Present him with a written demand (with a reasonable deadline) to repair the vehicle. Express that you will be taking the vehicle elsewhere if he fails to comply and will be suing him for the cost (and perhaps more.) A letter from an attorney would carry more weight and may be affordable.... Read more »

The seller may not have a duty to disclose everything, but misrepresenting the overall condition may be enough for you to recoup some of your money. It will come down to the specific details. What was said and written? Is it something that the seller should have known about? It may be worth having... Read more »

You should speak directly with an attorney about these issues. On first reading, it doesn't sound as if you would have any legal prohibition on owning or possessing a firearm, but you don't want to put yourself in a bad situation. A legal forum is no substitute for speaking directly... Read more »
Negligence on the behalf of the employee they processed paperwork without consent after being told I did not want to proceed with the vehicle, there was a ticket issued as well in another state for the car due to being registered under my name

If a dealership falsely registered a car in your name you can sue. I do not know if you will be successful or if it's even worth it. Why would a dealership falsely register a car in your? What have you suffered in damages ($) ?
answered on Mar 10, 2023
There isn't really a question here. Plus it is not a products liability issue. I'd suggest reaching out to some consumer protection folks directly to deal with this issue.

What are your damages? As a general rule, without damages lawsuits aren't worth the time and effort they take.

This started back in July of this year. We went to the photographers address and did the photo shoot. It took her close to a month to send me proofs to select which photos I liked.

Do I have any rights? I live in Minnesota and the coaching program is located in California. I am 62 years old.

A Minnesota attorney (and possibly a California attorney, depending on how the agreement is drafted) could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks.
Do you have rights? It could depend on how the contract was written. COVID has introduced some new territory in terms of how... Read more »
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 »

The county had another company haul in gravel and pile it up on my personal lots and I knew nothing about it and now they want to lay claim to it

A Minnesota attorney could advise in the best manner, but your question remains open for three weeks. As a general rule in virtually any jurisdiction, the homeowner does not get a windfall from the mistake of the county or its contractor in such a situation. Most anywhere, the gravel would be...

answered on Jun 5, 2019
As I mentioned in my other answer to your similar question, that case would be weaker than the normal case where the police officer did observe driving, operating or control of a motor vehicle. In addition, it's common for people to drink at home, after driving. That is a defense to a DWI... Read more »

Assuming I had 255k of taxable income, but they cleaned me out is there a possible law suit
answered on Jun 6, 2018
The IRS has the right to file what is called an SFR - substitute for return on your behalf. If they see a substantial amount of income that was reported to them from third-parties, they will likely conduct an audit of your account and force the preparation of a tax return. Once there is an... Read more »

You can withdraw from your 401k anytime, in fact, you should have an amount that is required to be distributed from the plan once you have reached 70 1/2. The distribution will be taxable to you upon distribution, but once you’re of age it will not be a early distribution and therefore won’t... Read more »
The repair shop claims to have locked my vehicle, but my vehicle has no evidence of being broken into. Which makes me think whoever had broken into the vehicle must had access to my vehicles keys OR the repair shop failed to lock my vehicle.
answered on Feb 19, 2018
It depends on the contract that you signed with the repair shop. Oftentimes, there is a disclaimer that removes any liability from the repair shop for lost or stolen items. I would take a look at that and see what it says. That should then drive your future approach.
Took my car for a wash to a place where the employees drive it thru the wash. Went home after the wash and noticed that there is a $300 damage. We called the place and told them about it and now they’re saying that Bc we left, they can’t do anything about it. What can we do about this?
answered on Nov 29, 2017
I'd suggest reading the document a police officer gave you. If it directs you to respond in some way, then I'd suggest doing so. What I think of as a written warning from a police officer is not a traffic citation, and so is not a violation charge and will not led to a conviction that... Read more »
