  1. Then please demonstrate why we were wrong. Your post cited no statutory or case law, so you've demonstrated nothing other than an ability to state a contrary opinion.
  2. You can be charged if the prosecuting attorney (not the officer) believes there is probable cause that you committed a crime. That the child was left in the care of a responsible adult is something that ought to be brought to the attention of all involved. If true, it should prevent a conviction.
  3. Seriously...these posts are a mess. For example: Who has papers? What papers? What does "that says from ar connect" mean? What hospital records? Who was "showed the hospital records? Who are "they"? What does "PTR" mean, and what does it mean to withdraw PTR? What's your involvement in this situation? If your point is that the person who was mistakenly released was given additional time for being an absconder, then that person needs to be speaking with an attorney about fixing that.
  4. To the extent I can understand this jumbled mess, I would first assume it would be incredibly rare (bordering on almost never happens) for a father and son to be incarcerated in the same facility. And even if that were to happen, the likelihood that one might mistake one for the other would be equally rare. Regardless, I would assume the "procedure" would be apprehend the mistakenly released person and return him to custody. Were you thinking the prison authorities might just throw up their arms and say, "oops!" Ummm...who are "they"?
  5. Why? Here's what you posted in the other thread: "How can I get a copy of my rental agreement other than the landlord"? As I told you in that other thread, the answer is to look in your file cabinet where you keep your copy of the lease. Is there a reason why you might think anyone other than you or your landlord would have a copy?
  6. Why did you tag this onto a completely unrelated thread on a board that has nothing to do with landlord-tenant issues? That said, the answer is to look in your file cabinet where you keep your copy of the lease.
  7. Of course not. You're both getting $X in benefits. The difference is that, because they don't need your employer to provide health coverage, all of their benefits are coming in the form of wages, which your benefits are divided between wages and health coverage. It has nothing to do with marital status. Rather, it has to do with them having other health coverage. They could just as easily be single and still covered on a parent's health insurance.
  8. I assume this was a credit sale. Correct? What made you believe that this company didn't report? Was the company aware of this before you made the purchase? Does the contract contain any sort of agreement about not reporting? Does it say that it won't do so? Subject to how you answer my questions above, it almost certainly is. Again, subject to how you answer my questions, unlikely. Likely, pay the account or refinance.
  9. LOL. This is a multi-million dollar company. The folks at the top aren't going to deal with a minor customer service issue.
  10. In any future posts, please pay better attention to proper capitalization and punctuation so that we can more easily read and understand what you write. I assume your "friend" was wanted for one or more rather serious crimes and was considered to be dangerous. Regardless, I'm sure you "can do" lots of things, the most obvious being that you should seek help from a mental health professional. If you're thinking you have some basis to sue the police because of this, you don't.
  11. The AG isn't going to do anything about a single incident of a potential product defect. The AG might do something if it has had dozens or hundreds of complaints about this product.
  12. If there were a reservation for umpteen rooms under one person's name, that might be a different story.* However, it appears that the OP had a single room reserved under his/her name. If that's the case, no hotel should have checked in the OP or given keys out to anyone but the registered guest. Simply saying, "I'm checking in for So-and-So's party," should result in a response along the lines of, "I'm sorry. I can't check you in because your name isn't on the reservation. Mr./Ms. So-and-So will have to be here." * At the moment, I'm coordinating a trip for a large group of high school students. Our hotel reservation is under the school/group's name with my name as the contact. We have to provide a list of guests a month ahead of time, and the hotel is not giving out keys to anyone but me (or someone I designate in advance). Again, though, no damages = no legal issue, and since the OP hasn't returned and claimed to have been damaged in some way (indeed, the original post expressly disclaims any "injury"), this is all academic.
  13. The same questions as what? Your post doesn't mention any questions. Probably, and I strongly suspect you'll be offered some payment. Given that it's been over three weeks, I suggest a follow up call. While it's possible that the manufacturer could try to low-ball the OP for this reason, I think it's a bit of a stretch. Given that this sounds like less than $1k in damage, I doubt the company will play around with it.
  14. And you and your boss are based where? For the time being, I'll assume you're in the U.S. What you've described is not in any way illegal. That French wasn't a "required skill" doesn't mean you're guaranteed that not knowing it won't pose roadblocks. That being said, I agree with the prior response.
  15. You're joking, right? Your proposed defense to a speeding ticket is that you were tired? No one with even an ounce of common sense would think that could be a viable defense.
  16. You seem not to want to do the most obvious thing that can be done (move). You can, if you like, sue your neighbor for nuisance.
  17. Not really sure what this question is supposed to mean. If I substitute the word "legal" for the word "ok," then the answer is that everything is legally unless made expressly illegal by some law. If you're asking whether it's legal for your boss to be part of the process, the answer is yes (assuming, as mentioned in the prior response, that we're talking about a private employer and not some government agency). If done intentionally, then this would be illegal (unless the position involves spying on a women's sports team or something like that). No one on an internet message board has any insight into what might be "worth it" to you.
  18. The post is tagged as relating to New York.

    You didn't ask a question, so it's unclear what the purpose of your post is. Please elaborate as to what this means. So...for some unstated period of time, you moved out of the "space" you were renting in order to live with a friend. Correct? How long was that? Did you tell your landlord that you'd be doing this and that it was only temporary? Did you take all of your belongings with you? "Home owner"? Meaning your landlord? When did she say this? You don't have a key?
  20. I'm going to throw your own words back at you: read the actual law, not just an article about the law. While it does, indeed, seem that this law was passed in 1999, I can find no evidence that it still exists. There is no Title 13.7 of Part 4 of Division 3 of the Civil Code or a section 2870 or 2871. Nor is there a Title 11.65 in Part 3 of the Code of Civil Procedure or sections 1776-1784. Also, the reference in the article to the Vandeberg case makes no sense since that case had nothing to do with this issue. Nor could I find a case that cited to this legislation. If you can find some actual law, I'll take a look. That jury instruction "is for use in an 'excess judgment' case; that is one in which judgment was against the insured for an amount over the policy limits, after the insurer rejected a settlement demand within policy limits." It has nothing to do with third-party bad-faith actions.
  21. You could (anyone can sue anyone for anything), but you'll quickly lose and be required to pay the insurance company's court costs. California does not recognize a cause of action for bad-faith against an insurer arising out of a third-party claim. Your recourse is to do what I previously suggested or sue the other driver. You can also submit a complaint to the California Department of Insurance.
  22. I assume you're talking about the other driver's liability insurance carrier. Correct? If you can't get the other driver's insurer to put more money on the table and aren't willing to accept what's being offered, then this is your only option. Depending on the laws of your unidentified state, it is unlikely that a bad faith cause of action by a third-party claimant such as yourself is recognized as valid. Even if you could do this, I seriously doubt you have the ability to self-litigate against an insurance company that will be represented by legal counsel. Then take the $10k. Then there's got to be some reason why the insurer isn't offering the $15k policy limits. It's not just doing it for s***s and giggles. If I were you, I'd consult with a few local PI attorneys and see if they think they can be of any value to you. As noted above, while a lawyer charging a 1/3 contingent fee would be of no value to you, it's possible you can find one willing to accept less than that for a limited scope of work.
