They should have not allowed a foreign object to wind up in the food. Having said that, there is nothing for you to do. There's no legal claim since you were not injured.See question
i relieved a motion to dismiss my 1st amended complaint. i need to file a 2nd amended complaint and i dont know how long i have to do so.
Did you oppose the motion;did you cross move for permission to file and serve a "2nd amended complaint"; did the court rule on either motion it cross motion? You don't have a statutory/automatic right to serve a second amended complaint. It will depend on whether the court will permit it, in which event the court's decision/order will likely include reference to time issues.See question

From your account, this appears to be something that first occurred over 4 years ago and ended at least 4 years ago. In most States, a claim for things like defamation, malicious prosecution, false arrest etc have to be brought within a year or two of when the defamatory statement was made, or when vindicated from the "criminal" charges. It also depends on which State you were in where all this happened. You may have a statute of limitations problem. Consult with a lawyer in your area to discuss the details in private.See question

You certainly are in a difficult situation. Short of the police "talking" to the neighbor's son and convincing him to divulge the identity of the driver/owner of the offending vehicle, you don't have many options; certainly none that would be inexpensive to pursue. NY has it and I believe CA does also, a procedure to go to court to get an Order permitting pre-lawsuit discovery and compelling the neighbor to divulge the information, but it likely would be a time consuming and expensive proposition. If the neighbor doesn't honor the offer to pay it is not likely you can hold them legally responsible to pay. Consider also that even if the driver's identity is divulged, it doesn't mean that said person will agree to pay and if that person is sued and has no insurance, a likelihood given the hit and run, there is no assurance he would pay a judgment obtained against him. If you have collision coverage, or comprehensive coverage on your car, get the repairs paid for by your own insurance company. Your rates should not be affected since the damage is not your fault.See question

Generally speaking, unless you are compelled to testify by a subpoena or court order, you are not obligated to answer any questions. Furthermore, talking to someone over the phone who you don't know, particularly about sensitive matters, is generally not a good idea regardless of who the person says he/she isSee question

Truth is a defense to a claim of defamation. But before you seek revenge against your ex by posting that information, for what ever the reason, think about what he knows about you that is the truth but you would prefer not to have published .See question

I am going into civil trial in NYC Supreme Court . My attorney has advised me that the judge must apply a new law to me even if we convince him it is unconstitutional. Is this true?
A NY Supreme Court Justice can find that a particular statute might be "unconstitutional" but not likely in reality, thus the statute if applicable to the facts and circumstances of your case will likely be applied. So long as your attorney preserves the argument (objection) for appeal, the issue can be raised at the Appellate Division level.See question
