First, ask Justia to take down the post with the persons name. Likely because that individual was wanted on a federal matter. Or it could have been related to an out of state matter. That's his problem, not yours.

you should be concerned because some jobs will take it seriously. Do contact a lawyer. You are lucky he didn't charge you with more, so if your lawyer says take it take it.

1 Answer | Asked in Contracts for Pennsylvania on
Q: Government has force no gatherings due to Covid19. I paid for a caterer at my wedding that is now canceled this month.

Can I get a refund of the non refundable deposit since this is force of nature. The contract states I have to pay 60% if it is canceled within 30 days. The wedding was planned for in two weeks but has been cancelled by the governments shutdown. The contract says nothing about a force majeure.

Peter N. Munsing
Peter N. Munsing answered on Mar 30, 2020

argue for the refund. You can always take them to small claims. Or if the whole thing was cancelled see if they will give you the deal then.

Q: My brother in law's company is asking for my medical records. Is this a HIPAA violation?

I do not work for the company and I was in quarantine for COVID-19 with a negative result. They won't allow him to return to work without documents of my negative results.

Peter N. Munsing
Peter N. Munsing answered on Mar 30, 2020

If he gets a negative test that should end it. They can't make him produce your records--that's silly. But assuming he wants his job......

Not sure why they'd want yours anyway. But they can't tell someone they can't work based on a third person's status.

Q: A couple from my 2and job while having been off for over a week because of the worldwide pandemic. have been fired.

No notice was give. what are their rights as to have done nothing to deserve to be fired?

Peter N. Munsing
Peter N. Munsing answered on Mar 30, 2020

They can get unemployement with no 5 day waiting. Hard to say if they have other rights as it's not clear why they were "off"---the fact that there is a pandemic doesn't get them off work if the workplace is legally open. But they should contact unemployment.

Q: Hi I'm John and will soon be attending Johnson and Whales. I was wondering if it's legal to live in a self storage area.
Peter N. Munsing
Peter N. Munsing answered on Mar 30, 2020

Probably violates an ordinance and the storage area won't like it. Maybe look for some deal where you clean in exchange for a break on the rent.

Pull the car off the road.

Report the car to your insurance. The other person is responsible if your car was off the road. Whether you violated a regulation by leaving it there doesn't give someone the right to plough into it if you parked it off of the road. Photos help. You can sue the...

no but you may have other issues. You need to watch what statements you give--and which he gives. Do thank him for not filing charges. Thinking you have permission isn't theft--but talk to an injury attorney if it was someone else's fault and you were hurt.

If the claimant wants to keep the car, yes they can say "well,you are getting back what the salvage value is." Now you need to determine how they figure that, and if what you get will allow you to repair the car to the level it can be inspected. If there are problems with that or other problems...

The notice saying you need to send proof would say who it is. If your license is in Mississippi it would be to the department of driver licensing. Your state police should be able to tell you.
