Q: 

My soon to be ex-husband is facing a foreclosure for which I have also received a notice. How will this affect me?

A:  The first matter that we would need to clear up is the nature of the response that I am about to give to you. You specifically asked me to detail the ''legal implications'' of this foreclosure lawsuit for you. I must make it absolutely clear that my answer is not legal advice, and that I cannot advise you concerning the ''legal implications'' of any situation regardless of how simple the issues may seem. Legal advice must be given by an attorney licensed by the state where the situation is unfolding. These rules exist to protect you, the consumer and layperson, from...

Q: 

Treatment of settlement amount from employer by UI

A:  You will need somebody very skilled at technicalword splits--odds are severance pay is a reason to turn down UC or sek recovery of  UC. So if the works of your settlement  read like its a severance award you may have won the battle and lost the war. I see your point that to agree to settle some OTHER issues might NOT be severance as such. But devil is in the details --and apparently  your award was poorly written as to your end of the deal and left this door open. 1. Who crafted the settlement deal--often side that crafted a contract can be looked upon to absorb problems of ambiguities.. 2. What does union say--especially union counsel say ----seems like any pro at labor matters could have predicted a problem of severance pay vs UC and crafted the...

Q: 

Attorney disbarred during proceedings . . .

A:  Yes, the court has to be notified. I don't know the specific rules, but, in general, the easiest way is to file a Motion for Continuation - Attorney Disbarred. Explain you found out on such and such a date that your attorney was disbarred and you need time to engage new counsel. I'm guessing that the court would find 30 days reasonable so ask for 30 days in your motion. When you file a motion with the court you have to send a copy to the opposing party. Do that right now and start looking for another attorney. If you can't figure out how to do it then you'll have to get another attorney first and fast. The new attorney typically files the substitution of Counsel notice. "the scheduled hearing date." Not sure if it's relevant, but...

Q: 

Wrongully terminated in FL?

A:  You would have to have your contract reviewed by a local attorney to determine if it is, in fact, a bona fide employment contract and whether contigencies such as the company''s closing are covered in it in the light of relevant state law. Depending on the size of the company (you indicated the company is small), COBRA may not apply. It applies to companies of 20 or more employees. No, you do not have a case for wrongful termination. A wrongful term means that you were terminated for a reason prohibited by law. Depending on the exact wording of your contract (and, as Marketeer points out, assuming that it actually is a contract and not an offer letter) you MIGHT have...

Q: 

Cop Lies on Ticket, says ''take him to court''

A:  "the cop who pulled her over was from a different city (does that matter?). " It MIGHT matter. However, most agencies have agreements in place allowing this kind of thing. "She asked to see proof of how fast she was going." The cop doesn't have to prove his case on the side of the road. "He said no. He then asked if she had been drinking, ''because your car reeks of alcohol.'' She''s underage, had not had ONE drink that night, and was angry beyond belief when he asked." The cop gets to be a jerk. He gets to be wrong. He gets to lie. It's all legal. (With...

Q: 

Patent law

A:  Bryan, There are many specifics that are needed to fully answer your question, but in general, your information regarding copyright is correct. It is not the idea that is protected, but rather the expression of that idea in written word, work of art, or other expression such as music, dance, etc. As to a patent, ideas are also not patentable, but business methods have been since State Street Bank decision, although a recent ruling in Bilski brings these kind of patents into question once again. From your description, it is likely that the patent is for the method as embodied in the website, although this is merely conjecture on my part without reading the application. You may or not have a case against the applicants. The US is a ?first to invent? country, but you would need to talk with...

Q:

In my state, a felony is punishable by no less than one year in prison and fines etc. A misdemeanor is punishable by no more than one year in prison and fines etc. a friend of mine had a preliminary trial date but then was given a felony dismissal trial date his charges are attempted murder 2nd degree assualt in the first and second degree. what does the felony dismissal trial date mean?...

Q: 

Caveat Emptor: Builder ''Incentives'' are ''Bait and Switch''?

A:  You absolutely don't want to close on this home until and unless you have had a very solid review of all paperwork with a darn good RE attorney--find any excuse you want, but stall it out until you get solid counsel--and get counsel. Is this a lender recommeneded or steered to you by builder? What does the fine print of your purchase contract say as to finance contingency--ask your lawyer. Sometimes, quite often I gather, if the lender balks, this can be used by a buyer to WALK as not fitting the finance clause. You are being given a whole lot of lender doubletalk but I have no clue as to what has legal merit and what doesn't. It certaily sounds like a variety of bait and switch. But count on the lender to...

Q: 

Denied right to pay mortage By: GG

A:  You really need to talk with a local banking/real estate lawyer. This isn't something you can solve over the internet. Laymans take: You were incredibily ill advised at the very beginning to have the other person name as sole name I see the very narrow point by the lender that they are not part of the deal--but I'm not so sure thats a clean hands point--it makes little sense that somebody would refuse payment . But you won't make the point on your own--you need a good lawyer. What your original adversary is doing is to deliberately sink your ship by obfuscation of what the court ordered to be done. I think it was marginal legal counsel second time if the issue was the ownership not to either include the lender on the...

Q: 

how personal is personal?

A:  I was hoping somebody who knows something about this area of the law would offer some input. I know nothing about the legalities of child placement, so the following should be taken for what it's worth, just a lay opinion. "it just seems that someone was not looking out for either of these 2 children when they placed the older sibling in the same 3 mile radius as an already failed placement occured there once already. that is setiing a child up for failure plain and simple!" -I don't necessarily agree with you. Why would the geographic location have anything to do with the success or failure of the placement? Wouldn't it be more about the family within which the child was placed? I don't know, but am just asking.
