    I do not believe you will have much success arguing against the city inspector. Even if the gas is the same place is was before, that does not mean the location was up to code before. Codes also change, so I would focus your energy on the contractor. The rest of this question, I may not be able to answer without the details of the contract. If the fee included the cost to pass inspections, then the contractor may be on the hook for costs up until the inspection is passed.

    I agree with Attorney Solis' answer and would just add that it appears that your title in this instance would be victim. Typically, a deposition out of state will have to be taken at your location, meaning they will have to come to you for the deposition. But you still have to attend, or you can be held in contempt. If it is a 5th Amendment issue and you fear you may incriminate yourself, that is an entirely separate beast.

California and a couple other states prohibit political firings, but most states do not have those laws in place at this time. Public employers are different and cannot fire someone based on political affiliation.

    As a general rule, if a Notice of Commencement was filed, a Notice of Furnishing must be served within 21 days of the first day labor or materials are furnished to the project. Since the Notice of Furnishing relates back only 21 days from the date of service of the Notice of Furnishing, the Notice of Furnishing will only protect labor or supplies provided 21 days before the service of the Notice of Furnishing. However, if a Notice of Commencement is not filed, subcontractors and...
