I own a rental apartment. I just received a statement from

Hi, I own a rental apartment. I just received a statement from the management company of the apartment complex billing me for almost $1000 for a repair to the downstairs apartment that I was not informed was taking place. This is in a co op. Can I be held responsible for a repair that I was not advised of? Also, since it is a co op, I thought that repairs such as this would be the management company's responsibility.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Files or reported how?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No, just that the tenant living in the apartment at the time did not inform us that something happened to the downstairs apartment either but she has since moved outJA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?Customer: New york

Los Angeles I need to sue my 2 brothers. The 3 of us are

Los AngelesI need to sue my 2 brothers.The 3 of us are co-trustees for my 95 year old father. Brothers had him deemed Incapacitated with an Affidavit of Successor Trustee, last July. Right after that my younger brother said the roof needed to be replaced. He sent a roofer to inspect it and the roofer confirmed it.My father's finances were low due to remodeling the kitchen ($68000) and my mother's funeral a couple years later ($23000). So I entered into a verbal loan agreement with my brothers to pay for the roof, with the money being paid back to me when my father could pay me back.Right after that, my father's condition became such that a 24/7 caregiver needed to be hired to take care of him. We sold my father's house to pay the caregiver agency $5400 per month. The house was sold for $640,000 and the money is in the bank.My brothers will not pay me the $6000. I have called, written emails, texts, etc. for months now, to no avail. Can I sue them? Since they are co-trustees to my father's estate, does it have to go thru a different court? Or Do I have to sue my father's estate or him?This is a terrible situation. Please help.

I signed a consulting contract that paid 1/2 up front and

I signed a consulting contract that paid 1/2 up front and 1/2 when job was completed. Worked over 100 hrs getting to the place we did however the client did not complete the basic tasks required to be done concurrently with my work in order to complete the final deliverable. Client did not gain adequate resources or skill sets to prepare for FDA inspection. In Juky I notified them again of outstanding issues. I received no response. The client has now sent this to their attorney and wants the initial installment back. Am I responsible to return this even though I invested over 100hrs to date a d clearly identified outstanding deliverables.

The company I work for sold 2 pieces of medical equipment to

The company I work for sold 2 pieces of medical equipment to a company that agreed to pay us $35,000.00. Prior to the shipping company's arrival, pictures were taken of each piece of equipment and a video was taken showing that each unit was in working condition. When the shipping company came for the pick-up, our nurse instructed him on how the units should be prepared and again took pictures. She also took pictures of the units once he placed them on the truck. She instructed him to secure them better, but he basically said that he knew what he was doing. We received 2 checks, each in the amount of $17,500.00 which were deposited immediately. They both bounced. I called and spoke with Kimiko and was told that she couldn't understand why the checks bounced and that as soon as her boss returned from a conference new checks would be issued. I told her that we wanted the money wired. I sent her the information and a week later we still had not received payment. I called again, asking for payment and within the week we were wired one payment in the amount of $17.500.00. When I called to find out why we didn't receive the full amount, I was informed that one of the units needed repair in the amount of $7,100.00 and that no additional payment would be forthcoming. I called several times as did our nurse Connie, she also sent them an email. To date, we have not received the additional $17,500.00. How do I go about pursuing this matter?JA: What state is this in? And how old is the truck?Customer: Wisconsin, I have no idea how old the truck was. By the way, my name is***** my company name is***** S.C.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No, I don't think so.

I entered into a annual contract that renews every year

I entered into a annual contract that renews every year automatically for another 12 months. In order for me to terminated it I must give them 90 days notice. 115 days prior to the end of the current contract I inquired how I could take advantage of a promotion that they offered regarding if you signed a one-year contract you can get one month free. At the time they told me that current customers could not take advantage of the offer. After looking closely at the terms and conditions I found I could take advantage and pushed this issue. Now 60 days since I initially inquired they are telling me that I could have taken advantage but I needed to have given them a 90 day notice to prevent my current contract from renewing at the end of November 2016 for another year automatically. I feel that I was misled by them telling me initially that I could not take up the offer.Is there any case law as to how I could justify that they misled me as to how I could've taken advantage of the free month back when I still had the option to give them a 90 day notice to terminate the automatic renewal?

A BLM punk is harassing me on facebook. I posted a comment

A BLM punk is harassing me on facebook. I posted a comment on Vermont University. He didn't like my comment and took one of my pictures from my page and reposted it for his own purposes and posted that I am a racist on this page. I like the picture. It is a picture of me and my mister at a Trump rally.But he took it without my permission. And he captioned it, posting that I am a racist.I nicely asked him to remove it, which is the only help I got from FB. His response was that he called me a racist and threatened to post my picture wherever he wanted.Do I have any recourse? I can't find any help from FB.Thank you
