    Surprisingly, no. This is especially the case for smaller matters within a larger overall case. In those situations, as well as sometimes for the whole case, a summary disposition may be sufficient, particularly if it is immediately obvious why the court ruled the way that it did (ie. failure to state a claim, default by one party, etc.) I'd be a bit surprised if there isn't SOME rationale given in the decision (in case of appeal)--such as by citing to a Tax Court rule that explains the...

  2. How long after a child is born can the mother and father sign the Voluntary Acknowledgement of Parentage ?

    There is no time limit when signing the Voluntary Acknowledgement of Paternity, though of course the sooner the better. The form should be signed before a notary public and then filed at the town clerk's office or the state registry of vital statistics so your child can have his or her birth certificate amended.

    I don't see why that would be a problem. The MBTA has been funded this way since 2000.

  4. What happens if I do not pay the civil demand of my teen being caught for shoplifting? I am unemployed and cannot pay

    A civil demand letter is nothing more than the store's attempt to get your daughter to give them some money and the hope is that she will be intimidated into doing so. In order for them to force you to pay, they would have to take you to court, prove damages, etc. Hiring an attorney to do this for them is likely going to cost them far more than the amount they would recover, so the odds of them actually suing you for it is low (but it's not impossible). I've linked below to an excellent guide...

    The answer to this question depends in part on the lease agreement and the clauses in question. While it is true that you are responsible for the entire lease term, a landlord is also responsible for mitigating his/her losses. That is, if you break the lease and vacate the premises, they are obligated to re-rent the premises as soon as possible, leaving you only responsible for the time the apartment was not rented out. The landlord cannot "double-dip" and collect rent both from you for the...

  6. Can you be charged with an O.U.I in your driveway? MASSACHUSETTS

    It seems extremely unlikely that you'll be charged with OUI given that the police weren't called and thus can't verify your blood alcohol level at the time of the incident. As Attorney D'Agostino notes, there may be civil ramifications if your housemates decides to go after you for the damages. You may want to discuss this with an attorney if they decide to sue.

  7. Does intellectual property infringement fall under the classification of torts?

    Attorney Ballard's answer is a good one. Intellectual property infringement is a type of tort. As for the second half of your question, this is difficult to answer generally because the facts are highly important in whether a court will consider "piercing the corporate veil". For example, when you say you are "part of a corporation" do you mean as a shareholder/owner, or as an officer/director (or both)? If one or the other, these two groups are subject to different levels of liability. It...

    I'm sorry to hear about this! This is a great question that does not have a one-size-fits-all answer. The answer depends on who is considered "at fault"--you, the landlord, or nobody. You say that it was a microwave malfunction -- who provided the appliances for your apartment? Was it your microwave that you brought in or was the apartment furnished already? If it was furnished by the landlord, had you had issues with the microwave before and told the landlord about it (thus, putting him on...

  9. A car was stolen and hit my parked truck. The driver fled the scene with another car. Who's at fault?

    As Attorney Sarangi notes, it is very unlikely that the owner of the stolen vehicle will be found responsible unless there was some blatant negligence on the owner's part that enabled their car to be stolen (such as leaving the car unlocked with the keys in the ignition in an open area). The person at fault is obviously the car thief. Since you probably don't know who that is, your recourse is to your own insurance policy. Hit-and-run drivers are typically considered "uninsured" for purposes of...

    Jail time sounds like a possibility based on what you've said. Your son needs to contact a criminal defense attorney immediately.
