Terrence H Thorgaard's answer If you have set your work computer (which belongs, presumably, to your employer) to be able to access your email without the need for inputting a password, yes: you have given the employer implicit permission.
William N. Sosis' answer You'll need to immediately consult with an attorney. You'll be interviewed and your case will be thoroughly reviewed. An attorney can then file the appropriate papers on your behalf but only after gathering all the necessary facts and evidence. You should contact an attorney willing to give you a free consultation.
Aubrey Claudius Galloway's answer That’s a general question and it depends largely on the individual circumstances, but here is my shot; it is likely not illegal nor a civil tort to generally “suggest “X” should be raped”.
The second statement has a better chance being viable in civil court, under the theory of slander. Spreading the rumor the woman was “asking to be raped” online, assuming it is not true, is defamation and a winning law suit could result.
William John Light's answer Your personal data, in all likelihood, belongs to Sony. As a result, you are asking if there is a way to force Sony to delete its own property, which you consented to it giving to it. I doubt that is possible.
Cary B. Hall's answer Typically, fraudulent use of another's bank account without his/her permission could carry charges like: forgery; access device fraud; identity theft; theft by unlawful taking; theft by deception; and/or receiving stolen property. The grading of the offenses (felony, misdemeanor, etc.) depends on the amount of money taken -- although forgery is usually a felony anyway.
Andrew Zulieve Esq's answer Your question is a common one, and I typically advise any client who asks it as follows. If you have to ask an attorney that question, you probably realize that your proposal to adopt a domain name incorporating another's domain name or trademark is a potentially risky one. Because of this, I typically urge a client to reconsider that approach. In any event, before you decide one way or another, you should discuss it with an experience attorney in that area of law.
Tina El Fadel's answer This is a crime and you should report it to the police. Florida is a two person consent state, it is a felony for someone to record another without their consent. Further, yes, this is an invasion of privacy as it was an electronic intrusion into a person's private quarters and possibly a public disclosure of private facts which a reasonable person would find offensive.
Gerald Barry Dorfman's answer If there are grounds to file suit, a lawsuit can be filed, naming "Doe" defendants. With the proper foundation, a subpoena can be served on the social media company to reveal the account holder's information. Then the account holder can be added into the lawsuit. Note, a corporation can not appear pro per, but must be represented by an attorney.
Randi Sirlin's answer The Father is not being very smart. The Court will not look kindly at his behavior. If I were you, I would be taking pictures of all social media that disparages you and making sure, if your case goes to court, that the judge sees the pictures.
I advise my own clients to stop using any social media while I represent them.
If you need further assistance, I recommend contacting an experienced family law attorney.
Jason Brooks' answer The blog owner (or whomever wrote the content) is still the copyright holder for that content, even if it’s no longer being exhibited online. To reuse it for commercial purposes you’d need permission from the owner. You are however, permitted to repost that content and cite the original source, so long as you’re not makin commmercial use of it.
John Hyland Barrett III's answer This is a scam. I heard about this exact thing on the radio the other day. They will ask you for money to make it go away. Rest assured no actual law enforcement officer would contact you this way. Just ignore it.
Andrew S. Tabashneck's answer In New York, there are a number of harassment laws. Generally such laws prohibit a wide array of activities intended to harass, annoy, threaten, or alarm people.
If this 19 year old is threatening and engaging in behavior that would cause a reasonable person to feel annoyed, then at the very least, one of the less serious charges of harassment would apply. It is difficult to determine which level of harassment applies to this situation because of the lack of facts. For instance,...
H. Scott Aalsberg Esq.'s answer Maybe, more information would be needed, but the safe rule is to always say no see backpage. Anything else more information would be needed and expect to pay for the advise for specific information.
