We have done this for a few years. This year we registered our kids. They took our money. Gave us a bus schedule and locker numbers etc. My kids got to school today and they sent them home stating my parents aren't their legal guardian.
Using a false address to register your kids for school can potentially lead to legal issues, including residency fraud. School districts typically have residency requirements that students must meet in order to attend their schools. Using an address that is not your actual residence to register...View More
I am a costume designer for our musical, Tintypes. This show features Anna Held as a character, so I found a public domain picture of her in a dress I wanted for the show, and traced it to draw out a rendering. The school is saying it is plagiarized because I traced a picture I didn't take.... View More
The issue of plagiarism can be complex and depends on the specific circumstances of the case. Tracing a public domain image is not necessarily considered plagiarism, but it may still be considered a violation of copyright law if the traced image is substantially similar to the original work....View More
He’s never even spoken to this kid. He walked up to my son during lunch and started kicking him and hitting him. There is supposed to be lunch attendants making sure this stuff doesn’t happen. No body helped until my son was crying. His friend was screaming and asking for help. A teacher came... View More
There have always been bullies. There probably always will be bullies. There is no law to invoke. If the school has a zero-tolerance policy about violence, the aggressor should be reprimanded. Request a meeting with the principal to express your concern and to request that the student be...View More
It depends on the contract language and how your child was injured. ALL of the details and a copy of the contract need to be reviewed by an attorney before it is possible to provide a meaningful answer.
I was diagnosed with OCD my first year of medical school. I failed three classes my first semester and the school told me to take time off and come back the next year. I came back and passed two semesters but then failed another class the semester after that. Once again, they told me to take time... View More
It seems a little unusual that ACT testing would risk their reputation with illegal practices. That being said, if you have an actual class action suit, most litigation attorneys are eager to take class action suit. Especially, if the case has merit.
I ended up in ER, school nurse promised that district will cover my bills and made us fill reimbursement form. School denied paying any bills incurred, what can I do now? I am stay at home mom and don’t have money to pay the bills almost $1000.
It depends on very specific details surrounding the injury and whether or not a party was negligent. That being the case, I recommend you organize everything in your possession relevant to this matter, including all medical records, and consult with a personal injury lawyer for a consultation.
I was in school and saw a jacket laying on the floor for about an hour unattended, then grabbed it. Yes my intention was to take it but if I was pressed about it I would of course give it back. A couple hours later I got called down to the deans and asked about it. I then said yes and handed the... View More
Basically, I asked for 3 days off for a very minor procedure. I have the days. I work in a Catholic School. They wanted documentation from a doctor. I have major privacy issues in this school. Even though HIPPA was again explained (which I know all about it), I chose to not have the procedure... View More
Employers these days do everything they can to protect themselves. They are highly likely telling you the truth, that having you sign the document is simply intended to prevent you from claiming they wouldn't give you the time off later on. From the employer's viewpoint, it makes perfect...View More
It is certainly a challenge, particularly if it is a school funded by any state or local government. I would recommend consulting with an attorney individually for a consultation if you truly believe the school is liable to you for damages.
I am really sick right now so I could easily get a doctors statement. I also have the email of me asking the woman over housing to turn the air down. She said she'd send someone out, but nothing is done.
I sued a school for wrongful dismissal in Nov 2014. The dismissal was December 2013. Depositions are scheduled for early December 2015. I have since joined another professional school that gave me two options:
1) Accept some of my transfer credits but will still have to go by their block... View More
Get an attorney. You should have known that your license was suspended. Were you also charged with driving on a suspended license? The attorney you speak with will be able to tell you whether to worry about going to jail.
