You can go ahead and file. Just keep in mind that even if you are right, in a civil matter, a judgment comes down to a piece of paper that says Person A owes Person B x-amount of money. You still need to collect it through legal means.
Ouch. If you are a tenant, the landlord is likely to be liable. The landlord's insurance carrier may offer a settlement. You could take the settlement, or, if you can find an attorney to take the case, you could sue to see if you get more. If you hire an attorney, that might increase the...Read more »
Truth In Lending covers what must be disclosed by lenders to consumers. It's impossible to summarize what is a voluminous piece of legislation covering many different scenarios. If you have any doubts about what is presented to you by a car dealership, or any other lender, you should consult...Read more »
I lived there for 4 months but my son is violent, controlling and he didn't kick me out but it wasn't going to be good if I went back. I've asked for 3 days for my stuff, in person and text but still won't give it to me. In our town the cops don't arrest him and he does... Read more »
Yes. Just because it's a public event doesn't mean that there's an open-ended invite. If this person were tasked with running the beer tent, that is his or her domain - volunteer or not. So long as they didn't kick you out because of a protected status (e.g. race or gender), you...Read more »

No way of telling without knowing the hearing purpose and whether you are the petitioner or respondent. PPO proceedings are quasi-criminal, but with the exception of violations and some collateral consequences, the general civil procedures apply. If you are a respondent and you don't appear,...Read more »
I have garnished their bank account … it was $1.11 in it. Then I had a court order for the Wayne county sheriff seize property but this has not been successful either. How can I collect my judgment from someone or entity that refuses to cooperate?
You've asked the $64,000 question. You may have what can be called a judgment proof debtor. You have right now a piece of paper saying someone legally owes you money; that paper is just - a piece of paper - unless and until you can legally collect.
It's not entirely clear what you're asking. But, publicly obtainable images doesn't mean the images are in the public domain. And videos containing images that are not properly licensed, particularly ones produced with a commercial purpose, may create unnecessary liability and risk...Read more »
The potential employer paid for my ticket. I was informed at the check-in counter that I wasn't allowed to fly because I had received the wrong COVID test. I went through four rounds of interviews to get to the finalist stage. When they found out I couldn't fly, the organization... Read more »
Interesting facts...I think the damages would be a bit speculative: as you stated, you weren't guaranteed the position, and otherwise suffered no expense (other than time, etc.). And even if you were able to overcome that hurdle, I would think those damages would be mitigated by your current...Read more »
This client has had an outstanding bill since 2012. The client has made $5-$10 monthly (sometimes every other month) payments. At this rate is is going to be 12-13 years before recovering the total amount owed. Also when the client makes payment it is normally sent in to run a debit card which... Read more »
(1) It depends on whether or not the creditor is an entity. If so, small claims would likely be inappropriate and the entity attorney might be required to file in district court. If the creditor is an individual, small claims might be appropriate.
She's not on any bills or the rental agreement however we have lived together for a year now. She refused to move continues to tell me to "evict her" do I have to go through an official eviction processor is there another way?
If she is holding over after a 'legal' lease (whether or not her name is on anything the facts you present make her a 'legal' tenant on a month to month basis at the very least) you DO need to go through an eviction process if she refuses to move out voluntarily.
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 »
