  1. You cannot charge interest (or anything else) that isn't specified in your contract. That's basic contract law which you can study at: If you find unreported royalties and the other party won't pay, you sue for it. When you get a judgment, you would be entitled to post-judgment interest on the award until it's paid. You can seek pre-judgment interest as part of your claim, but getting it is iffy.
  2. I am guessing that you meant "boat load" of money.
  3. Your employer has the court order. Get a copy. Go to the courthouse and read the case file. Get copies of everything in it. You will likely find that your were sued and there was a default judgment against you.
  4. The how is explained by the did. But let me try to explain it anyway. Any time any government agency anywhere gets, or learns of, a non-compliance with local ordinances, the agency FIRST cites the offender and gives the offender a certain amount of time to correct the non-compliance. That's called "due process" and we all (even you) have a right to it. "Due process" also allows for the giving of extensions upon request if the agency is convinced that such an extension is appropriate. There could be many reasons that your neighbor was granted the extension. I wouldn't care to speculate. Perhaps the borough representative could tell you if you asked. I would love to make a note of it for future reference if you would kindly cite me a statute number so I can look it up. I keep links to all sorts of laws and ordinances so that I know what I am talking about when I speak of them. PG1067 IS a lawyer though I am not. We are both trying to answer your questions as best we can given the information that you have provided. Has the borough adopted it by statute? That's important. Perhaps if you identify the borough we'd be able to look up your local ordinances and make more helpful comments. The bottom line is that your neighbor may eventually be punished for the condition of his property or the condition may eventually be resolved favorably. It's just not going to happen right this minute and there isn't likely to be anything you can do about the delay except take care of your mouse situation on your own for the time being.
  5. There is no such requirement. Really? Wish I had a buck for every time I read something like that. I'm guessing that having to herd 38 teenagers made the officers a bit curt especially since the odds are in favor of at least a couple of them giving lip to the officers. They'll get over it. From a legal standpoint there is not likely to be any monetary compensation for missing the senior prom. The parent who rented the bus should get a refund but that's about it.
  6. Apparently yes, because the borough GAVE him the extension. What difference does it make? You obviously aren't going to get the borough to speed things up. You are. Isn't that obvious. You can file a "private nuisance" lawsuit against the owner. Google it. You'll find that you'll have to spend a lot of money on attorney fees that you probably won't get back and even if you win a monetary judgment, the other owner is a low life that you probably aren't going to be able to collect a nickel from. No. The borough has sovereign immunity to this kind of lawsuit. Besides, the borough isn't doing anything wrong to you. Yes. Sometimes things happen to people through no fault of their own and it costs them money. It happens. If you want to save money on pest control buy your own mouse traps from Home Depot.
  7. The reality is that the agencies are likely immune to lawsuits for this kind of mistake. They told you why they are holding him. They made an arrest and can't un-arrest him.
  8. You're being charged with a crime, you get yourself a lawyer. If the warrant was faulty, your lawyer will know what to do. Otherwise nothing else matters.
  9. It's still a landlord tenant matter. You will have to give the occupant proper written notice to leave and then seek eviction through the courts. You can try calling the police and see how that works. But they are likely to tell you the same thing.
  10. Yes. Then the homeowner's insurance company will deny the claim and defend.
  11. 1 - I have to agree with the LL that you are making a mountain out of a molehill about the closet thing. Get over it. 2 - There is no FL law requiring you to be at home when the repairs are done. You can study the whole landlord tenant statute at: 3 - The plants under the tree are in your way? Go to Home Depot and get one of these and a pair of garden gloves: This is just too small to fight over. Maybe they don't hassle her with small stuff. Maybe you should adjust your attitude. Nobody likes a whiney tenant.
  12. Obviously they can because they did. Is that really what you wanted to ask. I don't know where you got the idea that it's OK to refuse a cop's request for ID when you are passed out in a car with the motor running but I hope you realize it's rather stupid. I've read a bunch of posts from other stupid people that refuse ID and do the "Am I detained" routine only to find that their day takes a big turn for the worse. You could have avoided the night's ordeal by just handing over your license instead of acting suspicious and giving them a valid reason to roust you. I hope you have good medical insurance because you are likely to get a big bill from the hospital.
  13. If you know the name of the online bank the obvious place to start is on the website's "contact us" link. Then call up and ask what to do. Most banks have departments that handle estate issues.
  14. No. It's just your notice that you have been charged. Doesn't matter if you sign it or not.
  15. Maybe. But nobody is getting prosecuted for it. The age of consent is 17 in Illinois. All you can do is hope she is smart enough to insist on contraceptive devices so she doesn't end up pregnant.
