Robert D. Kreisman's answer
It depends on the state jurisdiction. In Illinois, all jury trials need to be unanimous. If not, that would lead to a mistrial; a "hung jury." You should contact a FL attorney for the answer in your venue assuming you're speaking about a FL case. A federal jury case requires a unanimous verdict.

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.

Peter Munsing's answer
You need to figure the cost of repairing the damage vs cost of hiring an attorney. I don't know of any that would take that on a contingent fee.

However if it's provable and you have collision coverage or general property damage coverage, why not file a claim with your insurance and let them go after the mechanic?

You would look for a consumer attorney.

Whose name is the title in? The Registration in? You have got yourself in an awkward situation --best outcome is that you get to sue her for the payments. You need to notify her that she is responsible for maintaining the car, making the payments, and if she doesn't you may make the payments but will hold her responsible. Send her a bill every month.

There are no lemon laws in Kentucky regarding animals. Basic contract law controls. 2. Kentucky should have jurisdiction since you are here and the dogs are here. You can easily eliminate problem 2 by including in your sales contract that all disputes will be handled and resolved under Kentucky law.

1 Answer | Asked in Products Liability for Texas on
Answered on Jul 18, 2018
Justin Charles Roberts' answer
In most states, a borrower of a product is able to bring a product liability action. Notably, this has not always been the case. The law used to require a contractual relationship of some sort between the injured individual and supplier of the product in order for the injured person to bring a product liability action.

This was an ex-boyfriend, not an ex-husband, yes? Then it's not a family law issue.

Answered on Jul 10, 2018
Thomas A. Grossman's answer
If you read the code provision carefully, you will find that each one states one or more grounds for disciplinary action against a contractor (e.g. abandonment of a project without cause). You can go online and look up a website called "Find Law." You can access all the codes under the Business and Professions Code, and it costs you nothing to do so. I would think you can figure would know if you caused any of the violations specified in those statutes. Good Luck.
