    I do no domestic work, and so you should treat my thoughts as general information. The process of "discovery" in any kind of civil lawsuit in Ohio generally does not limit what is done with information provided by the parties, unless there is a special type of court order (called a "protective order") which allows parties to designate information as confidential and agree how such information will be handled. It might be possible to retroactively get agreement on such restrictions, but if...

    If you hired the lawyer to bring a qui tam case and she did not, then you have every reason to question the attorney's judgment and conduct. If you have evidence of 515 Medicare PT billings in 180 days--3x/daily--then there is certainly reason to review it as a False Claims Act matter. The saving grace, however, may be that the statute of limitations under the False Claims Act is six years, so if the conduct occurred not too long before the case filed in county court, you may still be able to...

  3. Is this tax fraud and what do I do?

    The rules regarding this subject are complex. In general, a noncustodial parent may not claim a child as a dependent unless the custodial parent relinquishes, in writing, the right to take the deduction. You have no obligation to report your knowledge that the taxpayer claimed an extra deduction, but if you chose to do so, instructions on contacting the IRS are available online. It's hard to see why you would choose to do so, but that's your business.

    If you are insured through Medicaid or another publicly-funded health care program, then it would violate program rules if there was over-billing. Regardless, you should ask for an explanation, and if it appears not to be a simple mistake, you should contact your insurance plan if you have one, and if Medicaid footed the bill, you might consider a call to the state Medicaid hotline.

    Probably not. A Google search shows that Wisconsin's general fraud statute of limitations is six years. However, it is sometimes the case that if a potential defendant has been out of the state of country for some period of time, that can affect the limitations period. If this is more than a casual question and a substantial sum is at issue, you should consult with a Wisconsin lawyer.

  7. Can i be sued fr faking my experience?

    The company certainly can fire you. While it probably could sue you for fraud, it would almost never be worth their while to do so. They probably also could refuse to have you work on their project. If your concern is that unless you keep lying, they will find you out, you should seek advice from an employment lawyer in your state in terms of the consequences. You're squarely in a "tangled web"--I hope you find a way out which will allow you to sleep at night. Good luck.

    Although in Massachusetts purely economic losses are generally unrecoverable in tort, FMR Corp. v. Boston Edison Co., 415 Mass. 393, 613 N.E.2d 902, 903 (Mass. 1994), courts have carved out an exception for claims of negligent misrepresentation. Danca v. Taunton Sav. Bank, 385 Mass. 1, 429 N.E.2d 1129, 1134 (Mass. 1982). This exception has sometimes been characterized as limited to claims of negligent misrepresentation in the provision of services, Gavett v.

    We're generally responsible for damage we cause to things that belong to other people. You should look at the documents you signed, if any, when you signed up for the class and/or when you checked out the camera. Do they mention your responsibility for damage or loss to their equipment? If so, then they have a good argument that you have to live up to the terms of that agreement. And if you were negligent--that is, maybe you grabbed the camera wrong, or didn't have the strap wrapped around...

    You don't say what state you're in, which is probably important. In general, you have the right to be represented by anyone you want--don't forget who hired whom. However, a fee agreement with a lawyer is a legally-binding contract, and if you decide to terminate the agreement without a good reason for doing so, then you may end up owing a fee to the first lawyer. The nature and extent of what is owed is specific to state law. In many states, what you owe is based on a concept called "...
