Most of your rights are set out in the written rental agreement that you have. Don't have one? You still have rights to 60 day notice to move and a moving allowance of one month rent. You are entitled to a return of whatever security deposit you have with the LL. The problem is that the...Read more »
Never once did they address parking on our walk thru. Not 1 sign is posted anywhere in the entire complex or gates, addressing parking. My car was not near a fire hydrant, stuck, blocking any entrance, or impeding traffic, foot or vehicle? Nor did they give any notice, 72 hours or otherwise... and... Read more »
Create a paper trail showing that you requested a permit for your car. Sue all three in small claims because the security co is just an agent of the LL, and the tow company is just an agent of the LL, too. There is a section of the VC that prohibits a company from towing when the registered owner...Read more »
I've made such a Huge mistake because the honorable judge gave me a chance to leave to amend it once 7 months ago.. yet because I didn't believe in myself I did a dumb thing I just assumed I would retain an attorney to do it for me.. Nope.. so the judge gave me 15 days to make a third... Read more »
It is obvious from your post that you need to get an attorney, you even admit you need to. You might get some leeway due to the various orders stopping court proceedings due to pandemic, but something needs to be done pronto. The good news is that if your other claims have...Read more »
It depends on what kind of ticket you received. First, this is best posted in Utah, since Utah rules apply, not California. It depends on what kind of a ticket you received, some tickets require you to show up, like over 100 mph, or involved in an accident, and there are plenty of roads in Utah on...Read more »
There was one occupied and one unoccupied child seat at the time of my car accident. Progressive says they will only pay $125 to replace the occupied seat. Is this acceptable per CA carseat laws? I was under the assumption they should be responsible for fully reimbursing the cost of both seats.... Read more »
IMO the issue is not whether the seat was occupied, but whether it was damaged so as to make it dangerous to continue to use for a child's safety. You have asked several questions about this and Mr. Light told you what to do to go to small claims to obtain satisfaction, which is your best...Read more »
Yes, you are entitled to a relocation fee of 30 day's rent, if you lived there more than a year; and yes, he can evict you if you don't move after 60 days. You need to find a place to move to, or negotiate with the LL for an extension.
hospital. I was told I have to wait 2 years after I resign from my current job in order to apply as a contractor with the state hospital. How is this legal? I am not involved in any negotiations, planning, arrangements or any policy-making relevant to physician contractors. My current job is as a... Read more »
Mr. Pedersen is correct that there are California statutes that prohibit restricting most employers from preventing former employees from obtaining employment with "competitors". Think of a manufacturer's salesman, he can quit and work for a competitor but he cannot use trade secret...Read more »
A person seeking to be the conservator of another's person or property (that is two different types of conservator) must file a petition in the County in which the conservatee resides with the Superior Court, usually the Probate department. There are a lot of hoops to jump through, you will...Read more »
If a candidate accepts a verbal offer and sets a start date but does not have I-9 documentation and doesn't not start work on the start date, can an employer rescind the offer or must they hold that offer open?
The way this is worded it sounds like it comes from an Employer not an Employee. You use the word "candidate" which implies that this is some specialized position requiring qualifications to be vetted, not just a fry cook at McDoos. Based on that I would say there is insufficient...Read more »
A year ago I prevailed in a breach of contract case brought against me. Now the plaintiffs from that case are attempting to sue me for "wrongful use of civil procedures" from the breach of contract case. The plaintiff complains about the manner in which my attorney's defended me in... Read more »
The question- do your former attorneys have an obligation to represent you in the new suit, is no. However, as Mr. Dorfman points out, this could be disposed of by a civil procedure, and then it could be turned around and become a Malicious Prosecution lawsuit by you against the other side, and...Read more »
You need to find an expert in Cell Phone Technology like the guys on Catfish, who can show that someone cloned your phone and is sending messages pretending to be you from the clone. People masquerade as others all the time. It has been an email problem for about 15 years.
I have filed a copyright lawsuit in CA as a pro se litigant. Does opposing counsel need to verify his responses to Plaintiff’s Request for Production of Documents? He has produced no documents and objects to all but two requests. Thank you.
If you filed a copyright case in pro per, you are swimming in very deep water with a lot of sharks. Opposing counsel does not need to verify Objections that are responses, but if he did not object to 2 of your requests those responses must be verified by the Defendant. If you do not agree with...Read more »
My friend passed away, I am the named Executor, in probate court now. Next court date in Dec. A squatter who says he's been living in house of decedent, since 1/2019, is driving 2 cars, 1 with expired registration and no insurance is on cars. This person has not been living there at all....

The taking of another's property without permission is theft. The police deal with this. You can call and ask for an officer to meet you at the property and with proof of your right to possession of the property as the executor, get the keys.
My friend has a mentally abusive father. He screams at her for really small things for a long time now. He cusses and screams and it has taken a toll on my friends mental health. She has considered going to court with her mom to get out of custody from him but they’re scared to lose, or if they... Read more »
There is a procedure called the emancipation of a minor that would exclude her father from further duties/privileges in raising her. Sounds like she really needs to contact a Family Law Attorney that handles Child custody matters for a full consultation.
While conducting a traffic enforcement stop - the officer asks vehicle operator to roll down tinted windows (example: 0 percent tint). If that reveals contraband is that in plain view? - or does the action of rolling down windows alter?
Why is a LEO different from a GEMINI or a TAURUS? An officer has the right to ask you to step out of the vehicle and if opening the door would reveal the contraband you left in plain sight, it is probably not an infringement. You might need to establish that rolling down the window was not within...Read more »
Very sorry to hear that you are experiencing these problems. Temecula is a real hot spot so no AC is really a problem. You can fight them but you will risk getting an unlawful detainer complaint filed against you and have to defend that. If you have been there more than a year, you are entitled to...Read more »
