  1. My mom was in the hospital in a coma for 2 months before she died. After, she passed, I found that someone she knew wrote checks, and paid their own bills. I called one of the business owners to ask for the money back. He admitted he accepted the check from this person (his name was written on the top corner for the business owner to apply it to his account) as, he is his long time customer so he trusted him. However, he refused to give back the money. It's been almost 3 years. I hired a handwriting specialist to prove the checks were forged. I want to take the owner to small claims now, as the police tried to arrest the forger, but they refused to do a handwriting analysis, and claimed they didn't write the checks. The police said they can prove mom didn't write it, but can't prove who did write them. That leaves the business owner on the hook.I just don't know what to sue them for. Is it fraud? Derelict of duty and/or collusion ? I'm just not sure.The business owner isn't supposed to take a 3rd party check without checking ID, due to Identity theft. The person that gave him the check, paid their gardener, medicaid premiums & more.
  2. My mother passed away. she left me her house in her will. I have a court order saying the house is set aside without administration. So do i record the court order? And that is it? What about the property taxes? How do they get into my name? And it is a mobile home on a piece of land. so i have personal and real property taxes. And the court order is dated november 22, 2016. Do i have a time frame to record this??? I have the homeowners insurance in my name. I just want to make sure everything is done legally.. And i want to homestead the house or land. And i have a lien from health and human services from my mothers medicaid bill. I ask them if i could make payments. They told me no because of my brother is disabled. But he has nothing to do with owning the house. So does that make any sense? He tried to say he owned half. But the judge said i own all of it. That is what the court order says. I'm confused.
  3. I am starting research for a documentary film about a murder that happened in Las Vegas, Nevada in the late 90's. I'm having a hard time finding the case number in order to get access to the transcripts from the trial. Also I'm not really sure where to find access to the transcripts once i get the case number. What is the best way to find this information?
  4. A company in Nevada was served, or at least I think they were, back around the early 2000s. Would there be any public record of that summons? If so, how could I go about locating it?
  5. My daughter is a resident at an complex in Las Vegas Nevada - we were sent an email notice on September 19 that all residents needed to come by and pick up a new parking pass because of management company change - we are registered online with their website with her license plate and pay monthly parking fees. Today - she discovered that her car had been towed and was forced to pay the tow charges of $260 because we didn't have the new sticker. We were on vacation and didnt have ample time to get a new one within 9 days from the date of their email. No signs were placed up and this was the only form of notification. I also know there were multiple cars towed for other residents in the same situation. I am looking to find out if we have any basis for getting them to cover that tow cost as I don't feel that it was ample notice. On the email that I received there was no deadline or date that said you will be towed after "x" date if it has not been updated. No deadline for getting the new pass and only 9 days notice doesn't seem to be an adequate notice but I would love any input as to this matter - and whether that is legal.
  6. What if a deed says (John doe ) an unmarried woman and (joe doe ) an unmarried woman , as joint tenants . But John Doe was the one with the cash .. they are siblings.. joe doe told John Doe in case something was to happen it would avoid probate and the state could take everything. we didn't no joe Doe was planning on ripping off John from the begging .. so I need to prove deciet or fraud .. is joint tenants .

  7. I wanted to take his ass to small claims court for what he did to me but the police won't give me his name/address. Can I file against a John Doe and Subpoena dices tecum the cops? (I don't think they allow Does in S.C. but not sure). Any other ideas? TY!!
  8. My son is about to be sentenced on felony charges. The person that bailed my son out on these charges was sued by my son's sentencing judge for an accident that resulted in the judge being confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life. The judge lost all suits because the court ruled the accident was the judges fault. Isn't this a conflict of interest? Shouldn't the judge recuse himself from my son's case?

  10. Could I file a John Doe complaint in civil court, issue subpoena ducea tecum to find out the name and address of someone that posted a pic on facebook insulting my very young child just because they were pissed at me, then dismiss the case and then refile in Small Claims on my child's behalf (and myself for copyright violation)? I have Guardian status to file suits for him. Also, how long does a company (like facebook) have to remove a photo under dmca? Thanks.
  11. Hi, I signed a contract with my apartments, only to be told more than a month later, the amount for my rent was $25 less than it should be. They have told me I am required to sign a new contract and I owe for the $25 I didn't pay for July. Am I required to sign? Or are they out of luck? Second question is, am I required to help pay an additional $10 per month for their building insurance? I was told the additional was to cover their building, but not my things. Isn't that what's suppose to be figured into rent payments? I definitely do not plan to renew next summer. Thank you
  12. I was awarded a $10,000 default judgment against a competitor (personally and her FFN). She does not have a business, only an FFN (Fictitious Firm Name). She personally filed a timely motion to set aside the default judgment. It was on her behalf only. The judge granted it today because the defendant "accidentally wrote the wrong hearing date on her calendar" (a bald-faced lie). Anyhow, two questions. Can I challenge my default against her FFN having been vacated since she never requested that it be vacated, only the one against her personally? Second, can I appeal the justice court's arbitrary and capricious decision to vacate my default judgment? Thank you.
  13. I have taken care of my niece for over 2 years with no help from her mother or father. Her mom wants her to come live with her next year but my niece doesn't want to live with her she really wants to stay with me. She is 11 years old and really loves living with me is there anything I can do to keep her with me June 2018 will be 3 years.
  14. My mom passed away July, 2016 and my brother and I are 50/50 on the living trust, which my mom's house is on. I live in California and the house is in Nevada. My brother lives in the house, but he isn't paying the property taxes, which have not been paid in close to three years. He is also not keeping up the maintenance, which is causing the house to deteriorate. I want out of this partnership because he is not a reasonable person and is refusing to pay his half of the property taxes. What can I do to force him to either pay me out my part, or sell the house?
  15. We were in Las Vegas staying at Treasure Island. On July 1st we came back to our hotel room after going out for lunch and discovered that someone had stolen some of our luggage (including the contents inside), a backpack, car keys, jewelry, and other valuables. We contacted the front desk and security. We completed an incident report and itemized all of our losses (including the estimated cost of each item). In total, the lost items totaled $2,600. We had 2 rooms (adjoining) and we noted that when we left our room (to go to lunch) , one room was clean and one wasn't. When we returned to our room and noticed the theft, both rooms were clean which means housekeeping was in our room while we were out. We received a certified letter from Treasure Island today stating that the found no negligence on the part of the hotel therefore they denied our claim. We fully intend to contact an attorney (we live in the California, Bay Area) however any insight/input regarding our case would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  16. Hello. How long do I have to file suit against my ex-landlord for the return of my security deposit? I cannot find the statute of limitations ANYWHERE. Thank you. dr_sn0w
  17. I have a 2014 hybrid vehicle that has had several problems with hybrid system. The dealership that has done the repairs has always given me a hard time and tried to cheat me out of my warranty coverage. The last time the hybrid system warning came on and the car died, I again had it towed in to the dealership and the service manager tells me that my engine seized from sludge, even though it was the hybrid system warning that came on again - never did the engine light come on or the oil light and I had an oil change only a month prior and he made no mention of sludge then. Incidentally, my hybrid system is still under warranty, but the engine is not. I was told it would cost me around $7000 to put a new engine in, which I can't afford to do, My car stayed there for a month while I tried to figure out what to do about my lease because I found out that it would cost me close to 3 times the car's original worth to give it back and terminate my lease. I finally had it towed out of there to my house. I was planning to tow it to another dealership to have a second diagnosis, but I dfiscovered that the service manager had kept my $500 battery that I had just bought a month before. I got the battery back from him only to discover that he also kept my active air flap system, which he has admitted to but won't pay for my car to be towed back to put it back on. I also discovered that he has done something to my brake system, though I do not know what, exactly. I have no way of knowing what else he tampered with or took out of my vehicle so I can't even get a second opinion with major parts missing and potentially more issues than the ones I have discovered so far. I can't really afford to hire an attorney because I have still been paying my lease payments on a worthless car so I don't go into default and have no standing. Any suggestions on where I should start with this? BBB Complaint Form.cf (2).rtf
  18. How do I have someone prosecuted for perjury?? I have their statement under oath in the form of a certified court reporter's transcript and I have video proving otherwise. I went to the police station but they ignored me after treating me like I was stupid. Thank you.
  19. A black punk 20-30 years old, 160-200 lbs got out of his car, angry at me. Apparently he thought I had called him the N word because he was screaming "call me a n****r again, b*tch!!!" over and over again. He ended up punching me in the jaw and throwing his drink all over me, ruining my vest and souring my clothes. He then threw a can of something at my vehicle as he drove away. My car paint is damaged, my jaw is too, drink got on my lips which scares me, and all over the inside of my vehicle. My high def dash cam wasn't working very well, maybe the heat, but it got some vague characters on his plates. Thing is his front plates were definitely Cali I got the first 4 with my own eyes, for sure, and the back was like oregon or nevada plates. I filed a police report, they are making me wait two weks before they will even look at it. What else can I do to ensure I get justice?? I have no medical insurance and two urgent care centers have turned me away for lack of funds. I have med pay and uninsured coverage on my vehicle but he punched me with his fist when I got out of my car. Also, was I free to knock him out, stun or pepper spray his face, (after he punched me) in hindsight? Thank you.

  22. My landlord presented me with an addendum to my lease which I signed. It required I secure certain professional services for upkeep, extended the notice requirement to 45 days, and increased the rent. I signed it. I later discovered that the effective date did not allow proper notice (60 days to increase rent, 30 days to change the provisions of the lease) according to our state's statutes. Is this addendum binding, as it doesn't conform to statute?
  23. First, if I sue somebody and then their bond expires a month later and I get a judgment a month & 1.5 mo Las Vegas, NV | June 7, 2017 1.5 month after that I get a judgment, it should still be covered by the bond, right? Kinda like insurance, it covers the date of the wrong? (I sued in March, her bond expired in April, I got judgment in May). Second, do I write the bond company and politely ask them to pay and attach a copy of the bond? Or would they then just attempt to appeal it since it was a default judgment for $10,000 in small claims court and the bond is for $10,000? Thanks.
  24. Hello. Do I need to file a fictitious firm name if I am giving my customers (the only people I could forseeably have any liability towards) my full, real name?? I don't think so. Like I have a license by the state under my name to notarize documents and everyone I notarize for has my full name stamped clearly on their documents so technically I use a real name. I thought FFN's were only for utilizing names other than your own. However, what if I make up a company name and use both, alongside one another (always still giving my real name to customers). Then might I need it? I dont make much money would rather not spend what I do have, if possible. Thank you.
  25. First time using this website so Im not sure that Im doing this right. My question is can a landlord tell tenants that they can only smoke cigarettes inside of their apartments with the door closed. They will not smoke in front of their unit where they have their patio chairs or any where other than the inside of their own unit. Their will no longer be ashtrays outside of their apartments. I might add that this is a government apartment complex for seniors or disabled people, and their rent is based on their income. Some of these tenants have lived here for 10 or more years.
