  1. Can I legally repackage and resell an existing product for a new use without the original owner/manufacturers consent?

    Answered about 5 years ago.

    This is a great question. Several factors go in to this. First, the item resold should not be able to be readily identified as the original manufacurer's (so that you are not benefiting from their branding/marketing efforts). Second, you would also be well served to change or add to the original in some fashion, to be able to make the claim of an added value. To use your example, adding (or removing) fragrance or color or some alteration of the "mosquito repellent". A third consideration...

  2. Can I ask for a prayer for judgement for a 14 mph over speeding ticket with no other speeding tickets?

    Yes. Recent changes in NC law prohibit the judge from granting a PJC in cases in which the originally charged speed was more than 25 over. Ultimately, though, a PJC is always in the sole discretion of the judge. You're not entitled to it. If the judge won't grant it, you can't make him (her). Also keep in mind that the insurance companies in NC will only honor one PJC per policy every three years. If you (or someone else on your policy) has had one or is likely to need one in the next...

    There is no Statute of Limitations issue here. In NC, generally, a warrant is recalled after 120 days and returned to the issuing Clerk of Court (otherwise officers would have to ride around with filing cabinets full of warrants). This doesn't make the case go away, it just means no one is actively looking for you. You need to appear in Forsyth County (ideally with a local attorney) and try to get it resolved. They are not likely to have the evidence necessary to prosecute you (no...

    This is a question of evidence. The witnessed and notarized will is sufficient, but depositing a copy with the Clerk of Court gives an added measure of credibility in the event that the will is later attacked by other potential heirs. (Of course, none of this speaks to whether the actual language of the Will itself survives scrutiny.)

    As long as the State doesn't seek to introduce any of the statements you made while in custody, the lack of Miranda rights is irrelevant. The charge of worthless check in North Carolina is a fraud case based on a person writing and delivering a check with fraudulent intent that they know at the time they write it has insufficient funds to cover the amount drawn. MOST cases prosecuted in NC under this statute have ZERO evidence of fraudulent intent and are simply a way for the business to...

  6. I had a speeding ticket and missed my court date almost two years ago

    Assuming your ticket was in NC and for a run of the mill speeding charge, you need to call the Clerk of Court in the county in which you received the ticket and ask to have your case added to the docket. Appear in court, ask the DA for a reduction, plead to the reduced charge and pay whatever fine and court costs the judge orders. (An attorney can do this for you and likely get you a better reduction than you can get on your own, as well as saving you the time and hassle of going to court)....

    Driving While Impaired and Fleeing to Elude are the most serious charges. He may get 24 months in prison for the DWI. (It is possibly a Level 1 for sentencing because of the prior convictions). The Fleeing to Elude is a Class H felony and is likely to carry a sentence in the 8 to 14 month range. It's possible, depending on the individual circumstances of his case, as well as the temperament of the local DA and judges, that the sentences could be suspended and he could get placed on...

    You may have several causes of action against him (until the money runs out, anyway), dependent upon the wording of your Articles of Incorporation, the nature of the harassment, etc. Definitely seek the advice of counsel in area. You can look up the corporate filings at the link below

  10. Can the homeowners association fine me for not pressure washing my house

    The answer to your question will generally depend on the language and restrictions of the restrictive covenants on your property and the authority and powers granted to the homeowners association. These vary from neighborhood to neighborhood. Without knowing more, it is possible that they have the authority to fine you under some circumstances.
