In speaking with others, I find that watching the news causes me anxiety and extreme fear by the way it is delivered to us consumers. There is no way to know what is being reported is true. It can be argued that the reporting of the events surrounding police shootings are fueled by the media and... Read more »
NO. The news media are subject to certain immunities for the fair reporting of events that occur. You cannot sue them for that. You would have to show that they targeted you, personally, with the news coverage.
I share your pain about the reporting of current events, but you still...Read more »
I hired a web developer for my company's website. For the past 2 years he was the only one with access to the editing tools and the domain, until recently where we discovered accessing the site through a mobile device would redirect you to spam sites, sometimes pornographic, and we asked him...

It isn't clear from your question or the sites you posted this question to, exactly what it is that you want. First, you need a new developer to clean your site and correct these problems, close all backdoors and shut out the old developer. Is this criminal? Probably not, but I am not a...Read more »

My ex wife and I were having a private conversation and she recorded it without my knowledge. She then sent it to me pregnant wife to upset her by making me look bad because it was taken out of context. Do I have a case?
If you are talking about a guest staying with you, yes. A lot of leases do specify the limit to the amount of time a guest can stay. Usually it is a number of days in a given period of time, like "25 days per year" or "3 weeks every 6 months". Your first step needs to be to review your lease.

I was in my own room and she was drinking might had done coke to unsure. She started beating on my bedroom door and I opened it to see whats going on. She... Read more »
Defend yourself against what? You said the officers left without arresting you, and I assume you mean they also did not give you any notice to appear in court. Also, from your description, it does not sound like the type of police case where they will be in on-going investigation to determine if...Read more »
I've occupied a unit in a condo complex for the past 2 years. The building has known issues with cable wiring. Xfinity provided us with equipment for self installation, however our internet connection continued to fail after many attempts by service techs to repair. They finally told us that... Read more »
Nobody is required to furnish internet access, unless the requirement is specifically mentioned in the lease. You have some options, I think: pay to upgrade the condo's cabling; move; or see if you can access the internet via satellite or some other wireless method of connecting to the...Read more »
You are going to need to have permission from the copyright owner to make your derivative work. You may want to work through an attorney who could act as intermediary between you and the copyright owner to pitch your concept.

Your post includes Personal Injury as a category, but there did not appear to be any injury-related issues in the brief description. In terms of the discrepancies with belongings you describe, it might be helpful for an attorney to know more information - were these discrepancies in connection with...Read more »
The moratorium said those who dont have the virus but are late will not be at risk of eviction but I've just paid my rent 8 hours late and my landlord is still attempting to follow thru on the 72hr notice. It also seems to me this prop mgmt company is predatory. I fell down the steep crooked... Read more »
A landlord does not have to accept rent paid after a 72 hr deadline and normally can proceed to evict if they wish. Currently however no court in Oregon is processing or enforcing residential landlord-tenant cases so the landlord can do little at the moment to enforce rent payments. If they DO...Read more »
Been dealing with a mechanic about 3 weeks. Ordered a part I needed a week ago told me it would be in within the next week. Asked him about when it would be put in this week. And now hes told me another week out, I decided to go somewhere else and now he wants to charge 20% of the price of... Read more »
It's hard to say but unless he promised you in writing a date by which he would have your car fixed I think you are being unreasonable and you should either pay for the cost of returning the part which he only ordered for you or just let him finish the job and have him guarantee in writing...Read more »

Usually oral agreements would be considered to be legally binding if the terms can be sufficiently proven. The statute of limitations can be different if an agreement is not in writing. While it's possible that a judge might for some reason think a text message doesn't qualify as a...Read more »
It doesn't appear to be a matter that an attorney would be willing to handle on a contingency basis, whether based on invasion of privacy, or similar tort theories. You could consult with a Washington attorney who deals with privacy-based torts to ask their opinion. Good luck
Before I joined my company, they signed a multi-year service agreement with an Internet Service Provider that I think we should no longer use. When looking at the early termination terms, we would owe over $7,000 for the remaining 23 months. So, in an effort to not cancel service but change... Read more »
