the guy damaged my car, i sent it to dealer for inspection, while at dealer it was broken into and had stereo stuff stilen.
It depends on the contract you signed with the dealership or, in the alternative, it will depend on whether the dealership has posted notice that they are not responsible for lost or stolen items in vehicles they have. The dealer has responsibility for your car while it is in the dealer's possession - that legal relationship is called a bailment. If you signed a contract or receipt for the work or for the inspection on the car, then that contract may address the dealership's responsibility with regard to break ins. If it does not, then the case will fall back on the duty of a person undertaking a paid bailment, in this case the dealer, and whether the dealer failed in that duty. All bailments carry a duty to safeguard the property, and the case will depend on whether the dealership took reasonable steps to fill that duty. If they did not, then you can potentially recover. Good luck.See question

staying at hotel while apartment is being repaired and hotel is sold out this weekend. Can they make me leave?
Yes. Once the hotel tells you to leave, you occupy the legal status of a trespasser and you may be removed from the premises. Eviction is a remedy reserved for tenants - which you may believe you, but you actually aren't. Hotel and motel guests are exempted from the provisions of the Virginia Residential Landlord Tenant Act and the standard landlord tenant statutes. So you have to leave.See question
We cannot feed the stray cats on the property because it attracts raccoons and possums. However, there is an abandoned building where we can feed them. This morning the landlord said there's been multiple complaints of cats on the property. I pet ...
No. A lease governs only your personal actions as it concerns the care and condition of the property you rent. I have never seen a lease so specific as to control your interactions with other animals or pets, and I highly doubt that such a lease could be enforced on that point even it existed.
That said, you should probably not pet stray cats for any number of health and safety reasons.See question
If someone other than myself or my lawyer fill out paperwork for court and all I do is sign them; is it still legal?
The people who should fill out papers for you for court should be yourself or your attorney. If all you are doing is signing it, and not reading or understanding it, then it will not be long before your opponent or the court figures out that fact. If that is the case, your paperwork is in danger of being struck as a nullity and the person who prepared the paperwork for you has unlawfully practiced law and may be liable.
I have attached a statute, a rule, and a recent case where you can see how these statutes and rules are applied by the Court. The decision is an excellent one and is very informative. Good luck.See question
The son of my ex- employer filed a complaint with police that I may have stolen $1360.06 during my duty as desk manager of a franchised hotel. I had worked between 2/20/2014 and 3/13/2014. My employer complained of cash short of about...
Yes. The complaint and charging document should be part of the criminal file. You should go to the court, visit the clerk's office for the criminal court, and ask to see the file. Then you should ask for a copy of the file to be made. Bring money, check, or credit card to do this, as there will most likely be charges.See question

paid cash for an all sales final vehicle the transmission went out an hour after I purchased it, is their a lemon law in Virginia?
Probably not. This sounds like a used vehicle. The all sales final tag is also difficult.
There is a lemon law, however. I have attached a link to the state attorney general's website.See question
I just received a subpoena in the mail. I was working at OfficeMax, until my job was moved over seas. I was given the option on June 18, 2014 to go back to school. I have not found a job, I have went back to school. I have no income that comes in ...
First, you did not receive a subpoena. A subpoena is a document, filed pursuant to a lawsuit, that commands you to appear to testify or to produce documents, What you received is a warrant in debt. I am guessing that it is from the hospital, although it is not directly stated in your post.
A warrant in debt is a general district court lawsuit. It is a suit for money filed by someone representing that they are your creditor. You should consult an attorney in Saltville and determine whether you wish to defend this suit. You may also wish to contact the attorney that filed the suit and, if you feel that the money is properly owed, try to work out a payment arrangement. Hospitals will usually work with you on that, but beware, they may push you to pay the whole thing.
One additional avenue worth checking, some hospitals will let you file a charity application if you did not have insurance. Good luck.See question
