Q: I won an abandoned storage unit in PDX owned by a film company. Can I sell the manuscripts/ reels/ photos back to them?

The unit contained not only the manuscripts/reels/files/notes/art for most of the films they have ever produced, but I have over 20,000 personal family photos dating back to the 1920's, and original artwork of a locally famous painter related to the films studio owner.

The items are now your personal property. Keep in mind you only have the property rights, so some items would have intellectual property rights to them (for instance copyright on the manuscript) so you just own that copy, not the rights to the films.

Honestly, it would not matter, to the extent there would be different forms. A release would be a release. The accident occurred in Oregon, which means that is really the proper forum.

A few years back, Jeep had similar issue, causing death and injuries. Possibly same issues, since Dodge is part of same company.

Attorneys bring lawsuits but experts are required to establish that someone was negligent. An attorney can't do that.

Q: I have a 12 year old cherry tree who's roots uplifted a neighbor's walkway. Am I liable for the damages?

This old cherry tree used to sit with the trunk on my side of our property. Over the years its roots grew towards some water drainage on the other side of the fence (in the neighbor's yard). It uplifted their cement walkway by about 2 inches. When they notified me about it, I quickly had the... Read more »

You could ask your homeowners. Overhanging branches are a form of trespass. Roots it's not so clear. If they are held to be trespassing and lift the pavement the answer would be yes. However it's possible that from some readings the law would be no.

It is not really clear.

The general rule is the vehicle in motion has the duty to look for stationary objects, vehicles even if they aren't where they... Read more »

Peter N. Munsing answered on Jun 25, 2016

A lot is fact specific and your damages would be the cost of what you paid (or payment plus monthly charges). Suggest you write them a demand letter for starters--any judge will want to see that you asked. No, you don't get paid for hassle of it, waiting on hold, and other fun Verizon times. You...
