Timur Akpinar's answer It could depend on what the government is pursuing the person for/or what the government has taken action against the person in the past for, and whether those things are relevant to, or directly/indirectly connected to the suit. A consultation with a Washington attorney who had additional facts and details could help answer the question more meaningfully.
Nina Mironenko's answer When you lease the there is a warranty that the premises are "habitable", which your house is not given the black mold. Contact the landlord (with the correct notice as per your lease) advising that the premises are not habitable due to the black mold. If he refuses to return your money ( I would also demand broker's fee if there was one) you must go into landlord tenant court.
Timur Akpinar's answer I do not practice in Texas, but your question remains open for four weeks. Homeowner policies can have exclusions for environmental claims, and auto policies could limit their coverage to matters related to the use and operation of a motor vehicle. You could show your policies to a Texas attorney and ask their opinion as to the limitations of coverage.
Brent T. Geers' answer You can, of course, sue, but I'm not sure what that will get you. You'd need to prove damages to substantiate a monetary value. Assuming the best-and most likely scenario: this was a housekeeping error, and whomever slept in the bed before you was an ordinary and clean person, I'm not sure what reasonable damages you'd be able to say you incurred.
That being said, there is no law that requires a Seller to install a whole house reverse osmosis system to fix well water issues, though the contract may speak to issues of repair and condition. It is not uncommon to treat well water by a water filtration system that covers the house and perhaps a single reverse osmosis system under the kitchen sink. Alternatively, if the lead is coming from certain...
Timur Akpinar's answer I don’t practice in Washington, but your question remains open for a month. It might be best for you to check with a Washington state environmental attorney. There aren’t details to go on here, but the government’s lawsuit could be an injunction. An attorney would be able to advise you of your individual remedies in light of the nature of the government’s lawsuit.
Donald C Eby's answer You may have a legitimate Breach of Contract claim against your contractor and you have a damages claim against him. You should contact an attorney to schedule a consultation so that the facts can be closely reviewed and you can get a clear picture of your rights, options, and possible results.
Timur Akpinar's answer These types of cases could be complex, because of the level of scientific and medical expertise required. If you yourself are contemplating legal action, a consultation with an attorney could enable you to learn, at the very least, time tables, deadlines, statutes of limitations, and notices of claim requirements within which you must act to preserve your legal rights. There is an organization called the Fluoride Action Network. Their website posts resources about Fluoride. I am not familiar...
Richard Paul Zaretsky's answer Look at your lease. Does it say the landlord is supplying a working a/c system? Florida statutes do not provide that the landlord must provide air conditioning, even if it is already installed on the property.
So if the lease provides that the landlord will provide air conditioning, then not getting it fixed in a reasonable amount of time could be a breach of lease entitling you to at least a reduction in rent.
But again - look to the lease. If there is air conditioning...
Joseph Jaap's answer You could file for a court injunction if the regulatory and administrative process approves the cutting. The court would then review the process used to approve it. Use the Find a Lawyer tab to retain an attorney who practices in environmental law and litigation against government agencies.
If anything, the bigger issue is working out possible areas of liability such as if someone is injured while hiking or while engaged in any of the survivalist activities. You would probably want to create a liability waiver for all participants to be aware of the risks associated with the activity; requirements to follow all of your instructions including not wander off; and explain any critical...
