You could sue. My guess is the gym had you sign a waiver when you joined, so you'll have to contend with that. Speak with a local litigation attorney. [I litigate cases.

This is one of the more interesting questions of the day. Not sure what you mean, but speak with a local attorney. [I litigate cases. Anything posted here must not be construed as legal advice, nor as grounds for forming an attorney-client relationship. You should seek an attorney for formal legal...Read more »
I called yahoo today about an issue with receiving an email from TIKTOC. I had no trouble getting in my emails on my cell phone or desktop computer at all and use it daily. After speaking to the Agent I was logged out on all devices to my yahoo account then told I had to reset the password. An old... Read more »
I paid quite a bit of money last year for some treatments for my skin. The doctor said she would include treatments for my hands, but she did not do those treatments and when I asked her about it, she was very defensive, but then agreed she would honor that. Now, she has decided she doesn't... Read more »
The company, Chegg required the subscription on January 22, 2019 so my daughter could buy a text book. I didn't notice the $14.95 on my credit card statement until July 2022. We contacted Chegg and they refunded 3 months ($44.85), but we've paid them $612.95 in subscription fees. Does... Read more »
Likely you are on the hook if you signed up for reoccurring payments. However, it could have been deceptive advertising if the presence of these reoccurring charges were not clearly made to you when you signed up.
I can think of a few laws that fall under this idea, but none that are intriguing enough to write a paper about. Any ideas of a law that we regularly abide by even though it doesn't directly align with personal values?
"We have respect for the law, as an institution, even though... Read more »
Not sure this meets your "regularly abide by" criterion, but, I practiced in Oklahoma City for 15 years, and there was a criminal law on the books sanctioning the "Abominable Crime Against Nature" (originally passed, it is surmised, to outlaw anything that gay people might do...Read more »
I paid cash for a used motorcycle from a repair/dealership owned by someone I have known a long time. The owner himself sold it to me. I gave him the cash, he gave me the title and keys. Done deal right? Well turns out the title he gave me was 'invalid'. I found this out after bike was... Read more »
No. ". . .furnishing of alcoholic beverages is not the proximate cause of injuries resulting from intoxication, but rather the consumption of alcoholic beverages is the proximate cause of injuries inflicted upon another by an intoxicated person."
My engineering hobby has turned into an expensive hobby. On Jan 17th 2022 the owner of the building where i rent removed the roof during the rainy season and lots of my equipment was ruined. The insurance company did not honor my claim calling my equipment business related. My insurance was not for... Read more »
What I see from your fact pattern is you failed to protect the items knowing the roof was being removed OR there was no notice the roof was being removed and that puts the LL on the hook. On your issue re: your insurance, you can argue until the cows come home and you may win??? But, so far, as...Read more »
California common law carries an implied warranty of merchantability and an implied warranty of fitness for a particular purpose. This means that, even if a company does not accept returns, they must still refund you if the product that you purchased was not "merchantable" -- which is...Read more »
Due to the Craigslist's dog seller advertised the puppy was a teacup maltese and the parents were not more than 5lbs, i paid $3000 when i picked up the puppy when she was about 2 months old. But the puppy started to grow bigger, even when i took her to the vet to get her second shot vaccines,... Read more »
Hard to say, but I'm sure you have options. Assuming you and the dog have bonded and love each other, I'd get a value for this one and assuming it is lower than $3,000.00 I'd demand the difference from the seller, if it were me.
I hired somebody to build the back part of my semi truck. The price agreed was $38,000. Throughout the past months I have sent him 30,000 for material & labor. The work was supposed to be completed 2 months ago. I learned that he has not bought material or started any work on it at all and that... Read more »
Sure, you can sue. Most attorneys are likely to want a similar amount of money, or at least five figures I'd guess, to get this started for you, and hope in the end to be able to get some money from the 'bad guy' towards atty fees, but, there are no guarantees. The BAR has initial...Read more »
I purchased a used motorcycle with cash from a dealership who claimed they were selling it on consignment. They gave me a title that had signatures already on it (as if it wasn't ever transfered last time it was sold) and the keys. I figured as long as i have the title im good but When I went...

Yep. You got scammed. I suggest you tell the dealership that they have 24 hours to refund your money or else you will file a complaint against their dealership license with the State of California. In addition to filing the complaint, you can also file against the dealer in the local small claims...Read more »
