Q: can a college make you retake a class over after you already taken it, paid for it and passed it? same college mind you

You could check the school's course policy. Schools can impose their own specific conditions, such as attaining a certain grade in a course, etc. If you have an academic advisor, maybe they could help explain your rights. Good luck

Further details are needed to adequately address your question.

Q: Someone broke into my home and stole my dog and police won't help me get him back, what do I do?

What kind of lawyer do I need?

Lucas Wynne answered on Mar 17, 2018

You simply need a lawyer willing to take your case. Before a lawyer will take your case, you should have a retainer ready to pay and know who it was that stole the dog. If you don't know who it was, it's nearly impossible to initiate the proper lawsuit.
