I am trying to find out if a catholic school flies under the charitable immunity when a coach verbally abused an athlete and after a few parental complaints, the bahvior continues.
Has a legal complaint been filed in court and the school filed a motion to dismiss based on charitable immunity, or are you "just wondering." This forum is not a place for hypothetical or what if questions. If you are contemplating legal action, you need to speak with a local attorney to review the specifics of the case and situation.See question
My wife and I are going to file chapter 7 bankruptcy together but she lives in Arkansas and I live in Colorado. Can we file jointly in Colorado? Which state's exemptions would apply?
That is something your attorney can advise you about. The analysis for where to file and which exemptions to apply is, in reality, needlessly complex. No way to get into here. An attorney would need at least your last 4-6 years of residence history to figure that out. Off the cuff, as the other responders have stated, which state do you consider your primary residence? What is the reason for the two, widely separate, domiciles? Assuming each of you have lived at least 91 days in your respective states, you may have the option to choose the state in which to file.
As with most things in the law, the answer depends on the SPECIFIC circumstances of the person. I suspect there is much more to your story that is needed to be able to answer your question. Probably start by consulting with a bankruptcy attorney in Colorado (the consultation is typically free, our consultations are free), and that attorney can probably drill down enough to figure out if a case in Colorado is possible or if you need to talk to an Arkansas based attorney.
Realize, in which ever state you file, the non-resident spouse will need to travel to the state to attend the 341 meeting of creditors (the trustee meeting).See question
Over 20 years ago I was attending a university. While I was in summer class for chemistry, the Financial Aid office reported me as having left due to a severe change in status with information .Federal govt handled it with department executives a...
The fact that this has been going for 20 years is problematic. This seems like something that would have been evidence early on. The core question is, did you leave or not? Your post is still unclear as to what happened that summer semester.
What is the balance owed? Honestly, it could be more cost effective to pay the balance than fight it. You might have a statute of limitations problem and since it has been 20 years, proving things will be difficult.
Judges have a hard time with cases based on events 10+, 20+ years ago, as it stretches credibility that there was anything really wrong. Think about it, why would you wait this long to take legal action? I feel for your situation, but at this point, there is probably little you can do. Just to give you some idea of the cost, I wouldn't touch this case without AT LEAST a $10,000 retainer and it would take $2000 to $4000 of that to simply figure out if anything can be done.See question
I have a contact with the school where I agreed to pay $4010 for tuition. Part of this agreement is that a third party would a portion (I do not receive any notification as to what the 3rd party pays the school). I have a separate contact with the...
Sorry, you owe the school. The agreement between you and the third party has NOTHING do to with your agreement between you and the school. As for the amount owed the school, that is something to discuss with the school. You owe the school bill. You may have a claim against the 3rd party to reimburse you, but that is about it.See question

I am changing the practice area to criminal law, this is not an education law question.
To your question, in generalities, a conspiracy charge typically requires some sort of act or progress toward the commission of the crime. Mere talking about is usually not enough to sustain a conspiracy charge.
You would still be wise to report the behavior to the police, but not sure they will do much about it at this point.See question
My daughter is in fourth grade. Her PE teacher gave her an F - 50 percent for behavior for an entire week. The grade she earned was just based on one day's bad behavior. Can a teacher do this? Is behavior allowed to effect every subject?
Not a legal question, but this is quite common. Behavior is part of participation, especially for primary education grade levels (k-8)
Instead of focusing on whether the teacher was correct to use behavior as part of the grade (which she is), focus on correcting the behavior. Also, have some perspective, you are talking about the 4th grade. The grade doesn't matter.See question
My son has asthma that has progressively become worse. His specialist is having him start on a new course of treatment. He wrote him a medical note to excuse my son from running in PE. The teacher gave my son an zero for the final grade, which ...
A doctor cannot excuse a child from a course. In fact, a doctor's note, in reality, has no legal affect. The doctor's note serves to advise the school of the risk and recommendations of that physician. This note may serve to have the school provide your child an alternative going forward, but for a course for which your kid is already in enrolled, he must complete in some manner. An essay is a reasonable alternative. Asthma does not affect your kids ability to write.
To the extent you think the assignment is above your child's grade level, you may raise that with the vice principal or principal. However, I suspect they will support their teacher. No harm in talking to him or her, if for nothing else to get your child in an alternative to P.E. next term.
By the way, this question is not really a legal question. It is a matter of the school district policy.See question

Probably not at this point. And even in such lawsuits, the remedy, typically, is not monetary damages but compensatory education. This is one area where the law expects you, to some degree, to know your rights. You should have demanded a formal evaluation under IEP. It is not the school's inherent responsibility to figure out what is wrong with your kid. Also, bear in mind there is a long curve between struggling and learning disability. By all means, speak to a local education litigation attorney, there may be some specific state law claims (doubtful, but maybe), but it doesn't sound like the school did anything wrong under the circumstances.See question
