    Auto Insurance: Re: Test Drive and Damage to My Vehicle

    Canadian law isn't covered by this forum, but in America this would be covered under your personal collision/glass insurance. The only time an insurance company might try to dispute it is if the...
  2. Drug Trafficking / Distribution: Re: Im in a Fishy Legal Situation.

  3. Drug Trafficking / Distribution: Re: Im in a Fishy Legal Situation.

    I think the OP is trying to distinguish between addictive/physically harmful chemicals versus mentally harmful chemicals. I'm pretty libertarian leaning on personal possession laws, but dealing drugs...
  4. Drug Possession: Re: Caught with Very Little Marijuana, What Will Happen

    Your point while taken doesn't help the OP. The OP knew that possession was illegal in his state and still choose to carry it in his/her car where is could easily be found if stopped or searched. I...
  5. Determination of Fault: Re: Being Blamed for a Car Accident That Wasn't My Fault

    For future reference, you need to collect money on the spot if you intend to settle outside of the insurance. Too easy for something like this to happen. I had a similar incident happen once and I...

  8. Service Providers: Re: Bell Internet Refusing to Refund Deposit for Services That Were Not Provided

  9. Defamation: Re: Can I Sue My Past Daycare Provider for Slander and Defamation

    Of course you can sue, but without any more details it's very hard to determine if you have a valid case. An attorney familiar with the laws in your state can make a better determination if your case...
  10. Seat Belt Violations: Re: Seat Belt Ticket Given While Wearing Seat Belt

    If your story is the correct account of the events, then the police officer had no right to give you a ticket. I can't foresee any reason why an LEO would lie to give you a ticket but I imagine that...
  11. Security Deposits: Re: Roommate Wants Prorated Rent Refund After Moving Out

    Unless your written contract says otherwise, the last months rent should have been paid directly to you and the security deposit is used to cover damages/cleaning. It sounds like you did not have a...
  12. Repair and Maintenance: Re: Tenants Want to Use Their Security Deposit to Make Repairs While Still in Residen

    Drug Possession: Re: Sibling Doing Drugs

    Why are you meddling with your mothers affairs? If it's her house, she should be calling the cops to deal with your brothers drug problems. It sounds like a dysfunctional family to me.
  14. Retail Fraud / Shoplifting: Re: Uninteded Shoplifting, No Police Called

    It's a tough situation to deal with if it wasn't your fault, but it's also a very common excuse to blame the theft on a child. The LPs knew about the items hidden by the car seat because they saw...
