I am very interested to go in to buying and selling real

Good afternoon,I am very interested to go in to buying and selling real estate properties in a short term. I believe the term for that is flipping. I read some information about the legal aspect of these transactions by googling the word. Most comments indicate that there is no legal issue with it. However, I noticed a comment by a person that said that in Washington, there is a legal issue with it. I live in California and I went be rest assured that this is completely legal here. Please advise.

How do i need to set a non compete contract for an employee

How do i need to set a non compete contract for an employee where it will actually hold up in court? I was told by another company that they pay their employees an extra $1000 bonus at the end of the year to enforce the non compete/non disclosure. I am in the repossession business and want to have my office staff set up so if they try to quit they cant try to take any of my clients with them.

Is a consignment agreement valid if the first statement says

Is a consignment agreement valid if the first statement says "on the effective date, the consignor will cause to be delivered the inventory to the consignee, and the consignee agrees to accept the inventory", but then the consignor does not cause for delivery of inventory, but instead transfers funds and instructs consignee to purchase inventory to sell on behalf of the consignor? Is the agreement still valid even though the event described in the agreement did not occur?

I purchased a contract for mentoring service that was

Hi I purchased a contract for mentoring service that was supposed to help make my online business very profitable. They have not held up their end of the contract. I was promised “done for you emails” but I have to write the emails myself. I just don't get the vision of what they want me to do. They have refused to refund my money. I have asked them if they would provide mentoring for another website that I manage - but I have received no answer. The contract was voided by them. So if the contract was voided - I should get my money back -Right? I would be willing to pay a fee if you can get my $2000 back Thank You

I filed discrimination case pro se. Later, I was sanctioned

I filed discrimination case pro se. Later, I was sanctioned by court for 4k as a result of discovery motion. The court did not take into consideration that there is no statutes of sanctioned for cancelled joined expedited motion. I don't have money and because of defendant already lost the job and in deep debts by now. If court will continue to ignore my rights I don't see winning this case, but getting deeper in debts. The dispositive motions are not filed yet by either of parties, and there are no counterclaims in case. Will I be paying defendant more fines for their attorney's fees and expenses if I will file now nonsuit motion? What are my best options?
