I run a California business services. On

Hello,I run a California business for online services. On my website, I'd like to have a running promo for 50% off a single type of service (let's say Service A) for a while.My question is: Am I legally obligated to have an END date to my sale? For example, can I just run the 50% off promo and then cancel the promo whenever I feel like it in the near future? Or, do I have to have an explicit mention of an end date?Alternatively, should I put a little disclaimer that says "Subject to change" or along those lines?Thank you!

I rented out a room in a 3 bedroom/2 bath apartment.

Hi.I rented out a room in a 3 bedroom/2 bath apartment. My landlord occupied the master bedroom, and I occupied a guest bedroom, with the understanding that I would have exclusive access to the guest bathroom. Our contract was oral, and I paid month to month via bank transfer into her account. A few weeks ago, under the auspices of providing temporary assistance, she moved her cousin into the 3rd bedroom, initially assuring me that he would be using her bathroom, and mind only in an "emergency". Over the next few days, it became apparent that he was using mine primarily, and so I decided to move out. I mentioned via sms that I would be moving out "as soon as possible", and that since I was about to make a trip, I would discuss terms when I returned. She flew into a rage, accused me of not giving her enough notice etc and threatened eviction. Eventually, by the time I returned from my trip a few days later, we were able to work out an agreement in which I would stay till the 15th of April, and pay only half of what I would normally pay ($200 for 2 weeks as opposed to $400 for a month). I moved out prior to that day, and handed over the keys in the presence of witnesses and then asked her when I would get back my $250 "security deposit" which I had paid when I move in. Her initial answer was that it was being processed, but when I asked her about it a few days ago, she said a couple of incoherent things. The first sms she sent she said was that an eviction was filed and that all deposits were forfeited. When I asked for clarification, she said that on advice of her legal counsel Per her Chapter 7 filings she is not bound to any contracts or agreements etc. I asked her to provide her counsels contact information, and it has been 3 days with no response from her. I never received any notice from her and so I want to know if I can press for my deposit in a small claims court. Thanks for your help

I'm the founder of Unius Learning, Russian citizen residing

I'm the founder of Unius Learning, Russian citizen residing in the UK, came over to attend a tech conference "Collision" in New Orleans. It was my first visit to the United States. On my last day, while I was away at the conference and dinner with investors, a cleaner came into my room, which is recorded on cameras, attempted to tear my russian passport apart and threw it on the floor. The Holiday Inn Downtown Superdome - hotel manager confirmed that the cleaning lady was seen on a camera, however she claims it was an accident. When I asked whether it was to do with the vacuum cleaner, the manager said no. The hotel refuses to refund my stay, so I can move to another hotel and apologize for this matter and says that it was not intentional. It can be clearly seen on the pictures that it was not "accidental" and shows hate towards russian citizens.I'm lost and would like to request help from a lawyer.
