Does DD have to give me the film if I demand it for court?
They say it was nothing to do with anything on their property so they do not want to give it nor be involved.
Only a court document can FORCE them but they are human and if you can convince them as noted by the posters above, they will likely give it.

I can imagine some places do not want to give footage because they do not want to somehow get dragged into the case. But the issuance of a subpoena can eliminate that concern, by and large.

Is it legal to take I-phone photos of the four people inside a car if you suspect they caused some damage?

There is no privacy restriction on that is there?

If the vehicle is in a public space you can shoot a photo of whatever you want, and if they happen to be inside and showing that is perfectly legal.

They have threatened to sue me for invasion of privacy?

Is there any merit to that?

Is there any way to issue a subpoena for video surveillance tapes BEFORE a lawsuit is filed?

Thanks!

No. In the future if you have a question start your own thread.

A few states like Texas will let you take evidence before suit if there is a risk the evidence may be destroyed. Still it is cumbersome and usually needs an attorney to assist.

Better sometimes to just file quickly, even in small claims if need be.

Some firms will just give you the footage if you ask.
OR involve the police and have the police ask for the footage.
