In order to let her know that she is no longer his power of attorney, you can send her a copy of the document via certified mail with a return receipt requested. If the power of attorney is already filed in the county in which he resided, a revocation can be filed.

Usually, there is no sort of legal "recognition" for a victim of an appellate lawsuit. If you are the victim of the crime that was the subject of that case, by law the publishers will not publish your name because you were a minor when the criminal conduct occurred.

Q: Can I bring a lawsuit against pizza companies that outsource their delivery driving to doordash?

For instance, when I order a pizza through papa johns, there's a delivery charge included. But when it comes time to deliver the pizza, it's doordash doing the delivering, not papa johns. Should the delivery charge be included if it's a different company bringing the food?

How is the delivery fee calculated? Does it clearly reflect the cost of using a third-party delivery service like DoorDash? If the fee appears to be inflated or disproportionate to the actual cost of delivery, it could be argued that the pizza company is unjustly profiting.

A medical power of attorney allows the agent (his mother) to make any health care decision he could make for himself if he is unable to do so.

You can have him sign a new power of attorney naming you as his agent and revoking his previous power of attorney to his mother.

You likely do not have standing to sue the websites, and the websites likely are legally responsible. Moreover, that would be an expensive and inefficient route to take.
