I am under the impression that New York doesn't allow for domestication, and because it is required in both states it wouldn't be possible as a result. Therefore, my only options would be creating two LLCs, potentially dissolving the original, or creating a foreign entity in CA. However, I recently... Read more »
Arlene’s Flowers v. State of Washington is a collection of cases. They all are based on a gay couple who tried to order flowers for their wedding. The florist refused to provide floral arrangements for a same-sex wedding because of her Christian beliefs. The couple, with the help of the ACLU,...Read more »
The short answer is no. But, there are tax issues in each state, and the matter will turn on the manner of payment. The most famous case on this involved the State of New Jersey against Lawrence Taylor the football player. The state sought to recover taxes for each game day in NJ based on his...Read more »
Both NYS law and the Coop's By-Laws address requirements for the financial information that must be provided to shareholders. If you have questions about your specific building, it would be useful to sit down with an attorney to review the unique circumstances of your Coop.
Hired a contractor upon receiving a written estimate. He was provided with engineered building plans and the knowledge the code enforcement was involved. I was the permit holder. He received payment in advance due to him stating he could secure financing through Synchrony bank where he is a... Read more »
Your question assumes a critical fact not established in this dispute. Just because you say the contract was oral does not make it so. IMPO, the remodeling contract you have with the contractor is clearly evidenced by the written estimate provided to you, apparently without objection. Paying the...Read more »
In the Service Contract that we signed, payment of the retainage is specified as being no more than 30 days after the GC is paid by the Owner. I'm wondering if the actual due date for payment is 30 days after we complete work ... not based on whether the GC is paid or not. I believe that the... Read more »
I think you meant to write "restitution." If you pay anyone more than they are entitled to they will need to pay you back. You accidentally hand the McDonalds clerk a 50 instead of a 20 but only get change for a 20 they do not get to keep the excess unless they honestly did not see that you handed...Read more »
I pawned my stereo for $125 with the understanding that I would be back to pick it up within 7 days. I called on the 4 day and was told it got sold a few days prior. He not only broke out deal, but he broke state law by selling the item before the 5 day minimum wait time. I have a witness to the... Read more »
The amount of money involved is way too small to be of interest to most lawyers. FYI, the law is not designed to solve every little problem that comes your way during this lifetime; the Latin phrase for this rule is "De minimus non curat lex."
If you are using a name instead of your own, you definitely should have it registered as a DBA. While you do not have to incorporate, if you are hiring people, you should. One is not necessarily an independent contractor just because you say so.
I think one of the tenants (shareholders) in my building may have filed a lawsuit against the building for a "slip and fall". I would like to know if this could create significant risk to the building.
This was a B2B relationship. The client signed my contract, then they gave me a check and it bounced...it never cleared. I did some marketing work for the client and now the client is ignoring me and refuses to pay me what we agreed upon. What are my rights?
I hired a subcontractor to do work for me in NY state. He hired an uninsured, unlicensed guy to do the actual work. This person he hired went outside the scope of instructed work and started pulling wires, cutting wires, and shutting off breakers in my clients facility. Once this was discovered, he... Read more »
How do you know the sub was a non-employee. You can always contact the Department of Labor. That may not help you much but only the DOL can decide who is or who is not an employee. Even if everyone wanted to agree, in writing, that the unlicensed was independent. What both parties think is beside...Read more »
