I going through my parent's estate, I found 2 fairly large bottles of old-time quack medicines. One listed ingredients as strychnine. Both bottles had significant quantities still remaining in them. I know pharmacies won't take prescription containers if the medicine is still in them.
It's hard to say what type of attorney is closest to your issues, because it could introduce a number of issues, in terms of controlled substances (medicines that might not have been controlled at the time of production), poisonous substances (strychnine is a poison - a toxicologist could...Read more »
There isn't really a formal procedure. A California attorney could advise about the systems used there. In New York, you could access decisions on the website of the Unified Court System.

This isn't a law firm where you could request a bid for a letter to be written. What you describe sounds like it might be resolved more easily with trying to work with their tech support, either on your own, or maybe through a tech-savvy family member or friend. The tech support operations of...Read more »
I was denied entry into a store for not wearing a mask. I do not wear a mask due to it giving me anxiety. I am wondering if I would be covered under Americans Disability Act and if there are any legal steps I can take towards this. Thank you.
There are attorneys who specialize their practice in ADA matters. There is not a section dedicated to ADA attorneys here, but they can be found on the Internet. As with disabilities in general, an attorney you consult with would likely want to know if medical documentation is available. Good luck...Read more »
I own a .com cosmetics website where users leave their personal information including age range, skin tone and skin concerns (acne, eczema etc) and they have an option to show or hide this information on their public profile. Giving them an option to hide this information is enough not to violate... Read more »

It is unclear to me what happened to you and what you want to happen now. To answer your direct question, a plaintiff must prove damages even if a case is uncontested. The proofs are uncontested but must exist and be cognizable under the law.

As Mr. Siegel points out, it depends on the contract. It could depend on how certain terms or elements are defined or how they could be interpreted. One option to consider might be to explore the cost of a brief attorney consult to review the contract in its entirety. Unfortunately, this situation...Read more »

You could try reposting your question in the Trademark and Intellectual Property sections. This isn't really a product liability matter (which is about injuries from dangerous or defective products) There's no guarantee that all questions are picked up, but it sounds like you're...Read more »
I have been involved in a bogus lawsuit with a former employer. The main defendant died of cancer in 2019. They originally filed a motion to remove him; then COVID-19 happened and everything was put on hold. Now they have filed a Motion of Order pursuant to CPLR 3217(b) permitting a voluntary...

Too many pronouns and not enough information. Are you a plaintiff or defendant? If a defendant, do you have counterclaims or crossclaims? There is a usual form for this, and in general, it is in your favor to have this happen. A lawyer could review everything for a few hundred dollars.
My orthodontist located on the upper east side in Manhattan is closed due to corona. However, people who wear Invisalign (like me) need our next set of trays. The orthodontist said they will mail all patients their trays to their home, but they will charge everyone a universal fee of $75.00 because... Read more »
You raise a valid point, but the office could argue they incur packaging, handling, and other costs as a result of the measures. Unlike standard fees for duplicating medical records, something like this might not be directly addressed by health laws. The recent crisis is creating new issues for...Read more »
We live on the 8th floor. Right next to our building is another building which has 6 floors and cell phone towers on the roof. One of the antennas is shooting right next into our apartment (its right across our windows, less than 50 yards). First we didn't pay attention to it but then we... Read more »
An attorney couldn't comment meaningfully on this data. An electrical engineer, microwave engineer, health professional, or other professionals familiar this field would be in a better position to have insight into this. Good luck
Now I gonna get hit with all these fees. My checks have the old routing number and were told that information was good and didn't need new checks. Fast forward now, after I was barely able to sign up for unemployment, I still have no money.
I'm sorry for your ordeal. Unfortunately, it has become difficult to conduct many ordinary banking operations because of the health crisis out there, with some banks maintaining lobby service, some drive-through only, and some only online or through appointment. Try to see if the bank could...Read more »
