Terrence H Thorgaard's answer Who is trying to enforce the contract? The party who offered the contract (including the "must accept by" language) can probably enforce it. The other party probably could not unless that party did something, after acceptance, to ratify the contract.
Richard Sternberg's answer There seems to be a widespread belief that the paper you signed, often called the purchase agreement or the sales agreement or the contract, is irrelevant because they are all the same. They are not. Further, there is appears to be a widespread belief that an interview to determine all of the facts isn’t needed, because the only relevant facts are the ones clients are focused on when they think they are in trouble. That is also false. Finally, there seems to be a widespread belief that...
Griffin Klema's answer That's a complex situation. Without any formal company, you may both be operating under what is called a general partnership (but this should be addressed more conclusively by a Georgia lawyer). Even aside from the trade secret contract, to avoid incurring liability by your partner, I strongly recommend clarifying the relationship between you through some formal written instrument. As far as being "forced" to sign a document, generally no, you never have to sign anything, but you may have some...
Griffin Klema's answer The fact that the customer was paid money by the insurance company doesn't really affect your rights to collect payment for services you rendered. Because the services were made on a property, you may be able to file a lien (a Florida construction lawyer may be able to answer that specific question). Otherwise you could file suit against the customer to enforce the contract. A good trial attorney with experience in business contracts should be able to help. Good luck!
Robert Lopez's answer Hi, the permits/licenses you will need depend on where you are going to "cook" your product as well as where you are going to sell your food. Since you are planning on making your jerky in unincorporated San Bernardino, CA, you should start with the County of San Bernardino. Their website pages that deal with food preparation is: The best place to start out is http://wp.sbcounty.gov/dph/programs/ehs/applications/. If you are serving the food, you should also check out:...
Thomas Briody's answer If you truly lost the item, then you have most likely not committed a crime. However, you are responsible for the loss, and you will have to reimburse the person who loaned you the camera. That means you are most likely going to have to pay the value of the camera back.
Thomas. R. Morris' answer You have not provided enough facts for me to be able to determine whether you have a basis to sue anyone. However, if you claim that the lease was breached by the landlord, your claim would be against the landlord, whom your refer to as "owner LLC", and not against any of the landlord's agents, such as the "management corp."
Timur Akpinar's answer One option might be to present the check to a bank or financial institution, since you say it was declined by a merchant. Another option might be to contact the law firm that handled the class action lawsuit to inquire if other plaintiffs experienced problems with their checks.
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer The phrase "irrevocable license" is an oxymoron. If it's non revocable it's not a license but an easement (or other interest in the land). Read the terms of the license and confer with an attorney to see how to cancel it.
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer As I understand what you are asking, you have a contract to purchase the truck, as well as the trailer. The sellers cannot produce a document of title for the trailer. If so, the sellers are in breach of the contract.
Thomas A. Grossman's answer I do not know much about criminal law, but I would think that once your son went to jail, you should get the rest of the bond money because the purpose of a bail bond is to keep someone from disappearing out of state. Since your son is now in jail, I think you get the balance of the bail. Normally, bail is set at 10%. Hope that helps.
H. Scott Aalsberg Esq.'s answer Unfortunately you don't have many options, if you don't sign the new lease you can be evicted, the landlord does not have to give you a month to month lease, but check with your town.
Gerald Barry Dorfman's answer You may be able to file a Qui Tam action. Depending on the ultimate amounts recovered, some of these can be quite valuable. Look for attorneys who are familiar with the requirements for these types of cases, and have one or more consultations to learn more.
