  1. "Very well, let the record reflect a plea of not guilty has been entered. Since no motions or subpoenas have been submitted thus far, enough time has elapsed, we'll begin with opening remarks." *Irma Whitney looks over at the prosecution table, patiently waiting a response.* (( @LewisGazzard @Zebulon ))

  3. Which is why I said that running the company with a lack of funds (i.e. receiving a large fine or being the subject of a lawsuit or other civil penalty) makes it untenable. You're also assuming that a company always has debts, which it may not necessarily. I can right now go register a corporation in my state for a few hundred bucks and it can just sit, without debts it won't ever become insolvent.
  4. A legal company is ultimately just a registered legal entity. If you own a company and commit a crime, then go to prison, no, the company does not just disappear, regardless if it's related to the company or not, just like in real life. There are other IC repercussions that are possible of course like you could receive a fine, which makes running the company untenable in the long-run without more capital, or if you utilize certain assets in the commission of a crime, they could be subject to civil forfeiture, etc, but there is no, for lack of a better term, "cops and robbers" type of dichotomy where the cops can shut down your business by doing X Y and Z.

  6. General Information Here you will find the majority of the information you will need in order to learn how to use the courts, assuming you have sufficient, basic legal knowledge. This is geared towards informing people who are already relatively knowledgeable on how the specific systems of the courts work, rather than the laws themselves. This thread is a mixture of knowledge that is both OOC and IC. Use common sense.

  7. San Andreas State Laws The laws which govern the State of San Andreas are as follows. Penalties and Offense Classification The Penalties and Offense Classification Act of 1992 outlines the various degrees of criminal and non-criminal violations within the state and creates a base for which all other laws are then written from. Criminal Code The Criminal Code Act of 1972 contains the bulk of the criminal statutes in the state, often referred to as a "penal code", it lists all laws commonly expected such as robbery, homicide, arson, kidnapping, torture, mayhem, and more. Uniform Traffic Control The Uniform Traffic Control Act of 1969 consists of laws related to vehicles and traffic in the state. This is a mixture of felonies, misdemeanors, and non-criminal violations along with additional information such as emergency vehicle designations. Firearm Licensing The Firearm Licensing Act of 2016 contains the principle statutes to regulate firearms and the legal possession of them in the state. Sovereign Immunity The Sovereign Immunity Act of 1991 describes the limitations of civil liability related to government agencies and employees. Stand Your Ground The Stand Your Ground Act of 2003 serves as the seminal law in the state, giving a clear blueprint of what is acceptable and not acceptable in terms of use of force for self-defense. Law Enforcement Safety The Law Enforcement Safety Act of 2014 provides protections and privileges to retired and active law enforcement in the state so they may carry legal firearms. Stop and Frisk The Stop and Frisk Act of 2016 describes what is permissible under state law, pertaining to what is commonly referred to as a "stop and frisk" or "terry stop". Liquor Control The Liquor Control Act of 1977 details the laws surrounding the serving, sale, and handling of alcohol within the state. (( At the moment, all laws are a continual work in progress. Changes will be listed in a section at the bottom of every law called "Amendments". The wiki format gives us a very legible format that can be easily edited and reviewed without having to worry about copy-paste formatting errors that occur on the forums often. All new laws and major changes will always be announced in character through government publications and news articles related to "legislative sessions" and other similar events. )) (( Questions should be directed to ThatGuy VIA Discord (Dexter#0297) or the Forums. ))

  10. For those that have not seen previous similar discussions, I will try to summarize. The way tokens work, they do not allow the value of the asset acquired to transfer throughout the server. This means, you can buy a token house, but you cannot sell it then to the government for cash or ultimately make any money from it. The same applies for vehicles. The value of these tokens, given the pricing of housing right now, can buy you quite a lot, but as the server grows, properties will continue to increase in price as the economy has more cash injected into it and the value of property or vehicle tokens can buy will continually be lowered in contrast. This was very clearly seen in MTA. Anyone who went around trying to find a property that they could buy with a token knew about this. It was often properties like trailers and such which already were largely not being bought or utilized, so it filled that niche. This is a far better solution than, as mentioned before, giving people a bunch of money for their first X amount of hours, or requiring someone to grind a job for hours from day 1 to even RP having a basic life in Los Santos. There are plenty of people who want to be able to start RPing right away, so having a small house and a cheap token vehicle only facilitates RP and causes zero inflation or damage to the economy. Properties and vehicles bought with tokens are subject to the inactivity scanner like anything else. I think in contrast it's very obvious that having a temporary house makes little sense, what are we going to do, let them use the house, have it so it stores their items, it's a location they park their car, their friends know they live there, etc, then randomly one day take it after some arbitrary number of playing hours? Doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Conversely, should we just inflate the economy a whole bunch and increase state benefits paychecks for the first X amount of hours in hopes they'll use that to buy a house and not survive on ketchup packets, sleeping under an overpass? Or should we just say tough luck, you can't RP being from a low to middle class family already in Los Santos, go grind a script job for 10 hours to buy a house? I hope I've made my point clear. Anyone who's played DnD knows the token principal as well. You're almost always given some form of starter equipment or gear and money so that you can FACILITATE roleplay. That is what is most important to us. People ROLEPLAYING and I think a while ago we came up with this solution to not hurt the economy and also do that. This is a system that won't be fundamentally changing.
