I developed a severe gambling addiction while taking Mirapex long-term. It stopped after I quit taking the drug. This has placed me on the brink of bankruptcy. Is this a valid basis for suing the manufacturer? Do the existence of prior class action lawsuits to which I was not a party prevent me... Read more »
A Michigan attorney could answer best, but your question remains open for a week. As a GENERAL matter, It seems like it would be a difficult case to establish.

I also don't see any citation which makes authorizing a sexually active youth to take some condoms, after being directly asked by same. There is no age limit on condoms. Why is this case posted publicly without permission?
My elderly father's wife suffers from addiction (refuses treatment) and abuses him. I have proof. He would not technically be considered a vulnerable adult but one could argue he is as he allows it to continue. She needs a guardian and court-mandated treatment. I cannot allow this to continue...

Let’s say some dealership is trying to be slick and use Facebook marketplace. They post a product for ridiculously cheap knowing that product is way more then the posted price. Could a consumer sue the dealer to get the product for the posted price?
As they say, "the devil is in the details". You would really need to ascertain what, if any, strings are attached to the offer, and whether you met all those conditions. Let's just say, for example, a store advertised new refrigerators for $100, but the conditions were that you had...Read more »
A judge may opine about evidence, facts, and testimony properly presented. Importantly, that means they can determine one witness's "truth" may be more truthful than another witness; that's called credibility. If there is reason to believe a statement, I'm not sure what...Read more »

Child support would end; the child would be an heir and so would be entitled to at least some portion of your ex's estate. But if there is nothing in the estate, then it ends there.
