I hired a business broker in May to sell by business. For the last 3.5 months he has not done anything to sell my business. He hadn’t posted it on the BusinessMLS or BizBuySell. Nowhere.

I agree with Ms. Kim. Giving you an answer to your question requires an attorney to read all of the terms of the contract/agreement. Consult with an attorney who handles commercial law and/or business litigation and provide them with the contract beforehand.
My husband and I entered into a rent to own contract 3 years ago.

On the other hand, if you are on a month-to-month tenancy (no lease), the landlord can simply file a 15-day notice to...Read more »
That is a pretty vague description of the event. It depends on what you mean by "denies new evidence." If the judge finds that a probationer did not violate probation despite the state's allegation/evidence, the person will either go back on probation most of the time. I recommend...Read more »
Generally speaking, you can only violate your probation for violating one of the terms or conditions of the order of probation in your case.

It is tough to say without reading the entire agreement, but "competitive products " could be interpreted to mean "skin care, cosmetic or such other products which have been sold or marketed by the Business."
I’m in a process of real estate insurance claim and adjuster wants to have a recorded statement from me. Do I really obligated to give him a statement or I can refuse a statement?!

There wasn’t a gun to recover but a person claim the seen the defendant with a gun and is the only one that is constantly saying so. The state says they don’t believe the victims recant so they proceeded with the case. Why is this possible?

There is nothing to stop the state from attempting to prove the charge. There isn't a motion to dismiss or something like that that...Read more »
