  • I need to create a contract to give compians for the use of temp services

    I am starting a temp agency and need a contract for compianies

    Zachary’s Answer

    You should contact a local attorney to draft a template agreement that you can use for your clients. Otherwise you may be able to find a form contract online, however be careful using form agreements created for use in other states as the requirements for PA may be different.

  • My online game site is upgrading however i dont like it, i have paid alot of money can i claim a refund of all money paid

    Hi all i play a game called Darkorbit its a bigpoint game, however thousands of pounds later they are "Upgrading" to a new client, this client works fine for people with huge monitors however due to me only having my laptop i cant see much making ...

    Zachary’s Answer

    I took a quick look at the Darkorbit terms and conditions and as expected there is nothing in the agreement that would give you any recourse for changes being made to the client. If the changes that are being made make it so that you cannot play your only option is to stop paying and no longer play.

    The argument has been made by numerous plaintiffs that putting time and money into a character in an MMO entitles the player to some rights by the host but this argument has been unsuccessful both in the context of intellectual property and in guaranteeing playability.

    Unfortunately anytime you invest your time and money into an online game you are at the mercy of the developer.

  • Am i legally obligated to pay for fuel oil that was delivered to my house in error?

    We were not at home when it was delivered. i found the bill on my door. It was addressed to my neighbor across the street. It had a house #, description of the house, location of the fill, all marked on the paperwork and none of which matched my h...

    Zachary’s Answer

    If they delivered the fuel to you in error you should be able to return it without making a payment. If you used the fuel, thereby accepting it, then you are required to pay for it. The next time they contact you just tell them when and where they can pick it up.

  • Has my 4th Amendment been violated? if so what can be done about it.

    Is it legal for a store employee to accuse a patron of shoplifting, have security search the patrons belongings and find nothing, then to call the police and have the patrons belonging searched again to find nothing and then just say sorry.

    Zachary’s Answer

    Store owners are given certain privilieges in regards to the treatment of potential shoplifters. More than likely they were within their rights to detain you search you, and call the police. If, however, you feel that you were detained for longer than was reasonably necessary to determine whether or not you had been shoplifting and to call the police, or if you feel that you were searched inappropriately you should contact a local attorney regarding your rights.

    Zachary’s Answer

    If the contract does not provide for any kind of termination fee then he is most likely only entitled to payment for the work he has already done. You may want to have a local attorney review the agreement to determine whether there was a penalty, otherwise you may be sending this person a demand letter and possibly taking them to small claims court.

  • Timeshare maintance fee do you have to pay them

    do i have to pay maintance fees

    Zachary’s Answer

    If they are required under the agreement you signed then you most likely have to pay them. If they are being applied to you and not included in the agreement then possibly not, but more information about the situation would be needed.

  • How do I cancel my timeshare contract?

    We purchase a time share in 2008 and we have been lied to and now we can't afford it and we would like to cancel the contract can you assist me with this issue.

    Zachary’s Answer

    Cancelling a contract is a difficult process unless the contract itself allows the parties to terminate the agreement. You should probably contact a local attorney and discuss the specifics about what you were lied to about. Depending on the degree of the lies and what they relate to you may be able to void the contract but anyone helping you would certainly need more information as well as a copy of the agreement.

  • Can you cancel a modeling contract in Arizona under the at will status of the state?

    My minor son was signed by a modeling agency in Phoenix. The contract states the agreement can be cancelled by either party. Does sending a request to cancel via certified mail satisfy cancellation? He has been offered a contract by a much better ...

    Zachary’s Answer

    If the contract states that it can be cancelled by either party sending a notice by certified mail will probably be sufficient. Many contracts specify the form that notice must take, you should look for a provision possibly titled "Notices" in the agreement to be sure or contact a local attorney.

  • Construction law

    What are the laws governing construction management?

    Zachary’s Answer

    Your question may be a bit too broad for this forum. If you have a specific question about a particular law or situation someone on Avvo will probably assist you but if you want a general survey of an area of law or the laws that might affect your business you should consult a local attorney.

  • Is it legal for an unknown person to post an email which was not sent to them to a blog on line

    It has come to my attention that an unknown person to me has been given an email of mine. She has edited the post and has left my name as the signature. How do I get it removed or stop this person from doing this?

    Zachary’s Answer

    Generally you have no privacy interest in anything you willingly send to someone else. Without an agreement to the contrary they are free to share that information with a third party and that third party may post it or disseminate it as they see fit.

    Assuming this person did not illegally intercept the email and you are not suffering some special damages there is probably nothing you can do to have the post removed.
