  1. If your question is "Is it legal for a company to discipline a supervisor for loss of money due to acts of his subordinates?" the answer depends on the nature of the discipline. If the discipline chosen, for instance, counselling or reprimand, is otherwise legal, the answer is yes. If the discipline is not legal, for example withholding of wages otherwise due, the answer is no.
  2. Please explain further. According to your post the person only went to court once but was "booked" twice. Why was the person "booked" twice. If there was only one conviction, that is all that should be considered.
  3. You may be interested to know there is no such thing as "civil extortion." Pleas see, Bass v. Morgan, 516 So. 2d 1011 (Fla. 3d D.C.A. 1987) . Extortion is a criminal act but it does not give rise to a civil action for damages, compensatory or punitive.
  4. Do you have any documentation of your agreement to purchase the vehicle, such as a purchase agreement or, at least, a cancelled check. I would take a more direct approach, Thai is, I would consult the police and tell them you believe you may have been cheated out of the payment you made and ask them to determine if the vehicle is stolen.
  5. Since this involves a single city or water utility, I would suggest you consult an attorney in that city for advice. I would be surprised if a municipal water supplier is required to run a water main to an individual house for free upon request.
  6. So, the medical record says you denied a pelvic exam and the doctor included a chaperone because you did not calm down. Why would you expect those statements would make another doctor refuse to treat you? Incidentally, why were you agitated?
  7. What do the "rules" say about eviction? Are the rules stated or incorporated in the deeds to the residences?
  8. My brother told me a story about a similar incident he was involved in. The suspect refused to hold the board containing his name and identification number up in front of him as he was being photographed. So, my brother handcuffed the suspect behind his back and yelled to another officer, "Get me a couple of thumbtacks." The suspect elected to hold up the signboard.
  9. A copy of the petition must be served with a citation to answer the petition. Rule 99.a. Is the tax lien for a period prior to the time involved in the hearing?
  10. Excuse me! It appeared to me the antagonist was Bo, your foreman.
  11. Your termination did not violate any of your civil rights. Unless you have a contract requiring your termination be with cause or you are party to a collective bargaining organization, you are out of luck.
  12. Trying to figure out why people are not designating the state. The post creation page is perfectly clear. However, the indication the state is "REQUIRED" is obviously incorrect. Oh well! See below: Create New Topic Title REQUIRED Tag State Add Tag REQUIRED
  13. It seems like anonymous state postingas have increased exponentially within the last two or three months. I wonder if there has been a change in the posting input. I will try posting something to see what it looks like.
  14. Why is it no one identifies their state anymore?

    I am reading your story and don't have any idea why the house was demolished. Also, who owns the house and who was living there?
  16. I don't see any civil rights violations. I see lots of supervisor-worker conflict and lots of passive agression on your part. It appears you were gettingyour vehicle to leave thhe job site after you were terminated, I would agree you were not an employee when the door struck you in the back. I would not take your case.
  17. You and your ex? apparently entered into a joint venture that involved proposed flipping of a piece of realty. In that transaction it is unlikely, although not impossible, that your ex? and you entered into a real estate agency agreement. That means she was (probably) not acting as your agent in the transaction. What that means, in my opinion, is that she was not acting as a licensed real estate broker or agent with respect to you. Therefore, the fact that she is a licensed real estate professional is probably irrelevant. The real estate licensing board should not be involved in this situation at all. But, you might still file some sort of complaint if you can prove she lied to you.
  18. I'm trying to wrap my head around the question. The doctor agreed that she will not treat any patient she saw during her employment unless it involves patients suffering from an acute problem (which would obviously go away in a reasonable period of time). But she intends to solicit patients she has seen during the course of her employment. Why would she solicit patients she has covenanted not to treat?
  19. The validity of the landlord's remedy depends on whether the tenency is less than for one year and whether the notice given is the second notice within a year. If a tenant was served with a previous notice to pay or quit , the second notice is final and cannot be remedied by payment of the rent. See 704.17(1p)(b). The effect of the second notice is to terminate the tenancy without recourse. So, if this is the second 14 day notice, it is appropriate to order the tenant to vacate and to file the necessary court documents to enforce the eviction the next day.
  20. Proof that the signatures on the will are not the signatures of the persons who are alleged to have signed it; proof that the testator was incompetent at the time he or she signed it, including that he or she did not know the identity of his or her probable heirs and/or that he or she was not aware of the extent and nature of his or her estate; proof that the testator's willingness to sign the will was overcome because he or she was under duress; proof there was a later will that revoked the purported will.
  21. Maybe they have an agreement with PRL or maybe here is little or no possibility of confusion between their logo and the PRL logo. What is the point of trying to make your argument here? We have warned you that you may back into chainsaw if you produce clothing with a logo resembling the Ralph Lauren logo or use the word "polo" on clothing not related to an actual polo club. If you think we are wrong, go ahead. BTW, I would be interested in your claim that the african-american community is a major player in the Ralph Lauren Polo demographic.
