You can dress this up to look like a civil rights suit, but it will always be medical malpractice, and therefore subject to the caps on general damages of $250K. Additionally, you must articulate some definite and quantifiable damage you suffered as a direct and proximate result of the delay in...Read more »

Shouldn't have done that. At this point you just need to see if he brings it up and hope he doesn't. But if he does you need to get representation right away, and not discuss this matter with anyone else until you do, because the ramifications of this can be far reaching.
I live in the state of California and I am wondering how does the insurance company handle situations where a minor is injured due to a auto accident How does the insurance company go about compensating personal injury to the minor
Normally, You must name a Guardian Ad Litem and file and serve the case within 6 months if you are suing a state government agency and within two years for a regular accident case. In the case of minors, you have special statutes of limitations and you should hire an attorney to advise you.

You can probably collect the contents of the storage units, if that is all she has in California, with a small estate affidavit. For the assets in California, you need to consult a Florida probate attorney.

Since he survived your parents, his share will most likely go to his estate. It should not affect your parents' probate as you will distribute to his estate rather than him. However, someone will need to open probate for his estate to be able to receive the inheritance from your parents' probate.
An attorney to start probate but during probabte and not final yet my brother passed away. House is still in my parents name who gets the house now? My brother and parents had no will. My brother leaves behind a wife that they haven't been as husband and wife for 15 years and 2 children.
You should contact the probate attorney that was helping you or your brother handle this probate matter. He or she should be able to help you. If you don't have a probate attorney, now would be a really good time to hire one, because now you have two probates to manage.

Yes, based on your "Facts," you are correct. However, whether you are an "Exempt" employee may be in issue. There are a few requirements for exemption from overtime, as as a "Management" Employee, beyond the double mim. wage requirement.
Re "Exempt" status, see: Labor Code, § 515, et...Read more »
If it's true, your sister doesn't have to show you her power of attorney. If she uses it, she's only accountable to the principal, her mother. She's not required to use it. It's probably good that she has one, because it can help avoid the need for a probate conservatorship if your mom should...Read more »
A later date because the prosecutors did not have my criminal file with them and could not find it in their office does my guilty plea still stay or does it mean I have a chance to plead not guilty at the next arraignment?

There isn't really a statute of limitations for filing for probate in California. I have filed cases, for clients 20 years after the death occurred. However, if you have a will you are supposed to lodge it within 30 days and, in theory, there could be penalties for failing to do that although I...Read more »

Your rambling post raises many issues that require much more information before someone can give you reliable advice.
