  1. 1 - You didn't have to exceed the speed limit to get to the rest area so the citation was proper. 2 - If you didn't pay the fine then the fees and hold are also proper.
  2. I suggest that the six of you pool your money and consult one ERISA expert.
  3. It's not your appellate decision that's costing you jobs, it's you record as an habitual offender. Employers see that record on the criminal background check, they don't go looking for appellate case decisions. As for your appellate decision being used in law schools, it's one of hundreds, maybe thousands, that are used as case studies in law schools.
  4. This is one of those "more to the story" things.
  5. Take photos of the conditions. I hope you put all your notices in writing.
  6. "I was told" is the most dangerous phrase in the English language. Then report it to the appropriate agency for removal. Or, keep it and hope nobody claims it. Make sure you make a photo inventory before you touch anything, just in case.
  7. No, you don't own it and you have to be real careful about trying to own it, lest the rightful owner come after you. If the property was not owned by the seller then the seller could not convey it to you. Which begs the question, why didn't you know about it before you bought the property or during the inspection contingency period or before close of escrow. Didn't you bother to inspect the property? Virtually every city and county in the country has an ordinance addressing abandoned vehicles on private property. Look up yours and follow the instructions on reporting it and having it removed.
  8. For the unpaid rent, not for the loss of the home. It would have been up to the owner to enforce the rental agreement while alive. If he didn't, there might not be an actionable claim for rent (laches).
  9. Plan documents. Memos. Correspondence. Anything that might make your benefits a contractual obligation of the employer. You might also talk to an attorney who specializes in ERISA, the federal law regarding retirement plans. Seems to me that there must be something that protects you from losing benefits that you have already acquired. I could be wrong.
  10. The best answer should come from the disability agency. However, my guess is that he not file a second claim until the WC doctor releases him for work. Then, if he can't work because he is not yet recovered from the surgery, it would be time to file the second claim. Again, that's just my guess. Bob needs to confirm that independently of strangers on the internet.
  11. Yes. Takes a few minutes on the IRS website. https://www.irs.gov/businesses/small-businesses-self-employed/how-to-apply-for-an-ein Yes, if the house was solely in your Dad's name. No, if the house was owned jointly with right of survivorship. Read the deed. Only your Mom can answer that question. Were you paying the mortgage company or your Mom? If you were paying the mortgage company properly, the house shouldn't have gone to foreclosure. No. It belongs to your Dad's estate, which appears to need probate before you get anything. You can check with the probate court to see if probate was opened at some point. If it was, the will should be in the case file. If it wasn't you can open probate under intestacy and you may be able to claim a share of his estate, if there is anything worth claiming.
  12. To you or to current employees? That's the first question. Check it to see if you misunderstood something. If, indeed, they are discontinuing your benefits, you will need a thorough review of any documents issued by the employer regarding the retirement benefits. Obviously, we can't do that from here.
  13. You try re-reading it. Your questions: Followed this: And you called your children's behavior the "major issues." So I addressed your "major issues."
  14. Yes, I have lots of experience with something like that. It's called disciplining your children. You should try it. There's no excuse for their behavior when they are home alone. Since you are the custodial parent and they live there, there is plenty of punishment you can dish out. As long as you accept the behavior unchallenged you have nothing to complain about. PS: Nothing wrong with your ex dropping your kids off when you aren't home. They are certainly old enough to be on their own.
  15. Obviously, they can because they did. Sorry, but you made the mistake of relying on what you were told on the phone without verifying it by reading your 401(k) plan and loan documents. The loan repayment requirement is based on the IRS 401(k) rules. I doubt it.
  16. Sorry, didn't read it. But if you want to know the criteria for determining if you are IC or employee, the IRS website has lots of information and will also assist you in determining which one you were. https://www.irs.gov/businesses/small-businesses-self-employed/independent-contractor-defined https://www.irs.gov/businesses/small-businesses-self-employed/independent-contractor-self-employed-or-employee https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/employee-or-independent-contractor-know-the-rules
  17. What were your reasons for buying into an HOA? I'm wondering what was so attractive to you that you willingly gave up your freedom to use your property as you wished.
  18. You're not. "Indefinite unpaid leave" means you've been laid off, fired, canned, given the axe. It's also a scam that employers pull so that naïve people don't file for unemployment compensation. You've already lost a great deal of money by believing it. File now. You should have been looking for another job from the getgo. That you haven't gotten any answers speaks volumes. Nobody wants it.
  19. Signal Hill, I see that the link I posted is no good. Try the following link and click on "View Code." https://www.amlegal.com/codes/client/signal-hill_ca/ The abandoned vehicle code refers to a "city abatement officer" whoever that may be. Up to the poster to figure out who that is.
  20. You are trying very hard to make this the crime of the century and the perpetrator public enemy number one. Neither is the case. It's a violation of Signal Hill's (if that's where you live) city ordinances. See Title 10 Chapter 10.46 and learn what you can do about it. http://library.amlegal.com/nxt/gateway.dll/California/signal_hill_ca/cityofsignalhillcaliforniamunicipalcode?f=templates$fn=default.htm$3.0$vid=amlegal:signalhill_ca
  21. Have no idea. Still don't know what happened. If you aren't comfortable with posting the information all I can suggest is that you consult an attorney and review your options. Consults are often free.
  22. Your post is incomprehensible until you tell us what happened to you. Details count. And it's HIPAA, not HIPPA. This is HIPPA: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hippa
  23. Yes. The loss was due to your negligence: leaving the doors unlocked with the store unattended. I suggest you schedule your potty breaks throughout the day and lock the doors for a few minutes when you go.
