In order to have a claim for negligence or an intentional tort you must have suffered damages. Damages usually means physical damages or monetary damages.

You will likely need to talk to an attorney. If you have not used any item then you likely have not infringed on any protected work. You may have a right of action against the company that sold you the hard drive as well. You may have a number of legal defenses.
You can hire an attorney to file a Declaratory Judgment Action against the County and State. It would probably be a Fifth Amendment based issue, but has little likelihood of success. The expense alone would exceed the the Sewer Charges for several years.
He is trying to assume control of the business since I have been out due to illness, misses 2 days a week due to Alcohol. If I fire him do I need to compensate him since he is an equal stockholder. We no longer have a buy-sell agreement due to a prior lawsuit last year. He does not want another... Read more »
This can't be answered in this limited question-answer format. An attorney would need to closely review the corporations' by-laws to determine how to break a "deadlock." Since you are "equal stockholders" it appears that neither of you have the legal authority to oust or exclude the other. based...Read more »
Your question is not clear to me. TCA 62-20-101 et seq. provides for licensing of business that collect debts. Subsection e allows for someone to voluntarily make a payment or in the event of a final judgment pay the judgment. The person cannot set aside the payment simply because he debt...Read more »

My brother gave all pertinent papers (*wills) to this person, then realized it was not the person who had been hired. He stopped payment on a check in the amt. of $6800.00, called the appropriate person, and he's now waiting to hear from him again. I live in TN, as well as my brother, although he's... Read more »
You will have to call the Sheriff's Department and ask to swear out a Warrant with a Detective. Let the Magistrate decide which Criminal Statute was violated. But since you actually paid no money, probably no charges will be issued. It is possible a Complaint to the Land Surveyor's Branch of...Read more »
Your question is unclear- there will be no "common law" on these issues. Any issues concerning a corporation's assumed name or reserved name are governed by the state statutes regarding corporations, and also perhaps the rules of the Secretary of States' office.
Congratulations on your new venture! I hope that it is a great success.

You could contact the police but I am doubtful the police would get involved. After all the customer didn't go get...Read more »
If that is all you want to accomplish, you do not need to convert the partnership to another entity. A partnership can obtain an EIN, allowing the partnership to obtain credit and file taxes under the partnership's EIN, rather than a partner's SSN. You can apply for an EIN on the IRS website.
