Massachusetts civil and criminal law is divided into civil and special law, and both have similar protections.
Civil law protects people from being harassed, from being forced to testify, and from being injured or killed by their neighbors, and special laws protect those with a disability or who are the victims of a violent crime.
The Massachusetts Civil Law is divided in three sections, each with different legal definitions and protections:Civil LawSection 1 – Civil Proceedings:Civil suits and claims.
A person has the right to be tried by a judge or jury, and is entitled to a jury trial.
However, the judge may not issue an injunction against the defendant unless he finds that the defendant is acting unlawfully, or the defendant has committed a crime.
In such cases, the defendant must prove by a preponderance of the evidence that the plaintiff is the victim of a crime, and the judge must issue a decree requiring the defendant to pay a fine of not less than $100 and not more than $250.
If a person has been arrested and convicted of a felony, the law requires the defendant not to have contact with the person arrested.
This includes having contact with a police officer, an emergency services worker, or a probation officer.
If the person has not been convicted of the felony, contact must be limited to the person’s immediate family and friends.
A person has no rights if the arrest is for an offense against the person, and a judge may order the defendant released if he has been convicted.
If a person is convicted of an offense involving a drug, the court must order the person released on probation for three years.
A law enforcement officer has no right to use force or threaten, or interfere with, the person or property of a person.
A judge may impose conditions on a person’s release if the conditions are necessary to protect the public or the person.
A civil case involves one person suing another, with a settlement reached if one party is acquitted of the charges against the other.
The defendant must be compensated by the other party.
Civil law does not protect people from harassment or intimidation by a neighbor or person in a business, or from being discriminated against because of their race, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation, marital status, or veteran status.
Civil and special cases are also governed by state and federal laws.
In general, a person can be prosecuted in Massachusetts for the actions of another person if he or she acts in bad faith or maliciously.
Civil Law has no protections for property damage, although it may be protected from damages for injury or death.
