You have to ask the law firm representing you in the class action lawsuit. But if the action is still pending, many firms could be reluctant to speculate about an outcome or to discuss figures.

Q: Can I use my military ID/base access as a job recruiter or does this violate any laws regarding financial gain?

I am an Army officer, federal subcontractor and private business owner. Interested in attending school graduations at a base with the intent of hiring.

Better check in with JAG corps on this--sounds like potential multiple violations. You should know that access is for the specific purpose only. Can you hand out cards, or other items? Not sure of that but if someone is looking to burn you you're giving them a match it seems to me.

Q: I was wondering if i have a case with Dominos for making me wait 3 hours for my food delivery. Also more to story.

Elizabeth Tarasi answered on Aug 4, 2018

In a products liability case you need to have a duty, breach of the duty and damages. I’m not sure if pizza delivery gives rise to a duty. What are your damages? You would have to have damages in the six figure area to warrant the expense of litigation.

Q: Can i sue McDonalds for serving my wife and i raw burgers which we ingested not even thinking it could be raw?

My wife is pregnant and raw meat can literally kill our unborn child. They refunded a portion of our order and replaced the burgers and they were still raw

Kathryn Hilbush answered on Apr 4, 2018

Your question went out to the family law attorneys. You should discuss this with a personal injury attorney. My thoughts are that, unless you actually suffered damages, there are no grounds for a lawsuit, but, as I said, you should check with a personal injury attorney.

Q: can i sue a seller for shipping a lethal weapon unsafely

Peter N. Munsing answered on Dec 5, 2017

You can only sue if something bad happened--an injury. You don't sue because something might have happened. Assuming the weapon got to you safely then I don't see anything . If you were charged because of the shipping issue you would have a defense that you had no control over how it was shipped.
