Per Uber, it prohibits its customers to deliver illegal items, including large sums of money and recreational drugs, but it is a regular occurrence today. My elderly mother was recently scammed out of most of her life savings. Using a Bandwidth.com account, a caller (using AI technology) claimed to... View More
If there was an agreement to pay the funds back, you can sue to recover…the questions are (1) can you prove the debt (especially if the agreement was oral rather than written); (2) how much time and cost will you incur to being an action; and (3) is there a means to collect on a judgment.
I am taking Meta/Facebook to small claims court because my account was hacked & a lot of the jobs that I have been applying for require a Facebook profile. I actually wouldn’t have cared if my name was common but I have an extremely uncommon name & it’s very easy for hiring managers to... View More
If someone wants to bring a claim against you in small claims court, one option could be to discuss the person's dispute or dissatisfaction to find out if court could be avoided through negotiation. If the matter has already gone to court, the other option could be to determine if you have any...View More
It’s been a few weeks since the neighbor complained and I have been working to address it… I noticed my dogs bark when they see people walk by so when I am home I make sure they are under control and when I am gone I put them in a small quiet room with no windows and with toys… to try to keep...

In New York, dealing with a neighbor's complaint about dog barking can be a delicate situation. It's commendable that you're taking steps to control your dogs' barking. If your neighbor proceeds with a lawsuit, they would need to prove that the barking is excessive and...View More
In determining whether to pursue your case in small claims court or a regular court in New York, consider the nature and complexity of your dispute. Small claims courts are typically suited for simpler, lower-value cases and can be faster and less formal. Regular courts can handle more complex...View More
The Skullgirls team has taken a digital product that many people purchased and altered it in very significant ways. They've cut out entire pages from the art book, removed and re-announced voice lines, and drawn over concept art to make it less offensive. The current Skullgirls team, while... View More
If you purchased a digital product like a game or an art book, the terms of the sale, including any End User License Agreement (EULA), will typically govern what the seller can and cannot do after the purchase. Many digital products come with licenses that allow the company to update or alter the...View More
The 1st prescription called for prism. They gave me headaches. They re-examined and eliminated the prism at no cost. These lenses left me with blurry vision. I went to my Gloucoma Ophthalmologist who said I have unusual problems with my vision (due to prism), and referred me to another speciaist... View More
Your post does not include a question. You need to review the exact terms of your warranty to see whether it includes the original cost of your lenses and not just the replacement cost and whether the warranty can be triggered by the recommendation of a different optometrist / ophthalmologist....View More
You might consider taking legal action to recover your funds. If the amount loaned is $2,500 and you have only received $100 back, you could potentially file a claim in small claims court, where you can sue for amounts typically up to $5,000 in New York.
Sorry to hear what happened to you. If the educator was the individual who applied (or misapplied) the hair product in question, you would arguably sue that person along with his or her employer (assuming the educator was acting within the scope of employment). In the meantime, take photographs...View More
The waste drain pipe broke, causing sewage to drain into the basement, they fixed the pipe, but didn’t clean up the sewage or sanitized that area of the property. Also they have not paid their water and sewer bill, now I am being billed for this also.
Your post doesn't mention the nature of the arrangement. If you reposted and added the categories "Landlord-Tenant" & "Real Estate," there would be better chances of attorneys with insight into such situations picking up your question. Good luck
Compulsory censorship of a digital good, such as an artbook or a game, after a sale may not be considered theft in the legal sense, but it could potentially lead to other legal issues or breaches of contract, depending on the circumstances and the terms of the sale or licensing agreement....View More
He paid for a good amount of the trip, but at the time had offered and was okay with everything. We were apart of a non profit org together, and after we removed him from the board for sexual misconduct (against me) hes retaliated. Hes sent me an invoice for our trip of over 1200 dollars. Am i... View More
This is like a question on a bar exam. The question is what was the agreement at the time the money was expended, not at a later time. Therefore, since the expenses were a "gift" at the time they were incurred, that is, there was no intent at that time to ask for reimbursement, the...View More
My landlord has provided an itemized statement and receipts for the deductions made to my security deposit through text messaging only, the day of the deadline (14th day) to send both itemized statement and remainder of security deposit to me by mail. I did not receive the remainder of the security... View More
So little law is developed in courts throughout the State dealing with the tenant security deposit statute. Likely, you would sue in Small Claims Court. I cannot predict that a local Small Claims Court would not decide that the text message satisfied the...View More
I provided him a bill but I have not received payment for 6 weeks now & when I call to inquire where my payment is, he says 'I don't know'. I have copies of text messages & voicemails. Do I sue him or the hotel? The amount is just under $100 but it's the principle. Our... View More
I stayed with a friend in another state. I asked if I could visit her and she agreed. We did not discuss any payment. I slept on her floor for 5 nights. We did some outdoor photo shoots together, since my friend is a photographer. After I left, she sent me a nasty email demanding $1730 for the... View More
Without knowing the state your friend lives in, none of us can say for sure, but from my NY perspective, unless you had an agreement in advance, she cannot unilaterally demand "rent" for 5 days on her floor now that she's mad at you. Your text, while not all that helpful, probably...View More
I recently stayed at my friend's apartment. I had asked in advance if I could come and she consented. We did not discuss any payment. I slept on the apartment floor for 5 nights. They picked me up from the airport and we did some travel activities together. We also did some outdoor photo shoot... View More
A text, after the fact, stating “ I’m happy to pay the expenses you demanded” is not itself a contract. The factual circumstances and your friend’s specific claim as to why they claim you owe the money will be the relevant points. If, for example, your friend claimed there was in fact an...View More
The village is stating they do not have to pay for it. The fence is set 10ft back from the edge of the road. The codes enforcer verified where we were putting the fence and approved our permit with the Village & town of Wilna. We submitted an estimate to the village, which we were never advised... View More
