Legal advice for an encounter with an unstable dog owner?

At the dog park yesterday, one of the regular dogs (let's call her Fido) attempted to start play with a dog new to the park by herding (complete with nipping). The new dog completely freaked out, screaming like crazy (and in the process attracting all the other dogs to come find out what the hell was going on). New dog's owner (an attorney, as has surfaced today) also completely freaked out, and is now threatening to file a lawsuit against Fido's owner, claiming Fido viciously attacked his dog.

In search of interesting place to elope...

Where to elope? The SO and I would like to elope in January, but we haven't found a place that suits us. A Justice of the Peace/city hall-type wedding would suit us well, but if possible, we'd like that municipal building to be a wonderful, old, beautiful (or new and funky) building in an interesting country/city/area that we could spend some time exploring.

How should a therapist go about refusing to treat a patient?

A friend of mine underwent counseling at a trauma center. After the first several sessions, today his therapist had a supervisor come in, sat him down, and after 45 minutes of excruciating back and forth, essentially told him that because of what he did for a living, he could no longer attend therapy there.

What do all capital letters in legal documents signify?

What do all capital letters in legal documents signify? Many legal documents contain stretches of normal text alternating with stretches that are in all-caps. Is there a legal meaning to it? What would be the ramifications of printing the all-caps portion in normal capitalization - i.e., could that render the document ineffective?

Is Income Tax Illegal in the USA?

Is there a law requiring you to pay Income Tax? I saw this video over at youtube, from The FreedomtoFacisim.com website. They say that Income tax is illegal and there are no laws. They even mention that the 16th admendment isn't valid via the supreme court. Ok, are these guys wackos? IRS has guns, so they make the rules, thats all I know.

Trademarks: Can I google you on Yahoo?

Does trademark law really offer any basis for the practice of using legal threats to prevent a trademark from becoming common usage? This article in the Google Blog strongly suggests that trademark law prohibits me from using (in a non-commercial context like a post on MeFi) the verb "to google" to mean "to search on the Yahoo search engine." Is this so? [more inside]

Finding part of the DC Municipal Regs?

Does anyone happen to know how to find an electronic version of Title 18 Chapter 3 of the District of Columbia Municipal Regulations? Damn that DC, only certain titles of the DCMR have been made available online (apparently for the simple reason that DC can't muster the staff to put them all online, bleah). I'm hunting for the actual law that establishes DC's driving infraction point system, something that's apparently codified in said Title 18 Chapter 3, and would love to get a version of the law that I can keep archived on my computer! (Apparently, the entirety of the DCMR is available on Lexis-Nexis and Westlaw, but non-law peons like myself don't get the benefit of this. Double bleah.)
