Q: 

Should A Writ of Quo Warranto Be Filed By Arizona?

A:  It should be used against our president for not upholding the rights of legal americans. Why would anyone in their right mind fight for in Iraq and Afghanistan when we don''t even have a sovereign country? When anyone can walk into the country and demand rights this country is lost. How despicable the president of Mexico is for expecting us to take all his people while they get money from the USA and drain or resources. What country would allow citizens of the USA to demonstrate in their country and demand anything. the democrats have lost my vote and I hope the vote of all legal Americans. Why is an organization like La Raza ( the race) allowed to operate in this country. YES....

Q: 

Can you get 30 day tags on a deceased persons vehicle?

A:  what does the handwritten will say? and it does not take a year to get an attorney, no you cannot get a 30 day tag to drive a dead mans car, he obviously didnt pay insurance recently correct? if the will give the car to you, then the dmv has paperwork for everything and its a matter of filling out the papers correctly, is there and executor, or trustee? this is who would be the one to take care of this, if there is not one, and no widow, it would go to the children, there may be fees, may be not. best of luck to the best of my knowledge, it would have to go through escrow. Since it is a material item, for some reason the government will want some money for it. Atleast thats my understanding, my sister went through the same thing with our...

Q: 

Is it legal and/or ethical for a real estate agent to obtain the owner''s signature on a residential real?

A:  Each party to the contract are to have a copy of the executed contract once it is signed. One could argue that what you have has not been fully executed by the seller(your mother). How can the brokerage office state that they have a listing to put your house on the market and seconly list it on the market without the most important part of the transaction, THE AGREED UPON LISTING PRICE? What happened to the seller''s net sheet that was prepared to show profit/loss, commission cost, etc.... What exactly is your mother committing to? This is more on the legal side and I would state that you might want to consult with a real estate attorney in order to protect your family. You might be able to get to the bottom of this by contacting the Managing Broker or Broker of...

Q: 

Can your employer tell you what to eat on a 15 min, break, if you don''t take a lunch hour and work 7 hours?

A:  What to eat? No. Are you kidding? No. Is your employer providing your meals? If so then yes they can in fact limit what you eat. Your employer cannot tell you what to eat on a 1 min break, a 15 min break, a 30 min lunch or a 1 hour lunch. It is none of their business and violates your personal rights. They do have to give you a lunch break if you work over 6 hours and it must be a minimum of 30 mins. Your boss in insane. He can''t make you eat anything unless your job is a food tester. If he is supplying the meal then he can decide what to supply but you don''t have to eat it....

Q: 

Can you drive a minbus (9-16 seater) on a B licence which allows you up to 8, but if you took seats out?

A:  i think its the size of the vehicle that counts.. u can as long as u re-register the vehicle as an 8 seater with the dvla and the mam of the vehicle is less than 3''5t (3500kgs) i know that the 17st ford transit minibuses have a mam of 4300kgs so u wouldn''t be abe to drive something that size on a b license even if u re-registered it as an 8 seater twisted is right . No. The vehicle is designed and registered as a 9-16 seater, no matter how many seats it''s got. You can only drive vehicles that are designed and registered with 8 seats. If you took the seats out and re-registered it with the D.V.L.A. as an 8 seater, that would be fine. You could then drive it on a Category B licence. If you simply take the seats out and drove it, you would be breaking the law....

Q: 

Laywer is not a member of Trial lawyer Association (TLA)

A:  Membership in any one of the numerous trial lawyer associations is an option that some attorneys choose and others do not.

Q: 

How do I go about getting a patent for a type of garment?

A:  don''t waste thousands on patent attorneys. you can do it yourself. maybe you need a utility or design patent. you can print out the provisional patent application (2 pages) and describe your item and include a drawing and send in $100. this protects you for 1 year, during which time you can promote or sell your item in order to pay later for the real patent which will be a few thousand even without a lawyer. but i wouldn''t bother because if your item is great, there will be “knock-offs” anyway. good luck! Patents offer little protection. For a garment you would apply for a design patent, but for complete protection you''d also have to apply for a methods patent as to how the design is to be asssembled/sewn. And another design...

Q: 

Am I entitled to a portion of my ex-husband''s GM Buyout

A:  It sounds like you have already been to court or have a separation agreement. I think you really need to speak to a lawyer to determine whether this change in your husband''s circumstances changes your prior order or agreement. If you have already settled property issues on a final basis (including an allowance for the pension), you may not be entitled to anything further. Child support generally changes if a support payer''s income has changed. How it would be affected would be determined in part by the nature of the buyout. If this buyout is equivalent to wrongful dismissal damages you would need to know what period it covers (i.e. is it meant as compensation for 2...

Q: 

My parents are splitting up, my grades are dropping and iHave been getting in a lot of trouble. Is this bad?

A:  I live in Baltimore, though it certainly can suck, I can assure you, it probably hasn''t got a thing to do with it. ;) You''re not a bad kid. It will change, over time it will get easier and the pain won''t be right at the surface for you. The most important thing to remember is, the present will soon be your past. Make wise decisions today so you have no regrets tomorrow. Do you have an uncle or an adult male role model you can spend time with and trust to talk to about all this? 1. The Parents thing- Not your fault. Don''t EVER think that. 2. Just try to study a little more and they''ll come back up. I find that when I''m having a tough time in regular out-side of school life, that working on just getting my grades up can make me feel a...
