I'm interested in becomeing a partner in a resturaunt. But lied about already being partner when the resturaunt opened a few months ago. And told them the name of it and where it is and who is the real owner. Will I get in trouble?
No, but you very likely wasted your own time and the lawyer's.See question
If I just sell items on eBay here and there without wanting to make a business out of it do I still need to charge buyers Sales Tax? Kinda like a "online garage sale"?

My company is registered in Australia and we are selling consumer products in the US on Amazon. I was looking for a liability insurance for our products to cover an injury or accidental damage. Should I be looking for an insurance company in the U...
Amazon does business in many different countries, but you should check your contract with the U.S. Amazon you're doing business with to see if they require you to qualify your company to do business in a state in the U.S.
Liability coverage will typically relate to where an injury occurs, which in your situation will be the U.S.See question
Can I be arrested for over drafting me bank account and not paying it back ever.
No. Tthere are no "debtor's prisons," so you can't be arrested and prosecuted CRIMINALLY. But if you don't pay the debt you owe, you can be sued CIVILLY by the creditor.See question
If I don't pay my timeshare maintenance fees in Florida can they come after me in England. The contract was signed in Florida under Florida law.
Yes. A judgment in any state can be "domesticated" by a court in another state, or another country, and enforced in that other state or country. The practical cost of and effort of suing you in FL and then taking that judgment and "domestiocating" it in England where you and your assets are may dissuade anyone from doing that, but it's not impossible.See question
My spouse and I just received our California Real Estate Salesperson licenses and want to form a single member LLC. Should we be 50/50 owners? Can we both be 100% owners? What are the tax, social security and liability reasons for each possibility...
A simgle member LLC is for 1 person. You and your spouse can each own 50% of an LLC, but it would have 2 members: each of you.

Hello, I want to show my app to a lawyer to see if the name and design can be protected, and how I can go about protecting them. This may be a paranoid question, but are there any precautions I should take before showing it to a lawyer (like ha...
Yes, you're automaticaly protected by the attorney-client relationship that's formed when you consult a lawyer, whether you end up hiring them or not. Lawyers are among the most regulated professions on the planet, and owe clients (and potential clients duties of loyalty and confidentiality, as well as the "fiduciary" duty to look out for their client's interest before looking out for their own interest.
Things to ask your lawyer besides choosing a viable and available trademark for the app, and the design for a design patent:
-registering the computer code for a copyright
-registering the technology for a utility patent
-forming an entity to own this intellectual property
-contracts with a non-disclosure agreement to bind developers/financiers
I have a band and legally I am the owner. One of the band members went to the organization we did an event for. He said he was representing the band. He wanted to see the check they paid us with because he wanted to see if the individual band m...
Filing a DBA does NOT make you the "owner" of a band. Bands are typically equal partnerships, with each band member being a partner in proportion to the number of partners/members, and each receiving a proportionate share of the band's income for recordings and personal appearances. Typically, the partnership, not any band member, owns the band's name as its trademark.
Songwriting income would be apportioned according to who wrote what. Each song recording and musical composition needs to be registered for a copyright and with a performing rights society according to each songwriter's/music publisher's share. Each song needs a co-publishing agreement to spell out the shares.
Your band may be structured differently than a partnership. You may have hired your band members as your employees and paid them salaries or paid them some other way, and maybe you are the individual owner of the band's name (i.e., its trademark).
Re: your question about whether this band member has the right, as the band's agent, to ask about a payment, that depends on what the contract with the organization says, and how TX law treats people who appear to be authorized agents of entities such as this band.

I linked a banking account however it wasnt compatible with the app RobinHood. I had tried to make two small deposit under 3 dollars which went thru then 5 days later I got a 30 dollar reversal charge and 7 days another 30 dollars reversal charge....
Sure you can file a lawsuit for $60 if the app's terms of service say the company has agreed to be sued. Anyone can sue anyone for anything. But no oneE would think it was a good use of time or money or effort to file a lawsuit over 2 $30 reverse fees.
Every 3 or 4 months, solar city keeps sending me a bill of around 3000$ which is incorrect. it should only be around 70$ because they bill me for my solar panels output that I use. It's physically impossible for it to be any higher because of the ...
Cease and desist letters need to threaten plausible litigatation with actual grounds to sue. Here, you can't seriously threaten a lawsuit. It makes no sense to sue a company for bad billing practices.
This is a customer service issue. Treat it like one. Going to the state's AG and seeking adverse publicity is also an overreaction. Solar City, and you, their customer, are doing something GREAT to help the planet, so the last thing you want to do is give them bad publicity. Trust me, I feel the same way about my Tesla roadster pretty much every time I get it serviced, but I forgive Tesla their corporate flaws because this company is on the right side of history here, as is Solar City.
You understandably want this repeated frustration to end. So put your complaints, which it sounds like you have good records of, in writing. Name names. List dates. Document the erroneous bills. Keep copies of everything. Send it to the corporate office, with a copy to their legal department. Ask for a written response, and get the name/title and contact inormation of someone with authority to fix this once and for all. Get something you can wave around in the future of this happens again. And remember, besides the great savings you're getting why you're doing business with Solar City.See question
