Kaiser did the same thing to me. My daughter was given the wrong antibiotic because the nurse was not paying attention, and she got really sick. Kaiser refused to take the complaint because I reported it officially beyond the 60 mark. That policy ...
Kaiser Permanente's internal complaint policy cannot circumvent the statute of limitations in the state of Washington for bringing a claim for medical negligence. Shortening the statute of limitations from three years to only 60 days would be contrary to public policy. One route that you might take is to lodge a complaint with the Medical Quality Assurance Commission (http://www.doh.wa.gov/LicensesPermitsandCertificates/MedicalCommission).See question
A small business with which I am associated had a Yelp! review posted on our page with statements that are, according to WA state law, libelous by defamation per se regulations. Unfortunately, because the review was posted during the holiday seaso...
Yes, a cause of action based on libel may be brought in small claims court in Washington. Typically, small claims involve auto accidents, property damage, landlord/tenant disputes, and collection of personal debts. The claim will be limited to $5,000 in money damages. The parties present the case themselves, as lawyers are excluded from appearing so you will need to be prepared to present testimony and evidence.
Libel is a form of defamation. To win a defamation claim, you'll need to prove, at a minimum, that the reviewer made a false statement which caused harm and acted with reckless disregard for the truth. Whether a claim of per se defamation is available depends upon what was said. An example of per se defamation would be calling someone a criminal, in which case harm is assumed.
Also, you need to be aware that the statute of limitations for libel is two years.
Another option is potentially to contact Yelp! and challenge the review based on a violation of Yelp!'s user terms and conditions.See question

I am sorry to hear about your unfortunate circumstance. You do have cause to be concerned. First, if you have the ability and feel safe doing, contact your ex-boyfriend's parents and find out the status of refinancing the vehicle to remove your name. Second, another option might be selling or gifting the vehicle to your ex-boyfriend's parents. If so, you may be able to have the lender assign the balance of the loan to your ex-boyfriend's parents. If you're unable to get any clear answers, you are well advised to contact a local attorney to protect your rights.See question
