My mother passed away August two years ago. She had a house but was the only name on the deed. The estate was turned over by the state to a lawyer to be the executor and the house was sold in Sherriff's sale. There was no money in the estate. Her homeowner association is trying to sue my...

Probably not, but if they try it is IMPORTANT that you defend yourself! Don't let court notices go unanswered, and be sure you have an attorney on board who can review the WHOLE situation to insure there isn't some important fact that would create liability that we are missing here!
In 2015, friends and I started a business. We allocated shares, and set up a vesting schedule. In 2016, we decided to allow the business license (Delaware) to lapse and operate with funds from an existing LLC business I own, however, the other partners do not benefit from the LLC business....

More information is needed to give you more detailed advice, but you have two basic options, revive the DE entity and sell the business or document the transfer of the business to the LLC and have it sell the business. The devil will be in the details. I would recommend you sell the assets of the...Read more »
Possibly. Did you take the photo and create the meme? If not, someone else probably had a copyright interest in the image. If you use it without their permission or a valid license, you could be liable for copyright infringement. Making money is not a requirement for copyright infringement....Read more »
I was at a red light, in the right turn lane. My turn signal was on, and I waited for an opportunity to turn right onto the road. Assuming the opening was large enough, I made the turn. I was t-boned on the side of my door within 10 seconds after. I understand that this is my fault, but could the... Read more »

Suggest you contact a member of the Delaware Ass'n for Justice like Thomas Crumplar--you can tell him I suggested you call. Malpractice cases are tough, and a bad result doesn't mean you have a case--even a horrible result. But you should check with Mr. Crumplar. If he can't help you try Jim...Read more »
It is unclear what exactly you are asking, but I'm going to say 'yes' because regardless of how you interpret this you can leave assets to children, grandchildren, children AND grandchildren, or to Children first and then to grandchildren should something happen to the children.
Knowing it is often said that the USA is a nation of laws, and knowing we have a constitution, I am wondering; if there was an official act, decision or proclamation that plainly says that the Articles of Confederation are invalidated? If not, do we Americans just pretend the Articles no longer... Read more »
The very terms of the Constitution, ratified by 11 of the original 13 colonies, replaced the terms of the Articles. For example, Article 5 of the Articles of Confederation sets out the make-up of Congress, while Article 1 of the Constitution sets out a new, different way to make up Congress. The...Read more »
If you've been served with a judgment to that effect (or were in present in court when the judge pronounced his judgment), you are subject to that order or judgment. If you fail to move out, the next step will be to serve you with a citation for contempt of court, which will order you to appear and...Read more »
Sometimes yes, sometimes no. It's going to depend on a ton of factors, including what they knew when they conducted the search, whether you were the person who rented the hotel room, whether you're on probation, whether others were in the room, and the presence or absence of exigent circumstances...Read more »
It's going to depend on whether he has other felonies on his record (no matter what state they're from), and what kinds of felonies they are. He is most likely looking at any/all of the following charges: firearm by person prohibited (x2), carrying a concealed deadly weapon ("CCDW") (x2), and...Read more »
Can a minority shareholder, a privately held company, be liable to the individual whose Company was majority shareholder - in a Delaware LLC that has been sold?

Anyone can sue anyone if you pay the filing fee. Your question is way too vague. Yes, the operating agreement governs. So does what the claim even is, which you have not stated. Thus, if your real question is the success of such a claim, no one could know based on your post.
Does he want to stir up a counterclaim? If he has collision, run it through that and let them be the bad guys. Note--if it's 4 lanes, and he was doing speed limit, should have picked up moving something or other out there, slowed down, may have had chance to avoid. I'd advise to let it go. So far...Read more »
Well, unless you were subjected to interrogation without benefit of counsel, or otherwise prejudiced, your only recourse MAY be a civil tort claim. Consult a criminal defense attorney on the criminal case, though.
