  • I don't know which court and need advice on how to proceed.

    Hi, my 1977 condominium flooded 2 times this year due to poor planning by the city and county, no help from storm water utility, and lack of maintenance on culverts, etc. by the HOA. Every time it rains, my house is surrounded by muddy water. I wa...

    Zebulon’s Answer

    If you have flood insurance then this is an issue to take up with them first, and then if you cannot resolve it with them you may want to explore further options. To have any case you will need to prove that the flooding is a result of the poor planning not just a result of heavy rain or low lying location of the property. This may be very difficult to prove. In order to explore your options, and considering you cannot afford an attorney, perhaps do an investigation as to whether there have ever been successful lawsuits regarding similar circumstances. Most likely the city and county may avoid liability due to the potentially unforeseeable outcomes which you are now suffering as a result of. Good Luck.

  • Do I have to pay rent for a month I did not stay

    I was in a confrontation with former roommates I left a month before rent was due

    Zebulon’s Answer

    As stated previously it depends on if your name is on the lease and what the terms of the lease are. More details are necessary, so I suggest you contact a landlord tenant lawyer in your area to help you discern your options. Good Luck.

  • Does my child need a DBA to self-publish a book with a pen name?

    My daughter who is a minor is self-publishing a book under a pen name. Do we need to file a DBA for her? Can we deposit payments to her bank account under either name? Also, since we live in California, do we need to open a Coogan or CUTMA for a p...

    Zebulon’s Answer

    As tempting as it is to seek the answers to these questions over a forum, I would highly suggest contacting a California entertainment attorney to help you get setup properly. With the proper vetting it should be time and energy well spent. Use the find an attorney function on avvo and do some phone calling to find someone with experience handling child talent. On a most basic level you need to be extra careful because California has specific strict laws relating to youth's earnings, and you will most likely not be able to deposit to accounts under any pen name without a DBA. But again my first advice is to search for an attorney in your area with experience in child talent and ideally literary publishing. Good Luck in your endeavor.

    Zebulon’s Answer

    I agree with the other lawyers, it is a new type of pop up scam most likely. It is a commonly asked question. One solution, avoid these types of sites on the internet. Good Luck.

    Zebulon’s Answer

    I'm sorry to hear about your unfortunate situation. You might get the help of an attorney to draft a demand letter stating that if they don't deliver before a certain time then you will file suit, this gives them notice of your intention to sue. It may help move the process along by waking them up and putting a deadline on actions. Good luck

    Zebulon’s Answer

    This is not an entertainment law question, it is a juvenile law question. You will probably not get into to much trouble, especially if you do not make any false assertions, like for instance putting in a fake birthday or lying about your age. You can always just wait until your 18 if your too worried about the consequences or possible risks.

    Zebulon’s Answer

    As discussed above, this question is impossible to answer on this forum. The only basis you may be able to do something like this is under fair use exception to the copyright law. Do an investigation into what constitutes fair use, and seek the counsel of an attorney to discuss your particular project and concept. Best of Luck in your endeavor.

    Zebulon’s Answer

    Unfortunately, like a lot of things in the law there is no cut and dry, clear answer. As they say, it's all in the details. Things like medical treatment, pain, downtime, etc, or lack thereof, all would influence any answer significantly. Good Luck.
