  1. Failure to properly seat belt/secure Gray into the vehicle, is undeniable, factual proof of negligent homicide by the police after he died and there simply is no way around that one. If you and I have to buckle up, so do the cops. They can NOT have it both ways on this very important LAW

  2. Hi Peter, I want to sue a city (Chula Vista) in California. Really, several cities have similar ordinances. These ordinances basically state that no RV or any vehicle that allows for sleeping can be parked on the public streets. My RV is a legally registered, licensed, and insured. Selectively stating my RV is not entitled to the same rights of use as other vehicles appears to be very unconstitutional. In addition, I live full time in my RV. I choose to live a nomadic lifestyle because that's how I choose to pursue happiness. A nomadic lifestyle is as old as humanity itself. It also protects my life from attackers. In San Diego where I live "homeless" people are being burned to death while sleeping on the street. Four people have been lite on fire in the last few weeks. My RV allows me a chance to protect my life and as we all know, that is a Constitutional right. California cities using ordinances as a route around creating actual laws gives the city the ability to seize my property without a warrant and without my right to court appointed legal council. I'm going to sue to stop this. I just need to figure out the right plan to approach this case. I'd like to sue under 42 USC 1983, since the City of Chula Vista is violating my Constitutional rights. I'd also like to sue each council member under California Civil Code 1708 since these council members created rules that are unconstitutional. Holding a seat in local government doesn't allow these individuals to freely violate my rights and as I understand CCC 1708, anyone who violates my rights are open to civil lawsuits, even city council members. Any insight would be appreciated. If you'd like to take up the case, I can use the help.

  4. Hi Peter…I am, too, in NJ. I am suing a creditor and CRA in federal court. I fully understand the criteria for a successful suit, namely, the "procedurally reasonable investigation" standard under which these cases are examined. I can prove that both parties did not adhere to this standard. Do you take this type of case? And…you do radio? I'm in the process of launching my own Internet station. :-)

  5. 28 U.S. Code § 1332 says: 

    (a) The district courts shall have original jurisdiction of all civil actions where the matter in controversy exceeds the sum or value of $75,000, exclusive of interest and costs, and is between—
    (1) citizens of different States;
    (2) citizens of a State and citizens or subjects of a foreign state, except that the district courts shall not have original jurisdiction under this subsection of an action between citizens of a State and citizens or subjects of a foreign state who are lawfully admitted for permanent residence in the United States and are domiciled in the same State;
    (3) citizens of different States and in which citizens or subjects of a foreign state are additional parties; and
    (4) a foreign state, defined in section 1603 (a) of this title, as plaintiff and citizens of a State or of different States.
    (b) Except when express provision therefor is otherwise made in a statute of the United States, where the plaintiff who files the case originally in the Federal courts is finally adjudged to be entitled to recover less than the sum or value of $75,000, computed without regard to any setoff or counterclaim to which the defendant may be adjudged to be entitled, and exclusive of interest and costs, the district court may deny costs to the plaintiff and, in addition, may impose costs on the plaintiff.

    There are rare instances where there is a particular statute controlling your cause of action that may allow you to sue in federal court below the $75,000 threshold. This video is really a basic primer. 

    Thanks for your comment!

  6. That's not entirely true as i have personally sued in federal many times there are statutes that will allow as less as 1000$ and $1500 for treble damages that you can sue for, i have sued for as less as 3000$ and as much as 100k in federal court. and  i have never lost a case nor did i hire counsel, example The FCRA TCPA and FDCPA all have set allowable values starting at up to 1000$.. However one must understand venue and jurisdiction weather its diversity jurisdiction were one would include state law with federal and subject-matter jurisdiction.

  7. Peter, thank you for this video.  You gave selflessly.  I find that admirable and thank you for your time and effort put forth to do it.

  8. Richard – Thanks for your comment. This video discusses procedural elements of when you can file a case in federal court. As I am sure you know, there are so many elements to a lawsuit. This video's only purpose is to introduce viewers to procedures concerning your right to file a case in federal court.

  9. Mr. Lamont, is this based on law? Or on procedures? So, if I am damaged under alleged color of office under the 1866 Civil Rights Act it has to start in an Article 1 Court? There is law, there are damaged parties and State Courts are run by banks, so why would I want to file in a corrupt state court? Corrupt against Pro Se litigants, because lawyers have a monopoly because of the bar association. Why do I say this? Because I can have a law degree, but without a BAR sworn oath, I cannot "practice" law. You sound like every lawyer that I have caught lying, not saying that you are, but you sound like a procedural lawyer, and procedures are not laws.

  10. Thanks for the comment! It's great to know that the videos are helpful to people.
