I left my racket at a sports club of which I wasn't a member. The coach picked it up and confirmed by email that he had it and had left it in his office. Then the COVID crisis hit so I was unable to visit the club to pick it up. The staff member was furloughed and never returned. Now the club... Read more »
Yes, you can bring an action for replevin to return your personal property to you. That email acknowledging possession is an indication of having possession of your chattel. Assuming the coach is an employee, the owner of the club is responsible also, so sue them both. If the racket is worth less...Read more »
Arguably, no notice is required if there was never a tenancy created, but to be safe, you could give a 30 day notice and then if they don't leave, you could file with the court. The eviction process is a bit complicated due to covid, so if you decide to hire a lawyer, I'm sure anyone who...Read more »

So, domestic abuse is a serious allegation and you have not stated the outcome of the charge(s) either. The Court would need to find that there is no risk to the children from being around this individual despite your romantic attachment and the Court could potentially grant father custody. Having...Read more »

Someone had been watching our dog as we looked for a place to live. Among other things, the pandemic prolonged the time it took to do so (4 months). Right before we were to contact the guy to get our dog, he randomly texted and said he killed the dog and threw him in the fire. Devistated, we... Read more »
Unfortunately, it is not as easy as merely requesting a civil standby. I have not filed a case like this personally, but I believe you should be able to file a case in justice court instead of at the superior court level since all you are seeking is possession of the property (dog). The fees will...Read more »

I asked and requested that he get a new mask or if I could bring any in. SEVERAL TIMES!!! Was told “I’ll get him one” spoke... Read more »
You can sue anyone for almost anything but that doesn't mean you can win. A lawsuit like this would never be a matter of Criminal Law even though it involves the administration of the county jail. This would be a matter of Civil Law and may need to include some sort of Civil Rights argument...Read more »
You have to provide notice and then give them a chance to cure by paying. If they don't and if they don't apply for rental assistance then you can file with the court. I'd strongly encourage you to hire a lawyer to assist with the eviction process because it has been more difficult...Read more »
Your employer can require you to wear a mask. If you have a medical note indicating that you cannot wear a mask due to a medical condition, that does not mean you get to take the mask off and work like you did before the pandemic. Rather, the employer as the obligation at that time to determine...Read more »

Lawyer up quick! Your statute of limitations is only 1 year and 90 days, and you were supposed to file a notice of claim within 90 days of the incident. Your lawyer can make a motion to late-file the 90-day notice of claim, but if you blow the statute of limitation, your goose is cooked!
The first thing that you should do is proceed to enforce collection of the judgment. The procedure involves utilizing the services of a Court Officer. You may wish to begin by either doing the necessary paper work yourself, retain a credit adjustment company, or retain the services of an attorney....Read more »
I’ve been on bond for a year and have not been indited ..or no court date or anything, been asking my “paid attorney”for a speedy trial since day one,because of my innocence. But I do think he knows the law very well. Keep saying cuz of covid but I’m going through a divorce and I’m going... Read more »
It is true that the right to a speedy trial does not attach until the case is indicted. It is also true that there is no right to a speedy indictment. However, you can usually force an indictment by demanding an Examining Trial to determine probable cause. This is only a good idea in rare...Read more »

You didn’t specify, but if you’ve got a court date, I assume you (and your daughter) are facing a truancy charge. That can be treated as a disorderly persons offense (NJ’s term for misdemeanor), and while the fine is low, it’s still not something you’d want to have on your background,...Read more »

Pr county website he has seen, No order/ judgement taken. I received notice of termination of month to month tenancy. On June 4th it Says rental of property has to be surrendered by 6/30/2021. This paper is not from a lawyer, court or service processor? Is this legal.
You are a month to month tenant, which means that the LL can terminate your lease with 15 days notice. You are not being evicted, so Covid has nothing to do with it. A landlord's notice that your tenancy is not being extended another month is not a document that comes via the court system. Its...Read more »
Landlord states I’m past due and owe 3200. last payment was 3000$ with stimulus money. I have three minor children, one of whom is diagnosed with a disability and receives SSD. Is the moratorium still valid on non payment due to COVID-19 hardship? I am SE EMPL, receive unemployment, have applied... Read more »
No, I don't believe the moratorium is still in effect. Basically, having already given you notice, what the landlord needs to do is file a complaint with the court and schedule a hearing. At or before that hearing, you must deposit the past due rent and other charges with the court. If you...Read more »
