Q: What is the maximum a judge can do for a bond for this offense

It was from may 2019, the person called and said she had permission, she didn't know she had a warrant for it as they never served it. The judge gave her a $10,000 bond. They never offered her a attorney or public defender

Your question doesn't state what the offense is. $10k is a middle of the road bond number that could apply to any number of offenses. In many counties, one must apply for a public defender. You should contact the local public defender's office to find out the procedure.

An Ohio attorney would be able to advise best, as state health care or privacy laws could apply, but your question remains open for two weeks. You could speak with other parents and look into why the information is being requested, whether for the information to be on hand in the event of a medical... Read more »

Your question remains open for three weeks, and it could be something that a doctor might be able to advise about better than an attorney could. If you have health concerns, consult with a doctor as to what it might be. Hopefully, a doctor could help you in terms of the best course of action. Good... Read more »

Q: Can my employer refuse my unemployment / FMLA due to Covid-19?

I was off work for a total of 6 days. I started showing signs of Covid-19 and sought out medical attention. I was turned away from my family doctor because I had several symptoms of Covid-19.

FMLA does not provide for paid leave, so that's out. As to unemployment, that is filed with the state, and they make that determination. Did the state give you a reason as to why they refused unemployment compensation? It sounds like you just voluntarily left the job.

You should contact the police to fill out a report and likely a civil protection order to keep the person away. Talk with an attorney to file a temporary restraining order against the person. The first thing is to stop the threat immediately, then worry about a civil suit at a later time.

If your mother owns the home, then she can evict your boyfriend. Simple as that. Since he has lived there 2+ years, she will have to go through the formal eviction process as he has clearly established residency there. It does not matter at all that he has been helping to pay bills.

You can retain an automobile with a mechanic's lien without filing anything so long as you don't violate any portions of the Ohio Consumer Sales Protection Act (OSCPA), specifically everything in OAC 109:4-3-13 Motor vehicle repairs or services. Your situation is a little different in... Read more »

Their actions are likely violations of Ohio's Consumer Sales Practices Act. If they haven't paid you but have demanded more money before they give you a refund, you can likely seek your damages from them, plus treble (three times) damages, and reasonable attorney fees.

You would have better chances of an attorney who is familiar with pay-related matters seeing your question in the Employment Law category. You could try reposting there. Good luck

You have not asked a question. Assuming you are wondering if the hotel might be found liable in a lawsuit, it would depend on the circumstances and also whether actual injury occurred.

Sort of. Legally you can date whomever you please, but you must also obey reasonable rules set by your parents. Not dating adult men is a reasonable rule. So, while it is not criminal to date him without your parent's permission, your parents do have the legal right to enforce their rules by... Read more »

Q: If a mechanic fixes my car after I tell him I don't have the money to pay for it and then leave with it can they file

Charges on me for stealing parts even tough I told them before hand I didn't have the money to get it fixed before they even touched it

Matthew Williams
Matthew Williams answered on Jun 12, 2016

Did you tell them to fix it or not? I suspect their side of the story will be quite different. To answer your question, no they can't file charges. They can report a suspected crime to the police, who will investigate and work with a prosecutor to determine whether or not to file charges.

This issue is going to be governed by local municipal law. Many cities do have work restrictions particularly for the kind of construction work that makes a lot of noise. Check with city hall.
