Probably but you might be able to sue in Idaho. You should consult an Idaho lawyer with your promissory note or contract to determine where you can file suit.
I believe they are not assessing dues properly, misappropriating funds, in breach of contract for performance, and paying a bookkeeper that is incompetent inflated and unreported compensation.

I really enjoy questions like this because I champion the rights of home owners in an HOA. An HOA is kind of like being in the mafia, but instead of being a "soldier," treated with some respect, you're treated with disrespect and ridicule. You should get a copy of the HOA's... Read more »

An Idaho attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. Until you're able to arrange a meaningful consult with a local attorney, it's worth noting that nationwide, liability waivers are not a substitute for insurance. They can have limitations. You could... Read more »

The warranty that CANNOT be waived is the warranty that the "car will be fit for the purpose it was intended." If you bought the car "AS IS," did you ask any questions? Did you ask to have the car overnight to have a mechanic look at it? You also mentioned your question as a... Read more »
I gifted him stock which he sold to afford the purchase

It sounds like personal property by gift, if it can be substantiated, and therefore, NOT community property!
The company that we as a community wanted to fire last year, got us on contract again thanks to failure to act by our Board. They have again failed to file our annual report with the Idaho Secretary of State, thus administratively dissolving our HOA.
answered on Aug 20, 2020
An HOA contract is just that, a contract. The HOA is a selected (or elected) group of home owners who act on behalf of the entire plat of homes. If you have a copy of the contract please read it carefully. It will dictate how and when a home owner(s) may dissolve the board. Unless the contract... Read more »

LLCs are not taxed. The income flows through to the members. The foreign members will have... Read more »
I need to collect about $20000 owed to me by an ex-employer in Idaho. I've all the paperwork and a determination from the Department of Labor saying they need to pay.

Hi here is some information for you.

You could use the District Court’s (Small Lawsuit) method. Idaho... Read more »
Hi, while my parents were trying to sell their business my dad passed away and I believe my parents business broker and the buyer took advantage of my mom while she's was grieving. She signed the papers to sell two weeks ago the new owner took over but she still hasn't been paid. The new... Read more »
answered on Feb 19, 2020
Possibly. Grieving is not a legal reason to avoid a contract. What you should do is gently question your mother and find out why she agreed to the terms the buyer offered? Was your mom represented by a realtor or attorney? Why weren’t you there to help her in the closing?
The money comes from a tax on Amazon. How do i get a piece of it ?
answered on Oct 24, 2019
I didn't know that private citizens were entitled to share in a tax imposed upon Amazon? What makes you think that you're entitled to take part of a tax that Amazon has to pay based upon, what? I need a LOT more information before I could give you a very good answer.

It sounds like you have a potentially strong claim for trademark infringement, so I'd recommend speaking to an attorney to get this resolved.

You're probably fine with the word engorgio, but once you include any symbols from Harry Potter, you'll run afoul of trademark laws.
3 cords of wood were bought and the seller only delivered 1 1/2. Stated that the rest would be delivered the next day. It has been 2 months and wood or money has not been returned.

Although you don't have a writing, it appears that you have evidence that a contract was entered. It will now be an issue of forcing delivery. Please contact an attorney if you need assistance.

There are going to be a number of ethical issues here for attorneys. For example, there are rules about referral services like this as well as how the attorneys would be paid. Because there are so many issues to discuss, I'd recommend finding an attorney to review this all in detail.
answered on Apr 17, 2018
This is kind of a tough one because it really depends on the scope of the project. I imagine that advertising, registration, and consumer laws will all come into play. I'd recommend discussing this with an attorney to get a detailed answer.

The prior owners will be responsible, but the new ones may be as well depending on the sales agreement when they purchased the business. You may want to talk to an attorney who can review all the facts of your situation.
answered on Mar 9, 2018
It will effect you if you buy the business along with its current obligations. For this reason, it's important to structure the sale so that it protects you against claims directed at the former owner.

My suspicion is that the company wrote your debt off when it sold it to the collection company. However, I'd recommend having an attorney review the situation for you to give a more definitive answer.
Credit card company has my debt written as a tax write-off. Collection company is still trying to collect. If the first company writes off the debt, can a collection company collect off of it?
answered on Feb 14, 2018
My understanding is that they can. The company wrote off the debt when they sold your account to the collection company. I'd recommend reviewing the whole situation with an attorney.
