  1. The first link is to a statute that allows for a complaint "to a dog control officer or police officer of the appropriate municipality. Such officer shall immediately inform the complainant of his or her right to commence a proceeding as provided in subdivision two of this section and, if there is reason to believe the dog is a dangerous dog, the officer shall forthwith commence such proceeding himself or herself." Subdivision 2 discusses the procedure for making a complaint in a municipal or justice court. The second link is to a published opinion that is longer than I'm willing to read. Also, FYI, I'm not in NY and, as far as I know, neither is any other regular at this site. Here's a link to the web site of a NY lawyer who purports to be "the dog bite king of the legal universe." It seems to have a pretty good discussion of the relevant law. As far as the duty, again, since the attack happened when your dog trespassed on the neighbor's property, I'm skeptical that you could sue successfully, but by all means consult with a local attorney.
  2. What would make you think we need or want to see nasty pictures of your dog's injuries? I'm not familiar with any "dangerous dog" laws in NY, but your dog trespassed on the neighbor's property, so it's unlikely that you could successfully sue for the damage to your dog. You can contact the local animal control officer.
  3. Maybe I missed it since you used no punctuation or capital letters here (other than "I" and "GPS," but it doesn't appear there's a question here. Do you have a question?
  4. The only person who can intelligently assess the merits of a potential medical malpractice case is a local attorney who specializes in that area and who has reviewed the relevant medical records.
  5. What's an "Artesia doctor"? Also, you didn't ask a question, so I'm not sure what the purpose of your post is.
  6. So...I'm guessing that you and the child's mother were never married. Correct? If so, was your paternity ever established? If so, how was it established? FYI, "my name is on the birth certificate" is not an answer to that question. Also, in what state do you live (and, if different, in what state was the child born)? Not really sure what all this means. If there's a custody/visitation order in place that the mother is violating, then you need to enforce it. If no such order exists, then you need to petition the court to get one. I suggest you confer immediately with a local family law attorney.
  7. For starters, was your paternity ever established? If so, how was it established? Are there existing court orders relating to custody and visitation? Your statements that you "never went to court" and that you "both have custody" are conflicting. The bottom line, though, is that, unless there is a court order that prohibits her from taking the kids with her when she visits her husband, she is entirely within her rights to take them.
  8. Seek appropriate medical treatment. If you're thinking you might have some legal claim against the hotel, that's unlikely. Oil in parking lots is common, and you're supposed to watch where you're walking. Nevertheless, the hotel's insurance coverage almost certainly has a component that will pay some amount (maybe $5-10k) for medical expenses regardless of legal liability, so you should inquire with the manager about that.
  9. It wasn't stolen. She's certainly going to be asked why it took her seven-plus months after the guy's death to do something about this. The explanation you gave above is pretty weak, but if that's all she's got.... And yes, calling the police and/or the insurance company would be a good idea
  10. Who are 'they"? If you're talking about the insurance company that the other driver identified, why would an insurance company that didn't have a policy covering the driver offer anything? The most obvious option would be to make a claim against his own collision coverage (assuming he carried it). Unless your son is a minor or you own the truck he was driving, there is no "we." No way $100/day is reasonable to rent a pickup truck.
  11. Not sure it matters, but here's a bunch of things that "ACC" might stand for. Care to share with us which one you intended? If a person did do something, then it is axiomatic that he/she can do that thing. Whether what you described is appropriate depends on the terms of your HOA's CC&Rs and by-laws. However, I suspect "adjusterjack" is correct.
  12. Not any county employee's responsibility to tell you that or even consider it. An answer to what? There's no way anyone here could possibly know whether re-zoning a piece of property in an unknown municipality in one of Idaho's 44 counties (each of which has different zoning laws) from "agriculture" to "rural residential" will or won't change your or anyone else's property taxes. If this is something that concerns you, you need to consult with a local attorney.
  13. What would possess you to write a lengthy paragraph explaining the concept of "catch-22"? Umm...is this a "real life legal situation" or is just an "example"? Can't be both. What's a "car stalk"? Also, there is no "loophole" in any law in any state that legalizes torture. This makes zero sense. Huh? If you walk the streets naked for more than a few minutes, you're going to be arrested, so I seriously doubt you've been doing it for six months. Unless you can write something more coherent, I can only conclude that you need to seek treatment from a mental health professional.
  14. Just because you and your attorney tell someone to stop contacting you doesn't mean that person/entity has an obligation to stop. Federal law (as cited in the prior response) provides a means by which you can limit the extent that a third-party debt collector may contact you. That law does not apply to an original creditor. I don't know if Kentucky has a similar law that would apply to an original creditor. I'm not sure what sort of "complaint" you have in mind, but you can file anything you like.
  15. I'm a little confused about your question. For the last two decades (at least), in order to get gas from a pump, you either have to put your card in a slot at the pump and get it approved before you pump or you got into the office before pumping and say, "I'd like $X on pump #5." In the former case, if you're done after pumping $2 worth of gas, then that's what you pay, and there'd never be a need to go "in[to] the office" and talk to someone. In the latter case, if you tell the person you want $2 and he/she says there's a $16.50 minimum, then you know that up front. I'm therefore trying to figure out why you would be pumping first and then going back to the cashier. I'm also curious where you found a gas station in 2019 where an attendant will pump the gas for you. Regardless, if you're told up front that there's a minimum, then there's nothing wrong with that. On the other hand, if you're not told until after the fact that there's a minimum charge, that wouldn't be enforceable.
  16. The only way to answer this intelligently would be to read the contract that contains the "income based repayment plan." Since I have no ability to do that, I'll simply point out that the term "income" is much broader than "salary."
  17. Huh? What "income based payments on debt" are you talking about? Yes. If you're the sole owner of the S corporation, it would be disregarded for tax purposes. I strongly encourage you to consult with a local attorney for advice before doing something you don't understand.
  18. According to you, the proper step (singular) is to "provide written notice at least 90 days before moving." Is there some reason why you think there might be something else? According to you, "[n]othing in the paper says [you] cant move." I assume "the paper" refers to your divorce decree. Sounds like you have already decided to move. Is there any reason not to let your ex no now that you plan to move so that you can try to work something out in advance?
  19. You obviously have a defense since you outlined it in your post, so what exactly does this question mean? What you said when, and to whom?
  20. Quite possibly. You can submit a complaint with the HHS for the apparent HIPAA violation. Actually, he shouldn't have answered the question at all seeing as how the person asking was not your spouse.
  21. Please realize that, not only was this a terrible idea, it was also a breach of the rental car contract and, quite possibly, a crime (since you rented a car and represented that no one but you would be driving but knew at the time of renting the car that you intended to let someone on the "do not rent" list drive it). Moreover, it means your own liability insurer isn't going to provide coverage, and it wouldn't surprise me if you're now on the "do not rent" list. Well, then you're going to need to figure out a way to pay the rental car company. The chances of you winning a small claims suit against this guy seem pretty good (assuming you can find him in order to serve him), but I agree that you probably have almost no chance of actually collecting.
  22. Not saying I think you're wrong, but anyone who is in the business of repairing cars and doesn't carry liability insurance is a long list of unkind names.
  23. Cool...do you have a question that hasn't already been addressed (or any point whatsoever)?
  24. Let me get this straight. You rented a car. Someone else drive and caused damage to the car. I assume "unauthorized driver means that he wasn't listed on the rental contract as an authorized driver, but does it also mean that he used the car without your permission? Or was he using the car with your permission? Your response to "adjusterjack's" question about this issue is ambiguous. Just also to confirm: the accident was reported tot he rental car company, right? I assume you meant to type, "In addition to the damage to the car. . . ." Has he (or his liability insurer) paid for the damage to the car? What does "the cost of the days the car was rented" mean? Are you talking about what you paid to rent the car? Or are you talking about the rental car company's damages for loss of use of the vehicle while it was being repaired? You can take him and me and the Queen of England to court. Anyone can take anyone to court. Heck, one guy even sued Satan. Depends on your answers to the questions I asked.
