This question deals specifically with California Law and I

This question deals specifically with California Law and I prefer fo have a California attorney answer this question. Thank you.I am leasing a building to a tenant that is a California Corporation (Corp1, started 2014). For this question I will call this corporation ABC MNO XYZ, Inc.Turns out, this tenant has another California Corporation (Corp 2, started 2012) has a different name completely.Corp 2 registered a DBA with the county recorder in 2012. Published this DBA. The DBA is "ABC MNO XYZ." Same as/identical to Corp 1 except for the "Inc.".After the lease was signed by ABC MNO XYZ, Inc. (Corp 1), we discovered that he has been signing building permits, business records, city filings, etc. as "ABC MNO XYZ" ...No "Inc."Further, with some research, we discover in the California Business Corp name search that Corp 2 is suspended.Also, his our tenant the president of Corp 1 was/is also the President of Corp 2Could someone help me understand what "shell/sham" game is being played? This fellows father is a real-estate lawyer.Can someone point me to some California codes/laws to help me learn about this? Something doesn't sit right.Thanks

I am a freelance copyeditor. I I recently completed a job

I am a freelance copyeditor. I I recently completed a job for a client, but the client is unsatisfied. For this particular job, no contracts were signed, as it was only a $250 job.I feel as if this client was out to get a free service to begin with, because I did a very full job and the client is looking for every reason why a full refund is required to her by law, even though these reasons did not factor into her dissatisfaction.In my initial proposal to her, this is what I said of my services:"As an editor, my work usually includes revisions for grammar, punctuation, spelling, vocabulary, syntax, format, flow, and general errors in typing. I also make it my job to note any inconsistencies or questionable areas in your content that you might review and offer you ideas, but I am happy to discuss your specific needs.All editing is done digitally, and all changes are tracked so that you can see each revision made if you so wish."That plus a sample edit of my work was the extent of what I gave the client as far as what to expect. She is saying that she is dissatisfied with the number of remaining errors in her work. I explained that editing is a multi-level process and that remaining errors are to be expected after I am finished. I also apologized if there was any misunderstanding of what she could expect, mentioned that I would add a disclaimer to my page for future reference, and offered to go back over it again to do further work if she was unclear of what to expect.She is, however, rejecting my offer to do further work, saying that she understood that there would be errors remaining, and saying that she will only accept a full refund. Despite her admitting that she understood that she would not receive a perfect job, though, she is saying that because I did not have that disclaimer stating that she would not receive a perfect job I am required by law to give her a full refund (again, even though she said she understood without the disclaimer).So this is my question. Am I required to give her a refund in this case? I think I did my job very, very well, but she is not budging.

I am responding to a civil complaint revolving around a

Hello. I am responding to a civil complaint revolving around a breach of franchise agreement. I would like to assert a Misrepresentation by the Plaintiff on account of their claim of having 170+ locations. In reality it is closer to 80 locations, as several years back many of the franchisees withdrew from the corporation. That withdrawal resulted in a rather large lawsuit that I am considering referencing in my response. But, technically, those franchisees lost said case. Am I correct in assuming it would be unwise for me to reference a case in which the losing side and I have the same breach in common?
