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.

Q: Since I'm 16 and boyfriend 19 do i need my parents permission to date him?

Matthew Williams answered on Jun 22, 2016

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 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.

my onsite manager works on getting apts ready sometimes real late and on weekends and was just wondering if there is a set time that they had to stop for the day I live in ohio but couldn't find anything myself about it.

Matthew Williams answered on Mar 22, 2016

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.

He does have a problem here. He was cited, and it sounds like the damage is going to make it look like he probably hit the other car. He really ought to get an attorney.

My medical insurance company wants to contact her insurance company for reimbursement. We want to settle this as amiably as we can, without insurance involvement if possible. My med... Read more »

Matthew Williams answered on Mar 18, 2016

Your question is a bit unclear. There are no special limits on liability having to do with horses, but that doesn't really seem to be the point of your post. If your insurance company paid out, it has a right to seek reimbursement whether you want to settle the matter amicably or not. If you paid... Read more »

On the third DUS, the chance of getting jail time is real. Each court is a little different. If you are dealing with a busy court in a big city, it is less likely. If you are dealing with a small town court, it is more likely. You should get an attorney in either case. As to your second question,... Read more »

Q: I am 20 years old and my girlfriend is 17. We got caught smoking weed 6 months ago

I received a ovi and a drug charge. She revived a drug charge as well. We've been together 4 years now. A few days ago she got a no contact order against me. She just told me she might be pregnant. Will they revoke the no contact order? Will I go to jail. What are the possible outcomes I might face?

Matthew Williams answered on Mar 16, 2016

It's impossible to say what exactly they will do with the no contact order without understanding the reasons for which she obtained it. Jail is rather unlikely. I am assuming the two of you were sexual intimate and this child may well be yours. As long as sex was consensual and she was over the age... Read more »

Q: A girl sent me nude pictures and she told me she was about to be 18. Turns out she is 17. I am 26 is it illegal?

Matthew Williams answered on Jan 25, 2016

Yes, as odd as this sounds, it is illegal for you to possess, create, solicit, distribute, or otherwise have anything at all to do with a nude picture of her, but technically, you two could have a legal, private, sexual relationship. Weird right?
