My friend is a nurse that works for a Sisters of Mercy clinic in the state of Missouri. Every major holiday, such as Fourth of July, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc., the clinic is closed but the nurses are forced to take a day of PTO for the "missed" day, even though the department made the choice to...

You didn't ask a question, but if you want to know what to do, the answer is to meet with an attorney knowledgeable with landlord tenant law. Most importantly, don't ignore the suit or a default judgment will likely be taken against you.
I recently purchased a home in the St. Louis, MO area. The previous owner said no pets, no renters, and we found out both are untrue. My kids are extremely allergic to pets and once we moved in and removed the 16 air fresheners around the house, the smell of pet urine was overwhelming. We've had... Read more »
Wow, that sounds like bad misrepresentations. You should meet with an attorney to review your sale contract and assess potential causes of action. Missouri has a strong consumer protection statute called the Merchandising Practices Act (MPA). The MPA is great in failure to disclose and...Read more »
2 weeks ago my aunt called me and told me that the cop was at her house saying my dog and some other dog were wondering town and apparently bit another dog. I told my aunt there is no way it was my dog. I then asked to talk to the officer and he told me that someone needed to come get my dog... Read more »
House had foundation work done but didn’t notice any problems. Haven’t moved in yet what should I do. The living room wall looks like it’s gonna explode has a two inch bulge splitting the dry wall. Just closed on the house 4 days ago.
I’m sorry to hear about your “new” house. A house is a huge purchase. You should meet with a real estate attorney promptly to review your sale contract and disclosure form and assess whether you might be able to achieve a satisfactory resolution. A relevant question is whether the seller...Read more »
Recently, I doodled on a medical document and upon finding out that it was prohibited, I told the Dir. of quality control, who then told me "Its okay.It happens" later on an incident with a coworker happened where she thought I posted a Facebook status about her. She kept texting me and I did not... Read more »
You aren’t going to want to hear this, but Missouri is an employment-at-will state. For termination purposes, it’s irrelevant whether your employer is mean or unfair. It cannot fire you on account of race, religion, national origin, etc., but can fire you over believe you did something...Read more »

Sorry to hear of your troubles. If you received a notice of eviction—but haven’t been sued and lost and received a notice that the sheriff is coming to return possession to the landlord—then you won’t be physically forced out by July 3. If you get served a summons, show up at court....Read more »
It's terrible what happended to your parents but if the incident happened in Missouri you are way past the statute of limitations. A California attorney would need to advise you on the statute of limitations in California but I suspect it is far shorter than 40 years.
We are trying to fire our present garbage company and change to a different company with much better pricing. Our original company was bought out by Waste Management a few months ago. They claim that we had a contract with L&K started in 2006 and that it went for 5 years and then renewed... Read more »
What you have is a contract issue. An attorney would need to read the contract to provide you with sound advice. That being said, I’m familiar with waste industry contracts and they are generally harsh. The often renew automatically unless the customer gives sufficient notice of non-renewal....Read more »
Read the article I published about getting default judgments set aside. It might apply to your situation, depending on whether you were properly served. https://www.avvo.com/legal-guides/ugc/how-to-get-a-default-judgment-set-aside

How can you see the docket or what information do you need? I’m just curious as the hearing that’s coming up about this. I understand that me not working it won’t go away but they haven’t made any attempt to serve my ex at all.
Without seeing the docket entry, there's no way for me to answer that question other than to guess that maybe they only got one fo the two of you served and the next hearing is on a motion to review but as to the other one of you.
Whether you do or don't have money to to pay the judgment is...Read more »

We just found out the sellers lied on disclosure when they said they were not aware of any other foundation problems. We know the were aware, because the contractor that repaired the 3 minor cracks for them has this huge one in his report. He made the repairs and then the sellers finished the... Read more »
