Don't post anything else on this public forum, which DAs can read too. You should discuss your defenses privately with your own criminal defense lawyer. If you can't afford your own private lawyer, a public defender would be appointed for you.See question

Not sure why a bank would provide car insurance. But an insurer would consider a car-related felony (that results in "points") something that would make someone a bad car insurance risk.
As for this bank refusing to provide banking services, I cannot imagine a bank not wanting to do business with someone because of their criminal conviction status. But at any rate, there are so many banks around, why would you even want to business with this particular bank?See question

Without reviewing the contract to see what the bank is obligated to do, maybe not to finance this loan unlesslocal /until the title is provided to the buyer, impossible to say.

My cell phone and my husbands which is a straight talk phone, will not get Internet service even though we have called numerous times about it and in the description of our phone says internet capable. Its a pre paid phone. Can we sue straight t...
This is a contract question. "Can we sue" is a question only someone who's reviewed your contract with them can answer. Your contract might requite you to arbitrate, or mediate , or give notice of breach (as it defines "breach) with the alleged breaching party having 30 days to "cure,"or sue, but only in the city/state/court they have specified, etc. etc.See question
CA C Corp. I filed paperwork and was Corp Secretary for such. I was not active at all in company. Agent listed for service of process is the President. Nevertheless I was served at my home address. No attempt was made to serve President that I kn...
No, it doesn't refer to a "real" secretary. The fact the corporation has been formally dissolved won't prevent this kind of lawsuit, as it obviously hasn't.
Further, it's not impossible that you and/or the president could be added to the lawsuit as individuals who are legally responsible for the corporation's acts or omissions.
There's only one way to evaluate your potential liability here, and that's to discuss the facts and claims with your own lawyer. It's also possible that the corporation would owe you as an officer indemnity for your legal bills, but if so, this would require review of the corporation's formation documents, as well as its assets, insurance, etc.See question
I'm getting sent to court it says for a technical violation but I don't know what that means
If you've been sued and served with a Summons and Complaint, as opposed to getting a letter asking you to stop doing something, then you only have a limited number of days to get a response filed before you get your "default" taken, and that default will prevent you from defending the case, so act quickly to hire a lawyer to respond.
Don't try to litigate this using Avvo. Hire a lawyer, Litigation's not a DIY thing, and Avvo won't provide enough strategy or substantive information, even if we Avvo lawyers can help with procedure and the massive number of rules and deadlines involved in litigation.See question
I had to file an "amended complaint " the defense attorney filed a"Verified answer to Amended Complaint! My question is, how much time do I have to respond to their Verified answer? Thank- you
I defer to NY-licensed lawyers, but in CA, you can file a demurrer to an Answer. Also, there would have been no need to file a verified Answer if the Complaint had not also been verified.
Being pro per (it's only pro se if it's federal court) is very risky, because as you have already seen, litigation is confusing and complicated, full of rules and deadlines. Things don't resolve in 42 minutes like they do on TV lawyer shows. Mistakes are sometimes irrevocable, and even if your judge doesn't act like it, they get very impatient and irritated with litigants who don't know what they're doing, whether they're non-lawyers or not.
Also, and importantly, if you have a claim that has attorney's fees to the prevailing party, you abandon a power weapon by not leveraging that against your adversary.

I pay a monthly charge for access to notes that other students have supplied. You are allowed to download 10 a day. Can I use those notes that I have downloaded however I please since I technically payed for them and they are not copyrighted?

Fact: a work gets a common law (unregistered, but still existing) copyright on its creation.
In this case, these literary "notes," whatever you mean by notes, would be entitled to copyright protection, unless the students who downloaded them donated them to the public domain for anyone to use anyway they like.. But maybe for whatever reason, the students who downloaded these notes gave them to the site. Maybe they did so exclusively. Or maybe they did so non-exclusively, so they could also claim ownership. Did the students or the site register them, entitling the owner to statutory damages (instead of actual damages) plus their attorney fees? Extremely unlikely, but not impossible.
Fact: plagiarism is an academic term, not a legal one. In this case, the legal terms are copyright infringement and unfair competition.
I have no idea under what circumstances these "notes," were put on this site by other students, and I don't have any idea what the terms of the site you're paying for say. Those things would have to be reviewed to determine what rights you have for your monthly fee. Try reading the site's terms and conditions; the answers are probably there.See question
the accounts are a checking and savings. I have not adding any funds to the account. My dad just wanted me on the accounts I have a brother and sister that may want the money in the account
If you were added as a joint account owner, then yes you're a "joint tenant with right of survivorship, meaning the bank considers these accounts now yours. If your father died intestate (without a Will) then all anyone may know about his intentions is that he wanted you to have joint/equal control over these accounts during his lifetime, and perhaps, sole possession and control after his death.
But your siblings may morally, if not legally, be entitled to their pro rata share. They share 1/2 your DNA and while family isn't everything in life, it's a unique asset that cannot be replaced, Long term, you may be best off sharing the money with them.See question
