Both my brand new Inspiron and my really old hand-me-down HP have been exchanged at the CPU part, the base. I know there is an FBI investigation, now they can't find anything so they're setting me up to fail because I found accidentally SEC stuff relative to assets (A Huge Number of... Read more »
I am the party (individual) initiating the action against another individual who operates a business. I have already submitted a statement of claim which was accepted and the process has moved forward. Now I need to submit a pleading and I'm pretty lost.
There are a mountain of various types of pleadings and a lawyer would need to know what you are trying to achieve or if you have been ordered by the court to submit a pleading, then the wording of the pleading. This site is not meant to teach someone how to proceed pro se with litigation. It is...Read more »

In Florida, are there any real-world cases (not only in theory) that a contract was considered non-binding because of a minor deviation in a company name? For example, the articles of incorporation says ABC, Inc. but some of the contracts say ABC Incorporated. Was there ever a time when there was a... Read more »
The issue is whether, at the outset, there was a meeting of the minds on who the parties are and the material terms of agreement. If you have that, minor technicalities such as you mention likely would be deemed to be irrelevant.
We are a small software company in Florida. We are planning to use the fictitious name as heading in the End User License Agreement (EULA) instead of the legal company name, but the legal company name is mentioned in the body of the agreement, for example, "Company A doing business as XYZ...

Not enough information but enough to see you need an attorney to review the contract and the events leading up to entering into the contract.

HOAs do not have a statutory duty to answer questions from homeowners, but in the case of simple questions like this, it sends up a red flag for me that the HOA is not being transparent.
