Fact or Fiction? Dispelling Legal Myths.
When it comes to legal matters, what you don’t know can hurt you. Here are a few of the most common legal myths you should know about. Just keep in mind that laws can vary by state.
1) Attorney-client privilege is absolute. There are all sorts of exceptions to this rule and requirements for it to apply. There are also a number of cases where courts have ruled to pierce the privilege.
2) You can’t be sued for a crime you didn’t commit. Unfortunately, there are very few protections against frivolous litigation in America. You can be sued anytime, by anybody, for anything.
3) Police can’t enter your home without a warrant. Actually, if they think someone is in danger, emergency regulations permit them to enter a building without obtaining a warrant.
