My now ex gf. Sent videos of me and another woman having relations to my boss. The other woman so happened to be a coworker but the relationship was over. We both got fired as it was against our work policy to have relations within the same store. We wrote our statement and got terminated. Can I... Read more »
Spiteful thing to do, to be sure. But legally, I am unsure you have a case. How did your ex get a hold of those videos? If she got them illegally, you might have something. Even with that though, what she did with them isn't necessarily actionable.
You lost me at "non assertive conduct" and "rules of evidence". Depending on what context you are referring, you might want to take a look at Rule 408. You may also wish to research the meaning of "testimonial".
Depends on the context, door-to-door sales, contract for the purchase of goods, employment contract, etc. Each will have its own method of getting out of a contract but they nearly all will depend on the other party.
The real question is: how do you prove a lie is a lie? If I testify that I saw a man in a blue car turn right, can you prove I'm lying about what I saw? At best, if you were there too, you could testify that you perhaps saw a green car turn left. Would either of us be lying?
I want to go into the field of Law as an adult, and I think that doing some entry-level internship at a local Law Firm would look really good on my resume, and give me the experience I need to further myself in this field. I am very set on this occupation and I really just want to file papers at a... Read more »
Congratulations for taking initiative! No concrete advice, but I can tell you the legal profession has changed substantially since I was in your position. The summer I graduated high school, I worked in a small law firm that had a library. Caselaw book companies would send out what were called...Read more »

You may have a small claims action, but before you go that route, consider what your time and money is worth. Also - and this may sound like a dumb question, but is something you'd need to legally prove - how can you prove she lived there or that the place was not in that condition before she...Read more »
Your question confuses rights on private versus public lands. Stores are privately owned facilities opened to the public. The owners, or their employees, may tell whomever to not enter the store. You see this commonly in cases of retail fraud where the person is ordered to stay out of the store....Read more »

Possible, but most importantly, you're describing a situation that you should probably hire an attorney to assist you with. There might be certain rules regarding formal notice as well as statute of limitations to be cognizant of.
My understanding is that process servers can charge more than the prescribed fees under MCL 600.2559 if there is a written agreement beforehand. What I don't understand is the statements concerning taxes and recovery of fees. "...a person entitled to tax costs shall not attempt to tax and... Read more »
It means that if a party is entitled to "tax cost" - fancy way of saying a person is legally entitled to collect their costs from the other party - that person can only recover the amounts listed in that statute and not more even if they paid more for service of process.
Your recourse against your cosigner would likely be in indemnity, which would require YOU to have paid off the entirety of the balance owed. You would then be seeking reimbursement, essentially, for that person's half of the debt, plus any other damages you can assert.
Once a child turns 18, you have no independent right to access their records. There would certainly be a death certificate on file with the county clerk's office, which is a public record anyone can access (for a fee). Other than that, if you want to look deeper into things (and depending on...Read more »
that the car had to be fully paid for the title to exchange hands. Now the buyer is saying the car doesnt work and he wants money back. The car was working when i dropped it off and i still have the title, but i never agreed on any type of return... Read more »
This will be an easy matter with a written agreement determining who does what. Assuming your agreement is "Seller agrees to sell car after Buyer pays X-amount of money", it sounds like, legally, your buyers just bought a broke-down car. BUT, how do you get the rest of your money? How do...Read more »
You may be entitled to damages - the return of the extra money sent to the collector - but likely not from your employer. Once a valid garnishment order is received, your employer has a legal duty to keep garnishing until they received legal authority to stop. I don't see how they can be...Read more »
Jury selection is different from trial. The seated jury - the people who are selected to actually hear the case - can make a verdict only on what is presented in court, not by what was mentioned during jury selection.
