Peter D. Mlynek's answer Your friend's patent will only protect him/her from the competition within Mexico. If your friend did not patent it with the USPTO, anyone will be able to practice the invention in the US, but so nothing for your friend to sell. What does your friend want to sell?
Thomas A. Grossman's answer I don't understand your statement of "No Court," which I assume means there has been no Court date set. You need to go on the internet and find the nearest Court in your County. Then log in to that Court Website and look for a case number. If you received papers from the Court you probably have a case number. Be careful of the timelines, as you need to show up the hearing if the UD has been scheduled.
Ecleynne Mercy's answer The Georgia House just approved a bill that would allow medical marijuana oil to be sold to registered patients, giving them a legal way to obtain a drug that they’re already allowed to use.
Timur Akpinar's answer Yes, but these are generally very expensive cases to prosecute. They often involve a class of plaintiffs because the financial burden of analytical tests and expert testimony is beyond the capacity of an individual. You could contact a toxic tort-environmental attorney to discuss the viability of bringing such an action.
Timur Akpinar's answer These types of cases tend to be complex and expensive to prosecute. They can involve the testimony of costly scientific experts, and require analytical tests of drinking water and other resources that were subject to contamination. As a first step, you could consult with an environmental/toxic tort law firm.
Timur Akpinar's answer The situation you describe sounds like cancer clusters or disease clusters, where the incidence of disease, illness, cancer appears in certain geographic regions. As a starting point, you could consult with an attorney who handles environmental/toxic tort cases, meaning that the attorney would have experience in matters involving exposure to toxic substances.
Ali Shahrestani, Esq.'s answer The property owner (be that the city or a private owner) may be liable if the limbs fell due to improper maintenance. You can report this to your car or home insurance for them to pursue against the owner of the property. More details are necessary to provide a professional analysis of your issue. The best first step is an Initial Consultation with an Attorney such as myself. You can read more about me, my credentials, awards, honors, testimonials, and media appearances/ publications on my law...
Timur Akpinar's answer I wasn't certain of what the question was, but if you're researching case studies and case law on this issue, it could be a broad area because different jurisdictions could view the capacity in which the occupying was done differently.
Anthony Marvin Avery's answer Your downstream Landowners are the ones that might give you problems. If your pond stops the water flow of the creek beyond your property, then the adjoining Landowners may possibly sue you for Damages, an Injunction, Declaratory Judgment, etc. It may even be a benefit to the downstream Landowners by lessening erosion. Unless it is a navigable water, you should have no problem. But TCA 69-1-110 allows suit for damages for diverting a stream, without navigability being required. Common...
Ali Shahrestani, Esq.'s answer It depends on whether the tree was partially on the neighbor's property as well, whether there's an easement, or whether there's an imminent hazard caused by your tree that impacts the neighbor's property. More details are necessary to provide a professional analysis of your issue. The best first step is an Initial Consultation with an Attorney such as myself. You can read more about me, my credentials, awards, honors, testimonials, and media appearances/ publications on my law practice...
Kevin E. Flynn's answer First, it is not uncommon for one patent application that covers different inventions or different aspects of the same invention to end up being published multiple times as the applicant seeks different clusters of claims covering different claim scope. This happens all the time. I go out of my way to use different titles for the different applications but many patent attorneys do not.
Frequently, the applicant filed several clusters of claims in one application and the patent...
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.
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.
