All my belongings still remain bec I can't get help to move due to State quarantine. Stuck sleeping in my car instead of my apt with my belongings. Landlord can't rent to anyone else during Covid-19 State of Emergency anyways. ***I'm located in Saratoga County, not NYC
You should first contact the landlord. If that doesn't work you can go to the local courts (I am not sure what Court in Saratoga handles housing matters) and file an order to show cause requesting post eviction relief. It is 100% up to the judge whether to let you re-enter.
It could be in more than one place under NYS laws, NYS Constitution, executive orders, emergency legislation emerging as the crisis evolves, or other powers granted or reserved to the offices of all governors in times of emergency. Good luck
It could depend on the context. If the organization alleged that such use adversely impacted its reputation or other interests, it could object to the use or bring legal action. There's no way to predict what an organization would do. One option is to consult with an attorney familiar with the...Read more »
This sounds like something that an employment attorney might be more likely to know than attorneys in the posted categories - if there is a possibility the issue is addressed in a collective bargaining agreement or other employment-related contract. Municipal or administrative laws might not go...Read more »
I am a County Employee. As part of our collective bargaining agreement, the county requires us to attend mandatory training on our own time. My question is- can FLSA / Labor Law be negotiated away in a collective bargaining agreement?
I am currently on PTR and my lawyer is recommending a safety valve meeting. I only have a misdemeanor poss. In the 7th on my record and wpuld like to know since I only have less then 60 days in jail on that charge, will I have the option to do 0-6 months in jail since I only have 1 Point?
You won't get denied just because you don't have an attorney, but you're much more likely to be successful if you have one. That's because an attorney will know what records you need and will argue why you should be considered disabled. However, you will need to get an attorney as soon as the...Read more »
I pawned my stereo for $125 with the understanding that I would be back to pick it up within 7 days. I called on the 4 day and was told it got sold a few days prior. He not only broke out deal, but he broke state law by selling the item before the 5 day minimum wait time. I have a witness to the... Read more »
The amount of money involved is way too small to be of interest to most lawyers. FYI, the law is not designed to solve every little problem that comes your way during this lifetime; the Latin phrase for this rule is "De minimus non curat lex."
Wondering of rights as resident. Called town and being told keep kids out of road. Not addressing the law breaking of residents. Put slow down structure at foot of driveway. What else can I do to stop a child from being killed. What are the children's rights.
Petition the local city council or whatever form of government you have for placement of a speed limit sign etc. However kids should not be riding bikes on roadways unless they are fully competent, have helmets on etc. We lived on a road like that and that's one of the reasons we moved--no way...Read more »
I was told (not in writing) that I would be getting two $2 raises ($16 to $18 to $20 per hour), but it's been over two years and they never gave me either raise. What law for NYC or NYS says this is not allowed, and where can I find that law to show my employer?

Child protection came and looked around and said nothing seemed like it was unsafe . How can a judge just take my grandson... Read more »
Under some circumstances, the answer is "yes" - but only with respect to child support, income taxes, criminal restitution, or Social Security overpayments. Give them a call and ask them about it - they'll at least be able to let you know to whom the debt is owed. There have been circumstances...Read more »
We moved here 2 months ago and our kids are doing great in schools. We applied for the vaccine exemptions as we have the last 9 years and we were denied because the school district claims we weren't sincere in our religious beliefs. The system in place to appeal seems extremely legalistic. It feels... Read more »
It depends on the jurisdiction, but pleading guilty could affect immigration status and any judge will tell this to a defendant prior to a plea. In general, these cases are criminal if the person has a “guilty mind” meaning that they knew the license and our registration was expired; if they...Read more »
I am very sorry to hear your are going through this.
To answer your question, yes, you can most certainly send a letter to the judge and the district attorney. In fact, you could even call the district attorney, or the assistant district attorney assigned to the case, and ask to meet with...Read more »
