Joseph A. Gangi's answer Look at section 317A.205, which currently provides: "The qualifications and method of election or appointment of directors may be imposed by or in the manner provided in the articles or bylaws, provided that directors must be natural persons and a majority of the directors must be adults." It is always good to assess the "why" and consider alternatives, such as a youth advisory board, as being a director carries a number of important responsibilities and youth already have other legal...
Salim U. Shaikh's answer In short, resigning from job would amount to over-reaction. As you may react that fearlessly then the best is if you proffer to sue your employer on disclosure of your illness not meant to be divulged to your co-workers or relatives. However, it would be questionable whether your cousins would serve as a sound witness or backout when required?
Better you immediately consult a couple of Attorney(ies) having expertise in Employment matter for quick action.
Barbara Berschler's answer If a mark is designated as a "registered" mark, that means it is registered in the USA with the United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) for goods (a "trademark") or for services (a "service mark"). Marks can take different forms, such as simply words; words using special layout, font or color; a design; a design with words, etc. For example, if you see Nike's swooch by itself, that design is a registered mark for the kinds of goods and services for which Nike registered it.

Lucas Wynne's answer Although you would be wading into a grey area, I would state that there are certainly ways for the original manufacturers to sue you in this scenario. I suggest becoming an authorized retailer/reseller rather than attempt to game the system. I would also add that becoming an authorized reseller would greatly increase your profit margin.
Peter Munsing's answer I'm unaware of any federal rule that says you, the creator has to do something. Many web services work off of templates. However you could have liability if you are viewed as enabling a business that is fraudulent. You may want to learn the business and reframe it to avoid issues.
Lucas Wynne's answer Attorneys cannot solicit business on the internet under the ethical rules that all attorneys must follow. However, you can contact any attorney you would like to work with via telephone or email. I suggest you contact an attorney immediately for a free consultation and to investigate this case further.
Charles Snyderman's answer Depending on the amount that is owed to you, it may be appropriate to contact an attorney. You use the word "company." Was it a sole proprietorship? If it was, the owner would still owe you the money. If it was a corporation or an LLC, it is possible that the company is still in existence even though this particular location closed its doors. Also, there are times when the owners can be held personally liable for the debts of their company. Again, if the amount owed to you justifies the expense...
Robert Douglas Kane Jr's answer I apologize, but it is impossible to answer this question without further information. You state that the bank "insisted" that you sell, but "made" you sign a voluntary surrender. You should properly defend yourself, and probably file counter claims against the bank. Feel free to call me for a free consultation.
