My son was caught taking a hat from six flags over the summer. Yes he was wrong. They revoked him pass for a year. I’m fine with that. I’m not fine that he was questioned alone at first before they brought his older brother in and another security officer. A few months later we received a fine... Read more »
I'm sorry for your family's ordeal. A possible reason your post remains open for two weeks might be that it may have gone unnoticed under Securities Law, which is more about transactions dealing with financial assets like stocks and bonds. At this point, you could seek the opinion of a criminal...Read more »

After 7 days, it is still not activated as I hoped and the 7th day was the deadline of a transaction that I wanted to do using the account. Furthermore I told them of the urgency &... Read more »
Probably not--unless you can prove up some financial damages. Speculative losses are not reliable; neither are speculative gains. Brokerage firms--online or otherwise--cannot be held liable for mistakes that do not actually harm the customer.
The contract has expired on my secured loan which I secured with my vehicle but I still owe the fees for late payments. Can my vehicle still be reprocessed? I have paid $2200 of the $ 3300 of late fees I owed.
Maryland usury law is rather complicated and has all sorts of different rates of interest depending on the situation. For instance, the maximum legal rate of interest permissible for a Maryland loan might be 6%, 8%, 18% or 33% depending on the facts.
I have had a background check and have searched the Michigan State Police site and done another background check on myself and it didn't show up. I just don't know if there is another way they can see it or find an expunged record.
If you have a court order granting an expungment, they you can honestly say you do not have a misdemeanor. An expunged conviction is "non-public"; it does not disappear. Courts and law enforcement have access to expunged convictions. Further, depending on how detailed an employer or anyone else...Read more »

You cannot sue the State of Florida--or the Florida Department of Financial Services--for punitive damages under any theory of law. Sign the settlement agreement and accept the $100 Florida apparently owes you.

The very first thing to do is to cease and desist from doing whatever you apparently did. If the C&D is aimed at your company selling the company will not necessarily save you from being sued. Neither will "closing the business" protect you from possible liability. Finally--depending upon what the...Read more »

At this point you should probably see an attorney who specializes in securities fraud to ascertain whether you have an action against the investment firm for changing type of account without proper authority.

Your question remains open for three weeks, and at this point, if you haven't already, consult with a Texas attorney. This sounds more like a real property matter than one about securities or civil rights. At any rate, the category is not really important at this point. It appears to be something...Read more »
