I came in with a jacket on and went to the candy section. I walked down a couple aisles looking at ingredients of various products. The clerk then tells me that my jacket is suspicious and that I should take it off if I want to stay in the store. I comply and continue looking. The clerk then tells... Read more »
On its face, it appears to be an unpleasant encounter brought about by suspicion, and not a courteous manner in which to treat a store visitor. It could be the type of experience one would want to forget about, but if you believe that a violation of your rights took place, you could set up a...Read more »
An Alabama attorney who works with hospital/healthcare administration issues, patient bill of rights, etc. would know best. But as a general matter in any jurisdiction, a doctor, nurse, or other treating ER staff who asks an accompanying visitor to leave for sound reasons is not likely to have...Read more »
My father had a codicil drawn up about 23 years ago that would allow his lady friend to stay in his home until she died or moved. The house was deeded in his and my late mom's name. He died in 2012. About 7 years before then he added my one brother and me to the home deed. It has become a... Read more »

My ex boyfriend and I both signed for my vehicle, which I'm close to paying off. He will not respond to any requests to sign a POA to remove his name. I would like to trade it in or refinance, because I do don't want to pay it off while his name is still on it. I've paid every payment on it since... Read more »
You could contact the owners to ask if it turned up after you left. If your homeowner's policy covers such losses (it could exclude business equipment), that could be an option to explore. But if the value of the laptop is not high, the possibility of a hike in premiums is a factor to consider....Read more »

Unless you are an officer of the federal government, no one would file against you in the U.S. Court of Claims. Someone perhaps dialed your number by mistake or, perhaps more likely, it's some sort of a scam.
I'm not wanting to take anything away from anybody if they are owed it but also this situation is hard enough as it is and I kinda feel like I'm being taken advantage of as well. I had his possessions removed, house cleaned and even mowed the yard for them as well (they didnt ask at the time I was... Read more »
My father's sister would not help me and told me to find it myself. He must have been approved, as he said he was receiving checks. He had three children by his first marriage, first born mental retardation. My father's name was William L. SHATTUCK. His residence was in Madison County, Illinois.
This could be difficult because mesothelioma lawsuits can be part of a class action. If it was an ordinary civil case, chances are you could have found it in the court records of Madison County. You could start there just to check. If you know who his doctors were, or attorneys were on any previous...Read more »
It depends on the context of how the name was used. If it was done intentionally and with the aim of deceiving the other side in a matter, it could be considered fraud. It could further depend if the use was defined by civil statute or criminal code. This was not presented as a question, but if you...Read more »
I have been on LTD for 15 years. I am now being told I have been overpaid every month for that time and I owe a ton of money back.
