Joseph Jaap's answer Yes, you can sue him. Use the Find a Lawyer tab and retain a local attorney to review the facts and discuss your options. The attorney can advise if it would be cost-effective to sue him. But even if you sue, and win, he might not have any money to be able to repay you.
Peter N. Munsing's answer Assuming it's a written contract you have 4 years. Runs from the date they breach the contract. However if the contract was signed two years ago you're well within the period.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer Just because your landlord has "loose your file" does not mean you do jot have to continue paying rent. And just because your lease says "0 occupancy" and has "missing data" does not mean you do not have to pay rent either.
"Generally, yes, because of the Full Faith and Credit Clause of the Constitution of the United States--which requires all states in the union honor the judgments of all other states. However, as noted in Mr. Eisenberg's correct answer, each state can require adherence to their own relevant procedural laws, as long as the state law does not transgress the Full faith and Credit clause."
Ronald J. Eisenberg's answer It depends. Was the judgment issued through a Missouri court or a Kansas court? If it was a Kansas judgment, was the Missouri attorney counsel of record in the case? If it was a Kansas judgment, has it been registered here in Missouri? If it was a Missouri judgment, then a garnishment may be issued through the Missouri court and served on the garnishee in Missouri.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer To the best of my knowledge there is no answer to this question, in part because it is not a legal question. Leave the window open a few days to see if your cat will come back home.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer If you undertake this plan without having the input of at least two lawyers you will probably regret it. This situation is one that brings to mind the ancient warning: "If it looks too good to be true, it probably isn't."
Jason Brooks' answer Absent a written agreement or other express understanding that the developer would be the owner of the code upon its creation (i.e. some type of work-for-hire language) then you have a good basis for claiming that ownership in the code never exchanged hands because you have not been compensated for your services. Therefore you are within your rights to deny them further use of your copyrighted material unless and until payment is rendered. With that said, to the extend that the code includes...
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer This free legal advice forum is intended to help consumers better understand common legal terms and to explain general legal principals and procedures to non-lawyers interested in understanding more about the law. This forum is not the place to seek free legal representation in ongoing cases, nor is it the place to ask complicated questions about specific situations requiring significant amounts of legal work. People in need of specific legal assistance should use the free resources available...
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer All of your questions should be answered in the original purchase documents controlling all the terms of ownership, maintenance, assessments and all other terms and conditions. Why not hire a lawyer to review everything and help you convince the owners of the retirement community to speed up their efforts to sell the unoccupied apartment.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer Not unless the unit owner gives the management company the power to represent them. Most management companies are smart enough NOT to accept a POA from a unit owner because of the inherent conflict of interest in such a relationship.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer IMO, the best thing you can do is to find some way to bury the hatchet with your roommate--because the landlord probably does not care who stays where as long as they pay their rent on time. No online lawyer can help you either.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer If you are the seller and intentionally breach the written contract you signed==depending upon the amount of money involved and the tenacity of the buyers--you may see a lawsuit seeking specific performance an/or consequential damages caused by the intentional breach. The seller may also have to pay attorney fees and costs if the contract provides for prevailing party fees and costs.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer Unless you provide much more information about the business and everything gone before between you and the person who apparently shut you out of the business you started you will not get many answers on this forum.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer Contacting "local authorities" will probably do no good because this is clearly a family business matter. And unless you can show some actual damages the courts will also be hesitant to get involved. Finally, unless the actual amount of money involved is very substantial it is likely that the cost of litigation would make it not worthwhile to sue. However, since only you can answer these fundamental questions, you should contact an experienced business lawyer to help you decide what you want to...
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer The answer to this question depends upon the specific wording in your written lease regarding the purpose of the $2,200 deposit you made when you first rented the house. If the written lease says the deposit was a security deposit to be used to cover any damage to the property you are out of luck.
