We are part of a Fastpitch softball organization in Ohio.

We are part of a Fastpitch softball organization in Ohio. This was are 2nd year. Before membership money was taken this year. A majority decided we should create a board. A board was created. No bylaws, constitution or mission statement ever was introduced to be voted on. The president had a EIN # for our team account attached to his Ss#. The plans were to follow through to get a non profit status. We meet monthly. End of the season we have a surplus of money. Most likely shouldn't have had. Numerous attempts were made and motions to spend money on professional lessons for the athletes, cpa and legal services all voted down by the majority of the board. Season is over. The majority removed money from our account $8.000.00 as a result of a majority meeting. The majority meeting failed to notify 3 members of the board of the meeting. They then created a new account and removed the president as a signer on the account. The prosecutors office launched a investigation, calling the act theft by deception. The investigation is on going. The day the money was removed from the account. The president found out that the Vice President and treasurer were involved. He removed and relieved them from their positions as board members through group text of the entire board. The Vice President admits that since it was out in the open now, they planned on asking for his resignation on Mondays scheduled board meeting. The removal of the funds happened on the Thursday before the Monday's meeting.Upon arriving at the bank, the president was told by the bank manager the treasure told them they had a official meeting and that he had been removed. This is why the bank moved the money. The president was able to show text confirmation that in fact he had not been removed and that they planned on doing it 4 days from now on Monday.1)My question is would the board be governors under Ohio law in absence of bylaws?2)Was there meeting legal when they didn't notify all the board members3) was the removal of the funds theft by deception?4) is the removal of Vice President and treasurer deemed legal and justified giving what happened.5) is it legal to have a special meeting about financials? Seeing how this was the only outcome from the special meeting.6) if you have a special meeting are you required to turn in meeting minutes? If so what is the time frame allowed?

A month ago a Florida Inmate put a request in to transfer

A month ago a Florida Inmate put a request in to transfer 60000 from his Inmate Trust Account to a Private Financial Institution as allowed under FAC 33-203.201. The Inmate has given me a Durable Power of Attorney and I have been trying to contact the DOC as to why the delay at first they gave me several excuses that were not valid and now they won't answer my emails and have not sent the funds. Do I need a injunction to mandate they complete the transaction? If so where would I file it. The Inmate is in Perry, Florida but the DOC office is in Tallahassee.

My ex-wife and I were divorced in 2003, when my daughter was

Hello, My ex-wife and I were divorced in 2003, when my daughter was 5 years old, and we filed our child support order in Colorado at that time. I want to note that the age of emancipation was not identified in the order, My daughter and her mother moved to Minnesota from Colorado several years ago when my daughter was about 10 years old. I've been paying child support on time every month, and now my daughter graduates and then turns 18 in July. Minnesota law states that emancipation occurs at 18 years of age, where as Colorado law states that it occurs at 19 years of age. Which state would we follow in regards ***** *****? The child support order is still filed in Colorado, and was never re-filed after 2003. In addition, her mother is moving out of state again, but I believe my daughter will be living with her grandmother, remaining in Minnesota. What do I do in that case?

My father is in a nursing home. I have POA. A week ago I went down to see him only to find out he had surgery without my consent. He has dementia. The nursing home, the doctor that performed the surgery nor the hospital contacted me. It was not a life threatening problem. This has never happened before and he has been in the hospital many times. Don't know where to go from here. Is it legal that they did this without consent?

It is a family issue.... a little complicated.... - let me

Customer: ***** ***** - and it is a family issue.... a little complicated.... - let me explain.... My husbands, ex-wife - mother to his 2 children - was just released from prison last Wednesday, on Friday she retained a lawyer in Orlando (we live in Alachua County), and she is going to fight for custody of the children... Prior to her sentence - they shared custody - with her being the primary, so they lived with her - and per the divorce and custody arrangement - he saw the children on a particluar schedule. Then - she was sentenced to serve 6 years, and be on probation for 15 years after that. She served 5.1 years, and was on work release for the last 1.5 years. JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: Absolutely - what other details would you like? JA: OK got it.

I live in AZ. I just finished earning my degree from ASU and

I live in AZ. I just finished earning my degree from ASU and applied for academic recognition (summa cum laude), but was told I don't meet the requirements.The written documentation I was provided states that I need to earn 56 credits, with no other requirements cited or references to additional conditions. Yet ASU states their website clarifies that I need to earn 56 credits taken at ASU, and that credits I transferred do not count.It appears that this situation stems from an error on the written documentation provided to me. I believe that even though this was an error, that I have still complied with what I was provided and should be granted my academic recognition.To provide me with written documentation that I have complied with, only to deny me what I was provided in writing that would earn, is akin to a "bait and switch".., at minimum it's some kind of breach of contract.Do I have a case?

Iwas born in 1948 with last name Spence. Sometime during the mid to late 80's I began signing and using the last name Spencer. The DMV, Social Security, employers also had no problem changing my name and never asked for any kind of legal document proving I had made the change. Just this week I received an offer of employment by a university in Tennessee. Their HR department contacted me about the difference in surname from my application and graduate transcript. I explained that I had changed my last name almost thirty years ago and although they have no problem with that fact, they want me to send them proof that it (my name) has been changed. I never had that done legally. Should I go through the process of petitioning the court for a change now or is there a less cumbersome and simpler (translation = less expensive) way to show them? IDK....is there a de facto or something akin to "common law" in effect since I've been using the name for thirty years?
