Can I sue the psychiatric nurse practitioner that prescribed Clonazepam for my anxiety?
I was prescribed Clonazepam for a severe situational anxiety stressor. The psychiatric nurse practitioner that prescribed Clonazepam for me only told me that it was highly addictive, but that she felt comfortable prescribing it because I had no history of addiction and besides it was only going to be for a short period of time. I was told to take two 1mg tablets immediately and two more at bedtime and then one tablet 3 times per day after that. I took the first dose and after about an hour, maybe more, maybe less, I went to bed. I never took the bedtime dose. I was tired. I had had a very stressful day and I just wanted to go to bed. The next morning I got up to go to work. I was still very emotional from the previous day. I took my single tablet and went to work. I worked about 40 minutes from my house. About five miles from my job, I was pulled over by the police. They said I was driving erratic and I had almost collided several times with oncoming traffic. I was arrested. While I was in the holding cell at the police station I was desperately trying to find a way to hang myself. I had an overwhelming need to hang myself. I have never been suicidal. My life will never be the same

In terms of car insurance, is there a difference between a CWOF and a guilty DUI? Should i wait until its dismissed to apply?
I read that in mass, even a CWOF adds 5 points to your record (major violation). Im buying a used car and need to update my policy where they will most likely see my CWOF. IF i wait till it is dismissed to renew my policy will they see it then?
Yes, they will see it when your policy is up for renewal. A CWOF and a Guilty are both 5 points and insurance companies...
I was convicted of DUI in FL on a TN license and ordered to get an IID through FL but I dont own a vehicle...?
I was convicted of a DUI in the state of FL in Dec 2009, I never got a hardship license because I had been driving on a TN license and TN wouldnt give me a clearance to get a hardship in FL. And I have not owned a vehicle since my conviction so I wouldnt have a vehicle install an IID in. My question is whether or not FL is going to reinstate my license I have done all required reinstatement things for both TN and FL and just waiting for them to go through. The other part of this is that I am living in MA and wont ever be going back to FL to get a license so will I be able to apply for a new license in MA if TN and FL do clear my record?? Also was told that in FL if you dont have a vehicle in your name for 2 years after your conviction the IID requirment expires is this true?
I am a Massachusetts lawyer and do not know the answer to your very last question regarding the IID requirement in...

So my friend tells me he is going to court for not paying his fine for probation tomorrow. what is the law in mass for this?
basically what im trying to get at will the judge sentence him for jail time if he doesnt have the 900 tomorrow morning or will they set him up with a payplan?
