  • Im being discriminated against what do I need to do

    i have been residing in the apt complex off and on my significant other and it' has been very overwhelming with the hateful comments, foul language and being treated unfairly especially in a public areas of the complex. Was allowed on or in the Re...

    Anne’s Answer

    You do not say on what basis you believe you are being discriminated against. Regardless, whether or not the management of the complex can limit your access to public areas of the apartment complex is going to depend on the language of your significant other's lease. Does it allow overnight guests? Does it allow for "residents" other than the person on the lease? Does it allow for guests of the tenant to use the public areas? Or does it prohibit such activity? Or say nothing? If you are unsure, you and your significant other should take a copy of the lease to an attorney for a consultation.

  • Can I retain subtenant's deposit if they violated oral agreement regarding occupancy and caused damages?

    I am renting a home with an attached apartment. The landlord approved a "subtenant." I made a verbal agreement with a single mother and her adolescent daughter and agreed to reduce her monthly rent by $30 a month if she committed to staying for ...

    Anne’s Answer

    It is not illegal bullying for a landlord to request that a tenant or former tenant make agreed-upon payments, such as for utilities used. Regarding the deposit, if the subtenant made a demand for the return of the deposit, you have a responsibility to provide the subtenant with an accounting of all costs of damages you are subtracting from the deposit. You have a responsibility to use the deposit money to repair the damages, not just leave the property unrentable.

    Anne’s Answer

    The answer is going to depend on how all the cars were titled, and in whose names any loans were made, and where any cash money that went into these purchases came from. You need to take all the documents you have related to these vehicles and the transactions and have a consultation with an attorney in person.

  • Can I sue a person and her insurance company for emotional and financial distress?

    I am ill. I am not suppose to get stressed. I am under doctors care for many different reasons and have been told many times I need to limit my stress I have enough problems in my life and this lady hits my car lies about it. She refused to make a...

    Anne’s Answer

    The police report does not determine civil liability. The police officer did not witness the accident. You and the witness did, so that is good, but insurance wheels turn slowly. Emotional distress is a category damages, not a basis for a lawsuit in and of itself. Intentional infliction of emotional distress is a tort, but the facts here do not support a claim for that.

  • Can I sue Enterprise?

    My car was parked and struck hard by a person driving a rental (from Enterprise). Enterprise is refusing to accept responsibility since the renter (the passenger) let her friend drive (an 'unauthorized driver'). The renter did purchase insurance b...

    Anne’s Answer

    You can sue the person who hit you. If the person with the rental contract had coverage that applies, then the insurance and/or Enterprise will step up and defend the at-fault driver. But when you are in an accident, you never sue the at-fault driver's insurance; you sue the person who was at fault in the accident.

    Anne’s Answer

    Arizona is an at will employment state, which means you can be fired for any reason except a discriminatory one. If you belief the real reason you were fired is discrimination based on your membership in a protected class (based on race, gender, religion, ethnicity or age), your first step is to file a complaint with the Arizona Attorney General's Office Civil Rights Division or the EEOC. You can also seek out a private attorney who handles employment discrimination cases.

  • How do I cancel my LA fitness personal training membership

    I was not told about the 12 month contract and I thought it was just for 1 month personal training. It's clearly a fraud and now when I go and ask them, they are being arrogant and not even letting me talk to their vice president. Please help

    Anne’s Answer

    An attorney can not advise you without seeing a copy of the contract you signed. There may be outs in there, but an attorney would need to go over the contract to find them. If you signed a written contract, it does not matter what you were told, only what the written contract says. Make an appointment with an attorney for a consultation and review of your contract.

    Anne’s Answer

    If you are going to sue anyone, it would probably be the TV station, but more facts would need to be known. You need to sit down in person with an attorney who handles defamation cases. This might be a case of defamation per se because it appears designed to hurt you in your business. You have to prove actual malice only if you are a public figure, even for limited purposes, but it does not appear as if you are. Still, you need to calmly go over all the facts with an attorney to determine whether you have a good case.
