A leased vehicle was in an accident - If the lessee abandons at the tow yard in the state of California who is ultimately responsible for the tow and storage fess --Me or the lessor.
Probably the party responsible for the accident and abandonment, but it would depend on what the lease says.See question

Probably yes, but I'm guessing about what your fee agreement says. The definitive answer is in that written fee agreement you signed. Ask your lawyer to explain it to you if you're not sure what it says.See question
al of this co., (Pres.), been in business for 12 years, how likely is it he is not receiving dividends or some form of compensation from company he did not list in his I&E? He only listed non assive incomoe @$50K.
My former boyfriend who has to pay child support owns a company. He files for bk, he is the only officer in the company. Is it possible the creditors would not go after his company too or the company would not be affected?
If he as an individual filed for bankruptcy, assuming he's the only owner as well as director, and assuming the company has assets, he'd have to list his stock ownership in the company on jhis bankruptcy petition. In that sense, the company's assets and stock would be involved in the bankruptcy and the trustee would be able to reach the company's assets.See question
I did business with a mortgage company, named MERITAGE MORTGAGE CORPORATION. On the note and mortgage that I signed, both documents show the name to be MERITAGE MORTGAGE, CORPORATION. (A comma was added to the business name.) Can this company use...
No. Typos and punctuation are extremely unlikely to change contractual obligations. That doesn't mean there aren't other reasons to challenge a contract, but those reasons aren't anywhere near important enough.See question
I am looking to start a business and I have a catchy name iv been using for email, business plans and social media but I just found out a company in another state has the same one. Their name is the same as mine but theirs has the word kitchen at ...
A name can be a corporate and business name without being a trademark. Each state's secretary of state prevents anyone from registering the same name, but nothing prevents someone in another state from using that exact same name, or one that's confusingly similar.
A trademark, on the other hand, is different. Trademarks are the names or phrases (or symbols, or logos, or even colors or smells or shapes) that designate the source of some goods or services. Think Nike's swoosh. MGM's lion's roar. UPS's brown color.
Trademarks can be registered in a state, for businesses that don't ever sell their goods or services anywhere but that state, or federally, with the US Patent and Trademark Office, for online use to any state (or country) and across state lines.
In general, the 1st word of a multiword trademark is more important that the 2nd word, which is more important than the 3rd word, etc., because that's how a consumer would look your business up online or in a directory or in the USPTO's database.
Another thing to know is that a TM doesn't need to be exactly the same as another user's to infringe. it only needs to be confusingly similar. The same thing goes for the goods or services; they only need to be confusingly similar. Think Delta Airlines and Delta Faucets. No confusion there. The question to ask yourself is, would consumers be confused? If the answer's yes, than the use is infringing.
Another rule is that TM rights are acquired by use, not be registration. In general, the "superior" user beats the "junior" users to market, so their rights are stronger. Unregistered rights are "common law," and they don't accrue the benefits that registeration offers, but they are still enforceable.
There are many other factors to analyze when choosing a viable and available TM. It can be an expensive mistake if the choice is done without professional help, so get some.See question
I previously posted about this but I am reposting as circumstances have changed. Two months ago, I hired a company to install a new roof on my home. We agreed upon the "all inclusive" amount and the service was completed. A month later, I recei...
Not signing the contract doesn't mean you don't owe anything; it's still evidence of an oral and presumably enforceable contract, and it seems you agreed orally to the extra $600 charge.
In CA, construction contracts require written agreements, and "change orders" for addiional work, so it's possible that this roofer is vulnerable because of their license status and their sloppy paperwork. I don't practice in OR and don't know fi that's true in OR.
No one can tell you what this contract says, and what the parties agreed to, without reviewing this document and consulting with you. You will need to see your own OR construction lawyer for help.See question

Filing for bankruptcy protection is something that someone should only do if they can't pay their loans back i about 5 years, and it's almost never appropriate for a single debt.
All your debts and assets need to be considered before taking this extreme step. Consult a bankruptcy for a mroe thorough analysis of your situation.See question

Since you state that the transaction was "unauthorized," then you should be able to get the charge reversed, although some banks and credit card companies require disputes to be made within 60 days, so it's unclear if your 2 month membership would cause a problem in getting the charge reversed.See question
