Within 90 days he lost and cancel account. Our contract says i can give accounts as replacement or pay cash. I choose give accounts. Buyer want cash from the escrow balance of $3800.

Would someone be able to explain to me what liquid assets

Hello, would someone be able to explain to me what liquid assets are in legal terms. I am specifically curious about accounts receivable and its relation. I have always been under the impression that liquid assets referred to funds held in a bank account ones specific control. But, I recently read something that is casting doubt on that.

I am responding to a complaint issued against me. It is a

Hello, I am responding to a complaint issued against me. It is a civil case, in which the Plaintiff is demanding $221,000.I want to assert unjust enrichment, as to my mind the appropriate sum is closer to $170,000. But I fear it would be unwise to state that, as naturally, I would prefer to win this case and not pay anything. I don't want to lose the opportunity for the defense, but don't want to risk and "admittance" of even such a high sum. Any recommendations?

I need help understanding "Res Judicata/Collateral

I need help understanding "Res Judicata/Collateral Estoppel".I am involved in a civil case in which I am being sued for breach of a franchise contract. The plaintiff has thus far only demanded a monetary judgement of $220K. But, has made it know to me that they intend and expect to take possession of my business.In a previous case, in which a very large numbers of franchisee's withdrew from the company, as I have, only a monetary judgement was passed. Would the Res Judicata/Collateral Estoppel prevent something like a cease and desist from being issued?

You have helped several times already regarding the sell of

Good morning,You have helped several times already regarding the sell of our business and we thank you. Now we find ourselves with more questions that we hope you can help with.We want to take immediate possession back of the center due to what we believe is default under our Security Agreement with Debtor. Here is the letter we have drawn up but is this legal? Besides what is specifically written below, we deem itself insecure for the following reasons. Debtor has not shown any interest in the property and has not been onsite since closing a month ago. She has assigned this business to her spouse to take care of all obligations. We have recently learned he has over $200,000 in judgements from several things including Fedral tax liens (multiple) and business and lease related. We do not have full information on the debtor herself but know she also has several past judgements. This being the case, along with the information below is why we deem insecure. We would like to change locks immediately and take possession immediately because we are now concerned that his access of taking all payments and not using them to pay obligations, will cause immediate harm to the business and our interest in the Collateral. We are concerned that employees will also not be paid as the debtor or her assigned person has already messed up the last payroll that I had to fix and does not know (or is willing to learn) how to do it correctly. He comes only to pick up checks and does not always meet the dead lines of providing the business with it's immediate needs for the children in care to be properly cared for (necessary supplies) so we have some immediate concerns. Again, we are in MN. Thanks"This is to notify you that you are now in default of your obligations under the above written contract as a result of13.(a) Non-payment, when due, of any amount payable on any liabilities or failure to observe or perform any term hereof; Your failure to make the lease payment due July 1st, 2016 Your failure to make payment, transfer and secure a required license (Institutional Kitchen License), due on June 13, 2016; after given several verbal opportunities and assistance to cure.(b) if any covenant, warranty or representation shall prove to be untrue in any material respect;Your failure to secure proper insurance protection, failure to have it delivered and held by Secured Party, Failure to include loss payable clause in favor of the Secured Party and failure to include debtor and landlord as additional insured(i) if Secured Party deems itself insecure for any reason. Secured Party deems itself insecure in good faith and reasonably believes, after consideration of all the facts and circumstances then existing, that the prospect of payment and satisfaction of the obligations under this Agreement, or the performance of or observance of the covenants in this Agreement, or the value of its collateral is materially impaired. You haveImmediate: In the event of default, Secured Party shall have the right, at it's option without demand or notice to declare all or any part of the obligations due and payable; and in addition, Secured Party may exercise, in addition to the rights and remedies granted hereby, all of the rights and remedies of a Secured Party under the Uniform Commercial Code or any other applicable law.

If a second-in line creditor does not bid asset at a public

If a second-in line creditor does not bid for an asset at a public auction and the first-in-line creditor is the successful bidder, is the sale final even if a fair value was not paid for the asset, or, can the second-in-line creditor assert that the transfer (albeit involuntary) was fraudulent since fair or equivalent value was not paid?

I have a Short Term Disability claim approved through March

I have a Short Term Disability claim approved through March 21 to April 28. Per the insurance company evaluating/deciding the STD claim I was to return back to work on April 29. My doctor certified me to go back to work first on June 13. Since June 13 my employer has NOT allowed me to resume working. They have put me on UNPAID LEAVE and NO MEDICAL BENEFITS until my employer has provided some accommodations my doctor has ordered: working normal business hours 9-5:30 PM. Prior to my hospitalization on March 21 I was working Swiss European hours from Milwaukee, WI. I am working in Information Systems management role. My diagnosis is Bipolar Type 2, which I understand is a disability.My employer is requesting me to provide medical substantiation from April 28 to present day (July 5). They did NOT allow me to resume work on June 13 - even though I was in Europe on June 13 and I still am until July 26.1) My employer (US Branch) did NOT have the accommodations for a 9-5:30 PM office job in Milwaukee ready on April 29 (NEW role in my global company) - then what is their legal right to hold me back from resuming my old job while I am in Europe with UNPAID leave? My manager in Switzerland wanted me back and my performance rating was EXCELLENT in both BEHAVIORS and RESULTS (highest possible).2) Does my employer (US Branch) have a legal case for NOT paying my salary April 29 to June 13 when they DO NOT allow me to resume work on June 13? They did know per my doctor's instruction sent to them on April 29 that I was not to return back to work until June 13 with NORMAL BUSINESS HOURS as an accommodation.Appreciate your answer. Thank You.
