Your question appears to involve Texas consumer law (Texas appears at the end of the question, but Albuquerque, New Mexico appears at the beginning). If you are in Texas, a Texas attorney would be the best person to advise. However, your question remains open for three weeks. As a general matter,...Read more »
This sounds like a hypothetical question for a business law or contract law class. If that's the case, go to the section of your textbook that covers Implied Contracts. That should provide you with some of the issues you could use. Good luck
In the past, it would have been no big deal. However, some communities and associations have rules prohibiting flyers, brochures, or similar materials. It could be worthwhile to confirm there are no local rules against it. Good luck
I signed a non compete. That only says, I will not compete with the guy in the state of GA for 2 years. It does not say what the competitive services are. He breached the contract by not paying the full amount by $96. The full amount was to be paid in 90 days, in 3 installments. He shorted me the... Read more »
We are essentially closing the company, leaving only our online/digital product offerings available and have let all contractors go. She is our only employee and we simply can't afford to keep her. I'm not sure the best way to do this to ensure we don't affect her paid family leave through the... Read more »
This is not an easy scenario. If the company is truly closing and you can't afford to keep her, your reason for letting her go seems justified or based on necessity. However, if there are still employees at the company (I mention this because you state that you are still maintaining...Read more »

if you are thinking of void the agreement and you have received payment, the oral agreement could be enforced, Unfortunately legally, the situation is out of your hand right now. All you can do is to pursuade another company to receive them.
I'd like to hand out business flyers at individual office suites within an office building. Do I need the landlords or cities permission to do this? Can I leave business cards behind if the tenant is not present.
Yes, it would be advisable to get the landlord's permission, identify yourself at the security desk, and obtain tenant's consent at their reception desk if you are given permission to go up to their floor or suite. Enhanced security protocols have made entering large office buildings more stringent...Read more »
A Georgia attorney could provide the most reliable authority in terms of how lobbying might be defined by the laws of Georgia. But your question remains open for four weeks. As a general matter, I don't think a reasonable person would see what you're doing here as an artist as lobbying. Lobbying is...Read more »
We owned a Servpro restoration franchise. 2 years ago we sold our license instead of renewing, and went on our own. We took all labeling off the vehicles. Servpro is now telling us that we have to have the vehicles repainted. They do not have the color trademarked. The vehicles were never... Read more »
The franchisor can make you stop using their trademarks. You may be correct that the color is not a trademark, but did you agree in the franchise agreement to comply with this request? If repainting is not covered by the agreement or by trademark law or by state competition law (which might be...Read more »
There are several interesting legal issues here. What was the partnership agreement's conditions on what happens in the event of a death?

I am under the impression that New York doesn't allow for domestication, and because it is required in both states it wouldn't be possible as a result. Therefore, my only options would be creating two LLCs, potentially dissolving the original, or creating a foreign entity in CA. However, I recently... Read more »
Hello and thank you for using JUSTIA. There is no one place to find HOA regulations. Each community sets up its own rules and regulations. However there are basic rules such as horizontal laws for condominiums and access control laws for gated communities.
I am trying to start a business but the name is taken on instagram and facebook, but the accounts have not posted in years, and has under 100 followers on instagram and just 2 on facebook, can that lead to trouble?
It's possible that you may have an issue with the name. I'd probably look at the US Trademark database (uspto.gov) to see if anyone has filed a trademark for the name. If not, I'd check the database for your state's secretary of state and any fictitious business name (i.e., "doing business as" or...Read more »
