    You may have a case against the landlordof the apartment in which you were living. You will need to prove that the landlord knew or should have known of the mold condition, which appears to be the case since you complained about the wetness of your carpet. It is important that you establish dates for everything you describe in your question. You only have two years to file a claim, but the time began to run when you first started making your complaints. Then it will be up to the doctors to...

    You have received several answers to your question, and I simply want to say that, in combination, they should all be helpful to you. It is very likely that you would not improve the result by opting out of the settlement, and I agree that it would be unlikely that you would find an attorney to pursue your individual claims against Netflix; your individual damages would be very difficult to quantify or to represent a significant monetary loss.

    While you have not included the details necessary to be certain of your best course of action, the reason class actions make sense in most cases is that it would be prohibitively expenseive for an individual to pursue a case on their own. A "few million dollars" spread over perhaps hundreds or even thousands of individuals doesn't make it appear that a similar claim would produce much for any one plaintiff.

    I am not licensed in California, and the laws on this subject are state specific. You may well have a case of libel or malicious interference with advantageous economic relations. There may also be an issue with the fact that your former colleague is emplyed by a state university. You really need to speak with a California lawyer.

    While I am not a Virginia attorney, I understand from your question that your son may have used the trash can as a weapon to hit his classmate in the head. While it is certainly possible that you and your husband could have a frank and civil covnersation with the other boy's parents, it is also quite possible that both families will get into a heated argument or worse over who was at fault. My advice would be to contact a local attorney to speak with the other family on your behalf. Your...

    Without knowing the specifics of the class action involved (and I am not licnesed to practice in Texas), the general rule would be that if it is an "opt in" class, you have an affirmative obligation to file the necessary papers to indicate that you want to be included within the time provided. Depending on the applicable statute of limitations, you might still have an independent claim you can make against the company for overtime benefits to which you may be entitled. My advice would be to...
