  1. Harassment: Re: Statute of Limitations for Harassment Apply Only to Incident or Co. Reaction

    When it comes to sexual harassment, the way it works is that the employer is only liable for it if the employer (1) knew about the sexual harassment and (2) failed to take sufficient action to get it...
  2. Civil Rights Issues: Re: Is There Any Law or Legislation to Protect Civil Rights of Litigant Pro Se

    Pro se parties are given the same rights and are subject to the same rules that parties who are represented are. In federal court there are a few things in which the court does give some slack to pro...
  3. Motions: Re: Hard Question: Can You Appeal a Sister-State Judgment

    In what state do you practice and in what state are you planning to file the motion to vacate? If by sister state judgment you mean that the judgment creditor domesticated its Louisiana judgment in...
  4. Heirs and Beneficiaries: Re: Challenges Dealing with Multiple Groups of Heirs

    And you can tell them that step kids get nothing other than what is in the will, so taking the estate to court will get them nothing more than what you are offering them now.[/QUOTE]
  5. Social Security Issues: Re: Collecting Ss Benefits - Can Employer Cut My Pay

    There is no way to know if age discrimination is at work here based on the few facts we have. A lot depends on exactly what the reason is for the employer's action. I'd not be willing to say that...
  6. Police Conduct: Re: Knowingly Filing of a False Report by a Police Officer

    Some principles are worth fighting for. But IMO spending more on fighting this than you'd get in a judgment isn't worth the fight. It won't hurt the cop, and at worst the other driver gets a bump up...
  7. Business Ownership: Re: Single Member LLC - What Happens if I Were to Die

    You're not thinking that one through, Jack. If the account is owned by the LLC then it's pointless to have a beneficiary named because LLCs don't die. (They can terminate/dissolve, but they don't...
  8. Business Insurance: Re: Fire Takes Out Tenants Building, Can I Sue Their Innsurance Company Directly

    Quite true, but then as you imply the most straightforward way to go in that case is to simply make the direct claim with the insurance company. It would be helpful if the OP clarified a few things,...

    Medical Malpractice: Re: Too Old to Be Profitable

    It's a factor. The lawyer is going to look at everything. pg1067's discussion of the sliding scale is as good a way to describe it as any I can think of. Naturally if there is truly no chance at all...

    Social Security Issues: Re: Being Denied 100% Benefits

    I'm sorry, but the Social Security issue has nothing to do with serving the country. Every citizen, whether veteran or not, is subject to the same SSA rules. Pulling out the veteran card for...

    Re: Nlrb Toll Extensions

    Tell us why you were unable to make the deadline and perhaps I can find case law that addresses whether that might get an extension. That's the more focused way to find what you are looking for...

    Social Security Issues: Re: Being Denied 100% Benefits

    It is not the Social Security Administration (SSA) that is to blame for your problem. The amount of benefits you get and the COLA adjustments are all set by Congress. SSA has to apply the law as...

    Medical Malpractice: Re: Too Old to Be Profitable

    Oh yes, his age does have something to do with it. It has a very real impact on the amount of damages that might be won in the lawsuit. The lawyers look at everything that would affect the amount of...
  14. Business Insurance: Re: Fire Takes Out Tenants Building, Can I Sue Their Innsurance Company Directly

    Their insurance company didn't cause your loss. In addition that, their insurance company has no obligation to you. Its contract is with its insured — the tenants. So absent something unusual that...

    Re: Double Jeopardy

    That is the test often stated. The same test is usually used for lesser included offenses. But in the case of double jeopardy, that test may not be adequate. Let's suppose that the facts needed for...
  16. Foreclosure: Re: Do We Havwe Any Option After Foreclosure if We Can Prove Fraud

    You might have at least an action for legal malpractice. But if you want to sue for that, you probably need a lawyer. If you look for lawyers that do legal malpractice cases you should find that they...

    Re: Double Jeopardy

    Part of what the majority likely wanted to avoid is the messy problems that come up in trying to sort out which prosecutions would violate double jeopardy if you tossed the dual sovereignty issue....
  18. Police Conduct: Re: Knowingly Filing of a False Report by a Police Officer

    What forensic evidence? The cop apparently said he took statements from various witnesses. I don't see anything that indicates he did any kind of accident investigation or anything that suggests he...
  19. Disability Benefits: Re: Disability and Income from Renting a House Out

    OP refers to the "original poster", which in this case would be you since you started the thread.
  20. Re: Can a Basement Apt. (Condo) Be Charged the Same Assoc. Fees As Other Units

    Of course her hurt and anger are things that shouldn't just be brushed off; she'll need to work through those emotions to reach a place where she can get past that and decide on how to move forward,...
  21. Re: Can a Basement Apt. (Condo) Be Charged the Same Assoc. Fees As Other Units

    She needs to have a lawyer look over the condo documents. She was given a different status while she was employed as the building super, which relieved her of paying condo fees apparently for...
  22. Criminal Records: Re: Challenge for Petition of Actual Innocent Within Statute of Limitation

    Well, you already addressed that earlier when you called him egotistical. I didn't take his statement to suggest you are ignorant, but only that he may know more of the subject because of his...
  23. Criminal Records: Re: Challenge for Petition of Actual Innocent Within Statute of Limitation

    Disagree on the substance if you like, but do you have also include personal attacks? This kind of snarky statement really does nothing to advance your argument, jk.
  24. Purchase Contracts: Re: What is the Best Way to Approach This Short Sale Property

    This is a forum about the law rather than a forum in how to invest in real estate. Your post raises no legal issues but rather is simply a question about timing your offer for the best deal on the...
  25. Student Discipline: Re: Filing a Grievance or Lawsuit Against a School District

    Based simply one what you've said here I see no basis for a successful lawsuit. You mentioned only two incidents, one in which you complained about the amount of playing time your kid was getting and...
