I really enjoy questions like this because I champion the rights of home owners in an HOA. An HOA is kind of like being in the mafia, but instead of being a "soldier," treated with some respect, you're treated with disrespect and ridicule. You should get a copy of the HOA's...View More
An Idaho attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. Until you're able to arrange a meaningful consult with a local attorney, it's worth noting that nationwide, liability waivers are not a substitute for insurance. They can have limitations. You could...View More

The warranty that CANNOT be waived is the warranty that the "car will be fit for the purpose it was intended." If you bought the car "AS IS," did you ask any questions? Did you ask to have the car overnight to have a mechanic look at it? You also mentioned your question as a...View More
The company that we as a community wanted to fire last year, got us on contract again thanks to failure to act by our Board. They have again failed to file our annual report with the Idaho Secretary of State, thus administratively dissolving our HOA.
An HOA contract is just that, a contract. The HOA is a selected (or elected) group of home owners who act on behalf of the entire plat of homes. If you have a copy of the contract please read it carefully. It will dictate how and when a home owner(s) may dissolve the board. Unless the contract...View More
I need to collect about $20000 owed to me by an ex-employer in Idaho. I've all the paperwork and a determination from the Department of Labor saying they need to pay. The amount is too large for me to sue in small claims though - What are my alternatives? (Suing in magistrate court vs. hiring... View More
Hi, while my parents were trying to sell their business my dad passed away and I believe my parents business broker and the buyer took advantage of my mom while she's was grieving. She signed the papers to sell two weeks ago the new owner took over but she still hasn't been paid. The new... View More
Possibly. Grieving is not a legal reason to avoid a contract. What you should do is gently question your mother and find out why she agreed to the terms the buyer offered? Was your mom represented by a realtor or attorney? Why weren’t you there to help her in the closing?
I didn't know that private citizens were entitled to share in a tax imposed upon Amazon? What makes you think that you're entitled to take part of a tax that Amazon has to pay based upon, what? I need a LOT more information before I could give you a very good answer.
The competing business is in my same exact industry with the same exact product type and in my same town. The names are off by ONE letter and the distinctive part is exactly the same. Is there anything I can do do avoid the loss and/or confusion of my clientele? Social media is important in what I... View More
My idea for a nonprofit allows victims/survivors regarding an alleged sexual crime to enter information online into a database (database is not available for public access). If a second (or more) survivor submits an alleged sexual crime and the information matches that of of another alleged... View More
There are going to be a number of ethical issues here for attorneys. For example, there are rules about referral services like this as well as how the attorneys would be paid. Because there are so many issues to discuss, I'd recommend finding an attorney to review this all in detail.
This is kind of a tough one because it really depends on the scope of the project. I imagine that advertising, registration, and consumer laws will all come into play. I'd recommend discussing this with an attorney to get a detailed answer.
I had an LLC do a $15k backyard project in October 2017, issues have risen and I am now planning to take the company to small claims. I learned that the company switched owners at the beginning of March 2018 and the new owners are now claiming they are not responsible. It is all listed under the... View More
The prior owners will be responsible, but the new ones may be as well depending on the sales agreement when they purchased the business. You may want to talk to an attorney who can review all the facts of your situation.
It will effect you if you buy the business along with its current obligations. For this reason, it's important to structure the sale so that it protects you against claims directed at the former owner.
