Trees on my property in NYC: what is the law if it hangs over to my neighbors property, can he come after me or my insurance? Or since (I believe) legally he can cut anything that’s over his property it’s his problem to trim etc to avoid damages?

It depends if the tree is rotten or otherwise defective.  If its rotten and you knew that it was rotten, you could be on the hook if the tree falls and causes damage to your neighbor's property.  If the tree is in good condition, you are probably in the clear. 

Your neighbor is allowed to cut the overhanging branches down if they are bothering him but he cannot touch the main body of the tree (courts refer to this as "self help").  You definitely cannot force your neighbor to cut the tree himself.

I dont know if the New York City code has any specific law which shifts responsibility, but in NY in general you can't force your neighbor to trim the tree over your property or even to do anything on his side. If the neighbor's tree falls and does damage on your property I believe that the neighbor and/or his insurance wont be liable unless you can prove that the tree was already in bad shape (rot, dying, prior damage) which was known to him and which he did not remedy before it caused damage to your property.
Thanks!

Question regarding pending injunction relief.

 Agudah vs Jackson township. Has requested an injunction on all ordinances targeting ERUV and other based on religion bias. The judge will rule on 10/7.

 I have received a violation for one of the ordinances that’s part of the injunction request. My court date is 9/25.
 
Is there an official or non official way to request  that I given till 10/7 to remove my “violation”.
If I need to remove it it will cost me $500-700.
Thanks

Since I’m in violation I have 15 days to remove it. By pushing off the court date that may Result in a fine  for the days I have it on my property

Dont know much about the Agudah lawsuit vs Jackson Township but why not call the lawyers who are representing the Agudah and ask them. They may have information about challenges to the statute. They may also know whether the 10/7 date is a real date as often these dates are for conferences and/or hearings and the Judge issues his decision weeks or months later.

On November 11th, 2019 I pulled over and accidentally hit two parked vehicles in Miami-Dade County (Wynwood). There was no one in either of those vehicles nor my vehicle to wittness it. So there were no wittnesses. I found the owners of those vehicles and filed a police report together. The police officer issued me a citation for improper backing. He advised me to plead not guilty and appear in court. He said that he will appear in court but will not be able testify to the infraction as he did not wittness the infraction. I have a pretrail date set for 12/27/2019 I live in New York and don't want to come down for this. I am thinking of filing an affadavit of defense:

http://www.miami-dadeclerk.com/library/traffic/899-web.pdf

My questions are?
1) Considering that I "did" commit the infraction, would ticking the "I Am Denying" option be considered purjury?
2) Do I need to tick any of the options provided?
3) If I don't, what should my argument be?
4) Does filing the affadavit decrease my chances of the case getting dissmissed?


Thanks In Advance

I would read law and argue  the definition of “improper”.
U can argue that although you  accidentally  Hit the car that doesnt make the “act” am “improper”.
From a simplistic view, doing something by accident is by no means doing something improper.
 I would also find out if you need to explain your argument or you can just say “I dont Believe i did that”. If not you dont deen a compelling argument at all, just a basis for say you dont bthink so.

I was in an accident & I am told the driver at fault doesnt have insurance since March. Can someone advise what my next steps are...I have damage to my car & I dont have coverage for myself.

What happened: "Making left turn,stopped with left blinker on - 2 cars behind me's brakes failed. Car behind me hits the left side of my car bumper & car number 3 (whose brakes failed) hit on my right bumper & right swiped my car until we were attached.

"uninsured motorist" coverage from  your own insurance should cover.
How to access it, I don't know.

It varies from state to state, but uninsured motorist coverage is not for property damage claims in NY.
