In Utah, you can potentially sue a company for using pictures of something you built without crediting you, but the outcome depends on various factors. For personalized legal advice tailored to your unique circumstances, it's advisable to consult with an attorney.
If one learns one has been named a defendant in a federal civil suit prior to actually being served (say, for instance, by coming across the complaint while reading other cases), does the 21-day "clock" start counting down to respond from the moment one first becomes aware one is a... View More

Per the contract it says they have 7 days to arrange financing from date of sale, and if they are unable to I may rescind the contract within 14 days from date of purchase.

First, it sounds as if the only agreement you signed is the one you both co-signed for the purchase of the car. The normal expectation is that you have the right to continue to pay the car loan on time until it is paid off. If you failed to do so, and the co-signer had to step in to save the...View More
It depends on what your rights under the contract are, which are going to be stated in the contract. The fact that the contract made an error in naming the escrow company will probably not be a material term giving you an excuse to back out. It is also important why you want to back out....View More

When you say that the monopoly game was fixed, I am not sure understand. Did they misrepresent anything? Did you read their fine print of the rules and find out that they were lying? If so they could be liable. If you thought your chances of winning were better than what McDonalds represented...View More
Technically a person can be arrested anywhere because a warrant is a judicial command to any law enforcement to arrest that person. Whether an officer at the DMV is likely to execute a warrant is hard to say. But, if DMV suspended a license due to a warrant, and the warrant still exists, it seems...View More
A Utah attorney could answer you best, but your question remains open for two weeks. Before jumping straight into suing, which could be costly, you could think about other approaches. Is there any possibility of resolving things through customer service or arranging a refund or exchange? If not,...View More
My boss told me to cancel his Waste Management service because his monthly trash bills were ridiculously high. I contacted them and told them I needed to cancel the service because it's too expensive. We have another provider that will do the same service for 100's less per month. They... View More
I do not practice law in Utah--but I am very well aware of how easy it is these days to trick people into doing something they never intended to do. However, that said, I also know how easy it is for THE BUSINESS (not you) to hire lawyer to take up the business' mantle and push back at...View More

An attorney looking at these facts might ask for further details. A Utah attorney who handles such matters could examine all statements/written evidence from you and the merchant to determine whether the elements of fraud, as alleged by the merchant, were met.
Sounds like you were served with a 10-day summons. The plaintiff can you use a 10-day summons to serve a lawsuit (summons & complaint) without having to pay the court filing fee. Once the papers are served, the plaintiff has 10 days to file a lawsuit. The summons should have stated on it that...View More
We bought a 6 month old puppy through KSL classifieds two months ago. We took her in to be spayed two weeks later and learned that she had a severe bladder infection along with blatter stones and crystals. The cost of diagnosis and treatment exceeded the cost of the puppy. On top of that, we... View More
I am sorry for your situation. Utah is a buyer beware state. There are some enhanced duties if the seller is a "merchant" meaning that they do this for their profession, but unless he actively hid it from you or represented that the puppy definitely did not have eptopic...View More
