I am not going to watch the video as I don't know if this is a legitimate question or simply a way to increase link backs and promote the video. However, by any legal definition, foul language and depicting drug use are not obscene. The answer to your question is no. Your remedy is to withdraw your child from the course. But at the college level, the curriculum is what it is. You can write a letter to the principal of the high school that participates in this dual track course and share your concerns.See question

Because your remedy for such action is in the case itself. It sounds like the actions were done by opposing counsel. Opposing counsel has no obligation to you. Also, a court ruled on the matter. The ethics committee does not exist to remedy an unfavorable court outcome.
You might a have a civil claim against your attorney, but the relationship between you and your attorney is unclear.
However, what you describe, candidly, does not sound like something the ethic committee would address.See question
I believe I have discovered a major privacy issue with at least one company, regarding the online information of their users. Am I entitled to a reasonable consulting fee for informing them of this problem? Or a finder's fee, if any sort of lawsui...
The short answer to your question is no. You are not "automatically" entitled to any compensation, fee (finder's fees) or reward for sharing your information with the company. As has already pointed out, it is likely you might have committed a crime by discovering the issue, so you need to tread lightly here. There is no way to guarantee that you get paid anything. At the end of the day, the company didn't ask you to do it. Think of it this way; if someone I don't know comes onto my driveway, checks the tire pressure of my truck tires, and pumps them up to the correct pressure; I don't know owe him any money for that. He did it of his own volition. I will give him my hearty thanks, if he tries to bill me, he is not legally entitled to any compensation. The short answer is, you have no rights in the situation you describe.See question

Based on the short searches I have done, it appears that in FL the minimum age of consent for sexual intercourse is 16. FL has some complexity in its law, but it seems pretty clear the answer to your question is yes, If your 15 year old daughter is engaging in sexual intercourse with a 17 year old, he would technically be guilty of statutory rape. Of course, one of the elements you have to prove is that they are, in fact, engaging in sexual intercourse. Given the narrowness of age, and unless you have actual evidence, the police may be reluctant to investigate or the DA may be reluctant to actually charge the boy with a crime. If you don't have any external admissible evidence that intercourse is taking place, then your daughter becomes the prime, and only witness. How do you think that will go over?
In the big picture, I would caution you to think through what it is you "really" want to accomplish. Candidly, if you think that charging her boyfriend with a crime will snap her out of her spiral, that is super unlikely. Also, understand, to have any shot at conviction, your daughter would need to be a willing participant in the investigation and be subject to direct and cross examination at trial. If she hates and resents you now, and is acting out, I am hard pressed to see how involving the criminal justice system will make things better. Also, maybe the 17 year old boy is a lost cause and scum of the earth, but if you charge him with this crime and he is convicted, you are ruining his life before it has a chance to really start, he ends up on the sexual predator watch list. Although the letter of the law is that a 15 year old cannot "legally" consent to intercourse, in reality, the intercourse taking place here is consensual (that is the implication I am getting from your post).
Outside of true domestic violence, I am hard pressed to think that involving the police and the criminal justice system in a family matter is ever a good thing. Sounds like she has had some brushes with the law and is still acting out. She probably needs a change of environment. Granted, that will likely take money.
A civil restraining order may be the better the path. I understand you are struggling and are wits end, I get it.
Lastly, I am updating the practice area designation to criminal law. This question is really about education law.See question

I currently live in a hotel that is partnered with my school. I complained about it and they have tried to clean then paint over it but it still has a smell and continues to grow. My sinuses are getting out of hand. What can I do about this?
Not sure what you mean or have in mind by "What can I do about this?" In the short run, this would be an issue you bring to the attention of your county or state health department. Note, there is a vast difference between toxic molds (the kind that produce mycotoxins) and regular mold and mildew. The prior, toxic mold, is the health risk, the later is not. Granted, the later can cause minor problems like your describe (sinus issues, odor, etc), but it is not inherently toxic or problematic. As you have found it, it is fairly straightforward to get rid of mold, but the issue won't ultimately be solved unless the root cause is resolved (which usually has to do with moisture and poor ventilation). It's unlikely you have a worthwhile lawsuit since your only describe sinus issues as the main problem.
Your starting point would be with the health department. They might come out and inspect and may require the owner to test the substance. If you suddenly get evacuated, then you will know the mold was of the toxic variety. If not, then you can either stay and they will clean it up from time to time, or find a different place to live.See question
I have a "private mortgage" on a house that I bought 1 year ago. The former owner who gave me the mortgage filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. I was contacted by the bankruptcy trust and informed to send my payments to them now. If someone buys ...
The bankruptcy does not change the terms of your mortgage note. In the short run, the trustee will administer the note and collect payments (which is what you describe). Eventually, the trustee will try to liquidate (sell) the note. The buyer of the mortgage note will then become your mortgage holder and you will send them payments. However, the new holder cannot change the terms.
One thing you might consider is to approach a bank see if you can refinance. However, I am guessing that you have the private loan either because you had poor credit, or maybe the property is not lendable under conventional terms.
So long as you are current on your payments, nothing should change.See question
My 14 year old daughter was assaulted in the school by another student and put his hands down her pants as he held her against the wall. I was not notified of the incident until about a week later. The school failed to follow protocol even after t...
To be candid, based on what you describe, it is not clear over what you would sue the school.
Failing to follow protocol (whatever that is) after the fact of the incident is not likely actionable (in my experience, when a parent says the school didn't follow protocol, the parent is usually misunderstands the school's obligations, but even if you are correct, it is not clear you could sue for that).
As for the incident itself, understand that public schools are usually immune (have sovereign immunity, which means they can't be sued) for ordinary negligence. The school can be sued for gross negligence. For example, if a teacher was standing 4 feet away, watching the assault and did nothing to intervene, then you may have a case against the school. You certainly have a the criminal action which you have filed. You probably have a civil case against the student (and his family). Beyond that, you would need to sit down with an attorney to discuss in detail what happened to determine if there is any cause to sue the school.See question

You didn't ask a question? If your question is do you have a defense to the case, the answer is no. The violation of speeding in the school zone is not dependant on whether the driver (you) actually saw the flashing lights. The only thing the officer needs to prove is that (1) you were speeding, and (2) and that you were doing so during the time of day the speed restriction is in place.
Note, this is not an education law question, so I am updating the practice area to traffic.See question

If the change was outlined in the fee agreement..and I think in most, if not all states, contingency fee agreements need to be in writing. You have to look at the retainer agreement you signed. Both items you mention are very common provisions in a contingency agreement. If the conflict is settled WITHOUT filing a court action (without filing the complaint), the contingency is typically 1/3. Once the complaint is filed, the contingency jumps to 40% or more. Understand the triggering event; the triggering event is the filing of the case with the court, that ups the contingency. The case can still be settled prior to trial, but once the complaint is filed and served, and an active lawsuit credited, that is when the contingency increases.
As to the other firm, the retainer agreement has (or should have) addressed that as well. It probably says something to the effect of "The attorney [your attorney] may employ such attorneys and non-attorneys as the Attorney may in his discretion deem appropriate to perform services under this Agreement. Such attorneys and non-attorneys assigned to work on your matter may be regularly employed or associated with the Attorney, and also such independent contractors or third party persons and businesses not associated with the Attorney; as the Attorney, in his sole discretion, shall utilize to work on Client’s matter and provide general services." If the agreement contains such a "delegation of work" clause, then you have already consented. If there is no delegation of work clause, then that is problem.See question
