  • Roommates suing for their portion of security deposit

    the landlord took all of the security deposit to fix my room. Two of my roommates wants me to pay their portions of the deposit back because they gave me money and I wrote a check for the landlord for $1800. So rent is one check as well. They said...

    Rixon’s Answer

    Sounds like your roommates are proceeding well within their rights.

    Question is: are you going to negotiate with them, fight them in court, or do nothing and are you going to hire a lawyer, or make all the decisions yourself.

    FWIW, nothing here suggests you have a particularly strong position. If you want to avoid paying, seek out a lawyer in your area. However, for the amounts involved, it may be tough to find one willing to take your case.

  • If my commander is doing a commanders inquiry on me can they start survalancing my house before they notify my I'm under investi

    I've heard my commander started a commanders inquiry on me and that my house is under survalancing but I haven't even been questioned yet

    Rixon’s Answer

    Unless you are suspected of having committed some kind of serious crime/fraud upon the Government, you can rest assured your local Commander has no resources to commit to surveillance.

    As I recall from your earlier question, you believe your ex husbands accusations have resulted in the Army CID placing your off base house under constant watch--is that right, same author? If so, your best bet is to stay offline, contact a local attorney and speak to none others than your attorney.

  • What legal grounds do I have (if any) against an auto dealer who I believe improperly installed an oil filter on our vehicle?

    My wife's vehicle died a couple of weeks ago. I couldn't get it jumped so had it towed. My mechanic said when he got it up on the lift that the oil filter was missing (completely bizarre, I know). I went to the dealer who performed our last oil ch...

    Rixon’s Answer

    If you had some kind of hard evidence you might consider suing. With what you posted here it's tough to tell whether you could even connect the dots between the dealer and your damages. That is the critical piece – – were in otherwise, everyone who wanted a new engine would simply remove their own oil filter drive their car around and then blame it on the car dealer.

    Rixon’s Answer

    Doesn't appear hear that you provided any of his personally identifiable information to anyone and therefore it would not seem you have committed a violation of any kind. Even if you had, since there's no private right of recovery under the HIPAA, the individual cannot sue you.

  • Can the U.S. Army surveillance my house OFF post if I am under investigation?

    My ex husband claimed I cheated on him while we were together and now months later I'm under investigation for this crap and I was told my house off post was going to be under surveillance.

    Rixon’s Answer

    Strongly doubt the U.S. Army would be interested enough in adulterous affairs to conduct surveillance on a former spouse. Something else is going on. Army doesn't have money for that.

  • Is anything able to be done about my totaled car?

    I purchase a brand new 2014 Chevrolet Cruze in January of last year, unfortunately in April of this year I totaled the car. I had gap insurance but when I filed my claim they told me I was only added to the policy as liability. So now I'm stuck pa...

    Rixon’s Answer

    Comprehensive and collision are not required in Virginia. In fact, no insurance is required in Virginia. Virginia driver who pays a uninsured fee to the state can drive with no insurance. Unfortunately the terms of your agreement with Geico are going to determine your options. Take your insurance documents to look attorney who can read through them and identify if you have any options relative to the insurer.

    One cannot expect Navy Federal to take a loss for its members because a driver didn't carry full coverage.

    I suspect a close read of the navy federal credit union loan documents would indicate that you were actually required to carry full coverage as one of the terms of your loan.

    Unfortunately many people purchase a car they cannot afford (I have done it myself) and then they try and cut corners by only getting liability insurance-your situation is why that is a bad idea (I'm not saying you did that on purpose, maybe you didn't know).

  • I have been a target Citizen from my local police department have documented proof of this do I have a legitimate lawsuit

    Pulled over multiple times at srategic spots

    Rixon’s Answer

    Nothing you posted here indicates you have grounds to sue anyone. That said, you provided almost no relevant facts, which isn't your fault you simply did not know what the attorneys need to know.

    Best option is for you to sit down with a Ohio attorney in your area and discuss the many details that I needed to fill in the blanks and determine if you have any legal options moving forward.

  • Can I sue my former employer for wrongful termination, unpaid wages and slander?

    Fired from a job with no reason given for my termination. However, a month prior to my termination I walked in on my married employer having sex with a coworker. He owes me approximately $300 in unpaid wages. When my new employer called to check w...

    Rixon’s Answer

    Stop providing his name as a reference for starters.

    An employer in VA does not need to give any reason for termination.

    You may have grounds if unpaid wages actually exist, see an employment attorney with all your documents and time cards etc.
