The State is going to have a hard time enforcing the ticket against you as a Canadian. Since it was a rental car they will mail the ticket to the rental agency. The rental agency will probably then identify you by name and address and send the ticket back to the State. The State will then likely mail you a ticket at the address you gave the rental agency. You are not obligated by any law to response to a ticket you receive by mail. If you don't respond to the ticket, the State may then try...
Based on your facts, it sounds like your son certainly has a colorable claim. The products liability laws in Arizona are fairly consumer friendly and you should consult with an Arizona attorney to discuss your options.
Depending on the circumstances, the arbitration agreement may or may not hold up. This is an issue your attorney will have to address. If the clause does hold up, however, don't think of arbitration as the absolute worst thing in the world. While arbitration often gets a bad rap for being stacked against plaintiffs, that is not always the case, and one good thing about arbitration is that it often a faster process. Courts in Arizona are extremely back-logged with cases. That means if you are...
Your question seems to have been cut off, but it sounds like you might have a will that was drafted in Ohio and are now living in another state (maybe Arizona). It's easy enough to fix issues with wills while you are alive, whether by amending with a codicil or having a new will drafted. I suggest you contact an estate planning lawyer in your state.
The answer is going to depend on what your agreements with the bank provide. Many consumer and business credit agreements contain provisions allowing banks to use funds on deposit in borrowers' accounts to satisfy credit card or other debts owed to the same banks. It is, therefore, common for a bank to deduct money from a bank account to pay a credit card that is past due. The bank can only do this, however, if the agreements provide them the right. There is no general right given to banks...
Your wife's inheritance will be considered her sole and separate property and there are ways she can take title to the house that would retain that separate property character. A post marital agreement (if you do not already have one) will also help. You should speak with a lawyer regarding doing this properly though because there are numerous considerations.
Justice Courts in Arizona are limited to suits under $10K and attorneys are most certainly allowed. Your wife is likely listed as a defendant to satisfy Arizona community property rules. If you are intent on representing yourself, you can have a local Arizona process server file your documents for you (for a fee). The court may also accept filings by mail. Call the specific justice court to make sure.
It sounds like you may have a potential case and should be seeking medical treatment. If liability is shown to be on the store then they will pay your medical bills. There are plenty of attorneys out there who would take your case, despite its apparent small size. I have taken similar small cases against stores and know other attorneys that do as well. The bar association referral services are often good sources if you do not know where else to turn.
If you don't respond to the mailed ticket, nothing will happen. The next step is that the State will attempt to serve you with the ticket in person. The State has 120 days of the date of filing of the ticket with the court to serve you. If they cannot serve you within 120 days, the complaint will be subject to dismissal. If they do serve you, you will be billed for the costs of service, and at that point in time, you will have to appear in court or hire an attorney if you want to fight it.
This is not a legal question, but self-plagiarism is often prohibited in academic settings. We dealt with this issue a lot in law school in the context of our student journals. We had policies specifically prohibiting self-plagiarism by students wishing to be published in the journal. Self-plagiarism can be anything from submitting an article for publication that was previously written for a class during college or failing to cite authority, even if that authority is yourself.
