Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer This Justia site is a free online legal forum established to allow members of the public to ask general legal questions to experienced lawyers who volunteer their valuable time to do so. Your important small business question should be directed to your business lawyer. If you have not consulted or retained a business lawyer you are encouraged to do so--before you make mistakes adversely affecting the future of your valuable small business.
Elaine Shay's answer If you are the owner of a condo unit, you do not have a typical landlord/tenant relationship with the board as you would in a coop apartment. Therefore, abatement may not be the correct term to use. If you want the situation corrected, you will need to have the formation documents carefully reviewed to determine the options available to you. If your board does not correct the situation, you may ultimately have to seek an Order in Supreme Court seeking to compel fulfillment of the board's...
Elaine Shay's answer Generally applications to the Court are made by Motion or Order to Show Cause. If there was a Stipulation of Settlement, it is possible that a different means of resolving disputes was provided for.
Michael David Siegel's answer You do not have to remove an attorney for post-judgment litigation. An engagement ends with the judgment. However, when you buy a judgment you buy it with any impediments, including that it might be vacated.
Michael David Siegel's answer If there is a bill outstanding, you get nothing without a court order. You do not get attorney notes and internal memos, but you get all pleadings, letters, emails, and discovery materials. The attorney will hand it over when someone else appears in the case for you.
Ali Shahrestani, Esq.'s answer An investigator may be able to help you with the license plate numbers, or alternatively you can request public records via the DMV. As for false arrest or defamation of character, you might be able to sue if the facts support your allegations. More details are necessary to provide a professional analysis of your issue. The best first step is an Initial Consultation with an Attorney such as myself. You can read more about me, my credentials, awards, honors, testimonials, and media appearances/...
I'm not hearing any specific facts in your situation. As a general rule a person chosing their route is responsible for it's safety. Unless there is a need to go across frozen water they would be harmed. Look at the Restatement of Torts Sec 343 and NY cases cited.As to state agencies, they are governed by the Tort Claims Act. If you have a case, contact a member of the NY State Trial Lawyers Assn.
Michael David Siegel's answer You can call anyone you want. It is America. However, title insurance is complex, and not the kind of case that lends itself to pro se representation unless you know what you are doing.
Barry Eran Janay's answer Depends on the review, but they are probably seeking damages for defamation and harm to their business reputation. These are fact intensive and "truth" is an absolute defense. You need to get a lawyer to defend yourself or your company.
Barry Eran Janay's answer While I'd need to see the actual letter to give the most accurate advice / opinion, I can say this. An Article 78 is essentially an appeal of a decision of an NY or NYC agency such as the Dept. of Health / Dept. of Vital Statistics, in order to successfully appeal the decision by the dept. / agency you need to show that they had no basis under the law for what they did (among other reasons). That being the case it depends entirely on the basis for the denial as to whether you should start an...
