    I know I wasn't injured but surely there must be some regulations in place to prevent this right?


    No, and regulations don't prevent things from happening.


    Unless you were damaged as a result of what happened, your post raises no legal issue.

    This is not the hotel's fault, it's your friend's fault.

    The hotel has no reason to believe that you DON'T know her, if she comes to the desk and identifies herself as being with your party.


    This is not on the hotel. This is on your "friend".


    I could not disagree more.  Unless the OP has an androgynous name (e.g., Pat or Terry) and the OP's friend claimed to be the OP, then it absolutely is the hotel's fault.  While the hotel may have had no reason to believe that the OP didn't know this woman, the hotel also had no reason to believe the OP knew the woman.  Simply walking up to the front desk and saying, "hi, I'm with Terry," should not result in Terry being checked in and the person being handed room keys.  No decent hotel would allow that.  I can't remember the last time I checked into a hotel without having to show a photo ID and credit card.


    But, that doesn't change the fact that, unless the OP suffered damages, there's no legal issue here.  The hotel employee who allowed this to happen, however, ought to be in fear of losing his/her job.

    What exactly does "Forfeited" a bond mean whom does this?


    The court may order a bail bond forfeited if the defendant fails to appear at a scheduled court date.



    22 hours ago, Mcneather said:

    Aren't the bondsman supposed to help inform you of upcoming court dates?


    No.  It's your and your lawyer's job to know when your court dates are scheduled.  Bondsmen almost never know when court dates are scheduled.

    And when told and in touch with bondsman correct address he repeatedly sends mail to wrong address?


    Despite your use of a question mark, this sentence does not appear to be a question and is barely coherent.

    The bondsman, sometimes called a bounty hunter


    Bondsmen and bounty hunters are not the same thing.  In the bail bond industry, the term bondsman is typically used to refer to the local agent who, pursuant to a direct or indirect contract with a surety company, sells bail bonds to criminal defendants.  While some bondsmen handle recovery themselves, most contract with bail recovery agents (i.e., bounty hunters) to handle fugitive recovery.

    In the agreement the friend put her property up as collateral for the $11,000.00 .


    Please explain exactly what this means.  Please quote the exact language in the agreement by which the former "friend put her property up as collateral."  Please change or omit any names.  If the collateral is real property, please do not include the address, but please describe the property sufficiently that we know what sort of property it is.  Please also identify your state of residence and that of your former friend (if different).  Does the agreement contain a provision that it is governed by a particular state's laws?  If so, what state?  Finally, please explain what you did, if anything, to perfect your interest in the collateral (e.g., filing/recording a deed of trust or mortgage or a UCC-1 financing statement).

    What do I do now ?


    I have a hard time believing you didn't know that you could sue your former friend.  Whether you have any recourse beyond that will depend on your responses to my inquiries above.

     I have 3 receipts that total that amount sand none say "no refund" on the bottom.

    A seller does not need to say "no refund."  As a matter of law, refunds are only available if expressly offered as part of the sales contract or some law expressly requires refunds for a particular situation.  If the contract/receipt is silent about refunds and no law mandates refunds, then, all sales are final.

    You can contact the police.  Whether they'll do anything or what they'll do is impossible for anyone here to predict.

    Also, even though this is being investigated by state agency, can I file a lawsuit against this person or am I wasting everyones time?


    Everyone's time?  Of course not.  Very few people will have any involvement in this situation.  And yes, you can file a lawsuit.  However, how did you pay for this stuff?  If you paid via credit card, the first thing to do would be to submit a dispute to your credit card issuer.  I think it is customary that this can be done within 60 days after the date of the statement on which the disputed charge appears.  Information about disputing a charge should be on the back of your credit card statement and in your credit card agreement.

    how can one determine if one is breaking employment laws and misclassifying ICs when they should be employees.


    By reviewing the employment laws.  Since you didn't identify your state, we can't point you to anything in particular.  There are, however, probably thousands of articles that you could review with a simple google search for "difference between employee and independent contractor."

    Can the landlord be sued for still collecting our rent and failing to notify us about the foreclosure, and selling of the property?


    Anyone can sue anyone for anything, but you'd lose if you were to do this.  Your former landlord had no obligation to notify you about the foreclosure or the foreclosure sale.

    my mother died and left me the beneficiary of every thing she owned


    Please explain exactly what this means.  There are very few assets for which one can designate a beneficiary (financial accounts being the primary asset for which this is possible).

    the case people who least her car to grabbed it what do i do to get it back


    I have no idea who "the case people" might be.  Assuming "least" was supposed to be "leased," whether you have any ability "to get it back" depends on the terms of the lease and how you respond to my inquiry above.  It may also depend on the applicable state law, so you should also identify the relevant state.

    My girlfriend & I aren't getting along and we have a baby together. Do I have the right to take my child & go places & stay places without his mom while we go through the custody process or will I get in trouble taking our child to do things or go stay places without her being with?


    First,  you should have started your own thread rather than tagging onto someone else's thread.


    Second, the answer in the prior post is wrong (or at least premature).  We need more information.


    I what state do you live?  Is that the same state where the child was born?


    Has your paternity ever been established?  If so, how was it established?


    Is there any court order concerning custody, visitation and support?  If so, please summarize it.

    my daughter entered the intersection on a green arrow that then went to all green so she was stopped in the intersection when the light was green.


    That doesn't make much sense.  If she entered on a green arrow, she should have been able to complete her turn.  Having a signal go from green arrow to green light -- with no intervening yellow arrow is a recipe for accidents.  Is that really how this signal works?

    Daughter 3 was named executor


    Just to be clear, was she appointed by the probate court to serve as executor?  Or is she merely nominated in your mother's will to serve in that capacity?

    What options do I have for obtaining information on the status of the will?


    If the will has been submitted for probate, then you should be able to view the file at the courthouse.  However, it's possible that there won't be much of anything relevant in there after the order appointing your sister as executor.


    Ultimately, if the executor isn't doing her job, you can seek to have her removed by the court and request that someone else be appointed.

    Sure there is...



    I can only assume that the OP wrote these two sentences in paragraph order.


    Uh huh....  Assuming that left turns were legal at the intersection and that the daughter did not have a green turn arrow, the OP described that her daughter entered the intersection with the intent to turn left, which is legal.  The daughter was obligated to wait where she was until it was safe to make the left turn.  Apparently, traffic heading the opposite direction was such that it did not become safe until after the light that the daughter was facing had turned red.  That is not "running a red light" or otherwise illegal.


    That said, it's still possible that the 30% liability that the other driver's insurer assigned to the OP's daughter is reasonable since it obviously was not safe for the daughter to turn.  However, it's not possible for us to assess that intelligently based on the information provided.

    What recourse do we have in this situation?


    Unless your daughter is a minor or the vehicle belongs to you, "we" have no recourse.  Your daughter can either accept the offer or make a counteroffer for a higher amount.  If she and the other driver's insurer cannot come to agreement, then her recourse will be to sue the other driver.


    In what state did this happen?


    Was your daughter injured, or is the only damage to the vehicle?

    your daughter was also running a red light


    There's no factual basis in the original post for this conclusion.

  15. The possibility of criminal prosecution cannot legally be used as leverage in a divorce.


    If she wants a divorce, then she needs to talk with a divorce attorney.  Whether she tells her husband that she founds the cameras is obviously up to her.

  16. You really ought to proofread before hitting the "post" button.

    A case of what?


    It's not very clear what your tenant was doing on the pasture.  However, if the lease is over, has the tenant vacated the property?  If so, and if the tenant failed to install some equipment or failed to leave it in working order, you can sue for breach of contract.


    Not really sure if there's more to this, but I encourage you to consult with a local attorney for advice.

  17. Generally speaking, a party to a pending divorce case is prohibited from removing minor children from the state without a court order or written permission from the other parent.


    If your case is pending in Indiana and your kids are in Michigan with your husband, I can think of no conceivable reason why you moving across the river would be a problem.

  18. Using that image would be blatant trademark infringement, but you aren't going to "get your butt sued back into the stone age" -- even if you actually use the flyer.  What will happen, however, is that you'll get a cease and desist letter (while I agree with "Tax_Counsel's" comment, your posting the flyer here may well generate the C&D letter).  If, after receipt of that letter, you don't remove the infringing image, that is when you'll get sued.


    As a parent of a band kid (and a lifelong musician), I agree with "cbg" that this image will only detract from your business because it implies a lack of seriousness, and its tone runs contrary to the rest of the flyer.  Without that part, it's a good flyer.

    What was done "before her passing"?  Your signature on what?  Since you apparently have not been appointed by a probate court as executor/administrator/personal representative of the estate, you have no authority to do anything with your mother's assets.
