It is nearly impossible to "prove" that you were pulled over illegally. Don't waste your time. You will irritate the court and harm your case. All police need is "reasonable suspicion" that a traffic offense could be occurring to pull you over for a brief investigation....Read more »

I would otherwise agree with what you are saying, however you stand now in a different position from your co-defendants because you are in default. Unfortunately, there are many procedural rules you must follow even if you are right. You would need to motion the court to set aside the default...Read more »
There is no procedure for the state to accept a transfer to it of a membership interest in an LLC. It should be possible to resign as a member. You should consult with an attorney who can review the entire situation, and the accountant may be useful for advice as to potential tax consequences or...Read more »
Business Court. I need an attorney for limited scope representation to dismiss an action by a LLC against a Member of the LLC. The question is whether the LLC in its own name may sue a Member without 90 day notice in advance and under what circumstances.
The Michigan LLC Act does not require advance notice prior to a suit against a member. Does the operating agreement for the LLC so provide? If not, and unless the LLC was formed in a jurisdiction that has an advance-notice requirement, there is no such requirement.
Are they now splitting? At some point, one person would need to "buy out" the other in exchange for a deed. That is when your grandson would need to negotiate. Legally, he will be between a rock and a hard place on the downpayment; it's legally a gift, with no obligation on the...Read more »
Let’s say some dealership is trying to be slick and use Facebook marketplace. They post a product for ridiculously cheap knowing that product is way more then the posted price. Could a consumer sue the dealer to get the product for the posted price?
As they say, "the devil is in the details". You would really need to ascertain what, if any, strings are attached to the offer, and whether you met all those conditions. Let's just say, for example, a store advertised new refrigerators for $100, but the conditions were that you had...Read more »
A Michigan attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. You should consider consulting with a Michigan attorney without further delay, as accidents involving public carriers could be subject to very short filing deadlines. According to your description, a vehicle struck...Read more »
A friend of mine and his wife split up. She left the dwelling they shared and moved in with family. The divorce is in the early stages currently. She left several of her belongings behind and said she'd return but hasn't. My friend is now wanting to move from the home as the lease they... Read more »
A Michigan attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. As a starting point, without regard to any applicable state-specific laws, you could try to diffuse the person's anger by providing assurances you ceased and will continue to cease to use his person, his...Read more »
I moved my family into a new house in Quincy, Michigan. A day after moving in, our water stops working. It turns out the well is dry, and the whole area is just bad for water. We spoke with multiple well contractors and learned that we can install a good well about 100 yards from the house at the... Read more »
Without seeing the closing paperwork and disclosures it is hard to say for sure. You need to have a local attorney look at the paperwork (did you use an attorney to review the closing? You SHOULD have!) to determine if anything like this can survive the closing.
I'm planning on moving out and I still have a lease on my apartment, my roommate wants to take on the full lease at a later time, until then am I responsible for the utilities in her name until then or just what's in my name? We have no agreement outside of the lease with the apartment... Read more »
Once we get the facts laid out, the answer will become clear.
If the lease is in your name and you move out with the expectation that the roommate is going to sublet from you, you and the roommate need to determine the terms of the sublet. If the roommate is going to "take on the full...Read more »
I had a verbal agreement (recorded) with a pest control company to remove a wasp nest with ONLY a non residual contact aerosol pesticide which would be used to kill the wasps quickly in their nest then the nest would be put in a bag and pulled down. I was assured that the chemical used would not... Read more »
You want to know if you have a meritorious case. A lawyer will require a lot more information to answer this question. The biggest problem with your potential case is the verbal contract. Your recording may or may not be admissible in court based on multiple factors. If it's not admissible,...Read more »

I'm involved in a case where a federal judge talked to plaintiff counsel in private during a hearing and never spoke to myself. I represent myself in the case. This infraction happened twice and after these meeting motions was granted against me. I have on record of last hearing where Judge... Read more »
No real answer here other than to say you really should be consulting with an attorney versed in federal court procedure, and at least consult with an attorney about helping you draft an appeal. It is unclear from your question how the judge spoke with plaintiff's counsel ex parte; it almost...Read more »
Probably a good first step would be to seek a PPO; immediate safety from stalking is paramount. Second, civil liability for the pictures will depend on the circumstances those pictures were taken. If they were taken during good times (i.e. some consent to the pictures is stated or implied),...Read more »
Generally you may record anything you can see or hear from whereever you are legally present. She if your neighbor can hear your son scream from her house, then I think she may record without your consent. Now, if she needed to place some fancy equipment (e.g. a bug) to hear, that's a...Read more »
