/2014/12/day-history-federal-reserve-act/

You Really (really) Need to Read This

Few things are more annoying than having to read 4 point type fine print in a contract knowing full well that if you don't read the fine print, you're gonna get stung somewhere down the line. You just know it!
More and more, these days, is the instance where someone will come into the library asking for a book that talks about how to get out of a contract for the sale of a car or a boat… http://rclawlibrary.org/community/blog/2014/09/read-it/

Freedom only goes so far

People need to respect other people's rights including the right to be left alone. You're rights may not (or should not) infringe upon another's right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Rarely do things in the legal world surprise me, anymore.  Disbelief, maybe, but not surprise.  Take, for instance the case of U.S. v. Osinger.  Seems Mr. Osinger and the love of … http://rclawlibrary.org/community/blog/2014/06/freedom-only-goes-so-far/
