In speaking with others, I find that watching the news causes me anxiety and extreme fear by the way it is delivered to us consumers. There is no way to know what is being reported is true. It can be argued that the reporting of the events surrounding police shootings are fueled by the media and... Read more »
NO. The news media are subject to certain immunities for the fair reporting of events that occur. You cannot sue them for that. You would have to show that they targeted you, personally, with the news coverage.
I share your pain about the reporting of current events, but you still...Read more »
A Minnesota attorney could advise in the best manner, but your question remains open for three weeks. As a general rule in virtually any jurisdiction, the homeowner does not get a windfall from the mistake of the county or its contractor in such a situation. Most anywhere, the gravel would be...Read more »
That mind you .didn't pull me over .or see me driving,to come to my house a half hour later and give me a DUI and tow my car right out of the driveway,no keys in vehical or on me ,also revockef my lisence for refusel,when he got my numbers reading were high but I still wasn't driving.
As I mentioned in my other answer to your similar question, that case would be weaker than the normal case where the police officer did observe driving, operating or control of a motor vehicle. In addition, it's common for people to drink at home, after driving. That is a defense to a DWI...Read more »
I got a promo code from amazon for $100 off a monitor on a link they provided. There are 4 monitors shown but one of the monitors shown isn't one that promo actually works on because it isnt sold directly through amazon. Amazons model cost more and after the rebate is applied is only actually... Read more »
The IRS has the right to file what is called an SFR - substitute for return on your behalf. If they see a substantial amount of income that was reported to them from third-parties, they will likely conduct an audit of your account and force the preparation of a tax return. Once there is an...Read more »
You can withdraw from your 401k anytime, in fact, you should have an amount that is required to be distributed from the plan once you have reached 70 1/2. The distribution will be taxable to you upon distribution, but once you’re of age it will not be a early distribution and therefore won’t...Read more »
The repair shop claims to have locked my vehicle, but my vehicle has no evidence of being broken into. Which makes me think whoever had broken into the vehicle must had access to my vehicles keys OR the repair shop failed to lock my vehicle.
It depends on the contract that you signed with the repair shop. Oftentimes, there is a disclaimer that removes any liability from the repair shop for lost or stolen items. I would take a look at that and see what it says. That should then drive your future approach.
Took my car for a wash to a place where the employees drive it thru the wash. Went home after the wash and noticed that there is a $300 damage. We called the place and told them about it and now they’re saying that Bc we left, they can’t do anything about it. What can we do about this?
I'd suggest reading the document a police officer gave you. If it directs you to respond in some way, then I'd suggest doing so. What I think of as a written warning from a police officer is not a traffic citation, and so is not a violation charge and will not led to a conviction that...Read more »
We run a thrift store and have proper bathrooms for the staff but are we legally required to provide a bathroom to the public? I know we may be for specific customers with documented conditions such as Krohn's and Irritable Bowel Syndrome but do we need to have bathrooms available to all... Read more »
As an LLC with 2 employees, if I were to call customers--with respect to the dNC list-- and have a website to sell or resell consumer electronics at a low initial investment but higher profit margin via recurring payments over 6-15 months like a laptop or tablet for example charging the consumer 12...

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...Read more »
From your answer it seems the contract was prepared by the seller. Since you have the goods you are acting in accordance with the contract and so are they. That is a manifestation of mutual assent to the terms. So signatures are not needed (although that is certainly not the best ordinary course...Read more »
I have heard that if I create a web page for a licensed business, say an auto repair business or a limo service I must either have a license for that industry OR I must have a disclaimer saying "This is a third party webpage" otherwise I can get fined by some federal agency. Is this true... Read more »
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.
there are no illegal actions alleged in this event on my part. the state patrol found it necessary to have car towed "without regard for the owners expense" as state patrol proper procedure states. car was in ditch locked and unattended.i did not have a phone to call for help after i hit... Read more »
First, try the state police--as to getting your stuff. Second if you have collision that should cover tow and storage. Third, if you can borrow the money then argue--at 35 a day before you know it it's over 1k. Better to have the car, then argue than have a gigantic bill and if you lose the...Read more »
Myself and 28 other previous le cordon bleu students were misled through sales tactics to lure us into high student loan debt with promise of earning salaries between $40,00 to $80,000 per year once we graduated. Upon graduation, we unsuccessfully applied for many kitchen manager positions. I for... Read more »

If someone buys a product from a business that is not on the manufacturers' list of authorized retailers, is the manufacturer still required to honor the warranty even if the manufacturer states on its' website that it only honors warranties when the buyer purchases from an authorized retailer?
This really depends on the situation. The manufacturer would still likely have liability for negligently built products and injuries arising fro them. However, the manufacturer would be unlikely to be required to honor general product warranties. Hope that helps.
